So that Caustic Window LP test pressing has surfaced finally and it’s sounding really really good. Some of my favourite AFX maybe.
James has been making music since he was little over 10 and has “over 100 hours” of unreleased music, and to have made his own software to compose with, including algorithmic processes that automatically generate beats and melodies; He also claims to experience synaesthesia, and that he is able to incorporate lucid dreaming into the process of making music – pretty evident from almost everything he’s made haha.
In an interview in The Guardian, AFX said: “I’m just some irritating, lying, ginger kid from Cornwall who should have been locked up in some youth detention centre. I just managed to escape and blag it into music.”
“I did it because the thing in techno you weren’t supposed to do was to be recognized and stuff. The sort of unwritten rule was that you can’t put your face on the sleeve. It has to be like a circuit board or something. Therefore I put my face on the sleeve. That’s why I originally did it. But then I got carried away.”
Here’s some of our favourites below… check the rest here
