Richard D. James, stand out as one of the most important electronic music artists of all time? There is, after all, plenty of talent to go around in the Intelligent Dance Music (IDM) scene, including Autechre, Venetian Snares or Boards of Canada, to name a few. But how did Aphex Twin become a legend and major festival headliner material?</p> <p>First, a bit of history. The IDM name was coined at least a decade before that other, now ubiquitous acronym (“EDM” or Electronic Dance Music), the latter of which has become the umbrella term for all things electronic and club-friendly. IDM could be considered EDM’s polar opposite: suitable for headphone listening, full of minuscule details, built on exploratory techniques and odd time signatures. I personally know a lot of math-rock, prog-rock and classical music nerds who enjoy IDM; their vinyl copy of Venetian Snares’ seminal Rossz Csillag Alatt Született carefully alphabetized next to their Van der Graaf Generator LPs.</p> <p>And while Aphex Twin is certainly one of the pioneers of the genre, his take on IDM over the last 3 decades has often veered into more danceable territory, hence the other nickname used to describe his music, “braindance”. Whether it’s straight up four-to-the-floor hardcore (as heard on 1995’s Classics compilation), melodic drum’n’bass (“Meltphace 6”, off of 2001’s Drukqs) or midtempo acid house (2016’s Cheetah EP), Aphex Twin creates songs that are both challenging and fun – warehouse rave music made by a genius.</p> <p>But another element that sets Aphex Twin’s music apart from his contemporaries is James’ talent for crafting indelible and haunting melodies. One of his most famous works, “Avril 14th”, is a piano solo composition that exists entirely outside of the IDM realm and stands on its own as a modern classical piece (and as the sampled backdrop for Kanye West’s “Blame Game”). Even famed composer Philip Glass deemed Aphex’s “Icct Hedral” worthy of a reimagining using a full orchestra and choir. James is both a technical and compositional master, which makes his music more palatable than a majority of his peers’. Because, to be frank, even as a fan of the genre, a lot of IDM can often feel like trying to enjoy a complex mathematical equation.</p> <p>On a more surface level, Aphex Twin’s appeal also lies in the way his music has been presented to the public. He became notorious in the late ‘90s for his nightmare-inducing music videos, notably the ones directed by Chris Cunningham. These include the brutal, industrial-tinged “Come To Daddy” or the distressing “Windowlicker”, a grotesque R&amp;B caricature featuring bikini-clad models whose faces morph into James’ bearded grin. And of course, there’s also the mystique around the man himself, who likes to give dubious answers during interviews, casually dropping tidbits about owning a military tank, living in a converted bank vault, being able to control his dreams, or possessing the rare talent of synaesthesia – a sensory condition where one can hear colour, see sound, etc. And the fact that James once took a 13-year career hiatus where he practically disappeared from public view – right before his excellent Syro comeback in 2014 – only made his legend grow further.</p> <h3>The <em>COLLAPSE EP </em></h3> <p>And so the media rollout preceding Aphex Twin’s new Collapse EP was reliably intriguing, starting with a few trompe-l'œil <a href="https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/8467592/aphex-twin-logo-london-underground-new-music-photo" target="_blank">posters in subway stations</a>. Then came the cryptic press release, written in nonsense and featuring excellent passages such as “<em>Aphex Twin has served as the god of electronic crocheted linen doilies</em>” and “<em>Collapse EP yeah? is a fun water gathering. Apex [sic] spread the twin tails and succeeded in his early car</em>.” Well, can’t argue with that.</p> <p>A few days later, a music video premiere on TV network Adult Swim was ultimately scrapped after the song’s visuals failed an epilepsy test for strobing effects, to nobody’s surprise. The mind-melding “T69 Collapse” video, directed by artist Weirdcore, ended up being posted online instead and served as an appetizer for the <em>Collapse EP</em>.</p> <p>The track in question opens with a powerful syncopated percussive track that contrasts nicely with a gentle, intriguing melody. As the song keeps evolving, the accompanying video zips the viewer around in a virtual glitch town. Rich bass tones and woozy synth pads are introduced, accented by echoing rimshots that summon early Chicago house memories. We are now in familiar Aphex territory – a robust groove that is both beautiful and a tad worrisome. After a few minutes, the song suddenly screeches to a halt before doing a 180-degree turn: a jarring, awe-inducing percussive midsection takes center stage, one that stretches and compresses time while occasionally bashing your head in with flurries of hardcore kick drums. And it goes on for what seems like forever. Throughout all this, the visuals keep up with this madness, as weird graphical textures get mapped onto surreal, pulsating CGI landscapes. A picture of James’ own face gets horribly deformed in sync to the intricate drum patterns, and I’m instantly reminded me of Tetsuo’s ghastly fate near the ending of Akira. This is how an Aphex Twin video is supposed to feel.</p> <p>The song re-enters our atmosphere in its last third with a melancholic finale. The rhythm and soft melody return for a relatively soothing ending to this audiovisual trip. Laser-like vectors flash across the screen against a dark background; a smiley face appears for a half-second, perhaps as a nod to acid rave nostalgia, and suddenly it’s all over. The aftershock is overwhelming, like surviving a nuclear explosion. Once again, this time with help from designer Weirdcore, James has created yet another perfect audiovisual one-two punch, as he did in the ‘90s.</p> <p>But enough about the opening single – what about the rest of the EP? At five tracks (four on the vinyl version) and just under a half-hour, <em>Collapse</em> thankfully eschews the minute-long rap skit equivalents that encumbered Aphex’s recent EPs in favour of fully-fleshed songs.</p> <p>The 2nd track, “1st 44”, is built on a sort of half-time, slow/fast groove reminiscent of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Footwork_(genre)" target="_blank">American footwork</a>, which isn’t all that surprising since James has been known to play some footwork tracks in his live sets. In particular, Midwestern producer Jlin’s polyrhythmic influence can be felt not only here, but across the rest of the EP. It’s interesting to hear Aphex Twin work at a slower tempo – the track manages to feel both busy and spacious at the same time, a welcome respite from some of his more frantic modes. “1st 44” also winks at mid-90s drum’n’bass with a few well-placed vocal adlibs, vintage bleeps and old-school crash cymbals, without going into pastiche territory.</p> <p>The eerie, almost human-sounding synth that opens 3rd track “MT1 t29r2” is reminiscent of his seminal and often scary mid-‘90s period, and summons that familiar queasiness James is known for. The ensuing combination of stuttering beats and celestial melodies call to mind ex-labelmate Bogdan Raczynski’s best work, and the welcome addition of a warm bassline at the song’s midway point all make for an excellent track.</p> <p>“<em>Give me your hand, my friend, and I will lead you to the land of abundance, joy, and happiness</em>”, goes as spoken female voice sample on the next song, “abundance10edit [2 R8’s, FZ20m &amp; a 909]”. It’s pretty rare nowadays for Aphex Twin songs to contain actual, decipherable words. Any vocals on his recent albums are usually processed to the point where they become a sort of paste to be applied texturally on a track. But here, the sample is played straight. Later, however, the words “joy” and “happiness” are echoed, though this time modified to match the key of the melody. It’s a particularly affecting, human moment on the EP, especially in a genre that tends to lose itself in labyrinthine programming and technical flourishes. The track title’s mention of the pieces of equipment used – the Casio FZ20M, Roland TR-909 and R8, all released in the 1980’s – is interesting as well. For a record that sounds so state-of-the-art, it’s amazing to hear how James can somehow pull out modern sounds out of 30-year-old equipment and integrate them seamlessly to his contemporary productions. The lo-fi, crunchy handclaps are perhaps the song’s only giveaway.</p> <p>As mentioned, the digital, CD and cassette versions of the EP contain “phtex”, a fifth bonus track driven by rolling drums and squiggly lines of acid synthesizer. Under the high-bpm chaos at the forefront, minor key synth pads swell and fade in the background, sometimes cutting on and off abruptly with audible clicks – it’s these deliberate imperfections that make Aphex Twin’s music so special. It already seems to be a fan favourite too, as online forum users are already bitching about the track’s absence on the vinyl version.</p> <h3>Parting thoughts</h3> <p>An overarching characteristic of this EP is the structural inventiveness of each piece. Aphex Twin makes every single song on <em>Collapse</em> unpredictable, either by dropping a radical tempo shift mid-song, or by introducing a major new element in the last half or third of a piece’s runtime. Each of these compositions feature movements that are different from one another while still sounding like they belong to the same song. You’d be hard-pressed to find a section that becomes overly repetitive – and this is great news for those who are adverse to one of electronic music’s most maddening tendencies. On a technical standpoint, it’s amazing to see how, 3 decades into his career, Richard D. James still finds a way to evolve with the times while retaining his signature sound and sense of adventure.</p> <p>For neophytes, this EP can serve as a fine introduction to James’ work. <em>Collapse </em>simply has a ton to sift through, all in under a half-hour. It features many of Aphex Twin decades-old tropes – intricate percussion, haunting melodies, sheer unpredictability – while still having its feet firmly planted in today’s era. Highly recommended.</p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

La recherche d’un ailleurs dans sa démarche artistique nous séduit totalement. La première impression est bonne.</span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><strong><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span><span>Premier juin</span></span></span></strong><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span><span> est un album déjanté où l’auditeur se sent constamment dans l’invention puisque ses références musicales semblent venir d’une planète, hors de notre système solaire. Évidemment, cela n’empêche pas d’aborder des thématiques bien terriennes. Celle qui se voit comme une vieille poétesse du 19e siècle traite les sujets de la maladie mentale, les plaisirs charnels, la mort, l’enfance, la relation abusive avec un franc-parler et un langage admirablement affilé. </span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span><span>Il y a de la tragédie chez cette jeune artiste. Tel un puissant éveil de la conscience, elle nous partage sa vision du monde dans laquelle elle vit et observe soigneusement les détails. Espiègle, elle se livre avec une vigueur juvénile qui donne à l’ensemble une souveraineté vitaminée. </span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span><span>C’est dans un rock-électropop parfaitement assorti que sa proposition musicale reste brillamment oxygénée et accessible. Bien qu’elle puisse parfois danser autour de la piscine des conventions, elle n’y plonge jamais. Pas même un orteil. Elle ne fait que la surveiller afin sûrement de ne pas y tomber par inadvertance.</span></span></span></span></p> <p><strong><span><span lang="FR-CA" xml:lang="FR-CA"><span><span>Ce disque surprend et on aura rarement abordé le thème de mort avec autant de vitalité et de fougue.

This channel is a true “fly on wall” look into the music that inspired the debut album by MIEN. MIEN is Alex Mass (The Black Angels), Tom Furse (The Horrors), Rishi Dhir (Elephant Stone), and John Mark Lapham (The Earlies).</p> <h3><span><span><span><strong><span><span>Who is MIEN?</span></span></strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span><span><span>Put in a blender Elephant Stone’s Rishi Dhir (<strong>also our awesome Technical Writer at Stingray!</strong>), The Black Angels’ Alex Maas, The Horrors’ Tom Furse, and The Earlies’ John-Mark Lapham, and you get supergroup MIEN. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span><strong><span>Expansive and exploratory<span> songwriting</span></span></strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span><span class="size-normal">Since the release of their first single, “Black Habit,” we know the boys aren't messing around. There is nothing simple about the album, which is exactly what we can imagine MIEN was going for. </span></span></span></span><span><span><span><span><span>MIEN replaced (or augments) composition with improvisation, letting the unconscious mind take over in an instant and recording the results. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>They're not a jam band but rather a jam-and-edit band. Their method involved collectively improvising on little riffs and grooves at enormous length, and that’s exactly what you hear on <i><em>MIEN</em></i>. The quartet chopped up, layered and extensively reorganized pieces of their recordings, imposing afterthought on instinct to create something as densely packed as a composition but distinctly different.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-center"><span><span><span><span><span><span>"</span></span><i><em><span>This may have been a record put together at a distance - yet the chemistry between these four figures is manifest amidst a kaleidoscopic series of atmospheres and excursions whereby the fertile songwriting of the golden age of ‘60s psychedelia is transmitted into a transcendental realm above and beyond the second decade of the 21st century</span></em></i><span>.</span><span><span>" </span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-center"><strong><span><span><span><span><span><span class="tinytext">(Rocket Recordings’ MIEN Press Release, January 2018)</span></span></span></span></span></span></strong></p> <h3><span><span><span><strong><span><span>Eclectic psych-infused roots</span></span></strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span><span><span><span>The influential and forward-thinking quartet focuses on long, jam-heavy rock grooves. <i><em>MIEN</em></i> is ten songs in 40 minutes. The first half is bass heavy floor-fillers, the second half yanks the floor away. The rhythmic patterns, vocals, sitar, and everything else perfectly mesh together and add the perfect amount of tone color. (Yes, we’ve used the word perfect twice to emphasize how impressive <i>MIEN</i> is.) </span></span></span></span></span></span><span><span><span><span><span><span> </span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <h3><span><span><span><strong><span><span>An overwhelmingly impressive psychedelic joyride</span></span></strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span><span><span>Once you hit the fourth song "You Dreamt," <i><em>MIEN</em></i>’s trip turns dark and trembly. Combined with crisp yet heavy percussion, ambiguous and ominous noises, Maas’ voice conjures compelling and hazy images. This track stands as some of the most deeply reflective psychedelic music ever laid to tape.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>"Ropes," "Earth Moon," and "Black Habit" serve as the archetype of <em><i>MIEN</i></em>’s direction. "Earth Moon" opens with Rishi Dhir’s smooth sitar and Maas’ muffled voice, and gradually builds with flutes and sparse drumming. Fuzzed-out bass enters the fray, alongside light tones. Sounds are added so subtly that they almost become subliminal, sinking deeply into the folds of your brain without necessarily registering any kind of conscious reaction. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>Halfway into the album, "Hocus Pocus" offers layers of vocal harmony and lovely echoes. It's a near-perfect sonic approximation of sadness and beauty and without question one of the album's best moments.</span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>Another high point comes with "Other," the album's heart. The song has a strong undercurrent of philosophical reflection and melancholy and takes on a life of its own. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <h3><img src="/sites/blog/files/2018-03-estelle/0012338696_100.png" width="975" height="180" alt="0012338696_100.png" /></h3> <h3><span><span><span><strong><span><span>A cohesive and affecting album</span></span></strong></span></span></span></h3> <p><span><span><span><span><span>The record's closer, "Earth Moon (Reprise)," consists of the lyrics: “<i>On that lonely mountain, I saw him standing there / His eyes as wide as glaciers / Ice cold, full of fear / ‘I believe in Earth,’ he said / ‘You believe in moon / I believe you’re lonely because darkness swallowed you.’</i>”</span></span> </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>As the song fades out, reality slowly begins to creep back in. The sounds, words, and voices on <i><em>MIEN</em></i> linger as a memory, but not as a memory of an album. Bits and pieces of melodies refuse to leave you, and you find yourself listening to the record over and over again to see if the vaporous melodies are real, or just figments of your imagination. </span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span>MIEN's music is all around you, even if you've never actually heard it. The band has such a deep impact on psychedelic rock and experimental music that it's impossible not to have heard something that bears its fingerprints. Hit repeat and enjoy</span></span><span>. </span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><strong><span><span><span>P.S.

Why? That was the day <a href="http://haevnmusic.com/">HAEVN </a>presented the music of their debut album <em>Eyes Closed</em>: a wonderful combination of film music, electro-pop, and meaningful lyrics.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>It all started in 2015 when Dutch film composer Jorrit Kleijnen and singer-songwriter Marijn van der Meer were asked to create music for a car commercial. Their collaboration resulted in a beautiful song called <strong>“</strong>Where the heart is<strong>”</strong>. That same year, they released <strong>“</strong>Finding out more<strong>”</strong>, also for a car commercial. Both 30-second songs were listed on Shazam, which motivated them to work on tracks with Tim Bran, producer of London Grammar and Birdy.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>With the addition of a guitarist and drummer, the band was ready to conquer Dutch festivals! In 2016, they released <strong>“</strong>Bright Lights<strong>”</strong> and became an international success! Being very critical of their own work, they had a rough time finishing tracks for their debut album coming out this May. Their latest single <strong>“</strong>Fortitude<strong>”</strong> is also featured on Netflix’s <i>Riverdale</i>.  </span></span></p> <p> </p> <h3><span><span><strong>The Show</strong></span></span></h3> <p><span><span>Accompanied by a beautiful string quartet, their new tracks were spot on and played perfectly. The crowd was silent during the entire concert and whenever someone would talk too loudly they would be shushed. A heavenly vibe was created by the beautiful voice of Marijn, the fragile sound of the string quartet, and the church-like décor of Paradiso. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>This emotional vibe resonated most when Marijn played his guitar on <strong>“</strong><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_pwkXSI0P8">Other Side of the Sea<strong><span><span>”</span></span></strong></a><strong>; </strong>a big contrast with some new songs that were a bit more up-tempo and danceable. </span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong><span><span>All in all, this was a varied concert with a perfect overall vibe, great music, and moments to remember.
