Aphex Twin – On (1993)


retro_turntable_speckcase-p176835142239651308en7rr_216Ever since I first heard Grimes fantastic ”Vowles = Space and Time” , I’ve had an urge to play the old Aphex Twin classic “On” that was released back in 1993. If you stream both tracks back to back you’ll surely understand why. The beautiful bleepy synth that Grimes use as the backbone of the melody is borrowed from Richard D. James ambient classic. He has without a doubt released a lot of outstanding music over the years, defining and redefining several electronic genres and sub genres, but “On” – alongside “Windowlicker” always stood out from the bunch. The video was Aphex Twins first ever, directed by no other than Jarvis Cocker. Listen and compare the two tracks below.
