MP3(s) of the Day #881: Aphex Twin

The music industry has faced a continuous barrage of blips, bumps and bruises, from the richy rich artists like Taylor Swift pulling back catalogues from Spotify because they don’t need the money and don’t mind screwing the fans, to Jay-Z’s setup of the polarising Tidal stream service that now appears to be floundering and trying its best to keep its head above water. The latest development will be specifically of interest to electronic music fans, and the move seems completely and utterly unselfish and is A Nice Thing after the general election.

Electronic visionary Richard D. James, better known by and going down in musical history by his stage name Aphex Twin, along with other Sony artists, removed all his tracks from his SoundCloud; the Guardian has reported that this is probably related to the streaming service’s problems with monetization. Whatever or however this has happened, James has turned around and decided to offer up this ZIP file of over 200 tracks and demos for free download. This Google Doc provides the track listing. Happy hunting and listening!
