I heard Bucephalus Bouncing Ball on the my cd for the soundtrack for the movie π. I am now really into IDM music


November 3, 2014

I'm not a fan of electronic noise music. This is why it is so surprising that Come To Daddy was the first song by Aphex Twin that drew me to his portfolio and got me obsessed with his style. This is the only noise track people often know he has made and it is a great one. The melodies and the chorus seamlessly integrate to conjure up one of the weirdest and innovative tracks ever produced. KTPA1 and KTPA2 from the Smojphace EP by Richard D. James are real noise tracks and bare no resemblance to Come to Daddy's tune. It's a completely different kettle of fish.

The other songs on the album incorporate elements of acid, techno and experimental electronic. It's a busy track that is complimented with "Flim", a mellow and relaxed tune with a fast paced beat, almost a softener to the ears. If you listen carefully you can hear James' humour as his mother comments on some of the sounds present. At one point it almost sounds as though she's about to say "Would you like anything else to eat or drink?" as she listens to his projects in his bedroom. It makes you wonder if such samples were taken while he was growing up. It seems possible.

If you are into metal music this might serve as a good beginner's album, if you are a fan comin from more classical genre, it might be worth listening to Aphex Twin's "Drukqs", "Richard D. James" or "I care because you do...".

It was the titular song that gave me the early impression Aphex Twin was a seriously disturbed individual (no doubt perpetuated by the accompanying music video). Delving further into the CD however will reveal some audio delights. I was expecting more tracks in a similar vein to the first, however, to my surprise the song that immediately follows the single is the complete opposite in terms of style! Slower, softer and more melodic. At only four songs it's still a great sample of Aphex Twin's musical flexibility.

One of the best Aphex Twin listens out there. A great introduction to his glitch-style-humor-drum-n'-bass. Come To Daddy is an obvious classic and I can't listen to it now without seeing the video images...arghhhh. Flim is a great short track with excellent textured notes. Buscephalus Bouncing Ball is RDJ having fun with glitch drums and tinkles, wicked stuff. The Come To Daddy remix on this single isn't so hot but as a whole this release it well worth it.
