Hyperdub's Kode9 has put out a new selection of previously unreleased tracks via Bandcamp.
Titled 'Unreleased for a Reason: Lost Dubs Vol.1 [2000-200?]', the new record collects eight previously-unheard tunes by the DJ/producer and is available to download as a digital album for £9.
A memorial party for the late footwork pioneer, DJ Rashad, who passed away in 2014 aged 34, will take place later this year.
The party will take place at the Jazz Cafe on the 1st May, with fellow Chicago footwork pioneer and Teklife co-founder, DJ Spinn, heading to London for the event.
Hyperdub label boss Kode9 will also perform at the event, alongside London-based DJ and purveyor of footwork and jungle, Sherelle.
Hyperdub has teamed up with TV network Adult Swim for a new 15th anniversary compilation titled 'HyperSwim'.
19 artists that currently make up part of Hyperdub's label roster feature on the release, including Burial, Dean Blunt, Fatima Al Qadiri, Laurel Halo, Lee Gamble, Cooly G, DJ Haram, and label head Kode9.
HyperSwim will initially be available for streaming in full via Adult Swim only this Friday, November 22nd, with a wider release set to follow across all digital platforms a day later on Saturday, November 23rd.
There are over 30 churches in Braga, a small historic city in northwest Portugal. Walking through its cobbled streets, their ringing bells are often heard from all angles, as if they’re talking, or singing, to one another. It makes for an appropriate backdrop for Semibreve, a festival that, in its ninth year, continues to set itself apart with adventurous programming, and a focus on rich, enveloping sounds.
Hyperdub will celebrate their 15th birthday with a party at London's Village Underground later this month.
Featuring a number of core members from the label's roster, the party will see Kode9 playing b2b with a special guest who will remain unannounced until the party. The label has hinted that the guest is a "South London legend" and old friend of the label, and added that the b2b will mark the first time the two have played together in the UK.
Avalon Emerson, Jayda G and Kode9 in collaboration with Japanese animator Kōji Morimoto are among the names locked for Simple Things festival 2019.
The multi-venue Bristol session is widely regarded as one of the UK's most cutting edge city festivals, with this year's line-up only set to cement that status.
Semibreve has finalised the line-up for this year's installment of the festival.
Joining previously announced artists Avalon Emerson, Planet Mu affiliate Rian Treanor and Nik Void, Hypderdub label founder Kode9 will make his Semibreve debut at this year’s festival, alongside grammy-award winning composer and electronic pioneer Suzanne Cianni.
