a series of movements that match the speed and rhythm of cake

Teased with a series of street art pieces and a warped press release from, ahem, Warp Records, Aphex Twin has announced a new forthcoming EP, Collapse, with the release of track 'T69 Collapse' (warning: may trigger epilepsy.)

Mods - can we have the video link pulled please. This video failed the standard broadcast test for photoepilepsy and cannot legally be screened on television. I would prefer that visitors to the Blue were also spared the risk.

No offence to original oyster who rightly flagged the risk.

There's already plenty of videos on the blue with epilepsy warnings.

Oh nice!..like mid 90s demo graphics turned up to 111.

'Sounds interesting', I thought, on coming back into the house where the radio was on having walked the dog last night: '...sounds a lot like Aphex Twin'. It was this: having been oblivious to the teasers it was a pleasant surprise to hear it!

This has apparently also been advertised on the London tube.

Quite chill for Aphex Twin, I thought.

I am excited. My son spent part of the summer playing with loops in GarageBand and developed a few tracks that really sounded to me like he’d been listening to some of my collection of electronic/ambient stuff ... think he’d like this.

Liking this; it'll partially fill the gap while impatiently waiting for Boards of Canada to finish making their forthcoming album.

I like the bit with the... bubbling meat tunnel?

adding this one to my list of "watch during an acid trip" videos. I've been an Aphex Twin fan since before I was old enough to drive, so this is relevant to my interests. Thanks for posting fearfulsymmetry !!

That would seem a bit like doubling things up, TBH.

mmmm yes, this is sufficiently demoscene-y. Thanks.

So if you liked this, but haven't followed him in ages, and haven't heard his most recent LP, I *highly* recommend Syro. It's so amazingly beautiful and well produced and... *smooth* in terms of production values. I honestly think it's his best work yet (I'd say it's probably ANALORD++) It lacks the harshness of, say RDJ album or Come to Daddy or Druqks, probably more aking to his AFX work (analogue bubblebath, etc...) and SAWII.

I have high hopes for this after hearing this. Cheetah was ok. Not super keen on it. But yeah. Syro. So so so smooth.
