About London Zoo

The Bug, aka Kevin Martin, has built up all kinds of cred in the 20 years he's spent tinkering around the edges of space jazz, ambient techno, and sub-genres (dancehall, illbient, grime, etc.) that float under the radar of the casual dance fan. His raging experimentation and massive, thumping drum machines are volatile and ominous, a taste that takes a little time to acquire. On London Zoo however, Martin merges the dark brashness of his beats with a game cast of MCs and vocalists bent on slamming The Man and venting about a political and spiritual malaise. It's an effective combination of music and words, and produces a relatively approachable—and exceptionally timely—record. The emphasis on dub and reggae patois makes the lyrics hard to discern, but there’s no missing the flowing, wrathful passion. "Angry" sets the pace early, as Tippa Irie tears into Bush, Katrina, and a manufactured climate of fear. Flowdan's Rasta delivery makes an impact as well, especially the dub-step bomb throwing session "Jah War." Martin understands tonal contrast, and so Zoo’s women are just as hot; check out the brutal dystopia of "Poison Dart," with Warrior Queen's filthy, spitting diatribe. Meanwhile, quieter non-vocal tracks like "Freak Freak" give the listener a needed breather. London Zoo is a volcano of a record, belching bass and vocal lava flows into the air with righteous fury. Buy this and watch your sub-woofer erupt.--Matthew Cooke
