It's good to have Leila back; gone for far too long she returned a few weeks ago with the absolutely stunning 'Mettle' 10" and now we're simply overwhelmed with this brand new EP. Although the lead track is pulled from the upcoming (and very exciting) 'Blood, Looms and Blooms' full-length we get three exclusive tracks thrown into the mix which all adds up to a rather tantalizing package. 'Deflect' is first off the mark and features Martina Topley-Bird on vocals. Her smoky syllables are perfectly pitted against Miss Arab's stunning crunchy production and the track builds up into one of the most comm… Read more

THE BLACK DOG / CLARO INTELECTO / REDSHAPE - The Vexing Remixes (Redshape / Claro Intelecto Mixes), Soma
A further set of KILLER remixes from The Black Dog's 'Vexation' sessions captures Claro Intellecto in a seriously up-for-it mood, backed with mixes from Redshape, Silicone Soul and Octogen. It's been some time since Claro has been in such a buoyant and upbeat groove and the results of 'Northern Electric Soul' are purely deadly, rushing with Rob Hood-esque percussion and teetering on a square bassline liable to break your legs if you looked at it the wrong way. Gwan Claro! Meanwhile Redshape provides a more restrained acid v… Read more

MODERN CLASSICAL / AMBIENT

Cat. Number: HB11

Written and pieced together by Ostermeier last year in his hometown of Baltimore, this seven-track mini-album is given that extra helping of polish by Taylor Deupree, who mastered the recordings. 'Window Frost' starts the album off with the brittle, processed sound of footsteps tramping through gravel or frost (given the title, I'd be inclined to guess the latter), only for disrupted piano phrases and droning, low level sound waves to punctuate the mix. All this invites comparison to Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto's series of collaborations, but the similarities are fleeting and avoid retr… Read more

One of electronic hiphop's most enduring characters, Scott Herren aka Prefuse 73, reaches his fifth album for Warp pushing the prog-fusion levels to almost Yes levels of excess. From the naughtily intriguing sleeve featuring some lone space bloke exploring the forests of planet Spooj in the Nodonk cosmos, to the sprawling tracklist covering 29 seperate musical ideas, it would seem that somebody needs to buy this man a cape. Moving deeper into his sonic vortex, this album is sucked into a lush world of beat driven psychedelia sharing many common traits with his fe… Read more

Wanna hear Rustie covering Elektroids? Autechre covering LFO? Leila covering Aphex Twin? or Hudson Mohawke re-working Jimi Tenor? Look no further cos as part of their 20 years celebrations, Warp have hatched the brilliant concept of inviting their current roster to revisit classic tracks from the back catalogue with their own interpretations. It's a mixed bag for sure, with a few real curveballs and unexpected delights to be found spread over the two discs. Jimi Tenor's tropical jazz-funk version of the Elektroids' 'Japanese Electronics' sets the agenda brilliantly, and even Maximo … Read more

Manchester's Julie Campbell releases her debut full-length via Warp, having built up momentum with singles 'Immaterial' and 'Intuition'. While the tone of the album doesn't deviate too far from what these singles revealed it does favourably flesh out Lonelady's musical persona. It's truly painful to have to compare yet another new Manchester artist to a bunch of old Manchester artists, but Factory Records references do seem to be recurrent throughout the record. In this instance that's no bad thing, and tracks like 'Army' really hit the right spot with their nods to Martin Hannett's trademark s… Read more

It's now been some ten years since the release of Leila's seminal debut album for Rephlex, a particular perennial boomkat fave that still leaves us shocked to this day. Making her timely return in 2008 with a forthcoming album of new material titled 'Blood looms and blooms' this 10" is an amazing palette cleanser containing 3 fresh tracks from the hands of the lady herself and featuring some awesome vocal contributions from longtime collaborator Luca Santucci and frankly stunning guitar work from Andy Cox. Opener 'Mettle' signals a massive shift in direction with a MBV styled feedback assault bearin… Read more

Geordie troupe Maximo Park have been worrying teenagers with threats of darkened flamboyance ever since their first much lauded 7"s, but to many people they will forever be known as the band that made Warp Records 'go indie'. Yep it's those guys, and even with the best set of angular guitar ditties this side of Joy Division it wouldn't go anywhere to convincing the BoC-loving Ae-fetishizing Warp fiend that it was a good idea to sign the band to their hallowed imprint. Still, that's only about five people and the rest of us couldn't give two sh*ts, focusing instead on the adrenaline … Read more

Still standing strong after 20 years of genre travelling electronica, Warp records celebrate their anniversary with a double disc of labels faves chosen by you the fans, and the label's co-founder Steve Beckett. The first disc was democratically picked by fans on their website, including a heap of all time classics like AFX's 'Windowlicker', BoC's 'Roygbiv', Squarepusher's 'My Red Hot Car', LFO 'LFO (Leeds Warehouse Mix)', and Ae's 'Gantz Graf', alongside Clark's 'Herzog'. The second disc of selections from Steve Beckett is more intriguing, featuring a ruck of new stuff like Flylo's 'G… Read more

It's gotta be said, that out of all the Warp20 releases, this is the one that's really got us excited. Cutting across 20 years of the label's history 'Unheard' digs out eleven tracks from its sizable archives, including exclusive and previously unheard gems from Boards Of Canada, Autechre, Elektroids, Clark, Plaid, Flying Lotus, Seefeel, N.O.W and more. These tracks are also available on the vinyl 10"s in the box set, but this is the only place you'll find them outside of that. Unfortunately we've got no specific dates to go from, but Autechre's gorgeous 'Oval Moon (IBC Mix)' is appar… Read more

Briskly following on from last week's '195lbs' single, George Evelyn delivers his full-length return - his first album since 2006's In A Space Outta Sound. This new collection of work from Warp's longest standing artist manages to represent both the downbeat productions he's renowned for, plus more vibrant, reggae-infused colours, as demonstrated by the aforementioned single, and album tracks like 'Still? Yes!', which slips into a sampled and filtered skanking groove and loiters there for three minutes of subtle tweaking and editing. Elsewhere, there's an authentically rough-edged fu… Read more
