FLAME 1 (BURIAL & THE BUG) - FOG / SHRINE VINYL (LTD. ED. 12")
LIMITED EDITION 12" VINYL
Release Date: 30th March 2018
The first release from the collaborative project between two of Britain's dub-step pioneers in Will Bevan, aka Burial, and Kevin Martin, aka The Bug. Both 'Fog' and 'Shrine' are deep n' dirty bass hitters that are as dark as they are disturbing (that's a good thing by the way!) and soundtrack a late night in the backstreets of urban London. Watch ya back!
For Fans Of: Burial, The Bug, Actress, Forest Swords
"The Bug goes head to head with Burial for two bass-bin heaters that is Flame 1, cementing the first release on his freshly formed label Pressure. Following on from The Bug's recent sidewinding 12"s for Ninja Tune and a colossal album recorded with Earth, Fog / Shrine is possibly Kevin Martin's most soundsystem decimating collaboration yet, joining forces with the most elusive figure within the UK underground and Hyperdub mainstay, Burial. 'Fog' rolls along at half-speed steppers tempo, submerged deep within the roots 'n' future aesthetic of The Bug's signature beats, yet perfectly balanced by Burial's hollowed out and haunted night vision. 'Shrine' delves deeper inwards with the beats slowed to a crawl, the bassline hanging heavy in an atmosphere thick with smoke."
