NEW RELEASE // Sev Seveer “Constant Elevation: Odessa Star”


Last month we announced our first official album release by Northside Chicago producer Sev Seveer with an exclusive promo.  Since his feature on our third podcast, Seveer has quickly become one of our favorite up and coming producers of today.  Constant Elevation:  Odessa Star is a cohesive 30-minute song cycle on one track, it is his first official release since 2008 and we our honored to share it with you!

Beats of All-Nations presents Sev Seveer “Constant Elevation: Odessa Star”

Words By Sev Seveer:

Constant Elevation: Odessa Star is the soundtrack to my dementia-riddled late-grandmother’s journey through cosmic space at age 91.  It is the sonic narration of my experience caring for a person who has lost their mind.  A juxtaposition of the two circumstances that I find most terrifying- being lost in space with no control, compared to being an otherwise sober-minded person gradually witnessing the loss of their mental capacity– as I have come to imagine that the two circumstances may be very similar.

About 70% of the final product was recorded improvisational in two single-take sessions.  Ultimately I strung those sessions together along with individual additions and chose to go with a 29-minute recording as opposed to individual tracks— to further simulate a lack of control in a lost-in-space/lost-in-mind circumstance.  Thus, this release is truly for advanced listeners only.  It is not straight beats all the way through, in fact there are really only about 5 or 6 beats here.  The recording is more of a journey that explodes into beat music on occasion.

With the various parts I had the word “movement” more in mind:  there are 8 “movements” in CEOS, all of which are the main themes of the perception of Odessa’s experience.  The movements are: Confidence, Dementia/The Humbling, The Spiral/Reduction, Farewell, The Journey, Stress/Chaos, Finding Humor in Pain, and Clarity.

On the last sequence. Clarity, I had the opportunity to record the duet with megiapa, a Chicago-based Ohio born artist who is truly talented vocally and on production as well.  Look out for her! I’d like to also credit John Robinson (aka lil sci) for the lyric that provided the title and concept for this release. the lyric “Constant Elevation through the soundwaves and radio stations” is from “U.S.A” by Scienz of Life.

Review: Radius – Time Travel is Real (A Prelude to Japan…)

Words By:  Mike Stylesa3632691143_10

Chicago is quickly becoming a big part of our network base.  Shout out to our cosmic-brothers Radius and Sev Seveer for getting our name out in their community after their feature on Beats of All-Nations Radio Episode 003 released earlier this year.  Since making contact with these guys it has been great to witness and take part in their journey.  While we put the finishing touches on our first official album release Constant Elevation:  Odessa Star by Sev Seveer, we wanted to share the latest from Radius, Time Travel is Real (A Prelude to Japan…), on his own label ETC Records.

Time Travel is Real is an album Radius created an album to build the anticipation of his upcoming expedition to Japan, where he will share his talents on an international level.  Always on the move, he created this project on the road, which he often calls “home,” from Chicago, to St. Louis and Honolulu.  Here you get seven songs for seven bucks, each one reflecting a different style that yet ties together seamlessly with the last.  Hooked from the jump on “Time Traveling 101 (Oahu to Osaka)” to “All Respects to Sonotheque” there is a real message in the music that may elicit a higher level of consciousness.  “One for Ferguson (Healing Factor)” strikes a cord with the current situation with Police and People relations and “Melanin Starburst” was recently featured on LeFtO’s Radio Show with much praise.  My personal favorite right now is “Aquatic Sunset Sirens”.  Though we’ve got the whole album on repeat at HQ right now and we know that you will too.  That being said we want to send Radius off with warm wishes in his journey traveling with his Beats of All-Nations.

“I hope that it serves as an inspiration to all those that listen. Supreme full circle energy reflection is the key. Stay strong & keep creating and pushing YOUR dreams to REALITY. Thanks for your support. Much respect. Enjoy and see you soon. ” – Radius

Flyway at Fox presents Poolside (DJ Set) with SNBRN, Mike Styles & Gabe Real



Poolside began in early 2011 as the recording project of Los Angeles musicians Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise. Nikolic was a Danish-born producer and DJ who spent some time as the bass player in Junior Senior before relocating to LA and Paradise lived in San Francisco playing out as a DJ and as the frontman of hardcore band the Calculators before also moving to LA. Duo members Nikolic and Paradise began honing their collaborative creations in a pool house that they converted into a makeshift recording studio, producing sunny tracks of subaquatic indie dance music. The group surfaced first in the form of a YouTube video for the catchy track “Do You Believe?” Poolside were soon gaining local and national attention, with underground DJs spinning their tracks at events and a growing online following. Throughout 2011 they made waves with the sound they were calling “daytime disco” through tracks like a reworking of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” as well as original tunes. In 2012 Poolside worked on a remix for longtime disco punks the Rapture and held fans over with a new single and video for a song called “Slow Down” as they prepared to release their debut album. That album, Pacific Standard Time, was released in July of 2012 on their own Day & Night label.

Sev Seveer “Constant Elevation: Odessa Star” [PREVIEW]

Words By: Mike Styles
photo 1-2


We are excited to announce that we will have the upcoming exclusive on Chicago producer Sev Seveer‘s first official release since 2008.  Constant Elevation:  Odessa Star, is a 30-minute soundscape in the form of a sound design driven beat tape for the scrambled brain. The release is best described as an audio narrative of 91 year old woman floating through space….Say what?!?  It is a composition inspired by Seveer’s Grandmother who dealt with dementia in her later years.  Sev connects on the deep frequency of a mind blown channeled through through his SP-404 on this forward thinking journey.  Scheduled for a pending release within a week, we wanted to jump the gun and share this this little teaser with you…
