In honor of its 30th anniversary, Warp Records has been having a celebratory year. This past summer, the label threw a three-day online radio festival called WXAXRXP, broadcasting rare songs from legendary Warp acts like Boards of Canada and Flying Lotus. Now, Warp is getting ready to drop WXAXRXP Sessions, a 12-inch vinyl box set compiling 10 memorable and previously unreleased radio performances. Ahead of the collection’s November 15th release, the label has shared a 10-track sampler featuring one tune from each individual session. Stream it below via Spotify. Update: You can listen to the full set here.
The sampler includes a rare track from Aphex Twin called “Slo Bird Whistle”, plus an unearthed song from Boards of Canada’s Peel Session, now mastered for higher quality. There’s also Flying Lotus’ previously unreleased “Golden Axe”, featuring an impressive full band consisting of Thundercat, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, and Ravi Coltrane. Also on the compilation are tracks from Bibio, LFO, Mount Kimbie, and Oneohtrix Point Never.
