-BoC is absolutely 100% going to happen
The rest I didn't list are likely not going to release anything as a lot of them have released albums not too long ago, or I just don't really care enough to have a guess.
Aphex is either in 'release everything everywhere' mode or 'release nothing and hide from everyone' mode. Right now, we're in the latter and I expect it to continue for a while longer, but it would sure be nice to get a new album from him soon!
It'd be nice to hear something new from Squarepusher too, especially considering Be Up A Hello (and its companion EP) were an absolute return to form.
FlyLo definitely seems more interested in movies/visual art at the moment, but it's been a while since Flamagra came out so he's probably banked a fair amount of tracks since then. In all honesty, it's been years since I enjoyed any of his projects so maybe he needs some time out after all.
Crazy to think it's coming up two years since Sign/Plus, so it wouldn't surprise me if we got new Autechre in 2023. Sean at least confirmed that Confield and Draft would be getting reissued too, so I assume that will happen next year if we don't get any new material.
Death Grips were recently teasing the date 21/09/22 on their website, but this has since been removed, so whatever's going on there is basically anyone's guess. We'll know for sure next week!
I'd say the Danny Brown record is fairly imminent. IIRC, it's been done for a while, so maybe they've been waiting on sample clearances or general industry delays to get the thing out. My guess is the tail end of this year, or Q1 '23 at the latest.
OPN's clearly been busy producing other artists as of late, but he never keeps us waiting too long between releases, so I'd like to think we'll get a new album next year. He also mentioned releasing a live album of his Rifts/Replica/Returnal rework project, which is definitely getting me excited!
It very much seems like a new Mount Kimbie album will be coming out next year. It was heavily implied when they recently dropped their EP.
I'm hoping for a new one from Yves Tumor too. He's weaved some newer songs into his live sets this year, so something is clearly being worked on. Also it makes sense he'd get something out soonish to ride the wave of his recent success.
As for BoC? Yeah, it's gotta happen.
