Warp Records Reject DRM, Go Bleep


TRIBE Promoter
DJ Phase writes "Warp Records, an independent label for electronic music (featuring artists such as Aphex Twin, Autechre, and Boards of Canada), has made their entire back catalog available thru Bleep, a new digital download service. Individual tracks are $1.35 for those of us in the USA, with EPs and full albums in the $4 to $10 price range. You can download Aphex Twin's rare, groundbreaking Hangable Auto Bulb EP for $4.29. To quote from the FAQ: 'We are at present the only store to offer very high quality MP3 files,' and 'Bleep music has no DRM or copy protection built in. We believe that most people like to be treated as customers and not potential criminals'."


What a great site!!! I would definitely buy some stuff there, depending on the quality. $10 for BoC "Music Has The Right.."? Good deal for a full album.
MP3s? who cares... where can the .wavs be bought?

Damnit I still want Joey Beltram's Caliber EP without having to spend USD$70...

this is a step in the right direction. There are some good points made on /. about this (just remember to set the threshold to +5 to avoid randomness). I'd buy from a site like this. Nice one Warp
