interim_descriptor – IDM mix with tons of sweet tunes

A few days ago I recieved an IDM mix in my mail box. This sweet mix is made by interim_descriptor from San Francisco, US and it consists of many of my favorite IDM tunes. You can download it as a mp3 mix or a ogg version where the tunes are split.
interim_descriptor has made this mix with a piece of software he has written from scratch. The software is using an M-Audio Xponent as a MIDI controller. Once it is ready he wants to make the software open source for everyone.

I love getting tips on new mixes and releases so please contact me if you have some information. For reviews I prefer a full version of the release.

New release on Rephlex: The Tuss – Rushup Edge CAT189

Rumor is that this release on Rephlex is work from Aphex Twin himself.There is already an EP
out called Confederation Trough EP. You can listen to the tracks on boomkat and decide yourself what to believe…

Here is what warpmart got to say about the EP:
“We don’t know for sure either, but it looks and sounds like the work of our favorite Analord. There were rumours that it’s two French guys, and then the press information says it’s some bloke called Gary with a very Cornish surname, who XL and Ninja Tune wanted to sign, but somehow much smaller label Rephlex signed him, hmm….

But the problem with all this is, it couldn’t sound anymore like Richard D. James if he shouted ‘My name is Richard D. James and I wrote this’ over the top.

Anyway, it’s very good, 3 strong tracks in three different styles, in keeping with the analord analogue instrumentation but with a bit more abstraction.”
