The Bug presents Killing Sound Chapter 6: Blue

I turned to the blue side many moons ago… maybe as an only child Gemini it was inevitable from birth, lol. But my favourite musical colours have always been red for fire and blue for immersion.
Maybe it’s because misery seeks company and we all feel better knowing someone else has been to the same zones of null. Maybe it’s the craving to know someone else is articulating loss so perfectly, but BLUE is a racially universal state of mind that unites us all in the need for release… and the need to drop some tears occasionally. The anatomy of melancholy is irresistible to me. There’s a beauty in sadness that goes way beyond self-pity, and magnetizes me to the purest of emotions. So many of these tracks have been my companions at difficult times, and some have even provided the catalyst for Bug eye droplets hitting the floor.
In this instance this mix is as deep as the ocean to me and twice as welcoming.
