Notable Release(s): DJ Rashad Double Cup, Kode9 - "Kan," Burial Rival Dealer
Hyperdub is in full celebration mode, with 2014 marking a decade of the finest in bass music. How did they lead into that anniversary? By spending 2013 showing just why they have been on the cusp of these movements. From DJ Rashad's brilliant Double Cup (and the two EPs that preceded it) to Burial's recently-release Rival Dealer EP, Kode9 found a way to not only push boundaries, but expose the sounds that too many music fans are neglecting.
