Album Review

Autechre – “Basscadet Mxs ” – [Tvt Records]

Thurston Hunger   5/29/2006   A Library, CD

’94 remixes from the first/only single off
the Incunabula cd. AUdio TEchnical REsearch.
Would Pan Sonic and Pole have happened w/o
Autechre? I’m only asking…check with
Goodwrench or Toni Rumori if you want the
answer. Remember Artificial Intelligence
collections, ever unweary machines pummell
us fleshtrons into submission. Great
“klungs” and “pings” and synthcymbals
coupled with sweeps of floodlight string
impersonators. First cut is sticky viscuous.
#2 portrays happiness for meat grinders.
#3 is Mark Clifford deftly applying his
“SeeFeel”, 3+ minutes of life-support
tension dropping to just a stark drumbot,
and then back to drone paradox. Throaty
#4 is Beaumont Hannant, I guess this is
representative of that “Intelligent Dance
Floor” tweakery with squeeze-toy faux(?’)
turntable wheels spinning? Stong finish
with a La Brea Tar Dub. Stark mechanical
machine language from the 90’s.
