Bitch, better have my plocks.


#43

Rad. Is Anti worth a listen?


#44

Well, I’ll be damned!


#45

I didn’t realise Sophie produced on Anti at all. Anyone know which tracks?

The Charli XCX EP he did is phenomenal though. One of my favourite releases of last year.


#46

Hm, Work sounds like it could have a bit of :elmm: on it.


#47

Yes.


#48

Is that Vroom Vroom?


#49

Maybe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrImkpMvpo0


#50

Yes. I really, really rate it. Though most people I’ve raved about it to have hated it, haha. I don’t think many Charli XCX fans liked it.

The title track has some fierce :elmm: FM machine business happening.


#51

I honestly don’t really know who Rihanna is (I mean, I know the name and that she’s some big pop star, but I’m blissfully out of the loop), but I have an unreasonable amount of love for SOPHIE, so I’ll have to check this out. Nice find, OP!

Elektron, I still think it would be amazing if you would follow up the SOPHIE interview you did a few years back (which I blame for turning me onto him) with a more in-depth exploration into how he uses the Monomachine for his music.


#52

Just listened, really enjoyable in a reckless pop way. Put her older album on after and it doesn’t have the same satisfying sheen.


#53

It;s a shame she wasnt playing around with her vocals on an MPC Live…!


#54

Have you heard her?
I think her approach to sound design is incredible.
Also the most creative approach to MnM i have heard


#56

So good. Can’t wait for a second album.


#57

Yeah, so amazing. She’s quickly surpassing Autechre as my favourite sound designer… which is a big call for me.


#58

Pretty sure Sophie is a bloke


#59

nah, she came out as trans at the end of last year


#60

Wonder how much MnM she uses in her trax?
Sounds great


#61

For live sets uses cdj and monomachine only, and you can see all the weird clang/glup/sci-fi comes from the mono
