    maybe someone had a thread about him before, but its gone now..

    the guy is a genius, and the compositions he creates are some of the most next level shit you will ever hear...

    if you dont get goosebumps after hearing songs like "on," "alberto balsalm" or "girl/boy song" then you arent human...

    what are all your favorite songs? anyone have the opportunity to have ever seen him live?

    oh yea, i saw him live a few years back, it was pretty much the most insane show i ever saw. he was lying on the stage looking into his laptop(mind you this was before the huge craze to use laptops live)all relaxed whilst the most incredibly loud earsplitting noise morphed into the most utterly insanely beautiful melody and sickest breaks ever......i have a couple of his live performances on minidisc too.
    the only other show that was on par was autechre.....they were fuckin' way too insane as well.

    yea, he has way too much shit, but alot of it isn't that great, just becuz its
    rare or whatever....
    his old stuff tends to be really 4 to the floor techno crap, which i
    personally am not a fan of. for me he started to get really interesting after
    i care becuz you do.....just a personal preference, i still love his first album.
    i had gak, hangable autobulb, etc.etc.etc....but they and about $6000 worth of other shit got scammed last summer from the storage locker i had. weak.

    this chick i used to live with met him at a club in london about 2years ago.
    no super greasy details to speak of, he was nice, they
    bullshatted for 2 seconds, over.
    its funny how alot of breakbeat shit and 'electronica' stuff is now catching up with the shit he did in 97 in terms of micro-editing, melodies etc.....

    yamatsuka eye is one of my favourite persons to read about/listen to.
