OK, look guys, I know an appeal to verbosity from me will be about as popular as an appeal to racism from Bill O'Reilley, but would it kill any of you to maybe not just throw up tons of Youtube videos with no descriptions, and maybe just choose something and explain why you like listening to it and, more importantly, why any of us might be interested in it? because right now, it's just pages and pages of random Youtube videos with nothing to actually tell me why I should listen to any of it. This page alone, there are seventeen links to Youtube videos, and not a single gotdam word to explain why I should spend time listening to any of them. I'd be more productive clicking random videos on my Youtube feed, simply because those are at least soemwhat catered to my viewing history and tastes.
If I'm going to kill my browser by loading up a page full of Youtube videos, I'd at least like something to encourage me to watch any of them. Right now it's just random links for the sake of it. Here:
A tune from the reigning king of dissonant electronic music, which combines his ambient leanings with a more structured melodic focus, while keeping his signature fondness for strange noises. It works as both an exercise in showcasing Aphex Twin's broad musical tastes, and his ability to transform even the scraping of a chair leg into a musical noise that fits in the context of a song. A perfect entrance point for anyone looking to explore the Twin's more ambient focused recordings.
Just give people a reason to click the links you're posting.
But the vast majority of his work is original stuff, such as:
Although it's hard to pick out a single track that represents his stuff well. A lot of what he does it probably best described as ambient, experimental electronic music. He often uses a lot of very unusual sounds in his compositions, sometimes sampling non-musical sounds too. But then some of his stuff isn't really ambient at all, and is rather layers upon layers of complex and unusual percussive elements.
Since there seems to always be a lot of love for hip-hop in this thread, this remix might be appreciated too:
And the best part is that this guy gives away all his work totally free too:
