And now for something completely different. Tracks by Aphex Twin, Burial, Kraftwerk and Massive Attack have cropped up in a round of University Challenge.
The popular academic quiz, which was first broadcast back in 1962, featuring a round where a team comprised of students from Jesus College, Oxford were asked to identify the performers of ‘Trans Europe Express’ by Kraftwerk, ‘Xtal’ from Aphex Twin’s ‘Selected Ambient Works 85-92’, ‘Ghost Hardware’ by Burial and ‘Unfinished Sympathy’ by Massive Attack.
The team answered Kraftwerk, Moby, Portishead and Soul II Soul respectively. One out of four isn’t bad, eh?
Warp Records shared the clip of ‘Xtal’ via Twitter. Watch it below and check out the full episode via iPlayer here.
Revisit Aphex Twin’s previously unreleased track, ‘So Bird Whistle (Peel Session)’.
