Joplin played at our 17th anniversary of Slinky Family Gathering April 29-May 1, 2016. She played 2 sets during the weekend. One set was at night and one was a special morning set. This mix is a re-recording of the morning set she performed live at Slinky 17.
We had a problem with our live recordings and the resulting quality was not good enough to release.
(Pork n Beats, Slinky-LA)
With an unusual and intriguing musical upbringing– spanning Bluegrass to Rock, Classical to Jazz and Punk to modern day Electronic, Joplin’s musical style can truly be called eclectic. For the last 13+ years, she has been mainly recognized for her deep and funky House grooves, but her more recent repertoire extends far beyond to include Afro-Latin-jazz and Blues influenced Downtempo, Nu Disco, Broken Beat and Funk.Creator of LA based music and visual collective Pork & Beats, Joplin finds herself building musical “environments” anywhere from yoga studios to downtown warehouses, art galleries to Hollywood clubs, the forest to the desert and beyond.
She has run several successful residencies over the years, including Prana in Pasadena, Delay in Long Beach and Venice, the Deep Soul Lounge residing within Marques Wyatt’s Deep-LA, and a 5 year summer residency at Moonshadows in Malibu, still going strong. 2011 saw the release of Joplin and production partner Skaggs well received “Orport EP” on Joshua Heath’s Golden State Recordings, and in January of 2012 Joplin joined the artist roster at Pocket Underground, for whom she has played many times in the past at Lightning in a Bottle, Woogie Nights and various other Pocket related events.
