The only mixtape that you need in 2020 comes from Parisian dj and one-man club destroyer Teki Latex AKA The King of Blends and Tokyo based video game music historian Nick Dwyer AKA Diggin’ In The Carts who have joined forces to bring you “TEKI AND NICK’S MIXTAPE QUEST ADVENTURE” (???????U??????????????), 73 tracks and almost 80 min long this is a unique blend of golden era age video game soundtracks, hip hop acapellas and bass-heavy dance music, with mixtape exclusives from some of underground music’s finest such as Kode 9, Ikonika, Mumdance, Foodman, Jammz and ShiShi Yamazaki.

“In spring 2012 an entourage from DWT went to Chicago to document the footwork scene. A scene ingrained in the lineage of the city itself, filled with effervescent dancers, storytellers and beatmakers. It was single handedly the most unique and in-depth tour we had ever experienced.

Featuring key players on the scene, such as DJ Rashad, DJ Spinn, Manny, Traxman and Arpebu. The team navigated through the South and West sides of the Windy City living with the GHETTOTEKNITIANZ or as they fondly refer to them self members of Teklife.

They slept on floors, sofas and in dodgy motels with their charming hosts. All the while managing to obtain un-seen footage from the finest producers, footworkers and the good people of Chi-Town.
It’s taken our team a long and painstaking while to put this together. We hope to do the people who shared their homes, talent and ultimately their lives with us, proud.

Go buy “NEXT LIFE” now! All profits go to Chad (DJ Rashad’s son)”

In celebration of Kode9′s imprint Hyperdub turning 10 years old, the label has released it’s final compilation of a four part series earlier this week. Filled with new and unreleased material from various alumni, a track from Ossie and PHRH stands out as a dynamic electro-soul tune. “Ugly Observation” features large industrial drums muffled under hyper distorted vocals and oscillating synths, ending with an intense tribal bassline and heavy pitch shifting. This track and the entire release “Hyperdub 10.4” is now available for purchase on their website.
