Published Aug 11, 2015Richard D. James has been on a prolific tear since issuing his Aphex Twin LP Syro last year. Up next for the electronic music legend is a quickie 12-inch EP as AFX, which he's promoting with a stream of its busily-paced "simple slamming b 2."
The track surges with quick, rippling hi-hat rhythms, manic digitized snare hits and murky synth-bass before it ushers in a queasy keyboard melody. If you don't like rocking the boat, you may want to skip on the track's seasick sounds. If you're up for the journey, pop a couple Gravol's and stream the song down below.
AFX's eight-song Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008) arrives August 21 via Warp. You can sample a few more songs from the set over here.
