At Field Day 2017 in Victoria Park, London, Aphex Twin delivered a face-melter of a performance. To call it intense would be a gross understatement; this set rips you off the planet’s surface and sends you careening through an alternate dimension. To have witnessed it in person would be an experience for the books, as the effortlessness with which James commands the audience through forceful acid house tonality, succinct timing and heart-stopping, battering bass is unlike that of anyone else in the game.
For those of us who were unable to make it to London for Field Day, NTS Radio was kind enough to release a stream of the full performance with fixed audio. Check out the full 2 hour performance in the stream below.
