Iñigo Ugarteburu – Gospel mix-tape on the way for the TSSP…

29 Nov

Please allow me to introduce you to Iñigo Ugarteburu…

After working for 8 months at EMI, I have only just started to really get to know people I work with well enough to discover their passions and talents… Iñigo Ugarteburu it would seem, is quite the prolific musician, working on various projects whilst regularly gigging and DJing, he also has an incredibly extensive and photographic knowledge of music with a large and eclectic record collection to match.

I’m sure there is more to Iñigo that we are yet to discover, but so far this is what I know of him to share… Cafe Teatro is a dreamy and enchanting minimalist folk collective to which he belongs, having release two albums called ‘Burga’ and ‘Sei’ through Foehn Records, which you can hear and buy here.

Iñigo also released a solo album this year called ‘Back & Forth’, it is simply sublime and commands to be listened to, Once your ears are wrapped around the many layers of the vast number of instrumental melodic patterns, it carries you on a journey to another land entirely. Best listened to with closed eyes in any state of mind!


Not one to rest on his laurels, He is currently working on solo album number two and a score for a dance film directed by Xabier Iriondo and choreographed by Marina Mascarell. Iñigo has also recently put together a mix tape for his good friends at Colectivo Futuro, a dedicated cultural node where artforms and people converge, a node well worth checking out. I enjoyed the Mix-tape so much and I’m delighted to say that even with his incredibly busy schedule he has agreed to share a glimps of his record collection with us and do a series of mix-tapes for The Secret Showcase Presents… Starting with Gospel. Watch this space…

You can hear the most recent African inspired mix-tape he did for Colectivo Futuro here…
