Hey, Essay

That time of year again, when it comes to essay writing I get real specific when it comes to selecting tunes, most of the time anything with lyrics unless I've heard it a ton just distracts me. And cliche though it may be I usually resort to my usual warp-centric experimental electronic.

El Lissitsky - Proun 1C (1919)

Leading the charge is another piece from μ-Ziq I usually skip cos it's always at the top of my alphabetical list. Lunatic Harness may not get as much press as tunes from AFX and the like but its's just as sweet. The album might peter out towards the end but it has killer tunes like this to back it up.

If you've not checked out Wisp's reworkings of Aphex Twin's legedary Selected Ambient Works Vol. II I highly recommend it, he takes the original vibe and completely reworks it into something a little more like AFX's usual output. Here's a two in one reworking of Z Twig and Blue Calx.

And finally bringing it all back down, a lush ambient piece from Autechre. I'm missing out on some lovely ambient pieces just 'cos I don't really like the direction they took post Tri Repetae, but what I do have of their ambient work is nothing short of sublime.
