- A TAV Essential Listening Album -

While Autechre is remembered today as one of the vanguards on the bleeding edge of IDM during the mid-1990s, it’s important to note that their first two albums were rather conventional. Though excellent, Incunabula and Amber were rooted to the English duo’s techno and electro upbringing. In contrast, their third album Tri Repetae presented a paradigm shift, signalling Rob Brown and Sean Booth’s transition into Warp’s pantheon of experimental trailblazers alongside Aphex Twin and Squarepusher. 

Tri Repetae found the production pairing diving deep into glitch and noise - complementing their ambient, breakbeat, and techno expertise with more intricate, minimal and spacious patterns. The result was a series of industrial soundscapes punctured by twisted metal and alien frequencies. Tri Repetae is where Autechre’s legend truly begins, and it remains as revelatory today as it was in 1995. - The Analog Vault


Tri Repetae, the third album from Autechre finally made available again on vinyl, having been out of print on vinyl since 2001. On reflection, Tri Repeate stands tall as one of the most out-there (and if you know what that means...) and boundary-pushing releases from Ae ever. Going back to the group's roots as b-boy's, Tri Repetae features ten variations on street sounds from hip-hop and techno to industrial and jungle.

Released at a time when producers were ripe with ideas for cosmic breakbeat experimentation, Tri Repetae mixed the glitchy twisted dynamics of EPs such as the criminal justice bill protest Anti and sculpted a long player that resembles some of the most 'floor friendly' Ae to ever grace a packed nightclub soundsystem. The ten tracks pulled influence from previous outings, from the glacial Amber chug of Overand to the Incunabula acid of Leterel. But the overall sound is one of mixing influence from the avant-garde of Iannis Xenakis, Edgard Varese & Tod Dockstar with the mid 90's post-hardcore sound of jungle. — (via Bleep)
