Among the pioneers of electronic music, there is one more mysterious and intriguing than everyone else: Richard D. James, alias Aphex Twin, or AFX, Polygon Window, Dice Man amongst many weird other names. For anyone who hasn't known the 90s it might seem strange, but there was a time when a long-haired ginger guy more or less considered a god by all the ravers. Each time he has a release it was received as a new resurrection. Aphex Twin was seen at the time as the future of techno and electronic music. However after a relative flat period during the 2000s, Aphex Twin is now back. And the least we can say is that he doesn't do anything like everyone else. At the beginning of August, some mysterious logo appeared in London, Torino, New York, Los Angeles or Tokyo. New album or new tour? His label Warp Record finally gave us the answer on the 6th, revealing Collapse, a new EP. You can listen to the first song online, T69 Collapse. Weird or awesome, that's up to you to make your decision, but coming from Aphex Twin we are not disappointed at all. NEW RELEASES Most people associate UNER with the melodic side of electronic music and with this in mind, we were intrigued by the style of the new release on his label Solar Distance. Rather than melodic synth lines, the EP focuses in on jackin' grooves with jazzy chords. Luca Schreiner has remixed Nina Nesbitt's latest single 'Loyal To Me'. The four tracks on the EP are from Dominante who is a new artist making his debut release, and although little is known about this fresh talent, his music has certainly got us curious to discover more. 'I Want To Get Down' starts with sparse chords and shuffling percussion, but soon unfolds into an uplifting cut of Chicago style house with summery vibes and a party feel. more at The rising German electronic DJ/Producer, who has delivered remixes for Louis Tomlinson, James Arthur, Alessia Cara, Shaggy and Pit Bull, has added his trademark stamp Nesbitt's latest offering, applying deep house grooves with a hint of tropical influence, resulting in a perfect dancefloor anthem. The original version of 'Loyal to Me' as produced by Fraser T Smith, whose production credits include Stormzy, Adele, Drake, and Florence and the Machine, has now amassed a whopping 4 million streams.
