About this item

The Bug drops double A-side 12”, "Bad" featuring Flowdan and "Get Out The Way" featuring Killa P and Irah (The Bug / Killa P’s first track together since "Skeng") via Ninja Tune. Continuing his style of big hittin’ double headers, which began last year with the D Double E / Riko Dan face-off "Box" / "Iceman", The Bug has invited Flowdan and Killa P & Irah to get grimey on their respective Riddims. Both tracks are already receiving some heavy dubplate slaying, with the likes of Mala, Kahn, Spooky, Pinch and Mumdance all smashing them in their sets. "Bad" has been chosen by Elijah (of Elijah & Skilliam / Butterz) as one of his Grime Tunes Of The Year. The Bug constructed the whole "Bad" riddim from the manipulated layering of a single Soviet drum machine, tweaked and drenched in FX until it rumbled heavily. No other components were used in the making of this backing track. No basslines applied. Vox and beatbox only. As simple and effective as it gets. "Get Out The Way" is the first collaboration The Bug has conducted with Killa P since the mighty "Skeng", with Killa additionally inviting Irah from his Killaz Army crew along for the ride. Built on The Bug’s love of the Junglist / Dillinja inspired Reese bassline, it’s a saw tooth exercise in dancefloor destruction as the two MCs get lethal with the threats and intimidation.
