For this episode, we give you a uniquely crafted mix of favorites and originals by Bay Area up and comer Tinker. Fresh back from her Hawaiian Tour in February, we asked her to give us a taste of what the hype is all about. She absolutely delivered, sharing a selection of bumping tunes with tight basslines, wonky beats, and playful melodies. After setting the vibe with a cheeky remix of Henry Mancini's Pink Panther Theme, the mix slinks along with attitude, steadily increasing in tempo and injecting high levels of head-nodding bass and beats into your blood stream, warping your brain and stealing your heart. This one's not to be missed.
Appropriately nicknamed "galaxy beat girl" and the "mind-and-genres-bender," love of arpeggiation, 8 bit textures, and space age beats, are the hallmarks of Tinker's fresh sound. She has a captivating presence, earned through years of dance and fire-performance, inspiring audiences to swoon at her lush sonics or dance like mad at her driving beats and bass. Tinker is the resident laptop mistress of the long-standing and well-respected San Francisco arts collective False Profit. She is a fast-blossoming producer in her own right and is currently working on her debut EP, producing tunes in the realm of Future Beats, Galactic Crunk, and WonkyStep.
