Inventive DJing, mind-altering live sets, and absurd explorations in artificial intelligence make for an unparalleled late-summer day out at Wysing Polyphonic 2019. Marking its tenth annual festival, Wysing Arts Centre, situated a few miles west of Cambridge, proves itself once again to be a vital hub for forward-thinking art and sounds.
Loraine James has shared the video for ‘London Ting / Dark As Fuck’, taken from her forthcoming album, 'For You And I'.
The video, which accompanies James' glitched, chaotic sonics on 'London Ting / Dark As Fuck', features South-East London MC Le3 Black, who contributes quick-witted, scathing bars about the city's hectic landscape.
The track itself captures the pressures of London life, with dizzying and non-sensical visuals set against the backdrop of the estate where James grew up.
Teklife co-founder DJ Spinn will release 'Da Life' on the 18th October via London underground unit, Hyperdub.
Featuring Teklife affiliate DJ Manny on track 'Sky Way', and vocal contributions from DJ Spinn himself on 'Knock A Patch Out' and 'U Ain't Really Bout Dat Life', the DJ and producer weaves 160 magic with four tracks of high-energy, club-ready footwork.
Proc Fiskal will return to Hyperdub in September with his first release of 2019.
The 'Shleekit Doss' EP, Proc shares, is “a kind of representation of the time I was running the club night of the same name in Edinburgh."
“These tunes represent the night’s ethos of genre-defiance and high-energy futuristic sets," the Scottish producer says, "ecstatic and transcendent while still being fun and stupid. I was getting my friends to play and I made all the posters on my phone - like this EP’s artwork."
London-based producer and artist Loraine James will make her debut on Hyperdub in September with her new album, ‘For You And I’.
KG and Scratchclart (fka Scratcha DVA) have come together for a four-track EP on London label Hyperdub.
'Touch', landing this Friday (12th), is a fusion of UK funky and the increasingly popular, percussive sound of South African gqom.
The 'Touch' EP is Hyperdub mainstay Scratchclart's fourth release this year and will be KG's debut on the imprint following her 2018 'Goon Club Allstars' EP, joining the likes of Burial, DJ Lag and Ikonika.
Hyperdub is launching a new sub-label called Flatlines.
The label will focus on spoken word pieces, with its inaugural release coming courtesy of philosopher and sound artist Justin Barton and late theorist and writer Mark Fisher. An audio essay called 'On Vanishing Land', the release, a press release says, "evokes a walk along the Suffolk coastline in 2006, from Felixstowe container port ('a nerve ganglion of capitalism') to the Anglo-Saxon burial ground at Sutton Hoo".
Burial has released new EP, 'Claustro / State Forest', via Hyperdub.
The EP is Burial's first solo material in 2019 following a remix of Luke Slater's 'Love'.
'Claustro' was debuted on Maryanne Hobb's BBC Radio 6 show and the full EP is available to stream now. While 'Claustro' saw the producer leaning more towards the garage and bassline ends of the spectrum, 'State Forest' is Burial back at his ominous, ambient best.

A GoFundMe page has been launched by Hyperdub to help label signing Cooly G, after a fire at a self-storage unit in London late last year destroyed most of her and her family's possessions.
The message accompanying the crowdfunding campaign explains that the producer and DJ had put much of her belonging into the storage unit while preparing to move houses.
