lets say it arrives not fucked up like its been hit with sledgehammer from all sides after sitting at the bottom of a one tonne skip of other parcels, just like Gollum in his cave with his 'precious', it seems to be fruitless waste of obsessive time

 

In this day and age, with mobile loseless audio (sit in the garden, go for a walk, cycle through the countryside, climb a mountain, have picnic, go for a drive etc etc etc) why the fuck bother with an expensive ball ache of plastic that can only be played while sitting a few metres away from a machine that you have to turn over every 20 minutes

 

I dunno I just get tired of the same people complaining about their vinyl, never positive conversation about the music like most of us. Always the same thing over and over again about the materialistic nature of their precious vinyl

 

lol well put.  You're not wrong.

example of the noise on right channel. Recorded after I had cleaned the record and stylus.

Has anyone contacted blerp yet about the quality of the pressing? I haven't seen if anyone has. 

 

Since there are so many people it might be worth it. 

 

It's pointless for me to contact Blerp, since I bought from Norman Records (tired of fuck-ups with Blerp).

 

I can't even complain to Warp though, because they'll just refer me to the retailer I bought the record from. I've emailed Norman to see what, if anything, can be done.

 

I'm sure fuck-all will be done, since it's a one-off pressing...

 

I would still contact WARP and let them know - they can't correct quality control mistakes like this unless they are aware of them...

The contact page on warp.net doesn't really have an email address that's appropriate for this kind of thing. I could try sending to the UK Press Enquiries one I suppose…

it's just one big downer all the time isn't it?

1. I haven't made any comment about the music, because in this subforum, unless you're giving complete praise you are a fucking heathen. I find it best to just avoid that discussion entirely.

 

2. A lot of people paid £17.99 for a record that, by many accounts, has a pressing defect. Along with the issues with NTS Sessions vinyl that arrived very warped and with pressing defects, Warp's quality control has slipped drastically. While I was dismissive in the NTS thread about 'bent sleeves', I completely understand why someone would want the actual records to be playable.

 

3. Out of my collection of records, only a very few have problems of this nature. To claim that vinyl as a listening format has these defects inherently is to show how clueless one is to make such a statement.

A bit savage from beerbeast but he has a point.

Just let go, download the wavs and have a good time

Also give us your opinion about the music so we can nail you to an inverted cross if necessary

He doesn't have a point, actually.

 

Out of the 118 pages on this thread, there are a few posts that are making valid complaints about the pressing quality. But that constitutes as "never a positive conversation about the music"?

 

Bullshit.

 

It's just an underhanded way for someone to shit on a particular persons choice of listening format, whilst trying to justify why their choice of listening format is superior.

 

Always the same old people making those kind of comments too, by the way, but you don't see me pointing that out every time they bike in.

 

As far as my opinion on the music—comments like this (beerwolfs) are exactly why my posting on WATMM over the years has declined considerably. Everyone's a winner.

Mine hasn't shown yet either, but I'm in the US and ordered the special edition.  I guess that comes from a further distance.

My special edition shipped from the US, but I think it depends on when you ordered it. They probably fulfilled orders through the UK after their initial US shipment (stock for record stores and a limited amount of US orders) sold out. Edit - I order from Bleep a lot, most UK orders take 7-8 days to reach me in the US.

Lol at the 90s ravers just discovering footwork. Shit's the most interesting thing rhythmically to happen to bass-heavy electronic music in the past decade and it's been influencing wider artists at least since Machinedrum - Room(s) in 2011. It shouldn't be surprising to see RDJ still exploring and applying his mastery to new genres as he's done countless times before. If you can get past the abrasive vocal samples used as percussion in the earlier footwork releases, turn up the bass and give it a chance.

 

Required listening:

Bangs and Works vol. 1 & 2, Planet Mu

DJ Diamond - Flight Muzik

DJ Rashad - Double Cup

Jlin - Dark Energy and Black Origami

countless Chicago footwork battles on youtube

I gotta agree though this doesn't really sound like footwork to me other than Aphex having borrowed Jlin's sample pack

That would be cool, thanks for offering! Hopefully QC issues like these can be minimised for future releases.

Agreed 100% though Jlin comes out of footwork so the two are pretty intertwined.

Collapse EP is awesome. It incorporates the more "focused" or thematic approach of his recent eps but with a depth and an attention to details they lacked (imo).

 

I already see myself going back to this release quite frequently in the forthcoming years!!!

All the talk about if this is footwork inspired or not and all the soundcloud kids tagging all kinds of music as "FOOTWORK" is pathetic. "FOOTWORK" is just about to become another meaningless term in pop culture. Why can't everyone see this? Why does everyone try to fit in into all kinds of stupid new trends? "OOooh, my music is so footwork inspired. Also I take pictures with lots of Bokeh in Orange and Teal and I'm an Instagram creator."
