Kode9

UK / Hyperdub

Kode9 runs the record label Hyperdub, renowned for artists such as Burial, the late DJ Rashad and many more.

He has released 2 albums with The Spaceape and over 10 singles on his own label, as well as releasing, remixing and doing DJ mix compilations for labels such as K7, Rinse, On U Sound, Warp, Domino, Ghostly, Tempa and Rephlex. Last summer Kode9 released his last EP, ‘Killing Season’, with The Spaceape who died in October 2014. His new album ‘Nothing’ throws horror soundtracks, sampled library and j-pop records into a no mans land between grime, early dubstep and Chicago footwork. Mostly instrumental, it zigzags between hypnotic, downcast loops, growling drones, jagged cut-ups of androids gone haywire, threaded through twitchy, transatlantic rhythms and sub-bass inaudible through your laptop speakers.
