About this item
Third release in Warp's new reissue series and it's another Peel Session from another stalwart of UK electronica - Boards Of Canada.
Taken from 1998 it features landmark tracks, "Aquarius (Version 3), "Happy Cycling", "Olson (Version 3)" and "XYZ".
Demonstrating the act's uncanny knack at crafting dreamy, cinematic-cum-fairylike soundscapes, glued together by dusty breakbeats and DIY electronix, tracks like "Aquarius" and "Happy Cycling" are treasured artifacts amongst long-term fans and newbies alike.
Two experimental tracks decorate side B, smothered in electrostatic and musicality combined, the two elements that would make this act such a formidable force during their heyday and such a well respected addition to British electronic music.
Matt says: A vital piece of the Boards jigsaw; this late 90s John Peel session is a high watermark of creativity and subtlety from this bastion of UK electronica.
