  1. I don't think I could choose between Alpha and Omega Peacock Tail She is P I Love My New Shears Poppy Seed
  2. quickly running through, some of the highlights for me were: Deeper Sounds (album 1) Joy Love Happiness Abstract Soul (which looks like the next album to be released on vinyl) all of the Elements mixes (which have some really good otherwise unreleased tracks) For The Art Of Dance (single track) Music From The Vault Modern Architect If you're looking for vinyl to pick up, the Unofficial Covers Interpretations EP should still be available some places, and has a really epic Chick Corea cover, (doesn't look like the full track is on YT, soundcloud snippet:
  3. Yeh, those are the two tracks that put the hook in me originally, now a full-on sad fanboy, BC subscriber, completist, the full 9 yards 🤓 Oasis is great, though the title track is more or less the only real "house" track - but it was a track I've been waiting to get hold of for years
  4. I've now managed to amass more than 70 records by Fred P - more than any other artist except Aphex Twin and Kraftwerk.

  8. Some nerd somewhere did that in 1996 ..that's my default assumption whenever I feel the temptation to believe I've invented anything new it's held pretty steadfast so far
  9. generative and deterministic techniques? i.e. getting away from the idea of putting notes into a piano roll/grid, editing automation, blocks on a timeline etc - instead designing and building "machines" that operate on a specific internal logic, and with parameters you or another machine can control that influence what comes out. the idea being that you can set the outline of what kind of thing you want, but the machines do the heavy lifting. and if it sounds crap, change the machine or build something else e.g. I want some events to take place, I'd like them to occur approximately 8 times over the next 10 seconds/2 bars, I'd like one of the events to always occur at the start of bar 1, but the rest can happen at any time, quantised to 1/16th of a bar except for the 2nd half of the second bar where the quantisation is a 32nd of a bar, and I'd like those events to be notes in the scale of C minor, and I'd like approximately 1/3 of the notes to be played on a piano, and the rest of the notes to be played on one of a group of 3 phlanged harps in different spatial locations, chosen at random, and whose phlanginess I'm controlling using a knob on my kenton killamix controller you know, that kind of thing..
  10. ugh. wonder what the "content creators" have got to look forward to? forcing all artist/label catalogues onto flat-rate streaming? along with dumping major-label landfill into the site? drowning out the unique music, reducing it to the status of a marketing bulletpoint?

  12. how about these, perhaps still too chaotic or horn laden, but it's what comes to mind:
  13. Really like this. Obviously (intentionally?) derivative of KLF's "Chill Out", or perhaps a wilful misinterpretation; here, "chill" becomes "hypothermia"
  14. Surgeon put this mix up about an hour ago Reckon this is at least 80% non-42TF
  15. Got my copy out for a listen and just noticed these - more a mini ae-autobiography than about humanoid.. great read! Turns out I went to the same college and did the exact same course as sean! 4 years later though, by which time I was pulling apart and trying to understand ae tracks in the same way he was with electro and acid imports from the states 😏 the library (cds section) there was where I discovered parmegiani and other INA-GRM artists - remember thinking "this is what autechre will sound like before too long".... 😎
  16. for me it's about transcending the origins (i.e. a bunch of machines, devices) of the music to present something greater than the sum of the parts; something that has a "persona" and captures and communicates an extra, human/spiritual dimension that exists beyond and can not be explained by the equipment used a "good" artist (many) might achive that once, or sporadically a "great" artist (g.com etc) does it consistently, for a whole album or sustained period of time a "genius" (aphex?) does all that, while also being strikingly original, without any obvious or dominating precedent hope that's not too pretentious, hah
