A review of the Aphex Twin CIRKLON3 song CIRKLON3 [ Kolkhoznaya mix].

 

17 years is quite a long time to remain silent: in fact, Aphex Twin has remained still for the better part of nearly two decades, following releases that established him as an absolute pioneer within the world of electronic music.


In spite of the long hiatus, the legendary Richard James finally broke his silence with CIRKLON3, a single featured on his upcoming EP, Cheetah, to be released on July 8th.


The song gets straight to the point with its simple, yet uncompromising rhythm. Aphex Twin is known for a rather dark, edgy and aggressive approach, but this song reveals a more relaxed side to the project, perhaps more dancefloor-friendly but definitely no less edgy, as the track embodies influences as diverse as techno, future funk and disco, just to mention a few.


With retro sound that reminds of old synths and vintage video games, the track feels like it could have been an outtake from the golden age of the project, yet it sounds wonderfully new and exciting, offering a new look at Aphex Twin's musical direction, which remains the same without remaining still and reeking nostalgia.
