working name of Sam Annand, from Dundee, UK
“Architeq’s command of beats, space, sonics and timing is masterful. Rarely do you hear tracks that manage to take in the rare, sad, strange sonic magic of buzzing 80s synths, the head-nodding pleasure of the best hip-hop tracks of the past two decades, and the fearless rythmic experimentation that’s now possible in 2009 and beyond. Both the Birds of Prey EP and it’s companion remix EP manage to do all this and more in spades, and Samuel Annand’s vision for his music shines through it all, clear as the sound of a bell. Whether his music makes you get down, lounge out sideways, or just sit up and listen, these are Sci Fi journey beats that everyone and their mother would do well to pay attention to. Timeless music.” - Kid Kameleon of XLR8R Magazine.
