Autechre

Like Aphex Twin, Autechre were about as close to being experimental techno superstars as the tenets of their genre and the limitations of their audience allowed. Through a series of full-length works and a smattering of EPs on Warp, Clear, and their own Skam label, Autechre consistently garnered the praise of press and public alike. Unlike many of their more club-bound colleagues, however, Autechre's Sean Booth and Rob Brown had roots planted firmly in American electro, and though the more mood-based, sharply digital texture of their update seemed to speak otherwise, it was through early 12"s like Egyptian Lover's "Egypt, Egypt," Grandmaster Flash's "Scorpio," and "Pretty" Tony Butler's "Get Some" that their combined aesthetic began to form.

Booth and Brown met through a mutual friend, trading junked-up pause-button mixtapes of their favorite singles back and forth. Happening onto some bargain-basement analog gear through questionable circumstances, the pair began experimenting with their own music before they were out of high school. After some disastrous experiences with a few small labels, the pair sent a tape off to Warp Records, whose early releases by Sweet Exorcist, Nightmares on Wax, and B12 were announcing a new age in U.K.-based techno (and one in which Autechre would become a key component). Releasing a handful of early singles through the label, Autechre's first stabs were collected on their debut full-length, Incunabula, as well as the 10" box set remix EP Basscadet.

Incunabula, as well as subsequent Autechre albums, reached a wider audience through stateside licensing, first through Wax Trax!/TVT, also home to the duo's 1995 masterpiece Tri Repetae. LP5, released in 1998, appeared in the U.S. through a deal with Trent Reznor's Interscope subsidiary Nothing. All that followed came through a stateside branch of Warp. Although stylistically rooted, affectations for the ponderous extended beyond their name and track titles ("C/Pach," "Bronchusevenmx24," etc.), with the basic premise of their approach being DSP'ed-to-death hyper-programming and little stylistic baggage. Albums throughout the 2000s and early 2010s, highlighted by the relatively accessible Quaristice (2008), the more experimental Oversteps (2010), and the generous two-hour set Exai (2013), were not as groundbreaking, yet Autechre retained one of the most distinctive sounds -- as well as one of the most fascinating artistic progressions -- in electronic music.

In addition to Autechre, Booth and Brown released material as Gescom on their own Skam imprint and through the Clear label, most notably the Sounds of Machines Our Parents Used EP on the latter. The group also provided a number of memorable remixes (oftentimes more memorable than the original material) for artists including Palmskin Productions, Slowly, Mike Ink, DJ Food, Scorn, Skinny Puppy, Tortoise, Phoenecia, Various Artists, the Black Dog, Apparat, and the Bug. ~ Sean Cooper, Rovi

Solvent is probably the best Canadien artists I have found in the past decade. Synth pop and electro. He's carrying the torch for Canadien mainstays in the undergroud like Celine Dion and Bryan Adams :)
This sounds like me taking a s**t. Which include evil spirits that I hatch from my brown eggs.

Sounds like a cyber kitty purrrfing at the beginning!
absolutely have loved this now for two years.
Are you going to play anything off Exai??
What does it mean when a old rocker really digs this music? evolved?
Autechre changed the way I listen to music.
never gets old
Like MOntrealy this group.They are quite inovative
Classic. Like Split Loaf' described... Both liquid and sharp
First bought Incunabulawh e n it was released and was hooked.I searched record shops constantly for new releases to arrive when I got home I could not get the wrap off fast enough to listen.
I first listen to them in 98.. Surfing the net i found CLIPPER.. Im addicted to this band since then... Massive
Love them
beautiful
Love this
haha, nice one Clay. these guys make some pretty amazing music by the way.
zowie!
I'd love to see some intelligent people try to dance to this music.

ZING!
Both liquid and sharp. Good stuff.
Tripped out smoothness, tasty.
Ahhhhhhhhh.. . . Good choice for an avid SCORN fan like myself.
would love it if they had some HD sudio in 7.1 or better.
This is some really good sounds!
Amber, Tri Repetae and Incunabula are their best works. Cool group! :-)
Would love to hear their Skinny Puppy remixes.... how 'bout it, Pandora?
i like this music. jesus is lord!
good stuff
A few years now since I dug this lost puppy out of a box of unsolds.... what a find, still.

Biff Jibson's ugly prom date!
sciomachy
beautiful-I' d love to hear those original first pause-mixtap e s the guys shared with each other
I really like them. Great atmosphere.
it's the people, who make this type of music, that only those who listen with more than there ears can listen to, and find the hidden compass that the soul navigates by, this is you moment in time chosse the soundtrack well.

I enjoy the beat. Electronica takes my mind on little journeys.
I'm pretty new to Autechre. I've only listened to Bike, Clipper, and Nil. I have liked Autechre so far. I love Kraftwerk and Orbital, Orbital being my favorite group of all time. Can anyone give me a list of 20 songs or so that are Autechre's best?
the strings in my molecules really seem to vibrate in time with this...but i go back to the ambient eno days.. it is a time it is a place... enjoy and keep feeling the energy
never heard of these guys but love this tune that is playing right now...anothe r discovery... m a r v e l l o u s !
zap!
I'd have to say.. clearly a leader in the electronic field, never gets old, simply amazing.
Leaves you with a haunting chill and wanting more...
I've loved these guys for years and watching their career evolve from the biological into the technical has been an amazing ride. My best memory of Autechre was hearing "444" off of "Incunabula" for the first time... aw man. To date, they haven't released an album I haven't respected and grown to love.
I still remember the first time I listened to Tri Repetae++ right after it came out. Track 2 blew my mind when the bass riff came it. After that, I was hooked.
yea theese guys r pretty f**kin amazing i like this s**t cause ive done so much trip its cool to listen on
Yeah i really like this group too. Also alot of Aphex Twin's ambient stuff too.
I love Autecher, this type of electronic techno is so chill.
