There is no way I could summarize the work of Carlos Niño
in just one paragraph. The Los Angeles based producer, arranger, composer and musician is involved in Build An Ark
, Ninja Tune
, The Life Force
, What’s The Science?
or Hu Vibrational
. His latest EP on Stones Throw
payed tribute to J Dilla
by interpreting his music with a full orchestra and was later performed live. Some call him a driving force of the L.A. music scene. With his wide repertoire he is surely one of the most gifted producers.
His latest work is titled "With A Little Help From" and is put out under the name Carlos Niño & Friends
. What started as a record session with fellow Build An Ark members, turned into a wonderful journey through analogue ambience and field recordings. Among the friends on the record are longtime collaborators Gaby Hernandez
, Dwight Trible
and Dexter Story
