Fans waited long enough for Aphex Twin to return to NYC and he left them stunned and mesmerized. Ambient tones and chopped samples from classic horror films and television bulletins ease out of speaker stacks 20 feet high, permeating through the giant warehouse space that is Brooklyn’s Avant Gardner. Hoards of rugged revelers of all ages shuffle their feet through the packed crowd attempting to get into position. The anticipation is building for the enigmatic Aphex Twin to emerge, the first time he has done so in New York City in nearly two decades. Outside late arrivals try to rush the congested queue as people without tickets look on miserably with dejected expressions, asking passersby for any spare ticket. “Please, just one spare ticket…” Tickets had sold out instantly four months prior and resale prices surged to over $240, it’s easy to see why. In the realm of electronic music, arguably no one has a rabid, cult-like following like Aphex Twin, also known as Richard D. James. Since the early 1990s this mad scientist has built up a reputation for producing material that defies classification and speaks to a generation of outsiders that go against the grain of society. He is their hero, their messiah, their god.
