Ozy :: Distant Present (nothings66)

Fatima Al Qadiri :: Asiatisch (Hyperdub)

Al Qadiri’s take is indeed spare and spacious but not so very bass rich, a pop music westernized with melodramatically sweeping and bleating synths and decorated with a few tastefully selected virtual neo-Oriental knick-knacks and knock-offs. Kuwaiti Fatima Al Qadiri is a young but well-traveled, multidisciplinary artist based in New York who made a lasting […]

Burial :: Rival Dealer (Hyperdub)

Burial’s output is becoming harder and harder to predict or track, and to so boldly eschew the expected dark, angst-ridden, minor key moodiness in favor of messages of positivity, support and compassion makes Rival Dealer one of his most defining releases to date. Over the last few years it has become difficult not to associate […]

Kode9 :: Rinse: 22 (Rinse)

British beat and bass avantgarde and head of touchstone Hyperdub label, is notably partial to its darker, miry side, and despite opening with an exemplary track by poster-boy Burial, feeds out increasingly rapid-paced stuff on this mix CD, thirty-seven tracks over a breakneck sixty-five minutes, wrapping up with a showcase of recent signing DJ Rashad, […]

Ikonika :: Aerotropolis (Hyperdub)

Whilst she’s undoubtedly progressed you can still hear that in her production—a slight sense of raw talent let loose on the machines—not unlike the early Detroit techno brigade. In an interview with UK based site The Quietus, Sara Abdel-Hamid (Ikonika) explains that on handing her finished album to Hyperdub boss Kode 9 he requested she get […]

Laurel Halo :: Quarantine (Hyperdub)

Halo trowels through a soft soil of idea-rich, melodic self-accompaniment, an impressive display of compositional dexterity, complementing bass and electric piano with a hefty role call of samplers and synthesizers, vintage, digital and vegetable. [Release page] Evincing both nervous vulnerability and a certain arrogance, you’ve never heard anyone quite like Laurel Halo. Choosing to “sound […]

Burial :: Kindred EP (Hyperdub)

Everything flows exactly as it should and, in an age dominated by throwaway digital singles, it’s pleasing to find out that there are still artists out there who really do think about the collective whole as a world unto itself. There’s always the worry that self-indulgence has taken over completely when you start seeing 12-minute […]

Burial :: Street Halo EP (Hyperdub)

This is music that is far more personal and intimate; mood music for late night drives or headphone excursions in the rain. Burial’s sounds are muffled and distressed giving all the tones character and warmth. [Purchase] While Burial is a name that is often dropped when discussing Dubstep, his tracks seem out of place in […]

RUBRENE :: Glowing Overtones igloomag mix

Glowing Overtones is a snapshot of the current experimental-dubstep scene mixed as a continuous sheet of audible electricity. Chris Bolszo (aka DJ Rubrene) splices forty-three minutes of rhythm-infested bass lines, glitched-out melodies, ricocheting dub, and a plethora of digital manipulation tearing through low-riding overtones. Taking disjointed percussion to the limit and tying them together with […]

Ikonika :: Contact, Love, Want, Have (Hyperdub)

Prophets are often misunderstood in their time because their message is difficult or impossible to interpret. Their listeners lack the full story, all the information needed to contextualize the message and understand its implications. It’s only after the fact that the prophecy starts to make sense. I don’t want to be delusional here, but it […]
