The enigmatic UK producer Aphex Twin is back to screw with you on an audio and visual level with his first song ‘T69 Collapse’ from his forthcoming EP.
The first glimpse of music from the artist comes after a recent run of display advertising across various locations, including London Underground stop ‘Elephant & Castle’ and a recent BBC interview detailing his colourful career so far.
The first single was originally planned for a premiere on Adult Swim yesterday, but was taken down after it failed the photosensitive epilepsy test. However, the song has now since been uploaded to YouTube.
The T69 Collapse video made by AV guy Weirdcore is filled with data, messages and strobing. All you have to do is pause and try and interpret what is being said on any given frame. Kind of misspelled philosophy and thoughts of some kind. The song itself is surprisingly pleasant and filled with 808 cowbells. It’s on the more digestible melody driven spectrum of his music.
There’s various options on Aphex Twin’s site to buy this EP. Track list below!
