Richard D. James, better known by music fans as Aphex Twin, just released his first music video in 17 years... and it was directed by a 12-year-old. The Grammy-winning, Irish-born Brit famous for his pioneering works in the realms of acid and techno tapped a preteen to create his first official music video in almost two decades.

The new video is for his 8-minute single "CIRKLON3 [ Колхозная mix ]" from his upcoming EP Cheetah, set to drop on July 8th.

And the budding director who was given the opportunity of a lifetime? ... a 12-year-old Irish boy by the name of Ryan Wyer. Though most of his YouTube videos barely break 100 views, his gaming channel features a few homemade Aphex videos that somehow grabbed the attention of James himself.
