POWER OF POP MUSIC ALBUM REVIEW: APHEX TWIN – CHEETAH

ALBUM REVIEW: APHEX TWIN – CHEETAH

AphexTwin

Background
Electronic music pioneer Richard D. James (a.k.a. Aphex Twin) returns with a new EP – Cheetah – a mere two years after his ‘comeback’ work, Syro.

Strengths
Aphex Twin has always been about experimental and innovative techniques anchored with pleasing and appealing sounds. He finds a hard worked balance between the two poles. Cheetah finds Aphex Twin de-emphasising the ambient half of his genre whilst developing vibrant 90s techno grooves.

Highlights
“CHEETAHT2 [Ld spectrum]”, “CIRKLON3 [Kolkhoznaya mix]”, “2X202-ST5”

Sounds Like
Kraftwerk, 808 State.

Bottom Line
Nothing groundbreaking but more of the same electronic vibe that Aphex Twin fans love.
