It's been a while since King Midas Sound graced our ears with some fresh material - four years to be exact - and Aroo sees the trio of Kevin Martin, Roger Robinson and Kiki Hitomi trade Hyperdub for Ninja tune with a two track single ahead of a mooted new album! Arriving on a thick set slab of vinyl and accompanied by a silver metallic print, Aroo signals a change in approach for King Midas Sound ending their love affair with 21st century Lovers Rock and launching into "a great unknown". Martin himself as described the new direction as "My Bloody Valentine in dub" and this certainly feels apt on "Aroo" as the waves of sound come descending down on the channels orchestrated by Hitomi's vocal delivery.
