Hyperdub x Analogue release an ACTUAL game console with game cartridge music comp, titled Konsolation
Konsolation may or may not actually float.

I can be a curmudgeon when it comes to celebrating anniversaries, but if it involves an incredible label going the extra mile to honor 15 years of operation, I’m 100% down. Fresh off their joint release with Adult Swim a little over a week ago — not to mention their collection of rare Japanese video game music from 2017 — Hyperdub today announces an incredibly unique compilation, thanks to their partnership with Analogue, a company that specializes in manufacturing products that pay homage to video game history.

Yep, this isn’t just any compilation — Hyperdub x Analogue are releasing an actual game console: a special-edition Sega Genesis bundle (a.k.a. “Sega Mega Drive” to those outside of North America), which includes a game cartridge filled with exclusive tracks from various Hyperdub artists. Burial, Jessy Lanza, Lee Gamble, DJ Taye, and Proc Fiskal are all on there, for starters.

Plus the game system actually works! So once you’re done futilely attempting to rip Konsolation to your computer, you can pop in Ecco the Dolphin for some maritime stress relief.

Go here to purchase — it’s limited to 1,000 — and check some track snippets below.
