Kevin Martin will be performing as The Bug at Supersonic Festival 2012, joined by the ‘world’s fastest rapper’ and founder of Raggamuffin hip hop Daddy Freddy and Flow Dan (co-founder of UK Grime collective Roll Deep).
X-1 Underdog Mix is also on the first Solid Steel Mix release "Now, Listen!" by DJ Food & DK. This release was the first experience I had of Kmart and JK Flesh, before eventually finding Techno Animal, Godflesh etc. Funny how life works, no?
I've got just about every release of the Broadrick/Martin project and I have to say that it's both stunning and sometimes underwhelming. If I was to list a favorite cut, it would have to be "New Breed of Rat," probably one of the few cases where something hip-hop could be described as art, very apocalyptic, but impressive. The first album is great dub-inflected shit, but some of it hasn't aged well over time. The mixes on the Electric Ladyland series with MP were some of the very best, incredible dub cuts.
