Jake Zimma is an indie artist emerging in The Bay Area. Jake is a singer-songwriter and guitarist with sounds that combine hip hop, reggae, R&B, rock, and most things funky. His sound combines electronic production with live instrumentation, and is often compared to Jack Johnson, Chet Faker and Post Malone. Despite the comparisons, Jake Zimma’s sound is entirely his own.
Debajo Sound System is a Hip-Hop and World Music collective who plays energetic and danceable songs written in multiple languages. With Hip-Hop as its backbone, Debajo Sound System draws inspiration from a wide assortment of genres including Musica Andina, Afrobeat, Rumba, Dance Hall, Reggaetón, and Cumbia. Debajo Sound System’s music speaks truth to power tackling relevant issues of our time including Indigenous sovereignty, immigration, systemic oppression, and the search for love, peace, and wisdom through ancestral teachings.
DJ Mai Girl plays festivals, clubs, shows, and private events all over the West Coast and beyond. Her unique blend of genres and hand-picked selections– whether it be hip hop, soul, house, jazzy vibes, old school jams, Afro, Caribbean or Latin rhythms– keep people moving all night. She consistently plays one Stevie or Prince song every set to remind herself of why she started DJing in the first place.
