  1. can anyone explain the reason i see a lot of areas on the net that just love aphex twin? for instance, i remember i needed to know his real name to register for one site (muff wiggler or gearslutz maybe?) and each time something about him pops up, its just drool central. i mean, sure hes created some decent tracks, but i dont understand why a lot of music forums adore him. im not trying to be condescending, just trying to understand as i’ve never followed his music. did he lay down some fundamental groundwork in electronic music that i’m not aware of?

    1. Guess there’s two kinds of people in this world. People who’s lives were changed the first time they heard aphex twin, and those who werent. But If the first time you heard it was on this site then you probably weren’t hearing the tracks that put him in the souls of so many producers out there. I’d recommend having a listen to Flourescent Grey’s AFX mix. So good!!

    2. His music was consistently cutting edge and ahead of every genre durin the rise of club music, he’s an independant experimenter, at the same time his music is deeply personal. he’s created some of the most beautiful/delicate music you’ll ever hear, and some of the most aggressive. Inspiration for anyone into the idea of music

  2. I think his work is special because it sounds so unique. No one else makes music that sounds remotely like his to me. Personally I have played with electronic music for a long time and explored synthesizers and I could never come close to replicating his sounds or tracks. As a synth nerd his homemade production equipment intrigues me and the mystic around his existence captivates me. It just sounds like the mind of a genius to me.
