Steve Bug Collaboratory
- Words: Chris Sabbath
- Label: Poker Flat
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
Hot on the heels of a recent singles compilation, house legend Steve Bug unleashes yet another soon-to-be-classic on his Poker Flat imprint in Collaboratory—an album that lives up to its title and finds Bug building one solid alliance after another alongside Paris the Black Fu of Detroit Grand Pubahs, Cassy and Clé of Märtini Brös., Donnacha Costello, and Simon Flower. Bug’s pairing with singer Virginia on the track “Trust in Me” has personally triggered way too many carnal cravings for a sweat-soaked romp with the latter, as it sloshes a thick, jellied coat of dub-house over a batter of funk-charged rhythms and slow, pulsating beats. Here’s to more of those from Bug in the future.
