"Here it is: a 26 track compilation of Aphex Twin's blinding remixes (plus two previously unreleased Aphex tunes). We know it's just devalued your precious 12" collection somewhat, but you can't blame us. Encompassing 10 years of always evolving, unpredictable Aphex Twin sounds, from acid tax and raved-up bangers to strangely commercial pop and his inimitably delicate, ambient empathies, 26 Mixes For Cash is a proper milestone, a greatest hits on the sly from the original leader of the dance music pack. The Aphex Twin way is to approach mixes more like 'fixes'. If a track was any good, it wouldn't need remixing, would it? This could explain the presence of Jesus Jones' 'Zeros and Ones', and why his Curve remix, released only as a single-sided 12", is renowned as a complete classic. It might also provide a clue as to why he has turned down remix requests from Bjork, Madonna, Limp Bizkit and Super Furry Animals to name just a few." Artists include: Seefeel, Gavin Bryers, Gentle People, Kinesthesia, Philip Glass, Buck Tick, Jesus Jones, Nav Katze, Saint Etienne, The Beatniks, Nine Inch Nails, Nobukazu Takemura, Die Fantastischen Vier, Phillip Boa & The Voodoo Club, Curve, Mescalinum United, Nine Inch Nails, Baby Ford, Meat Beat Manifesto, DMX Crew, Wagon Christ, and Mike Flowers Pops."
