Thanks! Downloading it right now.

Chewshabadoo (Chewshabadoo), Thursday, 25 November 2004 17:43 (fourteen years ago) link

Hmmmmm.

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Thursday, 25 November 2004 17:57 (fourteen years ago) link

Dear God, that's boring as hell.

Bernard the Butler (Lynskey), Thursday, 25 November 2004 17:58 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah.

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Thursday, 25 November 2004 17:59 (fourteen years ago) link

It just seems like an offcut from something his imitators were doing five, nay ten years ago.

Bernard the Butler (Lynskey), Thursday, 25 November 2004 18:02 (fourteen years ago) link

Well, track 1 is a little tracky, but I think it would work well in a mix, it has nice tension.

Chewshabadoo (Chewshabadoo), Thursday, 25 November 2004 18:03 (fourteen years ago) link

But, yeah, meh...

How much is he charging for this thing again?

Chewshabadoo (Chewshabadoo), Thursday, 25 November 2004 18:08 (fourteen years ago) link

Track 1(live) is OK, but it's totally derivative of his earlier stuff. It's more or less a ripoff of the "Analogue Bubblebath III" ep.

MindInRewind (Barry Bruner), Thursday, 25 November 2004 18:58 (fourteen years ago) link

i like track 3

latebloomer (latebloomer), Thursday, 25 November 2004 19:07 (fourteen years ago) link

track 2 i mean.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Thursday, 25 November 2004 19:08 (fourteen years ago) link

if they had marketed this as "universal indicator 6" expectations would be lower and peeps would be loving it.

vahid (vahid), Thursday, 25 November 2004 19:21 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah totally

latebloomer (latebloomer), Thursday, 25 November 2004 19:23 (fourteen years ago) link

track 2 > track 1 live > track 1

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Thursday, 25 November 2004 19:29 (fourteen years ago) link

New aphex thing
New Aphex Twin!

JoB (JoB), Thursday, 25 November 2004 19:37 (fourteen years ago) link

two months pass...
It seems like the above folks had gotten hold of a fake version of the release that was floating around. I originally heard it, thinking it was real, and was really disappointed.

Fortunately I came across a genuine version, and it's quite different. The correct track listing and lengths for Aphex Twin's Analord 10 is:

A1 - fenix funk 5 (5:01)
B1 - xmd5a (7:51)

This shit is fucking awesome! It's kind-of like parts of Drukqs, but more downtempo, with more interesting and satisfying sounds. (I hear he used solely analogue equipment, and by the sound of things that includes his midi-controlled grand piano.)

Andrew (enneff), Friday, 28 January 2005 03:03 (fourteen years ago) link

analord 1 & 2 are in the shops this week in the US. 1 is all heavy acid while 2 is excellent vaguely melodic techno. i like them both but 2 wins out this time.

heywood jablomi (heywood), Friday, 28 January 2005 03:08 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, I'm three tracks into Analord 1, which is pretty great so far. The opener is pretty strong.

Andrew (enneff), Friday, 28 January 2005 03:14 (fourteen years ago) link

Where's Your Girlfriend? is a very strong hard-acid synth tune that would rock on the dancefloor. I feel like I've heard this track before... is it possible that Michael Mayer played it when I saw him a couple of nights ago?

Andrew (enneff), Friday, 28 January 2005 03:21 (fourteen years ago) link

can anyone put this up for d/l? or email it to me?

firstworldman (firstworldman), Friday, 28 January 2005 03:33 (fourteen years ago) link

I'll email it to you if you want firstworldman.

I'm loving this, especially the last minute or so of Fenix Funk 5, which has me dancing about the room like an absolute ponce.

Patrick Allan (adr), Friday, 28 January 2005 03:44 (fourteen years ago) link

thank you very much, patrick... the email address i use here works splendidly. really appreciate it... i have a lot of random stuff too, i'll send you something back.

firstworldman (firstworldman), Friday, 28 January 2005 03:45 (fourteen years ago) link

unless there's something specific you're looking for. in which case, if i've got it, i'll send it.

firstworldman (firstworldman), Friday, 28 January 2005 03:45 (fourteen years ago) link

Terrible harmonies and textures. Hodge-podge of styles that just sounds bad to me. Seems like he's just goofing around. Or being a jerk. You can tell his music isn't informed by much other music.

Salvador Saca (Mr. Xolotl), Friday, 28 January 2005 04:29 (fourteen years ago) link

What a miracle, I agree with Bruner. Yeah. He hasn't evolved. He's stuck in 1996.

Salvador Saca (Mr. Xolotl), Friday, 28 January 2005 04:30 (fourteen years ago) link

so then what are the fake analord 10 files going around? are they actual afx tracks or is it someone else?

Lingbertt, Friday, 28 January 2005 11:25 (fourteen years ago) link

They're not anything that RJD has released before. Just really simple 4x4 stuff, droneish synths, etc etc. Really simple, little variation, polished-sounding but not impressive.

Andrew (enneff), Friday, 28 January 2005 11:40 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah, it wasn't mind-blowing, but still better than Smojphace.

Lingbertt, Friday, 28 January 2005 11:49 (fourteen years ago) link

I imagine when it's revealed who it really was they'll get a load of decent publicity. Just a shame it wasn't something a bit more exciting.

Has there ever been a fake album leak which was widely considered better than the original?

Andrew (enneff), Friday, 28 January 2005 11:50 (fourteen years ago) link

i heard bits of 1 + 2 and like it. i think he's good at this style, regressive or not. the whole must-be-cutting-edge argument is tired idm nerd shit. "bwoon dub" and "phonatacid" kick ass-s-s

eman (eman), Friday, 28 January 2005 13:40 (fourteen years ago) link

these tracks are awesome, i dont care what anyone says. and so much better than the fakes (which i didn't dislike).

latebloomer (latebloomer), Friday, 28 January 2005 15:27 (fourteen years ago) link

Can someone email me these trax too?

Curt1s St3ph3ns, Friday, 28 January 2005 21:42 (fourteen years ago) link

is "Laricheard" only 2.15 long or have i only got a snippet of it? i love the track.

jed_ (jed), Sunday, 6 February 2005 00:35 (fourteen years ago) link

jed_ (jed), Sunday, 6 February 2005 16:20 (fourteen years ago) link

harshaw (jube), Sunday, 6 February 2005 17:32 (fourteen years ago) link

if you are bolding the one good track from those two eps that is.

harshaw (jube), Sunday, 6 February 2005 17:33 (fourteen years ago) link

uh no it was a response to jed.

eman (eman), Sunday, 6 February 2005 18:02 (fourteen years ago) link

thanks eman - its a lovely tribute to mr fingers' "can you feel it?" but i wish it was 4 times as long as it is.

jed_ (jed), Sunday, 6 February 2005 19:50 (fourteen years ago) link

wait, so are these those 2 12-inch EPs that went out 2 weeks ago? how come they don't say "aphex twin" on them? does he have a different name now? how the fuck is anybody supposed to know who made them? anyway, i like the first one, the more acid house like one, where he calls himself "microcomputer." the second one was way more boring.

chuck, Tuesday, 8 February 2005 18:29 (fourteen years ago) link

they don't say "aphex twin" because that's locked down by warp/sire. the rephlex stuff is usually under "afx."

eman (eman), Tuesday, 8 February 2005 19:06 (fourteen years ago) link

these are amazingly good, but why oh why do they not come with sleeves?! and yeah, they sound kind of retro (which incidentally may be the point), but they are damn near perfect for february.

i'm curious... did you like these and what speed did you play them at?

friday on the porch (lfam), Thursday, 8 February 2007 16:31 (twelve years ago) link

i really like these 12s

titchyschneider (titchyschneider), Thursday, 8 February 2007 17:14 (twelve years ago) link

They were ok. Not as bad as I expected from Aphex Twin in this day and age.

jimn (jimnaseum), Thursday, 8 February 2007 17:14 (twelve years ago) link

'Where's your girlfriend?' off Analord 1 was pretty great.

jimn (jimnaseum), Thursday, 8 February 2007 17:15 (twelve years ago) link

several of the better tracks are not included on chosen lords.

held tony (held tony), Thursday, 8 February 2007 17:19 (twelve years ago) link

a lot of them were a bit one note in terms of being too consistent with the mood but he seems to have gotten better as a 'musician' over the years.

titchyschneider (titchyschneider), Thursday, 8 February 2007 17:31 (twelve years ago) link

> several of the better tracks are not included on chosen lords.

and there was plenty of space left on the disk as well (i think it was about 55 minutes). which just feels stingy.

Koogy Bloogies (koogs), Thursday, 8 February 2007 18:11 (twelve years ago) link

i play them at mp3 speed

Zachary S (Zach S), Thursday, 8 February 2007 23:41 (twelve years ago) link

i think a lot of people like analord 2

friday on the porch (lfam), Friday, 9 February 2007 03:09 (twelve years ago) link

analord 5 is dope. one side of it is this really druggy drexciyan stuff with the kicks really far apart.

it does all blur into one a bit but this is all still really good. tho i do think that even tho hes gotten better, chops-wise, theres nothing all that distinct that stands out. it doesnt resonate quite as much as the older stuff. still love it though.

uk grime faggot (titchyschneiderMk2), Tuesday, 13 January 2009 23:43 (ten years ago) link

Pissed Up in SE1 is pretty much the only AFX song i want to hear these days.

brotherlovesdub, Wednesday, 14 January 2009 00:05 (ten years ago) link

Whenever I see this thread on the New Answers page, I get a small twinge of hope that maybe he's finally gonna release a new album and somebody posted a press release or something. No luck every time :(

Mr. Snrub, Wednesday, 14 January 2009 03:52 (ten years ago) link

Which tracks, specifically, are better?

not better, but some highlights not included are:

Backdoor.netshadow (analord 9)
Phonatacid (track is pushing ten minutes) (analord 2)
Laricheard (analord 2)

I think the Tuss Confederation Trough ep is an improvement on the analord style. The tracks on it are more playful and colourful.

Lowell N. Behold'n, Wednesday, 14 January 2009 04:11 (ten years ago) link

lol was just coming to post about what a brute "Backdoor.netshadow" is. Shit owns.

For someone who at one point was the biggest fanboy of this dude, I have neither really checked out Analord or even know if he's released anything in the last couple of years... There was that Tuss thing he did in about 07 - anything else?

dog latin, Sunday, 16 August 2009 23:48 (ten years ago) link

You're not missing much, really.

Turangalila, Sunday, 16 August 2009 23:58 (ten years ago) link

didn't the warp guy (steve beckett?) announce an aphex twin release for '09 at some point?

can't believe i slept on this series for so long. analord 06 is so good

nautical nooba (rionat), Friday, 5 March 2010 17:09 (nine years ago) link

It was always hard to justify buying these records at import prices because they were interesting but not really jacking. It was always easier to cut to the chase and buy used copies of old Detroit and Chicago stuff.

I listened to the Analord Mix Tape when I was running the other day, and it was really good. That being said, it isn't something that I would want to deal with on a 12" level. I would rather just listen to it in an album format and be done with it.

Some of the new tracks are better than ones that made it to record.

It is funny that this thread popped up again. I have listened to the Analord mixtape a few times in the last couple days. It keeps getting better, really nice skewed house music.
