Lifestyles Of The Laptop Café. Warp Records от лица компании Warp Records Warp Music. Drexciya 2 Hour Mix - Return of the Laptop Café is the only studio album by The Other People Place, a recording project by American electronic music producer James Stinson. It was released on September 3, 2001 through Warp. Stinson's identity as the album's producer was not confirmed until after his death in 2002. Largely overlooked at the time of its release, Lifestyles of the Laptop Café has since received retrospective critical acclaim. After being out of print for several years, the album was reissued by Warp in 2017. Формируйте собственную коллекция коллекцию записей The Other People Place. The only record by Drexciyas James Stinson as the Other People Place is prescient in imagining our current connected-yet-disconnected state. But Lifestyles couldnt have had a more star-crossed release, coming out on September 3, 2001 and vanishing soon after. Less than a year later, Stinson would be dead due to heart complications, Lifestyles the last record to be released during his lifetime. For the duration of Drexciya, neither member revealed their names, so attempting to draw a biographical connection is haphazard at best. The Other People Place. Electronic 2001. It was long rumored and later confirmed that the anonymous producer behind the Other People Place guise is James Stinson, one half of Detroit electro geniuses Drexciya, but with the familiar jazzy tech-house rhythms that fill most of Lifestyles of the Laptop Café, it could be anyone with an ear for early Detroit techno. In fact, very much of the record sounds like the work of second-wave visionary Carl Craig. Исполнитель: The Other People Place. 2001 electronic. Wow Somethings happening to my transmitters, starting to overload Sitting here in this cafe drinking my latte Somethings happening to me What do I see on the other side of the room My my, hmm, Thats why My, shes gorgeous So let me slide over, transmission, communication sent. The Other People Place - Lifestyles Of The Laptop Cafe review: One of Detroit techno's great full-lengths, James Stinson's Lifestyles Of The Laptop Cafe is a simple, sweet album about the acceptance of technology. But in 2001, when James Stinson of the pioneering Drexciya released his solo debut Lifestyles Of The Laptop Cafe as The Other People Place, the Internet age was coming into sharp focus. The future became easier to predict, and Stinson responded to it with a simple, sweet record about the acceptance of technology. He died a year later. Artists We Also Like: Drexciya, Clarence, Lab Rat XL, Shifted Phases, Transllusion. Released on Warp records, Lifestyles Of The Laptop Cafe was the first and only album released by James Stinson under The Other People Place alias, which took him from his usual sea dwelling Drexciyan techno to a warmer, more human sound. The album itself seems to go through the falling in love and eventually separation of a man and a woman. Released originally in 2001 and going for very high prices on the 2nd hand market, due to high demand and a web address by fans, Warp records repressed this cult classic again on double vinyl in the end of 2016. Lifestyles of the Laptop Café Q&A

I remember getting this when it came out. There was a bit of a buzz about it in the record store as people were debating whether it was actually a Drexciya record or not, most people seemed unconvinced as it wasn't really like what they'd put out before. Back then it was all still a mystery, just rumours, though store owner said it was hinted at by Warp. Remember there was no discogs (or it was just starting and pretty basic), no Drexiciya Research blog, very little information at all on the internet. I have to admit I wasn't sure myself, as I'd recently bought Harnessed The Storm which is a much harsher darker album. But I thought it sounded really good so I bought it regardless. After a few listens I was convinced it really was Drexciya, even if it was very different to their other records, much more mellow and groovy, lush and melodic. Yet, it seemed to me like only Drexciya could make something like this, it still had that live organic feel to it, though the aesthetic was quite different the way it was all put together seemed to me pure Drexciya. Over the next year or two, more albums by Shifted Phases, Transllusion, Abstract Thought and finally Lab Rat XL would drop, all with little fanfare, all exploring different moods and themes. It had become clear that there had been a "storm" of remarkable creativity and productivity in the Drexciya labs. Then the news of James Stinson's sad and untimely death came out. And over the years, more information has come out, we now know for example that most if not all of the storms were solo projects by James Stinson, who knew he was dying but still had so much to say. RIP.I do miss that about the pre-discogs days, when the internet hadn't completely taken over, local record stores were more important in terms of finding out about new music, things could be drip fed to people, you could keep a secret, create mystery and intrigue, we've since lost a lot of that mystery. Of course, it's the music itself that is the most important thing, and while Stinson has left this world, his music will live on for ever. Oh yeah, the music, this album is a masterpiece imo. Lush and melodic, really deep and contemplative, very relaxing. Let Be Me works well in a club environment at the right moment, but mostly it's for home listening. Also worth tracking down the Sunday Night Live At The Laptop Cafe 12" on Clone.
Classic album. I remember hearing "It's Your Love" during his interview with Liz Copeland and being completely enchanted by it. If you enjoyed this there is a good chance you'll enjoy this as well:https://www.discogs.com/Anthiliawaters-The-Miles-Without-You/master/1164044

Running from love, running from love, running from love, running

It,s one of this classic albums, which never disapointed you....
this and Metro Area debut will always be 2 of my timeless faves
6 tracks never heard before from James Stinson being released on the Clone Aqualung Series. Recordings from around the same time as Lifestyles Of The Laptop Café: https://bleep.com/release/83841-jack-peoples-james-stinson-laptop-cafe
What's to be said? A stone cold classic. Everyone needs this record.
Seminal album which has stood the test of time and will continue to do so.Effortlessly beautiful and emotional electronica.
The Gescom EP on Warp and Elecktroids album next please Warp. Much obliged.
Repress on the way,10th Feb 2017? Yay! Get yer pre orders in now....
Good for everyone with the re-press. The people who don't care about their vinyl gaining price over the years can get the re-press for a cheaper and more realistic price, and the other collectors who care about first pressing and limited rare versions can pay a little more. Elecktriods to be re-pressed next please warp :)
One of this piece of music You will never forget when listen first time
oh, well...let's hope it's not as crappy as the incunabula repress was...please ? anyways, am really looking fwd to this. thanks , warp.
I've never heard the og of Incunabula, but my repress copy is brilliant!
One of the most exciting represses ever, so happy. I feel sorry for whoever bought a VG copy for £140 just a few weeks ago. Hopefully lots more labels will start doing represses of highly sought after records like this.
The Rollers of Vildar
i am the poor muppet you speak of. but not to worry, the record was a gift for my beautiful partner; sentimental value will always exceed financial.
dont feel sorry for him,,it was me who backed out the deal,& lost out on a 1a,.now im the one with tears :) o well,,its only money.....
Thanks for listening, Warp, and thanks to everyone who made this possible.Long live this wonderful LP, and James Marcel Stinson.
Tip to everyone who made it possible for the repress; well earned. Music for the people, not the facade!
Repress pre-order available at bleep.com. Comes with high quality DL which is available right away. Nice xmas present :)
will it go to other stores as well ??? 10 words
oooh look at all the copies suddenly being listed in desperation !! Haha suck it up people , no one wants your overpriced LPs now. Praise be to the repress god !! Elecktroids will be next ;) wait and see
fuck yeah repress, preordered, and fuck all the scum selling it for 300+
good luck for seeling this issue for like € 300,- HAHAHA>>>>https://bleep.com/release/6676-the-other-people-place-lifestyles-of-the-laptop-caf
Please don't repress. Some records are made special by their elusiveness, such as this one.
so now that it's getting repressed is the record no longer special? i'll buy your copy for $5, if thats ok with you
You're posting on a website that destroys the idea of "elusiveness," man. But, hate to know how you're feeling now that it is being repressed. Maybe I can get a copy, now, and actually be able to support Warp and Stinson's heirs thru my purchase, and not some slime-head who's hoarding a copy for hundreds of dollars.
I like how people use the "helpful" tag as a FB "like" button on discogs. I do too :)
I could agree only when it is said by the artist himself
sounds elitist but ok
That was the case with Clarence G. Dub.: sought after release because rare one, but not very interesting once repressed. I'd like to see this one repressed just o be sure the music will still seem good after.
Records are made special by the music on them, not the price tag. And music is made to be shared. Absolutely no reason why this shouldn't be repressed.
why the hell are people selling this in the hundreds? I don't think of Warp as the kind of label to make 50 copies of an album
Because people are willing to pay that much for it. Just check recent auctions and sales histories.
Had a fever dream I owned this, woke to a sad reality
Repress coming from Warp next February. Available to preorder on Bleep :)
If you want to see this LP repress, i found a new website, Diggers Factory, where you can add every record you want to see repress, and it works like a petition. This LP is already on the website ! https://www.diggersfactory.com/project/72/lifestyles-of-the-laptop-cafe
WOWee, this is excellent stuff - I missed it on WARP the first time around in 2001 (although remember it being released) and have kicked myself and hoped ever since that it would be reissued someday. Fingers crossed WARP does the right thing but their track record most likely means it won't happen. Such a shame as this truly is magical music.
Another vote for vinyl repress!
buying for 80-90 , If anyone wanna sell for fair price:)
80-90 for a high res audio file? Deal :))
I must get this on Vinyl. It's so wonderful!
One of the greatest albums of all time. I need this on vinyl so bad!
Hi, I want to sell mine t`s in avery good condition! It`s nearly as new. There`s only a few light scratches on the second disc. Write me if you`re interested in buying it. greetz from germany
this is one of the best works from stinson, definitely.such a timeless, warm, classic album.a repress would be more than appreciated.i know sooo many record addicts like me whowould buy it instantly.clone did it right with the drexciya reissue compilation.that's how warp should also do with this piece of beauty.
Excellent album. a favorite!
Heard "Let Me Be Me" on a Miss Kittin mix back in 2003, which was one of the only tracks I had identified from the mix at the time. Happened to stumble across it at a local record shop after having just placed an order for the CD. Bought it anyway, and happy that I did now that I see the price its fetching! Not that I plan to sell it, as it has never left my crate in 9 years! Not always played, but always there when its needed. Groovy minimalism like no other. Probably my favorite (and intro to) the Drex-related releases. Hopefully I can thank MK in person one day if we ever cross paths!
10 years on and this album is still as fresh and as relevant as any other classic Warp release to date. Choice!
After long talks on the internet she finally agreed to meet in real life. Eye contact was made. A simple kiss exchanged deep emotions, awoke peace of mind, confusion and love. People on the streets noticed and looked in awe. It's your love. Impressed, in a different city a moonlight rendezvous occured. She said she want me. She said i know what i want. Some days later the cavities of life reached out. Enough with that! Let me be what i wanna be. Suddenly she was gone. Was she running from his love? Gone? Back to earth, yet luckily there are the sunrays. Project produced by James Stinson about a love born which prematurely ended. James died exactly one year after the release. Rest in peace my friend.
I purchased this album during a visit to london in 2001; didn't even listen to it in the store (smallfish)... the guy at the front counter just told me to get it, in his eyes it was the album of the year. Man, that seems like such a long time ago! I of course began to play it, and while the music was incredible, the vocals really got on my nerves. But, the more I listened I saw how well they actually fit in with the music and completed the tracks. There are a couple without vocals as well (sunrays, midnight rondevous). Anyways, after 7 years of having this album I still listen to it often. Stinson created a certain magic with his analogue; you really get the impression that the gear was an extension of him. He was able to take what would normally be cold and mechanical and turn it into warm, emotional, human compositions that still inspire me to this day. The LP is well worn at this point, but thanks to the world of FLAC digital downloads I will have it forever preserved in pristine quality. This, like most of Stinson's work, has a timeless quality that will make it sound fresh for years and years.
This terrific album from the Storm series just has 'it'. The first time I listened to this album it didn't mean anything more to me than just a good chillout album. But after hearing it over and over for about a year now, I know I was terribly wrong. Nowadays this album is one of my alltime favorites. It is great music to listen by yourself, you can find inner rest and peace...it calmes you known and gives a great feeling inside if you let it.. The great depth and ongoing warm soul vibe of this record are anything but standard in electronic music, it is magical. The tracks create a specific mood, a mood no other album has provided in my eyes. It sounds very different from the other Drexciya and Drexciya related albums. No longer the dark, aquatic or aggresive sound but a sound that is warmer and moodier than ever. Some of the tracks contain vocals, in the first track I believe it's the voice of James himself. These vocals are definately contribute alot to this release, they are very well timed and fit in perfectly. My personal favorite track of the album would have to be; Running From Love. Moonlight Rendezvous, Let Me Be Me and Sunrays are just as good to be honest. I give this album 5/5 and then some..buy it, tou won't be disappointed.
Anything Drexciya related always is quality. I'm definitely feeling the mood of this release. The mighty force that is Drexciya has once again proved to us how versatile it can be without losing its soul.
Other People Place is rumoured to be one half of the mighty Drexciya. This record is a must for lovers of electro and all things drexciya, with tracks like 'Moonlight Rendezvous', 'You Said You Want Me' and the brilliant 'Let Me Be Me'.
