Hyperdub’s Christmas comes early with the first news of the labels 2012 album projects.

Burial – ‘Kindred’ EP Tracklist:
B2. Ashtray Wasp
Meanwhile, the London label will release the first of it’s album projects next year with Scratcha DVA‘s ‘Pretty Ugly’, scheduled for a release March, which is bound to be a skewed, highly original take on everything from UK funky to r’n’b and toughly colourful dancefloor productions. The album is due on March 19, and you can watch the video for latest single ‘Madness’ featuring Vikter Duplaix below.
The label have also noted that Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland, who make up the mysterious ‘collective’ that goes by the name of Hype Williams, will release their debut Hyperdub EP ‘Black Is Beautiful’ on April 16.
You can listen to tracks from both Scratcha and fellow Hyperdub artist Cooly G‘s albums, plus an edit of Burial’s ‘Ashtray Wasp’, on the recent Hyperdub show on Rinse FM here. All in all, another busy year continually developing bass label.
