Richard D James’ knows how to keep ’em guessing, teasers for the Aphex Twin break the internet in mere hours. The icon producer and electronic innovator has gained a reputation for guerilla marketing like no other. A blimp flying high over London in 2014 was the first announcement of his Warp album Syro. Typically meaning a new album is in the works, Rich’s mastery of the acid-heavy synth work has earned him a spot as one of the top dance music influencers of all time.
Since his return after 13 years silence, Aphex Twin has released on Warp, Nina Kraviz’s трип and will even be seen on festival stage with his first gig in 15 years on November 1st in Berlin. It’s safe to say that Rich is actively back leading the post-EDM world to a new age of experimental sounds.
Is a new Aphex album in the work? Could it be something bigger? Who knows, keep watch on the webs for more info.
