Arcola is an offshoot of the record label Warp Records. It was set up in late 2003, and takes its name from the Arcola Theatre, Arcola Street in Dalston, London where Warp held the launch party for the label.
All Arcola releases are 12-inch singles released in a generic sleeve designed by The Designers Republic. Although some artists such as Brothomstates and Milanese are shared by both the Warp and Arcola label, Arcola releases are always more dancefloor-oriented.
