Kode9 & The Spaceape – Otherman/Love Is The Drug (feat ChaCha) – Out now!

Published March 31, 2011 by subcultureshanghai


The lead 12″ from Kode9 and Spaceape’s forthcoming album ‘Black Sun’ has just dropped into the record shops, with the stunning ‘Otherman’ backed with ‘Love Is The Drug’ feat ChaCha- two deadly tracks from the superb follow up to 2006’s ‘Memories Of The Future’!!

From Boomkat:

‘Hyperdub’s head honcho serves a first taster of his forthcoming ‘Black Sun’ LP with two mystikal entries featuring Space Ape and Cha Cha. Furthering his new, up-stepping sound from the ’09 single ‘Black Sun’, A-side ‘Otherman’ sails in on signature, wheezing melodica surrounded by melting synth drones before Tech-stepped swing drums and cone-imploding subs suck the air from the room, perhaps explaining Spaceape’s breathless, distanced vocal. Flipside, ‘Love Is The Drug’ introduces Cha Cha, an MC/Singer from Guizhou, China and in possession of a superbly sultry, spectral delivery, over a sleeker, heavy rolling riddim matched with melancholy synthlines twisted into mournful cadences. It’s standardly moody Kode 9 business and a class tease for the album (which is absolutely ace, as it goes). Really into this – highly recommended.’
