Flame 1 (Burial & The Bug)
Fog / Shrine

A new collaboration landing, between night bus mystery man Burial and bass-weight Skeng supremo The Bug! For many fans of the UK bass music scene, this will be the collaboration of their dreams, and these two tracks under their Flame 1 handle do not disappoint in the slightest. These dense, smoky, dubbed out and deeply atmospheric slo-mo steppers come via Pressure, a new label from Kevin Martin himself.

King Midas Sound
Solitude

Sardonically released on Valentine's Day, this is the best one yet from King Midas Sound, once again stripped back to the duo of Kevin Martin (The Bug/Techno Animal) and poet/music-maker Roger Robinson. The tone is icy and bitter, the many narrations consumed by spiteful jealousy in a post-brakeup haze. All the rhythmic pulse of dub has now subsided, a wraith-like presence which blankets Robinson's malice fuelled spoken word.

Zonal
Wrecked

Justin Broadrick (Godflesh/Jesu/JK Flesh) and Kevin Martin (The Bug/King Midas Sound) got together to form Zonal. The pair had previously collaborated as Techno Animal. On Wrecked, Zonal mix bass, dub, noise and drone to make a gargantuan album of slowly corroding, brooding, shady sounds. A match made in heaven; Moor Mother brings lyrical fire to half the cuts.

Flame 2 (Burial and The Bug)
Dive / Rain

Next instalment of dream collaboration between night bus dweller Burial and bass bin enthusiast The Bug as Flame (2). Released on The Bug's Kevin Martin's Pressure imprint, these two bass music heavyweights again collide for two more blurry dubbed out highly atmospheric tracks that are sure not to disappoint fans of either artist.

The Bug
Zim Zim Zim

Kevin Martin’s beloved project The Bug has teamed up with one Burro Banton, a fine and flowing Jamaican DJ. Zim Zim Zim has caused mad drama in live sets, but wasn’t on last album Angels & Devils, so this red 12” is the way to go if you want it. And you do. Etching on the B-side, on Ninja Tune.

The Bug vs Earth
Concrete Desert

This is a total dream-come-true collaboration for fans of pulverizingly heavy music: Dylan ‘Extra Low Frequency Version’ Carson’s Earth project and Kevin ‘Skeng’ Martin’s The Bug, producing together. After two tracks together last year, the pair have now made a full album, and it’s a seething, bristling blast of a listen. The 2LP vinyl edition comes with an exclusive bonus 12” with a JK Flesh remix.

The Bug
Exit

Dub texture dude Kevin Martin returned this year with 'Angels & Devils', comprised of an all-star cast of musicians who helped shape his vision in weird and wonderful ways -- he's been keeping up with the landscape of music since he left and enlisted artists as diverse as Grouper's Liz Harris and Hype Williams' Inga Copeland. This supplementary EP, entitled 'Exit', features some more work from Harris, as well as contributions from Daddy Freddy and Manga.

The Bug
Angels & Devils

Plenty of big-name collaborators on The Bug's latest, 'Angels & Devils'. Billed as a "battle between utopian and dystopian" (but definitely not a "concept album", oh no) you get Liz Harris (Grouper), Warrior Queen, Gonjasufi, Miss Red, Death Grips, Manga (Roll Deep), Copeland and Flowdan for your money. Pulling together "the fringes of all outsider music into a common voice" according to the press release, the 'Angels' side is described as "the heady/heavy dubbed out Angels side of the equation" whilst 'Devils' "brings The Bug's grime/ragga bass beat downs back into play". Should be interesting!

The Bug
London Zoo

Kevin Martin has been involved in a few projects in his time. Let's see...there's Techno Animal, God and King Midas Sound to name but three. But perhaps when the dust settles he'll be best remembered for The Bug  - his schizoid bass bin ruining distorto dancehall project. London Zoo is a menacing triple album which will make you dance like an idiot whilst fearing for your ears at the same time.
