Top definition
A band from Manchester. Autechre creates elaborately structured and highly detailed electronic music, usually labeled IDM. The music is often abstract and non-referential, thus rendering much of it largely inaccessible and sometimes misunderstood. Early releases tend to be electro-influenced and somewhat melodic, later releases tend to be more intricately structured and difficult. They have had releases on Warp records since the early 90's.

They often draw obvious comparisons to aphex twin, squarepusher, plaid, and others (based on the loose IDM classification), although they are really quite different.

There is a neverending debate on the pronunciation of this word. See below for the generally accepted pronunciation.
example #1:

'I really think Autechre is at the forefront of today's electronic music scene.'

example #2:

Dad: 'What's that noise?'
Joey: 'It's the new Autechre record.'
Dad: 'Oh, I thought it was our air conditioner breaking down again.'
