IKIMASHO! YOUTUBE SESSIONS: D’ARCANGELO REPHLEX SPECIAL

IMG_20141108_011825

Thanks for the memories. The Braindance pioneers pick their top 10 Rephlex tracks.

When Grant Wilson-Claridge and Richard D. James started Rephlex Records back in 1991 I don’t think either of them could have imagined the journey it would take them on. The sheer quality and diversity of the label’s catalog makes it one of the most important – and respected – imprints in electronic music. Now, two decades later – and with over 200 releases under its belt – Rephlex has closed up shop. But while trading may have ceased, the legacy continues.

One of the last Rephlex albums to contain a CAT# code was D’Arcangelo’s Audiovisual Designs. The Italian duo had been a staple on the Rephlex roster right from the early days, so I thought it would be nice to ask Marco to pick ten of his favourite tracks from the Rephlex catalog. His picks – as well as a few words about Japan – are below. Braindance <3.

“Never been to Japan ourselves but we think that it is a window to the future. We admire the sense of commitment and strong community, not to mention the huge technology innovation that is now part of most people’s everyday life. Someday, in the near future, a musical instrument with very high performance will be developed, in which advanced science technology and industrial power are highly utilized.”

  1. Great post mate. Really been meaning to listen to more of these guys. Love the bochum welt track. D’Arcangelo diagram vii was one of my favourite tracks of that braindance album. Love the 303 sound in the welt track. Pure welt. I think it’s cool these guys are contributing to the blog and most of the people have been really helpful. Keep up the good work jar.

  2. Cheers man, yeah all that crew have been super nice – really enjoy featuring them. Impossible task to pick 10 favourites to be fair, though if it was me Wisp – Hidebehind would be on there for sure, one of my favs definitely.
