interview with luciano about special record for him.
transalted by google.

"This record was shown to me by Ricardo (Villalobos, nr.) When we were together in Chile at the end of the nineties. It completely changed my view of music. Gescom and Autechre can be quite challenging with their intricate rhythms, but the way they handle melodies here has shown me how electronic music can sound. It is still dance music, but it addresses completely different regions in the brain. I connect a very specific experience with the record: I was in the car with Ricardo and a few friends on the way to a party, where we should hang up. We just heard the long A-side piece when we had a serious accident. The car landed on the roof and the only thing left was the music. We went to the party on foot. "

Gescom – Key Nell (Skam, 1996)

„Diese Platte hat mir Ricardo (Villalobos, Anm. d. A.) gezeigt, als wir Ende der Neunziger gemeinsam in Chile waren. Sie hat meine Sichtweise auf Musik komplett verändert. Gescom beziehungsweise Autechre können mit ihren vertrackten Rhythmen ja ganz schön herausfordernd sein, aber die Art und Weise, wie sie hier mit Melodien umgehen, hat mir gezeigt, wie elektronische Musik klingen kann. Es ist immer noch Tanzmusik, spricht dabei aber ganz andere Regionen im Gehirn an. Ich verbinde ein ganz bestimmtes Erlebnis mit der Platte: Ich war im Auto mit Ricardo und ein paar Freunden auf dem Weg zu einer Party, bei der wir auflegen sollten. Wir hörten gerade das lange A-Seitenstück, als wir einen schweren Unfall hatten. Das Auto landete auf dem Dach und das Einzige, was noch lief, war die Musik. Zur Party sind wir dann zu Fuß gegangen.“

this is one amazing record, hands down my favorite Booth/Brown release (though I would have to add the Key Nell A + B remixes to this as well). the tracks follow a sort of theme - similar, very solid, crunchy beats, a chopped vocal sample that "solos" in several of the tracks, and string-type sounds. atmospheric, funky, crunchy, somewhat lo-fi, emotional, beautiful. a fantastic piece of music - Booth and Brown at their best.

A truly sublime piece of music that will go on forever in the depth of my mind. Well worth tracking down if you haven't got it. The bubble wrapping was the icing on the cake. Sugoi!

Key Nell is without a doubt one of Autechre/Gescom's best releases. It is interesting to note the similarities of some of Autechre's releases with Key Nell, particularly Cichli off of Chiastic Slide and Second Scape off of Anvil Vapre. To my ear, Second Scape starts off almost exactly the same as Autechre's Key Nell remix on Gescom's This.
