Quoted in Mixmag Richard said "I just love electronics and music and putting the two together just came naturally. I didelectronics in college. Electronic music is just so lush basically I love messing with acid, jungle, and playing it out to my matesin a night club. Get out there and dance. Let’s have it! If anyone’s coming to my shows I just want everybody to just danceand have a laugh basically". At a Rephlex party in 2001 Aphex Twin was asked by a journalist if he used the term IDM andhe replied "only for rubbish mp3.com music that I don’t really like, basically if I say that it’s for something shit that I don’tcare about. It’s just funny how online people just copy each other and it’s so lazy. Quite funny I reckon".

In 1991 Aphex formed the Rephlex record label with his friend Grant Wilson-Claridge. Signed artists include Mike Paradinas(aka µ-Ziq) and Squarepusher.
