Premiere: 214 – Exposure To Winds
There’d been a change in the atmosphere, you could feel it in the air without even drawing the curtains. Thunderous storms had torn through the forest, ravaging the trees and forcing all inhabiting creatures back into their hiding places. The rain had since cleared, but the winds remained until sunrise, wreaking havoc under the veil of darkness.
214 has built a reputation for his finely crafted electro, notching up releases for labels like CPU, Shipwrec, Frustrated Funk and Cultivated Electronics over the last decade. Now he gears up for the release of his third studio album Exposure to Winds, which sees him draw from his experiences living in the remote town of North Bend, the setting for David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. The 8-track LP, underpinned by 214’s relationship with nature and his isolated way of living, takes influence from the roots of electro channeled through his natural surroundings, which results in a timeless collection of electronic music.
