Don't know if posted yet but i think he might be influenced by jlin yo guys

All comments before the official release date are immaterial.

 

 

 

OK, so lets do the entire thing over! ;)

 

Seriously though, I'm not sure I like the contrast of the militaristic 'footwork' highhat rhythms with the more typical Aphex stuff that's happening in a couple of these tracks. There are a couple of parts where this interesting stuff happening in a track, melody-wise and rhythmically, but then these militaristic highhats kinda ruin it for me. I don't think the footwork crossover stuff is a very fruitful one, tbh. imo....

 

Production is top notch though. This is quality work. Musically, I'm not convinced though. It has it's moments. But again, these footwork crossover things kinda ruin it for me. Not my tea.

 

So yeah, discuss! ;)

 

No problems with the smearing reverbs though. hehe

 

Still digesting and processing it. All I can say is so far, after two full listens, I'm not hating the crossover. Maybe not flawless musically, but i actually like the mix of classic Aphex elements with the footwork rhythms. For the hats specifically, I'll have to take a closer look.

 

Whenever I question the percussion choices in a track, like I initially did with Marchromt, I thought "why have that weird sounding snare when you could have a normal snare?" And then I imagine Rich making it with a normal snare and then how it would sound and it would probably be a whole lot worse and he knows more than me so I just trust his percussion choices from now on.

Considering Ae dropped 8 hours of music that year with no hype but a facebook post it was a bit much for a 25 minute EP 

So, I uh, might have somewhat spur of the moment (but not really, been wanting this for a while) put a system in my car. Was initially going to just upgrade speakers but my wife talked me into going m

There's really no complaints about any sounds used whatsoever. This stuff is top notch. Changing the highhats for other sounds really wouldn't have made much difference to the point I was talking about. The footwork stuff feels like a distraction at places. That's more about composition than 'sounds' or production, if you know what I mean. 

 

The guy's probably inspired by it though. So more power to him. To me it was just a distraction of what was otherwise ace. Kinda like adding vocals to some BOC track. It's outta place. Shouldn't have been there. imooo

I love this stuff but I'm secretly hoping the next full length album is a return to less chaotic rhythm and more easy listening melodies and synth. like ICBYD, or the analord series, or SAW 2. I want like an hour or two of just farty synth love, cottage tracks, notting hill buss, analord 8, analord 11. Don't even know, just want some chill melodies and vibes.

Would be nice. But would also prefer he go a little left of that, not so much 'synth' but just....melody-based. This motherfucker wrote Avril 14th and Jynweythek Ylow and Nannou and IZ-US and  Aisatsana and a dozen other amazing melodic stuff (much of Syro's melodies, though couched in funk/pop beats, are v nice). Maybe he's sitting on a ton of prepared piano/etc and other stuff that just hasn't been fitting in with the EPs/albums? SAWIII pls Richie i know u can do it

not what I'm saying my dude. I just kind of dawned on my that while drukqs/the tuss are my favorite albums (still are), I am really appreciating his less beat-heavy stuff more, analord, soundcloud dump, SAW1/2/, icbyd. Would be cool to hear, say, 10-12 tracks of straight fucking elevator music. Get some dry synths, simple beats, some nice melodies. Would be nice to hear that side of him a bit. I'm probably just saying that because I've been extremely stressed out for the last couple weeks. When I'm less stressed out/insomnia my mind tends to suck onto the drukqsian stuff more than the old stuff/analord.

lol wow, only playing the record now. The vinyl is garbage. Constant and very obvious surface noise. Also the ltd sleeve was split yugely at the top.

 

wonder what's up with Warp's quality control lately. The NTS sessions debacle and now this? Two of their biggest selling artists with defects in the workmanship of 2 big releases?

      Coming soon on ROHS! RECORDS (4th December 2020)
      https://rohsrecords.bandcamp.com
      NEW NOYZELAB Album "CPMSubtree" audio will follow soon
       
      Noyzelab is David Burraston - or is it that David Burraston is Noyzelab? After experiencing the man's work, you may not be able to tell the difference. Noyzelab's debut at ROHS! is a surrounding and otherworldly album called CPMSubtree, made up of five surreal displays of studio electronics that elasticize the album's forty-minute runtime into unfathomable stretches of displacement. 
      Currently residing in Australia, Burraston has spent many years refining his focus in many different departments - lectures and residencies around the world, collaborations with Aphex Twin, Chris Watson, Oren Ambarchi and Russell Haswell, recordings published at Important Records, Taiga, .MEDS, Cataclyst and Psoma Psi Phi, and installations assembled in dozens of indoor and outdoor spaces. He has built his own synthesizers and has written his PhD thesis on Generative Music & Cellular Automata, working to explore and document his research with generative systems, computing and all kinds of synthesis. On top of all of these things, he's often found with portable recording rigs, doing field recording to capture exotic and interesting atmospheres. 
      CPMSubtree is, at least in name, a follow-up to TTMSubtree, a cassette issued at Psoma Psi Phi in 2017, although the sounds presented here are wholly unique, in their own macroverse of existence. When listening to Burraston's music, you can never be quite sure what it is you're hearing or feeling - is that a sinewave, or feedback? Are those bells or a DX7? Is that a gust of Cootamundra wind on the mic, or algorithmically processed white noise? Are we frozen in space while otherworldly spectrums of color billow around us at light speed, or are we being poured down a waterfall, one molecule at a time, to coalesce into a pool of pulsing fluorescence? You might ask yourself any or all of these questions - but Noyzelab does not provide any answers. This is a one-way trip that you can't come back from, so proceed at your own discretion! For those of us eager to map the frontier of new and stimulating electronic music, the unknown has never been quite so rewarding. 
      NOTE: Noyzelab recordings utilize the full breadth of the frequency spectrum, and as such, are best experienced with either headphones or speaker systems that can yield very high and very low frequencies without issue. Lossless file formats are also encouraged, to minimize the reduction of these frequencies and their presence within the recordings.

      Hi,
      I have a complete Analord binder (binder and records in mint condition) that I’ve owned from new since release. The binder was ordered direct via Rephlex’s website and the records from bleep.com as they were released. I haven’t played them and they’ve been in storage since buying. I’m getting more into buying synths/hardware and making my own music now and was wondering if anyone would be interested in a swap for their old/unwanted synth hardware.
      Ideally, and maybe in my dream world 🙂 ,I’d like a Roland JX3P or SH101, but would consider any sensible offers of analogue or digital gear. Also I live in England near to Folkestone in Kent so would prefer to trade with someone in London/South East so we could physically meet and exchange the items.
      If this of interest to anyone then drop me a message. Can provide pics etc to confirm condition.
