Gina Jeanz Delivers “Dopammine”

Gina Jeanz, a Namibian electronic music producer, DJ, and creative based in South Africa, has had a very busy 2021! As she geared up for the release of her long-awaited debut album Lucid Theory, Gina teased a lot of music beforehand. In fact, she began teasing the project with her trendy track “Sun Spot”, which was supported by Spotify’s ‘Global Club Music‘ playlist and Apple Music’s ‘New In Dance‘ playlists. Following up such an impressive track, Gina returned late October with her brand new single titled “DOPAMINE”. 

Her self-produced single, “Dopamine” features Zambian alternative soul vocalist MOONGA K. The trendy track served up as a groove-filled dance floor filler powered by lush deep house and future bass sensibilities. In addition to MOONGA K. exploding on the track with his captivating vocals, infectious delivery, and commanding presence. Making the single an exciting listen from start to finish.

The “Dopamine” Influence

As the lyrics suggest, ‘Dopamine’ is about regaining your energy and being able to celebrate life again. With the world finally emerging from the global pandemic of the last two years, the song resonates as a beautiful and positive message. When reflecting on the inspiration behind the record, Gina Jeanz goes on to say: 

 “This track particularly touches on mental health. I wanted to approach the production in a more uplifting/upbeat tone. Mostly because I felt that having this platform to produce music and express myself. While dealing with my own personal journey. It really carried me through. MOONGA K. who features on the track also expresses his own thoughts and feelings. After sharing our personal stories in the studio, we decided to work on ‘Dopamine’ and make it a celebratory track. In short, it’s about accepting the struggle. Knowing that it doesn’t define you, celebrating life and working towards overcoming one’s personal battles”.
