Beats of All-Nations Radio 015: DJ Eko

BOAN RADIO 015 EKO

DJ EKO (LA/NYC), a natural ambassador sharing unique vibes from around the world from her small piece of whichever big city she’s currently residing in.  Not only a recognized tastemaker in the music world, she offers the community deeper insight on new artists and music, not just as a dj, but as a staff writer for Okayfuture, the electronic branch of Okayplayer.

Eko effortlessly weaves genres together, telling a story with her unique signature.  She’s widely known for a future R&B mix series titled “Soultronica” and loves to plays Pan-African music with her Global Bass family.  She surprises audiences with remix production of favorite tunes and her unyielding passion lies in seeking out the newest, most creative production and developing genres.

“When someone gives me open format, this is an example of what happens. Soultronica, Brazilian, African, Dancehall, Soul…all woven together with some common aesthetic thread. Traveling through like this may look a little crazy in a track listing but makes sense on the ears. xo” -DJ EKO

Beats of All-Nations Radio Episode 014: Live Session with Buyepongo

BUYE PODCAST COVER ART

We’re excited to introduce a new, live element to Beats of All-Nations Radio! In the past we have featured DJ and Producer showcases, but as we have progressed we’ve had the urge to record some of the talented live acts that we build with in the same capacity. Thanks to resident Re:Fresh[er] and Beats of All-Nations crew member Gabe Real, we have taken that step and look forward to keep this good thing moving forward!

We’ve been working with the super latin-tropical front band Buyepongo for the last four years. They’ve rocked our parties, we’ve supported as djs at their shows. We’ve done a lot together, and this past summer we did the most! To say the least the love is mutual. The Buye crew has finished up their long awaited debut album, Todo Mundo and has been prepping their album release party at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on January 30th. In the meantime they agreed to help us test pilot our live sessions podcast.

The band loaded up the car with instruments then drove from Compton to Pomona where we documented a very loose and organic intimate night of warm music on a rather cold night filled with IPAs, trees to breathe, kombucha, ginger beer and fine cheeses from around the world. We also talked to guys a bit.

Enjoy the show.  We certainly did!

Recorded live in Pomona, CA.

Todo Mundo will be available on January 29th, with an awesome release party to follow on January 30th (see below).   Pre-order tickets for the show and get the album immediately at http://buyepongo.bandcamp.com

Beats of All-Nations Radio 013: Shark Faicol

BOAN Shark Faicol Mix Cover Art

We hadn’t quite left but we’re back. We took a short break on the podcast circuit while we pushed our compilation, Seasons Change and hosted some pretty awesome events, Porchlite in the meantime was on a US/Euro tour with Epic Rap Battles of History.

And now, Beats of All-Nations Radio Episode 013 is here featuring the international house sounds of Shark Faicol, a talented DJ and musician (drums & piano) that is very close to our operation. He is one-half of Mabuhay Miles (a collab with Porchlite), a member of The Compound and gets recurring spins at the GetDownOC. He’s shared stages with Mark Farina, Nic Fanciulli, Marques Wyatt, Doc Martin, Joeski, Sonny Fodera, and Aeroplane, to name a few, and he’s prepping to open for Miguel Migs tonight in Newport Beach at Focus OC.

“This mix features selected music from: Todd Edwards, J Letto, Tom Misch, Voyeur, Konstantin Sibold, Detroit Swindle, I tried covering a lot of ground in this mix. Really went for a more international sound spanning from Chicago, Africa, Amsterdam, and more. Mix starts with slower tempo house, groovy looped based tracks. Later we explore quicker tempos that feature tracks with horns, vocals and even some classic house. Basically tried to encapsulate the funk, but place it in a house music type sensibility. “
