WARP 20 - The Vote
"We’d like your help to pick the tracks for the official Warp20 retrospective album, the definitive ‘Best of’ from the last 20 years.

Vote for your favourite Warp tracks on The top 10 (by different artists) will be combined with those chosen by Warp co-founder Steve Beckett to make a 20 track album. Leave personal memories and messages about your choices and the best will be printed in the album’s artwork.

Each user has 50 votes in total, but you cannot vote for the same track twice. Voting will be closed on Friday 8th May.

This historic album will be fully released on CD and digitally worldwide in Autumn 2009. Thank you for listening. We Are Reasonable People. Read more about Warp20."
