Los Angeles-bred Carlos Niño is the exalted producer, composer, percussionist, DJ, ensemble orchestrator and mentor who has traversed the multitude of music scenes the city has birthed within the last two decades. Host of the influential Spaceways Radio (1995-2015) on KPFK LA, co-founder of key web radio portal Dublab, co-producer of an epic chamber music tribute to Jay Dilla as well as instigator of some seminal live happenings including the last ever Brainfreeze show (the classic live turntable collaboration between DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist), Carlos’s curational activities run in complete parallel to his original compositions and collaborations. “This is Space Collage Hybrid music!”
Following 2016’s Flute, Echoes, It’s All Happening album, new record Going Home is the 5th in Carlos Niño’s & Friends series and will be released on Leaving Records in October 2017. The LP is a definitive six -song odyssey in tribute to “passing from the earthly realm” and features the Musical Energy of Deantoni Parks, Dexter Story, Jamael Dean, Josh Johnson, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, SK Kakraba, and New Age Legend Iasos.
