Aphex Twin to release track ‘MARCHROMT30a Edit 2b 96’ on vinyl

Song originally appeared as bonus on Japanese version of 'Syro'

Aphex Twin will release track ‘MARCHROM30a Edit 2b 96’ as a white label 12-inch vinyl next month.

The song, which originally appeared as the Japanese bonus track for Aphex Twin’s recent album ‘Syro’, will be released April 6 via Warp Records.

As Billboard reports, the record will also feature a new version of ‘Syro’ track ‘XMAS_EVET10 [120] (thanaton3 mix)’, as well as an alternate take of ‘MARCHROMT’.

Aphex Twin released ‘Syro’ last September. It was the musician’s first full-length release since 2001’s ‘Drukqs’. Twin also surprise-released his latest EP, ‘Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments Pt 2’, in January.

In the same month, more than 100 purported Aphex Twin demos were made available to download for free through SoundCloud by a mystery user. The uploads began on January 27 by a member who went by the name of user487363530. The first uploaded track ‘8 Utopia’ was tagged #likeearlyaphex and included a description saying: “Like early aphex but I’d never heard of him when I wrote all these tracks im going to be uploading.” Other tracks were accompanied by similar notes.

The anonymous user had also previously commented on Aphex Twin’s ‘Diskhat ALL Prepared1mixed [snr2mix]’, while whoever is behind the SoundCloud that uploaded the song – thought to be Aphex Twin (real name Richard D James) himself – replied to the comment, writing: “beautiful stuff, would love to hear more”.
