Kode9 to Deliver First Album in Seven Years

Kode9 will release a new album via his Hyperdub label.

Escapology is the British producer’s first album since 2015’s Nothing.

It’s a more club-focused configuration of Astro-Darien, a work of “sonic fiction” that will be released in October on Hyperdub sub-label Flatlines. Across 15 tracks, Kode9 reshapes the soundtrack’s “tense, off-world atmospheres” into slices of high definition, asymmetric club rhythms, touching on footwork, drill, and dubstep.

The Astro-Darien universe surfaced last year as a two-week audio-visual installation on the main dancefloor at club space Corsica Studios in south London and as a multi-speaker performance at the INA-GRM in Paris

The artwork for both Escapology and Astro-Darien was produced by Kode9’s long-time collaborators Lawrence Lek and Optigram.

In 2021, Kode9 released The Jackpot / Rona City Blues , his first solo EP in six years.

Astro-Darien will be the second release on Flatlines following the late Mark Fisher and Justin Barton’s audio essay, On Vanishing Land, in 2019.
