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 presents Seasons Change

BEATSOAN copy

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 www.beatsofallnations.com.

TROPICALIA IN FURS, LOS ANGELES POP-UP

Words by:  Mike Styles 11402976_10153158198638515_5970895552181721580_n   Our pal and highly sought out Brazilian record collector and merchant from East Village NYC by way of Brazil is traveling with his amazing vinyl to Los Angeles!  Joel Stones is bringing the heat, spirit and legacy of his shop Tropicalia in Furs to Rappcats, pop-up location this weekend in Highland Park.

It’s been almost three years since Tropicalia In Furs has gone Underground to Otherworldly Constellations to dig for the known + Unknown Raw Beats.  Only you have the power to uncover the results of this Intergalactic Voyage.  The Vault will finally reopen on July 25 – 26 at RAPPCATS!!!

“I will bring tons of Brazilian records, 45s, LPs, some jazz, funk, soul, prog, psych, garage, boxes of 45s with good French, Turkish, African, Northern Soul, tons of crazy stuff.” – Joel Stones

With this road trip/record caravan of course comes a long-awaited mix of gems by the man himself, Abobora Mechanica, previewing some of the stuff that will be up for purchase at this very exclusive engagement.  We’ve been bumping this set all week, its a hour long and perfect for the season.  If you’re into collecting records from around the world, or new to the style you don’t want to miss this.  Take advantage, you won’t find original pressings and quantities from Brazil like this anywhere else in the city.  See you there!
