Definitely inspired by it. Though it still sounds distinctly his, especially the last minute or so.

I just realized that my phone's native music player has a "most played" feature and out of 128 GB of music on my SD card, "abundance" is number 1. I thought that it could be the case but it's still pretty unreal given how much music I have on my phone.

I'm listening to it right now almost exactly a year later and this might be a hot take but it could be techno's Rosetta Stone. It lacks a 303 which really pokes a hole in my statement but it's just remarkable how in just 6:20, he sums up thousands of track hours and several decades of an entire aesthetic. Jesus as if he needs his dick sucked even more lol.

It's crazy how this track snuck up on me. I thought all the tracks were great when collapse came out, but Abundance was probably the fourth best to me. Now it's the one I go back to the most on the album.

BTW there's something kinda weak about the mixes of the collapse tracks on youtube.

Woah, listened to Love 7, Swurlk, and then Abundance all in a row basically. 3 very different tracks at first glance, but they each share incredibly similar melodies (at parts, not whole track or anything). I would never have noticed if they didn't come on so close in the shuffle.


Love 7 - 2:10ish
Swurlk -  1:10ish - actually I'm thinking it may be a purposeful/obvious homage I just didn't notice until today

then

Swurlk - the main chord progression at beginning
Abundance - 2:57ish- when the choir comes in, verry similar progression however Aphex's holds the notes longer than Swurlk

They feel very different and yet are so similar.

Definitely one of the best tracks I've ever heard. If I had a nickle for every time listening to it gave me chills I'd be retired

very good album. t69 collapse is one of those quintessential aphex tracks. did richard intuit the coming covid collapse? a little eerie how the track seems based on the concept that came to pass.

 

made myself a collapse++ playlist with the recent sc tunes, zt01 and flngchords, manchester mini live set, and soundlab20. rather dank.

At first, I found it hard to except the extra parts in the Durichroma version. Used to it now though!

Found out that someone where I work has the same enthusiasm for Aphex as me! He keeps going on about how much he loves the Cheetah ep!

I gave this full ep a dedicated headphone listen last night for the first time in a while.. completely blown away by how good each track is, my favorite has shifted between every one at different points.

the sheer level of detail in each track must have taken loads of concentration if he is still sequencing everything to record in one take as on syro..

also, a detail i had kind of forgot about is the last minute of 1st 44; how the track sequencing breaks down and becomes super loose, showing off all the crazy samples and sounds that were used but in isolation.  i would love to hear the end of the track as a sound-test on a massive sound system because each sound is so lush on its own.  1st 44 is definitely my new favorite.

By one take do you mean he sequenced it in one take? Or that he just records it all in one take. Because I hear this a lot and if it's the later I fail to see how that's particularly impressive. If it's the former then fuck...

Just had another listen and every track is still amazing, I don't get the hate t69 gets though, l guess that middle collapsing bit sounded a bit awkward at first but after it clicked the whole thing works so well as a story(prediction? Haha). Fun EP
