Aphex Twin blimp appears over London, hints at return

18 August 2014, 14:01 | Written by Luke Morgan Britton

​Over the weekend, a blimp was reportedly sighted in London bearing the logo of Aphex Twin, leading to speculation of new material from the electronic producer.

Richard D. James released his last official LP Drukqs in 2001, but a series of previously-unreleased records surfaced online earlier this year.

Now, the Aphex blimp - which featured the number “2014” written on it - was seen above Oval Space in East London on Saturday, while stencils have been found elsewhere in New York too.

In 2010, James confirmed that there’s “around six” albums that he’s been working on. Whether or not this hints at a release of one of those is not yet known.

Check out some tweets from over the weekend beneath:
