GRAMMY award-winner Richard David James, best known by the alias
Aphex Twin and less prominently as AFX, is an Irish-born British
musician, composer and DJ.
He is best known for his idiosyncratic work in electronic styles such as techno,
ambient, and jungle.
The first full-length Aphex Twin album, Selected Ambient Works 8592,
comprised material dating back to James's teen years. It was released in
November 1992 by Apollo Records, a subsidiary of Belgian label R&S.
Aphex Twin released an EP, Collapse, on 14 September 2018. The EP
was announced on 5 August in a garbled press release written in broken English
and visually distorted with the same Aphex Twin 3D graphic found in London,
Turin and Hollywood.
James's music has often been characterized as an example of the "intelligent
dance music" that began in the 1990s. IDM is mentioned on the home page of the
Intelligent Dance Music (IDM) mailing list at Hyperreal.org about the music of
Aphex Twin and the Artificial Intelligence Series released by Warp
Records. The series features James's recordings as Polygon Window and early
productions from artists including Autechre, Black Dog,
FUSE project and Speedy J. The term spread to the United States and internet
Writing in The Guardian in 2001, journalist Paul Lester described James as "the
most inventive and influential figure in contemporary electronic music". Rolling
Stone described James as a "hugely influential electronic musician whose ambient
washes of sound and freakishly twisted beats have gone on to inform artists of
AllMusic's John Bush wrote that "unlike most artists who emerged from the '90s
techno scene, James established himself as a genuine personality, known for his
cheeky grin and nightmare-inducing music videos as much as his groundbreaking
albums and EPs," which helped to "expand his audience from ravers and critics to
rock fans, with numerous non-electronic musicians citing him as an inspiration".
In 2001, Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk cited Aphex Twin (particularly "Windowlicker")
as an influence on their 2001 album Discovery. Bangalter said he liked it
because "It wasn't a big club beat, but it also wasn't a laid back, quiet one".
Artists including Mike Edwards of Jesus Jones, Steve Reich, Wes Borland of
Mike Shinoda of
Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, Kevin Parker of
Tame Impala, and Nick
Zammuto of the Books have expressed admiration for Aphex Twin or cited
him as an influence.
James influenced Radiohead's
transition to electronic music for their 2000 album Kid A. In 2013,
Thom Yorke named
Aphex Twin as his biggest influence, saying: "He burns a heavy shadow ...
Aphex opened up another world that didn't involve my fucking electric guitar ...
I hated the Britpop thing and what was happening in America, but Aphex was
totally beautiful, and he's kind of my age too." In 2002, asked if he would tour
with Radiohead, James
said "I wouldn't play with them since I don't like them". However, James said in
2011 that his dislike of
Radiohead had been exaggerated by the press and that he had contacted
Yorke by e-mail to explain this.
In 2005, Alarm Will Sound released Acoustica: Alarm Will Sound Performs Aphex
Twin, featuring acoustic arrangements of James's electronic tracks. The
London Sinfonietta performed arrangements of Aphex Twin songs in 2006.
Animator David Firth sampled Aphex Twin in his work. In 2012, Fact named
Selected Ambient Works 8592 the best album of the 1990s.
His discography includes six studio albums, three compilation albums, 14
extended plays, seven singles, and 12 music videos, all released under his best
known alias Aphex Twin.
