Guess I’ll be listening to the EP starting from 1st 44, skipping T69 because durichroma is so much better. It is a 5 track EP for me.

What the heck are you talking about?
Just saying I like one version better than the other. The extra parts in durichroma sweetened the track for me and now I don’t really enjoy the original that much. Durichroma hits all the right spots, while the former now kinda lacks something. Might change for me after a while but this is how I feel about those two tracks now.

 

edit: aahh, now I see you probably didn’t know there was another version :) my bad.

I don't mind listening to it twice in the space of 35 minutes either. Not sure about the first segment that was cut, I think the more direct transition in the edit works perfectly. But the second extra bit is sweet.

 

I agree, the collapsey bit that was cut sounds good in isolation, but the transition in the original definitely works better. The extended ending is better tho.

What the heck are you guys talking about?

 

 

if you're not aware of the bonus track, see https://aphextwin.warp.net/

abundance is top tier afx, the perfect closer to the ep. I never expected to hear a track like that on a 2018 release, thanks afx  :cattears:

I'm really appreciating this EP.  Nice little gestures to sounds and atmospheres explored in the past with a heap of fresh explorations as well.

 

The beat work on most of the tracks interests me the most on this. Loving the melodic work on Abundance and a few of the break aways in 1st 44 though.

 

Super appreciative of the EP but the selfish part of me is thinking forward to what the next LP will sound like. If it is the case that some of the beats on this are programmed via the RYTM, i'd love to have a look at that.

Can't believe that my foil 12", ordered morning went up on Aphex site, STILL hasn't arrived, but every store I went to today had copies of the foil release and my son, who ordered the cassette last week, is happily sending me pictures of the cassette that arrived yesterday. WTF.

Can't remember when Bleep hasn't failed me on a pre-order. always arrives days after the release date. How about sending the record in time Bleep? sending it out 4-5 days before the release date is not gonna cut it.

I listened to the 96kbps rip from my phone which was left inside a phone box about 100m away on then other side of a dual carriageway. I had to bass boost the eq a bit.

 

Only then were the reverb trails acceptable.

abundance doesn't really do much for me, it's built around a sample which feels kinda kitschy and off-putting to me to begin with and the melodies are kinda tired and the track sort just meanders along for me... maybe time will warm it up to me

wtf! is the best track in the ep for me. has all the oldschool afx goodness in it.

 

use of samples in the ep is :ok: . just about the right amount in the right moments

5 track EP is a nice treat, 6th track and now it seems more like a proper body of work, in my eyes at least, probably the symmetry. Infinitely grateful, what amazing tunes, getting Houston Live version is so legit, been wanting that ever since I heard it in December 2016.
