This popped up today on my Ipod shuffle (at the gym this morning). I forgot how much I love those Aphex Twin b-sides...sometimes they sounded even better than the single or album tracks themselves. This one, a remix of 'On' from 1993, in no way resembles the original track at all. Totally different.
The first time I heard one of those 20 minute Ricardo Villalobos tracks - you know the ones that go on forever and ever and have a tribal, chanting style to them (flat drums, percussion, repetitious) I thought - wow...that
sounds like that Aphex Twin remix. James has always been a bit ahead-of-his-time and this rare track is proof of that.
One for the headphones folks.On (D-Scape Mix)
