Biography

Kode9 (born Steve Goodman in Glasgow, Scotland) is a London-based electronic music artist, DJ, and owner of the Hyperdub record label. An MC, The Spaceape, is a frequent collaborator. Initially inspired by drum and bass, he also draws on dub reggae, and is associated with dubstep. He appeared on the Grime compilation on Rephlex and released the full-length album Memories of the Future. Kode9 has a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Warwick and has published a book, Sonic Warfare: Sound, Affect, and the Ecology of Fear

Like many dubstep artists, Kode9 comes from a musical background of oldschool jungle, drum and bass, and 2-step garage; he has mentioned his first encounter with jungle, in Edinburgh, as being “the most important musical event of my life”.[1] Other genres that are common influences in his work include Dub Reggae, Dancehall, and Indian music (such as in the tabla part and toasting on the song “Kingstown”).

A move to Warwick and collaboration with the Cybernetic Culture Research Unit at University of Warwick studying rave culture, cybernetics, postmodernism and afrofuturism later led to a memetic philosophy regarding music, which he has spoken about at length in interviews. In the late nineties, Kode9 moved to London, and established a name as a disk jockey in clubs such as FWD>>.[1]
