Listen to the acid-filled set

An Aphex Twin session from 1992 has been unearthed and uploaded to soundcloud.

The session was performed on John Peel’s radio show on May 12th 1992 as one of his iconic Peel Sessions.

Unearthed by Paul Woolford, he’s also uploaded a live set recorded at Sheffield Hallam University in 1993.


Discovering the tape during a Spring clean, the XL Recordings producer accompanied the upload with the message “Cleaning out the dark corners and found this racket.”

2014 saw the release of ‘Syro’, Aphex Twin’s first album for 13 years. It received praise from all corners, with NME describing it as “a new clutch of hyper-intricate electro-funk jams so crammed with melody it feels like they might at any minute pop and coat you in goo”.

‘Syro’ was followed by the EP ‘Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments PT2’ in January 2015. You can listen to the session from 1992 below.
