Miami Underground Movement proudly presents... "Alvaro Garfunk Making Moves @ M.U.M" - M.U.M Episode 13
Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the "Miami Underground Movement."
At an early age in life, music and broadcast took much interest in the mind of Alvaro Garcia. By 1995, the urge to play vinyl combined with a used pair of Technics 1200's took Alvaro by storm. After spinning at many parties and gatherings, he made his way on a local pirate radio station. With this experience he later ventured on to a full studio production at Florida International University. He then attained his own radio show called "The Friday Pulse" which took listeners on a 2 hour journey each week, successfully spanning 4 years. This is where the progressive techno style of “Garfunk? came about. From then on he stretched beyond the airwaves into podcasts, internet streams, and playing live at venues in Miami, Orlando, and Rio de Janeiro.
Alvaro graduated F.I.U. with a B.B.A. only to rediscover his passion for music. To follow his calling, he attended SAE, the School for Audio Engineering. Graduating from SAE Miami proved to be a very challenging and rewarding experience. Recording, producing, and mixing are skills which came into full swing on current projects. Alvaro co-founded KG Miami Recordings with Eric Kraffman and they also published a weekly iTunes podcast which has attained global exposure and recognition. With guests like Timo Maas, Chaim, Phonique, Spirit Catcher and more, the KG Miami Podcast was named “New and Notable? and “Featured Podcast? in the iTunes Germany music store. KG Miami Recordings has been spreading its niche sound and has released tracks on digital distribution sites worldwide.
