They're all here, Forgemasters, LFO, Sweet Exorcist and of course Coco Steel and Lovebomb. Bleepy and funky, vocal-less tunes of the time, they're great floor fillers, especially the last. Timeless and very listenable, I have several of these tracks on vinyl anyway, so it's nice to have the convenience of CD.

I bought this ages ago but didn't get around to playing it until recently. It was released at the turn of the century in order to celebrate Warp Records' tenth anniversary, and has a bunch of singles from the very early years of the label, mostly 1989-90, with one track from 1993. When I think of Warp I think of Squarepusher, Boards of Canada, Autechre, Aphex Twin and the like, but they came later and they aren't on Classics (instead, they're on We Are Reasonable People, which came out in 1998). Most of the artists on Classics faded into obscurity after releasing a few singles on the label, and so the album often feels like a kind of Warp Records: Alpha Edition. Listened to in one go it gets monotonous, but the highs are higher and more numerous than the lows, which aren't so bad.

I say monotonous. With one exception the tracks are all straightforward four-four electronic beats with no syncopation and no breaks, which is fair enough - Warp started out as a bleepy techno label - but for a movement that looked to the future the rhythms feel very conservative and staid nowadays. Warp's early records had a consistently beepy style which is epitomised by Sweet Exorcist's "Testone", track three. The production sounds very spartan nowadays, but despite a melody based on just two notes it's still an engaging, evolving listen over the course of its seven minutes. The problem is that - even though it's right near the start - it's placed just after two other bleepy techno tracks, and... "I get it already." Okay, to be fair "Track with No Name" has swishy noises instead of bleeps, but you know what I mean.

The tracks on here are early nineties techno/rave from the best label of the genre/era. Theres no competition so easily available to buy. You could spend months and lots of lovely lolly trying to do better and still end up with a load of hiss pop and crackle. Seriously though this is the stuff that got me into Acid house techno rave on the dancefloor. Madchester comes close with the stone roses happy mondays inspiral carpets and followers but that was best left at home come the weekend the best thing to do was hit the floor with your funky dance routine whistle posse in effect reach for the lazers and never come down I'm still recovering from the Nightmares on Wax. House music all night long house music all night long only for the headstrong.

Paradigm. Exeunt. Cormorant. Exegesis. Prompt flange. Alpha Omega face slowly melting. Morley locates sphincter nozzle. Music of ghost memory enters nostril sideways. Leaves.
