The Bug to release infected EP

By | Published on Wednesday 6 October 2010

Dubstep producer The Bug has announced a new EP entitled ‘Infected’. Due to be released by Ninja Tune on 15 Nov, it will be released on two twelve-inches and feature reworked versions of two tracks from his 2008 album, ‘London Zoo’.

The first rework sees King Midas Sound vocalist Hitomi add new vocals to ‘Skeng’, renaming it ‘Catch A Fire’ and turning it into something far less obviously confrontational, though at the same time losing none of the dark analysis of London that filled the original track, and  ‘London Zoo’ as a whole. Next, Roots Manuva lends his vocals to a new version of ‘Poison Dart’, renamed ‘Tune In’, again changing the feel of the track totally from the original.

Following that, on the second twelve-inch, the original versions of both tracks get the remix treatment, the former from Autechre and the latter from Scratch DVA.
