Kode9 – Nothing LP
‘Nothing’ is Kode9’s first solo album, after Memories of the Future (2006) and Black Sun (2012) which were both made with The Spaceape, long time friend and collaborator who died in 2014 after a prolonged battle with cancer.
‘Nothing’ is obsessed with zeros. The album throws horror soundtracks, sampled library records, and j-pop into a no mans land between grime, early dubstep and Chicago footwork.
Mostly instrumental, it zigzags between hypnotic, downcast loops, growling drones, jagged cut-ups of androids gone haywire, threaded through twitchy, transatlantic rhythms and sub-bass inaudible through your laptop speakers.
In 2016, in collaboration with simulation artist Lawrence Lek, Kode9 will tour a live a/v set which revolves around an evacuated, fully automated, luxury hotel known as ‘The Notel’.
The album will be available on CD / Digital and Special Edition 2 X LP, worldwide. Due on 6th November.
