Kode9 is back in the game. Apart from remixes for Mr. Fingers, Burial, video game music project ‘Diggin In The Carts’, and the track ‘Cell3’ on 2019’s Hyperdub & Adult Swim compilation, this is his first proper solo release since the 2015 album ‘Nothing’, and first solo 12” since 2013. This two-tracker features a couple of speedy little rollers; A-side ‘The Jackpot’ is a toxic, off-key zigzagger that coils and recoils, while the reprieve comes on B-side ‘Rona City Blues’, with its lush pads, stuttering synth melody and coasting drums. The first of several Kode9 releases for 2021, the transparent 180g vinyl comes housed in a heavyweight see-through yellow PVC sleeve with three holographic stickers of the 3rd Ear Cat, limited to 500 copies.

Untrue was my favorite album in all of existence.
And then Chemz dropped. It's so beautifully haunting, mesmerizing and alluring. It has entranced me and I never want it to let me go. I'm currently on my 25th listen so far. Flac the Ampwave
