JMNI (pronounced “Gemini”) is a brand new LA-based soul-hop duo consisting of Jonathan “JM” Malone and Mark Pelli. Not too long ago, they released a lovely hip-hop and R&B tune, entitled, “Gemini.”
JMNI – “Gemini” single
“This song invites people into the Gemini Gang. You must be a Gemini like me. Clearly got split-personalities. We’re perfectly imperfect and every moment’s worth it. You must be a Gemini like me. The verse continues this lyrical direction playfully. It’s a lighthearted song that’s just meant to make people feel good.” – JMNI explained
‘Gemini’ contains a relatable narrative and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Chance The Rapper, Childish Gambino, and Macklemore. The likable tune possesses lush instrumentation flavored with hip-hop and contemporary R&B elements. Furthermore, “Gemini” follows hot on the heels of JMNI’s debut single, entitled, “Never Let You Go.”
JM is a LA native, growing up at 109th and Crenshaw and then moving to Palmdale at 12. He’s been deeply involved in hip-hop and R&B music his entire life. His uncle, Jerry “Buddy” Long, has written songs for The Temptations. A close family friend built JM a conga drum when he was a kid, and from that point onward, the beat-making seed had been planted. The plant grew quickly and his extraordinary skills attracted the attention of many West Coast collaborators – most notably the late, great Nipsey Hussle with whom JM produced some incredible, timeless music.
Mark Pelli is a singer/multi-instrumentalist from Toronto who currently resides in Los Angeles. He is the guitarist and co-founder of the critically acclaimed group, Magic! Pelli wrote the hook of the earworm, “Rude,” which achieved #1 status around the globe. Also, he’s a prolific songwriter and producer having made songs for J. Cole (“Kevin’s Heart”), Chris Brown (“Don’t Judge Me”), Shakira (“Cut Me Deep”), Anthony Hamilton (“Comin Home”), Trey Songz (“Serial Killer”), Sabrina Claudio (six songs from “Confidently Lost”), JoJo, and Marsha Ambrosius.
