THE 50 BEST APHEX TWIN TRACKS

45. MIKE & RICH
‘Mr Frosty’
(Expert Knob Twiddlers, Rephlex, 1996)

Arguably more famous for its cover than its contents, James’ collaborative album with Planet Mu boss Mike Paradinas – allegedly the result of three days spent bombed out of their boxes – isn’t exactly either artist’s most cherished release, but it has its gems. Most notable is punchdrunk disco jam ‘Mr Frosty’, probably the only Aphex-affiliated track that, were circumstances different, might feasibly have snuck out on DFA.
