An introduction to pioneering British electronica label Warp Records, to mark its 30th anniversary.

REVIEW: Flying Lotus – ‘Flamagra’ (Warp Records)

The first Flying Lotus album in five years, ‘Flamagra’ sees Steven Ellison exploring his life-long passion for hip-hop but plays it slightly too safe on occasion.

CULT ’90s: Aphex Twin – ‘Windowlicker’ EP

Aphex Twin’s 1999 EP ‘Windowlicker’, combined with its memorable video, was so far ahead of its time that it still sounds cutting-edge today.

REVIEW: Aphex Twin – ‘Collapse’ EP (Warp Records)

Combining sonic curveballs with accessible, dare we say straightforward moments, ‘Collapse’ is absolutely classic Aphex Twin material.

REVIEW: Oneohtrix Point Never – ‘Age Of’ (Warp Records)

Daniel Lopatin’s latest Oneohtrix Point Never album ‘Age Of’ almost defies categorisation entirely, an enjoyable mess of musical and thematic contradictions.

CULT ’90s: Boards Of Canada – ‘Music Has The Right To Children’

A cornerstone for electronica and one of the Nineties’ most influential albums, revisit Boards Of Canada’s 1998 debut ‘Music Has The Right To Children’ on its 20th anniversary.

REVIEW: Kelela – ‘Take Me Apart’ (Warp Records)

Pulsating, heady and intricately vulnerable, Kelela‚Äôs debut album ‘Take Me Apart’ is a strong musical statement in the world of innovative R&B.

REVIEW: Mount Kimbie – ‘Love What Survives’ (Warp Records)

Mount Kimbie’s third album ‘Love What Survives’ sees them go further down the path of third-party collaboration with their post-dubstep sound, and it’s enjoyable without being definitive.

REVIEW: !!! – ‘Shake The Shudder’ (Warp Records)

!!!’s seventh studio album feels very slightly tired and old-fashioned, despite the kind of indie-dance floor fillers they’ve been turning out for over 15 years now.
