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.
Quoted in Mixmag Richard said ” I just love electronics and music and putting the two together just came naturally. I did electronics in college. Electronic music is just so lush basically I love messing with acid, jungle, and playing it out to my mates in a night club. Get out there and dance. Let’s have it! If anyone’s coming to my shows I just want everybody to just dance and have a laugh basically.” At a Rephlex party in 2001 Aphex Twin was asked by a journalist if he used the term IDM and he replied “only for rubbish mp3.com music that I don’t really like, basically if I say that it’s for something shit that I don’t care about. It’s just funny how online people just copy each other and it’s so lazy. Quite funny I reckon.”
In 1991 Aphex formed the Rephlex record label with his friend Grant Wilson-Claridge. Signed artists include Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq) and Squarepusher.
