So recently I got a request from a user if there is a possibility to do a Kickstarter similar to the Caustic Window LP we did back in 2014 for Tom's "Methyl Orange" LP, a 2x12" whitelabel apparently only given to Richard, Chris Jeffs, GWC, and potentially a few other mates. Was destined for MEN Records (a Rephlex sublabel) back in 2003 but never saw the light of day.

Wait - what? "Methyl Orange LP"? I'd never heard of it until now...

So, a bit of Googling (you get a lot of science-y stuff if you just Google "Methyl Orange"), and I did find where I am assuming Tom played these tracks live for WARP20 and keyfumbler posted it to Mixcloud:

A comment on the Mixcloud page seems to indicate this set contains tracks from that LP, and Richard has played some in recent live sets:

nice one. this had all those sought after tracks that everyone thought was aphex. turned out it was a TJ whitelabel he only released to mates. Methyl Orange.

Anyone have more info? I would like to know a bit more, and the possibility of a Kickstarter is highly unlikely, but I'd like to know more.

And the god damn opening track, pure magic.  

Sorry if I gave anyone the impression that I am more "in the know" on this than what I stated - I never had heard of this proposed release until recently, and there is very little online to go on.

Guessing this thread could get a lot more attention if there was mention of it in the Aphex section of WATMM?

Nice, I would definitely support.

Or rather than a crowdfunder, go straight to the man himself and see if he will stick it up on bandcamp or something.

Bancdamp / Bleepstore / Warp would be an amazing option as well, I'd rather have mastered version than vinyle rips. I'd pay nice money to finally be able to compulsively listen to those tracks in HD.

so you're asking us if we should do it? but you don't have the actual wax right? Do you have a connect with someone who would share them or is this just speculation?

Sharing the tunes would need Tom's approval anyway. Would be absolutely amazing if you could make it happen though Joydad.

Would be really cool if this happened - would be a huge pickmeup for a bunch of fans feeling the relentless onslaught that has been 2020 so far! 
 

I mean it won’t pay my back mortgage payments or anything lol but yeah.

      Inspired by @NewSchoolScience post in the thread, I got to thinking - what is everyone's favourite Autechre track that's unreleased?

      hello
       
      how is the sky?
       
      I want to share with you the next release on my label art-aud that will be released next month,
      in the trust that some of you could appreciate
       
      the record in question is a four track ep composed by alastair johnson between 96 and the new millenium, and dusted from old DATs. he really did few things with the alien alias in that era and then kinda disappeared.
       
      we are happy so to have had the opportunity to find him and bring this beatiful material back to light today
       
      in super addition, the three originals are accompanied by a long trip interpretation by the masterminds B12!
       
      the 180gr. vinyl, in a beauty-weirdo full printed cover, will be distributed by clone and available in the online stores, and directly from us (for digital heads too)
       
      any kind of feedback and support is very welcome
       
      respekt!

      Hi!
       
      I’m Timi Alexander, a 23-year old Finnish singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist living in London, and I'll be releasing my debut solo album on Soundcloud and Spotify within a week or two. The record takes influence from the 90s alternative rock and hip hop production (Liquid Swords is a big inspiration on the skit-like nature of the album flow), a combination that will further be explored on the future releases, as well as Aphex Twin. I've performed and produced all the music in my bedroom, an environment I've found surprisingly inspiring over the course of the making of the album.
