Music Has The Right To Children arrived in April 1998 as a joint release from Warp and the burgeoning Skam imprint. From low key beginnings, it’s singular combination of loping rhythms, corroded cassette textures, and ambient sound design have gone on to capture the imaginations of several generations of both listeners and producers, their music acknowledged as influential by artists as diverse as Radiohead, Burial, and Solange. Its naïve, nostalgia-inducing synth lines and crunching hip-hop beats manage to create a musical palette that is at once pastoral and urban, recalling the past while avoiding mere replication of it. Music Has The Right To Children offers as rich and mind-boggling a listen now as when it was released.

It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to say this is an essential part of any record collection and the perfect place to start exploring the enigmatic world of Boards Of Canada.
