actually 96 kpbs has been fine so far. perhaps it's the new medium

 

Been listening to it in the car and through a little bluetooth speaker and haven't noticed a difference between track 1 and the rest.  I've got a nice pair of headphones, but I'm waiting on that until the FLACs are released.

and yes there are some lush acid farts on there

 

And that's what matters!

 

 

Significantly less than usual though. When he said Syro was his way of retiring that style, I finally believe him. (also sorry for over posting, I've been super bored lately and I'm hyped up.)

I heard the leak. Really nice on first listen, def a departure from the tuss/syro/analord snare-on-two-and-fourstyle with a lot more footwork/dub and bass emphasis -- less pop structure and sequencer noodlin'-melodies, but more sonic exploration. Pthex was a fun re-visit of some Drukqs/Deathfuck style stuff

 

Gonna have to relisten next weekend with a head full of acid and see where it goes. 

 

 

Guilty Confession - I'd love to see an EP of just piano and ambient muzak from 'Phexer. The state of placidity I enter when Asiatsana comes on is mental.

actually there's way less acid on the ep than you would expect from richard.

Pthex reminds me of this tune, same eerie hoover sounding pads about a minute in:

 

 

Nitrous is one of the all time drum & bass anthems.  In what way do you figure Pthex sounds anything remotely close to being as rocking at Nitrous?

Pro tip: Next time you listen to 1st 44, remember that richard did this mixdown live and that he performed the record scratching and yelling live, those are not samples you're hearing. ( I don't actually know this but I like to picture him in a swivel chair yelling into a home-made microphone and scratching a turntable and switching up sequencer patterns on the fly while twiddling aux send amounts on the mixing console.

I'd throw some Squarepusher and Ziq, to complete the package. To super size the meal, I would ad a side of Luke Vibert and Venetian Snares.

Alright I'm sorry. I was out of my element. If you don't like footwork/dj nate whatever, fine. You're entitled to not like it. It's not the best track but while you find the repetition of the vocals annoying, I think that nate uses enough rhythmic variation to keep it engaging and interesting enough that I'll go back and listen to it a few more times, because although it's a relatively lackluster track on the surface, something about it is musically alluring to me. It's almost the fact that we tend to automatically dislike repeating vocals but don't care as much when it's a hi hat line or synth phrase. I think it's interesting to use vocals in that way, with those particular rhythms. It sounds fresh enough to my ears.

 

Same thing with Jlin. I really disliked her music the first time I heard it. It took a couple times for the rhythms to lock in and then her style of production started making sense to me, it no longer sounded like a smattering of repetitive samples. For a lot of people the first time they hear Aphex's drums on songs like Vordhosbn, it just sounds like someone haphazardly fucking with a drum machine obnoxiously rather than hearing the subtleties and repeated phrases that make it musically compelling.

 

Sorry for being out of my element. All of that said, it's still valid to not like Jlin/footwork/dj Nate. I just like it and I wish you guys did too :(
