In addition, Redefine Magazine asked us to put together this mix of sounds that we feel embody the spirit of DEEP LISTENING, a tradition that has its West-Coast routes in the mind of Minimalist pioneer Pauline Oliveros, and the DEEP LISTENING INSTITUTE. Much Respect to the heroes of the past, and to the progression of a deeper palette into the future.

“Deep Listening® is a philosophy and practice developed by Pauline Oliveros that distinguishes the difference between the involuntary nature of hearing and the voluntary selective nature of listening. The result of the practice cultivates appreciation of sounds on a heightened level, expanding the potential for connection and interaction with one’s environment, technology and performance with others in music and related arts.” – Pauline Oliveros – Deep Listening Institute

Boomarm Nation has been long time fans of the work Maga Bo is doing, and it will be an honour and a privilege to share a sound system with him. Not to mention my main man E3 warming things up!! PDX, come out and show your love for trans-national Sound System music.
In the mean time make sure you are all caught up on Maga Bo’s latest opus Quilombo Do Futuro.
I made this mix after an exhausting day of combing soundcloud for some new music to both Dj, and get excited about.. But all I could seem to find was Trap, Trap and yup more Trap remixes… WTF culture?
I had to remind myself that before all of this saturation fatigue, I used to love M U S I C… you know the kind made by groups of people who wanted to share in a spontaneous sonic moment. Well.. it still exists, and I made this mix to remind myself that. Whilst digging in, i had some fun chopping a few wave forms, re-arranging them, and getting noisy on some filters and Delay… And some how Drake ended up in here too.. LOL
