- The label's next anniversary compilation showcases its beatless side.
Hyperdub has revealed details of its third 10th anniversary compilation, Hyperdub 10.3.
While Hyperdub 10.1 and 10.2 shone light on the label's dance floor and songwriting dimensions, this collection champions its beatless and ambient sounds.
Inevitably, the tracklist kicks off with the label's chief protagonist of melancholy, Burial. There's new material from the likes of Kode9, The Bug, Dean Blunt, Inga Copeland, Lee Gamble, Cooly G, Fatima Al Qadiri, Ikonika, DJ Earl and Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan, while older cuts from King Midas Sound, Darkstar and Laurel Halo also feature.
The result is a collection of tunes the labels says is "free of drums and often basslines, leaving only synthesised, sampled or looped textures that often hang like a cloud of gas, or rotate without friction like mini cyclones."
