This time on 14tracks:

“14 tracks: Architectronics”

This selection documents bold, emergent worlds colliding between the dancefloor and virtual dimensions. Breaking down and refracting the structures of grime, hip hop and techno in computerised prisms, they form a compatible nexus of future-shocking styles best described in terms of dynamic geometry, sheer textured gradients, simulated space and ambience. Modelling polymetric rhythms and intricately impossible sonic environments, they're all acutely reflective of how the internet has re-calibrated our perception of time and space, opening portals to a possible future where we simply jack in to the matrix and absorb it all at once in a synaesthetic orgy. From the blinding white-flash dynamics of M.E.S.H. to the radiant 'Indian Architecture' of Karmelloz and Visionist's breathtaking 'First Love' projection, this accelerated new skool short-circuits the connection between '60s & '70s electro-acoustic, new age computer music and up-to-the-second urban productions through deceptively effortless, scintillating new structures.

“mobile”

Thanks for another great selection.

Will you guys ever make a decent mobile version of your website? Speaking for myself, I'd be far more likely to purchase if I could at least listen on the go.

Thanks
