His genre-stepping Hyperdub label has shaped many a career, most notable for 'discovering' Mercury Music Prize winner, "Burial", and drawing some of the biggest names in bass music such as "Joker", "Zomby" and "The Bug". His own Kode9 productions are just as uncompromising, known for delving into the deepest, heaviest sounds found at the edges of what's expected. Kode9 doesn't play out all that often, so a rare session with the Hyperdub master is frankly not to be missed.
KODE9 + BURIAL MIX: http://www.gorillavsbear.net/2010/09/09/mix-burial-kode9-for-mary-anne-hobbs/
You could describe Deadboy’s music as heartache for the dancefloor. Tapping into London’s rich musical heritage from Scott Walker to early 90’s Hardcore all the way through to UK Garage and House, Deadboy’s tracks somehow still share the same sense of futuristic melancholia as the first wave of Detroit Techno by the likes of Derrick May and Juan Atkins. Recently signed to respected record label NUMBERS, Deadboy is set for big things.
DEADBOY UN-BONGO MIX: http://nmbrs.net/mix/tropical-tapes-001-deadboy-mix-for-un-bongo/
Scratcha's record bag boasts a timeline of British rave culture from jungle to present day, but at the moment you’ll hear him playing a predominantly “funky” based show. Wire Magazine called his set with Roska at Bloc Weekender 2010 “the most enjoyable of the festival”. Always informative, DVA's sets favor upfront and left of center music. Some of his many fans include Kode 9, Sinden, Roska, Mary Anne Hobbs and Appleblim.
