“Please be sure to read the owner’s manual carefully before attempting to operate the Cheetah EP.”
Posters advertising the Cheetah EP have appeared bearing logos from both Aphex Twin and his longtime label Warp. The text and artwork mimic a vintage magazine ad spread.
“The Apex [sic] Twin Cheetah EP uses digital sound generation techniques combined with wave sequencing technology to bring you sounds with movement and depth rarely found on records today,” it reads while warning users to read the instructional manual and to mail remixes to the Warp offices.
