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.      
  • CD (CR09-CD)

The Bug
Box ft. D Double E / Iceman ft. Riko Dan


  • Vinyl 12" (ZEN12435)

The Bug
Bad / Get Out The Way

New material from The Bug! This double A-side features Kevin Martin working with two of his most notorious MC collaborators: regular voice Flowdan on Bad and Killa P on Get Out The Way, appearing on a Bug tune for the first time since Skeng. Heavyweight grimey business with really potent rhythmic weight. Plus ‘Riddim’ versions of each track. 12” single.

Kiki Hitomi
Karma No Kusari

This is officially being labeled as a Reggae album. Karma No Kusari by Kiki Hitomi could however fit into a myriad of genre - is it sweet candy pop, with songs such as Pink No Kimono having a sickly-sweet feeling. How about psychedelic pop, especially prevalent in the title track which is a distorted collection of sound. Check this one out and decide for yourself.

Roger Robinson
Dog Heart City

Roger Robinson, the authoritative vocal intoner at the core of Kevin Martin’s project King Midas Sound, here releases a powerful solo record. Dog Heart City is all about the harsh lives lived by London’s working class, with Robinson’s dub poetry sitting atop potent rolling rhythms. Very strong stuff. Out on Jahtari.

King Midas Sound / Fennesz
Edition 1

Real heavyweight collaboration right here! King Midas Sound, Kevin Martin’s vehicle for enormous bass and dark soulful songs, join up with none other than Fennesz, the wizard of electronically processed guitar haze. The resultant Edition 1 is a suitably weighty and textured trip, presented with a bonus disc / download of instrumental versions. On Ninja Tune.

King Midas Sound / Fennesz
Edition 1 (Instrumentals)

King Midas Sound and Fennesz delighted many fans of experimental music with their recent surprise collaboration on Edition 1. Now we have the instrumental versions. It seems almost a shame to strip away the wonderful vocals of Kiki Hitomi and Roger Robinson, but this does allow the weighty soundscapes to stand out all the more. Heavyweight LP on Ninja Tune.
