Electronic and ambient techno pioneer Aphex Twin, otherwise known as Richard D. James, just launched a streaming service and shop that features a treasure trove of the artist’s rarities and unreleased tracks.
The news comes following a countdown that appeared on the official Aphex Twin website last month. At that time James had performed at the Field Day festival in London and had live streamed his show for the first time as well as releasing an exclusive record.
On the official Aphex Twin twitter, a simple invitation was tweeted earlier on Thursday:

The site/shop will feature expanded versions of albums like the Syro, Analord 07 and Come to Daddy releases among others such as several demos of James’ landmark track from the 90’s “Windowlicker.”
These will be alongisde several new standalone tracks, tagged as ‘new’, that will be available for purchase. Other songs will also be available that have appeared on previous releases, including music by the Tuss, a side-project allegedly fronted by James. Material from James’ own now-defunct Rephlex Records label will also be available.
The site will allow music to be streamed directly or be purchased as media files, in FLAC format for all of the audiophiles out there.
