On episode nine of Beats of All-Nations Radio we are excited to bring to you a brand new mix from Los Angeles producer Co.fee. He’s been producing beats since 2005 and in 2011 he released his first EP on My Hollow Drum, titled Easy Listening, followed by the Bermuda EP released in 2012. Co.fee brings a uniquely refreshing feel to the show with this drum heavy eccentric mix of music from the international community.
“This mix is basically a playlist of my favorite songs and artists that I am feeling at the moment. I tried to keep it as diverse as possible.” -Co.fee
Alas! There has been much anticipation for this episode since our maiden voyage of Beats of All-Nations Radio: Episode 001 featuring Cell Uno. Thanks to everyone who showed us some love…This one took a little time to organize and arrange but we do have something real special for you.
Episode 002 features the brilliant production from the Inland Empire’s very own Bombay. This guys isn’t your average producer, Bombay has been building heavy steam over the years. His production credits include Aloe Blacc, Blu, Alchemist, The KO Corporation, and Home Grown Organix. 2013 was a busy year for Bombay, he managed to tour with Blu, and Tiron & Ayomari, DJ’ed for Elzhi at Paid Dues, and released his critically acclaimed Last 3 Days album, and 2014 looks even more promising. It’s no wonder he’s been referred over and over as the ‘IE’s best kept secret,’ from those in the know.
In this episode Bombay’s beats, mostly unreleased instrumentals and exclusives, are mixed by Beats of All-Nations very own Porchlite. Who is no stranger to the game either, Porchlite is one of our in-house producer/DJs dabbling in a range of sounds from electronic, house to downtempo and hip hop. In the past he has toured the nation with the likes of The Roots, NERD, Talib Kweli, Mayer Hawthorne and Skillz. His production and performance schedule is a busy one in 2014 so we’re sure you’ll be seeing and hearing him all over the place.
Bombay and Porchlite’s collaboration on this mix is something special as the two are well acquainted with each others styles and you probably won’t hear their music as well represented as in this mix. Without further ado here is Beats of All-Nations Radio Episode 002 featuring Bombay & Porchlite. Enjoy!
Of course we sat down with the two to discuss influences, the mix, and favorite food spots. Interview and exclusive 3-track download from Bombay after the jump.
