Repress of Kode9 & The Spaceape's 2006 debut album, including previously unreleased extra track "Stalker (alt edit)".

Eight years on from its original CD release, and to celebrate Hyperdub's 10th birthday, the first album from Kode9 & The Spaceape finally reaches vinyl in a Record Store Day special, featuring a previously unreleased version of 'Stalker' (the original of which featured on the very first Hyperdub 10"), cut into transparent coloured vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.

'Memories Of The Future' now features 15 dread-filled flashbacks and flash-forwards from a world trembling in an echology of fear, where the future has collapsed in on the present and Mothership Earth is en route to nowhere.

The album brings together a retuned version of the duo's long sought after 2004 debut single 'Sine Of The Dub', with other minor classics such as 'Kingstown', 'Backward' and '9 Samurai', and 11 further doses of uneasy listening.

Time-scrambling dubtronic poet Spaceape circulates around the lyrical black hole he calls home with tales of cultural addiction, urban paralysis, bioterror, smouldering flesh and psycho-affective meltdown, yet manages to conjure up a strange joy in these dystopian hallucinations as his dark dictations and demented refrains form the consistent thread through Kode9's loping rhythms, deranged melodies and walls of muffled, driving sub-bass.

'Memories Of The Future' is a claustrophobic cold shiver of astrodancehall, 15 synthetic shanties for a meteor-storm-battered spaceship.
