Biography

Richard David James (born 18 August 1971), best known by his stage name Aphex Twin, is an England-based 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. 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 (UK), and New York City, United States (US), in August 2014, the Aphex Twin Twitter account announced a scheduled album release called Syro, his sixth studio album, followed by a press release that confirms the album will be released on either 22 or 23 September 2014 on the Warp music label.
