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 to 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.
Who is RX-101 and why haven't these tracks seen the light of day until now? We’re not going to answer that just yet but let’s talk a little bit about the material. 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. Stay tuned!
