The Bug - 'Machine1', is the first EP, in a regular series of instrumental 'Machine' singles, where i release purpose built PRESSURE weapons for droppin at the PRESSURE parties and other live BUG events.
It will subsequently either drop as part of a series of ltd 12" singles or be collected as part of a vinyl LP, comprising of the finest cuts from the EPs, (Yet to be decided). For me the beauty of this is the unknowing, as i approach each single on a one by one basis. Only objective in mind. Level floors, test rigs and provide soul/body food.
Slower, lower, hypnotic and basically dirty as f-ck, this E.P. is futuristic dub, as deep and monolithic as i could excavate this time round, but strangely haunted by Techno Animal's Re-Entry, in terms of audio hallucinations. Anyone smitten by the Flame series with Burial, G36's output, T.A.'s Position Chrome period, classic Wordsound, or my recent remixes for Al Cisneros or Moderat, will hopefully find sweetness herein...Strictly onwards
Purposely unleashed to coincide with our PRESSURE session returning to Gretchen Berlin tomorrow night, the tracks will receive their first airing on my rig, at myself/Goh's party.(Thx as ever to Lars and the crew)
I thank Fred, Simon, Zig for joining me in the madcap scheme to turn this round in time.. I missed Bandcamp Friday, but hey, never too late to indulge..
PS Gratitude to my neighbours for not calling the Police.

The perfect accompaniment to reading Shirley Jackson's short stories. A creeping unease....granular, twitchy, lengthening moans (or am I 'hearing' things?!?), mournful beauty. Utterly magnificent. jahrigsby
