Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Give the Warp folks some credit for modesty: where most labels would see an anniversary box as an opportunity to advertise their uniqueness, this Sheffield, England-based company has devoted two CDs of their six-CD anniversary set to the people who first inspired them. Disc 1 makes clear that they don't forget the Motor City. This is the American disc, heavy on the Detroit sounds of Juan Atkins, Derrick May, and Kevin Saunderson, with some tracks from the New York and Chicago scenes thrown in as well. Disc 2 is, by and large, the British response to this American ferment, starting with the "The Theme," by the Unique 3 (the first group Warp tried, and failed, to sign) and moving on to the more renowned 808 State and A Guy Called Gerald. This is a strong, historically informative set that moves from the lush, romantic sounds of the early Detroit school to the protobrutality of the first acid-house track (Phuture's "Acid Tracks") to the tribal sounds of the Brits. If there's one caveat, it's that there's nothing here that distinguishes this as a purely Warp set of influences. Influences is a standard selection of the tracks that rocked the English music scene circa 1989, and they've clearly had an effect on anyone who's made music with computers since. But there's nothing that hints at the strange twists and turns that have made the name "Warp" so apt for the label's output. --Jeff Salamon

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic tunes. Top album 25 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
Some of the most classic tunes from the early techno era. I'm very hard pressed to point out any weak tunes on this album. Personal favourites are Nitro Deluxe, Mr Fingers, Unique 3, Voodoo Ray, Plez, Juno, Ital Rockers.
Some of the tunes sound a little dated given the technological nature of the music but that's not surprising given that the songs are over a decade old!
Nevertheless, there's some very influential & fantastic techno music on this album & it brings back great memories of dirty warehouses and acid house parties.

5.0 out of 5 stars unmissable history of early house 3 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A great collection of early acid house classics that would nearly be impossible to get hold of now. This album has probably three of the greatest acid tracks of all time, farley - the acid life, steve poindexter - computer madness and k-alexi - my medussa, not forgetting all time house anthems --- mr fingers - can u feel it, da posse - its my life and gerald - voodoo ray. need i say more, definitely one for the old skool

5.0 out of 5 stars Take With Acid 22 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is the wierd thing. I have found 90's Rave from GB easier to find Imported from the USA and here from Britain I found what is probably the best ACID HOUSE compilation. Apart from WARP 10+2 which I absolutely LOVE unconditionally.
Only 2 tracks I dont like on this cd. Bang bang you're mine and a similar tune on the other cd the title of which pervades my memory at the moment but has a similar theme to Bang Bang you are mine OK? Only because I find them unrelated to ACID VIBES and to be honest are a bit scary. The rest of the tracks are cool. Unwierdless you have all these tracks already, then, BUY NOW. I Would like a lot more music like this myself though I find a lot of warps releases a bit too leftfield for my own personal taste. However Nighgtmare On Wax released two tracks that are my favourites I'm for real and you forgot what you want BUY! BUY! BUY! Sweet excorcist~and then after that went a bit mad~SO#. Buy this CD then Buy 10+2 and perhaps buy 10+3 remixes as well. LFO the band who made it onto Top of the Pops with a video of circuit boards EXCELLENT.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great way to remember older techno/house 16 July 2001
By "littleoldme" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For those who are convinced, as so many are, that techno was invented in the mid-90s in Britain, this is the effective rebuttal. There is nothing "newer" here than 1990, and a lot of it dating back to 1986 in Detroit and Chicago. To put it another way: when some of these tracks were being released, I was 2 years old.
However, this is far from just a nostalgic look back at time gone by. Heck, I was 6-7 years old when the album's most recent tracks were being released, so I have no nostalgic feelings towards this album, and it's excellent. It wouldn't be mistaken for a newer compilation, but all the songs are uniformly excellent. Moreover, a lot of them still exhibit that "what the heck is that?" quality that marks good techno - still sounding like nothing else on the planet.
Whether you're a scene veteran who wants to recollect some classics, or a young'un who wants a history lesson of some "oldies but goodies", this is a great comp. I'd highly recommend picking it up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Vital Document of the late 80's House / Techno genre.... 2 Sep 2004
By fetish_2000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album, being a three part essay celebrating 10 years of the warp label. Focusing squarely on the period in dance music, around the mid to late 80's. It mines the area of forward thinking producers that were experimenting with the limits of Acid-House & Techno. Compiling classics from that era that influenced the label ("Warp"), and it's own list of artists. Balancing the work between the prominent Chicago, Detroit & British artists, this gives a comprehensive guide to the fledging early Techno & house genre.

For anyone that was there the first time around, to hear these tracks....(and to be fair, this compilation is aimed squarely at you). There is an abundance of tracks that probably haven't been heard in 10 years or so. and going back and listening to all of these tracks with such a long gap, feels surprisingly memorable & deservedly nostalgic, and more surprising, with virtually every track sound as hypnotic and euphoric as you remember them. What also surprises is the very "Afro-Centric" rhythmic dance/Techno fusion sound, that seemingly inhabits a lot of the tracks here. Possibly setting the template for years later for artists such as "Ashley Beedle", and his seminal 1997 "Black Jazz Chronicles" albums, and it seems very likely that he took some of the early forms of tribal-disco rhythms exhibited here, and fleshed them out with more contemporary production, in comparison to some of the simplistic grooves here.

For example "Unique Three's - The Theme [Original Chill Mix]" is a track that is so simplistically produced, that it's infectiousness is made all the more surprising, by being one of those tracks that impresses by having an incredibly keen ear for a musical hook, and building a track around it. short low-budget keyboard chords and the clatter of sampled kick drums dominate here, with the influential compositions still sounding, if not innovative or new, still remarkably listenable after all these years. And it'll take a truly hardened individual to not have a nostalgic tear in their eye, which recalls the heady days of Acid-House raves, and harking back to a day, when Clubbing was a largely free-spirited affair.

"A Guy Called Gerald" should need no introdcution here, as his seminal "Voodoo Ray" , is likely to be the most instantly recognisable track here. And most likely the track people generally single out first, in regards to his work. Even some 12 years on it still as remarkable as it has always been, with the Echoed Drums and all superb female chanting, with the legendary "Voodoo Ray" sample sparadically shouted. It's a truly glorious moment, for a tremendous double Cd loaded with Classic Club/Dance tracks, but this track (for me) encapsulates the whole 80-90's rave/house scene. hedonistic, exuberant & vibrant, I'd don't usually like to single out particular tracks on albums (I prefer to focus on the album as a whole), but this would have to undoubtedly be the highlight for me.

"Plez" bring the acid house of "Can't Stop [Acid Rain Forest Mix]", a vaguely upbeat, tight & shouty house track, with a strong electronic feel. Like a lot of the tracks here, this was fantastically ahead of its time, and influenced many producers with its mix of early Electronica & Acid-House. And it's still a truly remarkable track now, and shows how some records truly do stand the test of time, whilst others evoke feelings of embarrassment.

If your looking for a important document into the history of Warp Records (which will appeal to some, as 'Warp Records' tends to be a collector driven label), or if indeed (like me) you were listening to these records the first time around on there release, this album is a essential purchase. Sure, there will be some that would agree that things have moved on since them, and they'd be right. Going back and hearing the production of these late 80's tracks sound 'Tinny', and a little rough around the edges in comparsion to the overly-produced tracks that we're used to hearing now.

But what it's important not to forget, is that this isn't really targeted for that weren't familiar with this first time around. As most will realise that back then....'Pro-Tools' and easily available music/software tools, weren't just an internet download away. And beneath the lack of audio fidelity, is a collection of imaginative producers making tracks that would go on to largely influence & shape the Detroit/Chicago scene some several years later. this is substantial on two levels. Firstly it's a tremendously well complied document of the early Techno/Acid/House scene on both sides of the Alantic. And secondly containing some of the most timeless (and hard to find) singles in dance music's relatively short history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for any techno fan 12 Oct 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I first saw this CD, it was "Oh no, another House retrospective with the same old songs." But this is the best damn retro compilation I've ever heard. Hard to think that most of this music was recorded when the average "raver" was still in diapers. There's lots of stuff here that I'd never heard before, some truly classic stuff showing the whole range of dark -> happy acid tracks, stuff that most of us either no longer have on vinyl and would never manage to find again. Given the technological limitations of the time, a lot of these artists had to rely a lot more on raw groove and melody as opposed to studio trickery - some of this stuff might have been done only with an 808 and a 303, but you find yourself listening to it again... and again...

5.0 out of 5 stars chicago, detroit, and beyond... 18 Jan 2003
By "cuddleskinkaed" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
what else can be said of a compilation containing the likes of larry heard, derrick may, and juan atkins? CLASSIC ... this is indeed techno in its purest form... "those of us who were there" know techno started in detroit). skip straight to "nude photo": giggling bleeps bouncing playfully around a tight-lipped 4/4 beat. so serious it's funny, or is it the other way around? candy for ears and feet.
