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. “

Gingee Drops New EP + Los Angeles Release Party


Our friend Gingee just dropped her Tambol EP a project that intelligently brings together all the best elements of her many talents.  Tambol is the Filipino word for “drum,” this EP fuses traditional live Filipino sounds and instruments like Kulintang (gongs), Tinikling (bamboo clappers) and other percussion instruments added to various styles of global bass in the form of zouk, moombahton, dancehall, and house.  Gingee also includes various styles of hip hop with cuts, raps and poetry.

Get the album here:

…and what’s a new release without a proper release party?  We are super excited about this Saturday as Magic Garage’s Sound Paint returns to the Airliner in Los Angeles.  The show is a promising line-up of bands, artists and some of our favorite DJs including Jimbo Jenkins, Yukicito, Mike Styles, and Gingee!

New Single: Sev Seveer feat. Megiapa – C.S.G. from SEASONS CHANGE [Beats of All-Nations]

Words by Mike Styles


Yesterday we announced the upcoming release of our first compilation SEASONS CHANGE, a 13-track production feature available on Monday August 17th.  We put out a short-teaser on our instagram featuring some wavy cover art by Deladeso and an undisclosed beat from the project, but is 15-seconds ever enough?  Absolutely not.

Today we are pleased to launch the project with the lead single by none other than Sev Seveer featuring Megiapa.  Seveer’s Constant Elevation: Odessa Star [BOAN001] album ends with Megiapa soulfully, jazzing it up on “Clarity Sequence.”  Picking up where we left off and bringing us into the next phase, we are beyond excited to share this free download of “C.S.G.” by Sev Seveer & Megiapa.  Enjoy!

Beats of All-Nations presents Seasons Change


On Monday August 17th Beats of All-Nations will launch Seasons Change, a 13-track feature compilation of beats and compositions that will be available to listeners for free.   On this collection we are revisited by artists whom we’ve worked with in the past, and several of which making their Beats of All-Nations debut. Following the success of his album In the Moment, Makaya McCraven, a pioneer in the new jazz era offers the live-drum heavy “Midman.” Bombay Da Realest, producer of Blu’s Good to Be Home album, hits hard with the funk inspired “Dig This”.  Sev Seveer, the highly creative abstract hip hop manufacturer of our first official release, Constant Elevation: Odessa Star, returns with vocalist Megiapa on the vibed out “C.S.G.”  International sounds however are not forgotten by Co. Fee on the Brazilian inspired “White Sands.”  The compilation comes complete with exclusive artwork designed by Deladeso.

Beats of All-Nations, founded by Mike Styles in 2009, did not set out to be a label, nor have we conformed to that title. We are a community of artists, producers, deejays music and culture enthusiasts. Our operation is small, though we are represented by many with a goal to continuously raise the bar while keeping the art diverse and the vibes just right. We feature artists you may already love, but especially those you may have never heard before. Along the way, we have given independent artists a voice and an open space to create while introducing them to new audiences. Beats of All-Nations’ very own Porchlite gets busy on the smoothed out “Where are the Roses.” French producer 7even Sun, of our second release Escapologies and our veteran engineer Choco also supply some enlightening rhythms to the project. Other contributors include wave Groove and DJ Erok of Void Shift, Radius (Etc. Records) and Repeated Measures (New Los Angeles/Beat Cinema). The comp opens with music by Aux Voyager and closes with a colossal tune by Sleep to Static two veteran producers from our community. Seasons Change will be available for free download on August 17th, 2015 exclusively on
