Warp 10 is a series of compilation albums issued by Warp Records in 1999 to celebrate the label's tenth anniversary. The collection spans three double CD/quadruple vinyl sets, which can be purchased individually. Each volume in the set highlights different phases of electronic music, including influential tracks not originally released by Warp (licensed specifically for this collection), but which helped to shape the artists and musicians who eventually appeared on the label, as well as tracks that influenced the overall sound of the label itself.
Warp 10+1: Influences (WARP LP/CD 67) contains twenty-two early acid house and techno tracks. Many of these songs are today considered to be the classics of these genres (when they were in their infancy). A number of the tracks had never been available on compact disc before this collection, and seven of the twenty-two were mastered directly from 12 inch vinyl (from such record labels as Cutting, Trax, Fourth Floor, KMS, Metroplex, 10, Cause N' Effect, Transmat, Plezure, and Bassic). Spanning the years 1986 through 1990, the songs represented here were still very much an underground sensation in the United States, however a handful of these songs charted well on the UK singles chart and helped to usher in the acid house craze that swept across Europe in the late 1980s.
Warp 10+2: Classics 89–92 (WARP LP/CD 68) features eighteen full-length "classic" versions and remixes taken directly from the vaults of Warp Records. Tracks appearing here were produced between the years of 1989 and 1992. As with Warp 10+1, many of these tracks appeared previously only on 12 inch vinyl or now out-of-print compilations and EPs.
Warp 10+3: Remixes (WARP LP/CD 69) contains twenty-six remixes (of which twenty-five are exclusive to this collection) of tracks taken from Warp Records' back catalog. Although all of the original recordings were released by Warp, the remixers are not necessarily Warp Records artists. The original songs span from the years 1990 through 1998.
The album art is the Roger Stevens Building, a lecture hall for the University of Leeds built in the 1970s, and noted for its bizarre brutalist architecture. The quadruple vinyl editions of Influences and Classics 89–92 come in gatefold sleeves, while that of Remixes is packaged as four separate LPs in sleeves inside a hard box.
In a 2013 article for Fact Magazine, Simon Reynolds noted that Warp 10+2: Classics 89–92 remains one of the only compilations that covers the "bleep techno" of the early 1990s: "[D]espite its time-defying excellence, bleep is poorly served in terms of compilations: basically, there's Warp's Classics double CD, plus out-of-print comps from the original era."
