Aphex Twin made fans wait 13 years for his latest album, SYRO. Nowadays, though, Richard D. James is practically giving out new music every other month. He’s dropped a 20-track synth LP; the Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008) EP, the first under his AFX moniker in nearly a decade; and, just last month, an alternate take on Drukqs cut “Avril 14th”.
Today, he returns with another new offering in tow, a buzzing selection called “T17 Phase Out”. A cryptic (or boozy?) SoundCloud description for the song reads, “i prolly i shntnde downoied thi coz im drunki m ena uploaded..” New Year’s Eve is not yet upon us, but it seems James has already popped a few bottles.
