'Horny' From His Work, Aphex Twin Announces New EP

Aphex Twin just announced a new 14-track EP on Twitter. This EP will come almost immediately (relatively speaking) after his 2014 album Syro which was his first major release since 2001. Syrodebuted at #1 on Billboards Dance Chart and #11 in their top 200. So why the sudden creative outburst?

The new EP is titled "COMPUTER CONTROLLED ACOUSTIC INSTRUMENTS PT2" and appears to take the coded Syro look to new extremes. The EP will be available January 23rd on Warp Records. Could this be a major sign that electronic music is breaking out of a gimmick state? Aphex Twin is much the opposite of a big name trying to appeal to a larger fan base. And that's something to get horny about.
