Double Figure is an album by Plaid released in 2001 on Warp Records. Warp Records is a pioneering independent British record label, founded in Sheffield in 1989, notable for discovering some of the more enduring artists in electronic music.  Founded by Steve Beckett and the late Rob Mitchell from their experiences working at the FON record shop, alongside producer Robert Gordon, the label soon became home to artists who would be influential in electronic music.

This CD belonged to my roommate Stephanie Dedes when we lived together in Bedford-Stuyvesant. She inherited some of my bags and I inherited this CD. It moved with me from Brooklyn to Queens, from storage to Manhattan and back to Brooklyn again. It is currently with me in Brooklyn.
