  1. Ohh, that is decently exciting. Now where is Lxury dropping their mixes??
  2. There's multiple chronologies- the order he posted them, the order they were originally produced in, and the era he claims they were made- which is indicated for some tracks but not all. There's various playlists and mixes out there on youtube and soundcloud that attempt to put them in categories based on approximate era or approximate vibe. AFAIK there's nothing definitive
  3. Seems like a mix of live recordings and rare recordings (web/vinyl/unreleased exclusives), the animation is the aphex NFT with different color overlays
  4. Since I can't play keyboard for shit but can sing decently, I was interested in this when v1 was out, but didn't want to shell out for the "special mic" when I didn't know if it would work for me. Looks like with v2 you can use your own mic, and the current discount is decent, so I picked it up.
  5. I still remember hearing the opening of 4 for the first time in my bedroom, at my desk trying to do homework, the warm glow of the lamp, the quiet outside. Took me away instantly. I've always felt like this is the music he really wanted to make. The pastoral tones mixed with tricky tracker work, before tracker-madness/competitiveness in the scene (pretty sure he said he and Tom were trying to out-do eachother toward the late 90s) led to Drukqs (which I have much love for). You see him taking a sharp turn away from tracker stuff with Analord, and then gradually working back to the tricky stuff with Tuss/Syro. Syro felt like somewhat of a return to the balance he had originally struck with RDJ, ofc with years of experience/influence in between.

    Haven't we learned that anticipating a release too hard makes it not happen?
  7. I've often thought if I had to describe his more intense stuff to someone unfamiliar that I'd call it "insane computer jazz, in the best way"
  8. Lol you resurrected the thread after 5 years....after resurrecting it in 2008 from 2007. You really keep the flame for this track and thread. AFX blessings be upon ye. Also fuck yeah the track.

    Ahh, that's what we're missing, we need to wait for the 4th day in Decembruary 2021
  10. Big same bro. Used to play the leak a lot when I was a teen, mowing the lawn...listening takes me back, lol. I found a youchube playlist of the original leaks- This track f'kin bangs- This turned into "Hydrodynamic" on the official release and it just doesn't hit the same way for me. It seems like a lot of the tracks that made it from the leak to the final got a spacier treatment, with longer intros and a sparser, more "digital sheen" sound, where the originals were louder and more to the point, which was endearing in a way.
  11. Amazing to hear a track from my teen years remixed by someone else I was listening to but considered part of a totally disparate world. Makes me question if life is a simulation, etc. The vocal treatment (especially "transpose......" getting pulled apart around 2:15) is very tasty, and the chugging/spacey mid-section accentuates a note that the original song hit for me, with a sense of being swept away by waves of something overwhelming. climaxing into some classic tom splashy-but-clipped kit sounds about 3/4 through. and Finally re-emerging with the original feel mostly intact, but from "behind bars" as I'd call it. It feels like Tom understands the song, which makes me happy in a way I didn't expect. Or maybe I'm just hearing what I want.
  12. Just now discovering the 22 minute live intro and hot daaamn, instant re-listen. If you've slept on this too, you need to listen. I'd kill to see an hour of him(/them?) doing it up like that. Nothing to really add, just appreciateposting
  13. He says in the comments this latest one ends that way because the tape runs out there lol
