[Audio] Aphex Twin – “I’ve Got Six [Unreleased] Albums Completed”

Aphex Twin

Richard D. James revealed that he has “six albums completed” in an interview with style magazine AnOther Man. When asked about new material James responded –

I’ve got six completed. Two are very non-commercial, abstract, modular-synthesis, field recordings – those I finished four years ago. Another one is Melodies From Mars, which I redid about three years ago. There’s one of stuff I won’t go into; a comp of old tracks which is never really finished and always changing; and then one I’m working on now. There are also loads of tracks which don’t belong anywhere.

James’s last studio album was 2001’s Drukqs. Since then, the only formal signs of life were a remix comp, a collection of EPs, and a music video – years late – for the 1999 track Nannou. In 2009, Warp Records boss Steve Beckett told BBC 6 Music a new Aphex Twin record would “hopefully” be put out by the end of that year. Eighteen months later, there’s still nothing on the calendar.

Elsewhere in the interview, James described music as “adding flavours into the earth-mix which were not there before” and “favourite noises” these days are “wind” and “mine shafts when you chuck rocks down them”.
