  1. Any update on Monolith? is he really gone forever?
  2. Anyone has any news on Dave monolith? did he really just drop off the radar steinvord style? He was pretty active back then, even doing live shows, why would you suddenly stop?
  3. He said that after hello everything he was officially not using the amen break ever again. I reckon he used it somewhere tho.. I don't believe you can resist not slicing up an amen for so much time! There's some great freak outs and he's obviously still a v clever sausage but the whole thing sounds so fucking brittle and there're a lot of horrid, cheesy melodies wafting about on it. I think he gets unfair amount of hate lately but I can't help but agree with this. There's something off with the production, at least to my ears. Some of the tracks literally hurt my eardrums somehow specially with my phones. The question is: Did he want the album to sound like this in purpose or not? is it our fault and we are missing something, or is it objectively not properly mixed? who can even judge this? I just wonder how go plastic sounds so good in the clean, digital sense (and I think we all can agree on this being a fact) and still so many years later it sounds amazing and maintains that powerful sound, whereas this one sounds as you described it.
  4. It sounds more like 192kbps, it's well encoded with joint stereo and noticeable artifacts are rare How is that even possible? I can easily notice 96 from 128 from 192. 192 to 320 is harder but definitely audible with good gear and good ears. It's very strange to me how 96kbps could trick you into being as high as 192, now im tempted to check it out but feel bad about it. I will wait for the real thing. It's been a while since I got a physical copy of something. Hopefully it's easy to find when I go back to London. Funny how the day I left for a week all these aphex twin ads start showing up all over the place.
  5. I agree with you, however, I go from thinking that into the opposite, for instance certain moments in "untitled 9", the melodies are awesome, the acid lines, the beat too... there is a certain magic there, maybe a different type of magic, if they aren't the same person after all it feels different, and something feels off in our brains if we are focusing in expecting he is RDJ, squarepusher or someone else known. Heorge Garrison was him. It was pretty close to Steinvord imo. EDIT: When I asked him, he said he has a lot of other aliases. Heorge garrison is this guy: https://plus.google.com/+johncaulfieldvalganon_JCV The initial tracks from the wheatspin soundcloud which then got into the HG bandcamp had this google profile linked since the beginning. He just adds "location: spain" and so on to fool the public into thinking he is steinvord, probably as a reference/joke. Both the steinvord and heorge garrison tracks are pretty cool but clearly isn't the same output, at least to me. These tracks most likely took a couple of years to complete so more like 15 to 16 when he started.. pretty crazy, just to compare what tracks one was doing at that age vs these ones lol I can see why they signed him. Who else does this style of music out there? Few can pull it off to create decent tracks. Unfortunately we will not get a proper release and are stuck with the low bitrate myspace rips. I think about how it's been like 10 years... he must be sitting on a goldmine of unreleased tracks at this point. In any case he can't be bothered to get anything released anymore. Maybe he has a lot of money and doesn't need the extra that gigs and records could bring him, maybe he just doesn't care, who knows. For whatever reason he decided to stay anonymous and we must respect that.
  6. Im not paying these prices unless im guaranteed unreleased tracks, top notch sound engineering and the special guest being steinvord and the tuss doing a live dj set.
  7. I wonder what's next for Tom once he's done touring these for the rest of the year. 2019 may be the time for some new tunes. Put in on a mega link or something and someone will.
  8. I reckon I did read in some interview once how they used way more sampling than most people believe (as they think it's all generated with complex algorithms and whatnot)
  9. Universal Indicator Red has as cat# TR 606 I wonder what "ALL Rephlex mate" means. It will include other artists that aren't afx? TR 606 isn't even confirmed that it was Rich isn't it? I reckon it was rumored it was a collab with Mike, maybe even Grant was involved. I would like love to see all the Rephlex discography on the shop, but since Rephlex artists now own the copyright of their music, they would need to ask every single person that was part of Rephlex, but it would be worth it as that site gets a lot of traffic and having it all there nicely ordered it's better than scattered across a ton of websites, and the artists would be able to make some revenue, again since Aphex Twin's site is going to get a lot more traffic than individual bandcamps set by each Rephlex artist. Or maybe a separate rephlex.warp.net site? With some unreleased stuff and so on. There were so many good records, I was just listening to Journey by TGP and feeling nostalgic. That was a nice song. I wonder where these guys are nowadays.
  10. its all the same track homie. We need a release from 0:00 - 6:53 I think it sounds like Tuss/Syro outtake, good track.
  11. Great post, but surprised you didn't add Steinvord. Too bad he only released one record. Considering those tracks were released in 2008 in myspace I wonder if it would be 3rd generation or current. And what about that Plusten guy? or was that JK too?
  12. I really hope we get some official(or soundcloud) releases of these tracks. This is awesome. That's a great remix, and also the bit at the end on "untitled" that sounds like some sort of Tuss/Syro outtake.
  13. I saw the other thread got closed. Anyway, I saw this when I was checking out the new Last.fm layout: http://www.last.fm/music/Steinvord/+images/f0fa0393d5dc498bc92ad30083a7e155 This is proof this guy is trying to impersonate other people. I mean why would you upload your picture in someone's else profile? What's the deal with this guy. Im convinced now he's the guy selling other peoples tracks over bandcamp.
  14. That screenshot of the old Rephlex website is such a throwback. I remember my surprise when they uploaded 1 track, and to think in the future we would get 250 tracks.
