One of only two radio sessions Aphex Twin has ever recorded. This Peel Session comprised of all original material at the time. Presented as a complete session and on vinyl for the first time.
On the summer solstice of 2019 the extended Warp family came together with online radio station NTS to celebrate the label’s 30th anniversary.
With over 100 hours of original music programming, the weekend long communion featured exclusive mixes, live sessions, performances, unreleased music, videos and much more from the whole Warp roster including Aphex Twin, Bibio, Boards of Canada, Flying Lotus and Mount Kimbie, plus special guests including Death Grips, Extinction Rebellion and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of music fans tuned in to share in the celebration.
Now Warp continue the radio theme with a special set of releases.
WXAXRXP Sessions features ten specially selected sessions recorded for radio across the history of the label – from Peel sessions in the very early days right up to the WXAXRXP x NTS weekend in June.
In the age of immediate, unelected, often low quality rips of anything that is broadcast, these releases present each session in the highest quality adorned in beautiful packaging designed by Michael Oswell, with photography by Synchrodogs.
From long-time collaborators to urgent new voices, Warp has been a consistent home for misfit artists and their distinctive visions, with a roster that has forever defied categorisation.
