Hype Williams – a duo of artist-musicians surrounded by a few others born in London, based in Berlin – play sludgy music vaguely related to dub and hypnogogic pop and made one of the year’s best records, ‘One Nation’, out on Hippos In Tanks. Now they’re working with Hyperdub, who will be releasing the ‘Kelly Price w8 gain ep vol II’ on vinyl on the July 4th. We’ve zapped through it a couple of times, and we can report that it is very, very good – more deliberate and even more delicate than anything they’ve done, it is still infused with that combination of romanticism, melody and wit that made ‘One Nation’ such an astounding record.
