The Audibles is a Pop Music, hip hop production duo from Las Vegas, Nevada, consisting of Dominic "DJ Mecca" Jordan and Jimmy "Jimmy G" Giannos. The 2x 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 Da Don artists I-15 at the Palms Casino in Paradise, Nevada. Jimmy was interested in working with JR Castro from I-15 for one of his artist songs. They officially met up a week later at Odds On Recording Studios in Henderson. After vibing at the studio in an all night session, they realized each other talents and began to create together. They coined their name “The Audibles” from its root definition “to be heard” and “to change the game” as seen by quarterbacks in football. JR Castro and Das offered an opportunity for the two to move to Atlanta and develop their art further under producer Polow Da Don.


Before Las Vegas[edit]

Through working with Polow in 2008, The Audibles went on 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. After living in Atlanta for a couple years, they decided to move back to Las Vegas.

Rise to success[edit]

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.[1] 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 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.
