I wouldn't be surprised if this was just some material he found on his computer that he made around the time he was putting together Syro. It's fine, but when it comes to Aphex Twin that's a disappointment.
I take that back. It suddenly clicked, I'm reminded of drukqs
, and now I really love it. Weird how that happens sometimes.
Also the official video (the unofficial one above was taken down) is a proper mindfuck and a half.
Funnily enough, I put BBC 6 Music on last night, and it was halfway through the Aphex track when I switched on. I thought it sounded pretty good, and wondered what was wrong with you.
Having said that, I liked Syro
quite a lot, I think he's heading down really strange rhythmic paths with his more recent works, and I like that.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
