Aix is a 2009 era album by Italian electronic composer Giuseppe Ielasi which contained several short form textural pieces some sounding like West Coast jazzy grooves some sounding like loops from Tortoise records in miniature. It originally only got a CD release but is now re-issued on vinyl as part of Keplar's series of vinyl editions of essential electronic records.

Cor, this thing feels classy as soon as you get it in your mits. Nice card stock for both inner and outer sleeves, artwork that you could look at all day.. Just what you want when you've just got to have a fondle. It's not like the sounds aren't enough to keep your interest either, far from it in fact, their electro-acoustic improv cleverness kept short and to the point for the duration of the record. Exactly what the fella's process is I'm not sure, but it sounds as though he takes recordings of acoustic instruments and samples them into satisfying and frequently complex little grooves which take in a range of styles: some sound like looped West Coast cool jazz in their laid back smoothness, some of the more processed and abstract cuts are reminding us of To Rococco Rot and there's definitely more than a touch of Tortoise at their most experimental at various points. Nice one, like.
