Yes, we love Hyperdub over here at Tiny Mix Tapes. Three of its releases made our Favorite 50 Albums of 2012 list, including two in the top 5 (Laurel Halo’s Quarantine and Dean Blunt & Inga Copeland’s Black Is Beautiful). And yes, we love footwork here too: footwork releases have made our year-end lists for the past several years, including two from last year: DJ Rashad’s TEKLIFE Vol. 1 and Traxman’s Da Mind of Traxman.
So it is with pure, unfiltered, unadulterated, unsupervised joy to announce that DJ Rashad, tha shiznit of footwork, will be hooking up with Hyperdub for an EP called Rollin. Aside from an announced release month of March, no further details have yet been revealed, but we’re beyond excited over here (Squeo’s behind me right now working on his erks, dribbles, and ghosts, while Nobodaddy has an MPC 1000 in his Amazon cart. On company time, those sneaky fucks!)
Meanwhile, The Manny & Rashad Show, Rashad’s long-anticipated release with DJ Manny, is apparently due February 13 via Lit City Trax. Check out “Look How She Dancing” here:
