RX-101’s 2016 debut EP receives a much-needed repress. From the original press release:
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 including the Roland TR-808, TB-303, Juno-106, and his beloved SH-101. 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.
