Warp Records is an English independent record label, founded in Sheffield in 1989. The most influential electronic, ambient and experimental label of all time.
A good friend of mine has the LARGEST collection of Warp Records. Promos, white labels, flexis...some of the rarest stuff I've ever seen!
I requested a compilation. With every release at hand, I knew the resulting set would be exhaustive and of course, excellent.
Five volumes to look forward to over the coming months.
