.  RDJ totally ruined the continuity of the piece, not sure why he had his head up his ass that day, but he did. I wish he would have ruined someone else's favorite SC track, since he insisted on ruining ONE.

You make it sound like he personally broke into your house and deleted he track he previously gave away for free.. just listen to the sc track. Like you're really raising the bar of entitled fandom here m8

I never said anything about being entitled to anything, I'm just taking the piss. Lighten up a little!

I wonder if Richard starts to comment on his tracks after some certain listens.. 

His boxenergy4remix1 is on 19.4K listens now and maybe he start answering after 20 K listens. 

entitled fandom boy no.1

I'm a bit late it seems. Currently downloading the 290 original files download of archive.org. At awesome 500 kByte/s which is like 1/70 of my bandwidth. 🙂 Hoping for some gems. Was basically disappointed post Windowlicker.

yeah there are gems for sure, some of his best stuff is in that soundcloud dump. be prepared for lots of filler though.

also were you actually disappointed with drukqs? analord? the tuss?

Yes. Drukqs is his last CDs I bought. IDK, liked only very few tracks. Just remember Vordhosbn... Analords, wasn't a fan of RDJ going acid. Tuss idk at all. It's just that I moved on after Windowlicker. Oh and its glorious video... He was big fun, big bang, big innovation and trolling until then... hehe wonderful Ventolin beep, but then.. Wait, Rubber Johnny video was great.

I'm no expert past Windowlicker, just moved on. It's possible I just did not spend enough time with later tracks. Same what I did to Ae Quaristice (+EPs).

i feel like i've grown to prefer this format over the traditional album format: ie, just having a gigantic folder with a few hundred completely unsorted tracks from one artist in it... and having most of it not be "album" sounding material either, but rather a bunch of raw demos, unfinished stems, uncharacteristic oddities, alternative mixes, tracks that are literally just samples of stock drum machine sounds. it feels more alive to me somehow, more organic, more musically inspiring. a finished album is a little too static to my ears now, it's like something that got frozen in amber

but yeah all that to say i've been pretty into the SC dump material lately after not listening to afx/classic warp much for the last few years (aside from the cheetah ep, that disc is fockn dope)

Why does RDJ like so many strange Brittish old boring programs? No offence or so but is this really kind of intresting?

one of those versions is from drukqs reissue but what about the other one?

 

oh, there's another version in his soundcloud dump? can't quite understand why i don't have it...

 

edit: nvrmn i'm a dummy... he uploaded it today and you're just making sure everybody understand that they're 2 completely different versions... i agree with you!

that's comparing the bleepstore download (flac) from a couple years ago with the mp3 download from the soundcloud one, which is apparently a new upload and one he hadn't put on sc before

i'm not familiar enough with mp3 encoding to say if the waveform differences are attributable to that but the mp3 (yellow outline in the gif) seems to show new detail in some places, which i would not expect if lossy encoding from the same source

      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.
