Classic Tracks 1.0: AFX-Analog Bubblebath 1

Alex Calhoun —  March 18, 2009 — Leave a comment

I have been rediscovering my vinyl lately, man I forgot some of the great stuff that’s been gathering dust. The first one that really came to mind was some super classic Richard D. James. Someone bought this record for me when I was like 17, and I instantly fell i love with it. Analog Bubblebath is hard to explain, it’s not quite techno, but it’s a blissed out electronic journey where you can hear the synth bubbles float by and pop one by one. I always thought this track was one kick drum away from being dance floor worthy, but it’s definitely one of my all time favorite chiller tracks. The other tracks, Isopropoplex on the A side, Entrance to Exit and AFX 2 on the B side, are more abstract, harder, and noisier, but awesome none the less. Its not as weird and out there as later Aphex Twin stuff, but any fan of Mr. James’ music will not be disappointed.
