RX-101 s 2016 debut receives a much-needed repress. An exciting introduction to RX-101 s treasure trove of vintage-Rephlex-style electronics
Suction Records is excited to unleash the first in a series of extensive archival releases by a new artist, bedroom producer RX-101. This previously unreleased material dates from 1997 -1999, recorded live to cassette in a feverish burst of creativity, utilizing a small arsenal of classic techno tools inc uding the Roland TR-808, TB-303, Juno-106, and his beloved SH-1 01. What's astonishing about RX-101 is the sheer volume of diverse and stunning material recorded in just 2 years. Fans of Aphex Twin’s Analogue Bubblebath and Caustic Window series will rejoice in the authentic early-90s Rephlex-ian burst of "EP 1.” From the eerie, isolationist-rave stomp of opener “Tunnel,” to the emotive, primitive electronica of “Bloom(pt.1),” through to the majestic, ambient melodicism of closer “If I Could Ever Get...,” the 6 tracks found on “EP 1” serve as an exciting introduction to RX-101’ s treasure-trove of vintage Rephlex-style electronics.
