Featured Release: DJ EROK “Beautiful Chaos” EP [VOIDSHIFT]

Words By: Mike Styles

cover3

Earlier this month our pal DJ Erok released Beautiful Chaos, his first official EP on Voidshift.  A ‘critical beatdown,’ of a release if you would.  Beautiful Chaos has a cryptic sound so dark the passage to towards the light is unexpected and lives under layers of reverberating drums and bottommost bass.  With production features from wave Groove on the warped tempos of “Drop” to  the mantra trapped out “Poison” with Curtiss King, Beautiful Chaos will move your mind to through “a dark tunnel with a light at the unreachable end.”  Keep an eye out for an exclusive and limited USB release!

If you’re not familiar we encourage you to dig deeper and check out Erok’s long list of mixes, remixes and the other works via Soundcloud.

Beats of All-Nations Radio Episode 008: wave Groove

Words by: Mike Styles

“As I keep progressing further into sound I find myself diverging out of the normal and really searching within myself to hear what I like.”

Beats of All-Nations Radio Episode 008:
wave Groove (Los Angeles)

2014 was a big year for Los Angeles bassed producer wave Groove.  The Critical Beatdown member, joined up with Beat Cinema, and created his own ‘hub’ for music with DJ Erok called Voidshift Radio, names that all ring loud in Southern California.  He was put on heavy line ups and generated a nice buzz, stealing shine from headliners on every bill he played.  His new album DATA / FORMAT / BEAT / PROJECT was beautifully constructed and is available now (links below).  On this mix wave Groove plays a few of his new tunes side by side with some handpicked others.

In the interview below wave Groove tells us about his evolution from dj to production, his take on turntables and controllers, opening for SBTRKT and what to expect at Re:Fresh Valentine’s Day 2015:  wave Groove Album Release Party.

Beats of All-Nations Radio: Episode 004 Mixed by DJ Jimbo Jenkins

1

 

Our fourth installment of Beats Of All-Nations Radio features a brand new mix from the imaginative world of sound and bass by DJ Jimbo Jenkins!

Maybe you’ve never heard of him, though he has become an important part of the music scene puzzle in Southern California.  Born in L.A. and raised east of it, and Jimbo was brought up, like many of us on hip hop music and culture.  In college at UC Riverside,  Jimbo took involvement with Hip Hop Congress, focused on organizing on campus events.  He soon after began djing the house party and nightclub circuit in Riverside.  This would eventually lead into his post-grad time focused on throwing parties of his own in Pomona with some close friends, creating a base for DJs he respected in the local community.

Today Jimbo Jenkins continues to create with conceptual mixes, mash-up projects and beats.  His Trillest Mixtape Series, is a unique look into hip hop and R&B  from the common hits to the equally great gems by slept on artists hailing from east of L.A.  The kid continues to raise eyebrows within the industry, even Diplo posted a photo of Jimbo’s Travis Portishead mash-up project on Instagram.  There’s also a mixtape collaboration with Pheo (Mad Decent/Vested in Culture).  You can catch Jimbo in the mix live on 2nd & 4th Saturdays at his night called SELECT at Green Room at Fox Theater in Pomona with Arti (My Hollow Drum) and a monthly throwback party called Oh Snap! with Arti, Erok (More Fire/Critical Beatdown), Haruto (The Flyball), and Kab (MHD).

“I’ve found myself to have met and worked with many hardworking people on music, parties, and shows between L.A., O.C. and the I.E. and it makes me happy and proud to be from around these parts.”

-DJ JIMBO JENKINS
