A number of possible early Aphex Twin demos have been posted online by a mystery Soundcloud user.
The tracks were uploaded by user487363530, who had previously commented on Aphex Twin’s ‘Diskhat ALL Prepared1mixed [snr2mix]’. The comment stated: “Would like to know the full setup for this track, brilliant music man. I love your early 90′s stuff so much, I was doing stuff in the early 90’s, similar to you but I didn’t know about you when I did it! Im also 43 years old I’m going to be uploading it to soundcloud soon, gotta dust off the old DAT’s & cassettes!”
Aphex Twin – real name Richard D James – himself replied to the comment, writing: “beautiful stuff, would love to hear more”.
Aphex Twin’s new EP ‘Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments PT2’ was streamed online last weekend (January 24). The EP is the follow up to Aphex Twin’s latest album ‘Syro’, which was released in September 2014.
The electronic artist is known for his various pranks. In November, he posted four tracks online that he claimed were composed by his six-year-old son. “He was five when he did most of it,” he said. “I never showed him a thing, he worked it all out himself, mind boggling.”
He also revealed that he believes in the Illuminati and that he thinks September 11 was an ‘inside job’.
