To coincide with the 500th episode of Canadian radio host and dedicated vinyl collector Trevor Wilkes has compiled a 15 track compilation in respect of the artists who feed his inspiration to broadcast weekly and relentlessly for the last 17 years.
Since 2003 Trevor Wilkes has been committedly streaming weekly from his techno bunker in Canada – connecting with the European techno scene through mixing his collection of gritty four four. Taking lead from the school of techno set out by Cristian Vogel, Neil Landstrumm and their peers Bleep Radio has been a foundational stronghold for supporting and celebrating wonky techno and its diverging parts with a clear focus on off-kilter, ruff around the edges and hard hitting records. His support for this sound has brought him over to the UK frequently appearing on lineups for Jerome Hill’s institutional ‘Don’t’ parties.
“This release isn’t just a milestone, it’s an open love letter to all of you whose music I play and will continue to play and support.” – Trevor Wilkes.
A self-confessed data geek – since starting the show he has trended his tracklists for some years and used this as the formula to curate this compilation release. Accurately representing the most played throughout the lifespan of Bleep Radio – Bleep500 brings together some of the most accomplished figures in his sound.
Sane, Jerome Hill, Johan Platt, Ben Pest, Norman Müller, Luke’s Anger, Tobias Schmidt, Neil Landstrumm, TSR Feat. Kosmonaut J, JoeFarr, Paul Birken, SES, Tobias Schmidt, Joseph Garber and World News all form the line up for this release sharing previously unreleased tracks.
All The Bleeps will be released as a quad pack 12” vinyl distributed by Vinyl Future. It will also have a limited release sold exclusively by Isope. Limited to 50 this edition will also contain a cassette tape with Bleep 500 tracks mixed by Nox on one side and Cedex and a sticker sheet of graphic artist Ed Twist’s artwork in addition to the vinyl package.
