Throughout the '90s, Autechre have been instrumental in disrupting the flow of the mix. The Sheffield duo of Sean Booth and Rob Brown produces electronic sounds that shoot off in seemingly random trajectories, but like a fractal, there is an apparent order that stems from the chaos. Autechre are nothing if not rhythmic, but their rhythms are disjointed and angular. Yet each fibrous beat and twisting pulse weaves together to form a textile of texture. The components of their sound are unmistakably Electro, but each beat is so fractured, each note is so out of context, the lyrical flow of an artist like Mantronix is left as a shard of broken glass on the pavement. But the beauty of Autechre's deconstruction is that there is little as enchanting as a glimmering pile of broken glass, however much an abstraction of its former self.
