Gina was born and raised in Namibia,  lived there her whole life and moved to Cape Town in 2010 to study Graphic Design. She never studied music, it was something that just grew on he and wouldn’t let he go until she did something about it. She was thinking of studying music, but at the time she was still in high school and it wasn’t seen as a career, this didn’t change her mind though. Fortunately she had a cousin (Nel Dee) who studied sound engineering in the UK who gave her the program FL studio as a means to start somewhere. He gave her advise on how to go about using it and literally left her with it to figure out her own melodies. She is glad he never tried to control the way she produced a beat. He would just advice and give me pointers here and there, as far as her work, he has always encouraged her to keep switching it up and she has been at it ever since.

Gina started producing in 2007. At the moment she is strictly producing but she is also thinking of dj’ing and playing her music at club. It’s still a work in progress but it’s defiantly on her list of things to do in the next couple of years.

 Gina is inspired by MJ, Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill, Flying Lotus, Ameen, Timbaland and a whole lot of producers who truly take the time to craft and experiment with their music. She grew up on R&B but she never been afraid to branch out and listen to other genres, that is why she tends to play around with different sounds in her music. She likes to keep things interesting, she treats her beat like a canvas, it’s about being open minded because you just never know how unusual experiments turn out.

Gina is an independent (freelance) producer, she hasn’t worked with a set record label yet, she focuses more on working individually with the artists. At the moment she is working on a large collection of beats. She wants to make sure that when the time comes and she has to take her music to a record label it would be a matter of getting the thumbs up and nothing less. At the end of the day she enjoys what she does and aims to make sure you have the music on repeat.

Gina has worked with a couple of up coming artists here in Cape Town as well as some international ones. She has also managed to team up with some local/international producers on small remixes and a few beats.

Besides music, Gina has a great passion for graphic design, abstract art, photography and film. When she not working on music she is working on something creative. She’s also a professional model and a contemporary dancer. She is driven by art, “I see it all around me, it’s my energy and what I thrive on.”
