I'm as Crooked as a Dog's Hind Leg

"You Don't Know What Love Is" - 2000F & J Kamata

So, the seminal dub-step/techno/bad shit crazy label Hyperdub just released a compilation in celebration of their five year anniversary. Bat shit crazy doesn't even start to describe what these tracks are like. Sometimes when I try to explain to people what electronic music is like I throw around themes like music for robots or beats you would hear in space but this Hyperdub compilation pretty much blows those descriptions to pieces. Over the course of twenty some banging tracks Hyperdub once again asks listeners to rethink what electronic/dance/techno music is. These tracks are from a place in time that is impossible to comprehend. Apocalyptic it is not, but dark, for sure. And with more computer animated whistles and swirly sounds then you can shack a stick at this album is well worth the time and investment. God damn the future is going to be awesome. We are all going to be listening to these tracks in our flying cars in no time. Fuck. Yes. Not only are we going to be jamming to this in the future but this track, "You Don't Know What Love Is" will be the song you get down to in your bedroom with your significant other. This is music for robots to make love to.
