Alan Stanley Soucy Brinsmead, better known by the stage name Sinjin Hawke, is a Canadian-American electronic music producer and DJ.

Career[edit]

In late 2011, Sinjin Hawke released his first EP, "The Lights" on the Belgium-based Pelican Fly label[1] and followed it up with tours throughout Europe, North America, and Asia.[2] For this he developed a live hardware performance, which was later broadcast by Boiler Room in Los Angeles.

In mid-2012, he released "Prom Nite" on Pelican Fly and followed that up with a series of remixes for DJ Assault and DJ Funk on Membrane and Booty Call Records respectively.[3]

In 2013, he participated in the New York City instalment of the Red Bull Music Academy,[4] where he collaborated with rap producer Just Blaze on a song called “One”.[5] This came shortly after Sinjin released "Yea Hoe" with Gangsta Boo.[6]

In 2014, Sinjin Hawke and Zora Jones established Fractal Fantasy, christening it with a series of computer graphic driven audio-visual pieces.[7][8] These first pieces featured musical collaborations between them, and MikeQ, Morri$, DJ Taye and L-Vis 1990.[9]

In February 2015, it was revealed that "Wolves", from Kanye West's album The Life of Pablo, was produced by Sinjin Hawke and Cashmere Cat. The song also features Sia and Vic Mensa.

Personal life[edit]

Hawke was born in New Jersey.[10] His father, Duncan Brinsmead, is a French horn player and computer graphics programmer,[11] and his mother a university administrator.
