It’s been 13 years since the release of ‘Druqs’, so you would think there’s a purpose behind the AFX blimp skirting the dark skies of London yesterday. Given recent launches, it feels like Warp Records are steering another cryptic marketing campaign alongside James, after all, they just wrapped up a similar strategy with Boards of Cananda only recently. Furthermore, Aphex has openly said he has enough material to release another 6 records, and although he’d be the type of person to release all 6 on one day, one would clearly be good enough I feel. An Aphex Twin stencil has also appeared out side Radio City Music Hall in New York, though there’s no direct correlation.
