“14 tracks: Nexus Flux”

Our 'Nexus Flux' selection isolates a luminescent cloud of syncretic, cybernetic electronic hybrids. This virtual mass of sonic memes crystallises elements of synth-driven Afro-Futurism, Sino-steppers and neon-blue-eyed R&B with a shared taste for sweeter, exotic dissonance and tingling, trance-y arpeggios. From the simulated tropical timbres of Fatima Al Qadiri's 'D-medley' thru the percolating Middle Eastern Electro rhythms of GoldFFinch's 'Arabian Prince', to the Ibizan float of DJ Wilson's 'Night Heat' remix or Bathcrones' inverted, pseudo-oriental crunk, everyone seems to be searching beyond their own horizon for newer, futuristic sounds. We can hear the influence of the Pan-Ghetto diaspora on Berlin Techno in Modeselektor's 'German Clap', and the pull of the Far East on Desto & Jimi Tenor's 'Eightfold Path', while the likes of Ikonika and Balil hone in on deliciously affective and kaotic tunings with their respective remixes for DJ Madd and Francesco Tristano. Finishing the selection, we find two stranger examples of synth music's ever morphing genetic make-up; TG Gondard's curiously autistic Robo-R&B ballad 'The Phalanx' and Tyme. X Tujiko's Sino-wave Electro-pop. As the contours of established genres become ever more fluid, decentralised, and yet connected, we predict these boundary-stepping fusions will only proliferate exponentially. We can't wait to hear what's coming next.
