This Saturday, for one night only! Re:Fresh x #SELECT at Green Room Pomona for a #Pomona Artwalk Afterparty Megamix!!
PS. We’ll be back at dba256 on 1/23.
Our friend Gingee just dropped her Tambol EP a project that intelligently brings together all the best elements of her many talents. Tambol is the Filipino word for “drum,” this EP fuses traditional live Filipino sounds and instruments like Kulintang (gongs), Tinikling (bamboo clappers) and other percussion instruments added to various styles of global bass in the form of zouk, moombahton, dancehall, and house. Gingee also includes various styles of hip hop with cuts, raps and poetry.

…and what’s a new release without a proper release party? We are super excited about this Saturday as Magic Garage’s Sound Paint returns to the Airliner in Los Angeles. The show is a promising line-up of bands, artists and some of our favorite DJs including Jimbo Jenkins, Yukicito, Mike Styles, and Gingee!
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.
