Autechre bring angular machine music to the masses, celebrating their album Quaristice on Warp Records. This unfeasibly popular duo take the sounds of Todd Terry, Mantronik and Kraftwerk, jam them through corrupted hardware, bringing Cage and Stockhausen to the dancefloor. With support from Sheffield’s clicks n’ cuts funk duo SND and Rob Hall of Gescom and Manchester’s legendary Skam label.
Autechre are an English electronic music duo consisting of Rob Brown and Sean Booth. Formed in 1987, they are one of the most prominent acts signed to Warp Records, a label known for its pioneering electronic music and through which all Autechre albums have been released. While heavily associated with IDM (intelligent dance music), their music has shown a gradual shift in aesthetic throughout their career, from their earlier work with clear roots in techno, electro and hip hop to later albums that are often considered experimental in nature, featuring complex patterns of rhythm and subdued melodies.
