The track that's available now is fucking top notch, I still can't believe I'm listening to the guy from RHCP... being friends with Aaron Funk did him well.

He made the peppers great imo. Bad solos? Its about the feels man. Like the 2 tracks, its fun and any album about a cat is a win for me. Will give it a listen or 2 but he prob got money enough and ria

Who cares how the guitar solo in Californication sounds when it’s sitting in one of the worst sounding productions in history, don’t even get me started on that hack Rubin because everything he’s been

John Frusciante releases the first instrumental electronic album under his own name on Aaron Funk's Timesig label. The record is dedicated to his cat Maya who recently passed away, a fellow traveller in his otherwise solitary music making sessions. He says "Maya was with me as I made music for 15 years, so I wanted to name it after her. She loved music, and with such a personal title, it didn't seem right to call myself Trickfinger, somehow, so it's by John Frusciante."

'Maya' is inspired by his favourite music: '91 to '96 UK breakbeat hardcore and jungle. It’s a varied and personal take with sophisticated, authentic production balanced against John’s acute sense of melody, an inspired blending of machines and samples infused with a joyful energy.

The process of making his tracks changed over time as John explains; “For a full year before I started this record, I worked within self-imposed limitations and rules that made the music-making process as difficult as possible, programming for programming's sake. After a full year of that, I decided to make things easier, to the degree that I could regularly finish tracks I enjoyed listening to, while continuing many of the practices I‘d developed. Throughout the recording of Maya, I would prepare to make each track very slowly, but would finish tracks very quickly. I'd spend weeks making breakbeats, souping up a drum machine, making DX7 patches, and so on. By the time an idea came up that seemed like the beginning of a tune, I had a lot of fresh elements ready to go."

Huh. Interesting. I remember around the time of TCH, one of the BOC guys recommended this guy's stuff. Looking forward to checking it out.

His other releases are under Trickfinger ? Or has he used other names as well?

that's the one i was thinking of, and i guess it's his only alias, though he is in some groups. ataxia is good. https://www.discogs.com/artist/79827-John-Frusciante

I'd put most RHCP fans into the 38 - 43 age band tbqh

I'd put most IDM fans into the 35-45 bracket. People who were in their late teens in the late 90s or early 2000s.

His Trickfinger stuff is pretty great, especially the first album. 

Under his own name, Foregrow is a lovely record. PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone is basically late '90s SP/Aphex mixed with his own lo-fi solo stuff.

Enclosure is pretty terrible though.

Name-dropping a healthy chunk of my heroes in this clip. I don’t expect to fully jive with his jungle joints but good on him for knowing what’s up.

ay nice I have an L78. The extra speeds are not much use but it's good to have. I never figured out if that slider has discrete values or if you can play anything from 78 to 16 rpm (as in, 60 rpm for example)
