Beats of All-Nations Radio 031: Arts + Drafts with Adrian Plus

Episode 031 features Adrian Plus joins us with a seamless steamy mix that ranges from sweet summer soul to modern electronic boogie with a solid dose of hip hop and everything that influences him in between.

We open the show with another highly requested, feel good reggae 45 set by DJ Gabe Real, playing the not so obvious or easy to find chunes. We take a trip down memory lane and he discusses his work as an engineer on Afta-1’s “FORM” LP as one of the first projects that came out of Music Culture Freedom Studio as it plays behind the discussion. Subira wraps the show with an eclectic mix of hip hop and Mike Styles hangs out for the conversation.

Catch Adrian Plus every Second Saturday at Homage Brewing for “Arts and Drafts” at the Pomona Artwalk.

Rock Steady Queen Aretha.

Beats of All-Nations Radio 029

Residents breathe life into the podcast after a short hiatus, for the first session of Summer Eighteen. On episode 29 we get into some G.O.O.D. summer joints and source records with Mike Styles followed by a Caribbean vacation set from Subira. We had some discussions, about “what’s going on, what could be done and what should be done.” Then we all get schooled by the professor, Gabe Real with a jukebox of genres that somehow always make sense. We’re back for Summer. Love is Love, Stay cool y’all.

COVER ART:  Linus at Ninetofive Records

Producer Max I Million (https://soundcloud.com/max-i-million) has put together an amazing conceptual mix transmitting live and worldwide from Stockholm, Sweden to Pomona, CA. He’s done official remix work for the likes of CL Smooth, Edo G, Planet Asia, Kev Brown, and Masta Ace. “I also worked with Promoe from Looptroop Rockers and ADL, who are about as close you can get to Swedish Hip Hop legends.” Max’s last release was on an instrumental cassette called Beats, Mines & Life, where he shares space with Ayatollah, Khrysis, M-Phazes and Nottz. Look out for his latest drop with Chuck D, Bishop Lamont and Mykill Miers on Counterweight Records. His right hand man Chapee intros the mix on a track the two previously collaborated on. “He’s a real master of ceremony, and I’m usually that cat in the background who speak with my music.”

Mike Styles opens the show with a short mix featuring new music from Makaya McCraven, Co. Fee, Sumohair and SUPERSAN. Gabe Real seals the deal with a dj buffet and a blast from the past when he reunites with a scratch record he pressed and released in the early 2000s.

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
