Hangable Auto Bulb by Aphex Twin
Released: Nov 1995
Label: Warp Records
Originally released as a pair of vinyl-only EPs in 1995, and compiled in 2005, Hangable Auto Bulb finds Aphex Twin making even darker, weirder material as AFX. Jungle's slice-o-matic beat science dissolves like a mercury spray of skittering beats and beatbox hiccups. Wags called it "drill 'n' bass," but that only held true if you considered tools of the Fisher-Price variety: the keening synth melodies and rubberized cadences never lost sight of Aphex Twin's most playful instincts, even on charcoal-coated, church-choir rave-ups like "Wabby Legs." This is one of experimental dance music's undisputed classics.
