Richard D. James overdrive: Aphex Twin drops limited run LP as a mysterious online countdown appears

In case you missed it, over the weekend Aphex Twin live streamed his headline set from Field Day London. It was an utter mind-bender, a mess of augmented reality visuals, hard-out rhythms and an energy you could feel pulsating through the screen.

It cracked open the vault on much more Aphex news to come. Apparently at Field Day, a limited run of exclusive 12″ Aphex Twin vinyl records were sold to some lucky buyers. Unsurprisingly, you can now find the record up on eBay for £500.

Meanwhile, a very curious countdown started over at Warp Records HQ.

Aphex Twin offered a rare glimpse into going-ons yesterday, dropping a limited vinyl run at Field Day London and starting a mysterious online countdown.

The mysterious record was marked only with Field Day’s date and location, bearing no other information apart from a few logos. As for what the countdown is about… your guess is as good as ours.

Selected Ambient Works vol. III, anyone?

An anonymous Soundcloud user has ripped the record online. Listen below.
