Cause & Effect : May 6th : Aphex Twin
In no time I understood the difference between drum + bass, jungle, big beat...and with each new year, our roster of electronic music labels we distributed grew. When it was suggested we do Aphex Twin for Cause & Effect I initially cringed because my gut still tells me I don't know anything about electronic music but as I began working on the show it all started coming back to me. I sometimes don't give myself credit and was pleasantly reminded that those 11 years at Caroline practically game me a masters degree in underground music, especially the genre now dubbed IDM, Intelligent Dance Music. If there was one style of electronic music I am most familiar with, this is it.
Tonight from 7PM to 9PM on WRIR I will be sharing highlights from my electronic music collection that relate back to the roots of where UK solo artist Aphex Twin AKA Richard David James came from, the artists that he has worked closely with, and then the musicians inspired by his music catalog.
Tonight's set includes music by: The Future Sound Of London, Autechre, Matmos, The Bad Plus, Thobbing Gristle, NIN, Radiohead, Ween, John Cage, Philip Glass, Iannis Xenakis, and more.
