 Aphex Twin - AFX - Kamm's Aphex Twin Fansite
Aphex’s first release, Analogue Bubblebath #1 (1991) featured Schizophrenia (aka Tom Middleton, half of ambient/techno duo, Global Communications/ Reload) on one side -- the only release on which the two worked together.
Aphex’s indefinable musical genre was now attracting a considerable following in the British press, and people ranging from Japanese artists to the likes of Jesus Jones and Saint Etienne queued up to be remixed by him.
The third Aphex album, Selected Ambient Works #2 (1994), was not well received - critics did not take to its long moody drones and distant melodies - but his next album, I Care Beacuse You Do (1995), more along trip-hop lines, met with a far better reception.

 Aphex Twin, the madman of electronica. By Alec Hanley Bemis - Slate Magazine
Aphex Twin, aka Richard D. James, is a reclusive electronic musician and producer known for his legendary mischievousness: For a while, he took to driving around the English countryside in a decommissioned tank.
Aphex Twin has continually re-imagined and reinvigorated the minor genre known as intelligent dance music, or I.D.M.—essentially a type of electronica fit for bedroom listening.
An ideal introduction to Aphex Twin's peculiar approach is his "The Beauty of Being Numb Section B," which is nominally, at least, a Nine Inch Nails remix.

 Aphex Twin: Drukqs (2001): Reviews
Aside from all the criticism, the previously unreleased musings of Aphex Twin are still far more intriguing and solid than most producers' best releases.
So if you are interested in Aphex Twin, do not hesitate to buy this album, so long as you are willing to take on a challenge.

 Aphex Twin
Aphex Twin (aka Richard D. James) has become something of a cult figure in the world of electronic music, and for good reason.
Boasting a name taken from the actual digital audio manufacturer Aphex, Richard D. James is the electronic music world's version of David Byrne, or, at times, Ozzy Osbourne (before the pathetic reality TV stint).
The video takes viewers on a bleak and chilling trip through the back alleys of London where a group of hideous Aphex Twin child clones wreek havoc and James emerges from a television set as Satan himself to confront a hapless old woman and her dog.

Though his first major single, "Didgeridoo," was a piece of acid thrash designed to tire dancers during his DJ sets, ambient stylists and critics later took him under their wing for Selected Ambient Works 85-92, a sublime touchstone in the field of ambient techno.
Later that year, the Hangable Auto Bulb EP replaced Analogue Bubblebath 3 as Aphex Twin's most brutal, uncompromising release -- a fusion of experimental music and jungle being explored at the same time on releases by Plug and Squarepusher.
The fourth proper Aphex Twin album, November 1996's Richard D. James Album, continued his forays into acid-jungle and experimental music.

 Adrian's Album Reviews : Aphex Twin
This effect is something Aphex Twin specialises in, it's something that comes across as being so natural and effective it's a wonder more artists of this type don't try to do this.
None of this was intended for release and bar two singles released in the wake of 'Richard D James' it fully appeared that Aphex Twin had all but retired from the music scene.
Aphex Twin is fascinating to me. The softer, lighter songs sound just as if they were taken from within my most personal, private dreams.

 Aphex Twin: 26 Mixes for Cash - PopMatters Music Review
These two openers lead into a fishy mix which is sometimes dead boring (the Aphex Twin Care Mix of Gentle People's "Journey"), fascinating (Aphex Twin Reconstruction #2 of Jesus Jones' "Zeros and Ones"), or annoying (Saint Etienne's "Your Head My Voice", where the original songscape is just haphazardly covered by a pile of dumb beats).
But all these tracks revolve around the first disc's centerpiece, the Aphex Twin remix of Philip Glass's "Heroes", which was itself a revisioning of David Bowie's original tune.
On the whole, I doubt that this set will exaggerate Aphex Twin's reputation much, and in terms of pure convenience and abundance of good tracks, I rate it pretty high.

Deified in the sphere of experimental dance--partly for his indisputable sporadic genius, but partly, it must be said, for his bullish refusal to play the whole "releasing records" game, and the subsequent mythology that such contrariness invariably prompts--every new release is greeted like it's the future of music on plastic.

From the first record, reflecting the midday sun, spun at noon until the light shone again early Friday morning on still-crammed dance floors, Sonar was in full swing — and it was just getting started, with two more days of stunning lineups still on tap.
Aphex Twin, perhaps techno's most directly descended minimalist, dispensed with any formalities upon taking to the decks for his much-anticipated DJ set, embarking on the sort of distorted, hyperactive drum'n'bass excursion that has become his trademark in recent years.
Aphex followed on the heels of an excellent live set by the U.K. duo Plaid (Ed Handley and Andy Turner), whose matching consoles and flat-screens emit reliably warm and creative dance grooves nearly every time they perform.

 BBC - collective - A starter's guide to Aphex Twin
Aphex Twin has never troubled the charts, and could never be described as 'mainstream', but his work has gained an international following.
He has been producing music for 20 years and there are many albums containing music which spans from early ambient and rave-influenced tracks through to more recent drum n bass and pastoral pieces.
This double CD is probably archetypal Aphex Twin, it constantly contradicts itself; twisting and turning to defy classification.

 BBC - collective - aphex twin '26 mixes for cash'
Aphex Twin’s 26 Mixes For Cash, which collates his best remixes for other artists, is a musical extension of the Dadaist ethic whose most famous expression was Marcel Duchamp’s scrawling of a moustache on a reproduction of the Mona Lisa in the 20s.
This is the kind of over-intellectualisation that has been attached to the enigmatic Twin for too long, and has led to some outrageously overblown praise and ludicrous scenes during his career.
What all too often gets overlooked is that Aphex’s music is as much about the visceral as the cerebral — "Intelligent Dance Music" that thinks with its balls as much as its brain.
