anyone on here a fan?
an absolute fucking trip, certainly one of the better records Ae have ever released. it can be seen as a culmination of their post-2000s work: the knotty, subtle rhythmic pulses of Confield; the somewhat organic electronics of Draft 7.30; the full-on aural assault beatwork of Untilted; Quaristice's collage-like feel; and Oversteps' beautifully intricate and intimate atmospherics. its closest counterpart though would probably be Gantz Graf, just total (structured) annihilation.
conversely, it's their most unified record sound-wise. the record as a whole is tied together by this fucking monolithic low-end, certainly the bassiest and most percussive record ae have ever done, much of it borders on hip-hop at points.
the most accessible Ae LP in ages, probably their most instantly gratifying since Chiastic Slide, but it is still imbued with their signature abstruseness.
this bastard will destroy live, mark my fucking words.
