Ever since the great minds of Kevin "The Bug" Martin and Flowdan came together for the seminal "Skeng" in 2007, the two have remained close friends and collaborators—teaming up several times over the years and always to devastating effect. Now, they're back once more for a new gully banger called "Bad".
As ever, The Bug's production is gnarled, distorted and mired in sludgey bass, and Flowdan's as commanding and powerful as ever. As thumping as "Bad" is, we get to see Flowdan at his most lyrical, weaving catchy tales of his youth—peppered with punchlines and slight-of-hand wordplay.
Noisy, dubby and caustic, "Bad" could only have come from Flowdan and The Bug. Stream the track exclusively below.
"Bad" is taken from The Bug's new double A-side single which also features "Get Out The Way" with Killa P and Irah (due November 17 digitally and December 8 physically).
