Review: For all you folks out there in radio land Warp Records is on the air with this WXAXRXP compilation pulling together an assortment of Warp artists playing Warp music on the radio. Whether it be earlier John Peel sessions or this June's WXAXRXP x NTS weekender, the tracks here provide a digital taster of what's inside a huge 10x12" boxset - designed by Michael Oswell with photography by Synchrodogs (maybe that means something to some of you). The essential who's who of Warp artists make their way to this digital compilation, with LFO signing in for a trippy piece of bleep funk alongside something mahogany and soulful from Flying Lotus, with classic strands of BOC melancholia not failing to miss out. Mount Kimbie's recent "You Look Certain (I'm Not So Sure)" feat Andrea Balency at this year's WXAXRXP Session is a highlight also next to Seelfeel's "Vex" recorded for a Peel Session back in the day.
Review: On the latest instalment of the long-running DJ-Kicks series, Peggy Gou paints a vivid picture. It starts with the widescreen ambience of Space Time Continuum's 1993 debut, "Fluresence", before moving into her own, cosmic "Hungboo" and the niggling acid of Pearson Sound's "Earwig", a contemporary cousin to Plastikman's Musik. There are other endearing oddities here, such as Andrew Weatherall's seductive house version of Sly & Lovechild's "The World According To..." and the raw drums of Kyle Hall's "Flemmenup". Gou has also included a Detroit techno classic, Psyche's "Crackdown", but balances this out with new, unreleased tracks from I:Cube - "Cassette Jam 1993" sees the maverick French producer deliver a frazzled, hazy affair - and Hiver's pulsating, acid-flecked "Pert".
