Kode9 Announces New Single

Hyperdub label head and legendary figure of all things forward-thinking in the UK bass music world, Kode9, has a new record with long-time collaborator The Spaceape, entitled Black Sun slated for release in the coming months. Now, Hyperdub has announced the release of “Otherman” b/w “Love Is the Drug,” the first single to come from the forthcoming LP. “Otherman” finds the two Londoners in somewhat familiar territory, Kode9 mining a dense soundscape of arpeggiated analog synths and crisp percussions while The Spaceape floats through down-trodden rhymes with asymmetrical rhythms. The b-side features guest vocalist Cha Cha (who is slated to appear on three other tracks for the album) adding a sultry layer of melancholy to Kode9’s dark, subdued production. If this single is any indication, we should expect a very diverse range of sounds and tracks on Black Sun and we couldn’t be more excited about it. You can check the artwork for the single below.
