Flame 1 (Burial & The Bug)
Fog / Shrine
If you’ve been living on another planet for the past month or so, it’s probably worth telling you that Flame 1 is a collaboration between Kevin Martin aka The Bug and Will Bevan aka Burial. This record is the first release on Martin’s newly minted label Pressure.
'Freakshow' is an apt title for the opening cut on this double 10" set. When I first heard this tune I wasn't so sure about it, it sounded kinda chaotic and messy but Danny Brown is pretty intense so it took a couple listens to get my head round it. The Bug is in usual savage form dr...view item
This redder than red 12” fills in a blank from Angels & Devils in the form of ‘Zim Zim Zim’, a pretty dangerous track that’s like being socked in the face by the biggest bug ever.

Waaaah! Also, you get the dubz, without the vocals....view item
‘Angels & Devils’ is the fourth album from Kevin Martin as The Bug. Once again he’s assembled a stellar cast of vocalists to contribute to, and complete his vision.
It could be said that this record is sorta split into two halves. An Angels half a...view item
Funny. Not only Leila comes back to top my Summer then my fave bassbin basher Kevin Martin muscles in on the Dangerous Brian appeasing act (an act brought in by my beleaguered gaffer who really could do without me stamping round the office shouting obscenities every day!)
Yes, welcome to The Bug's London Zoo, the gates have been semtexed...view item
