At least it's only $6 extra if you buy it as a bundle with the album.

ah nice. didn't notice that.  thanks for the heads up. not sure i'll get it but maybe

edit- actually from bleep the shipping is like 13 so it ends up being the same as if i buy the single separate at amazon for 15 so im prob gonna pass on that

“Be Up A Hello is a phrase that was used in my circle of friends when we were teenagers growing up in Essex but in particular it reminds me of a very good friend called Chris Marshall, who very sadly

never forget

I ordered from squarepusher.net (don't think bleep has the bundle or they didn't when it was released this morning).  Shipping was $8.80ish to the US. The vinyl is also cheaper on sp.net vs the bleep price. (the cd is the opposite though for some reason)

edit- I see bleep has the bundle now, too.  It's still cheaper at sp.net, I'm guessing bleep is charging for separate shipping (one from US, one from UK) so it's doubling it. I think if you order from sp's site you will get bonus tracks added to your account too, so definitely buy it from there.

^ yes the bonus tracks, that's a hooj selling point on getting them from sp.net


If we even get a few outtakes or alternate tracks for free, totally worth it (for me at least!)

my main problem with damogen was that even unlike ufabulum (which it was definitely a progression of), it seemed to lack dynamics, in both composition and intensity. the tracks just seemed like a constant assault of LOUD stuff happening (long intense  jams), usually without buildups or progressions. been a while since i've listened tho

Fracture RMX has to just be a fancy name, don't think it's by Fracture... bit confusing

You're right actually, I didn't realize it but the YouTube description says "Squarepusher’s own 'Fracture' remix".

Lol that is confusing as fuck.


Yeah i didn't hate DF, especially if you listen in the vinyl order with D Frozent Aac first (why did they do that by the way, have the order reversed on CD vs digital?).


There were some really neat moments on DF, but overall it was plagued by some of the issues as outlined above (sound design, fatiguing compression, lack of dynamics in terms of sound and structure), but i did see it as a move in the right direction from the 2008-2012 material.


I agree with the comments above that this new track does seem to have that same effect with the mix ducking around the hat which really stuck out to me - but everything else about the track rocked and i have a cautious optimism i haven't had in years

Hopefully the rest of the album is mastered similarly. I don't care too much about compression but there are parts of ufab and especially damogen that caused uber ear fatigue really quick, I'm not hearing that with Vortrak and the remix. 

And was there any imaging really in ufababoon and damogen? Or was that all lost in how loud it was? I'm hearing all kinds of things flitting all over in Vortrak by comparison.

What's the going on with being able to buy these tracks in 8bit? Are we getting some Patskin style, crusty Amiga 8bit versions too?

      Album entirely recorded using archaic recording devices. 
      Any thoughts? 
    • By justanotheruser
      I would like to share with you, beautiful people, my very first album release: "ReconoɔǝЯ".
      The following is an attempt at creating a “palindromic” record, meaning that it can be listened to from both sides: “(..) an attempt to materialize the backs and forths of life (…) It is music without a starting corner, but it takes the idea of a corner and turns it into a circle. The idea of the beginning being repeated at the end and the end at the beginning…”.
      Entirely recorded using archaic recording devices, such as Sony TC250, Fostex X18, Walkmans, among them.
      Hope you guys enjoy it. Love you all ♥
