Chosen Lords by Aphex Twin AFX

In a galaxy far away somewhere near Elephant & Castle, in fact sits AFX, aka Aphex Twin. He makes music, as that is all he knows. There was a time. 15 years ago, when he was a prodigy, the techno pixie straight outta Cornwall with an ear for compelling, weird. usually wonderful beat driven music. You'd be forgiven for thinking he disappeared when the dance, or indeed analogue bath, bubble popped. But ‘Chosen Lords’ is proof of Aphex Twin's uncommonly rude health. artistically speaking. Gathered here are 10 of the tracks from last year's 11 volume vinyl only set sold on his website to fans. Each episode sold five figure quantities. On ‘Chosen Lords’. AFX glides between dark tedino, freakish deep house,
twisted electro and, on the snappily titled ‘PW Steal.Ldpinch.D' mini analogue symphonies. Aphex Twin: still king of the electronic castle and probably the elephant too.
