BIG ROUND THINGS PT.2

BIG ROUND THINGS ON THE WALLS?!?

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009



Ok so we get customers coming into the store asking what those big round things on the wall are? Hey get your mind out of the gutter! They are talking about the vinyl records. Yes they ask and we are happy to answer. There aren’t many stores carrying 12” vinyl anymore, so we understand why the question is asked. So when this question is asked I always want to show them this video. Discovery channel did a special once on how those big round things on the wall are made. Here is part one of two on how vinyl records are made. Remember Radio Futura still has an extensive collection in 12″ vinyl in genres like jungle, house, electro, hip hop, trance and more. Enjoy!

LOOK DAGGERS IN-STORE 2008

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009



One of the first In-store performances in 2008 at Radio Futura/GCS Alhambra store. 2Mex(Visionaries) and Ikey Owens(Mars Volta) performed live as the Look Daggers. It’s an amazing mesh of rock, punk and hip hop all in one. Ikey Owens provides the keys and sounds as 2Mex fills the room(or patio) with his mind bending lyrics. It was a great performance by the duo as they graced our patio with a few tunes. You can still pick up copies of the Look Daggers CD at Radio Futura or click here to buy online. We recently re-stocked on 2Mex albums before he went off on his tour through Europe. Good luck out there 2Mex!!

RADIO FUTURA COMMERCIAL

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009



This is a Radio Futura commercial that didn’t quite make it to the big screen, but made it to our favorite store commercials. This is when we were running television commercials on cable. This is a Killer Green (H1) production that captures the essence of what the store is about. It has the elements of the hip hop, underground subculture in snippets of classic films and live footage. The concept is great and I still like to post it from time to time on different sites for people who have never seen it. You’ll also see a recent edit adding the Alhambra location to the end of the video. Enjoy!
