2011 was a good year for colectivo futuro, we grew in followers and also in enthusiasm for what we are trying to achieve with this community of likeminded characters. we compiled some great futurecasts and we featured some of our favorite artists via our colectivo futurist section. but most importantly we achieved our first physical collaboration with mexican artist natural values and barcelona based bcomesome1 titled future print series 01.
to end the year on a high note, a couple of weeks back we were invited as guests on wvum’s dead air show. hosted by our homegirl Uchi Isabella, the show focuses on providing forward thinking electronic musics every friday night between 11 pm and 01 am. on friday, december 30th we arrived to the station, which is located at the beautiful university of miami campus, music and gear in tow, and were greeted by Uchi, who immediately made us feel at home in the studio, which was outfitted wall-to-wall with cds and records.
music wise, we wanted to take a “best of the year” approach to the show and during the first hour we did just that, showcasing an eclectic selection of tracks that inspired us during 2011, including cuts by Jamie XX, Four Tet, and Sbtrkt. we also talked about the state of colectivo futuro and our plans moving forward. for the second and third hours we kicked the bass musics up a notch mixing tracks by Jon Convex, Zomby, Jacques Greene, and Joy Orbison to name a few. needless to say we had an absolute blast!
listen to the 3 hour show with harold (@harold_f), gabe (@gabrielberthin), miguel (@miguelcolectivo), mike (@mlason), and of course our favorite host uchi (@uchpuch) with a cameo appearance by the ramon (@theramon) below
