One of the true musical geniuses of the late 20th and early 21st century, Richard D. James has continued to be a pioneer in the electronic music landscape throughout his prolific, multi-faceted career. James, under his myriad of aliases, laid the foundation for ambient techno, drill ‘n’ bass and dark ambient across the span of six phenomenal studio albums and a multitude of EPs and side projects. Alongside this, he crafted a unique visual identity, expressed through his iconic logo and video collaborations with Chris Cunningham. If that wasn’t enough, he has become a figurehead for artists as diverse as Thom Yorke and Pharrell Williams. Year by year, the mythos surrounding him continues to grow, ensuring he remains as culturally prevalent as ever. With no new, officially released music since 2020, this book marks the perfect opportunity to track the course of James’ sizeable catalogue. From the well-known to the obscure, the rapid bursts of activity in the 1990s to the so-called ‘hiatus’ in the 2000s, every corner of this formidable discography is examined in vivid detail, providing insight and an impetus to discover to new listeners and hardcore fans in equal measure.

Beau Waddell has been a passionate music lover since a very young age, and has adored writing for nearly as long. At 16 years old, he is the youngest On Track author but has already been published in poetry and fiction collections, such as the Generation Lockdown compendium, as well as being commissioned by Record Collector magazine. He plays guitar, creating his own music regularly and he also prides himself on his thirst for finding new music daily in a variety of genres. He is particularly infatuated with rock, electronic and jazz. He lives in Watford, UK.
