The Bug’s ‘Bad’ / ‘Get Out The Way’ single out Dec.8 on Ninjatune

Continuing his style of big hittin’ double headers – begun 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. ‘Get Out The Way’ is the first collab 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.

‘Bad ft. Flowdan’ premiered via Complex and was picked up by ClashThe Quietus, Pop Matters, and XLR8R amongst other notable sites. Both tracks are already receiving some heavy dubplate slayin’, with the likes of Mala, Kahn, Spooky, Pinch and Mumdance all smashing them in their sets. ‘Bad’ has already been chosen by Elijah (of Elijah & Skilliam / Butterz) as one of his Grime tunes of the year, is in Mixmag’s Essential Low-End Spotify playlist, BBC1 Xtra shows from Logan Sama and MistaJam, and was even Tweeted about by Nina Kraviz!

The digital release dropped on Nov.17, coinciding with The Bug’s first PRESSURE night at Village Underground, transplanting his infamous Berlin soundsystem club night, and it was absolutely mad as evinced by these pics/vids on his FB and this spot on Gigwise review:

It’s fantastic to see an artist who has always striven to be different and refuse to pander to the mainstream, and one who was for so long considered to be an eccentric on the fringes of the industry, finally take his place at the centre of what’s going on. The Bug is a serious prospect now, and shows like this put him at the very forefront of live performance. Take our word for it – you won’t hear a more blistering, immaculately constructed and wonderfully vicious racket than this for a long time to come.‘Bad’ / ‘Get Out The Way’ is in shops on Dec.8, 2018 via Ninja Tune.
