Kode9 is a London-based Scotsman, philosophy professor, dubstep/grime producer, and owner of Hyperdub, one of the most innovative record labels in the world. From this label we get the hero of our time, Burial (or Saint Burial), and the madman of our time, the Spaceape—both were discovered by Kode9, the father of hauntology, a kind of thinking and feeling that emerged after the optimism of the '90s crashed against the wall of Bush's '00s. Kode9's beats soundtrack a world that is dead but haunted by the living. (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000. 9 pm, $12, 21+.)
