Richard D James SoundCloud - A Gift To The Fans

Recommended Posts

wonder what AFX mode is, novation has been really good with updating old gear, inspiring really. would love the same with volcas for example, but my hope for that died long ago. Also, 700 pages, wew lads. daddy1 and two are truly a gift, hope it'll continue sometime this year :)

well now I'm incredibly curious. You don't see many new ideas in the synth world, much less on a fairly straightforward synth. Looks like microtuning was added a few months back.

fingers crossed aphex mode is a voice synthesiser installed into the synth via firmware and when you press the keys it says “aphex twin” in a computer voice like on cow cud is a twin.

microtuning on peak rules. peak in general is real good.

worth noting minilogue xd got the monologue implementation and might also be very nice but peak got there first :-)

novation wins

fatality

flawless victory

humiliation

afx mode is an unlockable tutorial to learn how to design sounds like aphex.

Checked the ol' soundcloud and  he recently mentioned Keith Flint:

 

Yeah i met him only once and was shocked just how sweet the dude was. We were playing in the same place down under and he checked up on me to make sure everything was good, super lovely guy, very genuine, hope your having fun in the other place Keith!

 

he also commented on a track calling it 'dope'.. which it definitely is. Woo

Anyone else feel it's weird there isn't more classics/SOS stuff as good as what was released back in the day? (IMO)

 

I kinda dream there's more that hasn't been shared.

found this quote off a rateyourmusic review posted 2010 (vhs head - trademark ribbons of gold)

Aphex Twin  has 100 hours of unreleased material shoved up his arse, and personally I wouldn't want to dig it out of there, no matter how big of an Aphex fan I am

I'm sure this dude was down by law with the Aphex Dump

i reckon it would be more weirder if the best stuff wasn’t the stuff that was properly released (??)

i can imagine an alternate reality where “human rotation” coulda been on a classics ep or something and no one woulda batted an eyelid

i thought there was tons of good classics era rave stuff.  Shouts out window peeper, strange rhythm, quadrave teac, fork rave.. and tons im forgetting.  Plus the whole saw1.5 playlist, its more mellow but would have been music from the era.

Agreed - Richard of course released the best stuff, but there are quite a few in the dump that would have been release-worthy or fit in nicely on existing releases, which is sort of what he's done on the Aphex Twin Bleepstore.

And we've heard what, two tracks from the archives which were made around Tuss/XMAS_EVE time, which does feel like a time where he was super into making dreamy dancefloor things.. which I adooooreee

Does not compute- He added an albums worth of bonus tracks to Rushup Edge on the bleepstore!  Same with orphaned deejay selek.  And imo some of those bonus tracks are as good or better than what got pressed to wax.

^ This. I already own Rushup Edge on vinyl and CD. Rich got me to buy it a third time with those extras. They're great.

^just wait when Analords are added to the bleepstore with tons of new extras. Then you can buy them third time!

+1 to this (also added with tracks full of harder PW vibes)

And since I'm posting the thread again....where the hell is that bleepstore update with the new tape tracks....and Rephlex cats....and R&S Saw 1.5 😭

Not always, imo. In a lot of cases I'd quite happily swap some of the final cuts with Bleepstore extras, especially on releases like ICBYD and Deejay Selek when the bonus shit is top tier RDJ.

On a completely unrelated note, replying from a phone has never been better. Nice one JR. 👍
