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.
released 27 January 2015

An established DJ and event promoter in the Seattle scene - and a member of the city's Secondnature collective - Alex Markey (a.k.a. Archivist) will release his debut EP as a producer later this month via the burgeoning Blankstairs label. Titled the Migration EP, the record will offer four dense efforts from Markey (as well as a remix from Secondnature cohort Josef Gaard), including the elongated "Trophic." Stretching out past the seven-minute mark, "Trophic" is an efficient techno production, one which allows only pieces of effected percussion and a sparse bass sequence to peak out above its bleak, hazy atmospheres. Archivist's "Trophic" track can be downloaded in full below before his Migration EP sees an official release on January 27 via Blankstairs.
