LOOPER have announced details of a 5 CD box set, collating tracks from their entire catalogue, including the brand new album, Offgrid:Offline.

In an inventive reinterpretation of ‘The Boxset’, Looper have curated the database of their entire body of work as five separate CDs, themed by type and entitled lexiphonics, kinokraft, voxtrot, transmitte and melos.

Inspired by mixtapes – and their modern day equivalent, the playlist – These Things puts the songs in new contexts, allowing new relationships between works previously kept apart. Looper explain, "For us this box is a repurposed, recycled and renewed work – an attempt to make something new out of something old".

The concept of sampling – present both in the construction of the early music and the creation of the playlists – assumes visual form in the cut-and-paste collage artwork by Karn David. Photographs from the Looper archives illustrate her unique liner notes: quotes and ‘samples’ from music reviews and articles from the time of the original releases, collaged together to tell the story of Looper.
