33 1/3 & +6 on the pitch for the Box Energy. Mathematical breakbeat big boy b*stard acid!

Well, one of the [few] joys of CD is that we KNOW the Box Energy Remix is supposed to be ultra - fast, but one of the [many] joys of vinyl is that we can play it at 33RPM : )

Perhaps it is debatable what speed the Box Energy remix is intended to be played at, but I always played it at 33 1/3 and thought it sounded perfectly natural and much better than at 45. Give it a try.

Don't be scared, drop "Box Energy" sometime on 33rpm pitched up a little instead of 45rpm and be amazed. The tune magically turns into one of the sickest Acid Breaks tunes that I've ever heard. Seriously.

Now this is something special...
Track Flow Coma with group 808 State is one of Richards all-time favourite track according to available booklet for the compilation record Artificial Inteligence from Warp Records (Catalog# Warp Cd 06).
He has one track on this release, Polygon Window as The Dice Man

From the booklet:
Top 5 electronic tracks
K7 Acid by XP4
Astro Blaster by Joyrex J5
Flow Coma by State 808 (yes they wrote it like this!)
Synth It by Revelation
Computer World by Kraftwerk

I hope he will release remixes of missing 4 tracks later.
I am waiting...

I'd be hard pressed to find a slab of vinyl that contains a better set of remixes than this here beauty. Acid is the the common theme, but the tracks couldn't be more different. The Flow Coma remix thankfully doesn't disperse too much with THAT acid line, in fact RDJ appears to compose the track around this using it as an anchor for his ship of crisp breakbeats and wigged out vocal gurgles. The (purposeful) slapdash phat scratch break in the tune is vintage Aphex and is his stamp on this ode to 808 State. On the flip he reworks and transforms 303 maestro Pierre's Box Energy into a manic Acid drenched Jungle trip that leaves you gasping for breath as the 303s/breaks/drums burst forth like a biblical flood. Aphex does his weird break thang with a vocal (presumably not RDJ) recollection of 'Tom' dropping an E and wanting to "do this again, do this again", before a splash of reverb and eerie sounds launch you into the toxic jungle again. Phew, what an effort from RDJ.

this release, though not officially linked to the rephlex label, is still a rephlex release. this can be seen easily by checking the notes in the inner grooves of the vinyl release. the notes there say:

MEN1A1= CAT 112 EP (this is for side a)
MEN1 B1= CAT 112EP (this is for side b)

the CAT catalog number is the catalog number format of the rephlex label.
