There’s a lineage that can be traced throughout the history of electronically composed music. It starts with mid 20th century pioneers Karl Heinz Stockhausen, Iannis Xenakis and Tod Dockstader and flows through melodic revolutionaries like Kraftwerk, Brian Eno and Eric Satie. Moving onto modern day Detroit techno geniuses like Derrick May and the Underground Resistance team and British legends like Autechre, the Skam Records label, B12, and Boards of Canada. However, this electronic bloodline would undoubtedly remain conspicuously incomplete without arguably the finest and most influential modern day electronic composer to come from these shores, Richard D James, AKA Aphex Twin.
