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.
Rephlex has released the music of many notable and influential electronic artists, among them Mike Paradinas, the founder of Planet Mu Records, synth pop revivalist and electro pioneer Ed Upton and prolific dance musician Luke Vibert. The label has also remastered and re-released the early works of its acid heroes 808 State and The Future Sound of London, and relaunched the career of disco producers Black Devil with a re-release of the single 'Disco Club'.
Rephlex is one of the last remaining labels of the industry not to embrace digital distribution.
