Published Jun 12, 2014Unsettling UK beatmaker Kevin Martin hasn't released an album as the Bug since 2009's London Zoo, but following last year's Filthy EP, he's now detailed his project's next full-length. Angels & Devils will be out on August 26 through Ninja Tune.
It features a guest on nearly every track, with contributors including Death Grips, Justin Broadrick (of Godflesh/Jesu), Liz Harris (of Grouper), copeland (formerly of Hype Williams), Gonjasufi, Flowdan and more.
The album reportedly draws influence from London Zoo while simultaneously "[escaping] the London cage," offering a new perspective from Martin's new home in Berlin. It's split into two distinct sides: Angels on one side and Devils on the flip. A press release describes Angels as "a collection of heady, dubbed out cinematic blissfulness with a lurking darkness before giving way to devils."
Scroll past the tracklist to listen to the Gonjasufi-assisted "Save Me" and the Death Grips-featuring "Fuck a Bitch." Also below, hear the previously released "Dirty."
The album is available to pre-order in various formats right here.
