Kode9, born in Glasgow, Scotland, is a renowned artist and DJ. With a passion for music from an early age, he began his DJing career at 16, blending various genres such as reggae, breaks, hip hop, jazz, funk and house. As the breakbeat hardcore, jungle and drum’n’bass scenes emerged in the 90s, Kode9 embraced these styles and has been captivating audiences with his infectious beats ever since.
Having performed across the UK during the 90s and making his way to London in 1997, Kode9 became deeply influenced by the darker strains of the emerging 2step garage scene. Today, he not only continues to mesmerize crowds with his energetic sets but also runs *Hyperdub*, a highly regarded record label.
If you enjoy artists like Ikonika, Pinch or Zomby among others from this genre-defying musical landscape that blends elements of dubstep with experimental sounds and bass-heavy rhythms then you are sure to appreciate Kode9's unique style.
