A relative newcomer to the Portland scene, Ginkgo has wasted no time building a community of DJs, artists, and dancers aiming for nothing less than the elevation of dancefloor culture. Believe You Me, the new deep house monthly party he founded with partner Andy Warren, has been welcomed with enthusiasm by ecstatic dancers, Burners, and old-school house heads alike.
Musically, Ginkgo’s take on house music calls for many adjectives: melodic, tribal, melancholic, dreamy, uplifting, psychedelic, global, playful, devastating. Sunrise sets are a specialty, when Ginkgo uses heart-melting tracks to dissolve boundaries and put smiles on the faces.
