Decadubs 5 is a vinyl-only double-pack companion to 'Hyperdub 10.4', the fourth and final CD in Hyperdub's series of collections throughout 2014 to mark the label's first decade in existence.
Both Decadubs 5 and its full-length parental set explore the club spaces opened up by house, garage and techno, as viewed through Hyperdub's singular filters.
Side 1 leads out with Lambeth, a long awaited previously unreleased track by Burial, with an unusually triumphant and - compared to recent extended montages - relatively direct 2step feel.
Side 3 opens with the fathoms-deep bubbling bass and synth washes of DVA's extremely psychedelic Monophonic Nightmare, then Dorian Concept turns in a quirky remix of Martyn's classic Mega Drive Generation, which originally appeared on Hyperdub's fifth anniversary compilation in 2009.
Side 4 reveals another classic from the vaults in the shape of Cooly G's skeletal house cut Him Da Biz, and the EP comes to a close with energy levels turned up on Funkystepz's Vice Versa, a track much in demand since it first appeared on Kode9's Rinse 22 mix compilation from 2013
