Next month, Aphex Twin releases SYRO, his first album of new material since 2001’s Drukqs. There have already been a bunch of phony leaks floating around on the Internet, but Richard James will be introducing the real album to listeners via a series of group listening events happening in North America and Europe. Now, we don’t have to tell you that a lot of people are going to want to be the first to hear the record, so to make the process fair, Warp has set up a lottery you can enter for the chance to preview the album. Impress your friends by regaling them with tales of attending an exclusive IDM listening party!
