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.

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.

+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. 👍

i think there are a lot of tracks in the dump that could,ve have had a release. It seems to me he held back some realy outspoken tracks, maybe to create “balanced” albums. There,s also some magic in there that,s hard to fit in to any album.

And also u could compile a couple of great albums/EP,s just out of the dump stuff. Like for instance a Clissold EP 🤤

He has also mentioned in interviews not wanting to release tracks that are personal/special, so he could enjoy them more on his own.  In addition to the many reasons, part of the sc dump was probably feeling that he was ready to move past being the sole owner of some of his creations.

Tracks like Sam's Car (of course im speculating here) give me that vibe, i can see why he would hold on to it..
