Aphex Twin - Peel Session 2 [WxAxRxP 2019] [12" EP]
On the summer solstice 2019 the extended Warp family came together with online radio station NTS to celebrate the label’s 30th anniversary. With over 100 hours of original music programming, the weekend-long communion featured mixes, documentaries, live performances, film and sessions from the whole Warp roster including Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Brian Eno, Flying Lotus, Danny Brown, Autechre and Kelela, plus a handful special guests including Death Grips and Ryuichi Sakamoto.
Over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of music fans tuned in share in the celebration with the label, artists and each other via chat rooms, forums, social media and IRL playbacks in record shops, cafes and bars around the world.
...Your old pal Drift was one of those lucky, specially chosen record shops and it was indeed a grand old time for celebrating one of the best British worldwide names around.
Now, as the summer draws to a close, Warp continue the radio theme with the announcement of a special set of releases. WXAXRXP Sessions features ten specially selected sessions recorded for radio from across the history of the label, from the very early days right up to the aforementioned WXAXRXP x NTS weekend. In the age of immediate, unelected, often low-quality rips of anything that is broadcast, these releases present each session in the highest quality adorned in beautiful packaging designed by Michael Oswell.
This release combines Redruth's most famous bank-vault dweller Richard D. James / Aphex Twin and Mr John Peel coming together to agitate Aunty's national airwaves, presented here in the highest audio fidelity.
+ Spot UV gloss varnish cover, printed inner sleeve.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
