This is one Bug you don't want to squash or call the exterminator on!
With the release of his latest album on the horizon, legendary London producer The Bug, aka Kevin Martin, has announced his North American tour. The Bug will be joined throughout the tour by longtime Roll Deep collaborators Manga and Flowdan.
The tour will follow the release of Angels & Devils, The Bug's first record in six years and the follow-up to 2008's London Zoo. The album is out now and it explores the duality between light and dark, good and evil and life and death.
Joining Kevin on the record are a host of collaborators, including Death Grips, Liz Harris (of Grouper), Gonjasufi, Justin Broadrick (Godflesh/Jesu), copeland (Hype Williams), Flowdan, Miss Red, Manga and Warrior Queen.
As part of the album presentation, two tracks which simultaneously present the duality and contradiction that Angels & Devils explores are packaged together. Kicking off with the Liz-Harris-of-Grouper-voiced "Void," the tone is set for the heady/heavy dubbed out Angels side of the equation, while the flip-side assault of "Function," with Roll Deep's Manga, brings The Bug's grime/ragga bass beat downs back into play as a Devil focus.
Both tracks can be heard below.
Listen to "Void/Function" below.
