Ill BluClapper EP 1. Clapper / 2. Clapper - Traxman Remix HYPERDUB HDB062  Release Date: April 30th 2012 UK / May 1st 2012 USAIll Blu return to Hyperdub for their second single with ‘Clapper’, which contrasts deceptively swinging claps and funky but martial drums with crazy pitched up and down synth stabs and shrieks that sound like psychotically angry birds, it’s an incredibly infectious and energising club banger that manages to retain its swagger without losing its sense of humour. On the flip - West Chicago’s juke and footwork Veteran Traxman takes the bpm up to 160bpm with his energetic mix, which takes the mood darker, switching from 4 / 4 kicks to 808 electro claps, with jittery punched in stabs giving the track a nervous energy.

WALTON “ALL NIGHT EP” (HYPERDUB HDB061)
A: All Night AA1: Mallet AA2: Cush 
Release Date: 23rd April 2012
Young Mancunian Walton drops his second EP ‘All Night’ for Hyperdub after his 2011 Hyperdub debut ‘The Walton EP’. ‘All Night’ kicks it off with warm plucked strings, diva moans and lazer-like synths stretched to the point of anticipation over cracking grime handclaps and bass drums, until the track drops into a blocky bass line playing hide and seek with low arpeggios that spiral in and out of the mix, over a giant pounding metallic kick drum before layering on the warmth again, the whole track plays with a fine balance between warm, exuberant disco-like lushness and exuberant roughness. ‘Mallet’ is driving and darker, building detuned, bell-like tones over a 4/4 beat accented by breaks and fills and gaps, dropping into a big bass line and syncopations that disrupt the beat and bring the drama. ‘Kush’ is different, taking the pace down with low end, synth hip hop with glassy chords, running over woozy pitch shifting Rhodes chords fed through a layer of crackly gauze.

First HYPERDUB single of 2012
King Britt presents Fhloston Paradigm HYPERDUB - HDB060- March 26th
 Hyperdub start the year of single releases off with a brilliant, and subtle curveball courtesy of Philly’s finest; King Britt in his new guise as Fhloston Paradigm.
Built from drum machines, analog keyboards and 303’s, and edited in the computer, these 3 lean and mean tracks, have an unadorned feeling that build on Hyperdub’s love for old John Carpenter style electronics, combined with Dr Patrick Gleason’s ear for the abstract, and bouncy drum machine syncopation that sounds like they’re aiming for an alternative present where analogue synths are still king.
Chasing Rainbows, is first off, with a dark tone that reminds of the opening theme to the film ‘Escape from New York, a wavering 303 bassline and tough kicks and snares giving away to heavy, moody chords.
The Chase works rough rolling drum machine beats that stutter and build into strange fills that threaten to stop the track dead if it wasn’t for the strange stumbling bassline and gently building acid line that resolve into a super funky melodic duel with some stuttering synth strings.   
Liloos Seduction is intense, quiet and abstract; a flickering 303 bass line is joined by barely there drums and reflective keys, everything shimmering in a dramatic fashion with gentle echoes giving the track a deep, watery sense of perspective as each part gently and gracefully builds and twists into a tender and effecting melody.
