Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut.
Richard David James aka Aphex Twin was a Soul Strut favorite back in the day. The community consisted of a lot of electronic and hip hop producers and James seemed to marry the two well. His first couple releases were more of the ambient variety while 1995's ...I Care Because You Do incorporated more rhythms whether it be jungle, hip hop, techno, while staying true to the his innovative approach to Brian Eno-style ambient music while tossing in cuts better suited for alien life. Highlights include the spiritually warm lounge banger "Alberto Balsalm", the experimental hip hop techno blaster (complete with slamming doors on the 2) "Cow Cud Is A Twin", and his underrated take on laid-back drum'n'bass "Wax The Nip". A must for the blazing crowd.
