Untilted

Recommended Posts

I listened to this for the first time too for the first time in years and was really taken by how dry and contained it was compared to the new stuff . Structures were almost skeletal but everything sounds so deliberate . Really enjoyed it and still is probably my most listened to Ae album

Correct.

 

Shit, feels like ages ago. But it still has arguably the most aggressive percussion of any release. I still remember that transition in LCC when the track starts to break from the drum loop and goes full-on attack mode just before it relaxes into that slow, old school hip hop style beat and the pads kick in. How tf they managed to sequence that is incredible.

there are definitely some great ideas here, but a lot of these tracks are overly indulgent and should have been trimmed down. personally I would have preferred it if they had honed this into a nice focused ep. there's just too much aimless jamming here for my taste. Untilted is good, it's just obviously not on the same level as Cavity Job.

I remember some breakcore producer (Venetian Snares probably) saying this is one of their favourite albums. And I don't wonder because the drum programming is just fucking incredible.

 

Also generally it has that feel like being done on an old school tracker with the minute details all manually worked in. The dryness and crunchiness just adds to the feeling.

autechre are always on point, they were just especially on point in the confield-draft 7.30-untilted era.

hey--if sprawling, repetitive jams like 'sublimit' are your thing, that's great. personally though I miss when they made tracks that actually change over time. but realistically, I guess its unfair to expect them to keep making masterpieces of the level of Lego Feet.
