I still don't know why a Warp manager would deliberately mislead the public and get their hopes up if it were for nothing. Not saying it isn't someone from Warp liking all the stuff, but I don't believe it's for nothing. That's extremely unprofessional otherwise and most companies wouldn't do that. Consumerism is based on trust or else people don't buy from or support companies. If I found out Warp was lying to me about this, I'd be pretty annoyed and be less likely to buy from them in the future.

Happy 420 posts btw 8)

Y’all may enjoy this - but I think one person in here is going to enjoy it a whole lot more than the rest.

Catherine Fell - Geogandhi
Soul Flask - Sl Flk
Bigjimmy12- ??? Mystery person in here...

Bigjimmy12 turned into Bigjesse13 at the comment of “cringe”. (A popular comment as of late).

Now Bigjesse13 turned into Bigdimitri18 at the comment of “confirm”. (Another popular comment for Geo/C Fell/LATP).

Bigjimmy12 used “confirm” comment on the C Fell hoax to get his gig started...

08/06/2017 - Bigjimmy12 Joined YT.
08/25/2020 - Bigjimmy12 closes account.

09/08/2020 - bigjesse13 appears and posts “unknown” then a second video using the Bigjimmy12 “jellyfish” image.

09/11/2020 - bigdimitri18 appears with a “confirm” comment and posts “fretless” on the same day. Funny enough the video photo is the “clap” emoji used in IG and recently used by BoC - lol

Bigdimitri18 joined YT on 09/21/2015.

(I hinted at Bigjohnny14 next *but it was already taken*)...so sad... I was liking the “J” theme...

All the recent movement, i.e. Hell Interface and interactions/posts on insta is a pretty clear sign that something is happening. We know BoC and Warp are deliberate in their PR, and while nothing is concrete, I can safely say this isn't all for nothing. We just gotta be patient and let them do their thing and we can have a good time getting conspiratorial in the meantime.

I'm just excited to be a part of it this time around, because I remember when Cosecha Transmisiones was happening but I didn't get involved and I regret it all the time. Not gonna make that mistake again. 8)

Almost 100% sure I saw some guy on twitter saying he was Bigjimmy and was doing it to fuck with BoC fiends a couple days ago. I’ve been trying to find the comment but can’t track it down anymore.

Also, posted this on Reddit too, but Mars went into retrograde on 9/9, and it stays that way till the 13 of November. Fits the space theme idea, and Mars would obviously be next for colonization.

You should create another topic to discuss this, perhaps This Random Sound would be more fitting? I just don't see how this would be related to BoC/HI.

I like the thinking of a post a few back regarding how BoC would likely be Q1 2021 at the earliest with Autechre album coming out soon. This little trickle of official activity on social media wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility for getting engagement leading up to...something, but just not yet.
There are a lot of different 'me's, you know. There's the mad me, when I get angry.

Agreed, as many here have said it's just not smart from a business perspective to have your two biggest names putting out records at a similar time. The only thing that goes against this is Exai and Tomorrows Harvest, which were released only 4 months apart. I'm not too confident that will happen again tho. Hoping for 2020, but reality atm is looking a lot like 2021 or beyond.

I'm really excited for the Autechre release! BoC can will should wait until we've all had time to clean our pallette with Ae abstractness. I think after that we'll finally be ready. Ae is the boss at the end of the dungeon. BoC shall be our treasure for surviving it.

About the bigdimitri post, I have always thought of Julie and Candy when I listened to the bass in that glamrocky song from Societas X and was sure that was the reason they put it on the tape. When I listened again to the song I heard a hi pitched bass note repeated in one segment of the song and I can hear something very similar in the live recording of Julie and Candy. Maybe sampled and modulated in some way.

Yes, i'm excited too! i know Ae's music, especially of late is kinda generative so it's easier to pump out than BoC's laboured style but just think about the amount of material ae have given us since Exai/TH. Mindblowing. Aphex and Plaid have twatted out decent amounts too. We're lucky these old dogs are still doing interesting things.

Pretty sure Aphex Twin is the biggest name on Warp.

What if BoC have planned to only ever release 6 albums in total?

When we think about the image of the hexagon and what it represents to BoC, maybe they have their whole musical career planned out? It would mean we have 2 more albums to go, spacing them decades apart is probably a good thing if that was the case. This is pure speculation, but something about this theory makes me feel good.

(This theory is also what the banner in my signature represents)

While six and the hexagon are definitely relevant, I’m pretty sure their magic number is 5. 23 is significant for the band, (2+3=5) and at the end of Aquarius version 3 the number 23 is stated five times in a row. Not that a 6th album would be something to sneeze at, but their contract with Warp is for five LPs, so this theme of five seems pretty well thought-out.

Some dorky stuff on the number 5:

If you try to find the meaning of number 5, you will see that this number is a symbol of positive changes that are about to happen in your life.

It is also the number of sensual experiences and we should always have in mind that we have 5 senses. We have 5 toes and 5 fingers.

Another secret meaning of number 5 is balance. It means that you should try to keep balance in all areas of your life. It particularly means that you should have balance between your spiritual and physical world. It is necessary to live in harmony with nature and to be grateful for all things in your life.

There are also many significant references to 5 in the Bible. According to the Bible, there are 5 big mysteries in this world, which are represented as the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, the Creation and the Redemption.

You can do that with any number though. You can project any theory onto BoC but as some of their interviews state, they are just having a laugh with numbers. The last quote someone posted about magic window/666 on geogaddi not even being their idea, they just ran with it. While they hide some meaning in their music intentionally, there must be loads of stuff that is unintentional, happy coincidence and things we attach as fans to their intention which just builds up their mystique even more. We have built their image as much as they have, building the lore of BoC.
That's not to discredit anything you just said, I think it's great and it's really fun to do, and i'm sure they are pretty stoked and freaked in equal measure by how things have turned out for them.
The best thing about BoC is that the music have longevity, I'll never get bored of it, it will never sound of a time, I just want some more.

That actually is quite nice and slightly more convincing than most recent stuff
