Kode9 has broadcast his final Rinse FM show, ending a 13-year run on the London station.
The Hyperdub boss began as a host back in 2003, when Rinse was still a pirate station.
Label-affliate Cooly G was the last guest on Kode9's show, which broadcast on 9th October. The Hyperdub boss also paid tribute to the late great footwork pioneer, DJ Rashad, on what would have been his birthday.

DJ Rashad, one of the pioneers of footwork, died at the weekend in his home city of Chicago. He was 34.
Kode9’s seminal Hyperdub label celebrates 10 years of eclectic urban electronica this year, with no less than four compilation albums and a world tour.
Released on May 19th, the first compilation in the series, ‘Hyperdub 10.1’, will be split into two discs, representing the label's sound past and present.
Teklife have announced the release of a posthumous album from DJ Rashad.
‘Afterlife’ will pay tribute to the footwork crew’s co-founder, who passed away in 2014. The album will feature collaborations with Teklife stalwarts DJ Spinn, Traxman, DJ Manny and more recent recruits like DJ Taso, DJ Earl and DJ Paypal.
The release will be the first under Teklife’s own label. The Chicago crew have put out a number of records through Hyperdub in the past, including Rashad’s ‘Double Cup’.
‘Afterlife’ is due out 8th April, a percentage of the proceeds will go to Rashad’s family.
