If you’re in the mood for more Taylor Swift after listening to her newly released album 1989, try this SoundCloud playlist by cartoonist David Rees, who remixed Swift songs with tracks by the electronic musician Aphex Twin. You will probably be surprised by how well Swift’s “You Belong With Me” goes with Aphex Twin’s “Avril 14th.”

On the rationale for the playlist, collectively dubbed #AphexSwift, Rees wrote in a Tumblr post, “Taylor Swift made her name by writing big-hearted confessional songs for tween girls. But a lot of Aphex Twin’s music (especially on the Richard D. James album, from which most of these tracks are culled) is also super romantic.”

You can listen to the eight tracks here:
