Bottega Veneta Just Launched a Radio Series with NTS
Bottega Veneta is collaborating with global radio platform NTS for a "new cultural partnership," starting with a monthly radio series. The series will explore the craft behind music featuring both emerging and established musicians.
As described on the NTS site, Bottega Radio is for "opening up new conversations between NTS residents and special guests through a series of collaboratively produced musical soundscapes."
Bottega Radio kicked off in April and will continue throughout 2022. The first episode of the series features autotune enthusiast Tim Zha AKA Organ Tapes working together with L.A’s Jazmin, an expert in Latin music and resident host for NTS show Como La Flor.
The series' launch party was held at Stone Nest in London's West End with performances from PLZ Make It Ruins boss and Frank Ocean collaborator Vegyn, experimental hip-hop auteur Slauson Malone, avant-R&B singer Liv.e, and conceptual artist Dean Blunt.
The series is a big move for Bottega Veneta as the brand has an elusive presence both physically and digitally. You can listen to the first episode of Bottega Radio, which aired on NTS 2, featuring Organ Tapes and Como La Flor right now.
