Episode #91 // July 21, 2021

Every Wednesday night, 8-9 p.m., Soundfounder plays electronic and beat music from Austin and around the world, focusing on new releases and old classics. This week’s show features a deep dive into the weird, wonderful world of Warp Records. Founded in 1989, the UK label helped launch the first wave of boundary-pushing electronic music in the ’90s, releasing records by Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, and Boards Of Canada. Since then, Warp has helped connect the dots between electronic, jazz, indie, and folk music, becoming a genre-defying home to Flying Lotus, Brian Eno, Grizzly Bear, Broadcast, and more.
