The third instalment in a triptych of albums, following London Zoo and Angels & Devils, Fire features Moor Mother, Flowdan, Nazamba, FFSYTHO, Manga Saint Hilare, Daddy Freddy and more.
“I used to think I wanted to bury myself in NOW, reality, sensation, information but as time’s gone on I’ve realised I want to actually make a parallel world in sound,” explains The Bug. “The studio gave me an escape from just how fucked up the world was last year.”
Fire follows his Return to Solaris album under his own name — one of our favourite records of June.
