The last 12 months have been good for Aphex Twin fans. Not only did the producer drop his first album in 13 years, SYRO, but he’s since shared a treasure trove of unreleased music on SoundCloud, a 20-track synth LP, and his Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments Pt. 2 EP. Aphex Twin, born Richard D. James, isn’t stopping there, however.
On August 21st, he’ll return with Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008) under his AFX moniker. Due out through Warp, it marks his first AFX release since Chosen Lords, a compilation collecting his vinyl-only Analord series that ran from 2003 to 2005.
As a preview of Orphaned, James has shared “serge fenix Rendered 2”. The chugging, handclap-laden opening track can be heard over at Warp’s official site.
