Richard D. James always keeps us guessing. When last we checked, the reclusive Aphex Twin had posted over 150 tracks from his extensive archive to his ‘user18081971′ SoundCloud page, unannounced. His last transmission in July revealed that he had “found loads more old tapes i never encoded or gave to anybody,” which he planned to” upload/release soonish.”
Those tapes have yet to emerge, but in the interim, Aphex switched up profiles to stream four songs from his forthcoming AFX EP, Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008), via his ‘aphextwin’ SoundCloud. After sprinkling the page with “Serge Fenix Rendered 2″ and “oberheim blacet1b” over the past month, Aphex has now posted a new track “simple slamming b 2″ to SoundCloud, which you can check out below.
The EP drops August 21 via Warp.
It is worth noting that before Aphex’s Grammy-winning 2014 LP, Syro, his most recent new release was a split EP with LFO under his AFX alias, AFX/LFO, which came out on Warp almost exactly 10 years ago, on August 22, 2005.
We’ve never seen an artist return from such a lengthy hiatus with so many quality tracks. Then again, we’ve never seen another Aphex Twin.
