  1. New track, largely composed algorithmically (with some useful mixing advice from @astralprojection): https://soundcloud.com/incompetron/revenge-of-the-eternal-anglo All feedback gratefully received.
  2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFhSJ1KLd3k

  4. Autechre's four-hour-long elseq 1-5 absolutely kills it. Very little is on YouTube, sadly.

  6. I'm not sure what you mean. One person (you) voted for it in the uptempo category and two people (Jon Cocco and Drosophila) voted for it in the downtempo category, so I put it in both. This happens with a few releases most years, and my policy is to treat each of them as two separate albums.

  9. Up to you. I'll close the thread and count votes sometime this evening. For now: UPTEMPO: 1: Kindzadza - I'd Like You to be a Mind Reader (Osom Music) 2: Morphic Resonance - The City of Moons (Suntrip Records) DOWNTEMPO: 1: James Murray - Eyes to the Height (Ultimae Records) 2: Khooman - Upheaval (Darkapuggla) I bought very little psytrance last year.
  10. Finally got round to watching The Dark Knight the other day. Really don't get why people like the Nolan Batman movies, his version of the character just sucks.
  11. This is bloody great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5U9577N-dQ
  12. Weird. The other day it said 3 million. When I look now it says 1.8 million.
  13. I didn't like some of the samples you used but otherwise this was great! Is the last minute supposed to be silent?
  14. Very nice, if somewhat short. Maybe you could make it longer and have it built to more of a climax?
  15. @TuTuMan, I think. That's @gemini (and possibly @Pavane behind her).

  17. The thread title says "worst", not "best".

    NHJO

    This track was actually my introduction to NHJO. Does it still exist on the tubes? I'd like to hear it again for the nostalgiulz.
  19. For anyone not aware, this album has recently been repressed on Vinyl along with Incunabula and Tri Repetae: link
  20. Yep, it's much easier if I just let people categorise stuff how they see fit.
  21. You know the drill: it's time to vote for your favourite uptempo and downtempo psy albums of 2016. You can vote for up to 10 releases (including albums, compilations, EP's and singles) in each category; your first will be awarded 10 points, your second 9, and so on. Cast your vote by replying to this thread with your votes written in the following format (the label is optional, but if you can be bothered to put it in it will make counting votes easier): Uptempo: 1: Artist - Title (label) 2: Artist - Title (label) 3: Artist - Title (label) 4: Artist - Title (label) 5: Artist - Title (label) 6: Artist - Title (label) 7: Artist - Title (label) 8: Artist - Title (label) 9: Artist - Title (label) 10: Artist - Title (label) Downtempo: 1: Artist - Title (label) 2: Artist - Title (label) 3: Artist - Title (label) 4: Artist - Title (label) 5: Artist - Title (label) 6: Artist - Title (label) 7: Artist - Title (label) 8: Artist - Title (label) 9: Artist - Title (label) 10: Artist - Title (label) The voting will be open until the end of February, or rather when I get round to locking the thread (hopefully I won't go awol for another four months). If you change your mind after voting, don't make a new post - just edit your existing post. Also, if you reply to a post in this thread then please remove any votes from the quoted material (I will be copying and pasting the thread into an automatic vote-counting doohickey, so if votes appear twice they may be counted twice).
  22. I feel like this might be a Hux Flux or Logic Bomb track but I can't think what...
