For the first time, legendary electronic musician Aphex Twin will livestream one of his sets. The elusive producer announced the upcoming event in true Aphex fashion with a mysterious, creepy video via Twitter this morning.
London’s NTS Radio will stream Aphex Twin’s performance live and direct from Field Day Festival this Saturday, June 3, taking place in Victoria Park. The producer has been hinting at an NTS collaboration, posting a distorted video clip with a warped version of Chuck Roberts’ dancefloor classic “My House” last week.
The Irish-born producer is an experimental music pioneer, innovating a variety of electronic subgenres in the '90s such as IDM and ambient, and influencing musicians to this day. His 2014 album Syro landed him a Grammy for Best Dance/ Electronic album.
In addition to Field Day, Aphex Twin is set to perform at Primavera Sound in Barcelona and Lisbon, Japan’s Fuji Rock, and Helsinki’s Flow Festival.
