Kode 9 - DJ Kicks + New K9 House production

As many of you by now know, Hyperdub label boss and all round good guy (he produces, DJs, teaches at a university level, lectures all over the world and has written a book... Hands/Pies.) has just completed the latest DJ Kicks compilation, and it is a treat - kicking off with some nice mellower house bits and moving up into more energetic funky and finally finishing off with some serious Terror Danjah/DMZ/Zomby heat (the mix from Stiff >> Mountain Dread March >> Godzilla = woiiiii).

The Burial DJ Kicks was famously never completed, but this more than satistfiies me - I highly recommend you pick that up from your local retailer, or here online on it's release date (June 22nd). In the meantime, DJ Kicks have released an exclusive new production from the man himself, a classic house production from the Hyperdub don, moving into altogether mellower and less broken beat territory for the producer. Also worth mentioning is his new mix from Fact, showcasing the man's enthusiasm for '94-'96 era jungle. Check that out over at the Fact site here.

It would be silly to mention the DJ Kicks compilation without making a big deal out of the launch party - it's hosted by London and Brighton clubnight Deadly Rhythm.
If you don't know about this night, get to know - they just hosted a Hotflush party for Mount Kimbie's album launch that blew the head off Plan B in Brixton. Deadly Rhythm soundsystem plays all over and Deadly Rhythm Soundsystem's Paste will be putting together the next mix in our Squeaky Bleeps mix series (apparently anyway... if he ever gets round to it).

The launch party takes place at Plan B on the 25th June - Kode 9 headlines the affair, with HudMo, Rustie and Paul White supporting him in Room 1, and Room 2 shifting from hiphop vibes to more of a funky/bashment vibe with Lil Silva, The Heatwave, Hardhouse Banton and Lego (Bricks).

The facebook event is over here, and if you don't click attending then you must be maaaad. Or even better, grab an £8 advanced ticket here.
