The tor address was mentioned on the official (verified) Aphex Twin twitter account - https://twitter.com/AphexTwin as the latest status update. Implied track names and BPMs I'm guessing.

More importantly, this rare artifact popped up on eBay:

Was there really a AFX-zeppelin flying over London & New York?

Now that's actually a pretty cool campaign!

New AFX + FSOL in probably less than 1 month - exciting times!!

Richard D James and FSOL in plot to bring down the interwebs.

Wonderfully subversive act to publish link on Tor, it being fairly well known that the FBI monitors everyone who installs Tor. I wonder if they'll be buying the new album too just to keep up with the banter.

That blimp was great with the fevered speculation he was doing a gig at a beer festival in London. He'd have killed off half of CAMRA doing that! I'm sure this will keep Pete and the other WATMM moderators busy for a while.

There's quite a few people attempting to pimp their wares as leaked Syro tracks. I don't get the psychology behind it, there's more than a whiff of dog blanket about trying to scam people like that.

Another guy posted a track with this comment (does he think everyone's going to go, oh but the music's so great I must buy your music anyway, even though you just tried to deceive me):

APHEX TWIN LEAK?

Is this from SYRO? Could it be?

This video is listed as Aphex Twin - s950tx16wasr10 (earth portal mix)

I found just this one track somewhere on my hard drive by itself after visiting the link to the listings and then later i saw this; someone had changed the title to that you see above. Is it AFX???

But is that true? Could it already be a leak from the new album SYRO soon to be released on Warp Records?



No, it's not. :D

But to help tide you over until SYRO comes out, free download at: tsrono.bandcamp.com

Also listen to the reins ep and more at soundcloud.com/tsrono

Ok, but it's actually quite good. Would have swallowed it without hesitation as a serious new AFX or Squarepusher release. Don't get it too why someone would make promotion for his stuff by starting such a stupid fake show. Makes it all somewhat unappealing...

As someone who did it a couple of times waaaaaayyyy back in the Napster days (hey, I was a naive teenager, and an idiot!) - the thought process was: 'Hey I'm unknown, would love people to hear stuff of mine - so how can I raise the profile with very little effort and hopefully soak up the praises'. Doesn't work though, makes you look so stupid when people find out
