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).
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.
