What is he up to this time? Richard D. James, aka Aphex Twin has been the impetus and central figure of the electronic music scene from the 90s onwards. You might remember his deranged music videos, his habit of bullshitting the press, his outrageous stunts (such as the DJ set where he dropped the stylus onto a sandpaper disc before "seguing" it into a food blender, driving around in a tank, owning a submarine, and recording in a bank vault) or his utterly inconsistent discography, that ranges from genius to tripe. After much rumor and speculation, his record label, Rephlex, announced Richard will be releasing "Analord 10", a 2 track 12" vinyl-only EP, 13 mins duration in elaborate packaging and selling for an absurd £39.99 (~$77USD). Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq) heard it and claims (see soundmurderer's post) that it is "some of the best music" he's ever heard, "the aphex everyone's been waiting for", but he might be in on what may well be another costly practical joke. Analord pre-orders have shipped and everyone is eager to find out.
