Beyond the radio broadcast, Warp has created a unique aesthetic umbrella for WXAXRXP with designer and art director Michael Oswell, alongside experimental photography duo Synchrodogs, which will signal the start of a season of celebrations for the label. In Oswell's own words, WXAXRXP's visual identity breaks with "the slow cancellation of the future by manically mining and recontextualizing Warp's visual history and projecting it into A Beautiful Purple Future". Look out for further celebrations, events and products later in 2019.

WARP
Incubated in the charged artistic atmosphere of outlaw UK dance music in the late 1980s and early '90s, Warp quickly became synonymous with deeply adventurous experiments in sound, which also happened to capture the imagination of a wide and inspired audience. This idea of enabling idiosyncratic work to find an audience beyond the underground has come to define the label throughout its evolution into an electronic music cornerstone and eventually into the institution of visionary post-genre music that it is today.

From longtime collaborators to urgent new voices, Warp has been a consistent home for misfit artists and their distinctive visions, with a roster that has forever defied categorization.

NTS
NTS is a global music platform and radio station, broadcasting from over fifty cities every month. NTS started as a DIY passion project in Hackney in 2011, as an alternative to stagnant mainstream radio. Since then NTS has expanded with permanent studios in Los Angeles, Manchester and Shanghai and has 600+ resident artist and DJ hosts. Consistently championing the underground scene and a leading voice in alternative culture, over half the music played on NTS isn't available on Spotify or Apple Music. With a growing global audience of 1.5 million monthly listeners, NTS is broadcasting the best in underground music on a mass scale - completely free of charge and without on-air advertising.
