Leicester collective Grade 10 are a familiar face here on Hyponik. Having featured together on our Hyp Mix series and individually on track premieres, the crew including Forever, Loosewomen, 8Ball, Prayer, Unslaved, Classic Coke and the Kollaps duo have pooled together to create an eight-track piece of work entitled TEXTURES.
The concept behind the compilation involved the producers taking inspiration from eight different images taken by photographer Ollie Kirk. The images themselves are natural yet striking.
Having been slightly manipulated, the imagery goes hand in hand with the sound of the tracks, venturing from ‘other-worldly soundscapes and brooding piano to hi-tempo footwork and spacey techno’ whilst each artists ads their own flare and style.
Released on March 30th, 2018, you can pre-order the cassette and print bundle via Bandcamp here.
