Artist: Aphex Twin
Album: Selected Ambient Works Volume II
Song: Blue Calx

Best known for his intricately crafted electronic music, Aphex Twin is one of the most iconic IDM/Braindance musicians of all time. In fact, Richard D. James, the human behind Aphex Twin, coined the term braindance to describe the wild, new genre of captivating music that did not conform to the monotonous trends of dance music at the time. Aphex Twin, or any of Richard’s other aliases, such as AFX, The Tuss, etc, do produce some of the best braindance, but this fine gentlemen also crafts some of the most enthralling ambient music. Today I would like to appreciate the ambient side of Aphex Twin and celebrate his album ‘Selected Ambient Works Volume II.’
