This time on 14tracks:

“14 tracks: Memory Wholesale”

Nostalgia for the mid-late '80s is endemic at the moment. Contemporary culture appears to be trapped in an ever-decreasing feedback loop on the cusp of the analogue-to-digital crossover, inspiring a mesh of mixed musical messages and emotions. The underground is knowingly afflicted with a flux of analog bubblegum and cynical digital futurism, which is where we find these 14 tracks, tracing that metallic grey and LCD-green period where the visionary pop and dance productions of Trevor Horn, Prince, Arthur Baker and Juan Atkins melt into the imagery of John Hughes and Paul Verhoeven movies like false memories of futures past, implanted Total Recall styles. This manifests itself in the heady H-Pop of Rangers and Matrix Metals, the impressionistic Chillwave of Summer Camp, the tacky gloss of VHS Head's incidental edits and most acutely in Autre Ne Veut's breathtakingly unsettling R'n'B emotions. Feel free to create your own escapist montage to this selection, or maybe even write your own storyline and send it us. We'll contact you, yeah?

Take part! Leave a comment!

What do you think of this selection?
Any suggestions?
All comments are warmly welcomed.

“flac”

Very nice selection as usual.
Still, I wish I had the flac option on this site.
I know that all these tracks are available in flac on boomkat, but boomkat only lets you buy entire albums in flac, instead of just the tracks you like.

“dates”

Loving the site, but why no dates in description of production!!! Would be nice to see how things have evolved.

“Playback”

I'd love to enjoy the latest selection but to my dismay I can't seem to get any of the tracks to playback the samples...??

“Player user-fiendly”

Love also your site with nice selections yes , could be possible to add a player friendly to enter the all play lists themes while surfing the site without linking as another page.
Keep up the good work;)

Maybe a 14tracks before 2000...

“Excellent”

Easily my favorite 14 tracks. I'm shocked that the description avoided the dreaded word "chillwave". Many thanks

“Music not misery”

Love this selection - already brought Autre Ne Veut and VHS Head because of this!

... but why does almost every comment have to be about suggestions to improve the site, previews, formats etc etc.

The site works just fine, the selections are interesting every week - you can tell within 10 seconds if you are going to download!. If you think you can do a better job I would love to visit your new site!
