    naivete leads to anthem trance and jump up though, true story.



    revolting jump up: he did not learn the serious lesson from 93 darkside. he should have shot people in the rave.

Need to check the 2010 and onwards stuff asap

    stop being an aristocratic nostalgic red tory! some of us nearly starved to death on the dole in this existing society, you know. do you really want to go back to a society where art is restricted to people who understand human feel and not any old johnny come lately prole who discovered a computer to make weird noises with? shocking, i tell you!

    you need to listen to jungle when it was good in 93 and then autechre will not come across to you as very complicated or lacking human feel or whatever:

(and now, but that's beside the point.) stuff like this, as much as I like it, sounds a bit clumsily executed rhythmically by comparison:

    it also sounds like a trueskool undergr00nd version of blank and jones cream. take from that what you will.

    a dollop of 00s british mdma naivete for chava with an accompanying post:

    "i still have no idea why you petty-bourgeois dilettantes are moaning about the overload of online mixes and wanna go back to the dj mix cd. if anything is good about the mix overload its that we're constantly excavating pirate radio tapes!
    like do u lot seriously want to go back to the days of ministry of sound club classics and james zabiela back to mine comps with Atticus and Cassandra doing nose bag and ket in ur living room whilst debating whether world war I started in 1914 or 1918 and whether Wilhelmian Germany was an ally?
    Then leftover condom, cum stains on the sofa and bits of ripped tight when you wake up, only to find that they were doing the nookie to an interminable loop of spiller feat. Sophie Ellis Bexter - groovejet?
    Sort it out!"



    weirdly enough the guy who made awesome darkside classics such as nightstalker b2 and until the night is morning. he was better when he was serious. look what drugs did to him! a travesty that patty should learn from!

    But I really love the early, much more obviously inspired by electro stuff. Amber etc

    the new stuff is even more electro though, just in a spectral way, without the trappings of modern electro or ambient techno. this sounds like the type of music miles davis would be making today.

    and i repeat, its not *that dazzlingly inhumanly complex*

    if you really want unapproachable algo for the sake of algo listen to richard devine. hard work to make it through a full album though.

    listening to nts session 3 this morning. their most club friendly and also as a result a kind of riposte to deconstructed club. splesh is like instrumental grime and shackleton got an elevator and shack decided to give the goldsmiths boys a good beating for them to find their groove.

    as for tt1pd, it's basically how dnb should sound today. simple and too long on first glance but turn it up and it reveals itself...

    I had 2 and 3 on last night and had the same thought, that detuned square lead sounds like Pied Piper or something.

    also live at glasgow art school 2005 is the most euphoric thing they've done. just one hour of glorious electro synth cords and hooks over stutter beats and tactile textures.
