Electronic mastermind plays new material in recent DJ set.

Listen: New Aphex Twin Music

When Richard D. James, aka Aphex Twin, announced a few DJ dates in Europe, we hoped he’d break out some new beats as part of his sets. And he’s doing exactly that. A spokesperson for Aphex’s label, Warp, told us: “Richard himself says his sets are full of unreleased tunes.”

Even better: Somebody captured six minutes of new material at last weekend’s Aphex gig at Metz, France’s Centre Pompidou and put it up on YouTube. (Thanks to Ben Capraro for the tip.) The video just shows James backed by a flashing screen but the audio is impeccable— and the new stuff sounds dreamy and propulsive in all the right places. (No word on when or if the unreleased tunes will become available.) Watch the clip below.
