Video: The Bug "Dirty"
- Words: Tim Gentles
Shapeshifting London musician/producer Kevin Martin has returned to his solo moniker, The Bug, for his upcoming Filthy EP, set to drop via Ninja Tune next week. The record's biggest single, "Dirty" features vocals from veteran UK MC Flowdan, whose aggressive flow adds a menacing edge to the already sinister cut of dub-infused grime. The video for the tune is similarly bleak, alternating between black-and-white shots of council estates, digital mulch, and blurry shots of the vocalist. Allegedly foreshadowing The Bug's upcoming Angels & Devils LP, Filthy will see release in digital and 2x10" vinyl formats on August 12.
