Default Surely Aphex deserves a thread?

Upcomind SYRO release, marketing out the wahzoo, feeliings? Who wants to book him, ah go on

Lots of speculation about that soundcloud account! http://skirmishblog.net/sounds-like-aphex-twin/

Or more precisely, it was a DJ set performed behind a wall with all his mates smoking dope. He did go to the loo at one point, one drunk guy approached him and got the best filthy look ever. Other than that not much of a gig at all really.

I like a lot of his music but he really is a bullshitter, as evidenced by th unfunny press release trying too hard. The soundcloud link looks legit and the music is awful. Pity, I think he is a genius composer when he isn't being silly.

it was a dj/laptop gig and a braindance party featuring 4 acts with afx on the bill (he went on third). venue was full of smoke and strobes and crowd going mental. total confusion and a manic mix of gabba, techno, electronica, hip hop, dnb. they blew the venue pa also that night. one thing is for sure, Aphex Twin is no Richard Clayderman . Thank god for that.

sounds mental, he has a tendency to do that! half this stuff online could be Warp's marketing the other half just crazy fans putting up fake stuff, what ever it is its working. but of course thousands would be buying anyway, it has been 13 years after all.

he's played gigs in the Barbican which you'd think would show off his genius composer side, apparently they did to an extent,but he also went fully mental with ryuichi sakamoto type sounds. hopefully he's a good balance on the new release anyway.
