DJ Food – Selected Aphex Works
It’s safe to assume all of you reading this are up to speed as far as Aphex Twin dumping a large (and growing) amount of his archives onto SoundCloud. Just yesterday another 30 tracks were added, and he’s adding more as I type this sentence. It’s an amount of music, stat fans, now long eclipsing Mr D. James official releases total runtime.
DJ Food, masterful mixer that he is, has compiled some 85 minutes from the AFX vaults for Ninja Tune’s radio stable Solid Steel.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock recently you’ll have heard the news that Aphex Twin unexpectedly uploaded 155 of his old and unreleased tracks to Soundcloud and made them downloadable for free. Starting from his earliest demos through to known live tracks, later jungle experiments and beyond, this is the motherlode that his fans have always wanted.
DJ Food, a long-time Aphex fan, has been through the entire collection with a fine-toothed comb and selected his favourites for the first half of the show this week. The hit rate was high but he’s has managed to cram 31 tracks into 85 minutes to mark this unique occasion and peppered the mix with vintage interview clips of Richard James talking about his music.
