The archaic analog trebuchet (or, perhaps, blunderbuss) of the 90’s Loudness Wars, the Aphex Dominator still has a certain utility in 2019. This thing was on a lot of records back in the day, it was a sort of secret weapon for some mix guys. Weird to think that gear like this is now “vintage”. #aphex#studiodominator#limiter#flowersstudio#recordingstudio#minneapolis

27 years ago today, on February 12, 1992, #selectedambientworks8592 received its widespread release, having been released the year before as a limited import. This was the first #aphextwin record I ever listened to, and it came to me at just the right time. I listened to it on and off, and then really got into electronic music with the release of moby’s #everythingiswrong in 1995, which was the same year #Bjork toured her #post record, with #Aphextwin in support. I saw them at #laluna in #portland and have loved his work ever since. (Bjork, too, btw)
Selected Works is a great place to start with Aphex Twin, tho I prolly like #icarebecauseyoudo the best.
