Great label. Must dig out the cd compilation for a rinsing.

Was also a fan  of the Gecko spin-off label

Alice Deejay - Better off Alone is a stone cold classic and I will hear nobody say otherwise.  A perfectly crafted pop dance record.

Legendary, thank you.

Will pretty much finish with soundcloud now.  Given up on making "music" and given the dwindling number of dj mixes on there in general, its dead.

Probably already in this thread somewhere, but worth posting again anyway...

The "friendly" Eng vs. Scot scheduled for Celtic park in November should be interested, regardless of which way the vote goes...

The funny thing with Natasha Bedingfield is that she sang the vocals on this beast of of tune back in 1998 when she was about 14.

Hah never knew that. Picked up a copy of this from Massive Records back in the day.

Only because they don't want to inherit their share of the UK debts.

Let's be honest, being rich wouldn't last

That would be "nae moor tats"

Great interview but part of me thinks the entire thing is a giant troll effort and the journalist got owned.

And his 6 year old son sounds like Mark Fell? He went to see Skrillex at Glasto? Not sure if piss take.

Also, the new tune sounds good...

So Sasha's tent was poorly organised IMO. Magda only got a 40 minute set after presumably some equipment problems. She lookes well pissed off.

So yeah apparently I danced for all of Sasha's set but I don't remember one standout moment from it. Sure I was drunk, but it all seemed very pedestrian and unremarkable.

Also, the sound systems are still shit.

Won't go back again.

How long has sw4 been going now and every year it's the same complaint, you'd think by now they'd have sorted out the sound problems or is it just the residents kick off if the volume goes above 4

Why should they bother sorting the sound out, they sell a shed load of tickets each year. May as well keep on using the same old martin audio stacks and not bother investing.

However...

I'm fairly sure this year was the first Saturday that didn't sell out.

Someone should teach them about function one rigs, then at least they could crank the tents up to a decent level

If they had charged for this, I wonder how many people would have actually paid for it.

Out of the "Warp" old school crew, Autechre are my personal favourites.  Their early albums like Amber and Tri Repetae are beautiful slices of electronics.  Over 20 years old now too and still sounding great.

Sure, their recent works have definitely divided opinions (and if you Bedrock chaps can't stick Aphex or Squarepusher then I definitely do not recommend that you listen to Draft 7.30 or latest album Exai).  But they are well ahead of the game in terms of sound design, track composition and actual "new" ideas.

Squarepusher is generally a lot of noodly bollocks IMO - especially his output from the past 5 years.  He seems to be trying to experiment a bit too much.  His 90 - 2000s output of jungly live bass stuff was pretty good but lately its all jazz / improv / funk stuff and robot musicians.

I am quite on the fence when it comes to Aphex - he has this aura of being a god to a lot of people, and sure his early output (SAW2, SAW 85-92 and the recently released Caustic Window) is up there with Global Communication and the early Orb releases as some of the best ambient house stuff (or whatever you want to call it) ever released. 

Window Licker was a stroke of genius IMO - really raised his profile and got his name out there to a lot of people.  I expect he has made a dozen tracks since that he could have released and made money on, but thats not really his style.  His Analord series has already been mentioned in this thread - great acidic techno that really defined a sound.

I hope this new album is so varied in styles and experiments with stuff nobody has ever thought of before - this will hopefully yield a 3.4 review from Pitchfork and in ten years time it will be heralded as the instigator of a new genre.  Or some bollocks.

Rambling over.

Didn't Aphex Twin use sandpaper for vinyl or something like that?

I think the story behind this was something like:

Promoter keeps badgering Aphex Twin to play a gig for him.

He repeatedly says no.

Promoter keeps upping the booking fee until eventually Richard caves in and says yes.

Richard turns up, plays a sandpaper / drill / noise set to fuck off the promoter and walks away with a shitload of money.

Fair play I say.
