Ha aparecido un libro repasando la historia del ya clásico sello británico Warp Records, que popularizo etiquetas como braindance o idm (intelligent dance music). La reseña la hemos sacado de la web de warp directamente, aunque el libro ya nos lo hemos cruzado en alguna librería de Madrid, por unos 30eu.
Warp is the first in a series of illustrated volumes under the title Labels Unlimited, surveying record labels whose innovative practices have stamped their identity on musical styles and shaken up the recording industry.
Warp is a full colour book featuring interviews, unseen photos, documents, press releases and artefacts from the label’s lifespan. Also includes essays on Warp’s artwork by Adrian Shaughnessy and a complete discography, 1989-2005.
Rob Young the author is editor at large at the Wire. He has also contributed to publications including The Guardian, Uncut, Frieze, Jazz Times, Gramaphone and the Independent on Sunday. In 2002 he edited the acclaimed book Undercurrents:The Hidden Wiring of Modern Music.
