Kode 9’s seminal Hyperdub label turns 10 this year and they plan on celebrating.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been a whole 10 years since ‘Sign Of The Dub’, but it’s safe to say that Hyperdub has grown to become one of Britain’s best independent label’s, pumping out ubiquitous underground sounds, facilitating the birth of Burial and constantly raising the bar in terms of creativity and innovation.
Instead of putting out just one celebratory compilation, they’ve decided to pump out a whopper 4 collections over the course of the year. The first of which is titled ‘Hyperdub 10.1′ is comprised of two disks and features fresh material from Kode9, Rashad, Mala, Kuedo, Kyle Hall, Quarta 330 and more. The second selection will go down the retrospective route featuring some of the labels biggest club smashers.
This comes on top of recent news that the Hyperdub crew will be hitting the road, touring Europe this year starting in Glasgow this April. The biggest of the shows will be a 3 room Fabric takeover on May 23rd, featuring Laurel Halo, Fatima Al Qadiri, Champion, Rashad & Spinn, Terror Danjah and loads more.
Hyperdub 10.1 will be released on May 19th.
