Can someone recommend me more music that sounds like them?
Musically, a lot of darker grime/dubstep may fit the bill. Skream, Mala, Digital Mystikz, RSD, Gemmy, Joker...
Try Kode9 and the Spaceape's album 'Memories of the Future' for sure.
kode9 and the space ape's album is the most similar thing you will find (that I know of), there are a whole host of singles/one offs that are similar. Myspace can be a good place to look
Alot of people lump him in with Dubstep but I really don't see many sonic similarities with his beats. The closest reference point is really ragga voiced Grime MCs (two of whom appear on the album) and the rougher fringes of dancehall. Bearing that in mind i'd reccomend the following:
Riko - The Truth
Nasty Jack - Shotta Music
Killa P - Killer Instinct Vol. 1
although their postage charges are hefty.
is basically The Bug with Flow Dan.
not to much is like him really, he gets thrown in with dubstep in the sense that dubstep is anything with lots of bass at about 140 bpm which is good enough for me.
you might enjoy some other grimey stuff if your feeling the bug: Trim, Dot Rotten, Durrty Goodz are my favourite they aint to simular but they can be dark and beat happy alot of the time.
The Bug has another project called King Midus Sound and I think there is an album under that name dropping sometime this year. It's a little softer I think but it uses one of the same vocalists as he did on London Zoo.
Beat Pharmacy's Wikkid Times covers simular vocal ground and with some of the same vocalists but over the top of deep house / minimal / dub techno beats.
