What makes Aphex Twin good? I get bored out of my mind listening to his tracks.
>>
Listen to it louder

You should try listening to Syro. Every phrase of the tracks has a point of development to listen to.

If you are bored listening to Syro, then you aren't listening to it.
>>
reminder that syro sucked and is waoty

Go back listening to Daft Punk, pleb!

Could you specify what you find boring about him?

Its IDM and thats intelligent music for intelligent people like me, not EDM, thats pleb music for people who can socially interact and have sex.

the craftsmanship.
the attention to detail.
the execution.
anybody can make music on a laptop these days but not everybody has his ability to refine it into something lasting and worthy of repeated listens.

Yes IDM is much more complex than "muh 4/4 beatz"
>>
>>52048992
Most of Aphex Twin is 4/4

fact. get over it.

>>52049038
this is like master-level of condescension
>>
>>52049004
For the most part i agree minus some songs on the Come To Daddy EP and the breakbeat songs on Drukqs but you're missing the point. EDM is made specifically to dance to at raves and other social gatherings, IDM is not. IDM is a pretty shit term though I'd rather it be called skibidy bop instead.

>>52049062
He really isn't. Not nearly as sophisticated skills at forming and developing a melody.
>>
the strange/soothing melodies, the mixing and overall how original he sounds.
just listen to cock/ver 10 and tell me thats not masterful mixing. you can hear every little sound.

>muh complexity

Why do plebs believe the more complex the better? Some of the best music in classical and popular music is extremely simple in form.

try listening to his dnb shit, hard to call that boring.

>>52049237
We're specifically talking about electronic music not classic or pop. In Aphex Twins case, it's true.

For me it's his subtlety. You can listen to any of his tracks countless times and hear something new every time.

>>52049349
afx is not always complex, stop with that

Not saying you're wrong but it's not like the opposite is true either.
