Kode9 Shares ‘Rinse:22’ Exclusives, Announces Hyperdub-Heavy Launch Party With Inga Copeland, Cooly G, Ikonika and More



Not content with simply releasing a new AA single through his own Hyperdub label, Kode9 has shared two exclusive tracks from his upcoming Rinse FM mix. Available to stream below, “Uh” and “Ok” will be available in 12” form on June 3rd, two weeks after the actual set drops. According to a press release, Rinse:22 “is a snapshot of his current club sets and selections for Rinse FM’s Hyperdub show, which over the last few years have converged on trap-inspired hip-hop beats and Chicago footwork. Both those styles express many of those same characteristics.”

Or as Kode9 himself puts it, “The hip-hop and footwork has all got that double time thing–a slow bass underpinning, with those double time drums and percussion on top–that I used to love in jungle. It’s weird, ’cause when people talk about hip hop and footwork these days, they tend to get infatuated with it being functional music, club music and street music. Which is all true, but what’s more interesting is how rhythmically sophisticated it is, compared with most music that’s around these days.”

Check out a breakdown of the entire compilation below, along with the flyer for its Hyperdub-heavy launch party…
