these guys are making super-detailed, satisfying tunes..

 

Autechre might be a lazy / obvious reference point--it's really that fucking good.

Yeah, picked this up a couple days ago off of seeing it posted here. It's pretty interesting, really unique form to the tracks. It's a little off-putting at first because of that, and I think that the seemingly-random feel flow of the songs might hinder them ultimately, but it's nonetheless well worth checking out and diving in deep on listening. I've only listened to it through like twice, will be very curious to see how I feel about it after 20 listens.

The tracks seem to flow pretty well despite all of the activity going on.. sounds are high quality, and there's good space in the mix. It's some of the most creative, Autechre-like music I've heard made with Elektron machines.

Really enjoying it. Get the AE reference, but a pretty smooth listen despite the glitchiness.

Great stuff, impressive that all this is livetakes. can those two machines do generative things? or is this merely a lot of preparation?

can't seem to find this on bandcamp anymore by the way..

Rytm and Digitakt can do plenty of stuff with varying degrees of 'generative' feels...though the word generative is pretty damned vague. Sure there's a lot of planning and improvisation, probably with some amount of on the fly creation as well. Likely lots of prep, though I'm speculating based on my own experience with Elektron boxes.

 

They wrote a note a few months back to their Bandcamp followers saying the album was taken down because there's a label that wants to re-release it at some point, I think including physical copies. I can't remember what else was mentioned beyond that, maybe was a bigger label even? Dunno. I can still see the release in my purchases collection (not even 'private' as Patronen A and B releases are after another label bought the rights or whatever), but there's no page to go to, just a download link, or it seems you can stream it there as well.
