At the tail end of last week, record shops received a mysterious advertisement for a new release from Aphex Twin, titled Cheetah EP. The description didn't talk too much about the actual EP itself, but rather described something like a synthesizer that needed to be "programmed" so that users could "create any superb patches and tones".
Now we have been graced with the official announcement, along with a tracklist and release date. The selection references Cirklon, a multi track hardware sequencer, along with Cheetah which popped up when Aphex Twin was sharing unreleased music on Soundcloud.
Cheetah EP from Aphex Twin is due to be released July 8 on vinyl, CD, digital and limited edition cassette via Warp Records.
