Sub-Culture are very excited to welcome back one of our favourite artists of the 21st century, the one and only KODE 9.

Although born in the city of Glasgow, Scotland, Kode9 is genetically a junglist. He started DJing in 1990 at the age of 16, playing a fusion of reggae, breaks, hip hop, jazz, funk and house. He was subsequently swept up by the emergence of the breakbeat hardcore, jungle and drum’n’bass scenes, and has been rinsin’ breaks, ragga chat and bubblin’ basslines ever since. DJing across the UK during the 90s, from Edinburgh, to Coventry, Kode9 migrated to London in 1997, suffering infection to darker strains of the emergent 2step garage scene, and after forming his label/collective Hyperdub in 2004, electronic music would never be the same again.

With a roster of people including Burial, Ikonika, The Bug, King Midas Sound, Darkstar, Zomby and many, many more, Hyperdub consistently puts out some of the most forward thinking and futuristic music out there. His recent mixtape release for DJ Kicks shows just how flexible and imaginative Kode 9’s tastes and skills are. A true pioneer and manipulator of soundwaves, once you’ve experienced one of Kode 9’s set, you will never be the same again.

虽说Kode9在苏格兰的Glasgow出生,但却是个天生的jungle战士。1990年,当Kode9还只是个16岁的少年,他就已经站在DJ台后操控着舞池中的所有情绪,那时的他已经涉猎从reggae,hip-hop,jazz,funk到house等多种音乐类型。97年移居伦敦,从那时候起他以自身极高的音乐素养和DJ技艺在伦敦音乐圈迅速建立起声名,当时的breakbeat hardcore,jungle和drum and bass对他产生了深远的影响,这些音乐几乎取代了他的生活。整个90年代他跑遍大不列颠东南西北,在那段岁月里他不断将breaks,ragga和一些超重低音类型的音乐在DJ台上把玩出新花样,随后又受到2step garage的感染,一发而不可收拾。2004年,他着手创建了自己的音乐厂牌Hyperdub,至此,电子音乐的发展出现了里程碑式的变化,这个世界早已不可与往昔同日而语。

在Hyperdub出品的音乐人名单上,Burial, Ikonika, The Bug, King Midas Sound, Darkstar, Zomby等等这些世界超级先锋音乐人的名字都囊括在内,厂牌固执的将极为前卫的音乐动机和极富未来感的音乐推介给世人。在刚刚发行的,为DJ Kicks(并非DJ,是很多DJ联合推广的一个Mixtape系列)做的Mixtape中完美的展现了Kode9惊人的前瞻性和过人的曲目编排能力,将这个时代电音的发展前景开阔的铺陈在你眼前,同时你也能领略到他非同一般的品味和绝佳的DJ技巧。
