For years, Steve Goodman has been molding the sound of the underground. Having discovered dance music and DJing in his native Scotland, Goodman headed south where he became entranced by jungle’s speed and sampling aesthetic. He combined these musical interests with academia, kicking off a dual career that would last till the early 2010s. But it was the offshoots of UK garage and 2-step – dubstep and grime – that put him on the map in the early 2000s as Kode9, a DJ, producer and driving force behind the Hyperdub label.
