Jin Jin releases Fire Me Up

Jin Jin releases Fire Me Up

Produced by London based super-producer and long term collaborator, Bless Beats (Wiley, De La Soul, Skepta). No stranger to buzz, JinJin recently shot to online fame with the cult track "Cashpoint Drama" featuring everyone's favourite tongue-in-cheek rap genius, Mikill Pane and a killer video to go with it!

More recently, JinJin has been featured in influential US based Vibe magazine’s “50 Under The Radar Artists” alongside a host of respected household names. This track certainly makes a big statement, with bold beats, bombastic bass and a blistering synth hook.  

Jin jin is a singer and a songwriter originally from Manchester. She fell in love with music whilst helping her Granddad in his reggae music store at a very young age. Jin Jin got into song writing by accident when she guest vocalled and co wrote on a Roll Deep record "Do Me Wrong" which later became their first single off their album "Return Of The Big Money Sound". This attracted Wiley's attention who then asked Jin Jin to write for him on another track produced by Bless Beats (Wearing my Rolex).  Bless and Jin Jin later penned a collaboration called "Sex in the City" which was released on Moshi Moshi. They continue to work together and as a team have penned tracks for Roll Deep, Rascals, Dionne Bromfield and Tinchy Stryder, amongst others. Recently signed to Biglife Music Publishing by the legendary manager and publisher, Jazz Summers, they continue to write for other Artists as well as their own forthcoming project. Jazz summers says, "Jin Jin is one of the hardest working and most talented young writers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, you can expect some amazing things from her! ...”

Best known for creating Wiley’s 2008 smash ‘Wearing My Rolex’, which debuted at number 2 in the singles chart, selling over 300,000 copies, renditions which followed by the likes of Little Boots and Hot Chip for Jo Whiley’s Live Lounge session on Radio 1, took Bless Beats’ work well beyond the ears of the post‐grime loving electro pop massive. “The joke is I made that beat on my mobile phone at 2am, trying to prove to someone I could make dance music. I proved that alright.” Prove it he did. Similar success with Skepta’s summer anthem, ‘Rolex Sweep’, which Coldplay decided to cover at their London gig, opened up Bless Beats to a melting pot of artists, far removed from his upbringing in east London’s home of grime, Bow (E3). A publishing deal with Sony has seen him take on writing sessions with the likes of Paul Tucker (Lighthouse Family), X Factor contestants Mz Frank and Dylan Burns (Bodyrockers), while he continues to work on new material for Ironik, Tinie Tempah and Wiley.
