The Hacktivism VHS Single Series will be an ongoing series where we ask artists to produce two 5-minute sides and we package them in a cassette disguised as a small VHS.

For our first single, we decided to go for something more challenging; we asked long-form ambient artist Achromaticist to produce two short pieces with a slightly brighter tone than what he usually works on. What we got was surprising: a mixture of Robin Guthrie, Brian Eno influences and Achromaticist's signature dark tone. This C10 sounds like forces tearing between good and evil. Throwing this single into your cassette player is a lot like throwing the VHS into the VCR in Ringu. We can't guarantee that you will die in 7 days but you might.

We are happy to have Achromaticist as our first VHS Single.
