First listen this morning. A nice record, beautiful music..they sound like they’re having a good time together. How this combo works is a bit of a mystery to me, their contributions both meld together properly and stand miles apart from each other simultaneously somehow. I should have gone to Day for Night and I should have ordered a physical copy cuz now I want the versions CDr.

While maybe not the best comparison, the mixing ambient and VS here sort of reminds me of how I first heard Aphex stuff like ICBYD, with its ambient bits and crunchy bits all rolled together. Just VS crunchy bits are a whole lot more crunchy than Aphex's were. Personally, love Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois.

I didn't realize there'd be some pretty super-intense tracks on the album, like the breakz start coming in and even Lanois guitar stuff is manipulated to sound a little... messed up and it's amazing


also yessss nod to sampling on that longboy track with "THE MACHINE CAN COME THE MACHINE CAN COME THE MACHINE COME" is this a joke about the Selkirk Orchestra for Asexual Lithium Addicts

Would also like to highly recommend Lanois's latest solo album -- Goodbye to Language.  Similar vibes minus breakcore.

I should really like, not that Eno is bad but do a Google search for halfway interesting people who worked with Eno. It's easy to go 'meh' and not look into their solo work

      So since early 2019 I've been spending a lot of time gathering all my favorite bits from Vsnares catalog, eventually gathering them in this massive mix.
      I tried to make it more eventful than a simple "deck to deck" mix, yet smooth and enjoyable for a casual listener. Hardcore fans might enjoy tracking down all the subtleties too.
      No deck was used, all the sync & mix was done with Audacity and Calculator, a few effects were added sporadically. Almost every track has been edited at some point.
      I tried a Mixcloud upload but this got instantly unavailable for USA listeners (really...), so I quickly did a Mixlr link :

      Hope you enjoy.
      PS: some might remember 4 years ago i applied the same principle on Autechre discography, still online (and ok for USA ;) : https://www.mixcloud.com/NYUHM/autechre-25-years-the-megamix/

      Ital Tek (a.k.a. Alan Myson) returns to Planet Mu with his sixth album ‘Outland‘.

      The album was written during a period of new beginnings following a move out of the city to a quieter space and the birth of his first child. During this time of self-imposed isolation Alan recorded a huge amount of source material and spent weeks and months sitting up at night with his newborn, listening back and making notes on how the new record should take form, focusing and developing ideas to shape this lean ten-track album.

      Alan talks of the record being a collaboration between two parts of himself, something that definitely comes across as the album unfolds. Textures are something Alan excels at and on his last album, the largely beatless ‘Bodied’, it felt as if he was building a new sound-world. On ‘Outland’ he expands upon this. The album brings together the extremes of Alan's sound, contrasting roughened bass and beats with starker more detailed atmospheres and emotions.

      The most beat-driven song here is ‘Deadhead’, with its gnarled bouncing bass, angular distorted melodies and cavernous textures. On tracks like ‘Bladed Terrain’ the contrasts are even more defined with buzzing drones and razor sharp drums plunging into a grainy fog, giving the track a dramatic 3D feel. Then there are the stop-start pauses of ‘Leaving The Grid’, where the song evaporates into space before reemerging with shuddering rhythms and ghostly textures. Melodies crawl around these tracks as if they’re just waking up, as heard on the atmospheric ‘Angel In Ruin’.

      The sleep-deprived fraying of the senses became Alan’s routine and one which he says gave him a renewed creative energy; half-asleep, working through the night, and then into the daytime super-focused but exhausted. Prone to audio hallucinations whilst writing the album, he aimed to capture these distortions in his perception of pitch and time, and you can hear these effects interpreted on tracks like ‘Endless’ and ‘Open Heart’ as melodies phase and slip out of time like an emotional Doppler effect. This is also true of the soaring atonal synths at the peak of ‘Diamond Child’, which feel like the aural equivalent of eye floaters.

      I couldn't find a specific topic just about Venetian Snares EP's,
      I have been listening to a lot of them today and I have decided that they pretty much all kick a lot of ass.
      All of these are amazeballs and I am having trouble ranking them in order:
      Cubist Reggae Affectionate Pink & Green Horsey Noises Your Face Infolepsy Fool The Detector Doll Doll Doll I would like to hear more EPs from Mr Snares, he seems to be at his most experimental in this setting, with Cubist Reggae being a notable high point that would be awesome if explored further.
