Huge fan. Massive gamechanger for me. Sensate Focus, SND, all the Mark Fell solo stuff, it's all great. 

I'm still trying to start a massive social media riot to out Boiler Room as a cowardice exploitative (they don't pay artists) censorship group because they denied the existence of a liveshow Mark Fell did with Russell Haswell, NHK'Koyxen and someone else (can't recall atm). I've contacted them a bunch of times through different channels and the only thing they ever replied to me about it was "Mark didn't do a set that night".

Needless to say, I (and some other chatmmers) saw the entire gig live on the stream as it happened. Mark Fell was leaning against a wall looking extremely bored like always, chewing gum and making bubbles with it while playing the most stupid corny 80's dance tracks pre-mixed in something like Audacity. One track I recall was just in the left channel, the next one in the right channel, etc. Obvious statement against current DJ culture / Boiler Room world. It was the most punk thing I've seen in ages.

I decided to email Mark Fell about it some years ago and this was his reply:

 

hi
I definitely did "DJ" that evening. I think they just got quite upset because it didn't fit their agenda. I'm not sure if the footage still exists but I don't have a copy 
thanks for your email and reminding me of this :)

The weird thing is, the SND Boiler Room set IOS posted in the previous page is probably my favourite SND/Fell thing I've heard - It's really nicely progressive and just ... groovy !

No, the weird thing is the comment section of that video and how Boiler Room ignores my (nice) inquiries

But yeah, that liveset is incredible. Played it to death :)

I've always liked SND but it never blew my mind. It's comfortable to listen to and the sounds are nice and all but too minimal for me and too many of the same ideas recycled over and over again. It doesn't even come close to ae for me. Still alright

Atavism remains my fav snd/fell release

 
yeah this, huge inspiration for my 0F stuff even when it isn't obvious. Atavism single handedly made me pay more attention to sound design in general.
 
I really admire SND/Fell's discipline/dedication to a very specific sound. I find it impressive that they can focus so much, it's such pure minimalism. Even to the point where I almost can't tell the difference between their first albums; they're like "planes" (or plains?) of ambience and micro percussion that kinda blend into each other. That sounds like criticism, but it really isn't. Perhaps though, I just haven't listened to them as much as I should (preferring Atavism most of the time)..
 
also lol, just tried looking them up on spotify:

The live vid I uploaded got taken down yesterday (and I got a fucking copyright strike) so I guess that means it's being released? afaik none of his other live vids have been taken down.

 

This looks pretty cool, will def give it a go

Bit hot and cold on the Dj Sprinkles collabs, hot on this one for sure though

 

 

Only video I can find of it and the lame cocktail party house Dj mixes out of it halfway thru. Sweet :(

 

 

Their ep with "Complete Spiral" on (synchronicity?), off this, is one of my favourite tracks in recent memory:

 

https://www.discogs....release/3611534

 

Fell did a project with an anthropologist, called "Dawn of Man", charting his personal musical evolutiion through 6 mixes of the tunes that influenced him, wicked fun & spans all genres, you kinda see/hear how SND evolved out of these foundations
