Listening to "Snackwitch", I think it could have been an older track of Boards Of Canada, because of the hip hop style and the vocals.

Not very crucial listening, sounds for the most part like leftover Autechre tunes, not good enough to fit on their Warp albums.

Is the vocal sample on "Mag" coming from Fantasy Three's ‎"It's Your Rock" Instrumental?

The sample in 'Mag' originates with the much loved drums from Melvin Bliss 'Synthetic Substitution', as used by the Ultra MAGnetic-Mc's (geddit?). Its great to see how far things travel... On a gripe note, it would be helpful if sellers could pay attention to listing headers & stop trying to sell the re-issue in the 1st pressing section- black sleeve & sticker = second pressing... Pain in the ass.

logo side is based around the amazing ULTRAMAGNETIC MC'S . the track was on their first lp travelling at the speed of ____ thought/ sound ? track had full loops used on this cut , and vox sample throughout track went "ultra magnetic magnetic , mc's ultra , magnetic magnetic .." cracking revamp this is . and the ultra's lp is one of the best ever hip hop lp's every track is aamzing

These two tracks sound really sample-heavy and hiphop-influenced, and they aren't much like what Booth/Brown were doing as Autechre at the time. Really raw and really good, more engaging and energetic than the first Gescom EP for me - (of course the packaging isn't as cool). To my ears, the first side sounds better at 33 RPM: at this speed it reminds me of a much rawer take on "Maphive 6.1" from Ae ep7.

What I love so much about EP2 is that it was a sudden departure from EP1. That's what you should expect from Gescom in their further releases for them to take the road less traveled and to do it so well.

Simple breaks get pummeled into a collage of textures like so much shattered glass. Starts out slow and funky, gets evil in no time flat. Essential.
