Aphex Twin Shares "Korg Funk 5"
The track was made alongside Korg engineer Tatsuya Takahashi
Published Jul 11, 2017Last year, Aphex Twin (a.k.a Richard D. James) collaborated with electronic instrument mainstay Korg on the company's Monologue synthesizer, offering up some of his own presets and scales to be included with the device. Now, James is showing off the instrument's capabilities with a new tune.
Titled "Korg Funk 5," the track was recorded by James in collaboration with Korg advisor and engineer Tatsuya Takahashi. The song also features James' son on vocals, while the synthesizer work is unmistakably Aphex.
