House music is a genre of electronic dance music created by club DJs andmusic producers in Chicago in the early 1980s.
Chinjong x Chinjong, a combination of a DJ and a Producer fell in love with this genre of music and are paving its way and at the same time penetrating the industry with their sound. Their collaboration with Alpha Better Records singer Mr. Leo gave them a big push which helped broaden the minds of music lovers who couldn’t find the words to describe or explain the kind of music they do. 237Showbiz decided to reach out to the talented duo and we had to gist about a lot. Below is how it went down with Ch!njong x Ch!njong
@237Showbiz: Chinjong X Chinjong a duo of DJs bringing in a new flare in the Cameroonian music industry. Can you guys tell us who Chinjong X Chinjong are?
Well Ch!njong x Ch!njong isn’t just a DJ duo. We’re House music artists composed of a DJ(Tracey) and a producer(Lonie)
@237Showbiz: How did you both come up with the name Ch!njong x Ch!njong” some people who got to know you guys through the Shayo song said it sounded Chinese!
– Chinjong happens to be our last name. Since we wanted our name to be as authentic as possible we decided to maintain it. Its actually a Bamileke name.
@237Showbiz: We’ve seen groups of dancers, singers and comedians before, how did both Chinjong X Chinjong siblings decide to become DJs? What spearheaded the passion?
-We fell in love with Electronic/ House music at the same time and we decided to merge our talents and create something beautiful and unique.
@237Showbiz: You are said to play EDM music, can you expatiate more on this and how different it is to other music genres?
-Electronic Dance Music or EDM is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres which includes AfroHouse, Progressive House,Trance,Dubstep,Techno to name a few. EDM differentiates it self from other genres in many ways, first of songs that fall under the electronic umbrella do not necessarily have vocals, electronic music producers are the performers. You don’t necessarily have to be a vocalist to be an artist.
