coll: Hyperdub 10.1|
WOW. GREAT 2-DISC COMPILATION FROM Hyperdub featuring old songs and new ones from serious heavy hitters [Mala, DJ Rashad, DJ Earl, Ikonika, Kode9] to celebrate the London-based label’s 10 year anniversary. Lots of ghetto house, chicago juke, footwerk, dubstep, uk bass, etc. Characterized by fast (150-160) BPMS, kick drums, syncopation, snares, claps, and low frequencies.
FCC: 1-7, 1-12, 2-1

*1. (3:55) Dark but bouncy low frequencies. Old school dubstep. Cuts to 80’s synthy sample for a hot minute, and then returns to the bassment.

**3.(4:29) Mala brings the dark & evil vibes. Plodding bass & melancholic synths. TOM, PLAY THIS!
4. (3:43) Snare-y dubstep with a warm but distant vibe. For snowy, late-nite walks through industrial areas.
*5. (3:39) Label boss Kode9. Faster bass with snares, drum machines, and synths. Punchy.
