Celebrate the 20th anniversary of Incunabula with an Ae megamix

Recommended Posts

Hell yeah, today 20 years ago, our everyday heroes Autechre released their sound and genre defining debut album Incunabula. A good chance to reminisce over 20+ years of constant evolution in sound and style. The next in the Single Source Publishing mix series is about to begin:

Thank you very much for the positive feedback so far. Happy you enjoy the mix.


In regards to a download link I am going to check my Soundcloud account if there's enough space left for an upload of the set. I let you know.


Until then enjoy the stream of memories on Mixcloud.

Hahaha how the fuck did you manage to mix Ae with Ae. This must have been a pain in the ass to mix.


Actually I was surprised how natural some of the transitions flew (like Under BOAC / Gantz Graf / PCe.freeze.2.8i / Surripere or Bladelores / Plays Weissensee). Though there was a lot of EQ knob twiddling and timing to be done. And I did quite a few re-recordings because I wanted it to be just perfect.


I think the µ-Ziq anniversary mix I did was more pain in the ass than Autechre because µ-Ziq has so many melodies, he gives you quite a hard time to find a transition without interfering harmonies.


This said I guess it took me about 25-30 hours to complete the mix incl. scanning of my record collection for the tracks I wanted, figuring out a dynamics concept, working out the transitions, recording, re-recording and finishing.

It was great fun though because this work always brings me back to records I haven't listened to for a while and it let's be get to know the tracks from a different perspective.

Is there any way to download it for listening on the go?


This site grabs files off Mixcloud in their original quality.



Damn...I can download anything from the mixcloud from now on... awesome!


@BB: currently downloading your mix. process is mighty simple, but speed is pretty low, tbh.

"Laughing Quarter" at 33rpm-->"Pen Expers"-->"Skin Up"=utter brilliance. You, sir, are a genius.


Thanks so much for this!

      I brought up this thought in the dedicAtEd thread for Untilted but I think it is an interesting enough idea generally speaking. Here's the alternate order I came up with for their 2005 offering, Fermium is not removed because I dislike the song but because it feels like the odd one out. This is just my first attempt at this and I don't think I have a better sequence than S and R (fucking love this album the way it is as it is), but it is fun to try rejigger things a bit and see if there are some nice ways of changing the sequencing, just for fun

      1. LCC
      2. The Trees
      3. Augmatic Disport
      4. Ipacial Section
      5. Iera
      6. Pro Radii
      7. Sublimit

      Here's what auxien said about this new order/removing Fermium:

      "hm, not sure about Fermium on its own, feels naked like that. but it is a little bit of an odd one out on the album perhaps, so i see the case there. 
      random thoughts listening to this tracklisting:
      LCC as opener and Sublimit as closer is necessary, good work on not trying to fuck with that not sure about The Trees as track 2, feels a little too close in shape to LCC Ipacial into Iera is fucking great Iera into Pro Radii works pretty well Pro Radii into Sublimit works pretty well too  overall not as offensive as i'd expected trying to tweak what's pretty close to a perfect album. may see about doing an alternate tracklist of my own"
