Listen to King Midas Sound’s new collaboration with Fennesz


Check out ‘Waves’, the first track to be released from King Midas Sound and Fennesz’s upcoming collaborative album ‘Edition 1.’

King Midas Sound (comprised of The Bug, Roger Robinson and Kiki Hitomi) debuted in 2009 with the LP Waiting For You on Hyperdub in 2009. Their new album ‘Edition 1’, due for release on Ninja Tune on 18 September features Austrian guitarist / electronic musician Fennesz, whose 2001 album ‘Endless Summer’ was a mix of tonal guitars and emotional shifts which inspired and sparked an admiration within Kevin and Roger to bring him onboard. Utilizing improvised guitar tracks, samples, and unreleased material from Fennesz’s archive, ‘Edition 1’ took shape within the KMS framework. In the wake of Kevin Martin’s last Bug album Angels & Devils, he wanted to instead create a record focused on kaleidoscopic sonic beauty. The good news is that there are apparently already a further three Editions planned, with the choice of future collaborators currently still under wraps
