Aphex Twin - Cheetah
Jul 9, 2016
55
Richard D. James is back with another Aphex Twin release. The Cheetah EP is most certainly not distant to the sound he offered on Syro, as we see the legendary producer following pretty much the same complex, cold techno-inspired direction on his obtuse beats. That being said, it is easy to see this EP as an unecessary work this late in his career, but it is possible to find it inspiring that James is slowly, quietly moving towards a specific musical spot with this comeback. He still remains a very interesting artist, and an electronic soundsmith like few others out there. This EP does sound much more accessible also, but also distant and cold, as he both aproaches and distances himself from fellow electronic artists Autechre's sound. While certainly not as mind-bending and powerful as his 90s releases, this is probably a good point to start, if you're a newcomer to James' universe.
