This is Martin Wheeler aka Vector Lovers' first full-length release since 2011's compilation Electrospective, featuring 16 new tracks from the electro-ambient producer. Although marking a return to the synthetic melodies and "Kraftwerk-in-Tokyo" influences of Vector Lovers' eponymous 2003 debut, this album takes a strikingly different route in terms of its production. As the title suggests, iPhonica was composed, mixed and produced entirely on Martin's iPhone 4. Developed over a period of 10 months, the album was made with nothing more than an iPhone and a pair of Sennheiser HD25 headphones. Numerous locations would stand in as makeshift recording venues, including train carriages, a doctor's waiting room, cafes in Berlin, off the beaten track on the Yorkshire moors, and Martin's back garden. Blip Interactive's Nanostudio app became Martin's weapon of choice for synthesizing, sampling and composing the 16 tracks that make up iPhonica. This album celebrates 10 years of the artist's Vector Lovers project and more solemnly marks the end of it also.
