Hyperdub continues to be the best 10-year-old around, announces third anniversary comp feat. Burial, Dean & Inga, Laurel Halo, Fatima Al Qadiri, and more

Children — the youngins, if you will — can be so desperate for attention sometimes. You can’t get a moment’s peace before one intrudes with their shrill, breathless voice to say something of little-to-no value. They’re incessant, incorrigible. But look, they’re just youngins, they’ll learn to keep their mouth shut like the rest of us one day! For now, all you can do is be calm and patient, showing the bare minimum of interest, an absentminded nod or an “uh huh,” because, let’s face it, they don’t know the difference anyway. And that’s fine I suppose, but wouldn’t it be great if more 10-year-olds were like Hyperdub?

You see, this year marks the label’s 10th birthday, and instead of demanding an iPad and an Adventure Time cake, Hyperdub decided to be a good little youngin and repay its fans with a celebratory series of four compilations. The first was a collection of the label’s more dancefloor-ready music: the grime, the footwork, the booty-shakers. The second showcased their twisted R&B tendencies. And now Hyperdub has announced its third anniversary compilation, Hyperdub 10.3, which will be released on September 22 and focus on the label’s brand of “atmospheric beatless moments” and “downcast ambience.” Like the other compilations, it features a mix of old and new material from the likes of Kode9, Dean Blunt, Inga Copeland, Burial, Lee Gamble, Cooly G, Fatima Al Qadiri, Laurel Halo, and more. So maybe youngins everywhere should learn by example. Because let’s be real, the world doesn’t need more macaroni pictures. It needs more spaced-out electronic music.
