A long-awaited new release from electronic music master Aphex Twin is trickling out, with today's release of a first track.
Listen to 'minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]' from 'Syro', available from Bleep records.
"This is the first Aphex Twin dong fore 13 years between the publication of the first a formal music," the artist says, in typically cryptic speech. And speaking of crypto, he announced the album with a .onion url, associated with the so-called dark web, accessible with the Tor browser.
He gave Rolling Stone a rare interview.
“It’s taken people a long time to work these new tools out, and now it’s just now kind of like an acoustic guitar,” he told Rolling Stone.
“We’re half-cyborg already, whether we like it or not. Everything is based on computers – our whole economy, and most of our creative pursuits, as well. We’re not physically connected to them, but that doesn’t mean they’re not part of our brains.”
And holy crap, a single tweet last week with a tracklisting, the first tweet from his account in like 2 years.
Cannot wait for the rest of the album. Richard David James is God.
