Update: Hear two new Aphex Twin tracks (as AFX), “simple slamming b 2” and “midi pipe1c sds3time cube/klonedrm.”

Aphex Twin makes a truly absurd amount of music (and has recently started sharing some of it!), and now the electronic composer has revealed yet another new song, this time under his old moniker AFX. The track, “oberheim blacet1b,” will appear on his upcoming album Orphaned Deejay Selek 2006-2008, and officially premiered on Mary Anne Hobbs’ BBC Radio 6 show. Stream the anxious song — one of the first tracks he’s released as AFX in more than a decade — here (skip ahead to the 02:38:25 mark to get down to business.) Orphaned Deejay Selek 2006-2008 drops on August 28.
