Mind you, this is an EP, and a themed one at that - but I can see your desire for a multi-themed LP... perhaps soon...?

This has been sinking in nicely over the past few days. Really gorgeous stuff.

 

but

 

Much as I like the vibe, I do miss his '90s thing of whacking loads of different vibes together on a record. I think this and ODS would have worked together as the basis of a great 15 track album, rather than 'here's the dancey ones, here's the mellow ones'. They're both quite stripped back and simple, I think they complement each other really well. Off to make that tracklist.

 

My CD had the sticker on the shrinkwrap, successfully relocated to the back of the sleeve now.

Yeah, I get that there's obviously a theme with this one - but I suppose I miss the days where Rich would stick a bunch of tracks together for an album rather than compartmentalising. ICBYD, for example, is pretty varied in terms of style, mood, and even era it was made in. A record with some bangers and some chill tracks and some weird bits and a couple of deep emotive tracks would suit me better than a bunch of short themed EPs.

 

Not moaning too much though, I love both this and ODS and they're on regular repeat regardless of format.

Now is it 'badger' or is it 'lobster' or. Maybe an LP called 'Badger-Lobster' or something.

We'll call it the 'BAB EP'. Part badger, part bad ass.

A VS LP would be cool. Badger vs Lobster. Then we can have 5 sequel LPs. "BvL5: The Aphexening"

CIRKLON EP

He's already come out with a lot of cirklon tracks, and there's still another EP behind him in the cirklon area? Somehow I doubt that.

Just wondering out loud... the Cheetah EP might be the start of other hardware-influenced EPs Richard has in mind. Probably not though.

He's been pretty truthful lately. And he's been keeping his word for the most part so we know SAW 3 and MfM will be coming at some point. I really hope that SAW 3 being half done thing is for real.

 

Also... srs... badger. Like. I know you said it was a good hint, but um... I still go through that thread every day looking for that 'right' post.

I listened to this streaming on my phone this morning, thought it was pretty darned good. Nice little thing that keeps itself tamed and focused. I doubt I'll buy it any time soon, but there's a few catchy and interesting tracks in there, was expecting it to be much more boring based on the general tone of reactions in this thread. Good job mr afx

the rdj releases of late have all been pretty specifically categorized already.

cheetah ep = half an hour of cheetah synth.

ccai2 = half an hour of cat, etc

deejay selek = half an hour of misc. (??)

analords = 4 hours of music categorized into 20 minute hardware/setup specific EPs.

etc.etc.

 

the whole notion of him starting to release hardware influenced EPs seems to be a trend that started awhile ago, is what im getting at. im just hoping he keeps the releasing up cos everything has been very very very enjoyable :music: :^)

The bass a 4:52 in Cirklon3 -- I've always wondered how he does such squigly, melty, pitch-bendy lines like this. I've had some patches on my TX81Z come close, but I love how since the tuss he's been doing lots of those style sequences where they're really expressive and the pitch warbles around.

 

Think he's got an LFO rigged to the pitch and step editing the rate or just having a go at the pitch via midi on the cirklon?

 

Being a fly on the wall in the studio with the guy at work would be something to behold, just to see the process. There's obviously a tedious amount of work and he's put into his craft and it keeps getting more precise and fresh IMO. I've always figured that was the magic - just a dude who can write great tunes, pushing himself in an art spending more time just doing than than I do on anything. Not to discount anything he does, just that it really must be quite a bit of organization, work and discipline to craft tracks like he does with the setups he has. After spending a few days fiddling with a friends cirklon, it just makes me appreciate his tunes with it even more, they are really fun and quite deep, makes thinking about making some of the tracks he does with it at the helm would be an undertaking to say the least.

I am playing the hell out of this EP. Much more than I thought I would. I've heard it roughly.. 50 more times than DeeJay Selek.
