Kind Midas Sound is the collaboration between Kevin Martin and Roger Robinson. Martin, of course, has been well-known for a decade through his work as The Bug, but also with projects such as God, Techno Animal and others carving niches in genres including dub, jazzcore, industrial hip hop and dubstep. Roger Robinson had already guested on some of The Bug tracks and worked with Pressure, another of Martin's projects. King Midas Sound’s new album Waiting For You
takes their collaboration to new levels. Delivered in a hushed, breathy tone, sometimes slipping into a lover's rock falsetto, Robinson's dub-poet musings add a layer of mysticism, shifting their spatial perspective to Martin's abrasive beats, which jump out from a sinister backdrop of reverb-drenched, distorted soundscapes. King Midas Sounds´ are simultaneously disturbing and invigorating.
