Richard Devine

Signal interruptions, distortion errors, glitches — these are all bad things, right? Not if you were to judge by the epileptic electronica of Richard Devine. A cybernetic brain-zap of spazzy rhythms and unidentifiable digital skrizz, Devine's music sounds like Aphex…

AFX

When Richard D. James came out at the start of the '90s as Aphex Twin, he was poised at the zeitgeist of bedroom electronica, melding aggressive acid to ambient soundscapes. With "Come to Daddy" and "Windowlicker," he even brought such…

Various Artists

There's little doubt that Sire Records is deserving of the box-set treatment. Co-founder Seymour Stein had an uncanny knack for signing punk, pop, new wave, dance, shoegazer, and altcountry acts that were destined to make great, groundbreaking albums, or at…

B. Fleischmann

B. Fleischmann's third full-length, the two-disc Welcome Tourist, could easily have been called Never Mind the Dance Floor, Here's the Mattress. As with past efforts, the German producer traffics in a kind of sleepy electronica that seems perfect for dozing…

Aphex Twin

Assembling a retrospective of Aphex Twin's decade-plus remix work on two discs is like slapping a painting each from Picasso's Pink, Blue, and Cubist periods into one book and pretending it's cohesive enough to make sense. Richard D. James (Aphex)…

Lacking the bombast of rock 'n' roll, electronic dance music has few bad boys. It does, however, have more than its share of pranksters, thanks in part to the relentlessly irreverent antics of Richard D. James, aka Aphex Twin. In…
