  1. Not at all. You don't own the music. You have a copy of the music he owns. It's not yours to do whatever you like with. However, licensing deals (For YouTube to make money from and pay the artist pennies) quite nicely allow a little creative freedom for the individual. That's pretty cool really because there was a minute where YouTube was taking down all sorts of stuff... 2-3 tips for figuring out what can be used without being removed or muted: - Check if the artist has a YouTube VEVO account. If they do, there is a large chance your video will be muted or removed on most platforms. - Search for the song you want to use on YouTube. If you find that others have uploaded it (So, a non artist/label run VEVO account) then it'll be fine to use. Best case, look in the description. If YouTube recognises the song, then that is a solid place to be as that means there is some sort of license in place so you can use it. If it doesn't recognise it, then cool...BUT...it just means there is no license in place, so it could be taken down at some point in the future if a label decides to pull away from YouTube. - Upload the song (with any video you like over the top) to YouTube and set it to unlisted. Leave it up for a few hours. That way the YT backend will do it's work and let you know if there is an issue before you've spent time shooting and editing. NOTE: YT telling you the video has copyright claims and cannot be monetised doesn't affect anything at all other that you not being able to make money on it. It'll still appear on YouTube and play just fine. Short Version: Do your thing. Don't worry about it. You wont get into trouble. Just read the notifications when you upload.
  2. All of his music is owned by himself and a publisher. YouTube have licenses in place so that artists music can be uploaded for 'personal use'. So, not for advertising your business or services (Although you can, but legally you'd open yourself up to potential trouble). It does get flagged on YouTube but only in a way where you cannot monetise your work because it isn't all your work. It is still playable, shareable and doesn't affect the standing of your account. I have no idea on Facebook, but if they don't have those same licences, it may get flagged as you say. You'd likely get a notification and be asked to remove it within x amount of time otherwise you'll get a strike on your account. I can't imagine it would be anything harsh if you comply with their takedown.
  3. Well, it worked. The Cornish Acid hat just went live and I copped one fast as I could.
  4. Best version, ever.
  5. https://www.instagram.com/p/CNQ4-SUDAT3/ Interesting. Wonder if it is true?

    I'm so lost. That seems like crazy money to be spending on anything; never-mind on a non-exclusive right to digital artwork.
  8. He seems to be really into it with repeat listens, no? I remember being really disappointed with it when I first got it. It actually took a long time for me to get into much beyond the prepared piano stuff...
  9. Was just about to post this old magazine off to someone when I thought I'd have a flick through... Turns out there is a Drukqs review in there. I thought it might be of some interest... I couldn't find a thread for this, so if there is one, please can you merge this in there?
  10. Whole series! It's called"Can't Get You Out Of My Head"
  11. Avril 14th and Rhubard in Ep 1 of the new Adam Curtis doc on BBC...
  12. I do this with video work. Will mainly shoot on the best format available, avoiding filters and plugins which claim to give a downgraded look. Once done, I'll run the entire thing through some sort of analogue process to get to where I need it to be...Far more authentic.
  13. https://archive.org/details/AphexTwinAllUser18081971SoundcloudTracks Under "download options" click the down arrow on the format you need. Should be a link to grab everything in one zip from there.
  14. Ended up here after looking through that insta: https://lannerchronicle.wordpress.com/2021/01/02/phlegm-ep-under-construction/ Nicely put together, but I wish that blog was searchable/organised in some way! Seems to only show you posts in most recent order...or am I missing something?
  15. It's a shame as it will never happen, but he needs an archivist. Someone to dig through all of the shit he has and just get down to it with info, etc. on all these random tracks and find those back stories.
  16. No you aren't. So sick when an album or song clicks and you get it. Whenever that is. The best thing is that from there, you can just own it. Heliosphan is incredible but in 2020 I am not going to listen to it 15 times a day. I wish I only just discovered it, to get that feeling back.
  17. Kinda feels like one person is going in a little hard on IDEM for no real reason other than to prove a point which he already made in his first response. All feels a bit 'internet 2006'. I'm sure things had moved along since then. Would have been nicer to have just read through some excited talk about the album in question rather than some sideman chatter akin to "my dads harder than your dad' but whatever. Now I am contributing to that. Great. PS. I wasn't that arsed about SAW 85-92 for a bit. Post RDJ it clicked...love it.
  18. When you talk about your friend, I feel like you could be talking about me...but I still can 100% get down with what you say. In fact, I am kind of envious. My listening in the past 15 years is vastly different compared to before that... Maybe it is time for a Walkman again.
  19. Yeah, it's not new...same as the mp3 I've had since July '17.
  20. My first Aphex album. For some reason, at the age of 17, I bought it on CD and vinyl. Glad I did... I used to work in the original CEX store (Computer Exchange as it was called, back then) where it was introduced to me by Charlie Brooker (of Black Mirror/Nathan Barley fame) who I worked with there for about 4 years. Most of the staff were into the album but Ventolin would always get one or two people moaning. We'd be super busy on a Saturday afternoon where all the staff would be locked in working with customers and I'd always use that chance to press "Repeat" and see how long it would take for people to notice how long it had been on for. Sometimes you could get a full 20 minutes before someone would run the the CD player screaming at me. Great times. Alberto is on of the finest pieces of music ever written. Like the OP, whenever I revisit, it still sounds so fresh. Took me a few years to really notice the dates and realise it was written over several years. I remember making a MiniDisc version where the songs played chronologically...
