The mastermind behind the Hyperdub label, Kode 9 (aka Steve Goodman) is one of the most forward thinking minds in dubstep and beyond. As an artist, he has issued a slew of EPs and two critically acclaimed albums with MC The Spaceape, the 2006 debut Memories of the Future, and 2011’s equally impressive, more politically charged Black Sun. As Hyperdub’s curator-in-chief, he’s launched a string of seminal careers for acts such as Laurel Halo, Jessy Lanza, Ikonika, and the South London enigma Burial.
Mala is one-half of the South London dubstep duo Digital Mystikz. Along with DM member Coki and fellow dubsteppers Loefah and Sgt. Pokes, Mala founded the influential DMZ label, which has since become the main outlet for various productions by the crew and other producers who follow their sound.
