If you had to choose between Aphex Twin or Squarepusher to listen to for the rest of your life (OR, you can't listen to one of them anymore), which would you choose? Whose discography is better?
Since Damogen Furies just came out, did you think it was better than SYRO?
And anything else you want to talk about, really. Just keep it about Warp artists or people in those kinds of styles.
Yeah definitely Aphex Twin. Both have a lot of material but RDJ has to have a good 40-50 hours of music out, you'd never get bored. Plus more variety of styles, plus amusing sense of humor, just better in almost every way
Music Is Rotted One Note is pretty hard to pass up, though. Then again, you could just listen to jazz, I guess.
Also I am one of those people who didn't care for SAWII, prefer Eno for ambient stuff.
>so naturally I'd have to go with Boards of Canada
BoC only has 4 albums, though. You should really give Squarepusher a try, completely different stuff, but it's all pretty cool. Except for maybe Shobaleader.
>so much less stylistic variety in his body of work
Seriously? He's done jazz with MIRON, hard electro/dnb stuff, disco/funk shit, and even solo bass. I get Aphex has done a lot of stuff, but so has Squarepusher…
What do you guys think of the Damogen Furies?
Don't get me wrong, I love Squarepusher, but his style on all projects is almost always some sort of funk-driven type of jazzy DnB, drill'n'bass, whatever you call it. Which is great, but compared to Aphex (acid techno, drone ambient, prepared piano, drill'n'bass, I'm sure I'm missing some) it isn't as varied.
BTW everyone in this thread who likes SqP should also check out the Clifford Gilberto Rhythm Combination:
It's actually a though choice between those 2 records even though I like afx better overall.
I just picked up the 26 mixes for cash CD.
I have almost every "Aphex Twin" release on vinyl except On
