"Obscure" Rephlex

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about starting this thread for ages now. Rephlex is, at least in the grand scheme of things, quite a leftfield electronic music label. I remember especially becoming obsessed after listening to the Rephlexions compilation. It's mysterious and reclusive attributes obviously go hand-in-hand with the ways of it's artists. That said, I've quenched many of my questions and overall curiosity over the years regarding the stories and tidbits behind the "main" artists of the label: AFX, Vibert, Cylob, μ-Ziq, DMX Krew, Ceephax, Global Goon, Wisp, Bogdan Raczynski, Aleksi Perälä, etc.

 

Still, there's quite a few releases and signings that still puzzle me:

  • Whatever happened to Sam and Valley? I suppose their signing coincided with Rephlex touring Japan in 98'?
  • Whatever happened to the Gentle People?
  • Anyone every listen to the J.P. Buckle LP? The track of his on Rephlexions was an unexpected earworm after I heard it.
  • Does anyone actually own this release? The one called 100% that consists of mailbox recordings.
  • Anyone here manage to acquire all of the Universal Indicator releases?
  • Freakwincey - I Farted...well to that I must ask why? Why the farting?
  • Who is Dave Nicholls, aka P.P. Roy? He had a mix recently posted and I recall reading that he was the one who found the original copy of Black Devil Disco Club. Other than that, I'm only aware of the two releases at Rephlex. Also, that album cover, it's in that special category of wtf!? that leaves me intrigued everytime I see it.

With these potentially being answered, I might risk killing whatever mystery and intrigue Rephlex holds in my mind, but what the hell. It's all about the music, right? I also figure this thread could serve as a general discussion of all the one-off artists who been on the label, many of which I have not listened to. I'd love any recommendations of underrated Rephlex releases. I know many watmmers have more thoroughly browsed the catalog than I have.

if you are talking about jp buckle "flying lo-fi" or something like that, I had it on cd back in the day. I think the cover had a urinal, and it was a pretty infectious album.

Hey, thanks for reminding me of the Gentle People. I did not know there were remix compilations out there until I just googled now.

I had a feeling I was a easy peasy google search away from figuring out this question...but I'm glad I asked simply because of the pic you posted. You could of made a much warranted snarky comment instead. Thank you LUDD for your awesome response.

 

Besides your soundcloud tracks I'm now listening to this brilliant mix http://forum.watmm.c...4-thidiot-live/ :happy:

I think, aesthetically speaking at least, Pierre Bastien is probably the most fascinating artist on Rephlex by many many miles.

Well I liked Cylobotnia even if noone else did.

 

And the two Vibert / Simmonds albums are ace.
