Hailing from Rochdale, Manchester Rob Brown and Sean Booth started out back in the early nineties making squelchy electro under the name Lego Feet releasing one LP in 1991 on Andy Maddocks Skam label, with a change in name and style Autechre found themselves snuggled up nicely with the Artificial Intelligence ambient electronic scene alongside the likes of Aphex Twin, The Black Dog, B12 and The Future Sound Of London and on their debut LP on Warp Records Incunabula started a brilliant and varied journey through electronic experimentation.
The first few releases for Autechre had their music pinned to a more straightforward moody atmospheric style that would often be heard in the chill-out rooms of dance clubs of the early to mid nineties but Rob and Sean were soon to start experimenting with a much harsher glitchy sound, Tri Repetae and Chiastic Slide while still retaining a very limited amount of danceable rhythms were starting to reveal a more sound art approach to Autechre's music and by 2001's Confield their records were beginning to resemble a drum machine being hurled down a large flight of stairs, interesting but sometimes hard to swallow for the uninitiated fan. Autechre still to this day make extremely experimental and difficult but always enjoyable electronic music never compromising their original vision or their power to shock and inspire.

The third installment of Autechre’s live sessions for online radio station NTS brings another two hours of new music from the constantly evolving duo. Part three sees a wide selection of the duo’s styles from the chromatic shiftings of glos ceramic to the fantastically maniacal tt1pd that brings you...view item
The fourth and final installment of Autechre’s sessions from their residency for NTS radio. With each session bringing 2 hours of new music, Session 4 acts almost like a digital palette cleanser, with the first half taking four tracks of minimal glitchy dronescapes they close with a huge wash of dense drone in an ...view item
Number two in the series of four of Autechre’s live sessions for London/Manchester based online radio station NTS brings two further hours of fresh music from the shapeshifting duo. In full glitching IDM mode for the opening of this one, from the outset they move from the speedy micro beat shifting of elyc9 7hres ...view item
In April 2018 electronic wizards Autechre went into online radio station NTS and broadcast a series of sessions of unheard music which were then released digitally to critical acclaim. Now you can buy them physically either as separate LPs or here an an enormous 12 LP box set or 8CD set. A vast an extensive collection which has ...view item
If you can't afford the enormous box set you can also get Autechre's stunning NTS Sessions in bite sized chunks. The long running electronica greats issued a swathe of new music via a stint on the NTS online radio station back in April 2018. Now you can get it on vinyl and this is the first instalment. ...view item
Fatz here with stuff to write about. Firstly Autechre then. Brand new CD and
double vinyl. It starts off reasonably accessible and it even gets your hopes up
that Autechre have made an album that won't take 100 listens to get into.
However the lads have cunningly tricked us cos after a few tracks you start to
wonder what on eart...view item
I forget these Mancunian rhythm benders started off with a thumping hardcore tune under their belt - 'Cavity Job', here presented in digital for the first time! - In much the way some of Aphex's early career was built on shredding people's synapses with bursts of industrial strength techno, this is a sweaty banger but more inclined toward a pre-...view item
Chiastic Slide is a pretty important album in the evolution of Autechre, mixing elements of their previous work, notably 'Amber' and the 'Garbage EP' mixed in to sonic hints of the direction they would take in the future. The flow of the album is interesting in that a mellow track would follow a heavier, more industrial sounding track which woul...view item
Oberman Knocks / Autechre
The Oberman Knocks original is a really chilled electronic dreamscape bristling with processed field recordings, otherworldly vocals and glistening electronics. It’s a slow motion trip of ethereal ambient, augmented with bass and slight synthetic drums. All tranquil chilled and quite pleasant.
Electronica legends Rob Brown and Sean Booth are back with their 11th long player and an extremely “long player” it is; clocking in at over two and a half hours it’s a pretty heavy listen! Over the last twenty years or so they have churned out some interesting works, some good and some not so good but this is real winner from s...view item
Rob and Sean are back with this little EP/mini album ‘L-Event’, a direct follow up to their hugely successful album ‘Exai’ with the cover artwork being of similar style. Four tracks in just over 26 minutes of Autechre’s usual brand of juddering, urgent electronica, it seems that after ...view item
Wooo! Reissue of Autechre’s first full length album on Warp. Backed with a digital download code and a bonus live set. Probably one of the most “straight up” forms of these guys, but it’s still so very mad, pushes techno right out the window. Can’t imagine these will gather much dust. If you lot don...view item
The new Autechre single (Gantz Graf) is here on CD, 12" and CD/DVD pack.
The DVD features 3 videos including a new video version of Bad Vibel by
Chris Cunningham. Initially I thought this was awful, just random
bits of noise but as ever with Autechre if you stick at it there's
Possibly the first Autechre album that Autechre fans might have even hated, but along with Draft 7.30, they go hand in hand and are absolute gems. This is possibly rougher on the ears, and definitely gnarlier, especially for its time (2001), but it's also a massive indicator of where they would go leading up to Exai which is arguably one of the ...view item
This came as quite a surprise... Having not released anything for a while the Oversteps record arrived and I was sort of expecting silence for a while, certainly not what is basically another albums worth of material on CD and two different 12"s. It's a fine selection and a reasonably varied set of tracks that begins with an opener that straddle...view item
Music's all gone a bit pleasant hasn't it? Especially the electronica
scene. Seems everyones after that lucrative car ad. Well its good to see
Autechre aren't pandering to the coffee table culture. This new record
of theirs is virtually impenetrable. Anyway its out now on Warp.
The usual mangled...view item
Whoa there big boy, these lads just flipped ya. Flipped ya for real. And by the time this album's over they'll have flipped ya again. It fades in from complete silence and for the majority of the first half of the LP it's a thing of wondrous and surprisingly immediate beauty, with gorgeously icy synth washes laid over beats that are as straightforw...view item

Now for some stuff that Warp probably deemed unworthy of release at the time but are trying to convince us its some sort of hidden treasure... Lets see what 'Unheard' has to offer... It kicks off the Boards of Canada's 'Seven Forty Seven' which is actually a sweet track. I cant imagine any BOC fan rejecting this as useless twoddle. Plaid do their s...view item

Various (Aphex Twin, Autechre, Boards of Canada etc.)
Warp Records were (and for many folks still are) in terms of cutting edge electronic music an institution, and they're currently celebrating the 20 years of their existence with a super lavish box set. But for those who simply want the meat of new material and a few oldies there are standard CD editions of 'Warp20 (Chosen') and also 'Warp20 (recrea...view item
Warp's Autechre re-issue series continues with this their first proper full length album (the earlier Incunabula was in fact a compilation of demos). This one contains some of their most ambient moments as well as forging forward the cut and paste beats and deep acid and techno hinted at on Incunabula. Ess...view item
Tri Repetae is the third album by legendary British electronic duo Autechre. The album is considered one of the best and most influential electronic albums of the '90s and first showcases the way in which the duo combined totally different elements of dance music such as jungle and industrial and blended them into...view item
Autechre: 'Quaristice' (Warp)I've been excited by the event that is the new Ae album since just about when 'Untilted' started to make sense to me. Well at least until the electronic engineering began to fuse something inside my brain...that something remains as unfathomable as attempting to describe what Ae mean to the larger music c...view item
