Kevin Martin, aka dubstep producer The Bug and one half of King Midas Sound, has announced the launch of his own record label, Acid Ragga, which will operate as an imprint of Ninja Tune.

The label is set to release a series of seven-inches from Martin as The Bug. The first will feature two new tracks, ‘Can’t Take This No More’ featuring Daddy Freddy and ‘Rise Up’ featuring Inga Copeland of Hype Williams. It will be followed by ‘Ganja Baby’, another track with vocals from Daddy Freddy.

Other artists Martin is working with on future releases include Death Grips, Gonjasufi, Grouper, Justin Broadrick, The Spaceape, Flowdan and Warrior Queen.

Speaking about the new project, Martin said: “After [2008 The Bug album] ‘London Zoo’ I wanted to come with something intense and fresh, and the Acid Ragga label is it”.
