Responding to illegitimate and pirated artistic forms which saturate our contemporary media environment, Sydney-based producer Chunyin has created four bristling club tracks to contribute to the din. Sickly text-to-speech samples of facebook notification settings on Look Back On This  highlight the disturbing politics of digital memories.
