Hyperdub releases new Walton LP a.k.a. yet another delicious, sugary Hyperdub donut

All the artists on the Hyperdub roster are pretty damn sweet. It’s like, Hyperdub is the local bakery where there are 30 different kinds of donuts and when you walk in an old lady is like, “Have a sample, dearie,” but the sample isn’t really a sample — it’s like, practically the size of a full donut. And then at the Hyperdub Simile Bakery they throw an extra cookie into the bag at the end, just as a thank you. And you’re looking at all these records/donuts and they all look amazing and there’s like five different donuts with sprinkles on ‘em and like, one with bacon on top, and then there’s like HOLY SHIT IT’S THAT GLAZED DONUT WITH ACTUAL PEACHES FROM THE FARMER’S MARKET SHOVED INTO IT AND mmmmmmm so good mmmmm food coma SUGAR. And if Hyperdub is this enchanted bakery, then 22-year-old Mancunian producer Sam Walton is that juicy peach donut. (Or the bacon one, if you’re into that sorta thing.)

Walton has been with Hyperdub since 2011, when he started sending the label demo tracks and eventually signed on for the appropriately-titled Walton EP, the first of three EPs he released that year. Now he’s back with the full-length Beyond, a sassy melange of grit, grime, funk, atmospheric stuff, and… other stuff. The album, which is Hyperdub’s first full-length for 2013, drops July 1. Preceding the release is Walton’s Baby 12-inch, which just made its way into the world (and our hearts, ahhhhhh) on May 27, also via the good people at Hyperdub. Check the title track for that here:
