April 30 will see Hyperdub drop Ill Blu’s latest work, together with a remix from Chicago’s juke veteran, Traxman.
HDB062 is everything you would expect from London’s UK funky pair, Ill Blu, and more.
In a similar vein to their 2010 Hyperdub release, ‘Bellion/Dragon Pop,’ this is straight up club material; littered with infectious, high-pitched synth shots and, as the name suggests, a funky clapping rhythm. On the flipside, Traxman shifts the tempo to 160bpm, keeping all the energy of the original but expertly replacing the drums with a footwork beat. A release that demonstrates exactly the forward-thinking and diverse ethos of its label.
