Artist: HYPE WILLIAMS
Title: S/T
Format: 12"
Label: Carnivals
Country: UK
Price: $22.00
"The first full length record from Hype Williams. Through 35 minutes, Blunt and Copeland transmit their vision of a self contained plane, seamed by an index of long distance keyboard glaze, rent-a-car night coasters through to programmed and screwed constructs of songs, musical absurdities and free, lifted improv jams. Luckily, the majority of these descriptive translations probably fall short: At points it sounds rewardingly indescribable and yet as a full length statement, fully realised and formed. Embracing the crud and sheen of mainstream components and trading pound for pound with no-zone freedom. "All because the camels love Bubble Kush." Packaged in the starkly minimal and perfectly accompanying artwork of Ed Lehan. 300 copies." -Carnivals

Title: Find Out What Happens When People Stop Being Polite...
Format: LP
Label: Destijl
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"...And Start Gettin Reel. "Hype Williams may or may not consist of two people named D. Blunt and Inga Copeland, it may or may not still be part of an 18 year relay project thought up by a lady named Denna Frances Glass. Lately there has also been rumor that it is the side project of singer Joss Stone (she evidently financed the making of it). Either way, when asked for a statement concerning Find Out What Happens When People Stop Being Polite, And Start Gettin Reel, weve been informed via email from Inga Copeland only these words: ritolin (sic) and rama lama 555 (sic)." -Destijl

Title: Han Dynasty 1
Format: 7"
Label: Destijl
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"HYPE WILLIAMS is an eighteen-year "relay project" conceived in 2005 by husband and wife motivational speakers FATHER RONNIE KRAYOLA and DENNA FRANCES GLASS. Every three years it gets passed on to someone else to "look after." Recordings from the first three years were stuffed into a pinata and will be released at the conclusion of the project. In May 2008 it was passed on to a heckler called ROY BUNDY (PARADISE SISTERS) who, along with KAREN GLASS and BAHAAMA MOUTCHAKA (ARC M) have released numerous CDRs through the Ceylan Projects gallery in London. They have a large rotating cast of deviants they play with live under the moniker BO KHAT ETERNAL TROOF FAMILY BAND." -Destijl

Title: One Nation
Format: LP
Label: Hippos In Tanks
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"What do we actually know about HYPE WILLIAMS? An obscure, lo-fi form of dub-inflected half-pop as much akin to the post-industrial funk of 23 Skidoo and early Cabaret Voltaire as the scratchy psych of The Skaters et al. Music which fascinates largely because of its refusal to commit"-The Wire. You have heard One Nation before. You remember hearing "Businessline" in the waiting room at your trustee-in-bankruptcys office during the OPEC oil crisis. "Your Girl Smells Chung When She Wears Dior" was playing on your boombox when you finally lost your virginity at the age of 25. you first heard "Warlord" at a K-Hole afterparty somewhere in Bavaria. Or was it Detroit? "Ital" was the music you heard during your private audience with Emperor Selassie. Or was Ghaddafi? "Unfaithful" is the sound of your childrens memories of suburban decay. One Nation is the sound that desaturated blue/grey/pink carpets and venetian blinds and ceiling tiles with tiny holes and the linering smell of perfume and nicotine make when you dream about the world you used to live in. One Nation has been mastered at the legendary Dubplates & Mastering in Germany, and has been imprinted onto 180-gram all white vinyl, with hand numbering. Very limited release of 1,000 copies." -Hippos In Tanks.

Title: Kelly Price W8 Gain Vol. II
Format: 12"
Label: Hyperdub
Country: UK
Price: $11.00
"Kelly Price W8 Gain Vol.II EP is the four track Hyperdub debut from Hype Williams, a group with two core members who have spawned a steadily growing labyrinth of hermetic, audio/visual surrealism, and have attracted the attention of many inquisitive and occasionally confused eyes and ears. Hype Williams hazy aesthetic gives these tracks an opiated glow from the get go. Rise Up buries Inga Copelands soft untrained vocal in slow kicks and the most warm, ecstatic chords this side of early New Jersey Garage. The rough dub feel and hand punched drums of Boss Man are matched with cloud-like Detroit chords and smudged melodies that sound like theyre borrowed off a lost Wiley Sino-Grime classic." - Hyperdub.

Title: Do Roids and Kill Erything
Format: 7"
Label: Second Layer
Country: UK
Price: $12.00
"New 3 track EP from Hype Williams. Ooovrrr melts Drakes vocals down to a syrupy slur and lays over a snappy lo-fi beat, heavy on the 1s and 3s, as some wavering synths play off each other in a haze. Rescue Dawn III drags an early 90s jungle bassline down to a snails pace. A super melted vocal refrain, a VHS quality synth line and hiss-drenched bass form a something that could loosely be referred to as dub. The b-side is an alternate take on Sades The Sweetest Taboo – a beautiful version envisioned through the heroin haze that the lyrics evoke. No group is absorbing and filtering pop culture quite like Hype Williams. A truly unique project. Features artwork by Ed Lehan. Limited edition of 500 copies." -Second Layer.
