FRESH OF THE MIXING DESK! THE BOOMARM FAMILY MEGA MIX IS HERE!
“Boomarmin” – BOOMARM SUPER MIX-vol1 by BoomArmNation
WHAT IS IT??— For the jump off celebration of this exploration in blogging as a form of sonic community building. We looked to a local crew of PDX sonic pushers. dropped a folder of cumbia and dancehall flavored loops into there inboxes. And challenged them to make a 40-60 second mix/version inspired or drawn from the loops. The 15 mixes received were spun by myself (JMJ Gigante / Gulls) into a tropical flavored PDX mix. Its a 12 and a half minute ride of serious grooves , bass drops, glitch, and heavy sonic spaces… Mad thanks and props to the participant PDX boomarm family!
THE LOOPS– To give you some context.. here are the loops that each artist recieved as a base for there constructions.
The frist is a loop taken from the song “La Samaria” by Colombia’s Orquestra Nunez- From the fantastic SoundWays compilation
“COLOMBIA! THE GOLDEN AGE OF DISCO FUENTES“.
