// aphasein: Rebuild EP’s Set 2
Happy 8/08 Day! Today sees the release of the second set of rebuilt EP’s (and one single), and covers the remaining material that had been combined into album-size packages when originally released. This wraps up most of the Rebuild of aphasein, and presents them in their original intended form as they were written. We figured this was a good opportunity to break them down to their initial state. All of the tracks were recently re-output raw and un-mastered showing their full dynamics and textures (or as close as possible given that some of the tracks can’t be played from their source any longer).
‘Atmospheric_Shift‘ focuses on tracks about the four seasons, while ‘Sechspunktvonhell‘ is based on the theme of stars and are most of the few songs written on the Amiga 2000, which allowed for bigger samples and song size. The standalone single ‘Smokering’n‘ is also from the Amiga 2000 and has always stood apart since creation, with ‘Second Hand Smoke‘ being a long-time favorite. ‘Nein‘ is based on the brief stint making songs in the program Acid in ’99, and are the only tracks that feature an updated mix, with ‘Bubblegum Tofu 2‘ featuring a brand new live playthrough of its samples as its original sequencing was lost. All releases have high-quality PDFs of redone album art. Enjoy.
