I was at the Day For Night festival in 2016. I remember walking up to the merch table in the early afternoon, seeing only a bunch of Aphex t-shirts (and a LOT of Björk merch), while completely missing this 12". It wasn't exactly advertised prominently. It was just a white label on a wall, among a bunch of Björk stuff. Oh well, still got to see Aphex Twin live, I can die happy now.

500 pressed, 420 of which were sold at DFN merch table. This according to tweet from WARP representative. Allegedly, according to soundcloud comment replies, this will be the only run and similar releases might occur at later live shows Aphex Twin is playing this year.

One per person policy was eventually implemented before they ran out. When I went around 2:15 PM or so those at merch table were pretty vague and nonchalant about the release, only saying it was an exclusive 12" when asked about it. Like a few others I was able to leave the festival, take it to my car parked indoors, and come back before the weather became crazy. This is why some copies are mint whereas others had sleeves battered up from the show.

Music on both sides is akin to techno styles of output from labels like Tresor or Sandwell District. As far as comparable work to RDJ's other output I'd say it is most similar to his early releases with Mike Dred as Universal Indicator as well as tracks from his Bradley Strider and Caustic Window aliases.
