From today, December 15 until December 24, Warp Records is offering a free download via its MP3 site, Bleep.com. Titled Bleep Loves…Labels, the 11 track collection features contributions from new signee Hudson Mohawke, 4 Hero side project Visioneers, rising downtempo producers Lone and 2 Tall, electro-disco-whatever producers Boyz Noize and others. It highlights the many underground labels which Bleep carries in addition to Warp; and the fact that all of Bleep’s MP3s come without DRM restrictions (unlike iTunes and Amazon.com).
Here’s how the site puts it:
“Bleep Loves… Labels” is an exclusive FREE compilation hand picked by the Bleep staff to showcase a variety of sounds from this medley of forward-thinking labels. Moving from the some of the hottest electronic beatscapers around right up to Eastern European electric blues funk and folk-prog-rock workouts; this compilation gives an insight into the depths of Bleep’s catalogue.
Update: Bleep Loves Labels has been rescheduled for February. No word on whether it will have a new or different track listing. Check the comments section for more information.
