APHEX TWIN - SYRO

Recommended Posts

Guest bitroast

 

 

 

 

 

I'm thinking of pre-ordering Syro through iTunes. I've been doing it for more than year for all my digital purchases. It's cool that iTunes download the tracks automaticaly to all your devices. And they're always in the cloud.

 

Could someone give me a reason why I should do it through blerp? I don't care about physical media, sorry.

Just out the bottle under the seat and let it roll.

Because 24bit wav

IF you care about audio at that quality... if you think iTunes audio sounds good enough, order via iTunes. That's what I did. I actually ordered the physical via Amazon.

not interested in the limited edition?

Depends on if I get a raffle ticket or not - you do know you DON'T have to purchase from Bleep to enter, right?

 

Honestly, if it wasn't for the obnoxious shipping costs, I'd go for the Japanese CD - that's the complete set, IMO.

There was a mention earlier that japanese vinyl had bonus track. Was that miscommunication or legit?

maybe the answer lies within this interview also dont want to exaggerate but i think we should honor steve beckett a little bit more.

thx steve beckett for signing this sick artists and keeping Warp alive.Amen break.

 

 

Lol yeah not being pushy asking for new album is prob their way of being respectful to artist. It was like watmm was on brink of declaring war against warp a few pages back for not demanding new aphex material :p

it'll be a miscommunication. to my knowledge, no Warp Records release on vinyl has ever had a japan exclusive track on the vinyl.

yep it'll come with a download code, and it will be for MP3, as has been the case on Warp Records releases for quite some time now.

 

there will also be a separate download waiting for you on your Bleep account, which will be MP3.

 

no WAV or FLAC download included, since Bleep decided they didn't want to cover costs for bandwidth on FLAC and WAV downloads as freebies.

In addition, I don't think there actually is such a thing as Japanese vinyl editions for Warp releases - all are imports, although I'm not sure if they originate from the US or Europe pressing runs.

There's a nice interview on Groove.de (German online music magazine) with Richard in regards to the Caustic Window Kickstarter - Richard himself clears up who the 'mysterious seller' of the Caustic Window LP was, and why it was being sold:

It also gives folks some slight hope ABB5/MFM will come out...


There's also another nice interview with Richard on Groove, circa 2001:

"So then he put thesis two other records up for sale - Analogue Bubblebath 5 and Melodies from Mars and I asked him to stop it - because I want to release them Properly through Warp. It's part of my back catalog did I want them to put out. Then this Notch guy, this Minecraft guy who so bought the Caustic Window test pressing on ebay bought these from him. And I said fine as long as he does not release them. I just do not want anyone to bootleg them"

 

bit late for that.

I get THIS as an ad for Telecom, biggest phone company in the country - they can't be serious?

Did Aphex hack Facebook-Ads as part of the campaign or what?

Oh, nice identifying the font!

 

Interesting - a Google search for Silian Rail font comes up with the fact it is in fact a fictional font, most closely visually to Garamond Classico Roman SC...

 

And, it's used quite a bit on fictional business cards - very odd coincidence!

To my knowledge, there is only a CD version of SYRO for Japan: http://shop.beatink.com/shopdetail/000000001850/

 

Also, I don't know if anyone has noticed yet, but iTunes lists the track times for SYRO: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/syro/id911319255?ign-mpt=uo%3D4

that's not the right font, the R doesn't look right (even if you take into account that it's a thicker style, the top part of the R has a smaller "hole" in it)

What font is Syro by the way? I think someone said OCR A which comes close but it's not that.

pretty sure it's called simple.

 

edit: nice telefunken

They are on the net, like he said himself, but they aren't bootlegged as in: pressed up on vinyl by shady guys without permission.

 

Well chuffed at the fact that AB5 will perhaps be released on Warp :) sounds like there's alot of stuff happening in the Aphex camp in the future.

Richard's concern was that higher quality rips would end up online, effectively scuppering any reason to release them legitamately.

 

I guess I can finally share this bit of the whole story since he's mentioned who bought them ultimately:

 

When we were getting ready to list the Caustic Window LP on Ebay, it was also decided to go ahead and list ABB5 and MFM as well - all was fine until the last minute, when someone sniped both releases - turns out that sniper was Richard himself, as he explained his reasons - the more he thought about higher quality rips getting out there, the less incentive for him to legitimately release them (and he was working towards doing so).

 

So, we talked with Ebay, got the auctions cancelled, and approached Notch Persson, who at this point was buying the Caustic Window LP (and actually was in the running for Melodies From Mars, but Richard outbid him at the last minute), and Grant talked to Notch, who agreed to purchase the others at an undisclosed price, since we were assured Notch wasn't going to rip and leak these online (keep in mind, this was the last known copy of the MFM test pressing - much higher quality than the tapes that got leaked years ago).

 

That's why I had to say nay to the Kickstarters for MFM and ABB5, and why the Ebay auctions happened the way they did.

Woah.

If Warp don't have any hints from Richard yet to release MFM they're really blind.

Also, nice story about the Kickstarter campaign ! Too bad I was broke at that time...

Thanks for sharing that - really interesting and I'm stoked to hear that these might get released proper.
