I was pointing out a couple of tracks that to my ears cannot have been made by copy cats.

Ohhhh ok that makes sense. Would you agree though that the official released stuff sounds more like Tom, and all the unreleased stuff sounds more like Richard?

 

That was my theory on it, official release = Tom, Untitled/myspace stuff = Rich..

 

This other untitled one is without a doubt RDJ. I think.

Untitled 9 sounds more AFX than AFX, if it's another clone like that guy that makes Tuss copycats for Rephlex then well done, you're the first person to make a legit Aphex track that could fool the most cynic listener.

 

I was thinking of Photodementia that was one of the new Rephlex guys not Steinvord. I still think it's a "for fun" Squarepusher/AFX collab.

Yeah, that one sounds like RDJ. Especially the fucking arpeggios on the 808, like he does 28 seconds into this one:

Yeah it's very similar to the drop in "my fucking sound".

 

The rooster cowbell is something I could only see RDJ doing, it's those little touches.

The section at 2:20 of that untitled track is darn near identical to ... hmm can't remember now - Meltphace 6 is it ?

Yep, about 2 minutes in:

 

The rooster cowbell

 

Haha, you are absolutely right! Didn't think of that before.

Pretty damning evidence if you ask me. I wonder why anyone is skeptical?

ability to imitate is hardly an evidence

 

like, seriously, it probably is rdj but it can't be proven just with the fact that it kinda sorta sounds like he's ripping himself off.

I'm gonna predict once more that the first two slower ones are all RDJ, the third super fast one is either all TRJ or RDJ/TRJ and the last two super fast ones are, obviously, all TRJ. I predict they were recorded BEFORE "Do You Know Squarepusher", but either just before or just after Go Plastic, and definitely just after or during Drukqs.

 

Hey my guesses are yours exactly! After a couple of listens I came up with it and it didn't move since then. I also agree it's harder to tell for the third track but a lot of it sounds TJ to me (acid from the beginning, the bass, break....)

Absolutely, I've come to that final conclusion too. He does do simpler constructions of tracks, and since RDJ RARELY has anything even remotely to do with 'amen', it seems unlikely that it would have much to do with him. Also, check the stereo width of the tracks, RDJ's tend to be more mono with the drums a little to the left, Tom's are generally really wide and spaced out, neither better than the other, just different ways imaging the fields that lends a lot to guessing who's is who's.

 

 

imo.

it sounds like steinvord is either a collaborative project, or is at least influenced by a few different sources.

 

and i'd bet it all that RDJ knows exactly who's involved, since after a little digging i've determined that Rephlex is in fact, his label.

Yeah, it's funny how we're going through all this again. Nice fun summation of sentiment skibby.

I remember a younger [and naiver] me reading the list of all the artists on the inside of the Caustic Window album and assumed they were all RDJ alias' :emb:

Read the r… oh. That’s pretty good actually. What you did there. Those are my guesses too.

Because I'm just skeptical. I listen to The Tuss, and it's obvious it's Aphex. But Steinvord is weird. It doesn't feel as complete as I've come to expect from either Aphex or Square. The styles though are similar. So, I'm just going to say idk, and I'm fine with that.

Does anyone here listen to both Aphex AND Squarepusher music equal amounts? Or do most favour one over the other?

 

 

 

 

 

This could be the problem.

My RDJ:TJ ratio is 68 percent RDJ and 32 percent TJ.

OK, I changed my mind. I believe this is RDJ, the stuff by JK, although nice, is not on this level. If it really is by JK, why isn't his other stuff as good? It lacks a certain fingerspitzengefühl that is abundant here.

 

Edit: Changed my mind again, too sloppy to be a solo RDJ thang, I don't know who the hell is behind this, but it's someone good.
