Rephlex recent CAT# logic

Recommended Posts

Our/my wish of a Rephlex subforum is Grant'ed so let's start off with this bit of info for the lurkers that would otherwise be overlooked by many, I think. Already posted it in the AP Musik thread but this won't hurt I guess.


Anyway, for logic behind Rephlex' labelless albums, it's all in the barcode:

6669080 = rx barcode prefix
202 = cat number
2 = bpi format code (cd=2, 12"=6 etc)
1 = numerical check digit

So the Rephlex cat. nr's are:

239: apmusik colundi sequence (?)

236-238: ?

235: bochum welt good programs
235 : d'arcangelo, audiovisual design
234: apmusik mu3

227-233: ?

226: edm b2
225: edm a2

223-224: ?

222: photodementia fig. 04 CD/LP
221: ultrademon seapunk
220 : eod's volume 2
219 : eod's volume 1
218: ultrademon step into liquid ep
217: photodementia fig. 03 lp
216 : monolith's welcome
215: pierre bastien machinations
214: zwischenwelt
213: mental union 2cd
212: steinvord

I just look for "Distributed by SRD" on the spine or cover. Yeah I hope they sort this labellessshit out soon. A lot of music journalists aren't so clever.

first of all: thanks.


as i got some time to finally sort my digital music collection in a ultra OCD-esque way, this is very helpful.


now i realise, i can put cat-numbers to the analord series. i found and image of analord 07 with cat number "6669080-169-65".

if i name the releases in ascending order, "Analord 11" will get [cat 173], but "Chosen Lords" already gets (cat 173].


any idea concerning my serious first-world problem?



Edit: it's probably the same as with macc&dgohn-same shit saaink. single and album both got [cat209]

analord 11 = CAT172 (analord09 is cat171 and so on)

analord 10 = CAT173 the same cat# as chosen lords because that vinyl came with empty sleeves to pack all the 12" analords together .. and later as single picture disc vinyl too .. also this analord release contains tracks listed as Aphex Twin tracks (the first and last tracks of Chosen Lords)

      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.

      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 
      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..
