Hyperdub to launch spoken word sub-label Flatlines

Hyperdub is launching a new sub-label called Flatlines.

The first release on the new spoken word label will be an audio essay by Justin Barton and the late Mark Fisher. Entitled On Vanishing Land, the soundscape was born from the label’s experiments with installations and music at its monthly Ø parties at Corsica Studios. The release will land on 26 July.

The audio essay has been designed to evoke “a walk along the Suffolk coastline in 2006, from Felixstowe container port… to the Anglo-Saxon burial ground at Sutton Hoo.” The LP will feature artwork by Fisher and sleeve notes by Barton.
