“An iconic UK duo craft a hip-hop mix.
There’s never been a better time to be an Autechre fan. Just last month, Rob Brown and Sean Booth gave away two hours worth of cuts recorded between 1989 and 1993 that sounded disturbingly of the times given dance music’s current mania for bleep and hardcore techno-adjacent sounds. Then there was the dump of zip folders containing all the performance data and samples for their live sets circa-2008, giving producers as big an insight into their methods as they’ve ever had. That’s not to mention the huge archive of live sets they released in February, which offered a sprawling view of their range and welcome documentation of them really letting loose.
In under five years, they’ve released somewhere in the region of 42 hours of music (that’s not including the 13 hours of videos that were out in the wild last year). The crazy thing is how little of it is redundant. The conspicuous rise in generosity has been matched by the quality of their work, which is better than it’s ever been. Although fans of their earlier material will heartily disagree—to be fair, there are a lot of them—last year’s NTS Sessions felt like decades of research had come to fruition. Perhaps the most shocking part was that, despite running eight hours long, it never got boring.
RA.687 is another matter altogether. Here, Booth and Brown return to their love of old school hip-hop, delivering a chilled 45 minutes of breaks and rhymes, running through the likes of MC Shan, Audio Two and Super Lover Cee & Casanova Red.”
