Maybe it's the remastered "best of" from the soundcloud dump featuring our chosen best choices.

 

If that is ever to see light of day....

 

Otherwise, new 3D surround blu ray AV release plz

Enough with the sadistic blue balling warp, give us the good news!!

 

this, pretty sure it's the long awaited sequel to syro, would be gutted if it's not new music...

 

agree but also lol: try the roughly 2005/7-2014 for "long awaited".  or boc subforum.  weve been inundated with amazing aphex material for the last few years frankly

What is fascinating (well, barely interesting) is how quickly the flow of the thinnest scraps of information are passed around and solidified as fact. It's pretty obvious that there will always be plenty of eyes on watmm when potentially big Aphex happenings are afoot, but a lazy search on twatter will return you a flood of posts from small to large outlets all spouting the same 'fan speculation' angle - which very conveniently distances them from being wrong should their sources (ie: here) be incorrect.

 

If I were reporting on it, I don't know how much faith I would put in that Guardian confirmation - all that confirms is a campaign of some sort, and not necessarily a new album that so many journalists (pfft) have jumped the gun on. It would take a few minutes to debunk any of the incorrect points currently drifting around, or even doing some extra journalistic legwork and pointing out that it's a bit strange how the Warp site has been down for close to 24 hours (you can have that one for free, journo friends). But nah, let's just do the least possible and keep F5-ing watmm for the hot scoops.

Load of journalists are going to read this and think "yeah, all those other journalists are doing this and are fucking hacks" while doing the same themselves. 

I'm talking to you, Fact employee.

 

Joyrex's post intrigues me and worries me a little. The suggestion that this might just slightly possibly be something else - installation, gear, etc. - is a bit disappointing as it's more than time enough for a new album. 

 

 

You never quite know whether Joyrex is expressing a personal opinion or stating a fact.

AFAIK, not an installation (well, technically yes since the artwork was made for that location) or anything along those lines...

 

This is wildly on topic but that is lush artwork and better than the chartreuse blimp IMO

Agreed, but I would be surprised if that artwork has any connection to the final product(s). Just lush visuals, but placing two facing one another... special.

 

Sosw2

???

You'd think with the location where the artwork was installed (since SOSW and Quoth EP both featured pics from there) and the fact it was purpose-made for the location...

Literally joined this forum during the lull, was lurking here and xltronic - I got into BoC and RDJ literally as they kicked off their respective hiatuses. 

 

 

Konklaver

 

Finally

So how about this one for the journalists.

E&C redevelopment was greenlit earlier this month. Perhaps Aphex wants to do something in the space before it gets bulldozed.

I'm super excited about this update. Hasn't really gotten a lot of play of the last couple of years, but this past few week I've been jumping back in. Hoping for better procedurally generated 'scapes, things both more organic and more alien. 

 

But, really, when are they going to fix the clouds on PS4?

      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!
