Over the past weekend, Warp Records celebrated its 30th anniversary with a takeover of online station NTS Radio.

Listeners tuning into the station, which is dedicated to underground music, enjoyed 100 hours’ worth of music from the pioneering electronic music label’s legendary roster. The likes of Aphex Twin, Boards Of Canada, Squarepusher and Nightmares On Wax were all featured.

Besides music, the weekend takeover also featured exclusive mixes, tributes and giveaways. This involved Novation, who gave away a limited-edition Warp Records x Aphex Twin x Novation Bass Station II – this unit is one of only five ever made. Aphex Twin, aka Richard D. James, was instrumental in the v4.14 update to the Bass Station II.
