are you still master of your domain?

 

:)

I am master of mine (besides T69 Collapse I listened to like once for the video!)

 

I've been listening only to T69 collapse on repeat in 2116

 

but not the others until sept 14

 

am I still in the game, master of my domain? :)

 

 

watmm, are you still in the game?

This is new stuff to me. Haven't listened to the other tracks yet but the track at 27min is really great, thanks for the tip! To me it sounds very Braindance, like Vulva or Ovuca. Maybe this album (available on Spotify btw) might help me remain master of my domain...

Its mark pritchard, teenage friend of aphex twin, releasing an album on warp records.....

Haha yeah I bet I'm the last person on this forum to hear this. I don't keep up with Warp releases in any way. This forum and Spotify's Discover Weekly playlist is basically the only place where I discover new music.

Are there any juicy acid farts present on the EP?

That is one of the rare records I bought without hearing any of it or knowing a single thing about it before hand. The girl working there at the time knew I was a Warp fan and pretty much peer-pressured me into picking it up. Being the easily influenced/intimidated nerd that I am, I did.  My horizons were expanded that day. 

 

edit: the record store is Sweat Records in Miami. It has a mural of Richard Twin painted on the store-front and for how small it was, had a fantastic collection of experimental stuff.

Does anyone feel like I do that T69 Collapse only 'works' in the context of the video (Weirdcore did an amazing job syncing up the visuals to the beats)? I've tried listening to the song sans video, and it seems like it's missing something (the "collapse" part of the song is really jarring without the visuals as well IMO)...

I concur.. very much so. I'm a little bit mystified as to why that was the single for this EP. Every other track is a fuck load more interesting.... Hoping more Weirdcore vids are made for more tracks.

Well I'm still a flagellating miserable monk. Fuck you Amen Warrior!

 

*sighs* 

 

tbh I've been off  work since Monday with a sinus infection and totally blocked (as in deaf) left ear, resulting in severe headaches behind my right eye. Right state. So I'm kind of housebound and bored. I got a steroid spray for my sinus on Monday from doctor, I got olive oil drops for my blocked ear which is to be syringed on Monday (which sounds fantastic, nurse is gonna do both, IDM will sound beast) and I've been taking painkillers for the headaches. And drinking wine to knock me out and make me sleep instead of gulping down a gallon of beer and annoyingly needing to piss a bucket from my bladder while just on the cusp of dropping off. Inbetween this all I've really done is sit on this fucking thread and fry my fucking brain. 

 

I cannot wait to get back to work tomorrow, anything has to be better than this!!

It's missing the other tracks, it's a great openings track for a flawless record that should be listened to as a whole

i find it pretty stupid they release 1 track and you gotta wait for a month for the rest, ugh

Really like T69 collapse. Wonder if I'll get the "WOW" feeling I did when I first heard drukqs. That was my first Aphex Twin experience. I then worked back through his stuff. I'll never forget when I first heard Wax The Nip. Absolutely amazing!!!

drukqs was my first one asswell and i got that WOW feeling with this one, hope you guys will 2

 

 

Yeah m8 - I had a friend who was deep into direction n'such so got introduced to Aphex via Chris Cunningham vids and was peripherally aware of SAWII and RDJ album, but my first "real" Aphex album was Drukqs (got it when it had just dropped). It was also my first real foray into electronic music (beyond ravey stuff like crystal method and whatnot)

 

I remember popping that shit in the car, and the 1/2 punch of Jynweythek Ylow->Vordhosbn just fucking floored me. Remember thinking "oh, shit YES - this is the shit I've been looking for."* Instant, eternal love. 

 

Anyway, this is all to say, this EP is givin' me all the feels, in the same way. Like crawling in a desert for miles and miles, and you're so thirsty that you've gotten beyond thirst, like your brain can't even remember what water IS (because to remember would utterly shatter your spirit, given its absence), and you crest a dune and, laid out before you in the glistening sun is a sumptuous oasis, pools of crystal clear water ringed by the most resplendent fruit trees, coconuts, strawberry patches, mangoes, and you slough your weary body to the edge and with your last breathe of effort roll yourself into the pool as the wash of water cascades over your parched skin, spilling into your mouth, exciting every pore of your skin, washing the filth and decay and hurt of so many miles, so many sojourns, until you emerge, cleansed and free, devouring the life-giving nourishment of the bounty of nature that surrounds you, tearing with abandon through this garden of eden, dancing, eyes empty and aghast, to the sounds of god-like music that is coming from around you, in you, through you, the rhythms of planets colliding and the melodies of heaven leaking through the crystal spheres of the sky, until you collapse on your back, sated, refreshed, empty, reborn anew, utterly spent, fully alive. 

 

So. Yeah, pretty "wow" for me.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Collapse EP. The synthesis is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of low frequency oscillation most of the sounds will go over a typical listeners head. There's also Richards influence, which is deftly woven into his sonic characterization- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Paradox dnb, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these breaks to realize that they're not just sick- they say something deep about RAVE. As a consequence people who dislike Collapse truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the message in the T69 video which itself is a cryptic reference to 'bass kicks in and the tempo starts slowing down, it's like a collapse of sorts' . I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those skrillex simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Richards genius wit unfolds itself on their smartphone. What fools.. how I pity them.

Flol!

Maybe with the higher quality and giving it some time. I wish everyone could feel how I feel about it.. Because it's really doing it for me. 4 mins into 1rst 44 I thought "Oh thank god" and by the end of the EP I was slack jawed in a state of awe. I really didn't feel that way about any of his recent output so for me this his true "return" if you will.
