Every month we support & pay tribute to one fantastic label or collective. In October we unite with the exceptional music/art and internet culture platform Rare Nnudes.
Rare Nnude’s goal is to “explore/purvey the sense of mystery in the internet culture.” Since 2012/13 it’s four guiding hands : Bored Lord, p l a i n t e x t, minivan markus, & Bastiengoat have been creating a variety of fascinating mixed media artworks to explore, elevate and mock the symbiotic relationship of their art and the world of the web that reifies, mythologizes and consumes it.
As always we will furnish your ears with an incredible Label Of The Month mix curated by Bored Lord which will air for the first time on Sunday 9th October from 19:00 – 21:00 and take you on a chronological journey through some of the highlights of the Rare Nnude’s catalogue.
Until then we caught up with the multi-talented Bored Lord to find out more about the thinking behind the collective.
