King Midas Sound - Waiting For You…
King Midas Sound is Kevin Martin (also known for his work as The Bug), singer/poet Roger Robinson, and vocalist Kiki Hitomi. This was their 2009 debut album for Hyperdub.
“Roger Robinson’s voice is a huge physical presence, creating an unbearable intimacy and closeness that perfectly mirrors the all-encompassing nature of the bass that enshrouds him like mist – a reflection occasionally multiplied by Hitomi’s sharp, sexually aggressive stage whispers. As well as continuing to mark out Hyperdub’s unique space in modern music, regardless of genre, the trio’s debut album Waiting For You manages to summon up ghosts of distinctly British urban dread, while at the same time harking back to its originators’ respective backgrounds.” (Rory Gibb for Drowned in Sound)
