  1. The more I listen to this album the more I can't help but agree with the criticism levied towards it... It's a shame the direction OPN has started to go in. Particularly, what spooks me the most is that this was his most predictable record to date. It makes sense for him to have made this after Age Of. Whereas every record before was him toying with sounds he had never used before. The sample chops of replica, to the sleek retro-futurism of r+7, to the dark hypergrunge of garden of delete, to the cult like cyber-rnb of age of.. None of it sounded like what came before it. This is the first album where I can understand exactly the progression between the albums. It disappoints me in retrospect and I worry for his musical future. However, on the bright side, other artists have been picking up the slack and continuing some of OPN's past strains of music incredibly well. In particular I want to point to 2 specific albums for fans who'd like to hear more. First off, Maxwell Sterlings gorgeous new record which is his most polished to date. It sounds an incredible amount like r+7 and is amazing in it's own right. In my opinion it takes the sounds OPN toyed with on that record and pushes them even further into the realms of psychedelia. A must-listen for anyone itching for that 2013-2014 OPN sound. Another record I'd like to recommend is James Ferraro's latest installment of his "Mirai" series. Ferraro is good friends with OPN, and their sounds have seen parallels at many points in eachothers respective careers. This record in particular sounds incredibly similar to Garden of Delete, with similar sounds laced throughout. If you don't believe me, listen to "mutant standard" and then listen to "x." https://jjamesferraro.bandcamp.com/album/terminus
  2. This was recorded for Garden of Delete (sort of.. it was the pre-GoD sessions that led him to the sound of the record.) but didn't make it onto the album proper. But, you're in luck. A few years later it was re-purposed for the Good Times soundtrack! It sounds decidedly less Garden of Delete-y but it's still excellent nonetheless.
  3. d'Eon aswell. Idk if he can be considered IDM but he atleast gets an honorary mention for doing the music for keyboards series. https://twitter.com/ddddddeon/status/1390809271345029120?s=20
  4. I assumed this was gonna be a thread for those weird paparazi stalkers pics we get of people like Kanye. Walking around in the daylight unbothered & unaware.
  5. post somthn better rather then complaining
  6. Givin this the ol' bumpy
  7. That sounds really cool, I'll have to give at a more thorough listen. Delta 9 fluctuates between insane noise tracks and blistering fast hardcore songs, but not both at the same time.
  8. I just woke up so I haven't heard that all the way through, but listening to the first track and then skimming the rest I'd say you need to listen to some hardcore if you want more like that.
  9. He had some great quotes aswell. One of my favs was probably "ꁕ͐ͥ͗̒͌̍҉͈͔͇̭̗̱ꁖ͔͈ͬ̓͐̑̑͜͜͝ꁗ̴̝̺̜̗̬͓̑̅͊͛ͤ̆͑ͅꁘ̡͙̱̮̺̾ͮ̌̎̽̅͑ͅꁙ̨̥͚͊̋͒̓̓͆ꁚͧͦͤͨ͘҉̣̱̙̗͖ꁛ̔ͧ̆̓̋ͪ̒͐҉̠͕͙͕͖͙̘͍͡ꁜ̇͌̈͂͏̘̫̤ꁝ̭̜̝̯̼̰̿ͦͬͯ̒͘ꁞ̡̖̣͙͖ͮ͒̊̄ͦ̐ꁟ̡̹̟̘̀̈̏̽͘͜ͅꁠ̠̜̺͍͇̝ͫ̋̈́ꁡ̴̖̖̬̠̝͇ͮͦꁢ̼̗ͪͮ̋́ͧ́͠ꁣ̩͓͎̪̊͆̽ꁤ̶̣̲͉ͥ̌̑ͅꁥ̍ͮ͐ͯ͊ͮ̓̔҉͚̞̳͇̤ꁦ̧͇̟̜̞̺̽̿́ͅꁧ̟̲̖͍̤̦͙ͨͪ̾̄ͫ̿̉ͬ͡ꁨ̫̠̘ͭ̄ͮ̃̀͞ꁩ͊͂͏̙͔͎̺̠̤̻̼͖ꁪ̭̺͒͂̒̓̎̓̀̚͠ꁫ̢̥̙̭̠̠̎͑͗̏̃ͥ̍͠ꁬ̵͈͍͐ͩ̊̒ͨ̄͆̎ꁭ̷̸̨͎̱̠̳ͣ̿́ꁮ͖͍̩̬̲̭͓͇̓ͮͬ̔́ꁯ̸̛ͯ̽҉͈̱̖̦͖̜̠ꁰ͕̘̦̗̂̉̏̉̊̑͘ꁱ̽̍̂͛͏̛̤̼̦̰̪͇͎̟ꁲ̴̝̬ͯ̽̔ͣ͝ꁳ̶̸̷̰̥͚͉̳͇̭̞̳͛̍̆ꁴ͙̝̘͔̄ͨ͜ͅͅꁵ̠̰͎̗̬̤̮̲̹̿̓̆ͩꁶ̺͚̟̩ͯ̀ͅꁷ͕̠̽̽͋ͬ̚."
  10. Own his album right down up down left on cd. Guy was a genius and his passing was a tragedy. Not at all breakcore though, not even in the slightest.
  11. Finishing up some homework. Give me a fast and hard album to finish it to.
  12. very kool thread, will have this one pinned.
  13. I think pigeon-holing it as vaporwave is kinda dumb. I was never a big fan of this record in particular, but I've been getting more and more into it recently. Particularly the track "bags" which I think is splendid. I like listening to this and r+7 back to back. Can't get enough of these albums sound pallets. Nothing really like them outside some old ass albums from forever ago either.
  14. DOOM dies. Sophie dies. Daft Punk breaks up. Soon to come: Aphex Twin goes missing without explanation, police unable to find him. Burial retires from music after his album planned for release in 2025 gets leaked. Planet Mu headquarters burn down without explanation, hundreds of album masters lost in the blaze. Bjork announces retirement after her child passes. Famed DAW developers "Ableton" announce their closure and warn that all copies of Live 8 and higher will be render functionless by May 18th. Thom Yorke passes away on the 25th of August. Boards of Canada follows suit of daft punk, posting a mysterious video implying breakup on November 21st.
  15. I was thinking more along the lines of emailing him strings of numbers+words with no context from an email he doesn't recognize.
  16. My uncle is anti-vaxx and actually thinks that 5g is causing covid. What should I do about this?
  17. Cool but confusing, what exactly is this?
  18. Terminal 11 also has a cat As does VHS head Who doesn't at this point.
