AshTreJinkins [NCA, Apron Records / USA]

Ashtrejinkins is without question, the man of the moment. Hailing from Compton, California, ATJ's style of electronic music is still closely linked to his early beginnings in the LA beat scene. The metronome is a disregarded element and instead his beats summon the full of weight of the infamous West-coast bounce, effortlessly laid over House and Techno canvasses.
