VA - Hyperdub 10.1 - 2 x 12
Featuring a vast selection of cuts from USA to the UK, this double disc, as part of the 10th anniversary of Kode9's Hyperdub label, features a wide range of original, forward dance music.
Be it the Juke / Footwork mutations of DJ Rashad, Taso, Djunya or DJ Earl and DJ Spinn, or the new-wave UK Funky of Champion or electroid 'floor music of Quarta 330 and Ikonika - across the four sides, we find a deliberately unhinged, yet fully focused range of dancefloor music, in the guise of many forms, rhythms and tempo's.
Just listen to the clips and make up your mind, but we'd say this is another great representation of the Hyperdub label's vast palette and taste, and a good all-round taste of the hyperdub sound that's moving dancefloors across the globe right now, or soon to be.
A very solid compilation, cut loud and clear, presented stylishly.
