Mike Styles brings the Carnaval after party with some nice Brasilian tunes and then Cut Chemist and co. talk with one of our favorite sample based producers and artist, Mumbles (Book Of Human Language by Aceyalone) and his beginnings, current and future projects.
Getting 2018 off to a great start at A Stable Sound. Cut Chemist and legendary Hip Hop photographer/director/cultural enthusiast, B+ get way deep in LA music history and his explorations of music around the world. Much of which is captured in his recent photo book, GHOST NOTES: Music of the Unplayed. Recorded Live at Dublab.
Making good on our promise, Gabe Real, Mike Styles, Subira and JB, better known as the Re:Fresh Pomona Crew comes together for a very special edition of Beats of All-Nations Radio in light of New Years Eve 2018. We discuss the hits and misses of 2017, predictions for the next year, a bit of our history in the community but most importantly we offer you something to move to. Enjoy this 2 hour party for the world. Happy New Year! Cover Art: Blind Herd

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.

Cut Chemist takes us back to school with an all 45’s megamix tribute to the Deep Funk era made famous by legendary DJs and collectors such as Keb Darge, Ian Wright, and Dj Shadow. Take a trip back to a time when record stores still lined the streets and funk records could still be found in them. All OG, well except for Soul Drifters…
