I must say the occasional tape degradation on the 88-90 era tunes adds a pleasing William Basinski-esque quality to the tracks.

This. Decay of obsolete tech directly translates to quality works of art.

 

Edit: highlights for me on this round are water and Sekonda thru Bradley echoes. Water takes the cake, sounds so familiar and fits perrrfectly alongside 14 07 B and slightly with 12 space beat

It just hit me how seemingly personal this is..

 

RDJ could have charged YOU $100 to have these tracks. To listen to his music, he could easily have asked for money... And we all would have happily thrown it his way.

 

We're talking about 100+ beautiful tracks.

 

Instead 0 money is exchanged. Here I am listening to new(old) AFX because HE took it upon himself to give it to each and every little boy and girl.

 

Like every day people play music for each other for free, duh. But how often does someone at that level give away so much?

 

Really hits me. I mean I'm sure he's got more money than he can spend, or would care to spend..Probably doesn't need more. But it really feels like such a kindness from a place where that is so unusual.

 

Cheers man, thanks for the great tracks.

 

Or maybe he can't charge because fuck warp or whatever, that's cool too.

Looks like he's been deleting some older uploads, I'm counting 20 new ones but SC says 114 tracks total.

 

 

Will probably be burned alive at the stake for this kind of heresy, but I can see where the folks over at rare afx are coming from. I checked my skepticism at the door some time ago but I still get the feeling that some of these tracks don't sound like any of Richard's previous work at all. I know he is incredibly versatile and is one of the only artists who could undergo such transformation, but damn. There are quite a few previously unexplored avenues of sound being displayed here. At times I wonder, at the very least, if some of this material was the result of collaboration. If not the work of someone else entirely (shots fired?).

 

Regardless of my suspicions we're definitely awash in a sea of undiluted AFX acid here, and this will indeed go down in the annals of IDM history as the most baller move of all time.

Now, can anyone tell me...

Since the Future Music/Vibert track, how many total have gone up?

My count is 20 new ones. Is that right???

Is there a maximum sound length you can upload?

If your sound is over 6 hours and 45 minutes long, our system will not be able to transcode it.

 

 

 

mmhmm

I don't even really care about released bibio!

ahaha,

I actually loved his stuff when he was on Mush records,

then he started to sing...

 

those instrumentals on soundcloud are horrible, same with the free 3 tracks Clark recently released, where he turns Kayne West into a Burial sample, but badly..

Clark and bibio trolling Aphex again... These two...

why can we download some new ones but not others? how silly

guess i'll wait...

Tracks were flying fast tonight and he was having some soundcloud issues..lack of uploads likely just an oversight on those four that he'll take care of next time he's on.

I know I've been trying to say this and express it a couple of time in the pages of this thread,

but don't you guys think it's a breaking new grounds in music / distribrution / live experience.

 

That's like a personal live of amazing tracks, flowing, stoping, and coming back, it' magical isn't it ?

 

Hope this indeed is a long night !

 

yeah, fuck radiohead, this is how you do it...

Rich was having trouble with a track being marked as copyrighted material (wtf hey?) by sounclouds algorithms so he likely put it up and took it down several times. I think he tried renaming it a few times too.

 

In fact I think that's what pissed him off and made him stop uploading. INitially he said something about tonight being a long night so I expected more uploads.

 

I hope I summed that up alright.

Richard's Soundcloud posting issues again. I got 2 or 3 notifications for some of the same tracks, too. Should be 20 tracks + the one that Soundcloud kept removing (FmsubBass).

      I think making a singular thread to share my music is more tidy and less intrusive.
      Here's a couple new tracks I'm somewhat proud of:

      I guess they're going to try and not repeat some of SoundCloud's mistakes?

      he's talking about it on Twitter as a '112 track album' tongue in cheek it seems, more in line with a Soundcloud dump of various bits and things. just browsing through it now, some interesting little experiments and stuff so far. some seems to have been maybe one-off tracks on comps or something? idk. post some good finds (CSxYSL is nice!), there's over 6 hours from what i'm seeing...also SC is showing only 98 tracks so idk what the discrepancy is about there. anyway, tunes.
