Aphex Twin Shares Sedate Rework of ‘Avril 14th’

performs during day 1 of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival at the Empire Polo Field on April 25, 2008 in Indio, California.

Aphex Twin‘s Druqks piano ballad “Avril 14th” was already one of his most placid tracks, but today he’s shared an even more pillowy rendition that he’s calling an “altdelay” mix. Uploaded to an anonymous soundcloud, that seems to be his preferred method of release these days, the mix takes the original’s Kanye-influencing piano lines and buries them in a seeping haze, moving the track into territory otherwise occupied by the Tim Heckers of the world.
