Intricate, dynamic, tension ridden tumbling asteroids of mutated drum n bass. Occasionally a nice melody or voice. The amount of music he has released is almost inhuman. The only other artist I've seen that has released more is Milieu. Been listening to ... See full review

Criminally underrated group. When I think of post rock electronica I instantly reference these guys. Amazing blends of acoustic and computer treated sounds that fill the air with relaxing ambient quirky grooves. Pure freedom in experimentation that ... See full review

Gorgeous, elegant, sublime and sporty. For contemplation on cold winter mornings and hot hikes around volcanos at dusk.

Pixelated breakdancing, Terminator funk. Aggro and elegant. Drum shapeshifting. Sampler orchestra. Lazer guided Adidas.

Thats part of his charm on certain tracks. Just because you can’t wrap your head around that idea doesnt make it my problem.

Sonic dynamics and complexity that is only executed by a small fraction of the idm roster. Heavily influenced by The Residents and dark metal. Wrapped in a pulsating digital cyst that shape shifts and curb stomps sound like a dinosaur on pcp. Amazing ... See full review

Amazing that this came out in 2001. The sound is not dated at all. The crisp crinkles and stuttering clicks with the blurry ambience and thundering bass are very pronounced on my vinyl copy. This is when Schematic records was a powerful contender in the ... See full review

Proper ambient dubstep with the appropriate reaches too traditional dub with minor idm edits through-out. No wacky brostep bass lines. The real shit, top to bottom.

You can still buy the vinyl new from Lo Recordings at this time for a great price. (18 pounds)

Only Luke Vibert could and did find the funkiest, weirdest and progressive tracks in a reel to reel library owned by the government of France. There are tracks that really sound like they were made in the last 10 years on here. It's stunning, charming ... See full review

Great electro vibe excursions. Emotive melodics and rhythmic with dynamic synth textures. Proper and astute. And being on RGC you got to know their shit is exquisite.

Underground of the underground. Psychedelic percussion and melodies that evoke urgency. Proper Detroit raw electro all the way.

A dark, heavy, bassy break delight that floats between trap house and Skam sample break juggling. Intergalactic drive by music. Or ego dissolving traveler unto nether worlds. Heavy shit done so damn good.

The yang of Aphex's yin. Pulsing dirty breaks and tones with melodic layers packed on for a proper idm mineral snack bar. A little more raw than most but with quality control intact. His label is extremely prolific and continues to push forward in the ... See full review

The compilation when Schematic 'made it' in the idm scene. Even thought the first comp was equally as great. This is where the sound shifted to cleaner but not so super clean fidelity sound that made the idm sound so great. A great dose of sound ... See full review

Flawless career of an underground chune wizard. Buy it on vinyl if possible.

Mesmerizing chunky tunes with spooky carpet ride melodies and sampled break fuckery. The artwork is funny as it conveys the industrial efficient soul deprived designs of everyday plastic utility items. This one being a baby change station. I was one of ... See full review

Dirty bangers, quick energy and bass for the foots to tap toes. Reminiscent of Bogdan Raczinski sound but in the reverse since this came first.

Thank you for the info. Yeah I didn't even bid high enough at first and was asked to add more. I still don't see anything about a digital download either in my box. The lack of communication from their end is perplexing.

Found my copy in a free left over flea market bin that was given to my father (can you believe that?) 1974 vel-2003 pressing with a split sleeve. As old as it is and how badly it was treated it sounds pretty clean. Amazing grooves that bridge the gap of ... See full review

Major hit of the electronic underground. Amazing that they didn't have to repress this. A major expo of how the current idm sound at that time could be harnessed back into a more humanized analog sound with groove with absolute uniqueness. Many a fond ... See full review

I mean really. Considering MP isn't a 'metoo' idm artist and never would need to be, this lp is ambient electronica golden age production. LFO, Drexciya, Two Lone Swordsmen, Black Dog, Beaumont Hannant shit going down here. Above the crowd, way above.

Music that's been touched by god and the devil. Superb swerve down the urb through many curves that will serve the urge to encourage the the splurge that will cut out the bland scourge.

Oh yeah, bitch. This one got my amps on my KRK 10-3s burning for real (not kidding, I can smell it) . Man what a dope release. This is what electro ambient dreams are made of.

Got this 7" free with my order of Harmonic 313 vinyl. Pretty dope stuff. Skam records downtempo sound with a bit more ambient. Well recorded. Kudos!

This album evokes the transcendental musical moments I first experienced in my youth. Powerful use of silence with pin point precision of sound. These two artists were on top of the world or the universe for that matter when this released. The bridge ... See full review

So much hype and controversy with this release. Files got leaked early, reworks of the tracks were made for actual release. And it also took around ten years to get released. Finally got my copy on cd, then vinyl. A much more trip-hop ambient technique ... See full review

A league of their own. Powerful ambient soundscapes, tripped out hip hop and experimental breaks. These guys stand out above the rest and dont get caught up in the trends. They do what they do.

As I grow into my mid life years knowing Autechre's sound for over 20+ years I can say it's been a great ride. They have taught machines how to make music for them. A glimpse of Artificial Intelligence in it's purest form. They are of of those artist ... See full review

Quintessential chillwave. Chunky ass vintage drum machines and bassy analog (Oberheim matrix?) synths to groove you into the future with a retro twist.

Glad to get this on vinyl. This guy has more to offer than the VHS Head style sample juggling. I prefer the slow grooves out of the bunch. A nice walk between BOC, Vaporwave and 80's sample chop-up two step.

A very relaxing collaboration lp. The Thom Yorke collab is the best out of the group. I would rather there be more musician guests than lyricists.

Underground champs getting together for political awareness of post-Spain colonies. A little heavy and abstract but a great show for their cause.
