 Jimmy Penguin (12 Albums, 57 Tracks)

Artist

LOCATION:Galway, Ireland

Jimmy The Hideous Penguin is one of Ireland’s hidden electronic diamonds. Hailing from Galway in the blustery west of Ireland, Jimmy makes music that varies between sultry bass heavy electronica, progressive scratch and slow burning ambient tracks richly orchestrated with organic instrumentation. Yep this guy is a jack of all trades.

If you don’t like reading, then here’s some audio & video which will give you an idea of what to expect from Mr. Penguin : http://www.youtube.com/user/CommunitySkratch

Jimmy the Hideous Penguin is a young man from Galway with a serious scratch addiction. And shower as he might, he just can’t get rid of it. One of the people behind Galway’s ‘Community Skratch Games’ (an annual week long celebration of scratch music and culture), a member of the infamous scratch ensemble ‘Vince Mack Mahon’ and also a Dj / Producer in his own right, Jimmy has dedicated the best part of the last decade to advancing the possiblities of the turntable as a musical instrument.


Lot’s of people are Dj’s and producers these days, but for Jimmy Dj’ing IS production and vice-versa. “I tend to make quite a bit of sample-based stuff but I write most of the music myself. My live setup and my studio setup is usually pretty similar, I use a turntable, a Rane mixer and a Jamman loop pedal. I run that into my computer for basic effects e.g. reverb. I also use Serato, guitar rig and a Microkorg synthesiser.”
