Autechre, Squarepusher, Rustie, Battles, patten, and More To Perform at Warp's 25th Anniversary Events
- Words: James Eaton
The venerable Warp label celebrates 25 years of releasing quality electronic music this year, a milestone the imprint plans to mark with an amibitous event series. Simply deemed Warp 25, the 25th anniversary celebration will take place in Kraków, Poland and will find the longstanding label collaborating with Polish collective Sacrum Profanum. First, on September 14, Warp veteran Squarepusher will perform an "all-new live show" in collaboration with European chamber ensemble Sinfonietta Cracovia, who will also perform music by Iannis Xenakis and other modern composers. A few days later on September 19, the London Sinfonietta ensemble will perform Warp Works and 20th Century Masters, reinterpreting songs from Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Mira Calix, Steve Reich, and others.
Finally, Warp 25's culminating event will take place on September 20, bringing together key members of the label's stable in Autechre (pictured above), Rustie, Battles, Darkstar, patten, LFO, and Hudson Mohawke to perform live at Kraków's Forum Hotel, with additional DJ sets from Plaid and Bibio also planned as part of the celebration. Taking place between September 14 and September 20, full details of the Warp 25 event series can be found here.
