Dexter Story plays percussion and synth with Carlos Niño & Friends ensemble at Copenhagen’s Jazzhouse on Thursday, November 17. This concert is the 4th in a series of shows supporting Niño’s Leaving Records release ‘Flutes, Echoes, It’s All Happening!’
Flutes, Echoes, It’s All Happening!, out now on Leaving/Stones Throw Records, is the fourth in an ongoing series of highly collaborative records by Carlos & Friends, and features Iasos, Madlib, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Kamasi Washington, Luis Pérez Ixoneztli, Dexter Story, and more. FEIAH was recorded in California – mostly in the greater Los Angeles area, with Iasos’ contributions coming from up North in Marin County. The material spans a number of years, through to March 2015.
The live incarnation, available for selective shows worldwide throughout 2016, finds Carlos and his band of top-deck players tweaking and stretching the album compositions into fresh and glorious shapes, bursting with percussive colour and adaptable to high-grade theatre/jazz club environments as much as sweaty below-stairs beat sessions like LA’s seminal Low End Theory.

Dexter Story plays percussion on Miguel Atwood-Ferguson’s “Suite for Ma Dukes” special reprise performance at the Barbican in London, England on Wednesday, November 16. Story will also perform with Carlos Niño & Friends opening set.
In the 10th anniversary year of his untimely death, the music of American producer, DJ and Rapper J Dilla is reinvented as a radical take on contemporary chamber music by LA composer Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and producer Carlos Niño, backed by a 17-piece ensemble.
Cited as an influence on everyone from Mos Def to Flying Lotus, J Dilla’s compositions were years ahead of their time, bursting with unusual samples lifted from their original context and used to create entirely new music, with tricky rhythms and complex time signatures. Starting out as a studio project between Atwood-Ferguson and Niño, Suite for Ma Dukes rearranges Dilla’s music for live instruments, highlighting the breadth and depth of his compositions and showing just how versatile and intricate his music is even when translated into a wholly different musical language.
The perfect artist to tackle re-arranging J Dilla’s sprawling compositions, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson’s own CV covers an immense amount of musical experience – having worked with everyone from Outkast, Flying Lotus and Gilles Peterson to Sly Stone and Ray Charles, Wayne Shorter and Mulatu Astatke. Carlos Niño’s list of past collaborators covers similar ground – from A Tribe Called Quest to Afrika Bambaata, Gil Scott-Heron to Yusef Lateef.
Carlos Niño and his touring band will open the show, performing his swirling, mesmerising music which blurs the boundaries between classical and electronic worlds.
This eagerly-anticipated performance will be hosted by Gilles Peterson and Worldwide FM, Gilles’s new radio platform for the shape-shifting diversity of global music.
