5.0 out of 5 stars Consistency of tunes like early Warp...
Double CD compilation of one of the most innovative labels to emerge in the last five years. Kode9's Hyperdub has really gone from strength to strength with each of its releases. Since Kode9's early 10"s via Burial's debut, various Kevin Martin aliases and the purple sound of Joker; Hyperdub's mission is to spread the virus of Bass music in all of its strains.
Anyone...

2.0 out of 5 stars Overrated
Listen to this album once and you will be impresed by the innovative production techniques and new sounds. Listen to it again and imagine that a room full of chimps are randomly hitting synthesiser keyboards and you will uncovered the true soul of this album. This makes dubstep look like a limited, brainless genre (which is very almost is) and could do without such over...

Anyone who has witnessed Kode9 spin in the last few years will know that his sets always feature a number of Hyperdub dubs and it's more often than not these tunes that really standout and make his sets that little bit more fulfilling and simply jaw dropping.
Forward facing music from the underground for the underground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch yer bass bins, I'm tellin' ya, 3 Oct 2009

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: 5 : Five Years Of Hyperdub (Audio CD)
THE PAST:

Techno 1 & 2, Bio Rhythm 1 & 2, 25 West 38th - A NuGroove Compilation, Retro Techno, Artificial Intelligence, BCD.

THREE STEPS TO DUBSTEP:

1: "Ghost Town" The Specials (2 Tone)
2: "It Could Not Happen" Critical Rhythm (NuGroove)
3: "Black Secret Technology" A Guy Called Gerald (Juice Box)

THE FUTURE (HYPERDUB):

Rheji Burrell, Richard D James, Drexciya and Linton Kwesi Johnson (trapped in an elevator). 21st century European urban sprawl. Cities where the magic has gone, maybe never to come back, that's the magic.

Do you understand? If you do - buy this. If you don't - buy this.

Every single track on this double CD (all 32 of them) reminds me of the first time I heard Rhythim is Rhythim's "Emanon". It IS that good.

Music for the next decade.

Listen to it again and imagine that a room full of chimps are randomly hitting synthesiser keyboards and you will uncovered the true soul of this album. This makes dubstep look like a limited, brainless genre (which is very almost is) and could do without such over hyped rubbish. There are soe gems hidden amoungst the garbage but it is hardly worth the effort. Look around for some Appleblim mixes or something else of the dubstep genre that is not so boring.
