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.
On this monumental 25th episode we welcome a real legend, Danny Holloway. He blesses the decks with his trade mark 45 slingin’ we talk about his time in the industry, his work as a music journalist at the NME newspaper, which led to him accompaning the Rolling Stones to Jamaica. He then joined Island Records’ London, being mentored by label owner Chris Blackwell. We discuss his contributions to 3 Bob Marley albums, plus work with Jimmy Cliff, The Meters, The Maytals, The Heptones and others. Holloway currently co-owns the popular reissue 45s label, Ximeno Records which is working to soon launch an exclusive record club!
Inka One is another LA heavy hitter, representing Boombox LA. He blesses us with a uniquely fresh Dilla Tribute as his crew prepares their annual Doin’ It for Dilla party this Saturday Night at Grandstar Jazz Club. Mike Styles opens the show with an all Brazilian vinyl set in light of the upcoming Carnaval season and Gabe Real wraps the show with all Reggae 45s.

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.

Upon return from a recent trip to the deepest of crates in Colombia, Cut Chemist and Beats of All-Nations sought out to remix a unique set of dusty records, each different from the last, with an equally diverse list of producers. Going Back to Cali: Cut Chemist’s Colombian Crates Remixed is MORE THAN CUMBIA, its a reflection on a tropical culture rich in spirit, creativity and passion strung together with field recordings found along the way. These records were bought in Cali, Colombia during Patronio Alvarez Festival last year, hence the name.
Our trip begins with folklore Colombiano favorites Los Corraleros de Majagual over a crunchy boom-bap by Co. Fee from Los Angeles’ beat collective, My Hollow Drum. Dance Kill Move (Stockholm, Sweden) adds some serious low end to Los Jovenes de Hierro’s classic charanga, “Ritmo Sabroso.” Ubiquity recording artist, currently residing in Colobmia, Bosq and Yukicito of La Junta (Los Angeles) contribute absolute party starters, while El Dusty’s “Mi Chola” give Los Teen Agers a taste Corpus Christi, TX. Atropolis (Queens) pays homage with a heavy stripped down edit of Julio y su Combo’s “Lamento Cumbiambero” and Los Chicos Altos (Barcelona) add in some rub-a-dub flavor on Los Hermanos Tuiran’s “Lluvia.” In addition we explore national treasures and the lesser known, new styles of chirimía, porro, pachanga, salsa and cumbia as interpreted by Sumohair (Los Angeles), Gabe Real (Pomona, CA) and Greece duo SUPERSAN (aka Panama Cardoon & Mister Kentro).
