Beats of All-Nations 030: Psychedelic Stax

On our “dirty” thirty episode we flip over some dusty crates and enjoy some psychedelic snax with the ‘Lord’s Player’ Hymnal & Mixmaster Wolf of Psychedelic Stax on an all vinyl episode of Beats of All-Nations Radio.

Hymnal is an unsung hero in Los Angeles Hip Hop, having ‘been there’ when everything important was ever going on in the LA Underground, he is known for his contributions as feature emcee on Cut Chemist’s solo records, his history with the group Dark Leaf and his involvement as a member of Psychedelic Stax radio program on Dublab. Mixmaster Wolf is another member Psychedelic Stax & Dark Leaf, front man for LA funk legends, BREAKESTRA, and rotates records on the reg at FUNKY SOLE.

Mike Styles kicks off the show with a mix of trippy jazz and soul from around the globe and we close with artist/designer Falcn 23, making his BOAN Radio debut playing further selections into the mellow psych realm.

New Video/Single: Cut Chemist “Work My Mind” feat. Chali 2na & Hymnal

Just in time for Halloween/Dia de los Muertos, Cut Chemist drops a new single inspired by his latest release.  “Work My Mind” features Chali 2na & Hymnal, directed by Delaney Bishop.  Bishop directed Jurassic 5‘s “Concrete Schoolyard” video in 1998.  The concept was derived from a short video he directed for Cut Chemist’s “Rare Equations” mixtape snippet ith Chali 2na also released in ’98

Enjoy this Day of the Dead festive work as they add Hymnal (“What’s the Altitutde”) to the concept while the adventure takes him through a graveyard.

“Work My Mind” is the first single from the Cut Chemist’s new EP.  The song samples “Alternative Fresh” by Vox Populi! featured on Cut Chemist Presents FUNK OFF: Vox Populi! and Pacific231.

“It’s a slightly new territory for me as it suggests the Golden Hip House Era of the late 80’s.” Cut adds, “A dance track for sure and Chali kills it being exposed to the Chicago House scene back in the day. He seen where I was headed, and nailed it!”

The EP will feature more collaborations with Edan, Mr. Lif, DNTL, Mumbles (Aceyalone’s “Book of Human Language” producer) and Gone Beyond.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
