THE BUG

The Bug’s music draws influence from dancehall, noise, grime, and hip hop.

More subtle influences include dubstep and the dubtronica and broken techno of Basic Channel and Pole.

 

The Bug’s first album, Tapping The Conversation, was released in 1997 on the seminal Wordsound label. The album was conceived as an alternative soundtrack to the 1974 Francis Ford Coppola film The Conversation. In this incarnation The Bug consisted of Kevin Martin and DJ Vadim was in more of a downtempo and trip-hop vein.

 

From 2001-2004 The Bug collaborated with UK reggae soundsystem veteran The Rootsman on a number of limited edition 7″ singles, released on the Razor X label. These releases were characterised by their harsh, aggressive nature both musically and vocally (vocal artists including Jamaican MCs such as He-Man and Wayne Lonesome).

 

The Bug’s second album, Pressure was released on Rephlex Records in 2003.

It included a number of more ambient, dub-influenced tracks alongside the ragga-tinged onslaughts.

The Razor X singles were compiled on the Killing Sound album (along with newer material) which was released by Rephlex in 2006.

Bug projects have included collaborations with a number of singers and MCs including Cutty Ranks, Flow Dan, Warrior Queen and Ras B. In 2005 he collaborated with Mark Stewart and Keith Levene and has released records on Rephlex, Tigerbeat6 and Klien Records. The Bug produced some radio sessions, including a clash with Soundmurderer on John Peel and a 2006 Breezeblock session with 10 MCs.

In 2006, The Bug launched a monthly London-based reggae club night entitled BASH, in collaboration with dubstep producer Loefah. 2008 saw the release of London Zoo, the third full release from the project, on Ninja Tune to critical acclaim.

 

 

TM404

TM404 – a unique live project from Andreas Tilliander

 

Andreas Tilliander has since the debut album « Ljud » (2001), continuously developed and modified his sound. It has sounded  pop on « World Industries » and noise on « Hateless » (the latter under the Mokira monicker), but it has never sounded as the  record to be released in the end of January next year (a 12″ with remixes by praised artist Morphosis will be out as soon as 28th of November).

 

 

 

With a new alias, TM404, Andreas Tilliander has created enjoyable ambient dub simmering with life and details. The songs have all been recorded live, in real time in the studio. A unique way of operating within today’s electronic music.

 

– Everything is recorded in one take. Nothing is post arranged, says Andreas Tilliander, and adds that this might be his most ambitious album ever.

 

 

 

On Youtube you can witness how Tilliander and the machines are working together. Andreas himself has filmed and posted the material.

The Roland instruments’ collectable value is high. Andreas also flaunts a Roland 505 and a 909. However, they didn’t appear on the record.

– The idea was to make stripped down music, so I excluded them. I also restricted myself further. The 303 has for example, two wave forms for creating sound, but I decided to only use one.

The project’s name is also a tribute to Roland, although of the more intricate kind.

 

– When they made these machines in the eighties, they avoided the 404, since the sound for four, ‘chi’, is the same as the sound for death in Japanese. At that time it was therefore taboo and the 404 was never launched. Not until now, due to my album!

 

 

 

Thanks for reading.

 

 

I hope to haer from you asap.

 

Regards.

 

 

Alain
