Aphex Twin

Biography

Richard David James (born 18 August 1971), best known by his alias Aphex Twin, is a British electronic musician and composer. He has been described by The Guardian as "the most inventive and influential figure in contemporary electronic music", and is the co-founder of Rephlex Records with Grant Wilson-Claridge. Aphex Twin's album Selected Ambient Works 85-92 was called the best album of the 1990s by FACT Magazine.

James has also released a number of EPs as AFX since 1991 including the Analogue Bubblebath and Analord series of EPs. James has also used and continues to use several other aliases, such as Polygon Window, Caustic Window, and the Tuss.

In addition to Rephlex, James has released Aphex Twin records on Warp, R&S, Sire, Mighty Force, Rabbit City and Men Records. Following public sightings of the Aphex Twin logo in London, United Kingdom, and New York City, United States, in August 2014, the Aphex Twin Twitter account confirmed the release of Syro, his sixth studio album. Following a subsequent press release, Syro was officially released on 23 September 2014 through the Warp music label. In February 2015, Syro won James the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album. The album was also nominated for IMPALA's European Independent Album of the Year Award.
