GAK is an EP by Richard D. James (Aphex Twin) released in 1994 under the moniker "GAK". The record is sourced from demos Richard D. James sent to Warp Records in 1990 prior to his signing. The album is basic at best, having being dug out of old Warp Archives. Richard recorded the songs from possibly 1989/1990. GAK 1 Is an example of early techno. Mainly structured around a repetitive 808 pattern with a piano melody. GAK 2 is similar but has a more ambient techno sound than any other tracks on the E.P. GAK 3, however is a much darker, track with racing synths and a hard 4-4 beat.
This is obviously one of Richard's attempts to create a more Rave-Techno type of sound than the other tracks on the record. GAK 4, the last track on the E.P, and is one of Richard's takes on house music, rumored to have been made as a joke many people regard it as the best track on the record due to its happy vibe, and relaxed beat.
This album was released both in CD and 12" formats.
