Following his performance at Warehouse Project back in June, Aphex Twin has unarchived a track that stretches all the way back to 1995. Called “Slo Bird Whistle,” the song saw only two moments where it was available to the public: once when it was played in a Peel Session in ‘95 and once when it was briefly up on SoundCloud in 2015.

Released by Warp Records, the song is part of WXAXRXP Sessions, a 10-track compilation of past radio sessions from various artists like Flying Lotus, Boards of Canada and Oneohtrix Point Never in celebration of the label’s 30th-anniversary. As its title suggests, chirping bird sounds are prevalent throughout the track, digitized and worked into mid-tempo instrumentals of lush synths and syncopated basslines. The song measures a little over the three and a half minute mark (3:33) where the chirps appear twice. Other instrumental components come in the form of muted drums and light keyboards, enriching the ambient groove of the track.

Elsewhere, Yung Lean has released a new melancholy-fueled track “Blue Plastic.”
