Some weeks after hearing Kode9‘s latest cut on Benji B’s radio show, the release from the Hyperdub founder is only a couple of days away. Beside the title track which you can stream in full above, the 12-inch is backed up by another track called Kan on the flipside. You can pick this up at your favourite record store starting April 29, or you can order your copy online at Juno or Boomkat. The digital release should be available on the Hyperdub store by then.
With three gigs all over Asia taking place this week, Hyperdub boss Kode9 put together a mix to promote his DJ-sets. If you’re in Shanghai (September 21st at Shelter), Manila (24th at B-Side) or Hong Kong (25th at Backstage), make sure not to miss the man!

Whenever there’s a new DJ-Kicks coming out, there are up to three options to choose from: the actual mixed CD, a 12-inch with an exclusive track from that mix, and an unmixed LP. I think it started with the DJ-Kicks from Hot Chip, that !K7 introduced a free download.
As mentioned yesterday, the latest in the series comes from Hyperdub founder Kode9 and you can now download the dub version of his exclusive track.
June 22nd is the day, you should be able to get your hands on the Kode9 DJ-Kicks.
Still a couple of weeks to go before Kode9’s DJ-Kicks will be in stores, but the Hyperdub founder just finished an oldskool jungle mixtape for FACT Magazine (I wonder how the folks at !K7 will like that.)

For the first time in ages I feel good going back to that period, 2010 seems to be the official year to do so.
The aforementioned DJ-Kicks will be out on June 22nd and the release will be accompanied by a club-tour around the world – check Kode9’s MySpace for details!
In the brandnew episode of XLR8R TV, Hyperdub founder Kode9 speaks about the different streams of dubstep, his time as university professor, upcoming releases on the label and other things. Quite entertaining!
