    Well said. That first bit the brothers articulated hits on the core of music hauntology that's been ascribed to their work and others, especially within genres like vaporwave and hypnagogic pop. These ventures into styles and aesthetics that were flash-in-pan moments in pop culture and music history that were created and experienced then never took off and instead languished as distant, all but forgotten or destroyed artifacts and memories. That's why I have such a love-hate relationship with retro-oriented music. So much stuff, good, bad, and flat-out cheap is just retreading existing and often very well known media and art. It's a sea of postmodern mediocrity that accelerates to end products jam packed with existing references and devoid of any real originality or ethos, even if it's earnest and well-done. Defenders of the status quo will point to earlier movements like hip-hop sampling, plunderphonics, any revival genres of the 90s and 00s but what they don't appreciate is the context of those artists efforts in which crate-diggers, nerds, and general aficionados of the obscure and underrated sampled and were influenced by stuff they truly loved. They had no fad or hype insight in these pre-internet, pre-social media and web 2.0 and 3.0 underground scene. Stuff that did become overused - the amen break or frequently used movie samples like Blade Runner - were done so out of sincere popularity and became more like established canon than easy tropes. We're in for a sea of really, really overwhelmingly redundant music and media in the decades to come but I have hope that bubbling underneath are mixes like this and artists like Boards of Canada who continue to forge unique music from the underappreciated and underutilized minutia of the past. Until the last few centuries only truly revered and protected art was remembered and heralded. Unremarkable or flat out bad art was discarded and forgotten but so was the art of those who did not have social clout and/or were oppressed. Music could only be passed down via oral tradition or notation. We're at a crossroads now where we can access a lot of still existing but obscure media still archived or literally hoarded away, digitize and preserve it, and then re-contextualize it with research and discussion. That's what made this mix so amazing. A watmmer who I don't think is active here anymore, Tauhid / Deion Sanders, once mentioned how the best DJ mixes aren't ones that are cohesive in the overt sense - genre-specific seamless flows - nor ones with a staggering mix of heavy hitting tracks or crowd favorites - but instead the ones with diverse arrays of styles, genres, and deep cuts that are meticulously put together in mix more akin to a collage. A mix that has an inherent sense of narrative to it or at least yearns for people to engage with the way they would a piece of original art.

    Squarepusher was the shit. Gonna be listening to that set over and over again I'm sure. This whole event had far exceeded my expectations. BoC's mix was super unique and I'm excited to dig into the individuals artists' catalogs and mine out other crazy psychedelic gems. In a way it has a better shelf life than if it was all new material (Still holding out for the BoCset, of course). I'm sure something else has to be on the horizon for them before too long. Autechre are the real MVP's. But they always are. The amount of love they've shown for their fanbase the last few years has been unreal. It's a good time to be into this music. I'm really excited for whatever's coming next.

    Our first compilation, We Are The Music Makers | Volume One came out back in 2004. Since then, I've always wanted to do a Volume 2, following the same formula of having the community contribute tracks, vote on the best tracks by the community, and then have a professional-pressed CD of the release. It would be great if we could do a vinyl version as well, but of course that costs money - the way we did it back in 2004 was by getting at least 100 preorders to fund the CD pressing. This was long before things like Kickstarter, GoFundMe, etc. changed the crowdfunding landscape. Now, we could do the same, or maybe go the Kickstarter route like we did with the Caustic Window LP? Have stretch goals for vinyl versions, shirts, etc.? I'm 100% open to ideas, suggestions, etc. on getting this off the ground and making Volume Two a reality (and have fun doing it) - so let's hear some of your ideas and suggestions!

    it's a good mix, i'm not angry since I thought BoC were herding goats on a mountainside, pausing every so often to blow into a horn made of an elk antler to summon representatives for all creatures of the forest so that the elves don't impose their un-diplomatic and otherworldly views on the townfolk and cause a rift in the council of wood whispering elders.

    I worry he'll go hardcore right-wing if he gets more active. I say this as someone who was a Ron Paul fan / budding libertarian when I joined this forum back in 2008 or so. In hindsight I was doing it as a contrarian to my own leftist tendencies (I went from centrist to angry leftist in late high school and early college) and to try to salvage some family relationships (which was naive and regrettable in hindsight). The hypocrisy of the Tea Party and more apparent right shift of the GOP got me back to moderate then liberal sentiments by 2012. Whatever sincerity and truly "social progressive/economic conservative" / small government ethos remained in 2008 was completely excised and appropriated falsely into the current populist far right paleo-conservative / fascist soup that is the GOP now. So if someone has been maintaining "libertarian ideals" through the current populist right movement of the last few years they likely won't revert to more liberal or progressive stances and instead get radicalized by the alt right or, at best, cynically indifferent. That said, it might be possible to swing some people back from alt-right rhetoric, especially younger cynical folks who are still fairly detached from actual voting and activism. I've been binge-watching a lot of "breadtube" and "left-tube" videos lately - contrapoints, shaun, philosophytube, etc. - what's remarkable is these channels all emerged as a reaction to the very consistent swing of previously apathetic or nonpolitical gamers, reviewers, contrarian skeptics/atheists/academics (sam harris, jordan peterson), people who watch rogan or dave rubin non-political YT celebrities and their followers toward this anti-PC / anti-SJW sentiment and hysteria (gamergate was the flashpoint) and then toward more iffy right-wing and/or conspiracy stuff via pragerU, ben shapiro, saragon, infowars, stefan molyneux, and a slew of other dogwhistle heavy racists, fascists, anti-immigrant, anti-semitic, anti-LQBT, anti-feminists, etc. Many of these "lefttube" figures were non-political themselves and literally found their own content and/or feeds littered with alt right clickbait, so they came up with reaction videos - ones notably more fleshed-out production, thought-out arguments, and in-depth retorts. It's just as much a reaction to right-wing views as it is an alternative to the more knee-jerk, topical, and strawman reactions from many liberals and progressives which come from understandable frustration and anger but do little if anything to actually encourage more substantive leftist ideological ideas or proposals. I find them a lot more encouraging, even calming, compared to the years I've spent watching say, politcal satire via SNL, Daily Show, or binge-reading r/politics or even this thread. It's cathartic but ultimately fatiguing mentally, leaving a feeling of unresolved anger or gloomy futility. The thing that is the most fascinating, and why I brought this up, is when you read the comments and discussions on r/breadtube there are a lot of people, zoomers teens and college kids mostly, who have attested to being brought out of far-right and fringe beliefs that they were sucked into years ago. So that means some those depressingly cynical internet-obsessed edgelords and keks online are actually getting rehabilitated when alternative narratives are presented to them. I just hope that more are to come, and that more will actually manage to get out of their understandably nihilist bubbles and vote the current regimes out.

    some phone ins, some nice mixes, some lame and embarrassing mixes. overall cute, but nothing like WARP20 or even WARP10 (wasn't paying attention then hehe) I think overall the marketing and design was poor. unclear what this actually was. They were realllllly stretching to "create hype" with the WXAXRXP shit and in the future you will have heard this or w/e. Press should have been this: Hi guys, WARP here. We're turning 30! Over the weekend we've asked our artists, new and old, to play some music on NTS radio over 3 days. Some of them will play their music, others just music they love, even some surprises~ have fun! We know we will!

    seeing an unspecified 2 hour chunk on a Free internet radio stream doesn't automatically mean it's going to be a !!2 hour long!! stream of unannounced unreleased new music. not everyone is as cool as Autechre i'm afraid. autechre are truly the best band ever.

    Greetings! I released a pair of EPs recently: https://eczem.bandcamp.com/album/vormaks --- https://eczem.bandcamp.com/album/veliform These collections are cut from the same sonic cloth, and are from overlapping sessions: shared tools, synth patches, sequencers, etc... Most of them have a very realtime and live-jam core to them... and most of them are more static than I would like, structurally. Hopefully they are still interesting, at least for timbre and texture. Vormaks, in particular, works best with gapless play. Here are some download codes: Vormaks: Veliform: Thanks for listening, - E

    I really hope this is just another troll post. That meat looks like dogshit formed into discs and then left out in the sun. They actually already look like they are tough before you overcooked them. But of course you'd buy cheap and pre-made patties. Your cheese application is nothing short of horrid and it makes sense that you'd cook them on aluminum foil. Perfect. And that last shot? Make sure you hold them up over your expensive fanboy Autechre art. I wonder how many photos it took to get that just right because your gardenhose arms were shaking holding all of that weight. Way to keep it real though, bruh. I wouldn't eat a burger that was anywhere under a mile near that fingernail or dog dick of a thumb. And don't even get me started on your tableware. What the shit is that? Did you try to find the ugliest and least appetizing thing you could find or were those just the ones your mummy gave you? Jesus fucking christ, Schlitze.

    WATMM radio host that introduces a story between tracks comes to mind. With a script written here which could work for interlude vibes too. That'd be sick as a cassette release. Could also make the theme of the songs more fluid. But, who knows how hard that is to do on a collective scale. I for one would like a more memorable unique collaborative effort instead of a compilation, but das just me.

    when i listen to melodies from mars i am transported from my miserable urban life to a kind of pillowed cushioned pastel softfocus realm where i am carried by beings to a clearing in a forest and lain on a cloud, where i am then cleaned, powdered and freshly diapered and tickled with feathers. aphex twin is there too in the feathery pastel diaper land. he wears an electronic diaper that emits ultrasonic hypnotizing pulses (eg ventolin ep) at all times in order to pacify the enraged, confused rebels who refuse to be embraced, tickled powdered and diaped by the Master himself. thanks for posting this important thread. looking forward to all responses.

    lol you guys, what the fuck are you going to do with any of this crap? fucking towels that you can't use, shit umbrellas you can't use, teddy bears for god sake. i mean yeah i suppose some of it might be worth a little cash one day, but it also might not, and whatever it ends up being worth you ain't gonna exactly be able to retire on it. it's all completely stupid, rampant consumerism and the worst aspects of capitalism. you all totally bought into it blindly and you should all be ashamed of yourselves. last post.

    I appreciate your honesty here and now we now where you stand. You're just basically in the wrong place. I know the forum name can be misleading, I've seen it happen a couple of times before, but it comes from an Aphex Twin song like mentioned earlier. This is just a sub for people to share their own stuff. Go on, poke around the place, maybe you'll find some new influences. Now, like BCM pointed out there is nothing wrong with using those loops and so on, but we are simply so used to tunes which chops everything up to million pieces and then gather them together and create something new. And then we autistically examine them with microscope and blabber them endlessly on the forum. In instance the stuff I love are tracks like this: As you can probably tell that was very chopped. Another example, this time with the use of female voice like you do in your tracks: Maybe those will get a clue what most of us normally listen to. The EKT artists here usually built everything from the scratch plus some even build their instruments like modular kits etc. so it's kinda arrogant if someone with little experience surfs to the board and yells everyone how they suck while his own creations has been built around those bought loops etc. Yes, I know you were hurt and triggered by the not so good feedback, but can you see what I'm saying here, why the loop/sample back is "big thing". You could be really happier on the EDM or dance music forum (again pointed out earlier by the watmm king BCM). I really wish you luck on your path. Keep your mom proud! btw was really surprised Boards Of Canada song was the one you least liked from the big three.

    You know what this place is, right? It's mostly a forum dedicated to fans of 90s electronic music à la Aphex Twin, Boards Of Canada, Autechre, to name a few. This place actively discusses the intricacy of music production because these artists have put so much work and love into their workflow and therefore songs that most of us are eternally fascinated by it. The songs we love were made from scratch using different forms of synthesis and unique ways of sequencing melodies (and drums) that albeit simple evoke a great deal of emotions because they are unique. We have drum machine nerds here that swoon over specific Korg Minipops technicalities because one of our overlords modded his machine to be able to be sequenced externally, which is really interesting because it's a drum machine that was around before the age of MIDI. He also added separate outputs to each drum sound which is not supported by the machine in its normal state which is even cooler. A lot of artists we love have loads of songs with details like this. I don't think anyone is trying to demotivate you here. Taking criticism to heart and experimenting with your workflow should be logical at your stage of making music. Like I said before, WATMM can be a mean coconut, but at its heart it's a bunch of netheads fascinated with experimental music. The "Zeitgeist" is very much alive here, and we're not afraid to point out uncreative processes in a way of helping folks (you) create more unique music that is more akin to you. It's not like you want to use predetermined beats and synth sounds forever, right?

    Listened four times now. It's like stepping into a parallel dimension, or several, and I think that's one thing they try to do with their music. There's an interview somewhere where Mike or Marcus is talking about trying to imagine if the standard genres we know developed different ways, branching into things that don't really exist for us. Or like pop songs from a parallel 1970's. I'm thankful that the vaults of modern culture (say 60's on) have such breadth that there can still be 2 hours of music like this, which would totally stupefy identification by any one individual without the aid of Shazam or the like, or even a community of many thousands with whatever technology at their disposal. They probably knew that they would be lifting many of these things out of obscurity, relatively speaking. It's not ALL that different from what some vaporwave artists and curators do. And that's not meant as a slight at all. There are some mixes on youtube I've listened to so many times and had such appreciation for -- that they are masterpieces in my mind, outside and above any particular artists or songs the mix features. This is how I think the Societas mix will age for me, and I quite love it already. One correction I noticed for the tracklist Joyrex posted is the Flayer song is linked to the wrong mix. Should be this one. Just noticed because this was the first song I wanted an ID on. Such a groove.

    I found myself from the pro BOC mix camp. Didn't have any expectations to BOC mix but was happily surprised with it. With its hazy technicolor world from the psychedelic 70's and the age of Aquarius, it's essentially everything that BOC represents imo. Usually don't listen to stuff like this, so it was super interesting to digest the mixtape. Didn't have a clue what was coming. Was expecting maybe some tired already heard thing, but this was cool. Personally didn't find it gimmicky or pretentious a one bit. Again, congrats Warp and thanks for the plug this far! ❤️
