I'm going to echo the sentiment that seems to be pretty prevalent in here so far that I really hope whatever this is does not sound like that mystery clip. He's done this style to death. I love the funky acid just as much as anybody but my god we have Analord, Tuss, ODS, Syro, and some of the older stuff peppered throughout his catalogue. I think I remember reading a Syro interview where he said something along the lines of Syro kind of being him capping off his explorations into that particular style and that he was moving on to other things. I'm sure I'll dig it no matter what he puts out, but I will be disappointed if we don't get some next level bangers. What I personally want is him to ditch all the gear and just shred sound on a laptop again.

Yeh, I’m hoping he’ll keep his word about that. New stuff!! Wouldn’t mind if it’s reminiscent of his older stuff, but something fresh would be good! He has shown it in the past, album after album, that he can do this. So now it’s natural that we expect the same and want more. We don’t even care if we’re being unfair though... Maybe we are.

I know these marketing campaigns can seem a little tiresome for those of us who obsess over artists like RDJ and BOC, but remember that most people are not obsessed with them the way we are. So if a relatively obscure artists only releases an album every so many years (I mean, c’mon BOC!), there’s a good chance nobody will notice and it won’t sell.

 

So they have to do this stuff to try and create interest. Personally, i hope these Warp artists that I’ve been following for years reach as many people as possible and I hope they make some money too. That’s good for the music. So I’ma let them do their thing.

True story. I’m older and more wise. But I’m just as gay as I always was.

      Seeing as he was just hanging out with Autechre, maybe they told him something.

      Based on a recent conversation I had with Richard, he says "new shit is imminent" - a new release is due soon. Let's speculate, dream, wish, beg, etc. - and hopefully this thread will be unpinned in short order and replaced with a "Aphex Twin - XXXXXX" release thread!
