about

In late 2017 Hyperdub released ‘Diggin in the Carts’, a compilation put together by Nick Dwyer and Kode9 of pioneering and rare Japanese video game music from the 80s and 90s. Since then, from Sonar Festival in Barcelona to Liquid Rooms in Tokyo, Kode9 has been touring a live a/v set of remixes from that album, in collaboration with visuals from anime legend Koji Morimoto who also designed the artwork for the original compilation.

Finally, on this first Kode9 EP for several years, a handful of these remixes see the light of day. 9 rivets his 80/160bpm rhythms onto these classic 8bit and 16bit melodies, re-animating the Steve Reichian arpeggios of Soshi Hosoi, the grime-like horn fanfares of Yuzo Koshiro, the sour pads of Koichi Ishaibashi and pitching Tadahiro Nitta down into a slow building, frantic low end grind.
