Beta Bodega (1999-2005) was an experimental electronic record label with a leftist political stance, based in Miami, Florida, USA. Founded in 1999 by designer and music enthusiast La Mano Fria to inform and address current matters in Latin America while bringing about awareness through design and music. The original label spawned through the time into three separate labels; Beta Bodega, Rice And Beans and Botanica Del Jibaro, giving birth to Beta Bodega Coalition (BBC). Beta Bodega was deactivated in 2005, together with Rice And Beans (which became t-shirt line again in 2006) and its special series label Rise And Defeat. Nowadays, Beta Bodega Coalition operates two labels; Botanica Del Jibaro and Arepaz, alongside with special project Bandeja Paisa and BBC chapters in Europe and Japan; Project: Mooncircle and RL66.
