Meanwhile, Goodman has an alternate role as a lecturer at the University Of Warwick. Researching sound and its role in society, he recently published a fascinating book via MIT titled ‘Sonic Warfare: Sound, Affect, and the Ecology of Fear’.
A renowned DJ, Kode9’s own productions have moved beyond dubstep to incorporate techno, UK funky and more. Agreeing to curate a compilation for the DJ Kicks series, the Scottish producer has taken his role seriously.
A superb overview of the British bass scene, Kode9 has confirmed details of the tracklisting. Drawing heavily on his own productions and those released by his label Hyperdub, the compilation contains an exclusive Kode9 track entitled ‘You Don’t Wash’.
Opening with Lone’s ‘Once In A While’ the compilation features Hyperdub signing Ikonika. A female producer, her futuristic soul has taken the bass scene by storm.
