From the delightful NSA-O-MATIC:
Recently released NSA documents revealed the existence of TUNINGBAZZARE, a full-take collection point that deanonymizes one tenth of all internet traffic. General Keith Alexander, Director of the National Security Agency, assured the public that the program is only used to combat terrorism.
This is generative fiction, and a joke. However, as the website indicates, “Truth is scarier than fiction.”
Snowden changed the world with the leak of previously private NSA data. Whether or not you agree with his tactics, it’s apparent we’re living under the shadow of the NSA. Our data is being commoditized with or without the help of the online services we use. Like in WarGames, the only way to win is not to play – an increasingly impossible feat given our reliance on technology.
This mix follows the “split-format” first introduced in SHOCKED.
In the first half, you will find a diverse array of modern dubstep produced with the “leftfield” approach that I like to take. In the 2nd half, the mix will switch to a more experimental, but mid-tempo format. All of the tunes were either compiled or produced exclusively for this mix to capture the paranoid atmosphere of the U.S. as a whole of the last several months, but in particular the Snowden affair.
This is SPYGAMES.
