1st 44 is my favourite track he's done in ages. I like it more than anything on Syro (which I like a lot) and certainly above all the Analords.

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

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

Yep it's his best drum programming since drukqs imo

 

I like it more than anything on Syro but also think the mixing helps that a lot . I quite like MT1 as well but it's not as interesting structurally as 1st 44 for me..

Has been any confirmation that he used a computer for drum edits this time?  The drum programming is off the charts, and my assumption is yes... but I was pretty shocked to find out the programming on Syro was all analog style, Marchrom excepted.  

 

My reply to myself here is "who cares?"  But I'mma post it anyway.

Based on the collapse vid , and that interview he did talking about his new Swedish drum machine , I thought it was all RYTM sequencing tho phtex sounds different to the rest in this regard , to my ears .

I skip the first track and have collapse bonus version at the end. Works better that way. Video is top notch tho.

Yeah it's odd. That track really works well as an intro or exit track

I think it's part of the reason why he is so into the circlon or however it's spelled. Hardware sequencers have come a long way from what I understand.

 

I think the drum patterns are totally doable with hardware. It still has that semi rigid sequencer feel, even in the most insane drums where if seems like you can pull it off with hardware without it being too much of a fuss.

 

Doesn't mean he used hardware... I'd use software to do those kinds of drums before I used hardware to do them definitely.

I agree. It's the layering. He actually semi-took some of that drum programming straight from Jlin where she will have the transient and tail hit at different parts of  the stereo field where the tail has verb-y feel and transient is super sharp. And the ear's like correlation so it'll just feel like this massive hit. when it was layering.

 

It seems he's backed off focusing on synths and back on drums. 1st 44 is great. I've been making similar tracks inspired by 1st 44 and I can't really help it. It's that good. It feels super... adventurous? I just like the feeling of this track where the momentum is carried from beginning to end in a natural way.

I think "MT1 t29r2" is the standout for me, awesome programming and I dig the callback elements of "Taking Control" that come in later in the song.

So who likes the EP more now than when it came out? Who is bored of it? I still listen once or twice a week, not really growing old at all.

I tend to find because of the massive wankfest that errupts on the release of new Aphex material here on watmm, the tsunami of male spunk drowns me so much I loose all my sense of direction and what is good and what is bad. I'm spinning, lost in a frothy spume of man spunk!

 

Only two weeks ago did I start playing this again, after maybe 3 months of fasting in the wilderness I knew it was about time to go claw to claw with this epic beast yet again, yeah mate it's a right fucking banger.

 

HOOF! HOOF! HOOF!

yeah I kinda feel that as well. I think it has to do with Abundance feeling 'lighter' creating more contrast between the two tracks.

      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.
