Time for a Bug Update. Been too long.
You all got the Jah War 12″, right? And you need something that can actually sit next to it in your record shelves – without melting?
First heard when Loefah unleashed it at JME’s birthday bash at FWD in May. Never forgotten since.
Is out at last on Hyperdub 12″. Proper.
Check it. Featuring Flowdan and Killa P. Total carnage. Menace with a smile on its face. So completely bleak that the brief aside about “Sodomite” is subsumed under a torrent of totally sinister misanthropy.
With Kode9 mix on the flip.
That’s not all, neither. “Poison Dart” will follow shortly on Ninja Tune. Warrior Queen! South Rakkas remix! Rumours of another vocal cut!

And the less abrasive/more blissful/just as intense King Midas Sound side-project, soon come on Hyperdub also. In fact, while we’re at it, props to Hyperdub full stop. They’ve also released a record featuring veteran UK soundsystem vocalist Errol Bellot, last seen in action with Jah Tubbys, Unity Sound etc.
In the meantime check out the lengthy interview with Bug man Kevin Martin on the Boomnoise & Pokes show on Sub FM – you might be surprised to hear who he’s been remixing recently. There is an archived mp3 of the show here. Good to see something from the dubstep massif which focuses on the people. Still not convinched about 90% of the music though :p
Here endeth The Bug update. Invest.
