Podcast 108: Kode 9's Bubble 'N' Squeak Mix

When it comes to dubstep and the outer fringes of UK garage, few names ring out quite like Kode9. Next week, the Hyperdub label head will release 5, a two-disc compilation that both looks back at the influential label's history and lays the groundwork for its future. To help commemorate the release, we asked Kode9 to submit something for the XLR8R podcast. Apparently, 5 has put the man in a historical mood, as he delivered this Bubble 'N' Squeak Mix, comprised entirely of classic UK garage and 2-step from 1999-2002. Originally aired as part of the special 25th-Anniversary broadcast of Radio Lancashire's On the Wire, XLR8R and Hyperdub are now making it available as a proper download.

Dubstep doesn't fit into a pigeon hole it's to big, except the hug!

Big mix. The GC tune listed as '1999' is actually 'millennium funk' tho.

kode9 are two individuals if you didn't know. just sayin.

p.s. i read a review for Basswerk Vol. 3 from last yr and am still salty by its words. Drum & Bass has evolved a great deal and always will. You critics just don't know good music.

Kode9 is only one person: Steve Goodman. Get your records straight, Absynth. Check yo'self before you wreck yo'self.
