  1. I know I put the warp stable off limits but it was the disappearance of Autechre’s Peel Sessions that kind of put me over the top. A lot of old Mo’ Wax stuff is missing too. A lot of DJ mixes seem to be victims of this too, probably for licensing reasons. I’ve been getting surprising mileage off some of DJ Krush’s old stuff I used to listen to in college. I missed DJ Krush’s Code 4109 in particular.
  2. Does the "Feed Me Weird Things" reissue give you any hope on this front?
  3. Ha no yeah exactly. I pulled my mp3s back out because I had releases that aren’t and probably will never be on streaming. That’s what I mean - files you still keep even with the whole worlds music at your fingertips on Spotify etc Not so much talking technology - I’m talking about releases that aren’t and probably won’t ever be on streaming platforms.
  4. Outside of the usual suspects (Autechre, Boards, Aphex, etc), which albums/eps/singles/12 inches do you most keenly miss when you're on the popular streaming platforms? Which mp3s/flacs do you find yourself reaching for the most?
  5. Beyond Barker & Baumecker's work, is there anything else (artists/albums) I should check out on the strength of Debiasing and Utility? I know I'm late to the party, but this is easily my favorite discovery this year.
  6. Is this Autechre’s saddest record? Is there another album of theirs that is so melancholy? I think this is what makes it so distinctive to me. It’s violent and huge and brooding and …. sad.
  7. I kind of have the same relationship with Amon Tobin that I do with DJ Shadow. It’s not that their later work is bad, it’s that their early work is so fucking good. So when I get in an Amon Tobin mood, it’s almost always Bricolage/Permutation/Supermodified that gets put on, not so much the later stuff. I like large slashes of his later work, but I just prefer the golden age Ninja Tune stuff.
  8. Anybody here use Vox? https://vox.rocks/
  9. Thanks for digging up these resources @MIXL2 I'll check it out.
  10. @Satans Little Helper sorry you're saying you use Bleep and Bandcamp for playback? Or just a backup?
  11. I'm curious what folks here do with their mp3/flac collections. I got on the Spotify train for a long time, but I've noticed as a techno fan that lots of records just disappear (especially 12 inches) and then there's just a lot that just isn't on Spotify and probably never will be (Rephlex, Old Skam, etc etc). Do any of you guys use cloud services for storage and playback? What does your set up look like these days for portable listening? I have an iPhone and primarily use a Mac, if that matters.
  12. Thanks for the recommendation. I like this record.
  13. Thanks - so the disk has the poster image on it? I want to make sure I understand.
  14. Somehow this track feels hyper-futuristic but also impossibly old. Like Lovecraftian old. I can't put my finger on how they created this effect.
  15. I currently have an Ableton Push. Though I like the Push in a lot of ways, I feel that: 1) Trying to play melodies on drum pads is suboptimal and murder for my fingers during long sessions 2) It's preventing me from developing more skill with a standard keyboard (the Push's approach to chords etc is cool but does not translate readily to other musical contexts) I've had my eye on this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005M02VNW/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza but I have to say I was surprised by how shitty the key bed was on their Launch Key series and so I am a bit apprehensive. The Ableton integration is nice though. My cousin who is a big analogue head says that I should skip the midi controller, and find an analogue synth such as the Minilogue http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Minilogue that can double as a midi input. There are limitations with that approach I'm sure. Anyways, I have $500. What should I do? I appreciate any input. PS - the Komplete is very cool and can help a noob like me with scales, but I am unclear how well it bridges the gap between the NI and Ableton worlds. Keyboard was very nice in store though.
