5 years of Hyperdub
The fabulous Hyperdub label turns 5 and unveils their 2xCD compilation thats full of exclusives and recent 12″ hits. Joker & Ginz touch on a West Coast sounding early 90’s monster that could be played in Pop clubs around the world, its like if you put Dam Funk in a NES game and drugged him up and only let him play low notes. Flying Lotus comes in running with his signature deep step that sways like a Kompakt shuffle track but heavier than a boot covered in thick mud. Samiyam joins the crew with more of a head nodding cut including long high pitch synth chords and dramatic melodies. 2000F & J Kamata brings us back to the late 80s roller skating rink jams in Oakland, CA with Osborne like vocoders and smash hit hooks and breaks. Quarta 330 takes Kode9 track and gives it a NES last level feel, plenty of deep space soldiers ready for battle once this track ends *presses A+B buttons together as fast as possible*.
