Aphex Twin is an artist that seems to unite everyone, I know many people who live and die for their specific genres of music be it metal,punk,rock,indie etc that can't help but love a bit of Aphex Twin and he inspires slavish devotion from his fans in fact my Soundcloud Playlists post (see that HERE) is one of the most visited and most downloaded on this blog! His back catlog is both vast and confusing here is a man who gave away near 3GB of music on soundcloud and claims to be barely scratching the surface of his archives! The man is a true maverick and i think that along with his stellar music is what makes him appeal to so many people despite creating some of the most angular and "difficult" electronic music around.
I see no point in going into his long history because it's been done many times before and to be honest while I wouldn't consider myself an expert I think i know enough about him but i think you'd be better off doing your own research I would assume if you're here at this post you are already a fan? I'm simply here to provide some music for you.
In the Aphex Soundcloud post I linked you to above I offered access to my full Aphex Twin files (6GB worth excluding the already uploaded soundcloud playlists) and despite the original post being years old, no one took me up on it but I did however receive a couple of comments in the last month asking for lists and one reader made some requests so I decided to start this mammoth task Right now!
So whats on offer then? OK There's no way to gauge a true Aphex Discography if you have seen the list of his various pseudonyms and projects it's beyond ridiculous but this for me is pretty much a Discography but it seems that this mammoth task I built this up to be was not the mammoth task i thought it would be as when i went back to the files to see what was left to upload i realised that it was actually less than I had already uploaded! So I have added the last of the links while the title of this post is APHEX TWIN DISCOGRAPHY no one other than Richard D James knows what the complete Discography is and i have missed out all of his early rave stuff that was done under names such as power pill etc as it doesn't really move me and there's a lot of it! So i have added the remaining links now and below you will find everything I have by Aphex Twin! here's what's in your links
"I Care Because You Do" (2017 reissue 20 tracks)"Syro", "Selected Ambient Works '85 - 92" ,"Selected Ambient Works II" (2017 Reissue which has the fabled "track 19" that was only available on the original cassette and Vinyl versions of "SAW II" reinstated, plus a bonus track) , Aphex Twin EP's (Contains "Come To Daddy" EP 8 tracks, the "Girl/Boy" EP & All tracks from the various versions of "Windowlicker" this is the first volume of "EP's" I will add more packs of EP's as the post expands) Caustic Window Discography (Contains the original Caustic Window Compilation and also the Unreleased Caustic Window album that was recorded in 1994 and released in 2014 digitally by RDJ) Polygon Window Discography (Contains the "Surfing On Sine Waves" album the "Quoth" EP and the "Portreath Harbour" 12") Those were the reader requests along with these I have also uploaded the following...

So there you go Folks if this plus the 3GB of soundcloud stuff isn't enough then bloody well go find whats missing yourself ha ha!!! Some of these Packs are pretty big but if you only want one thing from a pack then sorry i did not want to list every single release separately but you can still get whatever you want by downloading the "packs" and i have utterly crap broadband speed and the biggest of these packs would still only take me around 20 mins to download. I'm sorry for the lack of in depth blurb but how the hell do you go about charting the complex history of an insane genius? His story is filled with rumour, legend and myth Many have tried but I don't think anyone will ever get to the true heart of Aphex Twin and that's fine with me there's not enough mystique in music anymore and I personally like to imagine Richard D. James perpetually locked away in a room buried under a stack of unfathomable knobs and wires continuing to create the most distinctive and appealing electronic music of our time!
