WARP AND NTS RADIO TEAM UP FOR WXAXRXP ONLINE MUSIC FESTIVAL

THREE DAY TAKEOVER OF BOTH NTS CHANNELS PLANNED IN CELEBRATION OF 30 YEARS OF WARP RECORDS
FEATURING OVER 100 HOURS OF EXCLUSIVE MIXES, LIVE SESSIONS, VIDEOS, UNRELEASED MUSIC AND CURATED ARCHIVE RECORDINGS AS RADIO SHOWS
CONTRIBUTIONS FROM BOARDS OF CANADA, FLYING LOTUS, APHEX TWIN, BRIAN ENO, DANNY BROWN, AUTECHRE, KELELA AND MANY MORE SPECIAL GUESTS TO BE ANNOUNCED
FRIDAY JUNE 21st - SUNDAY JUNE 23rd ON WWW.NTS.LIVE/WXAXRXP

Warp will join forces this month with online music platform NTS from June 21st - June 23rd for WXAXRXP - a three-day radio takeover marking the pioneering record label's 30th anniversary. Conceived as an online communion for music fans of all stripes, and an act of gratitude for thirty years of support, the WXAXRXP takeover will see the entire active Warp roster contributing to a non-stop, weekend-long spectacle of mind-bending live music and art.
Over the course of the three days, tune into exclusive mixes, live sessions, videos, unreleased material, new compositions and experimental free-form radio, streamed globally via both live channels on the NTS site and mobile apps. In addition to Warp artists, there will be contributions from some of the label's closest visual collaborators as well as a few special guests near and dear to Warp.
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 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.
