''This is one of the best label biographies we've ever read... The text is intelligently written, while just as crucial is the sleek modern design which is Warp in a nutshell really.'' --International DJ Magazine
''This diligent inspection of the kinks and digressions in the Warp story reveals more of the underwiring of electronica than ever before.'' --The Wire
''This book comes highly recommended (and not just for ex-ravers) and is an essential addition to any music lovers bookshelf.'' Grafik --Grafik
Since its foundation in 1989, Warp Records has become a synonym for futuristic adventures in sound and vision. "Warp" tells the story of how a small Sheffield dance label grew to foster an international range of artists including Aphex Twin, LFO, Autechre, Boards Of Canada, Squarepusher, Broadcast, Vincent Gallo, Tortoise, Antipop Consortium, Jimi Tenor, Plaid and Prefuse 73, eventually adding film production to its list of credits with Chris Cunningham, Chris Morris, and Lynne Ramsay. Coinciding with the rise of the internet as well as radical new music and multimedia technologies during the 1990s, which placed artistic control directly in the hands of musicians, "Warp's" worldwide success had much to do with its unique relationship to its artists and a determination to remain independent and in control of its own destiny. "Warp" features interviews with the label's key artists and co-founder Steve Beckett, sections on the prehistory of Sheffield electronica and "Warp's" stunning artwork by the Designers Republic, plus many unseen photos, documents, press releases, cuttings and artefacts from the label's lifespan, together with a complete discography/filmography from 1989-2005.

I bought this book because I'm a huge fan of BoC and I wanted to more more about them. Though, I was really interested by the rest of the book and my expectations were surpassed! I now know about many amazing artists and an awesome record label :)
