Legendary label Ninja Tune has been celebrating its 20th birthday all year long and they’re still not getting tired. On the contrary, there have been some ass-kicking new releases. Amongst them is this double 12″ vinyl (also a digital download) of Kevin Martin’s The Bug. As the promo says, “Infected blurs the lines between his various guises, lulling you into a false sense of security before striking out hard.”
On the video to ‘Catch A Fire’ you can see and hear King Midas Sound collaborator Hitomi on vocals.
Over at XLR8R you can also download a podcast (one of a series of Ninja Tune XX podcasts) with label founders Coldcut teaming up with old-school Ninja Tune acts DJ Food and DK. It’s a massive mix of 70-plus minutes and more than 40 tracks showcasing the many eras, sounds, and styles of the label’s history.
