'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 dropping some thunderous bass and skittering snares while Kiki Hitomi sings the chorus in her silky, dreamy style while Danny Brown drops his X-rated, wild lyrics. He has some pretty darn funny lines too.
Regular Bug Collaborator Flowdan rides the rhythm on 'Dirty' in his trademark aggressive style. His lyrics here make me chuckle too expressing his disgust at how expensive things are and his disdain for fast food "There ain't no burger in king" He also takes the opportunity to big up the Funktion One soundsystem.
My personal favourite of the set is 'Kill Them' featuring the one and only Daddy Freddy who proclaims war on all sound system. He's on devastating form here and would have rival soundsystems shitting their pants in fear. How can you clash against The Bug and Daddy Freddy??? Soundbwoy burial guaranteed.
Flowdan makes another appearance on ‘Louder’ pleading for more volume. He's on superior form here to the slightly cartoonish moments of 'Dirty' and The Bug of Course fires up a brutal and cavernous rhythm for the ride. Pure crushing electric dancehall magic as always from Kevin Martin and his freaky MC crew.
