Collectively producing since 1998, they’ve had over 50 releases on various high profile Drum & Bass, Hardcore and Dubstep labels such as Rob Playford’s Moving Shadow, Dieselboy’s Human, The Outside Agency’s Genosha 175 and Excision’s Rottun. Apart from their busy production schedule, they’re playing out constantly. 2010 saw them DJ in 18 countries.
Algorythm Recordings, their own label, was launched in 2005 and include releases from artists such as Current Value, Limewax, SPL, T.Z.A, The Panacea and Donny. The beginning of 2009 saw the launch of their second label, Counterstrike Recordings.
Having been at the heart of the Drum n Bass uprising in our fine Republic of South Africa, Hyphen has been dosing the South African D&B congregation for years. Every strain of venomous beat that tickles his fancy is slotted into the sets that he spins at more parties and festivals than your blackouts would allow you to remember.
The D&B faithful have grown to know and trust this selekta who’s been hosting the 89.5 fm Bush Radio Drum n Bass show since 2002, which continues to be the benchmark for Drum n Bass culture on the airwaves in SA today. It is, of course, well documented that talk is cheap, and Hyphen has no problem backing it up when he fills his resident spot at the longest running and consistently packed Drum n Bass party in the country ‘Homegrown’ in his native Cape Town on the first Saturday of every month. Through ‘Homegrown’ and his numerous travels, he has managed to rub shoulders with the likes of Counterstrike, Dieselboy, Pendulum, Break, Raiden and other such stalwarts of the scene.
Now held in high regard for his spine-bending D&B and dubstep sets alike, Hyphen is more than just a DJ. He’s making his own material, having released his first vinyl offering “Visions” alongside SFR on the world-renowned European label Zombie Recordings, a claim that not many a Saffer producer can make. You can also find his track “Tribes” on the African Dope compilation ‘Cape Of Good Dope 2’, and you can feel free to scream when you watch him play.
