Warp Founder Interview MP3

Up at the Red Bull Music Academy, a conversation with Steve Beckett, Warp Records founder, on the rise of rave culture, the influence of hip-hop on electronic music, how British geography shapes culture, early adventures in online distribution, working with Designers Republic, and more subgenres than you can shake a glow stick at (MP3). Additional details at redbullmusicacademy.com.

There’s a funny bit at the end when it appears that Mark Pritchard (aka Reload) asks a question of Beckett, and Beckett says that when he’s done answering he has a question in return for Pritchard, who is apparently four years into a contract to deliver an album to Warp. For context, here’s a 2002 Red Bull interview with Pritchard, in which he mentions his association with Warp: redbullmusicacademy.com.
