The seminal electronic label will further celebrate its anniversary with a deluxe box set.
The package is set to contain a double CD album featuring the best of Warp (one disc of which was chosen by fans), a bound book that has the artwork of every Warp release from its inception up until August 2009, another double CD set that has 20 unreleased covers of Warp songs by Warp artists past and present, yet another CD that contains an hour-long piece by Osymyso that slices and dices sections, samples and fragments of Warp history, a triple 10-inch set that collects unheard tracks from the Warp vaults and (finally) a double 10-inch collection of locked-groove loops from Warp tracks. Phew. It's a lot, we know, but if Warp is known for anything, it's celebrating its history in style.
While the tracklistings for these compilations aren't available quite yet, the folks at Warp know that you trust them, so the collection is now available for pre-order bleep.com. Orders received before 5th July will receive a discount of up to 15%, and they'll all be shipped by September 25th.
