Fatima & Paul Cut, The Black Madonna b2b Smart Bar's Garrett David, Erick Morillo, Gideön, Sweely, Midland and more.
MUTEK San Francisco has locked in their first wave of artists for this year, including Veronica Vasicka, Amnesia Scanner, GAIKA, and a Japanese video game music-inspired set from Kode9.
San Fran's sophomore edition of MUTEK, as an international festival of music and technology, will also feature a number of Bay Area locals, such as Bleie, Lara Sarkissian, and Mozhgan B2B Josh Cheon.
The festival runs 2 -5 May across various venues in the Bay Area, and DJ Mag will be the first to let you know about ticket sales going live.
Hyperdub has announced its next release of 2019, a debut album from producer Mana.
The album, titled 'Seven Steps Behind', comes around six months on from the producer's first EP with the label. Hyperdub's press release describes the record as "an electronic album that doesn't always sound electronic," adding that large parts of the record have been created to mimic the sound of "prepared pianos, harpsichords, cellos and flutes."
Steve Goodman, otherwise known as Hyperdub label boss Kode9, has been tapped up to provide sound design for a new exhibition at the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall.
The museum has commissioned Cuban performance and installation artist Tania Bruguera to take over its main hall for an exhibition which addresses the current migrant crisis. As part of the project, she enlisted Goodman to install a 40,000-watt soundsystem in the space which will play discomfiting low frequencies.
Burial and Kode9 have shared a new mix in support of their forthcoming FabricLive compilation.
Premiered on Mary Anne Hobbs' BBC 6 Music show on 19th September, it features tracks by the likes of Speedy J, SOPHIE, Jlin, DJ Hank, Fulltono and more. Stream the mix here.
Kode9 & Burial have mixed the final FabricLive compilation, marking the end of an era of albums that started 17 years ago.
No strangers to collaborating, the two icons, respectively head of the rightly-lauded Hyperdub label and its first signee— Britain's elusive master of spooky post-garage— were confirmed for the last instalment today, which will arrive on 28th September.
Burial shared jazz-tinged slow-burner ‘Rodent’ this Thursday 14th September via Hyperdub. It’s the enigmatic producer’s third release of 2017, following spring’s ‘Subtemple’ EP and a remix of Goldie’s ‘Inner Circle’.
The single is accompanied by a grating, experimental remix courtesy of Hyperdub-boss Kode9.
'Rodent' arrives almost a year after Burial chose Hyperdub to drop 2016’s ‘Young Death’.
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.
Stream the show in full below.
Zomby has announced that he will release a full-length album via Kode9’s Hyperdub label, entitled ‘Ultra’, which will be released on 2nd September.
The album features collaborations with Burial, Darkstar, Rezzett, Hong Kong Express and Banshee, and is the first Zomby material since his ‘Let’s Jam’ EPs on XL Recordings last year. ‘Ultra’ will be preceded by the release of ‘Sweetz’, the track he made for the LP with Burial, which is due out on 10” vinyl on 29th July.
