Aphex Twin’s First Video in 17 Years! Directed By A 12 Year Old?

Fans of Aphex Twin might be aware there hasn’t been a video from him since 1999. So the decision to put the direction for a new video in the hands of a 12-year-old YouTuber–and one with not a large following either–seems a bit stunning.

Here’s the press release:

We are pleased to announce Aphex Twin’s first official music video in 17 years for the track CIRKLON3 [ Колхозная mix ].Aphex Twin and Warp Records commissioned 12-year-old Dublin resident Ryan Wyer to create the video for the track from the forthcoming Cheetah EP, after Aphex Twin discovered Wyer’s work through his YouTube channel epic1:40d Gaming.

And here’s the video:
