Aphex Twin makes AFX bonus track ‘Umil 25-01’ public – listen

The track had been exclusive to those who bought 'Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008)' through Bleep

Aphex Twin has made his track ‘Umil 25-01’ available across various streaming services today, yet made no mention of the track across his social media.

‘Umil 25-01’ was initially available only as a bonus track to those who pre-ordered his ‘Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008)’ EP through the Bleep.com service earlier this year, and sits alongside the EP in terms of style.

The eight-track EP was released on Warp Records on August 21, and represented a return to the AFX moniker that Richard James had previously abandoned following his 2004 vinyl-only ‘Analord’ series.

It was given another outing this summer, following on from ‘Syro’, a first traditional-style studio album in nearly 13 years, which was released under James’ normal Aphex Twin heading.

The five-minute former bonus track was uploaded quietly earlier today, marked as a ‘single’ on Spotify.

‘Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008)’ follows some heavy recent dabbling in Soundcloud tracks over the past year that has seen Aphex Twin upload more than two hundred different cuts on the service, dating back to the 1980s.
