The Bug Shares Two New Tracks from 'Angels & Devils' Album
In 2008 Kevin Martin unleashed the psychological sonic warfare that was London Zoo on the world. A record that at the time perfectly encapsulated the state of decay of London and one that arguably marked the end of the first wave of dub-step (in so much as London Zoo was never really easily categorized). The time has now come for the now Berlin based Bug to follow up that statement to the world with his forthcoming full length Angels & Devils.
As part of the album presentation as split into two distinct themes under a single banner, the two tracks which simultaneously present the duality and contradiction that Angels & Devils explores are packaged together here. Kicking off with the Liz Harris (of Grouper) voiced "Void" the tone is set for the heady/heavy dubbed out Angels side of the equation, while the flip-side assault of "Function" (with Roll Deep's Manga) brings The Bug's grime/ragga bass beat downs back into play as a Devil focus.
Featuring Liz Harris (of Grouper), copeland, Miss Red, Gonjasufi, Flowdan, Manga, Death Grips, and Warrior Queen, Angels & Devils is a battle between utopian and dystopian. Exploring the fringes and the negative space between the two. Both a year zero and a continuation/expanding of what has been touched on before.
Angels & Devils released 25 August 2014 on 2LP, CD and download -
