Hype Williams' Dean Blunt releases solo tape

Limited to 100 copies, 'Jill Scott Herring OST' is out now.

Almost universally popular among our tiny corner of the world is Berlin (ex Dalston) art-music duo Hype Williams, who make these super odd dub jams that sum up everything loveable about London, memory and drugs, seriously.

The proper album ‘One Nation’ [Hippos In Tanks] is probably my personal favourite full-length of the year, but those HW obsessives nervous that an increasingly focussed release schedule would dent their pattern of flooding the marketplace with tiny-run tapes and side-projects should be further calmed by the news that one half, Dean Blunt, is releasing a 100-edition tape called ‘Jill Scott Herring OST on Trilogy Tapes, the label of Hyperdub / Honest Jon’s graphic designer Will Bankhead. label of It’s the latest in a line of solo releases, with Inga Coupland self-releasing a white label, and the last track they sent us labelled “Dean Blunt & Inga Coupland”.
