user18081971 is back with a bunch of new tracks

Aphex Twin has returned to SoundCloud in recent days, quietly uploading a bunch of unreleased tracks to his user18081971 account.

Six tracks have been added to the account over the last five days. The most recent upload, 'qu 1', which you can hear above, includes a note in the mp3 file that says, "See you on the other side, dad." The producer revealed earlier this month, in a now-deleted message on the SoundCloud page, that his father recently passed away, though confirmed that it was not related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can listen to and download the tracks via SoundCloud here.

The user18081971 account originally came to prominence in 2015 when Richard D. James shared hundreds of unreleased tracks.
