Cat.# HOTF9 etched in the runout.
Considered by many as "the" "underground crossover" track of 2009, "Hyph Mngo" is a perfect example of a milestone track single-handedly embodying the evolution of a whole musical genre,
in this case a pleasantly dramatic and "feminine" new direction for dubstep, a genre until then more hailed as "masculine", "urban" and "technical" in its aesthetics and sound approach.
This beautiful sonic UFO plays around a melodic synth line sweetly building the tension up and down, climaxing in this very hooky female cut-up vocals perfectly sound-treated resulting in a both warm and otherwordly intensity.
It was the most representative tune of a whole trend of "hybrid" dubstep-based songs, including Deadboy's "If U Want Me" or Darkstar's "Aidy Girl Is A Computer", that gave the genre a more "pop" and "feminine" touch
