  7. Richard David James, otherwise known as Aphex Twin, has been teasing us all summer with news of his upcoming album ‘Syro’.

    The artwork for this album is somewhat interesting, reading like a receipt of production costs.

    Syro will be released on 19th September on Warp Records.

    "I row 16 kilometers per day. A few weeks ago, I was in Germany for the Junior World Championships. My goal is to make the Olympics one day. But it can be tough to compete with the European countries. We don’t have the gym equipment that they have. And they practice with actual racing boats. We only get to use the racing boats during the race."
