Berlin-via-UK sound-scrapers Hype Williams get an unusual amount of attention for a couple of weirdos releasing washed-out soundscapes full of dub gurgles, grunts and barely-there vocals. Maybe there’s just something irresistible about their don’t-give-a-fuck attitude, their sounds filtered down through a haze of weed smoke. Whatever the case, bongbeast frontman Dean Blunt is joining his compatriot Inga Copeland in dropping a new solo cassette tape. The Jill Scott Herring OST is limited to 100 copies, so unless you act fast you’ll probably only see it in .zip format. So head over to Will Bankhead’s The Trilogy Tapes and try your luck ordering.
