Antipop Consortium, Born Ruffians and Boards Of Canada are among my favorites, but it seems for every one band that I like signed to warp there are at least three that I cannot stand.

My absolute favourite Warp artist is Aphex Twin.

Also love Boards Of Canada & Autechre. To be honest, I get confused between who is signed to Warp, Planet Mu, SKAM, etc.

Top ones for me:

Aphex Twin
Autechre
Clark/Chris Clark
Plaid
Prefuse 73
Squarepusher

Others I enjoy:

Antipop Consortium
Boards of Canada
Two Lone Swordsmen

There are others I enjoy to a lesser extent, or have only had one or two releases on Warp and just aren't as established with the label, etc.

I'd love to see your signature/links too, but the huge and obnoxious ones have caused me to block all signatures.

that pretty much sums up my attitude towards that label (although it's a better ratio than a lot of others hehe).

i'll always have a spot in my collection for aphex twin, squarepusher, and boards of canada. aside from the antipop consortium i find the bulk of their roster sounds a bit too derivative of those 3 key artists, none of the other acts have ever really grabbed me.

Can't say much about Bored Of Canada but I have had, and always will have, a spot for Aphex and Squarepusher.
Haven't really kept up with the label since the late 90's, so I don't know what's new with them, but happy birthday nonetheless.
