Superflat Single #51 / Tachikoma vs. [710W3]

New Era (dub)Lately I've heard Tachikoma mention two major collaborations between the two of us: The Malchiks and the new up and coming Audiotoy. We have been a part of many cool collaborations including this bloglabel, a number of smaller musical projects, the name of my first born etc... but there has been a new collaboration that Tach may have just realized has happened.
The first official collaboration between two Blips and Ifs producers. Of course there was always that Cheese Richards and Milk Jagger thing. Even thought the Boats and I made that track together, it wasn't officially released as The Boats and [710W3]. So I'm not going to count that one or any of the DAT mining either. Therefore this is the first official collaboration. On December 14th 2006 Tachikoma emailed a Reason music file to me. Making sure we can actually send files between his computer to mine. He was just working the bugs out of operating a Worldwide Blog Label. Little did he know that to his track I added a 'distinctive angst filled [710W3] feeling' to some of the classic glitchy dub sounds of Tachikoma. Maybe not as significant a collaboration as the Malchiks, the creation of this label, the very First Audiotoy or Superflat Single, but an awesome mix of two very different producers none the less.

It's the first pulsating album cover too. Look closely!

OK, i just listened to this track for the first time. I'll update Moil's comments by adding that I made the basis of this track during one of my lunch breaks, using a kick drum from an old drum machine and some slices from an old dub track.

What I heard when I downloaded this was the addition of pure digital moil angst. You can practically feel his anti-McDonalds rage poking into your eardrums. The unmistakable bright cold bitterness of the Malstrom is apparent. And the overall minor chord sadness combines with Moil's rage to give us an... INDUSTRIAL track!?!?!?!? I know, crazy, right? few people would describe [710W3] or Tachikoma as industrial artists... although I did like Pretty Hate Machine... but whatever... it is what it is!!!

Sorry also I have to add more.

1. It's too short moil!! next time drag it out longer... i'm listening to it on Loop mode on my mp3 player. although It's usually Me who submits 1.4 min tracks...

2. I never saw that Malchiks page you linked to in your post. I checked it out. The review of ASC3 is funny... "lonely rudie" is a real clunker... maybe. If only we'd added a DISTORTED MALSTROM!!! that woulda solved the problem!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

I would agree with Tach I wish it were longer! so the angst was more drawn out. But I like it very much. Have either of you heard The Burial? Here is a review of their last record.

sorry I don't know how to make those click able links! I think this track comes very close to what they do.
