Aphex Twin just dropped the first video from his Cheetah EP (due July 8th, preorder available here). Watch the video for ‘CIRKLON3 [Колхозная mix]’ (the fifth track on the EP) below. According to Warp records, the video was “directed by Ryan Wyer, aged 12, of Rush, County Dublin.” Wyer also stars in the footage. It’s the first Aphex Twin video in 17 years.

To learn Ryan’s remarkable story, read the Culture Creature interview with Ryan Wyer and his mother.

The video captures the twisted Richard D. James aesthetic with lo-fi recording, council estate kids wearing paper Richard D. James masks, and general outsider-art vibe. Watch below.

BONUS: Listen to Swedish rockers Dungen perform an incredible instrumental cover the Aphex Twin classic ‘Alberto Balsam.’
