Previously infamous for mythical live sets with assorted props such as a razor blade stylus and sandpaper ‘records’ (try that one at home kids), it’s no surprise that ‘26 Mixes For Cash’, released on March 24, is an eclectic affair.
The LP encompasses re-workings of artists as diverse as David Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, Jesus Jones, Saint Etienne and Mike Flowers Pops, plus the likes of electro contemporaries Seefeel and DMX Krew. There’s also two previously unreleased Aphex tunes into the bargain.

However, perhaps the most famous hotwiring from Richard D James, who has turned down remix requests in the past from Bjork, Madonna, Limp Bizkit and Super Furry Animals, doesn’t appear on ‘26 Mixes For Cash’. Beck's record company refused to license the Aphex Twin mix of the diminutive American’s hit single 'Devil's Haircut' (aka 'Richard's Hairpiece'). Bastards!
James is currently working on new material and also appears (in DJ form) at this year’s All Tomorrow's Parties festival in April at Camber Sands.
