Sweet. Do more Plz. It's interesting to have near replicas but done with recent tech.

That said, Aphex said he also remade this album right? Makes me wonder if he did what you did here, or if it is a reinterpretation kinda thing.

I think he said he's tried to go back in style and method a few times but felt it wasn't the same.

huh, I'd like to see what all he's said. I mean, it was never going to be the same I think since his melody sense has become much more funk-minded. That said, it leads to stuff like: 

which honestly I like just as much as his early 90s stuff. If he made an album full of similar tracks, I think it would be a worthy successor to SAW 1. He's also have spent a lot more time in that style so he would put out even better stuff in that style.

really old interview from I want to say about 2009 or so. I'll try to find it. He also mentioned it somewhere in his user18081971 comments... or maybe aphex twin main account... somewhere.

A little project I've been working on in between writing my own stuff.

I've always been fascinated with SAW 85-92 and how it was created, as there's not a whole lot of info about it on the internet.

I thought it would be a fun challenge to try to recreate some of the tracks to maybe find out myself, through trial an error, how some of it was made.

 

 

Impressive! Now I need that Valhalla verb too lol
