    It’s the surge of creativity from the US that’s making for delicious new music indeed.

    Taking touchstones from familiar genres and refiguring them into something completely new, it's like a microcosm of the label as a whole.

    Over ten short years, Hyperdub has managed to cultivate itself a reputation for quality with such style and consistency that it is difficult to think of another UK independent label that commands such a universal level of respect from devotees of its genre. Hyperdub 10.1 is predictably solid evidence of this.

    The new-stuff disc offers few hints as to where the label is headed next, which is unsurprising, but the variety on display is only matched by the quality of the tunes themselves.

    Disc One harbours new material, and the second some of their gems from the last few years; the quality is generally very high and there is much creativity, leaving the mind racing to catch up.

    From years six through ten, Hyperdub has remained as reliable and forward-thinking as it was during its first five years.

    Most of these 33 tracks are uptempo bolts of energy.

    Hyperdub's decision to keep the material on Hyperdub 10.1 fresh and topical may take away from the commemorative feel of the comp, but the pure excitement the label's latest incites deserves nothing less than celebration.
