Aphex Twin has added three tracks to the Drukqs section of his online store.
Originally released in 2001, Drukqs is Richard D. James’s fifth studio album. Of the three tracks, one is described as “new,” while the other two are unreleased versions of “Avril 14th.” But the “new” track, “Mangle 11,” sounds identical to “Mangle 11 [Circuit Bent V.I.P. Mix],” which came out on a Rephlex compilation in 2003. The delirious jungle cut clocks in at 193 BPM.
Produced in 2009, the two “Avril 14th” versions are a “Reversed Music Not Audio” mix and a “Half Speed Alternative Version.” (Neither is “Avril altdelay,” which was released as part of James’s SoundCloud dump in 2015.)
