New minipops kid pls

just a new kid. old one was cool but he's played out, probably writing shitty metal or somethin

 

Nah man, he's currently making stuff that's proper Rephlex influenced that I could only dream of imagine being able to make at his age:

Hot damn! If this isn't the SAW1 with extra tracks thing, I hope to holy hell this is a new sound or next step.. (not tracks from 2004-2007 as fun as those are to hear)

 

edit: read back on the thread and looks like some folks are ANGRY about fans posting their hopes and sharing excitement about a possible release. To that I say lighten up you silly billies! If lightening up isn't part of your plans, maybe stop looking at an Aphex Twin fan forum when Warp Records is teasing and hyping something Aphex related. That might help with the ANGER :)

The style of the ads is almost suggestive of a throwback release, wouldn't much surprise me if it was SAW1 pt2 basically. Probably not, but the sorta 90's look of the logo done up as it is, plus it being like 'part of the surroundings' basically.... it makes me wonder.

That would be a major letdown if it was old material.

 

I'm not entitled to anything but releasing old tracks is kind of well trodden ground.

Better than 99% of the stuff I hear on the EKT section

Spotted in Manhattan.

Whoah is this real? Can anyone else confirm? I’m sitting at LaGuardia right now wishing I had seen this while i was in Manhattan just a couple hours ago.

The thing I love about these ads is how they are each created to meld into the surface on which they are located (subway tiles, metal grate, ivy covered wall, brick wall...). They’re not just slapping up generic ads. Each location was carefully selected and each ad then created to fit. This has been in the works a long time.

It's a very very striking and evocative ad campaign, Warp did good.

Would they really be putting this kind of money/effort into releasing back catalogue stuff? (SAW1.5 etc)? I can't see the ROI being big enough to justify it. 

 

The fact warp has been quiet about all of this rather than just saying "here's some old afx remastered by such and such engineer now available on blerp" makes me think this is new material. The secrecy + effort and money involved wouldn't be worth it for an album of oldies, would it?

No way they would spend this much on advertising for anything other than a new album.

 

Lol I know I sound like an entitled twat, I just really really hope it's new shiz. I love the old albums and still jam them on the reg, but interested in the next afx adventurz.

 

Guess we will find out soon enough!

Word. Let the hype build. I want to see more of these things before an announcement is made.

 

 

The only thing that is kinda spoiling this for me right now though is that I actually know who is behind all the street art for this which kinda takes away from the mystery. Much deserved though and I know dude is hyped beyond belief to have the job.
