(The first?) Monolith interview in (Italian and English) with Dave Monolith, bit crap questions imo. Why not ask about 'Ellen' and 'Victor' and the intended lo-fi Dopplereffekt-ish sound? Or about Rephlex' recent way of releasing or their website being offline, or if the album will be released on Rephlex or somewhere else, etc. So many opportunities!). Anyway, here it is:

http://www.soundwall.it/dave-monolith-dont-call-me-aphex-twin/

 

TL;DR:

 

"He is also prepping his new Monolith album ‘Touch me’.

"Probably in 2014 there will be some new Monolith releases but there are few things that need to be ironed out first. I’ve got quite the backlog of music that could be released but it takes time unfortunately."

hmmm, so the southwest has "got beaches, fields, trees, animals the lot." i don't know if i believe him....

 

I can back up Mr Monolith's claims.

If I could get in contact with him, I'd ask - surely the WATMM Collective could come up with better questions to pose to him than that crap interview.


Or, should we ask Grant Wilson-Claridge to do a AA?

Next up: AA with Dave Monolith at WATMM?

 

would be nice, but i´d rather get Grant on here for a big Q&A. Too bad he thinks watmm is a shithole.

 

Yeah, that's the one slight hurdle to get over... LOL

Lol, nice timing. But yeah, even when he says yes (I'd really appreciate it if you'd try of course), he never is very talkative of Rephlex' decisions so he'd be just naming flowers, shoes and baby's for a week here. But maybe... :)

Just have 'em both at the same time? I don't see Grant having problems with shitholes. He's working in Rephlex headquarters, right? ;D

Sounds like an ace idea, just get the Rephlex posse in for a few days: EOD, Jodey, Wisp (already in here), Dave, Grant, Luke, anybody (well, we can forget about Cylob I reckon :emotawesomepm9: ). Would be absolutely wicked!

 

nd yeah, Grant is sort of an xltronic regular so he's used to crappy places :D

 

But for real, Grant and Luke would be my main choices though. And Joyrex pls, Rephlex subforum/sticky.

We only need Richard... he's all of them anyway, right?

I have a feeling that Grant's AMA on here would be like everytime someone asks him what he meant by that bizarre diatribe of 'why would anyone want to release music' he would say 'aren't you going to ask me about rampart'

A Rephlex subforum will coincide with their revamping of the Rephlex website :emotawesomepm9:

In my opinion it seems sort of sad that the entire Rephlex camp doesn't get more press. I don't know if this is the sort of the approach that they all agreed to when getting involved with them or not, but it bothers me. There is so much talent there, and so much great music. Yet, they barely get press, (definitely no good press), and no exposure, and barely any tours/shows. But these guys make great music. So what is the disconnect here? A conscious effort to remain obscure? Being popular and famous is not all superficial. Acclaim is money is power is more creative freedom. Higher aspirations. They all already have the talent. They just need someone working on the ground to push it forward. Like, you can't blame the fuckers putting on tomorrowland and shit music for being popular if you aren't going to put in the same effort with your brilliant shit. I don't know. My perspective is limited, but underground for the sake of underground seems pointless. I know(think) these guys would be happier making a living off their music than having to work at something else. Even Aphex knew that he had to this to an extent. Is this a tried and failed situation or is this something else? I don't know. If there were ever a time for experimental electronic music to be more widely accepted it would be now.

So did you change your mind or is a revamp confirmed, and you know things we do not?

      Synkretic's first album, skits and stabs worth checking out. Recommended.
    • By ARPA
      Squarepusher’s sonic masterpiece and debut mind-melter of an LP Feed Me Weird Things returns, reissued on double vinyl for the first time since its release on the 3rd of June 1996. Originally released on Rephlex, Aphex Twin himself noted on the sleeve notes of the original that Squarepusher makes “sound like sound never sounded before… Squarepusher gives us the SOUND of SOUND.” Now released on Warp 25 years later, the original album has been remastered from the original DATs and features two extra tracks on a 10 which were first released on the B-side of the Squarepusher Plays… EP and later featured on the original Japanese release of this album. The edition also includes a 16 page booklet with personal photographs, ephemera and notes from Tom Jenkinson, giving us an insight into his early career and into a time of true experimentation and innovation during the mid-90s.
      To say it was ‘ahead of its time’ feels unsatisfactory, and almost chronologically inaccurate - the wild array of styles it blends makes Feed Me Weird Things seem to exist in a time and space continuum all of its own. Maybe there really were UFOs over Leytonstone?
      Using the nascent energy and wildly experimental drum programming of jungle as its main rhythmic driving force, Feed Me Weird Things is celebrated for the way it was able to blend and cross-pollinate genres so effectively. Jazz, instrumental dub, trip-hop, UK hardcore, ambient synthesis, seventies cop funk and even a kind of mangled bossa nova are all tied magically together, transcending into a sound uniquely his own.
      Without delving into the many highlights and moments on the record, it serves as both a snapshot of one of the most vital, experimental periods in the history of UK electronic music and how the young Tom Jenkinson was pushing the boundaries of electronic music, into something well and truly weird, feeding into the canon of electronic music that resonated on into that decade and beyond.

      Mindcolormusic's compilations don't disappoint.

      Now, I was surprised not to find a thread for this since it has been around for a while, a full version is available in the ballacid channel.
       
       
      However I know that a "remastered" version with fixed audio and better sync amongst other things was available on the channel 
      https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCToSWHTqAl7tNezcRGYc2ng
      at the address youtu.be/gfc_xp113Oo until it was privated sometime during the last year.
      I guess this thread is for discussing the vid but also for letting people know if the remastered version ever becomes available again..
