Heavee announces new album, 'Unleash', on Hyperdub

Footwork producer Heavee is releasing a new album through Hyperdub.

Spanning 14 tracks, 'Unleash' is the Chicago artist's full-length debut for Hyperdub and arrives off the back of 2022's 'Audio Assault' EP for the label. It's the first release of the imprint's 20th anniversary year.

With a firm focus on the dancefloor, the tracks on 'Unleash' fold elements of R&B, jazz, rap and grime into footwork's 160 BPM rhythmic framework. Its announcement is backed by an online adventure game, which you can play for yourself here.

Listen to the album's lead track, 'Sumthin' Different', below ahead of the full release on 15th March.
