A Special Bob James birthday celebration that features some of my favorite uses of the classic song, “Nautilus”. See how the art of sampling has evolved through the use of one song. Enjoy! -Cut Chemist
From Hip Hop DX:
In celebration of jazz musician Bob James’ December 25th birthday, Cut Chemist of Jurassic 5 cooked up a special exclusive episode of A Stable Sound podcast. With tracks like “Beats To The Rhyme” by Run-DMC and “Daytona 500” by Ghostface Killah, the mix spans Hip Hop songs from 1981-2016, and all sample James’ 1974 single, “Nautilus.” Normally powered by Dublab, episodes of A Stable Sound podcast run the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month. Listen above.

This mix is a collection of old rap instrumentals that never quite made it out of the lab, made between 2007-2013. This stuff is mostly a reflection of my early forms (but those forms will always be present!), and to show that I’ve always, from the beginning, tried to keep a solid range of beat proficiency, “Styles Upon Styles” as we say. I’ve avoided trying to box myself, and made sure to maintain my scholarship as a student of beatmaking
Most of these beats were created in software via midi controllers and in-DAW audio chopping from when I first started working in Cubase in 2007; however, there are some very early SP 404/202 beats in here as well.
My next EP, Smithereens, is a journey in using beats to sonically interpret neo-impressionism, specifically Pointillism. The first single, “Seuratcha Sauce”, will be out via Beats of All-Nations in June.

“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
DJ Choco aka GDubs, a product of New York, residing in Los Angeles. He is a simple dude with a huge and complicated appetite for sound. From studying piano, clarinet and music composition in high school to mixing it up and down in the studio with the likes of Masta Ace INC, Guru (of Gangstarr), Dee Lite, Wu-Tang Clan and more. He is one half of the house duo 1200 Warriors. He’s executed the sound on several of our past episodes of Beats of All-Nations Radio, but now its his time to control the sound alas, Beats of All-Nations Radio Episode 11: DJ Choco // 12 Hunit Mix!!

2014 was a big year for the growth of Beats of All-Nations. Though every year we look back and think about what more we could have done, we did attain some personal and organizational goals that we are very proud of in ’14. On Beats of All-Nations Radio Episode 006, we compiled highlights from our podcasts this year, with guests Cell Uno, Bombay, Radius, Sev Seveer, DJ Jimbo Jenkins, Gingee. We also put together clips from our own radio appearances made on Culture Remixed, Soul Circle Radio, Vibes and Stuff featuring Porchlite, El Toro Negro, Gabe Real and Mike Styles with DJ Ethos. In addition we spotlight our first official release by Sev Seveer, Constant Elevation: Odessa Star, traveling through a couple of ‘movements’ from the album while Seveer discusses the project’s meaning with DJ Moppy on Future Music Radio (Q4, Chicago). Collectively we also had a great year hosting and taking part in some great events. We would like to thank everyone who supported on any level. We are looking forward to the year to come and hope to build on this community with more of you along the way!
