Tim Reaper b2b Kode9
Londoner Tim Reaper has an ear for jungle, drum & bass and hardcore sounds that's found him releasing on Lobster Theremin, Parallax, !K7 and Hooversound and collaborating with everyone from Special Request and Coco Bryce to breakcore veteran Dev/Null and Aussie producer Kloke. Heading up the Future Retro London label that specializes in newskool jungle - releasing artists like Sully, Sub Focus and Dwarde - Reaper balances reverence for the genre's deep history with an unmistakable excitement for its evolution.
Kode9 hardly needs any introduction here; an author, producer and DJ as well as the boss of London's influential Hyperdub label, Steve Goodman has left an indelible mark on the hardcore continuum. As a curator, he's handled music from Burial, aya, Scratchclart, Dean Blunt, Laurel Halo and many others, and as a producer he's released a run of albums and EPs that have helped examine radical shifts in soundsystem culture. Goodman's latest album is "Escapology", a sonic fiction that melts gqom, amapiano, footwork and minimal techno into a fractal spiral of lost futures.
