SOPHIE - BIPP (Autechre Mx)

RIP

In the remix blurb on they mention "These 3 minutes & 33 seconds of SOPHIE remixed by Autechre have had a long winding path to fruition. A recording of Autechre live, at a Numbers event in Glasgow back in 2005, first inspired SOPHIE to source the equipment used to craft new music including BIPP, LEMONADE & more."

And Interestingly enough in Rhianna tweet about Sophie's passing she posted a picture of Sophie showing her something on one of the Elektron machines. 

 It's funny to think about that musical connection.

Reminds me of previous remixes such as both of the perfect tracks from Splitrmx12 or Mari Hamada's Aire. Repetitive/catchy structures while very minimalist although creative beat/synth variations are heard. I love how the ambience is just slightly heard only in few moments. It is an approach that i was not used to, and brought back my best 2000's memories. Even though the beat is not very fast or aggressive, it is very complex for me in terms of groove

Wow! I love it. I wish the boys made accessible stuff like this more often. Reminds me of - Autechre Play Weissensee Against Im Glück (Original Composition by Neu!)

No one mentioned footwork. This remix is definitely AE's take on footwork.

I get the footwork flavour, but footwork didn't invent this type of rhythmic busy- and jumpy- ness, it merely sped it up from its Chicago ghettodance roots

100% nonsense ^

 

With each listen this track cements itself further  into easily  being the best track of 2021 

 

 

It's  simply excellent

the rmx is ayte but that ableton sound is all over it :facepalm:

honestly curious if you could expand on this. i've thought the same about some tunes i've heard before but didn't notice it on this one in particular.

unless you're just shitposting :nyan: in which case feel free to ignore and facepalm me 😄

we always joke about how their music sounds too maxmsp, that they need some analog love and now that they’ve ported the track’s channels to ableton for a rmx i though it’s time to shitpost about ableton now i guess

Sean mention they turn all their system into Live for the remix and he didn't like it (the Live system, not the remix).

If they have something such their own hardcore player that they have build for decades why not use it for the remix?

basically tracks the main points of SOPHIE's career with some interesting tidbits sprinkled throughout, bookended by BIPP ofc. don't think i'd ever heard that Vince Staples track. shit's fuckin massive.

Pretty fiery beat for Vince Staples, unfortunately no instrumental, but there's a separate demo (before adding hats and the trap alike)

There's a couple of SOPHIE beats on that album, both are bangers.

Sophie sounds like Otto von Schirach made by someone 10 years younger. Autechre just removed all fx and showed what these tracks are actually made from which is interesting

Yeah, interesting because 1) it still works 2) it straight up sounds like mid 80s electro pop a la Shannon, which judging by Autechre's DJ sets is right up their alley. In a weird way I read this as a big compliment.

This remix makes me want to hear an Autechre electro album, maybe more 90s and less math.

that mix they did  few years ago is a pretty rockin classic electro/hip hop survey of stuff they're into. i forget what it was no though.. but it's seamless mixing has all the classics and more
