4.0 out of 5 stars Politically Correct?, 15 Mar 2004
This review is from: Anti (Audio CD)
Do you remember the days when you still had the right to remain silent after having been arrested for breaking into a warehouse and dancing the night away to thumping techno? If you do then this is the CD for you.
This 3-track EP came out in September '94, 2 months before their second album 'Amber' and was probably recorded at around the same time. The first 2 tracks 'Lost' and 'Djarum' are in a similar vein to that album and certainly wouldn't have sounded out of place on it. It's the third track 'Flutter' where things get most interesting.
'Flutter' was conceived so that none of the bars repeated the same rhythmic pattern, in order to get round the then Tory government's Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill, which defined Techno and House as music containing repetitive beats. Although in comparison with recent Autechre releases this one sounds pretty tame it could be seen as the precursor to the drill 'n' bass style of recent albums by the Aphex Twin and Squarepusher, as well as Autechre's own way out rhythmic excursions.
If you're an Autechre fan but you haven't bothered with the EPs then you've been missing out on a big part of their development, and this one especially is a milestone in their career.
