DJ Rashad announces full-length on Hyperdub, full North American tour with labelmates Kode9 and Ikonika, even stickier kush

Here at TMT you know we turnt up/ turnt up/ turn-t/ up. Pause. You know we turnt up/ turnt up/ turn-/t up. Pause. You know we turn turn/ turn turn/ turn-tup. Pause. You know we turnt up/ tur-turn-t up/ tur-turn-t up/ tur-tur-nt up.

So when Mr P stormed into the office this morning carrying two Target bags full of molly and off-brand orange juice, he didn’t even need to say it, we all knew: DJ Rashad had just announced a full-length album on his home away from home, Hyperdub Records. Twenty minutes later I’m feelin hi af but for the readers I cut myself off to finish this story. The album’s called Double Cup, and like all his past releases it features a rotating cast of friends and associates: Spinn, Earl, and Manny (welcome back), plus SF-based Taso and young buck Addison Groove. “I Don’t Give a Fuck” is smack dab in the middle of the 14 tracks, but otherwise it’s all fresh material inspired by “Drank, Kush, Barz” and Rashad’s own rapidfire muse. Props to Hyperdub for providing the $$ without the “please water it down” caveat. Double Cup comes out October 22 on CD/2xLP/digital, and apparently moves from “low slung, g-funk flavor” into “jagged breakbeat science” without taking more than a couple breaths in between.

To celebrate, Rashad is teaming up with Hyperdub label head Kode9 and generally hyper labelmate Ikonika for a rare US/Canada (+ Mexico) tour; check the dates below, and check them carefully because the lineup varies depending on the city.

Shit, just saw P run into the bathroom, gotta go hold his hair back. Bye!
