Fans of the ever elusive, mysterious and genius Aphex Twin, now is the time to celebrate! You can now stream Aphex Twin’s lost 1994 album Caustic Window in its entirety on YouTube. It may have been twenty years ago, but this LP sounds amazing as if it was made and released yesterday. Aphex Twin just has that timeless quality that few producers ever achieve.
An unreleased copy of the album surfaced on the internet back in April with a pricetag of $13,500. Through a successful kickstarter campaign, the electronic music forum We Are the Music Makers laid out a deal with the owner of the unreleased album wherein the the LP price was reduced to $8,368 and only 500 digital copies would be made available via Kickstarter.
Richard D. James (Aphex Twin) and his label gave their blessing, and the Kickstarter campaign skyrocketed to pull in $67,000 total in funds raised. Now that the 500 backers have received their coveted digital copies, it’s no surprise that some charitable soul has made this long lost treasure available to all Aphex Twin loving fans on the internet.
Give it a listen! Let Aphex Twin extend his touch through your ears and massage your soul and get you back into rhythm with his own brand of braindance… And if you are unfamiliar with what braindance is, essentially all Aphex Twin’s music, Rephlex Record has got a definition that can help clarify:
"Braindance is the genre that encompasses the best elements of all genres, e.g. traditional, classical, electronic music, popular, modern, industrial, ambient, hip-hop, electro, house, techno, breakbeat, hardcore, ragga, garage, drum and bass, etc."
