Aphex Twin Shares Sedate Rework of ‘Avril 14th’
Richard D. James sends his piano ballad to more pillowy realms
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.
