- Rushup Edge by The Tuss
9/10 Mingus Staff review, 21 June 2007In the absence of our man Ant, whose laying low with a tummy bug (get well soon kid) I've got the pleasure of announcing our album of the week. Norman's honour of the week goes to The Tuss aka Karen Tregaskin with "Rushup Edge" (Rephlex). It said to be the work of one Richard D James/Aphex Twin and on listening who could doubt it? Classic 'braindance' as the Rephlex massive would have it. Expertly controlled analogue tweaks-ace keyboard lines intertwined with bubbling b-lines and the kind of having-it aphex-acid only the man James could conjure up. It's not just the sounds, but the attention to the detail of where each string sweep is placed, where the next percussive fill is added, and for me, when the carefully executed break drop and melody line appears. Some other sounds and placements/edits/manipulation defy catergorisation and it's this that makes this set stand head and shoulders over many works of modern day pop. I'm not gonna go on about Cornish independence, fanboys and internet chat room bollocks just for the sake of it, all you need to know is that this is a quality electronic record produced by a modern day pioneer who knows as much about tweaking butts on a dancefloor as much as the hard/software he uses to execute such scene destroying sounds. If you thrilled to the Analord series and salivate over most Rephlex material then you're already sold on it. In fact its rudimentary to say that this'll piss out and it's de rigeur (obviously obvious) to make this recording of the week. Fanboy burial indeed!
8/10 George Customer review, 6th August 2014
I bought this album because I was led to believe - from other websites - that it was an Aphex Twin release. If it isn't him it's a very good impression of his work. There are some very familiar sounding synths in there. The programming sounds very familiar as well. The sounds, the programming, the production, the creativity: it all reeks of Richard James. And even if it isn't him, I'd sure he'd approve. It's a worthy tribute. Whether it's him or not, it's a very good album and worth investing in.
8/10 The Probe Customer review, 15th June 2007I've not heard the release yet, but I know where Rushup Edge is located... I've been there. And the picture on the cover confirms that... I'm curious to hear this release. There are many Aphex wannabe's though, so who knows if it really is by him or not...
10/10 aeioux schemata Customer review,
It IS Aphex2 of the tracks he has played within his own DJ sets in the last 3 yearsThere may be 1 other person involvedbut that is the last small rumour to be quashed - personally think its just Mr.Jamesit's still bloody good, a continuation of the Analord Series but wit a bit more PUNCH, some Drukqs sounds popping through to help us trainspotters spot him clearlygoodbye rute is very special indeedan early version of rushup I bank 12 was played in italy 2005still rocks my world
