Unauthorised item in the bagging area

User Music

It's been nearly a year since Aphex Twin made an appearance round the Bagging Area way and a Friday in February seems as good a time as any to post some customary, casual Richard D. James brilliance. Richard has a Soundcloud page under the name user18711971 which he uses as a track dump, sporadically uploading previously unreleased music/ magic from his presumably enormous collection of cassettes and hard drives. 

Tha2 [world scam mix] is a moody, low tech thumper full of (as a Reddit user has it) 'pseudo- transcendent beats'. Mournful synth chords and acidic squiggles playing off against each and with each other over a distorted kick drum. I don't know why it's called the world scam mix and frankly I think I'd rather not.

The title of 34 ibiza spliff would seem to be self- explanatory. The music is otherworldly.
