Aphex Twin’s album ‘Syro’ has just won Best Dance/Electronic Album at the 57th Grammys taking in place in LA tonight.

In our review last year, James Trigo said, “Syro feels more cohesive than anything James has done before and provides a bookend for all his previous work. It’s evident James’s production and songwriting have become more mature and refined, as you would expect over a 13-year period. A lot has changed, and entering his 40s and having children are just a couple of them. There’s still the humour and playfulness that’s always at the heart of his work, but this feels more focused. Syro delivers in every way what you’d expect from an Aphex Twin that’s had time to evolve. And taking into account the shear breadth and quality of his back catalogue, this is a remarkable achievement, highlighting not only how skilled he’s become, but how groundbreaking he was too.
