Bleep Music

An online platform store that specializes in music from independent artists and labels. Bleep Music provides a platform for these artists to showcase their work and reach a wider audience.

Who Are Bleep Music

Launched by Warp Records in January 2004, Bleep provides customers with the option to purchase digital and physical tracks and albums. Physical purchases include vinyl records, compact cassettes, and CDs.

Since its inception, Bleep has expanded its musical selection to include releases from independent labels such as Rough Trade, XL Recordings, 4AD, One Little Independent Records, Domino, Ninja Tune and many more.

For over a decade, Bleep Music has provided more than just retail; they have also curated content such as their monthly NTS shows, podcasts and mix series, weekly roundups of new music featuring the Album Of The Week, and performances at festivals.

The website rapidly increased its selection of releases from other labels, becoming popular enough to be nominated for a Webby Award in the music category in May 2004, alongside iTunes, Beatport and more.

In 2006, Bleep achieved a milestone of over one million downloads and was recognized with the UK Digital Music Award for “Best Music Store” in October of that year. Bleep offers a variety of music formats such as MP3, FLAC, and WAV files that are all DRM-free. Additionally, they also offer vinyl and cassette records for purchase.

In 2008, Bleep and Warpmart joined forces, thus allowing Bleep to offer not only digital downloads but also physical releases through its mail-order retail service.

Before buying, one can preview entire tracks and albums from a vast selection of rare titles obtained from many small labels around the globe.
