The live-stream of Aphex Twins recent show, his first in London in over a decade was as expected – a cacophony of lights and breakneck sounds that would easily fulfil fans of ambient to hardcore.
Instead of a somewhat stable hand that captured his show at this years Coachella, this live experience was properly documented with 10 high quality cameras, one of which made it’s way through the audience at Print Works, London’s latest and possibly greatest modern venue for electronic music.
The two-hour visual and visceral extravaganza did not disappoint with the electronic music veteran teaming up with long-time collaborator Wierdcore for a visual spectacular that often took footage of audience members in real time, and tweaked and warped them to the delight of the rest of the crowd.
The set list is a marvel in itself with forty plus cuts of tonal goodness from Underground Resistence, Squarepusher and Aphex himself.
