Wasted Fates & Future Forward — Illuminations
Wasted Fates’, mexican producer Octavio Kh, arsenal is a hard hitting collection of latin american rhythms filtered through the global vanguard. Articulating and cross pollinating old dance genres into new territories, a sense of quietness sips on many of his musical productions, a breath of fresh air and deep thought before a barrage of well laden ryhthmic structures from the rest of the world arrive.
Wasted Fates has been exploring weirdest ends of the dance floor for nearly fifteen years. His most notorious work has been released through the Ecstasy and NAAFI labels, a collective where he is constantly active in various collaborations. His music emcompasses a tour de force based on some of the club rhythms that are dominating the global circuit; there is acid dembow, there is grime, there are bass and spikes of Latin sounds, all sifted by that dark force that has characterized the live sound of Wasted Fates in the last years. His most recent output, in his own Physis label, are a couple of New Age ambient EP’s that reflect a more meditative side of Wasted Fates, a mood that is in constant shift, focused and brilliant, serving as passing and fluctuating landscapes for the inner self or maybe as a collapsing soundtrack for the dramatical challenging times we are living through.
Future Forward is a visual project created in 2017 by Esteban García and José Ramon Sahagún. Using chaotic computer imagery, they expose the frenetic speed of image creation, using visual artforms that date back to the birth of web interfaces. Multiple digital aesthetics have been developed since this event. Through the study of underground internet cultures and new media, this project reflects the need to deeply understand and interpret the internet’s own visual history. Future Forward doesn't expect to be disruptive, on the contrary, it attempts to accelerate the digital image creation process even more towards an imminent breakthrough. FF has been featured in several platforms in Mexico including SonarMx, Bahidorá and most recently Boiler Room.
Originally from from the city of Monterrey, Wasted Fates is a Mexico City based electronic music producer and DJ who is member of the mexican label NAAFI, programmer of #CDMXTapes on NTS Radio and founder of Physis.
