Syro, released via Warp Records, is the last full-length album released by Aphex Twin despite releasing a handful of EPs and other projects since including 2016’s Cheetah EP. aisatsana  (102bpm) is the last track on the hour-long album.
Fans on the r/aphextwin Reddit have noted that the track has featured on a number of Spotify playlists including Chill and Modern Classical.
Recently, Aphex Twin launched a free sample matching software called Samplebrain. Designed by Richard James – aka Aphex Twin – and built by engineer Dave Griffiths, the pair has been working on Samplebrain for the past two decades. In a detailed blog post, James explained that the idea for the sound design software came to him “when mp3s started to become a thing” and was inspired by Shazam.
