Earlier this month, Aphex Twin teased a new release. "The Aphex Twin Cheetah EP uses digital sound generation techniques combined with wave sequencing technology to bring you sounds with movement and depth rarely found on records today," an advertisement declared. "To assure you that your Cheetah EP will give you many years of enjoyment, please be sure to read the owners manual carefully before attempting to operate the Cheetah EP."

Another taste of the record arrived this week in the form of a new video for "CIRKLON3 [ ????????? mix ]." The visual is reportedly directed by a 12 year-old named Ryan Wyer who lives in Rush County, Dublin. If you were waiting to watch seven minutes of children dancing in Aphex Twin masks, here is your chance.
