Its difficult to put a genre on this one, ther than percussive. From there, it sometimes goes to house, sometimes to electronica, and sometimes more to dub. The best is to listen to it.
Favorite track: Migration.
Archivist's 'Migration' EP is a multi-dimensional exploration and experiment in sonics and uses of sincere emotional movement to elicit listener feedback. The EP maintains an effective balance between practical motion and subjective listening while remaining free of convolution.
Alex Markey (Archivist) has been an active part of Seattle's growing techno scene, along with the superb Secondnature crew. For the last few years he's seen success as an incredibly prominent DJ, curator, and event promoter known for his lengthy, tactile and proficient sets. Archivist has shared bills with Tin Man, Efdemin, Israel Vines and a host of others. The 'Migration' EP is Markey's debut release and acts as his commentary on a form of musical expression that's best to leave uncategorized. Expect to hear more from this talented DJ and producer as his journey continues.
