Kode9, The Jackpot / Rona City Blues
Kode9 is back in the game with ‘The Jackpot’.
Apart from remixes for Mr. Fingers, Burial and the video game music project, Diggin in the Carts, and a track ‘Cell3’ from 2019s compilation with Adult Swim, this release is his first proper solo release since the 2015 album ‘Nothing’, and first solo 12” since 2013,
This 2 tracker features a couple of speedy little rollers, the A-side, a toxic zigzagger named after William Gibson’s depiction of the multi-causal meltdown of the 21st century, and a reprieve on the B-side, ‘Rona City Blues’, with its lush pads, stuttering synth melody and coasting drums.
The first of several Kode9 releases for 2021, the transparent vinyl comes housed in yellow PVC sleeve with 3 holographic stickers of the 3rd Ear Cat.
