Whilst scrolling to research record label Mappa's home town of Lučenec in Slovakia, I found many photos of the regions architecture. The Slovak heritage art Facebook page provided some photos of abandoned historical architecture and for me the thought occurred of what memories these Slovakian spaces hold.

Mappa's newest release from Infant, face first in the entangled, could of been recorded behind one of the rotten stone arches of Lučenec. This "sound story" has chapters and each placed is deeper into a digital soil as you progress. Infant draws heavy influence from hot wet chaos, the same sensations of looking under a log after a summer rain.



To me this music fits perfectly into a youthful vision Ive noticed to take shape globally. A post logo generation I fall into personally, who after being bombarded with busy traffic and global horror via the screens, we look for beautiful graphics in the dirt. There are remnant of pop culture on Infant's record, the "Cold Clus" tuned sounds, fragmented synthesis and digital resonators with a wobbled choir radio. Dub techno at its most fun and abstract is also present in these halls but maybe this presence is more akin to humans obsession with recursive systems. The feedback is essential to the Physarum transport network and maybe this is the real popular culture.

The halls of Mappa are open to be explored:
