As announced, Hyperdub will release the debut album of Joe Powers (a.k.a Proc Fiskal), titled Insula.

Joe Powers is from Edinburgh, Scotland far outside the network of the grime capital of London. The Highland Mob, his debut EP, landed on Hyperdub last year, opening up his music to open-eared footwork and drum & bass fans as well as the grime crowd. He followed this up with a jungle-inflected EP on Om Unit’s Cosmic Bridge label, called Yes Boss, and will now release his debut album, Insula, which “switches the feel and intention towards a personal, and melodic music with one foot in grime, infused with often comic, often wistful recorded moments from his environment.”
