The third instalment of Hyperdub's expansive tenth anniversary series is probably the most surprising volume yet. Having already celebrated their roster's dancefloor credentials and song writing skills, HYperdub 10.3 suggests the UK operation has plenty of artists capable of crafting ambient, experimental electronics. In practice, that means two discs of woozy, dreamy, sparse and occasionally melancholic beatless fare - all drifting synths, dusty textures and far-sighted electronics. While you'd expect Dean Blunt , The Bug or Burial to produce quality ambience (the latter's "Night Bus" being a compilation highlight), it's more of a surprise to find pitch-perfect contributions from Darkstar, Kode9 (the creept "Pink Sham Pain Down The Drain") and Cooly G, whose "Trying" is a comforting wash of spacey chords, ricocheting hits and fluttering vocal samples.
