T08+4 is reminiscent of Analord stuff. Pretty sure that the sweep at 0:47 is used in Pitcard.
FUCKING HELIOSPHAN ACID MIX
THANK YOU BASED RICHARD
Do you guys know where to find the unreleased analord tracks that were posted back in the day? How many times have you cried tears of joy during Richard's big dump? Right now I'm crying to the heliosphan live track. Jesus fucking christ
not a picture of the studio, but the gear that he used for syro
original was taken down but you can find copies and the pictures by searching for syrobonkers interview
#37 reporting for duty..... what's up dog?
are you talking about (vocoder disco) by chance? if so i got that one. it's slick and when i first started a playlist of all the first 57 songs it started off (vocoder disco) and then 1 70s tune, the latter of which i STILL believe is just about perfect and truly one of the standouts of this release.
it's not complex at all... it's simple and straightforward. there aren't 264 different aggro drum patterns waiting to have their moment in the sun like you have with songs like 34 5 P e, moreover you just have simple funky/hiphoppish breaks doing their thing and march-a-march-marching along to one of those vintage aphex twin synthlines.
70s tune is kind of like when they first reconstruct milla in the 5th element and the one guy in the lab is standing there all DURRRRR like "she's......perfect!"
anyways we seem to be holding pat @ 150 for awhile, so naturally that means once i get used to bumping all of the current jams there's going to be 15 more b4 i go to bed tonight. it's quite possible that this leak never ends and we end up with 500+ songs, isnt it?
it's almost like aphex twin was chained up to a studio in buckingham palace and forced to work round the clock because he's queen elizabeth's favorite musician or something.
also hey i wanna repost this image from aphex's twitter that i saw in the previous thread and once again ask.... have you guys heard the story of richard and bjork and dj smojphace and the whole 9 yards from back in the day?
it's a hilarious story that i'd love to tell you, that is if anyone wants to hear it. i gotta keep my autism in check so someone just say the word plz... i'll tell you my crackpot theory on why bjork has 23% to david byrne's 34% =D
ok then. WARNING TO EVERYONE ELSE: i am not just someone prone to TLDR, i am the veritable norse fucking god of TLDR. so even if takes a few messages i'm going to do my best to tell this story, which again is fortified by only years of speculation and assumption on my part having been one of the world's foremost aphex twin fans for a little over 20 years now.
a long time in a galaxy far far away aphex twin got to tour america with bjork circa 1994-95. i know if you get on slsk and search there's an "aphex twin live @ the cabaret metro" mp3 bootleg that exists from that tour when he played the metro in chicago.... so i'm guessing that richard got to spend enough time with bjork on the tour to get to know her fairly well, and from many accounts i've heard over tthe years she can be a pretty big diva/bitch/etc.... tho in fairness many say she got really cunty after she had that crazy stalker superfan try to blow up her apartment or whatever. it happens.
so back when the come to daddy EP was coming out warp records had a website for the EP on warp.com. they had a list of "things richard has been doing lately" and a list of "things richard hasn't been doing lately". i can't find any sort of archive of the old warp pages via a google web search, but from what i remember it was a bunch of goofy things that were kind of what we'd call LOLRANDOM nowadays, but of course thoughtful and intelligent and cheeky-funny.
prominently listed under "things richard hasn't done lately" was "get back to bjork about producing that album for her" -- which was some OOOOHHHHH SNAPS / SHOTS FIRED! territory at least to a hapless little 16-17 year old me who chortled upon reading that.
legend has it that bjork went to aphex twin first then squarepusher 2nd to produce her then-new-LP, which i believe ended up being the drum-n-bass/y one that had her ex-bf goldie and others doing the "hip-n-now" production for it
so yeah, from that shot fired on the official warp/come-to-daddy website you could gleam that richard was perhaps not too fond of little miss Icelandic diva over there, and as far as i can tell that was it for awhile....
...until circa 2004-2005 when aphex had done that smojphace EP >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAlhfBRfjpY >> and if you remember after that super-fun track i linked (AAARDCORE! AARDCORE! as if he wanted to mae the mc sound as dumb as possible =) he was evidently into this total noise stuff as the other ~2-3 songs on the EP were just out and out noise.
so evidently bjork was willing to let richard back into her circle of trust as she had a show in london/UK/something and she decided to let aphex twin open up for her under the name of "dj smojphace" --- and he was given something like an hour or two of DJ time before bjork was to come out and play....
so just think of it.... all those intro-2-cool-music-101 little bjork superfangirls and all the (presumably) twinky boys who wanna fuck em are packing the venue because THE LEGENDARY APHEX TWIN is djing before bjork! HOW AWESOME IS THAT! yeah! (aside, i dated a bjork chick once. she had a "b" lower case sticker on her window... i left her with a vinyl copy of analord 10" picture disc so she had a capital 7\ to remind her and any future lovers that a true 7\lpha male had been all up in that shit, room or women or otherwise =) and of course my ex was the upper 1%ile of bjork fangirls. they tend to suck.
so anyways given a canvas of stupid kids, dj smojphace came out and proceeded to play an hour or two of 100% total beatless/free-form ear-shattering noise. it was described to sound like cacophonies of dogs barking to babies crying to jet engines going full blast to some sort of otherworldly aggro noise beyond jet engines going RAAAAHJHDFKASHDFKSDHFS
...and since he had an hour or two to dj b4 bjork came out, he was able ot go longform with it for 1-2hrs of total aural feces!
so anyways, i remember the night it happened because i was a whattem guy back when it was the place to be (you know it all went to shit after we ran skytree and pen expers off the board, what can i say? =) so we were able to watch on bjork mesage boards later that night as angry bjork fanboys/fangirls came home like WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?!?! THIS APHEX TWIN IS A PIECE OF SHIT.... THAT'S NO MUSICAL LEGEND!!! THAT'S A MUSICAL ASSHOLE!!!! and rah rah rah blah blah blah blah i bet you if you google search "dj smojphace" +"bjork" you can find old messageboard posts/articles about the set.... but i distinctly remember all of the butthurt from the bjork massive who came home from the show to motherfuck aphex twin to hell and back for doing what he did.
the best part was that i remember reading that the setup was that aphex was standing behind some curtains that were parted right in front of him, but only enough to just have his hands come out and fiddle with a laptop/mixer/gear/whatever. so basically it wasn't like "oh there he is mugging it up on stage" -- he was rather anonymous and faceless as you weren't seeing "aphex twin" as much as you were seeing "dj smojphace"
and the fact that this guy managed to troll the ever-living shit out of bjork fans by playing 1-2hrs of ear-melting total shit super-aggro-hellish-noise = why i consider this dude to be my personal music hero. seriously, who doesn't want to be given a platform like that where you can go out and troll the ever-living shit out of a chick who ~10 years later has you opening for her royal bjorkness again?
these hijinks shall ensure that dj smojphace shall forever go down in legend and lore.... that is unless you grew up thinking chris moss acid was smojphace in which case i feel sorry for you.
btw chris moss acid started calling himself smojphace and then later this logo pops up. >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aB8OvNooN5c >> thats chris moss acid, logo of digital vomit records
dude i warned you i was going nuclear-levels-of-TLDR. maybe i should have put on a trip so ppl can filter me.... but fuck off m8. you got a story that's a good one IMO. im kind of a non-perfect storyteller at the moment but dont say you werent also warned.
and hey pimpng that track around the last week or so i got it from ~300 views to ~700 views. i'm doing the lords work passing around non-aphex-twin music like that, eh? the mp3 for that song was called something like "I CANT BELIEVE IT'S NOT DUBSTEP!" btw
but then again who doesn't have a soft spot for old digital vomit records releases? big in albania was awesome. shitty dance music will tear us apart!
Nice try. He does use computers. But he also has lots of hardware and robots.
WHY HAVE COMPUTERS WHEN YOU CAN HAVE ROBOTS.
damn i might have missed some because i'm not refreshing that page 20+ times per day... i just show up at some point and there's a bunch more and i roll with it. nothing more, nothing less. c'est la vie as the french in france would say.
first there was Fmsubbass, which got removed and reuploaded a few times. i think it's currently up though. then there was that [80s tite] track that wasn't actually his, he was just testing the copyright bot or some shit like that. other than that i don't think anything that was uploaded in the past day or so got removed
What does any of this have to do with twitter? Or David Byrne? The reason bjork is at 23% is because her and Dicky have a massive overlap of fans, that's all. Also your story is about 95% conjecture.
