Release Date 11/15/2019
With just over a week to go before the Warp Records 30th anniversary celebration WXAXRXP Sessions series hits the shelves (and for those who’ve preordered - their doormats with a thud!), the label have released a taster of the music included. A 10 track sampler featuring one track from every session included in the 10 disc box set and 12" series is available to stream now.
WXAXRXP Sessions features ten specially selected sessions recorded for radio from across the history of the label, from Peel sessions in the very early days right up to the aforementioned WXAXRXP x NTS weekend. These releases present each session in the highest quality, adorned in beautiful packaging designed by Michael Oswell, with photography by Synchrodogs and available as individual vinyl and digital releases through all good record stores and as a limited one-time-pressing box set via Bleep.com.
