Infected EP
by The Bug

— Released 15th November 2010

'Infected' is a double 12" vinyl and digital download release, and is a bridge between the acclaimed 'London Zoo' album and The Bug's forthcoming dub battle with legendary producer Adrian Sherwood.

Having emerged with notable critical acclaim for last year's King Midas Sound album 'Waiting For You', Kevin Martin reunites with King Midas Sound vocalist Hitomi for the lead track 'Catch A Fire' and reworks 'Skeng' into a harrowingly sick protest song recalling 80's pop-realist classic 'Gho...

'Infected' is a double 12" vinyl and digital download release, and is a bridge between the acclaimed 'London Zoo' album and The Bug's forthcoming dub battle with legendary producer Adrian Sherwood.

Having emerged with notable critical acclaim for last year's King Midas Sound album 'Waiting For You', Kevin Martin reunites with King Midas Sound vocalist Hitomi for the lead track 'Catch A Fire' and reworks 'Skeng' into a harrowingly sick protest song recalling 80's pop-realist classic 'Ghost Town' by The Specials. 'Catch A Fire' features Justin Broadrick (Jesu/Pale Sketcher, and ex Godflesh), albeit fleetingly, with an ear catching guitar drop in the centre of the tune. This is their first work together since the infamous Techno Animal albums they worked on together... 

Next up Martin utilises the same deep dub styles he pioneered on 'Waiting For You', continuing to probe the genre's new forms further on the stomach churning bass assault of 'Tune In', which features the unmistakeable voice of Roots Manuva riding a mutant inversion of 'Poison Dart'. An MC Martin has long since attempted to hook up with, the killer combo is a match made in urban hell, as Rodney Manuva summons the ghosts of London's urban sprawl to wreak revenge on Babylon's Brotherhood with his verses of astro-lingual voodoo.

The second 12" features remixes personally commisioned by The Bug. Having heard a marathon 12 hour podcast by Warp records electro-accoustic dons Autechre, and noting they had included an early Bug track ('Superbird' from 'Pressure') within that net-radio mix, he then invited them to remix his monster dubstep smash 'Skeng'. He also asked UK Funky's rising star (and Rinse FM's breakfast show host) Scratcha DVA to scramble 'Poison Dart' and ice the 4 track release; having been previously blown away by Scratcha's awesome singles ('New World Order' on DVA Music and 'Natty'/'Ganja' on Hyperdub), The Bug felt that Warrior Queens anthemic threats would be suitably mobilized by DVA's filthy syncopations.
