Aphex Twin
I Care Because You Do

Arguably one of Aphex Twin’s greatest albums, I Care Because You Do is the last of his analogue era. You get some technoish numbers, the dog-bothering banger ‘Ventolin (Video Version)’ and ‘Alberto Balsam’, which samples a chair scrape and some metal pipes to remarkably emotionally resonant effect. Also, a classic Aphex-grin cover.

Aphex Twin
Richard D James

In a career full of brilliant music, this could possibly be one Aphex Twin's high-water marks, widely popular at the time of release. It introduced his pulverising 'drill and bass' techniques, moving him away from his acid 'n' ambience beginnings. Contains several classics such as 'Cornish Acid', 'Girl/Boy Song' etc. 

Boards of Canada
Geogaddi

“Geogaddi Boards Cruise?”, “Yeah sweet”. Aaaaah the Boards Cruise… those were the days: spontaneous late night road trips through deep countryside with great pals, blasting Boards of Canada at uncomfortable volumes. Geogaddi is pretty dark and weirdo, so we often ended up lost and a bit scared after choosing this record. 3 X 140gm LP, gatefold, on Warp Records. Beautiful Place!

Boards of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children

Boards of Canada’s legendary debut LP tapped charmingly into its generation’s nostalgia for dodgy TV reception, public service announcements and unforgettable classroom mnemonics. It did so within a contemporary framework of analogue synthesisers and hip-hop rhythms, with a great ear for groove and melody. Today, the mutant, hybrid descendent of BoC’s yearning style is vaporwave, innit. Oh well.

Boards of Canada
The Campfire Headphase

The Campfire Headphase was the third album from dreamy Scottish wobblers Boards of Canada and if it didn't quite live up to the brilliance of their earlier records, it was still a sumptuous listening experience. Exploring more acoustic textures than before, many tracks begin with lush acoustic guitar figures before the Boards stick it through their wobble board and add their layers of nostalgic synth glory. Do not underestimate this record. For both summer dreaming and winter hiding.  

Boards of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest

I still remember the excitement in the office when the promo of this turned up and the real effort we all went into of trying not to be disappointed. It sees Boards of Canada eschewing slightly their rich and textured sound for something more cold and dystopian. To that end it slightly follows in the path of artists who were also looking back at the works of the likes of John Carpenter for inspiration. Not as warm and inviting as previous records but spin it slowly and with patience and there's a myriad of evocative high points to enjoy from these masters of their genre. 

Darkstar
News from Nowhere

You should never underestimate Darkstar. The shapeshifting group have released a series of albums that always seem to take their melancholy electro-soul sound into new territories. News From Nowhere saw the band decamp to West Yorkshire, away from the bright lights of London and to Richard Formby's dusty studio in Leeds to make an album full of broad brush strokes but also deeply personal.  

Flying Lotus
Cosmogramma

While previous releases like ‘Los Angeles’ had made Flying Lotus (Steven Ellison) a buzz-act in the electronic underground, the project’s third LP ‘Cosmogramma’ made it clear that we had a special talent on our hands. This 2010 record is boundlessly creative, with Ellison incorporating spiritual jazz, free music, new-age composition, glitch and a hatful of other styles into his hip-hop-tronica core. Most impressive of all that, for all its high-falutin genre concerns, ‘Cosmogramma’ remains an extremely accessible record, full of thrills and spills. Thom Yorke features on ‘... And The World Laughs With You’ - not the last time he’d be seen on a FlyLo release.

Flying Lotus
Until The Quiet Comes

2012’s ‘Until The Quiet Comes’, the fourth studio LP from Flying Lotus, represents a hugely important step in the producer-composer’s career. While previous FlyLo releases had touched on jazz - both earthly and spiritual - these influences had largely been incorporated to serve the producer’s ultra-whacked brand of hip-hop and neo-IDM. However, on ‘Until The Quiet Comes’ we find the one born Steven Ellison creating notably lusher work that draws heavily on the sounds of Alice Coltrane and Sun Ra. Synths and beats still play a part, but the way that Ellison prioritises harmony and reverie here paved the way not only for subsequent FlyLo triumphs like ‘You’re Dead!’ but also the great records we’d get from The Comet Is Coming and Floating Points later in the decade. Thundercat, Jonny Greenwood and Thom Yorke contribute.

Grizzly Bear
Shields

Always good for a tune, old Grizzly Bear. The New Yorkers had a point to prove on ‘Shields’ – after all, this 2012 LP was the first full-length that the band released since their 2009 LP ‘Veckatimest’ pushed them into the upper-echelons of the alternative rocksphere. Mind you, if Grizzly Bear were feeling the pressure then they didn't show it here, pooling their considerable songwriting resources to come up with another set of harmonious indie-rock anthems.

Oneohtrix Point Never
R Plus Seven

‘R Plus Seven’ is Oneohtrix Point Never’s sixth studio album but the first he’s released since signing to Warp Records. Daniel Lopatin’s new surroundings suit him well, with ‘R Plus Seven’ combining his signature brand of uncanny hypnagogia with the IDM and electronica innovations of Warp luminaries like Boards Of Canada and The Black Dog. One can also detect the influence of Vangelis, Lapalux and Daedelus.
