This week on the DHC, we have a special guest mix from Mike Styles of Beats of All Nations fame. The mix features a dreamy flow of future beats, inspired by left coast beat artists- Linafornia, Ras G, and Dibia$e. As always, Mike stays true to worldly form by digging into some Latin and Afro beats, highlighted by Buyepongo, Wganda Kenya, and Rim Kwaku Obeng. Best of all, this week we’re back with another record giveaway courtesy of Sev Seveer and the Beats of All Nations family. Please listen, share, and repeat! Thank you for your support!

How we’d love to be in the room for the one. The spirit of Beats of All-Nations surrounds our family in Chicago. This is a must for our people in the region! Fire line up on an all around dope concept. Radius, Sev Seveer and Makaya McCraven all have released some fresh selections on our latest release Seasons Change. Shout out Uncle El and the rest of this line up!
Live PA/electronic production based event originally created by Moment Sound(Garo, Lokua, Slava) in the early-mid 2000s. The events took place around Chicago at various venues, including(but not limited to); The Darkroom & Funky Buddha lounge. Many guests rocked alongside them over the years and credit the events as being potent for their overall growth.
ETC Records (Ear To Chicago) label head; Radius pays respects to one of the key rotating events essential to his artistry at Door No. 3 aka Double Door bassment. Continue reading →
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.

Its the final stretch. Help Radius & ETC Records make their first official full length vinyl release, Time Travel is Real (A Prelude to Japan…).
Chicago born producer Radius ETC, has been very active creating and performing his unique style of beats since 2001. He is the co-founder of two Chicago based groups; LAGOS (w/ Leo 123) and Beyond Luck (w/ Dj Moppy). Since 2008, Radius has pursued his craft and vision within various DIY communities in places like LA, Seattle, the Bay Area, NY, Hawaii, Japan and the of course the windy city.
Working independently most of Radius’ work has been limited to digital release and cd burns. Time Travel is Real (A Prelude to Japan…) had a now sold out, limited cassette release on I Had an Accident Records. A full-length vinyl release has always been a goal for Radius. Touring throughout the U.S. and recently abroad has shown that supporters share this exact sentiment.
The opportunity is now here, Time Travel Is Real (A Prelude to Japan…) on wax!
“I hope that it serves as an inspiration to all those that listen. Supreme full circle energy reflection is the key. Stay strong & keep creating and pushing YOUR dreams to REALITY. Thanks for your support. Much respect. Enjoy and see you soon.” -Radius
There are some nice perks attached to donations that will make this project a reality. The goal is now at arms reach, with over 90% of funding complete. With only a bit over a week left, we encourage you to get behind a talented artist who is putting every ounce of energy and efforts into his craft.
Time Travel is Real (A Prelude to Japan…) is inspired by and recorded in Chicago and Hawaii just prior to a visit to Japan on the music tip, last fall. The album was well received with recognition and airplay from the likes of Mathieu Schreyer (KCRW), LeFtO (Brownswood/Bluenote), Kev Beadle (Mind Fluid/London).
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!
