Aphex Twin – Syro


Syro¬†() is the sixth studio album by Aphex Twin, the alias of British electronic musician Richard D. James, released on 19¬†September 2014¬†on Warp. It was James’s first album under the Aphex Twin name since¬†Drukqs¬†(2001).

The album was recorded over several years on a wide range of equipment setups. Described by James as “my pop album, or as poppy as it’s going to get”, it incorporates styles such as techno, synth-funk, breakbeat, acid house, and jungle, as well as edited vocal samples of James and his family. The artwork features a detailed list of its production and promotional costs. A cryptic viral marketing campaign included an announcement on the dark web and listening events in cities around the world. The album was preceded by the lead single “minipops 67¬†[120.2]”.

Syro received critical acclaim and placed in several international charts, peaking at number 11 in the US Billboard 200 and number 8 in the UK Albums Chart. It was nominated for the Choice Music Prize and the 2015 Mercury Music Prize, and won the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album.
