LISTEN: Aphex Twin Releases New Track: “minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]”
Richard D. James, better known as Aphex Twin, has emerged from musical obscurity after thirteen years of mostly silence. The influential electronic artist has released his single “minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]” off his upcoming album Syro. You can expect the full-length to drop on September 22.
As the title might suggest, the track sounds like it was created through an operating system’s command-line interface. It’s filled with moving beats, beeps and bloops, and other collections of synth and electronic sounds that transport you to a digitized world. Immersive and eerie, it’s everything we could have hoped for in new music from Aphex Twin.
