Ignatius :: Hudibrastic & Smug Ruins EPs (Buried In Time)

Ignatius blends (these) interconnected noisy streams into mangled glitch sandstorms and electrical distortions. Ignatius certainly knows a thing or two about modular equipment, on both Hudibrastic and Smug Ruins, it’s evident that there’s more to life than waiting for another round of Autechre material. If elseq-1-5 was any indication of Ae’s “constantly shifting focus,” than Ignatius […]

Autechre :: Incunabula, Amber, Tri-Repetae (Warp)

As cynical one might feel about reissues, however, they can sometimes be nothing short of stellar, absolutely warranted, and in the case of much out of print early Autechre, long overdue. For the longest time there’s been something incongruous about the idea of listening to Autechre on vinyl, a medium whose inherent limitations Booth and […]

V/A :: Covert II EP (De:Tuned / Touched Music)

From sweaty floor to Saturday armchair, Covert II will provide. There’s always a certain amount of media fanfare about the prospect of a “supposed” Aphex Twin release. A whisper of Richard D. James is as much tantalising click-bait for the electronic music nut as the promise of celebrity nudity is to your local lad. Covert […]

Igloo Magazine :: Best of 2016

While other sites might fight to get 1000s down to 50 or 20, at Igloo HQ we’ve refused to don the hair shirt of reducing respective contributor lists to a consensual singularity, in favour of doing justice to diversity via lists that range far and wide, and a congruent preference for letting their multiplicity simply […]

Autechre :: elseq 1–5 (Warp)

By taking their programmed music to the next level, what Autechre have presented here is a snapshot of what Brian Eno has been perfecting all these years: generative and constantly shifting music that could effectively just run forever, with every moment unique as a snowflake. You could run most of the tracks on elseq 1-5 […]

DECIBEL FESTIVAL 2015 :: In-depth coverage & visual archive

At this event the music itself matters, and audiences would rather hear Autechre’s complex and aggressive IDM in a blacked-out club than cringe at Steve Aoki’s new Celine Dion remix or Skrillex and Diplo’s latest collaboration with Justin Bieber (yes, these are actual things that unfortunately happen in real life at other festivals). Here are […]

AUTECHRE :: Live @ 3S ArtSpace (Portsmouth, NH Oct-2015)

An Autechre live show in 2015 is an almost indescribable event. Imagine, if you will, a hundred thousand metallic wasps swarming in the midst of a gathering tornado. Autechre brought their live show to the US this fall and as usual didn’t disappoint while the support acts were somewhat hit and miss. I caught them at the […]

Touched Two :: Mega Cancer Benefit Compilation out November 28 (Touched Music)

What is particular about Touched Two is that so many artists came together to compose new material for the compilation. Certainly, while many other similar efforts often do the same, this compilation also showcases new and upcoming producers. It’s pretty usual for pop artists to band together in order to contribute to a cause; enter […]

DALGLISH :: 3View

‘What we have said makes it clear that music possesses the power of producing an effect on the character of the soul.’  (Aristotle, The Politics, 1340a) ‘It is a pervasive idea in Western culture that music possesses social and emotional content, or that its semiotic codes are linked to modes of subjective awareness, and in […]

Amalgamix takes you on a literal trip through the past two-decades with some of the most influential pioneers and veterans of the experimental electronic music scene.

Uexkull :: Hormad (Brutalist Sunset)

Some of Conner’s movements are steeped in the rich history of Autechre and Funkstörung, others adopt some more modern moments of the floor. Bitstream were an electronic act that caught the imagination. The duo of Steve and David Conner were active under their Bitstream alias from 1998 but have been quiet since their last outing […]

Quinoline Yellow :: Palisade Mount EP (Touchin’ Bass)

The melodies are structured to remain accessible, mysteriously distant yet oddly uplifting. Percussion and rhythms are sci-fi cerebral and, whilst unashamedly experimental in that Warp/Skam ethos, will have you busting your favorite robot moves and cranking up the volume (again). With seemingly no end in sight of unexpected releases in 2013, there comes another in […]

Autechre :: Exai (Warp)

Exai embraces the spirit of improvisation with fluid, almost jazz-like structures and staggering new highs of sound-design and progression. This refreshingly glitch-free approach brings them closer to their live experiences, humanizing Exai and making it more approachable and relatable than they have been for quite some time. How time flies. It doesn’t quite seem possible […]

(All on Vinyl with […]

ROBBIE GEOGHEGAN :: Fallow mix

Autechre :: Oversteps (Warp)

(April 2010) It’s a rare thing in these internet savvy days to be genuinely shocked by a new album from a well established artist, not least because there are frequently spoiler laden press releases, samples or free/exclusive tracks flying around months prior to the release date. The announcement of a new Autechre (“Ae”) album generates […]
