This morning, UK producer Paul Woolford uploaded two cassette recordings of early 90s material from beloved electronic experimentalist Aphex Twin to SoundCloud. The first is a Peel Session from 1992 recorded for the BBC, and the second is titled "Live From Sheffield Hallam University 1993."

Richard D. James has spent his entire career schizophrenically split between a hundred different styles, and these sets certainly reflect that disposition: the former dives headfirst into brain-bending acid and electro variations before finishing on Selected Ambient Works Volume II cut "Blue Calx," while the latter starts ambient before finishing off with some uptempo, hard-as-nails dance cuts.

In his career, James did two other sessions for the late English disc jockey John Peel: one in 1995, and a "Live At All Tomorrows Parties 2004" broadcast in 2002.
