After garnering rave reviews for his stint at Day For Night festival this month, Aphex Twin has returned over the weekend to upload a new track to his SoundCloud account user18081971. The nonsensically titled “tnodvood104” serves as the notorious producer’s first upload to the channel in four months, and follows up the Cheetah EP he released over the summer.
“Tnodvood104” ranks among Aphex Twin’s classic ambient techno material, led by an old school drum machine rhythm coupled with haunting ambience and metallic noise samples. As the track pushes forward, a discordant choir joins the mix, bringing a haunting edge to the music as the simple beat drifts on.
It’s interesting to note that the word “Voodoo” has been written under the track’s genre tag, which suggests the possibility that Aphex Twin will surface on the lineup for next year’s Voodoo Fest. For now that’s the only clue we have, but fans of the producer will no doubt be thrilled by the potential of another US festival gig.
Aphex Twin was confirmed in November as a headliner for London’s Field Day Festival in 2017, so it’s possible we’ll be seeing the legendary musician at more events next year.
