❤️ Love this as much as VLR's two afx mix sets. Neat mix!

Also similar megamixes for Plaid, Boards Of Canada and Autechre on his sc account but can't be arsed to crosspost them.

A few too many sample and holds to be a "mix" to me but good track selection. Not hating I'm just a dinosaur that learned mixing in the 20th century.

After having tried beat mixing aphex tunes on vinyl, I am happy to admit that a digital mix is quite satisfactory on this occasion 🙂

Same goes for the autechre mix (which I am listening to now) - the style of music lends itself to digital blending due to the tracks constantly evolving.  You need to reign them in somehow! Vinyl mixing of autechre is fine if you know the tracks inside out and are confident when you can get the transitions to work out... but it is hard going

... while these mixes & VLR's are dope gateways into, & compendiums of, these artists' work , iThink® that bc Afx , ae , & drexciya make such strong tunage - that to mix just their own trax into a mix is kinda doomed 2 fail coz the mix becomes too meaty.  & w/o enough cheese , bread or other flavours 2 carry the heft of these artists , or 2 provide contrast & balance in a mix , it sounds & feelz like a technical exercise rather than a journey, imho.

i disagree.. i think Ae and Afx catalogs are so far ranging in styles that mixes i have enjoyed do tend to journey through their tracks nicely

afx yeah. sure he has his signature moves, but almost every album/ep sounds like it could have been made by a different artist, with ae, you kinda know what you're getting.

(that isn't a slight against ae, btw. they've definitely had the stronger output of the two artists these last few years)

      Gost Zvuk continues its journey to the depth of today’s Russia experimental music scene with the debut EP from ИНФХ, yet another emerging artist from country’s capital Moscow. Young muscovite prefers to work on the margins of popular electronic music genres, using the complex broken rhythmical architecture to create his own kind of introverted club tracks for highly observant and thoughtful listeners. The resulting music is an ever-changing, multifaceted and polychromatic living organism with a constantly mutating structure — a truly unique piece of art that should not be overlooked.
       
      ГОСТ012: ИНФХ "Fences of Metal" is already available at Hard Wax, "Ace, smartly stepping IDM EP". Coming to all worldwide shops tomorrow.

      Been having fun with the weeklybeats initiative this year, pimping old projects and what not and have collected a few braindancy submissions + other stuff in a small ep on my bandcamp page. Check it here;

      Oy Watmm massive,

      I've put up an ep on my bandcamp page from which most tracks were started during daily commuting between my house and school a few years ago. A pattern loop here, 4 patterns there, multiple ideas and try-outs left to marinate on my laptop harddisk for use in more inspired times.

      Last year my mate Yann (waveshaper.12r.org) has been sending me samples of his analoque drumkits to create demo's for him. The perfect excuse to dig up some of these old ideas and bring in some fresh sounds / finish them off.

      Check the ep here: http://plugexpert.bandcamp.com/album/electra-ep

      Example track:
