Aural Imbalance - Utopian Society, Volume One
posted a comment on Aural Imbalance - Utopian Society, Volume One. 3 months ago
One thing I'd suggest is cleaning it with an anti-static nylon brush. New records can often has residue left on from the pressing plant. On top of that, have you got different stylus to try? I'm using Shure Whitelabel carts on my Technics SL1200, and... See full review

Really not sure what you're hearing. I'm listening now as I type this, and yes, there's the odd bit of surface noise - as expected, it's vinyl after all - but 'ruined?' Sorry, but can't agree with that. Both of my copies, plus the test pressing sound... See full review

There are many standout tracks on Looking Good, but for me, High Point is up there with the best of them.

First of all, thanks for taking a listen. I feel you've misappropriated my intentions here though, so allow me to explain a little. As someone who also likes a lot of Autechre, the rhythmic work I created in these tracks is nowhere near as complex as... See full review

They were sold together in a pre-order bundle from voidvinyl / SMG, but the 12" sampler wasn't labelled as E and F, just A and B. The sleeve was made big enough to house all three vinyls though.

Sadly no. One of the main reasons I got this was for a digital copy of Inertia, and it fades out RIGHT as that amazing breakdown happens. Sorrow fades out a little too early too.

There's something magical about this release. I remember buying this and being excited, as it was the first release by 2 Bad Mice on Moving Shadow since Hold It Down / 4 Bad Remixes. Having not heard any of the tracks before buying it, I was blown... See full review

Slightly amusing, but that person on the front cover isn't me - well not quite. It's my head super-imposed on someone elses body, as I'm quite a bit taller. Not sure why they did it!

This really needs a small run vinyl pressing. Amazing stuff as usual from two very consistent artists.
