WUGS (capitals for severity) are not poets, they do not talk about what’s going on in the world, they are horrified by being labelled and don’t care about trends.
WUGS produce bass music, influenced by drum and bass, dub, trap, pop and house music and bring people together to celebrate, enjoy themselves, scream ‘FIIIRE’ like the damned, lose 400 calories, drink litres of water, eventually collapse in a pool of sweat and feel ‘King’!
WUGS means WUGS, because that’s just the way it is, and if you don’t like it, then well ‘WHAT U GONNA SAY B*TCH?’
How are three artists with such strong characters, yet who never even disagree, able to build up a foreign crowd together, born to sponsor pogos and goosebumps, and encourage conquests and failed loves? Because we were made for it, because the stars have aligned, because sometimes it’s just completely silly: we meet up, we collaborate, we enjoy ourselves and we create big tracks as they come to us, as long as throughout it all we feel invincible, happy, alive - at least for a moment.
According to WUGS, music is for just that. In other words, having strength and ambition, strange, sexual or violent thoughts, so that you are hit with the whole lot at once, and then these come together while beating out the hits ‘Feelin U’, ‘So Hi’, ‘Bagga Won’, or ‘Release Me’. Tracks like crumbling cathedrals. The underground tubes packed with the desire to let rip and enjoy yourself under the radar of a safe fallout shelter.
Here we have Junkeï, a sound engineer and wise Shaolin who grew up in Madagascar. And then we have Svnt7n, enfant terrible and creative force. And finally, Bagga, with a raging voice in a smooth throat who says ‘no’ simply to say ‘no’, when she is not smashing the mic. Because the woman has a soul sista turned boss type of voice. Because all you need to do is listen to The Wire, their first top-quality, amazing, urgent EP, to realise that between the fierce harangues and the fat groove written by the other two, WUGS are here firstly to offer carnivorous energy and atomic ‘Drops’ to their era.
Anyone who saw WUGS live at Electron festival on the Dock stage (Fêtes de Genève - Geneva Festival) and at the Makhno festival knows what we are talking about. There, the trio had put the pedal to the metal, really encouraging the public to enjoy dub or electro music and let loose as if they had been invited to a ball pit. And now for the good news! Cooking up an album to be released in 2018, the trio do not intend to settle down, promising to completely sell out and talk more about love, storms and dirt until the message is clear to everyone:
