Richard David James (born 18 August 1971), best known by the stage name Aphex Twin, is a British musician. He is best known for his influential and idiosyncratic work in styles such as ambient techno and "intelligent dance music" during the 1990s. He is among the most acclaimed figures in contemporary electronic music
Aphex Twin, born Richard David James, August 18, 1971, in Limerick, Ireland to Welsh parents Lorna and Derek James, is an electronic music artist. He grew up in Cornwall, United Kingdom and started producing music around the age of 12 and made his first release aired on 1985. Richard has been hailed as "the most inventive and influential figure in contemporary electronic music", with his works ranging from ambient pieces to acid techno.
Not long ago, Richard D. James was swimming in the creek near his house when his next-door neighbor made an unexpected request. I’d never talked to him about what I do, says James, 43. He’s not very friendly. That’s about to change. On September 23rd, Warp Records will release Syro, the first Aphex Twin album since 2001’s Drukqs. Hooray! he says wryly. James called from a London hotel to talk about his home life in Scotland, the state of electronic music, why he’s done with traditional DJing and, yes, his collection of musical robots. Syro, which contains tracks recorded over many years, only grazes the surface of his recent work, he notes: It’s about a fifth of what I’ve done in the last 10 years. One album out of many possible ones.
The fourth proper Aphex Twin album, November 1996's Richard D. James Album, continued his forays into acid-jungle and experimental music. The accompanying videos, both directed by Chris Cunningham, featured the bodies of small children and female models (respectively) dancing around, all with ted Aphex Twin faces grinning maniacally. That August, a green blimp sporting the Aphex Twin logo was spotted flying over London; by the end of the following month, Warp released Syro, the first Aphex Twin album in over a dozen years. Syro went on to win a Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Album.
