Surely hope this one gets 16, 42 or 69 bonus tracks on afXbleep....

 

 

Have you guys seen that on Bleep, all other aphex records (except for the ones that already mainly feature the logo) also have gotten the Collapse treatment?

Yeah, weird that they skipped those. That would be funny Edited by Guest

There will be 2 CD editions for Japan - regular and limited. Fairly certain the regular will be a standard digipak with the limited being a card recreation of the vinyl sleeve like previous Japanese Aphex EPs. Not much deviation from the domestic releases beyond the inevitable obi strip and sticker thrown in, but can also confirm no bonus tracks.

 

Doesn't even look like they're giving a sticker :/

Every release I got from Beat Records in the past had a little sumthin extra, but none of the Japanese outlets mention anything.

 

 

Beatink product page states sticker included with domestic edition

new track is 10/10, he's perfect at being himself while at the same time bringing something new to the table. This is great music making.

I really feel like I'm missing something with the Ltd edition...What's the point of it? I was just gonna pick this up when it hits phonica but you guyz are making me question whether I should spend £7 extra for an extra sleeve which doesn't look as good as the normal one

Ya, good point... got it anyway

 

 

 

I bought it since I was at Day for Night, so figured it was kind of special. Seriously the best festival I've been to.

 

Also, it was $30. I spend more on pizza delivery.

I don't know what it is but his new stuff sounds "thin" to me. I'm assuming the mastering is great for dynamic range or something.. maybe I got used to super compressed modern mastering? I remember thinking this when I heard Xmas Eve for the first time. I still prefer the muddy live recording of that one before it was released. 

 

I think it's hard to mix this kind of thing. A lot of the background acid lines are quiet and the drums are way up front, including heavy repeated kick drums. So the mix needs lots of room so the kicks don't sound thin but they don't overpower the track either. It's got a similar sound to syro mastering I think. Drukqs was kind of a similar situation, the tracks are so busy that the mixing needs to cut a lot of bottom end off. I personally like the mastering of this release though. Not too compressed but still very loud and punchy.

 

 

Also the primavera track has been CONFIRMED to be on the new album (via shazam lol). Mt1 T29r2

 

Also, anyone  notice that the that T69 collapse has the exact synth loop as the t69 field day track at a certain point?

Heh, the bleep picture of the vinyl clearly shows a record that looks like it has seven tracks on the one side. I know they just used a stand-in because they don’t have the real ones yet but it made me laugh, given earlier speculation about this being a secret album.

I also spotted that someone got busy with the potatoshop over at blüüp...  :fear:

I realize opinions wildly differ when it comes to RDJ, as he scratches different itches for many of us. But he's been putting out music for over 30 years at consistently great quality. We're really fortunate he's still creating, releasing tunes, and playing live. 

 

This track fucking rules and I won't let anyone tell me otherwise. But I can understand how anything new will feel underwhelming, stacked up against his past. He's set a crazy standard to meet.

Please don't post 5 times per page. I understand youre very excited and giddy and have lots of exclusives that are freely available on the Web but try to keep tabs on how much you're posting. Scrolling through it can be a chore.

Get into a sport.
