Nike Sportswear x The FADER’s Pitch Perfect Mixtape #5: North America by Chief Boima

northamerica_main

As part one of Nike Sportswear and The FADER’s Pitch Perfect program, we will be posting six mixtapes featuring music from six continents (sorry, Antarctica). Each mixtape will include brand new artwork by Siggi Eggertsson, eventually available as limited edition screen-printed posters. Stay tuned for the final mixtape from Africa this Friday, and check out Asia, Australia, Europe and South America at Pitch Perfect.

Few continents are as fluid as North America. From the Panama Canal to the Bering Strait, its borders contain a representation of nearly every imaginable personal history, and its residents seem to share their cultures as freely as the jet stream. The music that comes out of this panoply blurs the lines even more, and few grasp this constant flow as well as California’s Chief Boima. As a DJ, producer and writer living in San Francisco, Boima champions the genre-defiant and sonically adventurous with a keen eye, limitless curiosity and sly wit. For this mixtape, even though a majority of the artists live or have lived in the US of A, he’s somehow able to represent as many countries as there are songs, each one bounding back and forth across countries as effortlessly as its creator.
