Take me away from here on a Sunday afternoon (or during a rave).
I found Aphex Twin by looking for ambient music on Wikipedia, as I needed a new soundtrack in my life. I was tired of listening to heavy metal, I needed something new that would take me to far away places, something mysterious, melancholy and strong. I found all of this in Richard David James (aka Aphex Twin) who captivated me with his music made of mysterious melancholy calm to listen to as you gaze out the window sipping tea on a Sunday afternoon, alternating with violent techno tracks in a rave party after getting down on synthetic drugs. Notable honorable mentions who completed my falling in love with him are thanks to Weirdcore's visual work and Chris Cunningham's video clips.
