Hyperdub Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records

When a label is headed up by Kode9, it’s safe to say that it will only be signing acts of the highest quality. Hyperdub, the imprint that grew out of the webzine Kode9 set up at the beginning of the new millennium, has proven that point a hundred t...read more »

Burial
Burial

When the debut Burial album popped onto radars over the world, divided opinion soon gave way to cult status. An unlikely pairing of screwed up garage beats, moody bass and morose ambience heralded an era of genuinely emotive but strange dance music, cementing the album as a contemporary electronic classic. 

Loraine James
Nothing EP

Loraine James is a producer from North London. Her style is a soulful one that is grounded in IDM, techno and electronica - think Tirzah, Murlo and Jessy Lanza. The Hyperdub-released 'Nothing' EP features four tracks and sees James collaborating with Lila Tirando, Tardast and Jonnine. It follows on from James' 2019 album 'For You and I' which was widely praised by critics.

Burial
Claustro / State Forest

(sings) All we are saying is 'Give Us an Album'. Burial's last full length LP the magnificent Untrue came out in 2007. That's 12 years ago. Since then all we get are these 12"s of which Claustro/State Forest is the latest. I know we're supposed to get excited but grrrr. Anyway it's something at least. I think I liked his last thing. Did I? I can't remember. Maybe.

Jessy Lanza
All The Time

Jesse Lanza is a Canadian, singer, songwriter who has gained traction with her previous albums Pull My Hair Back and Oh No. On All The Time, she collaborates with writing partner Jeremy Greenspan on perhaps her strongest set yet. The production is both modern and retro-leaning but allows Lanza space to create a more lyrically ambitious work inspired by heartbreak and personal change.  

Burial
Rodent

Burial remoulds 90's Garage/House into his own vision on 'Rodent', applying his signature production tricks to a classic bouncing and shuffling template of skeletal drums and big subs. He loops vocals samples in 'Untrue' style, adding heavenly synth to create that magical, melancholy sound he just totally owns. There's even a touch of Vangelis flavoured saxophone for some additional romance. Hyperdub bossman Kode9 deconstructs and reconstructs the core elements into a frantic footwork cut, heavily influenced by Chicago but with his own twist, in a similar mode to his 'Nothing' album.

Burial
Tunes 2011 - 2019

Most of Burial’s output in the years since his game-changing LP altogether in one place. What’s not to like? There’s nothing new on ‘Tunes 2011-2019’, with the man who is maybe-possibly known to his mates as William Emmanuel Bevan selecting his favourite tunes from his excellent EP run of the past eight years. It’s interesting charting the progression of Burial’s music over the time-period, with his greyscale garage sound expanded to incorporate drone and dark ambient influences but still staying true to the project’s root style. ‘Tunes 2011-2019’ represents the first time some of these tunes have been released on CD.

Burial
Street Halo

Street Halo was the first of the 12"s which followed on from Burial's magnificent second album Untrue back when we thought he was just killing time readying up a third full length masterpiece. That never came but street Halo proved that he was still delivering the goods. Both the title track and closer Stolen Dog are near perfect examples of his dark and brooding take on dubstep.    

Laurel Halo
Quarantine

Quarantine was the debut album from Midwestern electronic musician Laurel Halo. Its blend of ambient, pop and techno topped off by her unadorned vocals led it to be a critics favourite and it won The Wire Album of the Year in 2012. Her work on the album was lush, beautiful but also spooky and with and otherworldly feel. A true classic of its genre.   

Nazar
Guerrilla

Inspired by the ugly realities and hardships of war in Angola, Nazar confronts his family's issues around extreme violence and injustice with 'Guerrilla'. He does so by channelling his emotions through his typically glitchy and sample-heavy electronic sounds. An immersive digitalisation of a man and a nation's struggle.

Burial
Kindred EP

I'm personally quite excited to see that Burial has issued all his recent 12" tracks onto a compilation CD. I can at least pretend it's the new album that has been missing since the brilliant Untrue. There's nothing like hearing the tracks spreadeagled on vinyl though and so you can still get Kindred's three tracks on super wax. It's full on haunted ambience and warped trance and sees the producer stretching his talents into exciting new areas.    

Doon Kanda
Labyrinth

Surreal Gothic artist Jesse Kanda is, until now, known for his work as an artist with Bjork, FKA Twigs and Arca. Under the name Doon Kanda, he has started to make music. Labyrinth is his latest album on Hyperdub. His music sounds like his art looks, so with this, you can really judge an album by its cover.

Burial
Subtemple / Beachfires

Everyone's favourite cracklemonger Burial is back to deliver two new beat opuses on 10" wax for extra crackle. Featuring tracks such as 'Bus Dodger', 'Piss Lift', 'NHS Rizla' and 'Payspliff' (but none of those), it will be sure to console you into the wee hours with nothing but closed curtains and a glowing laptop screen for company. Still waiting for that world tour, Will.

Loraine James
For You And I

Growing up in Enfield, Loraine James would hear sounds as disparate as heavy metal, grime, jazz, electronica and steel drum bands swirling around in her environment. She is also very happily in a same sex relationship. Her album, For You and I takes in all of her musical influences and expresses how she feels about the woman she loves. She’s happy and she wants to share her happiness via a loose, genre-melding jam. 

DJ Spinn
Da Life EP

Teklife member DJ Spinn returns to the Hyperdub label with a brand new five-track 12” vinyl EP. The collection features four originals - the lead track ‘Knock A Patch Out’ is repeated in a clean format on side one - that range from fast-paced footwork freakouts, with which Spinn is normally associated, to the funky slow jam ‘Make Her Hot’. 

Burial
Young Death / Nightmarket

In what's now becoming a sub-festive winter tradition, Burial delivers his first 12" of material since the wonderful, graceful and empathetic set of dubstep ambient tunes that came on Rival Dealer. He recently caused chaos with Zomby on "Sweetz", but this slab is Will Bevan through and through -- "Young Death" is a gorgeous abstraction and "Nightmarket" compliments it beautifully.

Proc Fiskal
Shleekit Doss EP

Following his well-received 2018 debut album Insula, one of Hyperdub’s newest stars Proc Fiskal drops a new six-track EP Shleekit Doss, named after the club night he used to run in Edinburgh. The tracks are rhythmically dense enough to make sense in a dancefloor context, but are sufficiently complex and shifting to satisfy genre purists. 

Okzharp & Manthe Ribane
Closer Apart

After leaving LV, Okzharp has thrived alongside fellow South African artist Manthe Ribane. Following some hype-generating EPs in the mid-2010s, they’ve come through with a baker’s dozen of tracks for their debut LP. Closer Apart sees Ribane guide Okzharp to some spare and groovy instrumentals that whip up a mix of South African House, Kwaito, two-step, UK funky and dubstep. Atop these the singer provides some delicate autotuned vocals. Suitable for both club and home listening and out via Hyperdub.

DJ Lag & Okzharp
Steam Rooms EP

DJ Lag remains one of the most thrilling DJs in the world right now. His productions (of which there are countless) are the perfect 3am pick-me-up. On Steam Rooms EP he connects with Okzharp for four tracks which show off the best of Durban and South London. The name is apt, throw these on, and dancing or not, I'm gonna be sweating. 

DJ Haram
Grace

Recently seen making a ruckus alongside Moor Mother in 700 Bliss, DJ Haram now debuts on Hyperdub with an EP of tense club tunes. Grace pays homage to plenty of contemporary dancefloor trends without really embodying any of them. Jersey club, Baltimore club, hard drum and Fade To Mind’s future-forward beats are all in here somewhere, as are various musical styles from DJ Haram’s Middle Eastern and Islamic roots. Moor Mother shows up for the 700 Bliss team-up on ‘Candle Light’.

Mana
Seven Steps Behind

Recent years have seen Daniele Mana switch out his Vaghe Stelle moniker and simply go by his surname. Seven Steps Behind, the first LP to be released under this new title, finds Mana finessing the torrid technotronica of the Vaghe Stelle stuff into elegant, balletic electronics. Cuts such as ‘Solo’ nod to Bala Club, Leonce and Arca.

Angel-Ho
Death Becomes Her

The vital Angel-Ho lands on Hyperdub for her sophomore LP. Across Death Becomes Her we find the NON Worldwide founder turning out a selection of futuristic club jams that powerfully represent her experiences as a trans woman. Synthesizing sounds from South Africa, Atlanta, London and everywhere in between, Angel-Ho's latest offering will have the competition playing catch-up once again. The guestlist includes Gaika, Nguzunguzu’s Asmara Maroof and Queezy.

Nazar
Enclave

Debut EP from one of Hyperdub's most exciting new acts. On Enclave, Nazar has created six tracks in a style he calls rough kudoro, his take on Angolan kudoro, but married with the harsh aesthetics of dystopia. This approach acts as his commentary on the Angolan Civil war, and its consequences. 'Konvoy' was featured on Burial & Kode9's Fabriclive 100.

doon kanda
Luna EP

If you follow contemporary electronic music odds are the creature on the artwork for Luna EP will feel unsettlingly familiar. doon kana is Jesse Kanda, a visual artist who's worked with the likes of Arca, Bjork, and fka twigs. His music is surprisingly restrained, but is still disgusting in a way that makes it endlessly fascinating.

Proc Fiskal
Insula

Edinburgh prodigy Proc Fiskal follows up his 2017 The Highland Mob EP with a meaty full-length for Hyperdub. The sixteen tracks of Insula are built from the same blocks as THM, with Fiskal fusing together grime, jungle and a little bit of breakbeat. Fiskal’s music has much in common with the 160 bpm ‘ruff sound’ coming out of Novelist and Mumdance’s workhouse recently, but the craft and care that's gone into this record means Insula has an appeal that spans Mouse On Mars to Hyperdub’s recent compilation of video game music Diggin’ In The Carts.

Jessy Lanza
Oh No

The second full-length album from Jessy Lanza lands hard, skipping around the listener, buzzing with nervous energy. This is the finest of modern electro-pop, Lanza’s breathy vocals firing up the tracks she has co-produced with Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys. Oh No is again released by Hyperdub.

Darkstar
North

Though Darkstar started out as what appeared to be a club-friendly dubstep outfit, they quickly changed tack with the atmospheric slow burning electro-soul  of North. The album is a gorgeous late night listen full of deeply yearning songs that recall the Blue Nile as much as they do Burial. Their music always seems to be somewhat undervalued, but North proves that their deeply emotive songwriting can stand the test of time. 

DJ Taye
Still Trippin’

The debut LP from DJ Taye lives up to his billing as one of the leading lights of footwork’s post-Rashad world. Taking cues from his late mentor, Taye’s chops as an MC come in handy across a record that draws as heavily from the world of rap as it does from Chicago’s 160-bpm dance scene. Second track ‘Trippin’’, for example, sees Taye flexing his lyrical muscles with as much speed and dexterity as the drums in his instrumental. Chuck Inglish, DJ Paypal, UNIIQU3 and more guest.

Zomby
Ultra

It's Zomby. His music is very good -- there hasn't been a full LP since the vignette masterpiece With Love but here's Ultra, a record that promises knockout collaborations with artists including HKE, Rezzett and dubstep whisperer Burial. Crystal-clear productions, no doubt.

Diggin In The Carts : A Collection Of Pioneering Japanese Video Game Music

A huge collection of 8-bit and 16-bit bleeps and bloops collated by Diggin In The Carts co-director Nick Dwyer, and Hyperdub’s Kode 9. Comprised of thirty four tracks taken from legendary titles released on classic Japanese video game systems - from Nintendo’s Famicom to Sega’s Mega Drive, as well as from earlier platforms less familiar in the West, like the MSX. Obviously ideal for video game enthusiasts, though anyone even vaguely interested in the history of electronic music will no doubt be enthralled by the diversity of melody and tone forced out of such limited chips. Available on CD and digital for now; make sure to keep an eye out for the vinyl release, scheduled for early 2018.

DJ Tre
The Underdogg EP

Kode 9’s Hyperdub continues to shine its light on Chicago’s innovative footwork scene. A member of the city’s Teklife crew, DJ Tre’s four tracks unveil his largely as yet unheard production talent while displaying how varied the form has become. From sampling acid master Chip E to throwing in jungle breaks, it's a breakneck ride through the sound of the city’s South Side.

Lee Gamble
Mnestic Pressure

Lee Gamble’s first full-length in three years is a record of nuanced edge-of-the-dancefloor music that finds a fitting home on Hyperdub. Gamble describes Mnestic Pressure as a record that seeks to find order in an increasingly chaotic world and regain a sense of self separate from the images one is constantly subject to in 2017. This manifests itself as an album of aquatic electronica and Burial-esque post-rave stylings.

Mana
Creature EP

You may know Mana from another life. He used to release as Vaghe Stelle, and he remains part of the lauded One Circle group. That said, he’s now looking to strip away any artifice and confront himself through music, hence the change of moniker. The music on Creature is dense, claustrophobic electronica in the vein of producers like Arca and Fatima Al Qadiri.

Laurel Halo
Dust

Oh good: a new full-length album from Laurel Halo! Dust started out with recordings made by Halo along with Eli Keszler and Lafawndah, which were then cut-up and augmented by Halo’s genius electronic processes into the sleekly experimental digital pop we hear here. Additional guest appearances from Diamond Terrifier, Julia Holter and more! Out on Hyperdub.

Ikonika
Distractions

Several years in the making, the new album from Ikonika is another A-grade suite of future music from one of the most reliable producers in the dubstep / bass music / etc. world. Distractions is full of shining synths and rhythm patterns from R&B and hip-hop, as well as guest appearances from Jessy Lanza and MC Jammz. Out on Hyperdub.

Zomby x Burial
Sweetz

2 of electronic bass music’s most illustrious anonymous producers (although they aren’t really anonymous anymore) put their heads together at last for this collaboration. Zomby and Burial both know how to make the darkness ripple, and Sweets is bound to entrance plenty of heads. Limited edition of 5000 on single-sided white label 10”: they’ll probably still sell out quick though.

Quarta 330
Pixelated EP

The rather quite consistent and generally ever-relevant Hyperdub imprint usher out an EP from Japan’s Quarta 330, ten years on from his first encounter with the label through remixing Kode9. His Pixelated EP twists and bends chiptune through melodic jazz-fusion, dubstep blends and more atmospheric cuts. There’ll likely be more to follow from this fella once this vinyl 12” is out.

DJ Taye
Move Out EP

Hyperdub furthers its footwork fascination with another care package from Chi-town’s Teklife mainstay DJ Taye. Opening the Move Out EP is the DJ Manny-featuring “Burnin Ya Boa”, which showcases the sort of rhythmically-chopped vocals we’ve come to expect. Outside of that, the track’s a curiously maudlin affair making it very much worth getting lost in.

DVA [Hi:Emotions]
NOTU_URONLINEU

DVA has appended his [Hi:Emotions] sub-moniker to this new album, which sets it out as a slightly looser, wilder entity. NOTU_URONLINEU, which was recorded in the dark, is an amazing listen that feels as much like free electronic improvisation as it does a set of club tracks: acid synth lines and unexpected rhythmic flips come flying out of the mix left right and centre, and it sounds glorious! Out on Hyperdub.

Endgame
Flesh EP

Endgame has fingers in a number of London underground club culture pies, so he’s perfectly placed to drop unusual killer tracks like these. The Flesh EP mixes grime and drill styles with a bit of South American influence, resulting in heavyweight rollers with a wonderfully uneasy atmosphere. Guest MCing on one track from Organ Tapes. 12” on Hyperdub.

Burial
Untrue

By the time Burial's second album surfaced, his reputation had grown to underground stardom, even if his identity was still a secret. 'Untrue' continued the story of the twilit inner city, loneliness and distant threats informing a melancholic rhythmic atmosphere, and is now seen as a landmark in electronic music.

Babyfather
"BBF" Hosted By DJ Escrow

Babyfather -who I think you’ll find is a pseudonym for Dean Blunt, often working alongside Arca (though we've been told by Hyperdub this isn't who it is despite the earlier EP being credited to both - legal ed) is clearly in a archly sarcastic state-of-the-nation mood: just look at that sleeve art! “BBF” Hosted By DJ Escrow is the first full-length attributed to the project, and slides slickly around that murky Blunt territory. Includes ‘Meditation’. On Hyperdub.

Fhloston Paradigm
Cosmosis Vol 2

Hyperdub regular Fhloston Paradigm returns to the label for the sequel to his Cosmosis series. Cosmosis Volume 2 on vinyl 12” returns to the knotty synthesizers and downbeat electronica we loved in the original. These three tracks have a deep and soulful sound, where gorgeous organic textures combine with intense artificial rhythms.

Fatima Al Qadiri
Brute

Brute is another leap forward for Fatima Al Qadiri’s high-concept, politicised electronic music, and Hyperdub records is the perfect home for it. The album’s theme is state violence and the militarisation of the police and Al Qadiri adapts global electronic sounds to make her arguments. This is futuristic, but also dystopian, electronic music that will still sound great played in a dingy club.

Fhloston Paradigm
Cosmosis Vol 1

Fhloston Paradigm is a pseudonym of Philadelphia groover King Britt, following a busy career with releases on plenty of your favourite labels. Cosmosis Vol. 1 lands on Hyperdub, where it’s adventurous range of tracks (spanning ambience, twitchy soundscapery and hard analogue house) fit right in with the crowd. 12” EP.

Kode9
Nothing

Believe it or not, this is bass music veteran and Hyperdub boss Kode9’s first ever full-length solo record (having previously made albums with the sadly departed Spaceape). Nothing works in grime and footwork influences along with typically low-slung Kode9 rollers: several tracks also acknowledge Spaceape by leaving empty space for the absent vocalist.

Cooly G
Armz House EP

The ever-unpredictable Cooly G hits us with another curveball following the quiet storm R&B of 2014's Wait 'Til Night LP. Stepping aside from the emotive and sexually charged material of the previous release, the five tracks that make up Armz House constitute the London DJ/producer's individual take on stripped-back house. The fact that it works so well is testament to her talent.

Jessy Lanza, DJ Spinn & Taso
You Never Show Your Love EP

Canadian electronic songwriter/producer/vocalist Jessy Lanza has got together with Teklife founder/DJ/producer/MC DJ Spinn and DJ/producer Taso to produce ‘You Never Show Your Love’ EP, featuring a Teklife footwork remix from the late DJ Rashad. Also included is Bambounou’s remix of ‘Fuck Diamond’ from Lanza’s debut album ‘Pull My Hair Back’.

Various
Next Life

This latest compilation on Hyperdub concentrates on showcasing Chicago's footwork scene carrrying on from where the great DJ Rashad left off. Full to the brim of manic samples and energetic rhythms. 20 all new tracks from RP Boo, Traxman, DJ Spinn, Gantman, Manny DJ Earl, Taye, Boylan, Phil, Taso, Sirr Tmoand DJ Rashad himself. A great document of a burgeoning scene. 

Cooly G
Wait ‘Til Night

'Wait 'Til Night' is the follow-up to dubstep artist Cooly G's debut record, 'Playin' Me'. In a surprising turn of events, the record sees Cooly G take on an R&B influence, diminishing the eerie, twilit club vibe of her first record and her DJ sets (as evidenced by the dancefloor-ready dubstep she threw in to her Boiler Room set). More of the usual subversion from Hyperdub.

Walton
Beyond

The debut LP from (Sam) Walton arrives courtesy of Hyperdub. Beyond is very much a line in the sand for where the label is at in 2013 - indeed, for where British club culture is at in 2013. Juke, post-dubstep, Hessle Audio’s warped soundsystem sonics and the futuro-club of Jam City all combine sharply with Hyperdub’s trademark bassweight flex here.
