Selected Ambient Works Vol II remains a high watermark of Nineties electronica.
Like its predecessor, Aphex Twin’s classic 1994 collection scoped out novel sounds and textures without ever pootling off into abstraction. Having been out of print on vinyl for some time, the set has now been reissued as a triple LP gatefold edition.
The new edition will be pressed onto 180gm vinyl, and will be released in extremely limited quantities. 1972 Records, previously responsible for reissues of the Television Personalities’ They Could Have Been Bigger Than The Beatles and The Painted Word, have overseen the repressing.
Selected Ambient Works Vol II is available now. Aphex Twin is slated to headline this year’s Bangface Weekender.
