Kode9, Ryan Organ, Lincolnup, Ben Tactic 

When: Wed., April 13, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10
After celebrating the fifth anniversary of his influential London-based Hyperdub record label and publishing Sonic Warfare, a scholarly work about how sound and sonic environments affect individuals and society, Kode9 (Steve Goodman) is finally releasing a new album. Black Sun is a departure from previous work, particularly in the sense that it is not nearly as bass driven. This sounds a little odd considering Goodman is credited with popularizing a deeper, darker side of dubstep, a genre that has come to rely almost entirely on the low end of the frequency spectrum. Goodman has lightened things up a bit with shiny synthesizer work, the addition of a female vocalist, and a new take on long-time collaborator the Spaceape's vocals (think more hiphop, less evil static drone). It's exactly the kind of inventive forward motion one would expect from the man who launched Burial's career. AVA HEGEDUS
