Future Nostalgia’s dream scene is a world where music listening happens, art is celebrated and knowledge is shared. Using vinyl/records, they shape-shift DJ mixes into podcasts, that explore our heritage. Through this process, new ways of listening are explored. They also work in the realm of creating and exhibiting artworks and forms of writing and arts journalism. Through sound they explore untold stories. You are invited to join their community gathering virtually on selections and topics including Black Music in South Africa and Decolonisation, Islam and North African music, Futurism, Beats and Global Sound systems. Through regular events over the past seven years in Cape Town, they have aimed to create safe spaces not only for black artists but for black audiences as well. They operate on the tagline ‘For Selectors, Collectors, Deejays and Diggers’ celebrating the universal love for music and creating spaces to gather in the spirit of community. Their illustrations, paintings and designs echo album covers and posters throughout history, especially those in response to social issues and the work pays homage to musical figures, activists and artists through the ages. All artwork and illustrations for the collective is done by artist Grant Jurius.
