‘Tis the season for Aphex Twin fans, with the debut of two new edits of ‘Avril 14th’
It’s giving season for Aphex Twin. The UK producer has discreetly released new edits of one of his most career-defining songs, “Avril 14th,” via his online store. With the original taken from his 2001 album Drukqs, the newly released versions are taken from a session in 2009, where he re-recorded the tracks in their new form. “avril 14th reversed music not audio” and “avril 14th half speed alternative version” are available via the Aphex Twin website, while a third track that was posted and later removed has been posted by a fan to SoundCloud.
These new versions of “Avril 14th” come at the close of one of Aphex Twin’s busiest years in some time, releasing a new EP, BBC documentary, and opening up his entire Warp Records library to the world.
