Transgressive Records is set to give away a free rare or unreleased track every day throughout September to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Foals, The Antlers, The Shins and Africa Express are among the artists featured.

From today (September 1) through to September 30, one track will be available to download from Transgressive per day. The selection will provide a "cross-section of the Transgressive roster past and present".

Each track will be kept secret until 10am on the morning of its release. Today's inaugural download is 'Possum' by Flume. Other artists already confirmed for inclusion are Alvvays, At The Drive-In and Neon Indian.

Trangressive will also be hosting a birthday show at London's Barbican Centre on September 30, with sets from Mystery Jets, Johnny Flynn & the Sussex Wit, Dry The River and Marika Hackman. Radio One's Huw Stephens will be the compere for the evening.

Speaking about the gig, Transgressive co-founder Toby L said: "The Barbican is one of the world’s finest venues, so it's both an honour and a privilege for us to be presenting an evening of our roster as part of our 10th birthday celebrations. This will be a real centerpiece night in a full year of events for us – and there are more names to come. We cannot wait."

Alongside the aforementioned artists, Trangressive Records has also put out releases from the likes of Graham Coxon, Two Door Cinema Club, Regina Spektor and Iron & Wine during its decade-long career. Its current roster also includes Pulled Apart By Horses and newcomers Gengahr, FAMY and Thumpers.
