Rephlex Records is a record label started in 1991 by electronic musician Richard D. James (aka Aphex Twin) and Grant Wilson-Claridge. Rephlex coined the term braindance to describe the otherwise uncategorisable output of Aphex Twin and Rephlex Records. The official definition is as follows. “Braindance is the genre that encompasses the best elements of all genres, e.g traditional, classical, electronic music, popular, modern, industrial, ambient, hip hop, electro, house, techno, breakbeat, hardcore, ragga, garage, drum and bass, etc.” Their roster includes 808 State, Aphex Twin, Arpanet, Ceephax Acid Crew, Dave Monolith, DMX Krew, Dopplereffekt, EDMX, Heinrich Mueller, Kode9, Leila, Squarepusher, The Bug and many more.
