KING MIDAS SOUND is Londoner / experimental / dub producer KEVIN
“THE BUG” MARTIN, Afro Caribbean Poet ROGER ROBINSON and Japanese
Graphic Artist / Musician KIKI HITOMI. They released their debut album “Waiting for You” on the Hyperdub label in
December 2009. Now, in the tradition of dub, they have reworked their album with
help from friends GREEN GARTSIDE (Scritti Politti), GANG GANG DANCE, FLYING
LOTUS, ROBERT LOWE, NITE JEWEL, HYPE WILLIAMS, KODE9, COOLY G and others.
Titled Without You, it arrives in
November.

This album starts to bridge the gap between the Lovers Rock of their debut and
the full on onslaught of their live show which has been described as “My Bloody
Valentine in dub.” In August the band released the first taster – a video for
the KUDEO reworking of “Goodbye Girl”:

this project – the first part of a documentary on the band directed by
Inumikaku (Hiroo Tanaka):
