Carlos Niño & Friends - Flutes, Echoes, It's All Happening! (LP)

Ships In 7-9 Business Days

Carlos Niño is a Los Angeles-based producer, composer, ensemble orchestrator, Dublab Labrat, and mentor. He is also DJ of the influential KPFK radio show, Spaceways Radio, a program dating back to 1995 that has hosted guests like A Tribe Called Quest, J. Dilla, Gil Scott-Heron, Afrika Bambaataa, and many others.

On April 22, Carlos Niño will be sharing the 4th installment of his Carlos Niño & Friends series, entitled Flutes, Echoes, It's All Happening!, on LEAVING Records.

Flutes was recorded in California, mostly in the greater Los Angeles area, and demonstrates Niño's signature style of Space Collage Hybrid music. A spiritual, free-form, progressive full-length that touches on jazz, New Age, psychedelic and ambient musics, Flutes sees contributions from artists like Madlib, Kamasi Washington, and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, the latter of whom has recorded & composed for acts like Rihanna, Lana Del Rey, Father John Misty, Flying Lotus, and others.

The music on Flutes spans a few years, leading up to March 2015. Of this, Niño remarks, "I rarely throw anything away, and in this case, a few pieces I'd started and archived were brought back to the forefront as they vibrationally matched with the project. There is overlap in space, time and sound with these records."
