Richard David James (born 18 August 1971), best known by the alias Aphex Twin 
and less prominently as AFX,is an Irish-born British musician, composer and DJ.
He is best known for his idiosyncratic work in electronic styles such as techno,
ambient, and jungle.Music journalists from publications including Mixmag,
The New York Times, NME, Fact, Clash and The Guardian have called James one of the
most influential or important contemporary electronic musicians.
Raised in Cornwall, James began DJing at free parties and clubs in the area in the
late 1980s, and later at venues around the West Country.His debut EP, Analogue 
Bubblebath, was released in 1991 on Mighty Force Records. It brought James acclaim
and a cult following; he began to perform at techno clubs and raves across the UK
and continental Europe.James co-founded the independent label Rephlex Records
the same year.James's 1992 debut album Selected Ambient Works 85–92, released
by Belgian label Apollo, garnered wider critical and popular appreciation.
That year, he also appeared on the influential Warp Records compilation 
Artificial Intelligence.He signed to Warp the following year and subsequently
released charting albums such as ...I Care Because You Do (1995) and
Richard D James Album (1996), as well as Top 40 singles "On" (1993),
"Come to Daddy" (1997), and "Windowlicker" (1999). With music videos directed
by Chris Cunningham, "Come to Daddy" and "Windowlicker" brought James significantly
wider international attention.
After releasing Drukqs in 2001, James spent several years releasing music on his
own Rephlex label, including the 2005 Analord EP series, and a pair of 2007
releases under the alias the Tuss. In 2014, he made available a previously unreleased
1994 LP as Caustic Window. He returned later that year with the album Syro,
which won the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album. He has since released
charting EPs including Cheetah (2016) and Collapse (2018).
