Steinvord = Bolthosbn = Usain Bolt

In my books cat212 goes to the top releases this planet carries. Such a dope EP. 5 tracks I'll never get tired of. To this day still bums me that Rephlex didn't/couldn't release the rumored LP.

Saw that too, probably worth posting here: http://forum.watmm.c...ichard-d-james/

 

I never know how to fully react to the "press" bringing up debates and speculation, other than it won't change anything really. WATMM is always all over this beforehand anyway.

 

Pitchfork, BBC6, etc all reported on the "new Aphex album on Warp" and it was back to normal immediately after. The only recent instance (I can think of) where an artist "came out" from behind a moniker after press speculation was the tacky "Burial is Fatboy Slim or Aphex" nonsense years back that The Sun stirred up.

The truth is that this music could be made by virtually anyone with some talent, from a previously unheard of 16-year-old...

 

Yeah, right.

That had better not be the real tracklist. only two new tracks? and honestly, maelstrom? that's the worst of all of the steinvord tunes.

take a listen (sorry if its kinda crappy), damn so cool... and yeah well we can't be sure who's really Steinvord. The only info we can confirm is that he makes music with his fucking computer, lol

Here is how you find out if it sounds like Aphex. Play it for a hardcore Aphex fan that isn't into message board speculation and could give a fuck less about researching artist. Also, not knowing of Steinvord is pretty important. Play some of his very Aphexish tracks and say "Hey this is the new shit from Aphex, what do you think". Analyze response. I for one thought Aphex the second I heard it a couple of years back on Myspace. Unless someone comes out and strait up says it, we can never know who the hell it really is.

who's to say that they're new. i do hope so, but they might just be one of his untitled (titled) tracks.

stop you're depressing me. and yeah maelstrom is my least favored of the bunch, it may be the shitty quality though. i mean, it will sound much much better in the release, i'm sure, but it's too crazy for my state of mind lately

wishful thinking from WATMM as usual, I doubt it's Afx or a Squarepusher/Afx collab, someone that really likes Afx/Squarepusher yeah but I don't think it's either of them...

 

 

regardless, I look forward to getting the release on vinyl/finally getting mitts on decent bitrate files :music:

pretty sure that Rephlex has no objection to releasing tracks untitled, so they are probably new, but I guess I won't mind horribly if one of them is untitled 97. It's the one myspace tune I really do want on vinyl.

      Seeing as he was just hanging out with Autechre, maybe they told him something.

      Who isn't Steinvord?
       
      On Soundcloud, RDJ stated that he himself is not Steinvord. He also stated that he does not even know Steinvord's identity and only Grant does. I know that the identity of Steinvord is intended to be a secret, and even if such a wild guess that Steinvord is Skrillex were true, that it would be denied. Proving that Steinvord is Skrillex is not the point of this topic.
       
      Recently, John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers has been making acid house, which demonstrates that an accomplished musician in one genre can also work in a different genre. Let that stand as exhibit A.
       
      Skrillex has stated that he was a fan of Aphex, and Aphex retorted in somewhat a lukewarm fashion in a remark. Exhibit B.

      Skrillex has the technical equipment and meticulous editing capability and focus needed to arrange music that fits tightly into the genre he is marketed in. It seems unnatural to have that much skill and no desire to experiment outside of such a tight range. Is he not human? Does he not admire the same music 'we' admire? Couldn't he whip out a DNB banger if he was in the mood?
       
      My point in creating this topic was not to make you say "hm wow maybe..." but rather, I want to collect as much proof as possible that Steinvord is NOT Skrillex. So, basically... prove he's not.
       
      All due respect to protohuman sensibilities in advance.
