Eli Jungle Radio - Spinz
Gamez Ft. Famous Fame

In the early 1990s, the underground hip hop scene was controlled by the West Coast, every top college track was high in percussion, low in bass and seemed to hard for most outside the east coast skyline. That’s not to say their brand of hip-hop wasn’t good, the West Coast did invent gangsta rap if you want to get critical. But this style can be considered early boom bap and at the time proved effective in the nurturing of the genre by creating a big sound.

What Spinz has on the table is something that was started when he was “shooting, scoring, from the Ox to Switerzland” on his now highly acclaimed boom bap revival track from 2007 , “Knock That Door In” produced by Swiss producer DJ LKB, whom he made “Life, Love and the Low End” in 3 days in a studio in Switzerland. Releasing the album on his own moniker Vibra Music Group to highly acclaimed reviews by Okayplayer, XXL Magazine, as well as being named Urb Magazine’s “Next 1000” artist featured in the magazine alongside Amy Winehouse, Bishop Lamont, and Kid Sister.

Spinz triumphant march to indie hip hop kingdom came after releasing 12“ singles like “1 In A Million Ft. Koolade” produced by platinum hip hop producer Koolade in 2009, and “Ready Steady” Produced by Top 100 electro DJ and producer Umek B/W “Simple Man Ft. Frenkie & Ariano” which has been featured on Soulassassins.com and listed on the hot list of L.A. Times.

Spinz vinyl fetish has kicked in again with his latest 45, “Gamez featuring Famous Fame” his latest collaboration with Famous Fame (Mark Young), member of Oxnard,California group Nevamind and longtime associate of Spinz, sharing the same management and promotional agency FND Entertainment. 20 years in the making to be exact, because Spinz and Famous Fame grew up together going to the same high school, and later doing shows alongside Spinz and his early-career band The Dirt Farmers.

For Spinz new single he brought back old comrade and Swiss producer DJ LKB and made a classic high in percussion, low in bass sound and chopped the samples close to perfection. West Coast underground hip hop at it’s finest, while still appealing to east coast ears. Spinz continues to push a heavy sound in his music while maintaining his raw passionate vocal lines that blend into the natural delay of the song, while Famous Fame brings a powerful voice over witty punch lines that make the two blend together in perfect hip hop harmony.
