some nice stuff in here (https://soundcloud.com/user48736353001)

most especially enjoyed the fungle here

could never have been released at the time because it's so cheeky and generic - but that's precisely what makes it so strong

Was wondering when someone would post about this. Some really top tier stuff on there along with all the experiments.

I've been enjoying this greatly. Career-spanning outtakes boxset in the making? Some stuff uberfans will know, some junk, mainly great vintage.

I've been enjoying these a lot - haven't listened to much else since it started.

Did a selection of my favourites for The Wire's show on Resonance. Have a listen if you fancy.

he's actually put out very little in the way of LPs

i'll be honest - back in the day i thought aphex was strictly student fare - indie dance in all but name - not proper stuff in the way that fr'instance the black dog was - but as i get older i've grown more affection for his stuff.

the new acoustic instruments thing is brilliant if you havent heard it yet.

SAW 1 was one of three CD's I bought in 92 when I decided to check out all this 'electronic stuff', and all the early material - Polygon Window, the R&S singles, SAW 2 - were all fairly hardcore genre records. What made him stand out was his warmth and singular approach to melody. If he had a 'studenty' period it was in the late 90's - RDJ and on from there. I think he spoiled me for more conventional electronica actually, took me ages to get into AE and a lot of WARP stuff after him.

The robot acoustic LP is really good. Have to pick up the vinyl and try it at both speeds.

But yeah, this file dump is the 21st century electronic equivalent of the basement tapes. A pile of unreleased material from the most fertile period of an iconoclastic artist, but playing out in real time on the internet. The WATMM thread is hilarious "he's actually on there now putting stuff up..." "Ive been pressing f5 every 10 minutes for the last three days...".

the difference between richard and the rest is that his music felt natural and effortless, like a lush wild garden tended by an eccentric gardener, in contrast other musicians were (often inspired) gardeners tending to one type of flower in different colours in an orderly arrangement. this is why it was so striking at the time, it felt natural, vast, complex and personal yet effortless.

"We need to decide an agreed way of tagging the tracks...I personally think we don't need to keep the track numbers as part of the titles"

its quite confusing what is the correct speed! though i prefer 33 - at 45 they sound like quite generic dance music/tripHop

if it is in fact *really* midi-triggering acoustic instruments (and not samples as i fear)- he missed a major trick because WHY NO VIDEOS???? it would be great to watch this stuff in action wouldn't it.... perhaps i should offer to go film them?

Its the real deal I think. He apparently has a whole room of them, built by this guy.

Given their both on Warp, it's surprising he didn't do something similar video wise to Squarepusher's Music For Robots thing:

It's incredibly impressive, whatever you think of the music itself. I didn't think music of this complexity played by machines on 'real instruments' would be possible.

Technical nightmare as well. A sign of masochism if you ask me. The worst of both worlds.

The quality of a lot of this stuff is really high - it's not just half finished tracks and crap. There's at least one great double album in it, maybe more. I really like the SAW/ I Care type stuff, cos I always did. This one is my favourite today but it changes

For anyone who's interested, he posted up a bunch of new tunes about a week ago, then deleted the account due (speculation) to trolling and fake accounts. He's back again now and all the news stuff is here: https://soundcloud.com/user48736353001-3
