Interview with a 20-year-old Richard D James dates back to 1992

Over the course of his production career, Aphex Twin interviews have been few and far between and as unpredictable as the man’s release schedule.

Electronic Beats points to a recently unearthed, previously unheard interview with Richard D James in the very early stages of his career, aged 20. It was broadcast on German radio station DT64 in 1992 on a show called ‘Dancehall’, which was the very first radio programme dedicated to techno.
