This week on Transmissions, a heady conversation with Carlos Niño about spontaneous composition, the influence of hip-hop culture, his radio roots, and his latest, More Energy Fields, Current. “…Frequently, I would say I’m doing some version of supercomputing, where I’m completely free in the moment and I’m also bookmarking sections I know I want to get back to.” From his days at dublab to his partnerships with artists like Laraaji and Iasos and much more, we’re glad to have Niño on.Transmissions :: Carlos Niño
