Aphex Twin

Richard David James, best known by the alias Aphex Twin, is an Irish-born British musician. He is best known for his influential and idiosyncratic work in styles such as ambient techno and intelligent dance music during the 1990s, and is among the most acclaimed figures in contemporary electronic music.
Raised in Cornwall, James began releasing acid techno records in the early 1990s under aliases such as AFX and Polygon Window. He first received widespread acclaim for his 1992 debut album Selected Ambient Works 85–92. During this period, he became associated with UK record label Warp and co-founded the independent label Rephlex Records. He rose to mainstream popularity with the charting singles "Come to Daddy" and "Windowlicker", as well as for their music videos, both directed by Chris Cunningham.
After releasing the studio album Drukqs in 2001, James went into a period of inactivity as Aphex Twin, but he continued to issue music under other aliases, including the Analord EPs in 2005 as AFX and a pair of EPs in 2007 as The Tuss. James returned as Aphex Twin in 2014 with the album Syro, which won a Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album.
