GINA JEANZ Biography

Namibian raised, Cape Town-based Music Producer and DJ Gina Jeanz has established that she is more than capable of rising to the occasion. While the world retreated into lockdown during the pandemic, Jeanz applied her time more creatively.

As a participant in Red Bull’s ‘Made in 72 Hours’ project, she virtually collaborated with musical contemporaries Hersh Sanders and Juzzy to create a new track titled ‘Tonight’ in the space of three days. The track was included on a four-track EP, featuring high profile artists including Moonchild Sanelly and The Lazarusman. Gina’s ingenuity is complimented by her passion to uplift and empower women in the industry.

Jeanz mentored for the Modzi Arts 2019 Rackless Kazi DJ Residency in Zambia, conducting educational workshops attended by aspiring female DJs. In her career as a DJ, Jeanz’ cites several appearances at leading events such as Afropunk Johannesburg (2019), Red Bull Music Festival in Johannesburg (2018), and Rocking The Daisies in Cape Town (2017). Jeanz’ rising profile has garnered significant industry attention, culminating in a cover spot for Hype Magazine in 2019.

With a new album on the way, Jeanz has received attention from Jamz Supernova and Jeremiah Asiamah, who have featured her music on BBC 1XTRA. Other airplay includes Worldwide FM and Rinse FM, and a flurry of Bandcamp releases that received nods from Afropunk and Resident Advisor on their best of Bandcamp Friday lists.
