Autechre - EPs 1991 - 2002

Beauty from chaos
autechre-EPs.jpg
From their beginnings as graffiti-inspired technoheads to staking their place at the forefront of electronic innovation, Autechre have broken more boundaries over the last two decades than any other act we can think of. Their best trick lies in creating beauty from chaos. Auditory fractal patterns are spurned on through generative algorithms and architectural ingenuity. Indeed, listening to Booth & Brown can often feel like observing an impossible structure - mindbendingly complex yet devastatingly beautiful in places. Newcomers will have to retune their ears with every sequential EP in this mammoth collection. So it would be wise to digest one release at a time to reap the most of its many rewards.
