Yesterday (August 26), Aphex Twin, a.k.a Richard D. James, shared a whole host of archived tracks through his user18081971 Soundcloud account. This is not the firs time the UK musician has taken part in this kind of activity, with him uploading vast amounts of material through other similarly named Soundcloud accounts some months ago.
The new tracks that have been uploaded are a strange collection of beats, the majority of which are based around modular tones. The whole package makes for some abstract listening with weird ambient pieces, trippy soundscapes and industrial resonations, all sounding as though they have been made in the bowels of an alien spacecraft. Listen to one of the tracks below and head to user18081971’s Soundcloud account here to check out the rest.
