Watch Cooly G, DVA, and The Bug Talk Hyperdub
- Words: Elissa Stolman
Tiger Beer's Hidden Depths series continues its exploration of prominent UK record labels this week with Hyperdub. On June 13, Hyperdub founder Kode9 will perform at KOKO in London alongside roster mates Cooly G, DVA, and Laurel Halo (as well as non-Hyperdub artists Actress and Rashad & DJ Spinn) for the second installment. Ahead of that event, Tiger Beer and London online music hub FACT have put together a five-minute video of interview clips with Cooly G, DVA, and King Midas Sound producer The Bug to help present the history and development of Kode9's iconic imprint. The interviews also illuminate some of the inner workings of Hyperdub—according to Cooly G, they were "like a family from the beginning," and DVA encourages producers that Kode9 might still be listening to your tunes even if he never emails you back—as well as previews of two tunes from Cooly G's upcoming album Playin' Me.
