Miss Red

Miss Red is the Israeli MC who creates the blueprint for a futuristic new dancehall style in close collaboration with her producer and mentor Kevin Martin aka The Bug.


Having cut her teeth MCing as a teenager in Haifa as a member of the Easy Rider dancehall crew, she got her break jumping on stage for an impromptu freestyle with The Bug in Tel Aviv in 2011. She quickly became a regular member of the Bug’s touring line-up alongside fellow MCs Flowdan, Daddy Freddy, Warrior Queen and Riko Dan and dropped vocals on Bug track Diss Mi Army which was released on his Acid Ragga imprint the following year.

Miss Red released her first solo mixtape Murder in 2015, with The Bug’s riddims supplemented with contributions from other producers including Mark Pritchard, Mumdance and Andy Stott. Subsequent singles on her own Red label and Sounds Of The Universe ensued followed by guest spots with Gaika.

Her debut LP KO, produced by The Bug, was released in July 2018 via Pressure. Her fierce flow rides roughshod over warped bashment anthems like Shock Out and One Shot Killer, but the album also showcases her ability to adapt to different flavours with the addition of ethereal harmonies to the psyched out arcade blips of Clouds or the plaintive dystopian lament of War.
