    Profilic UK underground music label Hyperdub have since their inception in 2004 kept pushing the boundaries of electronic music. Helmed by label boss Kode9, they are one of the founders of dubstep, later branching out into all the more experimental club sounds.

    Hyperdub singles mostly use the same layout, dating back to their first release, Kode9 + Daddi Gee’s ‎ Sign Of The Dub/Stalker. The iconic logotype shares the 12″ space with all but the essential release information set in Futura Condensed. Each release is then given a unique two-color scheme, setting the mood for the release.

    During certain periods, Futura made way for first an unidentifed sci-fi typeface and later FB Agency, but it seems like they keep falling back to this trusty German friend.
