The fact that Cuttooth hails from my home city, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, is just a happy coincidence. If I were the type to be swayed by such a petty coincidence these pages would be riddled with hard house and folk music.
Kevin “The Bug” Martin has been a busy boy recently with the new King Midas Sound single ‘Lost’ and now a new EP under his Bug alias. The new EP, entitled ‘The Infected’, ia out on Ninja Tune on November 22nd.
The new release is a four track EP featuring the vocal talents of Roots Manuva and KMS’s Hitomi, as well as a remix from Autechre and Scratcha DVA each. You can preorder your copy from Ninja Tune here.
Seriously, the Ninja Tune output has been absolutely stellar recently and the perfect way to celebrate their 20th anniversary, with most of the last month of XLR8R’s podcasts being produced by artists on their roster. That coupled with its history (Mr. Scruff, Roots Manuva, Anti-Pop Consortium, DJ Food, Coldcut, Toddla T, etc.) make it an impossible label to dislike. Go here to check out the podcasts.
London natives King Midas Sound are to release their new single on Kode9,‘s imprint Hyperdub. The release, which XLR8R described as “soulful and lovelorn”, comes out on September 7. The b-side is the equally haunting b-side ‘Frequencies’.
King Midas Sound is a dubstep project of Kevin “The Bug” Martin and London & Trinidad poet Roger Robinson featuring vocalist Hitomi. Having released their first 12″ release ‘Cool Out’ and debut album ‘Waiting For You’ Hyperdub.
Under this guise Martin’s music takes on a more Bristol-inspired sound as the ragga element takes a backseat. It’s a more thoughtful endeavour and certainly one worth checking out for those lazy summer days in the park with cans of fizzy whatnot.
