Issue 138: Kode9 & The Spaceape: Sunshine Supermen
In this issue, we talk with dubstep's elder statesmen, Kode9 and The Spaceape, about their new LP, Black Sun, and what's become of dubstep in the last decade. We also chat with dubstep periphery seekers Instra:Mental on their new album, and venture into the sweaty ballroom underground with the likes of DJ MikeQ, Angel X, and Vjuan Allure. Bulgarian techno from KiNK, fresh house sounds from Maya Jane Coles, straight-up weirdness from Hype Williams, and plenty more to keep you warm until things get really sunny.
