Hot on the heels of RX-101’s debut 12” of archival releases comes “EP 2,” the 2nd volume in an ongoing series from Suction Records. RX-101 is Erik Jong, a previously unknown producer from the Netherlands, who recorded hundreds of tracks live to cassette in a feverish burst of creativity from 1997 to 1999.
While his debut aimed to showcase a more broad range of RX-101’s massive Rephlex inspired catalog, from caustic and crunchy to plaintive and melancholic, “EP 2” hones in on highlights from RX-101’s arsenal of warm, melodic techno gems. For those who crave playful analog basslines and wistful, evocative synth pads, you’ll be hooked within the first minute of opener “August ’97.” The references are clear: if you’re a fan of Bochum Welt or Aphex Twin’s “Selected Ambient Works Volume 1," this 6-track 12” delivers just that sound - authentic, effortless and pure.
