Kode9 vibrates parts other DJs can only dream of. His early DJ sets and radio shows helped spread the South London sound internationally in the 2000s and his sets now weave together an unpredictable, bass heavy mix drawing musically from further afield.
Originally from Glasgow, but based in South London since 2000, Kode9 set up the record label Hyperdub in 2004, infamous for unleashing artists such as Burial (and countless others) on the world. He has recorded 2 albums of his own with the late vocalist The Spaceape; Memories of Future (2006) and Black Sun (2010), and a solo album, Nothing (2015). He has compiled 3 DJ mix compilations, Dubstep Allstars vol.3 (Tempa 2006), DJ Kicks (K7 2011) and Rinse 22 (Rinse 2013). Kode9 has also released tracks on Aphex Twin’s Rephlex label, Soul Jazz and Rinse and remixed for Lee Scratch Perry for On U Sound, the Junior Boys for Domino, Battles for Warp, and Dabrye Feat. Doom for Ghostly.
For 5years, he hosted the weekly Fwd>> show on Rinse FM from 2003-2009 and co-hosted the Hyperdub show with Scratcha DVA until 2016. He was one of the rotating DJs at DMZ and Fwd>>, the seminal club nights in London alongside running the monthly club nights Ø at Corsica Studios in South London.
