Miss Red debut LP ‘K.O.’ (prod. by The Bug) out July 13 – stream lead single “Dagga”
Miss Red’s warcry of a debut LP ‘K.O.’ will be dropping with full force on July 13 via The Bug’s new label PRESSURE, following his Flame 1 collab with Burial. The Israeli MC’s one of a kind flow has been all over The Bug’s live sets and tracks for the past few years and first made a splash with her 2015 Murder mixtape ft. production by Evian Christ, Andy Stott, Mumdance, Mark Pritchard++ w/ videos for “Murder” & “Fever” and has since release singles via her Red Label imprint of Sounds of The Universe and guested on tracks with Warp’s GAIKA.
‘K.O.’ is dedicated to her grandfather, a renowned prizefighter who passed away during the making of the album and is featured on it’s cover. Of the album, Red says: “For me, reggae is the foundation of this record but the album’s movement is freer. It mirrors my need to move and keep challenging myself. As a white Israeli girl working as an MC in the music industry, and in particular as a singer, it’s a BIG battle to be taken seriously, and as a woman in the music industry, I am in an obvious minority, the situation is clear, the MAN is still in control—that has got to be addressed, and changed.”

Plenty of MCs have accompanied Martin over the years, but the Israeli has a seductive yet savage chemistry that suits the limber brutality of the music perfectly. Bathed in red light and smoke, the pair completely brought the house down. – RA review of Simple Things ’17
For all the ruckus that Martin inevitably brings to the show Miss Red is still 100% the star – it’s a testament to her presence and flow as MC that she’s able to ride all over the avalanche Bug riddims that thunder about the place, as ever her vocal range sharp glass amidst the dense racket. – The Quietus review of Unsound ’16
