Tears were shed when Scratcha DVA traded in his legendary Rinse FM breakfast show for a regular Hyperdub show on the station.
As much as we miss the ill-conceived competitions and less than politic commentary on the Rinse A-List, the new showcase slot has proved essential listening. Variously helmed by Hyperdub boss Kode9 and Scratcha, the monthly show has been a wellspring of Hyperdub exclusives and forward-thinking bubblers.
As Dummy note, the label have now uploaded nine mixes from the vaults, dating from February to October 2012. Guests include Machinedrum, Ossie and Hype Williams’ Inga Copeland. The collection also includes a free new version of LV’s 2012 track ‘Boomslang’, posted in honour of the instrumental release of LV’s 2012 Sebenza. Head here to fill your boots.
