Welcome to the final Calling In A Favour on dublab.de for 2020.
It’s over. We did it. Congratulations.
As you know, t'is the season of Year End’s charts – and of the nagging, uncomfortable truths that no. One. Really. Cares. However, maybe that’s because we didn’t create any genre-defining albums like London Zoo, or because we didn’t invent the Acid Ragga genre. Or is it because we haven't collaborated with Justin Broadrick, Moor Mother, Burial, and hundreds more…? That's why, on this very special 2 hours-long jolly season finale, our guest is none other than The Bug AKA Kevin Martin.
The Bug recently moved from Berlin to Brussels, where he finished the record of the year contender, In Blue, with singer/producer Dis Fig. In the first quarter we discuss his personal year and the music he put out in 2020, before we run down a list of his own favourite tunes of 2020, including tracks by the Necks, William Basinski, Pa Salieu, Griselda, and many more. Thanks for listening & stay safe.
