Rumored Aphex Twin Demos Pop Up On Soundcloud
As a musician, Aphex Twin set the standard for experimental electronic music production. As a personality, Aphex Twin also set the precedent as a "troll" to the media, fans, and music festivals. The secluded producer enjoys fooling with people, and a new account on Soundcloud may be the latest in Aphex Twin's shenanigans. An account by the name of "user487363530" began posting tracks that sound similar to early Aphex Twin songs, with every song tagged as "earlyaphex" or "like early aphex."
The user previously posted a comment on Aphex Twin's Soundcloud upload of his track "Diskhat ALL Prepared1mixed [snr2mix]", commenting with the following:
"Would like to know the full setup for this track, brilliant music man. I love your early 90′s stuff so much, I was doing stuff in the early 90’s, similar to you but I didn’t know about you when I did it ! Im also 43 years old I’m going to be uploading it to soundcloud soon, gotta dust off the old DAT’s & cassettes!"
Surprisingly enough, Aphex Twin himself replied to the comment with the following:
"beautiful stuff, would love to hear more."
The jury hasn't come clean on whether or not this is an elaborate scheme by the prestigious producer, however the tracks do resemble early Aphex Twin's work a great deal. Listen to a few of the tracks below:
