  1. was pointed out here that the beginning of "recks on" sounds a lot like this: run dmc sample at 1:55 is used in a really similar way near the end of "the plc": also there's sort of a whirling sound at the end of YJY UX that sounds like the sound at 6:18 here: thinking of cases where they don't just sample other music--but sort of "recreate" a moment from some else's track instead of twisting it into something completely different. idk if that distinction makes sense.
  2. eerily similar to me recently
  3. woops, forgot the /s tag!!!! sorry reddit!!
  4. is this the new Jordan Peterson thread now?
  5. wtf? I was complimenting you. I was calling you brave!!! guess b1000 is more the modest, under-the-radar type. I get it. 😉 not everyone wants their heroic acts of petty retaliation broadcast to the whole world.
  6. good to know that if I ever react with "facepalm" to one of b1000's posts, he will immediately retaliate by responding in kind to 8 completely unrelated posts of mine. and in my opinion that's the mature thing to do, I really was out line there.
  7. this might be really old right?
  8. immediately voted for autechre in the poll out of instinctive fanboyism, then remembered I didn't actually listen to anything else.
  9. edit: nvm, fuck it also, ignatius, I don't think anyone's saying you have to value or pay attention to anything. just that ppl should just say they don't like something instead of solipsistically (is that a word lol) dismissing it as bs and assuming that the creator had some ulterior motive and doesn't actually care how it sounds.
  10. I think the takeaway is really simple though. Ae is legitimate music--as we all know. And so is the academic electronic music posted. I think both would sound like random noise to 95% of the population. But as Sean recently said: Awkward translation aside, it's perfectly reasonable to extend this principle to music that isn't Autechre right?

  12. Again, I regularly see people throw the same exact criticisms at autechre. like that plaid or aphex are technically interesting and make actual songs, but autechre only care about mathematical generative processes, not musical results. it's a criticism that gets leveled at the boys constantly. (and if you read through this thread you might have some reason to believe it tbh.) even plaid themselves recently said that newer autechre is only "interesting academically." I really suspect that anyone who spends their lives composing finished works/making tracks is very invested in producing end results that "sound good" to them, even if those results aren't normal songs. completely agreed.
