Kevin Martin uploads a collection of previously unreleased tracks to YouTube including a remix of The Clash

Kevin Martin has kicked off the year in lively fashion sharing a selection of unreleased The Bug tracks and demos online including a remix of The Clash’s ‘Guns of Brixton’ featuring the late Spaceape - you can hear that above.

“This was an officially commisioned remix, as sanctioned by Kyle/Microsoft,” Martin wrote on Facebook. “Stephen (Spaceape) loved this, as did Kyle and I, but the Clash members’ family estates wouldn’t agree to it being released due to internal wrangles.”

There are further tracks featuring Spaceape among the uploads from the producer as well as a track featuring Mentor Irie and frequent collaborator Miss Red. You can check them all out here.
