Icon5 Music like Aphex Twins first album?

Hey!

I'm looking for music like Aphex Twins first album. I love almost every track on it with Xtal, Tha and Pulsewidth being my favorites. I haven't listened to the rest of Aphex Twins discography yet but I tried Selected Ambient Works Vol. II and it's far from as good as Volume I in my opinion.

I tried listening to Squarepusher and Autechre a bit since some people recommended it but I didn't find them particularly good.

I have very little experience with electronic music in general.

Thanks for any help!

I think Vol. 2 is almost as good, but it requires more patience so I don't listen to it as often. His best songs are on Analord IMO (most would probably not agree).

Re: Music like Aphex Twins first album?

Aphex's Analogue Bubblebath Ep and Lp are both fantastic... Any of his stuff when he was working under AFX has his distinct old skool flavour... Also his Richard D. James Album is spot on... I am a massive fan though, so I love all of his stuff...

Re: Music like Aphex Twins first album?

Based on the Wikipedia article, some think The Tuss is Aphex Twin, but he denies it. People believe he is because of the synthesizer used in some of The Tusk's tracks in which Aphex Twin owns... So I would check out The Tuss!

And Squarepusher's brother, Ceephax, is kind of funky too!

If I recall correctly Incunabula is probably Autechre's most SAW 85-92 sounding album.

Autechre - Bike - YouTube
Yeah Incunabula is probably the closest you're going to get.

Also try checking out the Artificial Intelligence albums.

Re: Music like Aphex Twins first album?

I went on a similar search earlier last year and came to no conclusion. However, i found a lot of great stuff on the way, such as Bochum Welt. Higher Intelligence Agency may be up your alley too. And a lot of the FAX Records stuff fits, too.
