Aphex Twin - Drukqs

Techno Tuesday is back with Aphex Twin. That is really a pseudonym for one man named Richard D. James. He is an Irish born artist, known for crazy, electronic beats. This is actually his last studio album to ever came out - and it was released in 2001. I'm not even sure if there is a phrase to describe his style. He's got a very unique blend of beats and synth. Some call it 'intelligent dance music' - but I don't really subscribe to that term. Some of it is almost background techno - as in something you could sit down and eat dinner to. Or maybe something that could be on in a store while you're shopping. It's not that loud, in your face techno you're probably used to. This is more subtle, and unknown to you, you've been toe tapping the whole time. I don't have a ton to say about Aphex Twin, only because it's just that different. I won't come out and tell you that you'll love it, because quite honestly - most of you won't. This brand of dance isn't for everyone. But I think it's neat. It's certainly a cool change of pace to whatever I'm grooving to at the moment. I recommend checking it out, and then let me know what you think. Happy Tuesday!
