DJ Mix: Autechre Retrospective [Feb. 25th, 2010|12:52 am]

In the process of writing my review of Oversteps today, I listen to bits and pieces of the entire Autechre discography. Maybe it was because I was trying to listen critically to Oversteps, but something about Autechre clicked in my head in a way it maybe hadn’t before. There are times when they’re experimenting and doing crazy messy stuff with the beats, but a lot of the time they’re trying to synthesize their own kind of funkiness. Moody, autistic broken robot funk maybe, but funk nonetheless.

So I pulled together all my Autechre CDs and downloads and tried to select something from every release that spoke to me as a compelling piece, and then started trying to arrange them together in a way that made rhythmic sense and had some flow. You’ll be the judge of whether I managed to pull it off, but it was really fun trying. I had to go from 75BPM to 167BPM in a little over the hour — by the time I got to ‘Sublimit’ I went crazy with the effects, so it’s kind of an ad hoc remix/hit job.

I think I hit every release aside from their remixes and odd stuff like the Hafler Trio collaboration.

If you don’t like Autechre at all I don’t think I’m necessarily going to change your mind about them. But if you have any interest, give a listen.
