Hahah! It doesn’t matter, I would of bought the vinyl only to sell. The downloads do me fine. £400 profit (200 each, maybe more) in the pocket would be nice as pie.

Erase one of those "0" there and im good to go 🙃 

A quick browse tells me that as 12"s you would have to pay ~40-50 € each, so with 11 + binder + 10 I would say the lowest you could get to it is around the 600-700 € mark, not including p&p. I wouldn't even think of selling mine under 1000 €, so 250 € would be an insult.

Just kidding? I really don't know what to do with that, as an aspie I have a rather dysfunctional humour interpreter.

Kinda odd he hasn't released anything lately, eh?

Collapse was the last official release (not including the live performance whitelabels and the Peel Session) and that was 2018, and it was 2014 for Syro.

Granted, he's nowhere near BOC's record for lack of output*, but I wonder why such a long gap? We know he's making music (or working on his back catalogue)... why not release any of it?

 

 

* As far as I am concerned, I fully suspect BOC have retired, and are not going to release anything and simply live off the royalties their existing catalogue produces. If it works for them, then great - not so much for fans wanting more output from them. Who knows - this could apply to Richard as well - I am sure he's financially comfortable to the point he doesn't have to release anything new and instead on making music for himself...

That's sad news all round if true!

Yeah, sorry to be a downer, but I can't help but think that way - maybe it's just the fan in me getting impatient...

i get not releasing new music but at least he used to upload to SoundCloud wtf suddenly happened??????

I suspect WARP got cross with him releasing all that for free which makes it harder for them to monetize it since most fans who really want it already have it and physical releases aren't what they used to be in terms of money makers.

I dont man, lack of output? most bands release 3 albums. Even the old academic electronic artists hardly release anything. Id say the output has been tremendous. 

I think this is it, really - electronic music artists aren't like traditional musicians, so really this is par for the course - I mean, we basically waited 13 years between DrukQs and SYRO (although to be fair he did release a lot of non-Aphex Twin stuff in the interim). For awhile after SYRO, it seemed like the "good old days" (aka early 90's) was back and Richard was releasing stuff at a regular clip - but now it seems to have slowed down yet again. Who nose...

Also, he makes a lot of tracks to get to the diamonds. The Soundcloud stuff was great but he has an ear for what should be released publicly for sale. 

 

While I somewhat agree with this, electronic music artists seems to have a higher quality level overall when it comes to their output versus traditional musicians - I'd say even Richard's rubies and sapphires are just as desired as his diamonds are (to continue with the metaphor)...

Indeed, after Syro we had insane amounts of music, Fieldday and DFN 12"s, the soundcloud dump, the Bleepstore, etc. After Collapse we had the London 12" with two? new tracks, and don't forget all the new tracks played in his liveshows (that were also recorded in HQ), and a couple of new tracks on his soundcloud a year ago. 

There's quite a lot of those new tracks recorded at gigs: 

I'm still digesting all of the output from the last couple of years tbh. It's nothing compared to the post-Tuss draught tbh :^)

Still very keen for this one to get released myself:
