    Autechre : Incunabula (1993)

    First listen...

    Bike could probably be any early 90's electronic/IDM track by any of the myriad of artists doing this kind of thing back then. At the same time, it's gorgeous and brilliant and highly nostalgia-inducing.

    I first heard Incunabula while working as a DJ at my college radio station (Radio 1190, which at the time was called KUCB) in my freshman year. Up to that point, my major exposure to electronic music was through industrial acts such as Skinny Puppy and Front 242. I remember about the same time that someone introduced me to Autechre, they also played me Intermix's Phaze Two. My mind was sufficiently blown. I thought Intermix was pretty cool, since it was a project from Front Line Assembly's Bill Leeb. Of course, I haven't listened to that in years. It probably hasn't aged well (though I wouldn't be surprised if Phaze One brought back some fun memories).

    15 years later and Basscadet is still a completely captivating track.

    Shuffle your shit up and post the track under the next question, then answer the question with the track title or style.

    How does the world see me?
    Special Brew
    I guess I can kinda relate this to the fact that I'm a unique person. >_>

    Will I have a happy life?
    Bullet & the Bullseye
    I guess not.

    What do people really think of me?
    Well, either people think of me as a cock, having a cock, or really loud and fast. None of which would really make sense with me. This would make much more sense with the next question. :D

    Do people secretly lust after me?
    I guess not, since the track itself is very calm and ...not intense.

    How can I make myself happy?
    Black Bugs
    YEAH! Video games! Woo!

    What should I do with my life?
    Sanctuary 13
    This song actually makes a lot of sense for this. Look up the lyrics if you don't believe me.

    Will I ever have children?

    I will have pigeons who will ignore me. Sweet.
