I think i remember dave getting signed to mu at one point. if anyone remembers the mu forum (rip) , signed artists to mu, used to be in orange if they had a forum account, and people assumed he was gona have his first release on there but then the rephlex download shop opened and volume 1 was released

Interesting, thanks for sharing this since I’ve never heard of such possibility. All I’ve heard is that Mu was interested of Steinvord. Seems that they chose the legendary status of Rephlex over the functionality of Mu, but how did it work out in the end. Well Venetian Snares knew better. Wasn’t Rephlex interested in Aaron or have I been severely trolled?

 

See Herr Jan, not so far-fetched idea. :biggrin:

Hehe, so it seems! Didn't knew about that tidbit :) I'd really wouldn't complain if it did come out Planet Mu, it's a great well-run label and it will get a proper release with them on multiple formats.

 

Not sure about Rephlex and Aaron Funk, I don't think they were on it actually. They did pass on Boards Of Canada, if I'm correct Richard regretted that afterwards, Grant not so much :)

I remember Mike dropped Monolith's "Farewell Frenchman" in his Electronic Explorations mix before it came out. I could have sworn he said something like "forthcoming on Planet Mu" when the mix was posted, although now the tracklist mentions Rephlex.

 

MORE Monolith please!!!

I seem to remember Winter In The Belly Of A Snake was mooted to come out on Rephlex around the time, but I don't know what happened.

If he won't release it himself (like Aleksi Perala or Jodey Kendrick) it'll come out on other good labels I'm sure. I'd say Planet Mu has become pretty different from Rephlex type stuff, I was thinking more about WeMe, Signals, etc. (the other labels in the braindance label thread basically :)). I'm mostly curious about the bandcamp page Monolith was trying to start up, must be publicised soon I hope!

 

I was lucky enough to see Monolith live in Amsterdam at the last official Rephlex "tour" (a couple of dates in Europe in 2010 with Bogdan, EDMX, Monolith and Ceephax, in the UK with Vibert too I think), a lot of good videos of that gig are also on YT, and someone recorded the whole gig even! Some really good stuff in there too :)

Damn, I forgot how good Monolith was. It's not the same if it's not Rephlex putting it out. We need to get Grant and Richard back with Rephlex, or something else, they always spot the best up and coming braindancers. This just can't end.

Yup. Aaron's stuff was also being shopped around Warp at the time too, but he wanted to stay with Mu.

Hope the image on the WeMe page is a quick mockup and they recreate it better for the final product.

agreed. i kinda like the block colours, but the OG art def benefited from having a longer trail.

Her's the reply I got from Fred after pointing out some aesthetic blunders in the new artwork:

 

"It's a point of view...

but not Dave's"

      i want to share a record i discovered today, called Terra Ferma, by X-Asp and released on Rephlex.
      it's kind of unknown and hard to find, though there are some vinyl to be sold on discogs, but i instantly loved it.
       
      i get to discover new artists pretty much everyday, but this one turned out to be special, because it has a combination of charming spacey pads and melodies with often complex, raw drum programming. as simple as that. this made me feel like when i first listened to steve pictkon's stasis or black dog's bytes (though not establishing a comparison here).
       
      it's very hard to find samples and youtube has nothing, but you can listen two of the tracks here:
      Terra Ferma *2
      http://soundcloud.com/user4787471/x-asp-terra-ferma-02-terra-ferma-x2
       
      and my favorite Cloud bass
      http://soundcloud.com/user4787471/x-asp-terra-ferma-07-cloud-bass
       
      There is also a µ-Ziq remix of the track Terra Ferma.
       
      post here if you knew it already and if not, hope you enjoy!

      The clear vinyl version is already gone from Bandcamp, but there will be more - on Bleep. You know what to do.

      Squarepusher’s sonic masterpiece and debut mind-melter of an LP Feed Me Weird Things returns, reissued on double vinyl for the first time since its release on the 3rd of June 1996. Originally released on Rephlex, Aphex Twin himself noted on the sleeve notes of the original that Squarepusher makes “sound like sound never sounded before… Squarepusher gives us the SOUND of SOUND.” Now released on Warp 25 years later, the original album has been remastered from the original DATs and features two extra tracks on a 10 which were first released on the B-side of the Squarepusher Plays… EP and later featured on the original Japanese release of this album. The edition also includes a 16 page booklet with personal photographs, ephemera and notes from Tom Jenkinson, giving us an insight into his early career and into a time of true experimentation and innovation during the mid-90s.
      To say it was ‘ahead of its time’ feels unsatisfactory, and almost chronologically inaccurate - the wild array of styles it blends makes Feed Me Weird Things seem to exist in a time and space continuum all of its own. Maybe there really were UFOs over Leytonstone?
      Using the nascent energy and wildly experimental drum programming of jungle as its main rhythmic driving force, Feed Me Weird Things is celebrated for the way it was able to blend and cross-pollinate genres so effectively. Jazz, instrumental dub, trip-hop, UK hardcore, ambient synthesis, seventies cop funk and even a kind of mangled bossa nova are all tied magically together, transcending into a sound uniquely his own.
      Without delving into the many highlights and moments on the record, it serves as both a snapshot of one of the most vital, experimental periods in the history of UK electronic music and how the young Tom Jenkinson was pushing the boundaries of electronic music, into something well and truly weird, feeding into the canon of electronic music that resonated on into that decade and beyond.
