Before Robbie and Chris started making their WE FORFEIT mixes the original idea had been a wee sort of radio show. Bitta chat. Bitta discussion. Bitta misty eyed reminiscing about the past and how things were in our day. Now that original idea is coming to fruition.
Once a month WE FORFEIT will have a two hour show on Madrid’s Radio Relativa, an independent digital radio station based in the Spanish capital. The lads will finally get to have that bitta chat and whatnot alongside music from all areas of electronic music.
For the first show the lads go through their record collections, picking out teenage favourites, pensive tech-poetry and modern day melters. The result? A rich soup of electro, italo, house, lotsa IDM, wave and techno bruisers garnished with pearls of wisdom, mispronounced words and difficult to make out accents. A meaty platter of dusty vinyl, gleaming wax and obscurities drizzled with anecdotes, reflections and tangential memories. A meringue filled with music, good humour, love, tears, bribes, cat hair and Aphex Twin.
Thanks to Radio Relativa for the opportunity and young Huw Stephens for his incisive and insightful question for Chris. Gracias a todos!
