King Midas Sound

King Midas Sound is the duo of poet Roger Robinson and Kevin Martin (aka The Bug). Releases on Hyperdub and Ninja Tune set the blueprint for their sound: a mutant blend of electronic lovers’ rock, dub and narco hip-hop. Solitude, their new album, is a meditation on loss. The duo plough a lonely furrow of minimal ambience and haunting melancholia in tone poems that radiate isolation and dread. Their live show explores the possibilities of spoken word, deep listening and low volume ambience to create an inward-facing intensity that demands total immersion.
