Autechre’s recent 12-hour online DJ set certainly sparked an interest in the duo’s music outside of their faithful band of fans. The clamor to document every record played during the mammoth set is a testament to their popularity, and it has also created a buzz ahead of the release of Oversteps on Warp on March 22.
The album is currently streaming in full at the Clash magazine website, and there’s also an interview with Sean Booth and Rob Brown to accompany the audio files. “I wouldn’t call it ambient,” says Booth. “My idea of what ambient music and our new album are is a million miles away from each other.”
