Hyperdub vs. 3024 (Kode9 vs. Martyn Mix)

September 15, 2010

Keeping with the trend of some favorite labels of mine collaborating, check out the Hyperdub vs 3024 Exclusive Mix for Japan. I am slow in posting this, but Martyn’s contributions have been really growing on me. I have listened to the three song mix(Martyn – Is This Insanity (feat Spaceape – Ben Klock mix) TO Detachments – Circles (Martyn Round & Round mix) TO Deadboy – U’ve Been Hurting) on repeat and no matter where I am, no matter what I am working on – it gets me dancing! Kode9 is good as per usual, but if you listened to his DJ Kicks this year you won’t really be surprised. Check it out if you can.

DJ Kicks: Kode9

April 22, 2010

another Burial spoof?  maybe

I found this article as I was cruising around the red bull music academy website:

Details have been announced for Kode9‘s edition of DJ-Kicks, due for release this June.

The Hyperdub boss took a no-nonsense approach to assembling the mix, compiling what he describes as “just a snapshot of my DJ sets from the first half of 2010.” The tracklist is heavy on UK funky, broken beat, grime and R&B, but surprisingly light on on the genre Kode9 helped vault into widespread popularity: dubstep.

“[The mix is] definitely not an exploration of my musical heritage, but it’s not all new stuff. It probably signifies something about my relationship to dubstep that the mix only has a few dubstep tunes in it… Unfortunately, I fear some listeners, because of my background, will think that all the tracks are just mutations of dubstep.”

In addition to tracks by Aardvarck, Digital Mystikz, Zomby and Cooly G, the mix will feature an exclusive track by Kode9, entitled “You Don’t Wash.” The compilation will be the third installment of DJ-Kicks this year, following contributions by The Juan Maclean and James Holden.
