Mt. Fuji 2017 Cassette

Recommended Posts

So 'Nagradrums 2+7' is 'Beautiful Japanese People'???

Besides that one, there are only a few tracks of real interest here: 

 

Short Forgotten Produk Trk

2 Nx Neotek Test B + 11

Talkin2u Mix2

 

Still, very nice to finally get a rip  :music:

Yep, Nagradrums and Talkin2u Mix2 are both also on Bleep Store's Rushup Edge

Loving it! Lott more accesible then i expected! Not sure which track is which jet. Liked the long adrenaline rush near the end of side A!

 

Beautifull jappanese Nagga peeps, is a very different version then the Bleep store one..

Same here, have had it looping all yesterday, the modular tracks seem much easier to listen to this time round than from syrobonkers. 

thanks very much to those concerned in bringing it to our ears :)

Ditto. Few great ones like Buchla200 Rhythm 2B and @FX-MatrixT9. ModularTXX tracks from the Syrobonkus lot are fine too. Not necessarily my all-time favorite AFX release, but way better than I thought it would be. To my surprise, found myself actually enjoying some of the stranger bits. The lush Tussy tracks though seem little misplaced among all the modular pieces. Then again, if there must be a physical version of beautiful Japanese people, it should be on this.

Where does the tape break for Side B?  Discogs doesn't list that info.  Such a long tape, seems more easily digested in 2 parts, plus side B sounds way more abstract to my ears.

Side A is tracks 1-23 (ends at ModularT8 Spectral Modblur 2).

 

Side B is tracks 24-45 (starts at ModularT3 schmod pulse).

I'm listening to it right now!

Sounds great!

So happy finally someone ripped it!

Thanks to who has ripped it in two wavs and thanks to who has divided it into tagged mp3 tracks!

If and when the Master himself will upload it on the store I'll buy it asap!

Someone on reddit made this cover:

Bit boring tbh, especially since it doesn't fit the aesthetic of the artwork on the cassette.

 

Until we get something better, I've tagged mine with this:

Enjoying ModularT4 (Spektral Modblues) at the moment, one of my fave SAW2 tracks is 'Tassles' and this kinda reminds me of that. Happy days!

I really don't get these modular tracks at all. Do people really enjoy them or is it a bit Emperors New Clothes?

I love Aphex, he is my favourite artist of all time but there are only five tracks on here I like including two already on the new Rushup Edge.

I take it as an interesting document of his personal experimentation, but proper songs these are not. Some might say SAW II is in the same realm of thought, but closer to music than modular experimentation.

In the right frame of mind (usually involving being tired) i enjoy the modular tracks. Most of the time i have absolutely no interest in listening to them though. Making that kind of noise is always more fun than listening to it.

I'm not always in the mood for SAW II either but could always appreciate it unless i desperately need to listen to something fast. I think SAW II is far more musical.

There are some interesting bits hidden around the tape, but there are also a big amount of moments which excite me as much as phoning accidentally to a fax number and listening to the random chirping there would do. These do indeed sound more like experimentations added with some finished tracks here and there. Have to admit though that the experimental modular stuff is quite far away from the music that gives me kicks, so not an expert in that field. Still, it's cool to spot some bits which ended up to other afx tracks.
