The Bug feat. Dis Fig, Flowdan & Logan - Live at Le Guess Who? 2022
The Bug performed live as one of the closing acts of Le Guess Who? 2022, accompanied on stage by MC's Dis Fig, Flowdan and Logan to bring the buzzing energy found on The Bug's record to life. Relive part of the performance with our concert film below, featuring Fat Mac and Dirty/I Luv You (Freestyle) feat. Flowdan, Take feat. Dis Fig and Judgement Time feat. Logan.
As a defiant experimentalist ceaselessly exploring sonic extremities, contrasts and frictional collisions, The Bug aka Kevin Richard Martin's obsession with beats, bass, body horror, and dub technology has been mirrored throughout his turbulent, mutating career. From seismic low end resonations, to brutal noise detonations, via drone excavations, and the cavernous pulsations of dancehall, his discography is a fusion of physical assault, cerebral electrification and the deepest, most deadly dub. The Bug’s relentless appetite for re-invention and confrontation has resulted in some of the most satisfying records and collaborations of the past twenty years.
