Erick Arc Elliott, one third of the Brooklyn rap group Flatbush Zombies, has played an important role in crafting the signature sound of FBZ over the past few years with his ability to produce. Today, The Architect dropped a solo project for the first time in a long time. That new project is called ARCstrumentals Vol. 1, featuring fifteen intrumentals. The project is not broken up track by track, but plays all the way through as one large musical experience. Erick made it clear the sequencing of this project was completely intentional. "This was originally created to replicate the feeling 'we used to feel' growing up as kids making our own mixtapes from songs that played on the radio. You would never get the full song from beginning to end, you would sometimes get some radio interference, commercials, etc. So of course you will hear some skips, pops, abrupt cuts and radio noise. That's what made it beautiful." Tracklist: 1. Bordeaux Hos [0:00 - 2:13] 2. Water [2:14 - 3:55] 3. Gold Wrap [3:56 - 5:59] 4. Pac Lives [6:00 - 7:16] 5. Kegal Excercise [7:17 - 9:35] 6. Soul Glow [9:36 - 11:02] 7. Jadedforshe [11:05 - 14:35] 8. Love Shawty [14:36 - 17:17] 9. Fried Balogna [17:18 - 20:26] 10. X 2013 [20:32 - 23:42] 11. Machine [23:43 - 25:37] 12. For Your Momma [25:38 - 27:22] 13. Tricky [27:23 -29:28] 14. Lenny [29:27 - 32:43] 15. Stay Back [32:52 - End]
