Byetone: Death Of A Typographer (CD, Raster-Noton, June 2008)

When it was released, this caused something of a stir, being a Raster-Noton record that featured tunes. I mean, it’s not exactly going to get hands in the air down at the Ministry of Sound, but there are definitely catchy moments in Olaf Bender’s bleeps and bloops. Nevertheless, it still has that Raster-Noton feel about it, with its nanometre-tolerance placement of its glitchy clicky beat. I suppose this is what people mean by “post-techno”. One of the label’s most accessible releases, and very enjoyable.

I bought this from Boomkat. They call it Clicks / Glitch.
