Draft 7.30

Draft 7.30 is the seventh album by the electronic music group Autechre. It was released by Warp Records in 2003. The name Draft 7.30 supposedly derives from the album being the 30th edited version of the album. The artwork for this album was created by Alex Rutterford. "Theme of Sudden Roundabout" refers to Sudden, which is in Rochdale, the duo's hometown. "Reniform Puls" was used in a television advertisement for the LG U880 mobile phone.

Around the time of the album's release, Sean Booth stated in an interview that "[rhythm] doesn't seem to limit us in the way it did when we first started".[1]

The album received mixed reviews from critics, most notably a review by Dominique Leone for Pitchfork Media; "Of course, as with most Autechre releases, there will probably be considerable differences in reception for Draft 7.30. Since it doesn't break much new ground, there will be many who dismiss it quickly (perhaps without giving it a fair shake); others will be only too glad to see Booth and Brown return to more straightforward grounds, even if they don't quite reach their mid-90s peak as melodic technicians; still others may hear a logical progression from Confield, pointing to the group's use of a similar sound palette to make a very different journey."
