Carlos Gabriel Niño (born 16 February 1977) is an internationally celebrated producer, arranger, composer, musician, radio host, DJ, music consultant, writer, poet, and event organizer, based in his hometown of Los Angeles, California.[1][2] He has been an important force in the contemporary independent music scene since 1995. A prolific artist, Niño has been involved in the production of more than 100 records and has toured with various bands and as a DJ throughout Europe, Japan and the United States.


Niño started his first radio show All At One Point at KPFK 90.7 FM, Los Angeles in October 1995 and since has had several time slots on the station. All At One Point was focused on "Hip-Hop, Soul, Jazz, and World Rhythms." While hosting the show on Wednesdays from 8:00pm – 10:00pm PST, Niño showcased his favorite contemporary artists and featured live in studio performances and interviews with a wide variety of legends, up and coming artists and bands, as well as DJs. DJ Organic, Hymnl and Jon Liu all co-hosted the show with him at different times. In 1999, after a 6-month hiatus, (following the birth of his son Azul,) he returned to KPFK with a new sound and vision: Spaceways Radio. Airing on Sundays from 1999–2003, then for 6 years on Friday nights, Niño currently programs Spaceways Radio on its original day and time Sundays, 10:00pm - Midnight.
