While I can’t say their new album Oversteps does anything for me at the moment (Autechre are mostly something to be appreciated not loved*) this rare FACT mix indeed does push all the right buttons.
A surefire mix of everything the duo love, it’s got hip-hop from the Wu Tang, Q-Tip to drill and bass, sub-quaking distortion and a metal song interlude. No tracklisting is available as yet. Autechre play The Button Factory with Rob Hall on April 23rd thanks to U:Mack.
* Some individual tracks from Amber and Tri Repeatae are amazing examples of ’90s electronica at its best like Tri Repeatae’s ‘Clipper’:
MP3: Autechre – Clipper
Here is a related mix from Irish act Solen who mashed up The Wu-Tang with Autechre over the course of 30 minutes to breathless effect.
