I like compilations. When I saw this double CD (for 4.00 $) at Renaissance Montréal, I was curious. I don`t know any artists / bands involved and I never heard the name Hyperdub before. Hyperdub is a UK record label founded in 2004 by Kode9 (a London-based DJ and electronic music artist). You will hear music from the likes of King Midas Sound, Kode9, Darkstar, Samiyam, Flying Lotus, Black Chow, Burial, Cooly G, Zomby, Martyn, LV, Mala, LD, Quarta 330, Joker & Ginz, Ikonika, The Bug and 200F. The music is mostly dub / dubstep mixed with experimental, chiptune, 8-bit, and electronic music elements. I discovered dubstep circa 2009 while listening to the electronic explorations podcasts http://electronicexplorations.org/.
