British dance music veteran Aphex Twin is done with performing as gigs have become "too easy".

The star, real name Richard D. James, has shunned large music events in recent years, preferring instead to perform undercover Dj sets at obscure festivals, and he has now hinted he may give up playing live for good.

He tells Britain's Q Magazine. "I've done so many gigs now, I don't really want to do any more. I've done every single variation possible. If you've got loads of fans it's always going to be good. It can never go wrong. It's a bit too easy."
