2021 reissue of »Chiastic Slide«. By 1997, Autechre had released four albums: Incunabula, Amber, Tri Repetae and Chiastic Slide. "Along the way, they had gradually transitioned from making pretty-if-abstract tracks that fit nicely under the “Intelligent Dance Music”/”braindance” umbrella to assembling barbed, jagged collages of booming, irregular beats and weird crunching sounds." (Stereogum). ‘Chiastic Slide’ had quite an impact on the IDM scene and it is the only Autechre LP, that didn't get a US release back then - allegedly because Trent Reznor & his label Nothing Records thought it was "too weird".
