Production on rayc fire 2 is great, but that melody is complete cheese, sounds like Skrillex.

first listen : weird track. maybe I'll like it. Funnily I listened to Ufabulum yesterday (the time before was probably more than one year ago !). I enjoyed it as I used to but the production is so headache-friendly, couldn't find a nice level to listen to it. He might slowly turn deaf I fear, way too much high meds and high frequencies into that record. But that have been written on WATMM already. Anyway this track is also very aggressive production wise. I hope the whole album is not like that. 

his ufabulum live set was absolutely punishing. i liked the album but it is really pretty harsh. played super loud combined with strobing super bright white lights was like an endurance test. was glad i stuck around because he played journey to reedham as his encore

Fuck yes Rayc Fire <3

 

This is going to be one awesome album - I really loved Ufabulum, and it'll be interesting to see if it follows that style or not.

ouch, that always quickly put me out of a concert. When I saw him like four years ago it was ok. It was during the D'demonstrator thing (I don't know any more how to write it lolz). I never got into this album but the concert was pretty cool.

I don't, on principle, dislike the whole half-time, quarter-note-triplets thing...But sometimes I fear that Tom has assimilated EDM tropes in order to, you know, pay the bills.

I had a bit of a squarepusher splurge last weekend, did Ultravisitor > Just a souvenir > Ufabulous back to back.

So this has come at a good time! And I like the glitchy face artwork.

8 tracks, on 2xLP vinyls...
Either the tracks are 12 min long (which would be awesome), either Warp is kidding !

That downloadable track is quite possibly the worst song he's ever written.

 

Should of just called it "rusty door lp".

 

Don't get me wrong, SP is still my favourite artist of the bunch because he has so many fucking great tracks, but I really don't understand what he's up to these days..

Dark Steering was the first track off Ufabulum yet not every track on the album sounded like it and I guess the album in its entirety was quite surprising so I'll wait until I'll get a glimpse to the other tracks :music:

 

Regarding my last post : just saw the track lengths on Bleep, and yeah I don't understand why they're doing a 2xLP again :trashbear:

This is about where I'm at.  The track is unusually bad.  SP has been hit and miss for me, so I suppose I'll sit this one out.

I can only hope that's the case.

so, so so bad. And why make it the sample track? Wouldn't they try and make the best off the album the sample track to you know... help sell the record?

Yeah I guess you're right. That's what I'm hearing anyways.

 

8 tracks, 43 minutes/ish, for almost $40 (after shipping). 

 

If it all sounds like rayc fire then I'm cancelling my preorder.
