So do you think Aphex Twin will come up with some experimental music that can kill the Coronavirus stone dead.

Been a while since I posted here, a few years at least! Anyway, I've been loving the work of RX-101 - heavily inspired by Aphex and definitely captures that early 90s classic sound.

If you don't know of him, story goes that he made up to 200 tracks in the late 90s but never sent out any demos - that is up until recently when he finally sent them to Suction records who have since put out two albums and a few EPs.

There had been talk of whether it is actually Mr James himself but I think that's ruled out. Anyway, very much the Aphex template and incredible music.

The Dopamine album is more SAW 1 style and then the more recent 'Serenity' takes things up a notch while retaining a nice melodic backdrop.

Apgex Twin has shared a note online mourning the loss of his father and warning people about the current political climate.

“Huge heartfelt condolences to anyone grieving right now, I lost my father recently and it’s been really tough, it was not related to C19 (COVID-19),” reads the note, which was posted in the bio of SoundCloud user user18081971, widely accepted to be Richard D. James.

The note continues to comment on the excessive governmental control during the pandemic, saying: “When you are presented with C19 statistics, you must demand whether the figures reflect people who have died WITH C19 or FROM C19. Please do not forget this. When police carry out wishes from government, without any law being in place, you are living in a police state and it is no longer a democracy.”

He adds: “When you are held under house arrest, when no crime has been committed, you are living in a police state and it is no longer a democracy. You didn’t think this could happen did you? Do you know what rights you could lose next, can you guess? You have been warned.” The note has since been deleted but re-shared on Reddit.

James’s father, Derek, was a tin and coal miner, before becoming a psychiatric nurse and a counselor, according to a comment posted by user18081971. He has featured in many of James’s tracks, including vocal samples on “Lornaderek” and “4”.

“He was the best dad I could've ever wished to have had. He had incredible encyclopedic knowledge of so many subjects, he blew my mind constantly and my sisters...tears,” he said in another comment.

Read the note below.
