After a brief hiatus we are back with another installment of ‘The Collection’ guest mix series. With this mix and exclusive interview we reached out to Jinco, formerly of Goshfather & Jinco, to jam his tunes and pick his brain. Currently residing in Los Angeles, CA, Jinco has been making waves all year, with various hit singles released on Trap Nation, Elysian Records, and more. His tracks are always very musical, ranging from cinematic trap vibes to future bass feels. If you aren’t familiar, get familiar.
Tune Collective: Hey Jinco, really glad to have you for this installment of ‘The Collection’. You’ve released two records with Trap Nation this year. They’ve both been very successful singles, boasting millions of plays. Will you continue to release with Trap Nation? Do you have any records coming out soon that you’d like to tell us about?
Jinco: Ya working with Trap Nation this year has been incredible. Really stoked with the first two releases with them and we have many more to come – My next one with Trap Nation comes out in October and then I have another in November. Both are singles that I’m really stoked on.
TC: Your Adrian Lux remix is extremely musical with keys, strings, drums, and brass samples all incorporated. What inspired your immense creativity in this remix?
J: Teenage crime has always been a favorite of mine. I remember when I first got into dance music in 2010 I went to EDC and I heard Swedish house mafia play it and it just resonated with me. All these years later I wanted to do a remix of a classic and Teenage Crime was just right there.
As far as the idea for the track – I’ve been super inspired by all these producers pushing the genre and I wanted to create a hybrid that bridged a lot of different instruments into one place. I have always loved orchestral music and movie scores/trailer music so combining all these elements into one song just seemed like a fun experiment. Something that I had never done before and I’m really pleased with how it turned out.
TC: You did a good bit of touring as GF & J. Do you have any tours forming at the moment, or are you mostly just performing at one-off events while you continue to stack up music?
J: There’s some things brewing – nothing confirmed 100% – but ya for the most part, I’ll be doing just one-offs for now and continue to put of tunes.
TC: Who are some artists you’re listening to right now? Give us a few names, and include a couple up and comers you think are killing it at the moment.
J: Oh man there are so many good artists out there right now – I’ve been really impressed by Sean Turk, Jawster, Gostan, T-mass has been murdering it this year, same with Jaykode, Holly, Levianth, Fury – these kids from Vancouver are crushing (We have a sick collab that we’re wrapping up too)
TC: Finally, what can we expect from Jinco for the rest year?
J: You can expect a lot of music. I’m really focused on making tunes right now and finishing up everything ive made this year. I’m planning a large body of music release as well so keep an eye out for an announcement soon.
