Earlier today, Hyperdub label boss Kode9 wrote the following on his personal Twitter account:
“I would just like to send my love and gratitude to Darkstar and wish them the best possible future on Warp Records.”
Having just spoken to Hyperdub, they’ve confirmed the news. Darkstar, who have been one of the label’s key acts since early single ‘Need You’, and released one of its most well-received records in last year’s album, North, have signed to veteran electronic label Warp Records – presumably for at least a one album deal. We imagine that more details of the news will emerge in the near future.
