Hyperdub has launched a special edition Sega Megadrive with a compilation of fresh tracks stored on a game cartridge.
Produced in collaboration with game system cloners Analogue, a company that has previously worked with similarly revered imprint Ghostly International, just 1,000 units of the limited edition Megadrive remix, dubbed the Konsolation, are available, only 150 of which will be sold in Europe.
As for the music, heavyweights from the Hyperdub stable are out in force. Burial, Scratcha DVA, Ikonika, Cooly G and bossman Kode 9 are among the artists to contribute tunes. The collector's item can only be purchased via the label or hardware company direct, retailing at $249.99.
This is the second partnership Hyperdub has struck to mark its 15th birthday this year, the first involving TV network Adult Swim. Take a listen to samples from the cartridge release below, then check out our feature showcasing the UK bass institution's next generation of talent.
