In the music business, producer Sir Jinx might not be as famous of a name as others because he doesn’t have a signature sound that’s tagged or marketed, but, more importantly, he has the skill of harnessing the strengths of those in the booth from behind the boards. And as a result, Jinx is a master producer due to his ability to bring out the best in those he produces atop the soundscapes he tailor-makes for them.
The work speaks for itself. Just a few highlights:
-Multiple credits on Ice Cube’s early solo releases
-Multiple credits on Kool G. Rap and DJ Polo’s Live and Let Die
–Multiple credits on Xzibit’s 40 Dayz & 40 Nightz
–The remix of Public Enemy’s “Who Stole the Soul?”
-The remix of Rage Against the Machine’s “Bullet in the Head”
During this new interview with West Coast Styles, Sir Jinx chops it up with Styles and Shad for an epic conversation. Throughout the hour-long exchange, Jinx, among other things, talks about his early days in Hip-Hop, his cousin, Dr. Dre, working with Ice Cube, and how to make records that appeal to a rock audience.
