Party Illegal / Pinhook Present: Mina
Party Illegal & the Pinhook are proud to present UK producer Mina on the east coast leg of her U.S. tour.

"Mina is an artist whose reputation has steadily amplified over the years thanks to two acclaimed EPs for Enchufada and remixes for Mixpak, NLV Records & Mad Decent. Influenced by her love of afrobeats, dancehall and UK funky, Mina’s vibrant and melodic tracks fuse together all kinds of syncopated rhythms from around the world. Outside of the UK Mina has collaborated with vocalists and producers from Peru, Jamaica and Ghana, as well as a string of upcoming tour dates in Asia, North America and Europe. In August 2017 Mina recorded one of the most popular Boiler Room sessions of the year, with the video streamed in excess of 1 million times. Recognized by FACT Mag as a ‘producer to watch for 2016′, Mina has garnered consistent praise from the likes of Branko, Toddla T and Nina Las Vegas, serving only to further confirm her status as one of the UK’s most exciting rising talents of the last two years."

Gemynii (The Conjure)
Gemynii (The Conjure)
Artist by trade and DJ by craft, Gem produces experiences that seduce the audience and lures them into her meticulously cultivated audiovisual realm. Though she asserts herself as a selector more than a DJ. She is an open format DJ with an extensive collection of music that represents the best of Hip-Hop, R&B, Dancehall, Baltimore Club, Afrobeat, Rock & Roll, Trap, and Twerk. Since the summer of 2016, Gemynii has been become a regular face at venues such as Arcana and the Pinhook and is the curator of The Conjure - The Celebration of Black & Brown Femmes.

Birdgherl loves to play global bass, house music, 90s vogue house music, 90s R&B, most anything created in Chicago, most anything that ends in -ton and is pretty open to a lot of genre
Queen Plz (Illegal)
Queen Plz (Illegal)
Queen Plz is a scientist, a feminist, a dirty south enthusiast. Her art is inseparable from her politics, and her DJ sets will take you on a meandering journey from the rapid fire of the New York ballroom scene to the slow southern drawl of UGK. She aims to move you, in one way or another, so close your eyes, drop your inhibitions, and follow the night where it leads you."

Queen Plz has been throwing parties in the triangle area for almost five years. She is one of the original founders and resident djs of the monthly Illegal parties at The Pinhook in Durham, as well as holding it down for the queer party scene on a regular basis. She has opened for Jubilee, Lief, Mykki Blanco, TT the Artist, and Mighty Mark.

Her mixtape "First Amendment Area" is a recent winner of the "Bull City in The Mix" local mixtape competition.
