New Warp-Bleep MP3 (And Stream)

OK, so the new stream from Warp Records isn’t exactly user-friendly, and the MP3 isn’t free, but the arrival of Plaid‘s Dialp (a one-hour mix of “back catalogue, unreleased live tracks and edits”) is a good opportunity to remind Downstream readers of the label’s new online MP3 store, Bleep (at bleep.com). Dialp is the first newly added release to the store since it debuted in mid-January, coincident with the preview of new Squarepusher material. Bleep doesn’t copy-protect its downloads, so once you purchase an MP3, it’s all yours. The tradeoff is that the lo-fi stream, for online preview purposes, comes in sequential 30-second snippets. So, it’s a sweet stream of loungey ambience that grows into a dark funk, but you have to work for it. Or purchase the MP3.
