Hyperdub 10th Anniversary Comp Out Today


10 years goes by so fast… When Hyperdub was first a blurry gleam on the East London horizon, Britain was still flush with the boom years. Everyone in the country had a job that paid enough money to buy a small Caribbean island, Shoreditch was jostling with chortling graphic designers injecting caviar flavoured gack into their asymettrical hair, and bankers marched the land pissing money from their golden willies.

Maybe Hyperdub's moody sensibilites, all twilight synths and echo chamber doom were a terrible harbinger of all that would follow – 3 years after the label started the country was in the shit, and every kid in London was listening to Burial. Now, 10 years on, the countries still, essentially, in the shit (mad bastards in charge, racists on the rise, rich people with all the cash etc etc) but, on the plus side, Hyperdub has grown into an amazing powerhouse of a label. To celebrate 10 years of being better at this releasing electronic music lark than pretty much anyone else, the label is running a series of 12"s from their favourite producers, and one mahoosive compilation as a download – with teh comp being available from today. There's 33 tracks on there, with producers demonstrating the full range of the labels output, from Champion's UK funky bass mutations, to Kyle Hall's neo Detroit techno, to footwork innovation from the sadly recently departed DJ Rashaad.
