British musician Richard D. James, otherwise known as Aphex Twin, is essentially an electronic music legend. With a discography dating back to 1985, his influence is widespread.

Today, The Smith's groundbreaking album, The Queen is Dead, celebrates its 30th birthday. Though the band may consider Strangeways as their strongest release, it's hard to argue against the legendary status of this album.

Contributing to another of our WIRE Guest Mixes is none another than Wentworth's Dean of Students and Associate Vice President for Student Affairs, Annamaria Wenner!
