The art of… Rephlex

No label captures the demented spirit of rave quite like Rephlex Records.

Sinces its formation in 1991, Richard D. James and Grant Wilson-Claridge’s label has provided a home to some quite astonishingly good, and ground-breaking, releases. It’s also peddled its fair share of utter nonsense, but that’s a price we’ve been willing to pay for its endearingly goofy humour and consistent lack of pretentiousness – Rephlex is as inclusive, not to mention unhinged, as the acid parties that inspired it.
