Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92 (1992)

In 1985 Richard D. James was 14, just so you know. In 1992 he was 21. You can say for certain that he was an early bird when it comes to releasing absolute classics. This, his debut, is a collection of 13 ambient techno tracks that he made over the years, analogue. The debut sounds lo-fi in a very strange way, because he recorded most of the stuff on cassette and mastered it from there.

Combining the best ambient of Eno, and adding beats and epic basslines, this became in instant classic. Excellent music to listen to at the moment, because techno is great when it's hot outside. (or lukewarm).
