WAP381 - MARCHROMT30A EDIT 2B 96

Recommended Posts

Richard D. James 1996 : "Many of my tracks are better if you play them at 33 rpm. I have never denied that. That’s also why my pieces are so short: you can only press them onto maxi singles if they are short at 45 rpm. If they go for too long, then they don’t fit onto the vinyl—and then you can’t play them slower. That’s also the real reason why my album ended up so short. Buy it on vinyl. Instead of 33 minutes, you actually get 45, you understand? And there you have it, an album of standard length"

Are the beats on XMAS_EVET1 N computer controlled acoustic drums? I really like the way the kick drum has like a delayed room echo after it that gives it a bit of swing, like old break samples.

 

yeah i was thinking the same thing

 

 

I've been away a bit but came back to say this - I think all the beats on this xmas version are CCAI

i was never a diehard fan of this EP in its original form but dayum, 45rpm of "marchromt38 fast" and 33rpm of the side A is something i can jam . especially the 33rpm of the side A, it's got this slow and lush feeling, kinda like a detuned synthpop song. thanks WATMM for making me do this!

xmas evet 1 n still does nothing for me, in any form.

He's not saying 45rpm is the wrong speed... he's saying you can also listen to it at 33rpm

I wish we could get an alt mix of Thanaton3. Don't get me wrong, the Syro version is great (as is the one on this 12"), but for some reason that original live one at Metz sounded fucking ridiculously beefy.

Things sound way beefier over a $100,000+ sound system...

how did you find the link?

did you just go to the address bar and type random letters and hit enter and found this mystery clip??

why are you asking us what it is without any context :p ?

 

anyhow, it just sounds like the track being fed through stereo difference process or something.

Hello Richard!

 

Would be nice if you share that version ¬¬

The last half conjures up light-beings from a different dimension if played loud enough. Pure astral projecting fractalized tones - I really hope if he is working on newer stuff, it's along these lines. Syro and this track have really set the bar for craftsmanship, composition and production when it comes to modern music IMO. They are so well done and purely Aphex, he's in a league of his own.

there is a copy of RDJ album floating around that includes the girl/boy ep that is pressed at 33 1/3rd rpm and not 45rpm i believe, make sure you grab the right one
