Tri Repetae

This is when things started to go full robot. Mechanical mutations with driving rhythmic percussive shudderings, synthetic melodies fight alongside scrathed synths. 

Opener 'Dael' is a prime example of this, pulling jungle drum loops click around the stereo field, fighting warped vocal samples and distorted thuds then slow down into clear-cut basses and reverberated gleaming melodies. 'Leterel' is a thumping and dystopian joy-ride through neon far-futures, full of robotic hordes and gloomy social undercurrents. 'Rotar' gives glimpses of standard rhythmic structures and sane melodic flourishes, acting as a sort of relief before the anthemic techno-funk of 'Stud'.

'Eutow' is fittingly, quite the antithesis of this, a high-passed static filled percussive piece laiden meaningfully but sparsely with 1/2 time bass swirls and solar-flare squeals.  

By the end of Tri Repetae, the robotic hordes have invariably come forth, bringing with them scraps of decimated drum machines and fractured near-melodies. It's not easy being a robot but at least they have their theme tune.

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: The third in the most recent trilogy of reissues, and almost definitely the most characteristic sound we have come to know and love from Autechre. Glitchy, beautiful and devastating.
