The GRAMMY nominated duo, Dominic “DJ MECCA” Jordan and Jimmy “Jimmy G” Giannos, met in 2007 at the “Lost in Love” music video shoot for Polow the Don’s artists I-15 at Palms Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Jimmy was interested in working with Castro from I-15 on some of his artist Jazz’s songs. They officially met up a week later at Odds On Recording Studios in Henderson, NV. After vibing at the studio in a all night session, they realized each other talents and began to create together. They coined their name “The Audibles” from it’s root definition “to be heard” and “to change the game” as seen by quarterbacks in football. Castro and Das offered an opportunity for the two to move to Atlanta, GA and develop there art further under producer Polow Da Don.
Through working with Polow in 2008, The Audibles went to co-write and produce songs on I-15′s album that was never released. They went on to co-produce records with Zone 4 signed (at the time) producers Hit Boy and Chase N Cashe of the Surf Club. Jimmy secured a placement on The Game’s Red Album in the latter years. After living in Atlanta for a couple years, they gained great insight of the industry and decided to migrate back to Las Vegas.
Their first major production hit came with Interscope recording artist Mishon’s “Turn it Up” in 2009. It featured Roscoe Dash. The song reached #80 on the Billboard Hot 100 and attained them widespread attention for the first time. They also co- produced Young Money’s 3rd single “Girl I Got You” with Mr. Pyro on YMCMB’s first album entitled “We are Young Money. Through their partnership with Future Music executives Mally Mall and Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd, the duo went on to create records for Redman’s Reggie album and landed an instant cult hip hop classic entitled “Lite 1 Witcha Boi” featuring Method Man and Bun B. They achieved huge success with their production on Lupe Fiasco’s L.A.S.E.R.S album with their smash performance single, “I Don’t Wanna Care Right Now” featuring Jason “MDMA” Boyd. Not only did Lupe perform this record twice on tour at every show, but critics stressed that it was the most favored out of the whole album.
Their ‘sound’ is mostly melodic synthesizer riffs, Sampling Keyboard and modules. An Audibles’ production is typically characterized by flat, punchy drum sounds and the use of module presets. Their choice keyboards are the Motif XS8, Fantom, Korg Triton, Moog Voyager and soft synths. They are also well known for using FL Studio and incorporating live percussion and acoustic instruments into their music. Another sound found on Audibles hip hop productions are their distinctive use of synth lines and their blend of hip hop styled verses mixed with an electro style driven hooks, as seen on Lupe’s “I don’t Wanna Care Right Now.”
They came across an superstar in the making by the name of Sasha Sirota under a fluke. Sasha applied for an engineer position at Future Music Studios where the two work out of. They discovered that he was much more than an “engineer” and realized not only his multi-instrumental talents, but his amazing singing ability. They went onto signing him and began immediately to work on his masterpiece in the making.
In 2011, they teamed up with Interscope recording artist and Alabama native Yelawolf to work on his debut album “Radioactive.” They recorded five songs, four of which made the album. “Let’s Roll” which was co- produced by Mr. Pyro and Eminem, became the second lead single and featured Kid Rock. It received radio success and helped catapult Yela’s career to mainstream hip hop.
In 2012, they went on to work with Lupe Fiasco on his newest single “Bitch Bad” on his forthcoming album, “Food and Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album.” The two teamed up with Poo Bear to work on his R&B opus “BEATS 2 BREAK UP 2″ which they did almost all the production aside from “Made You Break Up With Me” produced by Mr. Pyro. They have worked with artist such as; Chris Brown, Tyga, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Jennifer Hudson, and The Game for their up and coming projects. They are also currently working on Future Music signed recording artist Poo Bear, Jazz, Sasha Sirota and Edamami’s Debut albums.
