Any Fans Of "Aphex Twin?"

Sun Jan 27, 2008 5:14 pm

I was messing around with Lime Wire, stumbled upon a fellow named "Aphex Twin." This music is the oddest trippiest music I think I've heard.
Specifically songs like: Stone in Focus or Windowlicker--I've never heard songs like this before.

It is rather catchy, does anyone else find themselves hypnotized by this guy?

Aphex Twin is pretty good, I like his early 2000 records alot. There's alot of artists sorta like him on his record label. http://www.warprecords.com/ Squarepusher is one of my favorites.

What's the genre of this kind of music? Would it be considered Ambient Trance?

Aphex Twin doesn't really fit any label- he's done something in many of the electronic subgenres. However, his most popular albums are classified as drum and bass.

I have a few of their albums, I used to listen to them a great deal a few years ago. Back then my music tastes were very different to what they are now as I used to be very very much into the dance scene (and all of the things that go with it  Wink )

I recall listening to all kinds of stuff, from drum and base through to dark trance. I recall listening to lots of 'Crystal Method' at the same time as I was listening to Aphex Twin. I found that much of the 'chart dance' back then just didn't do it for me, it was way to chirpy, so I actively sought out much darker music. Some of the house music I would listen to was akin to the sound some massive machine might make, and rarely with vocals.

I'm glad to say that I got out of the hedonistic part of that scene, got my crap together and stopped the irresponsible behaviour in order to finish my Ph.D.

Some 5 years later, I still like dance music now, and in some respects I do miss the lifestyle, but age and responsibilities catch up on all of us I guess. I still enjoy listening to Radio 1 and catching Seb Fontaine's mixes when I can.

Anyway, you should check out one of Aphex Twin's videos where everyone in the video is the same guy, it's pretty freaky!

Also, a friend of mine went to see them live back in the mid 90's. He said that for a significant amount of time, the guy just scraped a ruler (or some other such object) against the microphone!

Quoting MrChips (Reply 4):

I used to call it "Jungle", but I don't know if i'm right.

I LOVE Aphex twin! but it's a pity their music don't fit most discotheques style... it's too hard! maybe... dificult to dance! 

BTW, this one is my favorite, is somewhat... SICK!!
