MP3: Autechre – “FACT Magazine Mix”
For electronic music boffins, the announcement that Autechre will be coming to Australia this month, is the equivalent of telling the congregators at Comic-Con that Leonard Nimoy will be popping in for a chat. The U.K. duo of Sean Booth and Rob Brown are the pioneers of pretty much everything that loops and hisses and goes “whirr” and “bleep”.
Autechre’s latest (tenth!) album, ‘Oversteps’, shows that the pair are still something to marvel at; morphing mundane noises into moody, occult soundscapes, and if it were no big thing. But what nobody denies is big, is that Civil Society are bringing the pair to Australia for the first time in 15 years.
To celebrate, Autechre are offering this freely downloadable, 60 minute mix! Originally available from FACT Magazine, the mix highlights Autechre’s signature eclecticism: Raekwon, Venetian Snares, J. Dilla, Stephen Mallinder, Ultramagnetic MCs, and more (full tracklist here).
