it's already out there in the world y'know......pirate it.

if afx is earmarked as his 'rave muzak for pseudo-intellectual dullards' project, how cum the last 3 aphex releases have been similarly mind numbing? sounded like a sad ket casualty teetering on the edge of the eastbourne pier in a real nice suit with light-up shoes.



^have seen canty play out here too, was marvellous. obviously prior to the equiknoxx explosion so not leaning *that* heavily on dancehall, but made a really strong link between uk soundsystem stuff and drone/ambient/concrte which was pretty whack at the time for a lot of people in a club context.

The last three Aphex releases were mind-numbing? I don't feel that way at all. But I'm not even sure which releases you're taking about. This one that you pirated+Orphaned Deejay Selek+Computer Controlled Acoustic? Or does the NTS shit count?

If you don't honor the difference between AFX and Aphex Twin, then what are the last three projects?

And you really no-likey Syro? That *has* to be in the "last three," especially if we're talking Aphex and not AFX. How could anyone not see Syro as a triumphant return?

yeah, he's really impressive in this regard. the set he played here was able to convey the same atmospheres he does with Demdike Stare through dancehall / soundsystem tactics. brilliant stuff.


unrelated, but here's a great ambientish record that's worth your time: https://ostresamigos.bandcamp.com/album/anxious

also Leeds' 8MANA crew is about to release its debut various artists release and it's really an interesting work, using elements of instrumental hip hop / beats and bass music to come with a weird sound that I really enjoy. release is called Sorry Julia, it's out this week I think

Ekoplekz has a new album out, I just realized. It's called Bioprodukt, and after a quick listen on Apple Music, I'm liking it pretty damn well.

 



Here's my current favorite track from the LP: Ekoplekz - "Slipstream (YouTube)

A friend attended the, Steve Hauschidt show last night in Austin. "Pleasant with an undercurrent of menace" is how she described the performance. I'm not all that familiar with Steve's solo output, I just knew he was a member of, Emeralds.

Cool! I haven't paid much attention to his solo stuff in the past, but his 2016 album Strands has some really nice moments on it. Colorful oozey woozey shit. And of course I quite like Emeralds.

I just realized that my favorite Emeralds album is for some reason not on streaming services. Got an itch to listen to Solar Bridge and have no idea where my copy has gotten off to.

Did I already mention that Jeffrey Cantu-Ledesma has a new album out?

Not strictly electronic, though often filed under that umbrella.
It's called On the Echoing Green, and it's more dreamy spaced-out crushingly lovely droning semi-ambient guitars and synths, from one of the most trusted dudes who still packs a six-string.

 


I feel like Jefre should have a more devout following, especially among Sonic Youth fans. I respect the shit out of him, and this new album is pretty goddamn glorious.

The new Jefre reminds me of My Bloody Valentine almost.

The only electronic album I've heard this year that I keep coming back to is Embers by Throwing Snow. It's not exactly revolutionary, but it has enough variety that it stays interesting for a whole hour, which is more than I can say about most releases I've heard this year.

There's a new Floating Points album out coming out soon. Apparently it's a soundtrack, but the tracks that have been released so far are pretty solid.

I think it's a soundtrack to a short film that was made *about* the recording of the songs, but I might be wrong. If so, I guess I don't really count that as a soundtrack album. But I'm excited to hear it.

Also, if you're having trouble finding electronic albums to hold your attention this year, might I suggest Visible Cloaks? Their new album Reassemblage is really one of the best things I've heard all year.

Also, Jlin's Black Origami, but being a footwork affair, it does have some redundancy to it. Still, mighty powerful album. I think she might be from the future.

And finally, I was ready to be disappointed by Botany's newest album RAW LIGHT II, thinking it would be a remix EP of songs from Dimming Awe, the Light is Raw. But in fact it's actually a really goddamn swell little album, with more high points than perhaps any album since the excellent Lava Diviner: Truestory in 2013.

Just throwing those out there in case you're interested in re-evaluating your 2017 electro-shit. Some good stuff out there. Not to mention Burial's "Subtemples" single, which is his strongest effort in a while.

haha, thanks man, you're too kind. you should hear what kind of shit I'm preparing for my next week's performance on a big festival. Kind of good, I'd say ... lots of beats, twitchy and unstable.

A "big festival" you say? Which big festival?

Will you share with the faithful when you have the recording?

Wow. I can't read anything on that page except for band names. Lol.

But listen dude, if I was attending a massive festival, one of my main spots would be the DJ tent. It's secluded from the big pop stages, and as long as it's not an EDM-heavy DJ list, it would be a place of welcome respite from the throngs of people.

This is exactly where I'd go in between my absolute must-see main stage artists, and I would be on the lookout for hot new shit to spread the word about. Don't be nervous man. If I caught a set like yours at a fedtival, it would make my freaking day. It would cut through the din, and I'd be very intersted in finding out more.

You are very good at this, and you caught my ear like a fishhook. Just go do your thing and know that you're likely offering something that a lot of your peers won't have on tap, so to speak.

yeah, the tent I'll play in, will be mostly experimental music and techno and that kind of stuff.
I've prepared my set in a slightly different way than the one you've seen on the video - this is going to be a bit more beat driven, weird twitchy beats, a bit like 2-step or early Aphex Twin, but I don't really know, I'm not a real expert on music with beats. but it sounds pretty cool.

Thanks for the support man, by the way. To both you and SYRfox. I'm scared shitless, though I know I'll go out there and do my best.

Fuck. Fuck. I'm reviewing the set and I feel like it's total bollocks crap. Maybe it's just the nerves talking though. I don't know.

You can't review your own stuff man.

I mean, I know you're not talking about that kind of reviewing. I imagine you are going over the recordings and checking for quality.

But still, you should turn that critical part of your brain off and focus on the mix and or the sound levels (or the video quality, or whatever it is you're reviewing) and not, "Does this sound like good music?"

In the newsroom, it's a rule. I've been doing a lot more copy-editing lately, and it turns out I'm quite good at it. But... if I write something, I'm literally not allowed to copy-edit that shit. Someone else has to. And I wouldn't want to -- story would suffer.

Get the product, whatever it is, ready for viewing/listening, and then let some friends tell you what they think (I can think of a couple ). We'll tell you if, somehow, you missed your mark, and we'll do it knowing damn well how solid your sets can be.

But for now, just get that stuff together and don't worry about whether it was your best set ever or not.
