  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  4. 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"
  5. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. He says in the comments this latest one ends that way because the tape runs out there lol
  11. This specific category on Newegg is what you'd want to be picking from- https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=100007627 600009017 600567584 601322313 601303737 601304476 4017 4018&Order=3
  12. The scratched titles look like they were scratched on something else, scanned and digitally overlayed on the photos. There's some jagged edges and artifacts that look like the result of running through a photoshop adjustment that crushes the range to absolute black/white.
  13. Yes, the Welkin EP is the thing I've come back to the most by him in the last few years, it's cemented itself as one of my favs by him and modern "braindance" in general. I've played Humidex and Firmament in some of my small dj sets for my (less braindance-immersed) friends, they definitely get it.
  14. Holy shit, had no idea this happened, sounds amaze. Would absolutely gib dollars for having.
  15. Dare I say the content lives up to the title. Definitely enjoying the majority of it, digging the sounds on "FM jungle breaks" and "quality content". "Bass lines" isn't doing it for me, but I'm about to listen from the start again. Nice work.
  16. The mini live set was lush and the crowd loved it. Love to see it. I hope he (they) expand on that in future sets.
  17. " Voafose is our all mate Jeremy simmonds, top dude, always been there, lurking in the background, done loads of unreleased ones with him. " Would their collab trax be called "Richard Simmonds" ? (e.g, Vibert Simmonds)
  18. Would be fucking sick (I don't say that often) if it was Lorn, he's been on fire lately and I've loved his sense of atmosphere for years. Not sure how it would work exactly, but I imagine something like a more aggressive next-level Burial (which I'm sure I'm not alone in saying I've been waiting for for a long time). Imagine CCAI with Lorn atmosphere... That being said I'm doubtful.
  19. Laying on a couch in my basement as a teenager nodding off to Tassels- strong visions looking like old film footage of an airplane falling slowly out of the sky, black/white with dark red/yellow moments. An event of terrible panic but viewed from a safe muted distance.

  21. Hi that was me :) Thanks for your help finding my way back in to the venue! It was a pleasure to meet you. Yay, same here! Oh yea, you (understandably) needed a little re-orientation after all that lol. I considered leaving because of Friday obligations, saw the coat-check line, laughed and went straight back in. Was rewarded with some squarepusher, classic dnb-workout aphex (Cock/Ver10 mixed into Box Energy was nice), and general dope selection from Soundmurderer. I feel like everyone who likes to dance stuck around to work out some of that Big Rich Energy™ we had all just been given with no space to express it, after the packed house cleared out. Used to be I thought seeing afx once would be a feat, now it's been 2x and what I want is to see him with enough room to actually dance.
  22. Powerful show. Was great to hear a lot of what sounded like unheard/live(?) stuff plus a couple recognizable big tracks. That ambient opener stuff is beautiful, hope it comes out someday. "Brooklyn Track" sounded lush, was so torn between recording it and just taking it in. Overall heavier in the middle than I expected. But having my expectations twisted are part of what I went for. He looks like he was performing on a laptop with an old-school 4:3 screen, or was it some hardware thing? Also wonder what role his wife is taking in the performance. Shout out to Colin from MN who I met in the smoking section after the show (didn't get your handle), apparently I missed a bunch of you, should have tried to connect more.
  23. Event page on fb says 8-12, so there may be an opener, but I don't think rich is going on at 2am.
