Last time they were at the metro I introduced myself in the street outside the venue and rob was super chill and lush but sean looked like he was going to fucking kick my ass.

 

this just proves the theory that rob does the lush pads and sean does the hard beats imo

I'll be the dude with the AXIS t-shirt on.

What are the chances it'll sell out on a Tuesday night?

Hmm yeah that sounds how I would imagine them.
I was thinking of bringing my vinyl copy of Chiastic Slide I picked up yesterday in hopes of getting it signed… is it worth?

Yeah, I'm not gonna bring the record. I've just never gotten anything signed from an artist I like, so it was a thought.

 

I guess I never really use the term IDM. I know this is a forum where that term is used a lot, and that's fine, but to me autechre are just their own world of tehcno/electro… electronic music. I got into them through listening to techno, and AXIS is a Detroit techno label based in Chicago, and it's an electronic music shirt, and it glows in the dark, so I thought it would be fitting.

But really, who cares what you wear as long as you're having fun?

IDM is not a term here, it's a feeling. We use it as a metaphor for freedom of choice mostly. I believe Ae would be IDM with an Axis shirt.

Well in that case they certainly were IDM with my Axis shirt. Just got back to my home city. Was one hell of a show.
The Metro was packed. Great to see so many people out on a Tuesday night.
The sound was awesome. Came thru very clean and clear. Loved every minute of it.
Only downside:: I was hoping to score a Cygnus vinyl, but seems he must've sold out, cos they only had the æ merch, of which I got two shirts.

 

All in all it was a great time.
Perfect way to end September.

 

Thank you Rob Hall, Cygnus, and Autechre.

That was amazing. When I was taking the bus home I realized I haven't felt that clear-headed in ages. Some really cool bits from ae that I hope are on the new album, like those distorted vocal sounds and that bit toward the beginning the heavily-reverbed chirps that sounded like bats flying in and out of some massive cave. Cygnus' Eggshell remix was pretty neat too.

 

Btw cricket I realized you were standing right next to me for a while when ae first got on (I was the guy with black hooded sweater and big noise-cancelling headphones) but I hate trying to shout to people over live sound and had to book it home as soon as the show was over (work today, wooo) so my apologies for being antisocial hahaha.

 

Also, I'm curious if anyone here is one of the four people with Metro wristbands who sat across from me on the Green Line to Harlem and got off at Ridgeland around 12:40 AM, since it'd be cool to know other fans in Oak Park and all that jazz.

I'll be wearing a weird camo t shirt in case anyone wants to get all watmm stalker on me. I've never met any wattmers in real life and would be open to such a thing.

I was there, It was even better than I hoped it would be. I brought a friend of mine who is a techy death metal person. he was pretty blown away, he said it was sensory overload and he didn't know that was possible lol. I really hope that those sounds get released . the whole set was pretty aggressive. was about a two hour drive there for me. got the day off today thankfully. there was one part where they kept blasting this harsh brass sound that I had to cover my ears for a bit.

I was there last night - a friend and I came out from Milwaukee. My first autechre show too & they were excellent!

 

Only bummer for me really was the hundreds of people shouting throughout the entire show...

 

Are there any bootlegs from this tour? The whole time I was wishing i could have been listening on headphones.

      Anyone here know this guy from chicago ? it's really cool.
      I've been listening to his stuff since like 15 years now, and I never ever met someone who knew about him, he seems totally off the radar.
      i've been doing a quick search on watmm but found nothing related to him here (maybe i'm wrong !! )
      I did not checked it out since a few years and I just saw he still releases stuff.
      you can download for free tons of their early stuff on the https://padk-rad.com
      the style switched a bit from eclectic lo-fi electro to more soft tech/house oriented stuff since around 2010, when 2 of the 3 original band member left.
      in the old releases, check out "401K-RAD", "UTLTY", "T12 CD", "coldwentmodem"

      Something pretty spontaneous that came out of a slower track. 100 bpm. Reason10 for arrangement. oZone for stem mastering/effects. Just recently captured the _phuqr moniker. Been into the pulverized kick drums a lot lately, swingin around n the pan pot n what not. Track might get louder with more processing. Will be showcasing this track at an upcoming show in Chicago Aug 3rd. Some samples of samples hangin around in there captured from uChoob. #Snareup

      This is my first official independent musical release.
      This is a two track e.p. in the genre of hardcore dance with elements of dub and electronica.
      Mixed, mastered and conceived by yours truly.
      I have a ton of unreleased work that will be made available to stream and buy over time.
      Thanks to friends and family for all the support as I open this new chapter on my creative path.

      Mutant Beat Dance has returned with their debut self-titled 25 track album, a record album booklet consisting of 6 records in 3 different formats of 12″s, 7″s and 10”, a CD and in digital formats.
      This concept has been in development since 2015 with over 200 minutes running time.
       
      The debut album from renegade trio Mutant Dance Beat (Traxx aka Melvin Oliphant, Beau Wanzer and Steve Summers) takes the wild and free sound of Chicago’s Music Box era into the 21st Century. Over twenty-five tracks the album mines an oft cited but rarely understood ground at the intersection of Post-Punk, Minimal Wave, Industrial, Disco Dub, EBM and proto-House / early-House. “Mutant Dance Beat.” is an epic journey into a classic American ideology that had its apex in Chicago.
