  1. he dedicated it to madlib and egon but not Alain Goraguer? Smh.. gotta respect the foundations you're building on. Im referring to the composer of planete sauvage who wrote the piano line that was sampled in the quasimoto track, then again sampled (very prominently) here. also.. from a production soundpoint this track is a bit lazy, almost like something an anonymous producer would pull out for a rap album. And it doesnt do anything interesting or new with that sample.
  2. For context i was only talking about the collaborations from youre dead. Havent had a chance to hear this new album, maybe it will flow better. On another note, I dont think any mods have posted in this thread but if any see, please change title to Flying Lotus - Flamagra
  3. +1. Part of what made los angeles such a great album is it was all his world. The features on there (laura darlington and gonjasufi) sounded like they were inhabiting his track rather than the other way around. Collaborations like the Kendrick track on Youre Dead for example really break the flow for me, despite being good as a standalone track
  4. I fall in the mixed-bag camp on this one. It definitely has its standout moments but it is a bit scattershot on the whole. My favorite bits> etchogon knife sharpening, the woody sounds in iris and elmo, and the fact that this video exists: but it also has some of my least favorite tracks theyve released in pce and rew
  5. Been on binge listen of his music (all aliases) lately. Found an unreleased track that i somehow missed, apparently it was a soundcloud upload a bit before For Those of You came out. It sounds very much like gas/volfgang voigt, which is maybe why it didnt make it on that album (also the 15m runtime). But its some really delicious textures to get lost in. Also I would be remiss not to shout out (again) his 24 hours from culture mix. Almost 1hr of amazing and mostly unreleased ambient. I listen to like an album as such.
  6. Yes @ subject, but the style of these over-produced yt documentaries really irks me: The generic building piano muzak, timed word art emphasizing the narrators points, quick cuts every second. I appreciate that its well researched, but then they just drown that effort in buzzfeed style tropes
  7. Its probably been mentioned, but soundcloud embeds are quite big (they are half of my screen tall) and they take ~half a second to load, which distracting when you are scrolling and they cause the page to jump
  8. i had to listen to this track twice in a row its too good and.. not youtube but you can play it https://www.casadehaiku.space/
  9. Vagabond is a really great film; its on mubi right now along as part of their Agnes Varda retrospective. As with her documentary shorts, Varda was masterful at pacing and creating a compelling narrative from a realistic subject. Also, even though they are different, the format of this film must have influenced Twin Peaks..
  10. I imagine its hard to find official aphex merch in senegal.. The shirts for the recent shows were 50% awesome, basic logos and such, with exclusive colors for the various shows. i dont think any of the shirts you linked are cooler than the official stuff but i do agree, in general, that unoficial merch has its place and can be great..
  11. Gracias diatoms, I had an amazing time there, as I'm sure many did, being the first time aphex has ever played in latin america. ((Sorry for making fun of your centered text earlier btw. Do you!!)) The bit you mention (Tha live version) was particularly special as it is a slower track so people could look at each other, and also to see the visuals which were based on mexican pop culture and politics. Futobolistas, Santo (luchador), Cantinflas, Diego Luna, Cuaron+Yalitzi (of the film Roma), And then the way he transitioned out was perfect: It strobed an image of 'mexico will not pay' (for trumps wall obvi) and the crowd went nuts right as he transitioned into more hardcore beats.
  12. Same! I hiked up a mountain last weekend, and the whole way up i had the melody from Its Your Bones repeating in my head. That back and forth cadence of the guitar line fit perfectly in line with my stride. And the vocal where he goes an octvave higher kept looping in my head, like being stuck in your head but in a good way. I also had that 'Feeling' (hah) with a Mineral Love though.. where his melodies kept looping in my head. Did you like that album too? I already love this album.
