    Default Aphex File Dump

    some nice stuff in here

    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.

    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"
