Flying Lotus and Death Grips share new music for Warp’s NTS takeover

The Warp Records roster are performing special sets for the label’s 30th birthday

We’re currently in the middle of a massive takeover of London’s NTS Radio – titled WXAXRXP – by artists from Warp Records, to celebrate the 30 years that the label has been up and running. There’s been a range of special sets from various artists including some archival performances, but there’s also been a chance to hear some brand new music.

Both Death Grips and Flying Lotus filled their time slots with “100% exclusive music”. For Death Grips, who went on air at 7pm on Friday (June 21), this meant a noisy, relentless, half-hour mix of unreleased material called “Gmail and the restraining orders” (there’s definitely a story behind that one).

Flying Lotus, meanwhile – off the back of his new album, Flamagra – played a whole hour of exclusive tunes last night (June 22), squeezed in between Squarepusher and Ryuichi Sakamoto at 10pm.

Still to come over the course of today are sets from Gaika, Darkstar, Boards of Canada, and Autechre, among others. There’s also a collaboration between Brian Eno and Extinction Rebellion at 4pm, which will definitely be worth listening to.

Tune in here.
