Aphex Twin has been announced to play Printworks this year as part of Red Bull Music Festival London.

September 14th marks the first time the Warp legend plays a club in London in a decade, the last time being at the now-defunct Matter in Greenwich in 2009.

The cult artist will be performing on a custom-built set made up of more than 306 LED panels and lasers, with visuals coming from long-term Aphex collaborators Weirdcore.

Support comes from handpicked DJs Afrodeutsche, Caterina Barbieri and Nihiloxica.

Red Bull Music Festival London is also putting on a range of other acts across the capital, including Blawan, Saoirse, Bruce, Special Request, Sherelle, L U C Y and Danielle playing at Refractions, a three-room takeover at Fabric, as well as a special celebration of UKG on September 8th with Todd Edwards, So Solid Crew, Ms Dynamite and more.

This year, Warp Records is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a three-day “online festival” on NTS – WXAXRXP starts midday UK time on Friday, June 21st.
