Magnetic Man by Dan


Let me tell you about three young men named Skream, Benga and Artwork. They went on a magical adventure together. When they returned from this adventure, they were Magnetic Man – and so much more than the sum of its parts, Magnetic Man has so far released one track and had one top 10 single. Their fourth coming album is gonna blow minds and eardrums and if you’re anyone who’s anyone, you’ll be at their October 30th show in Sub Club, Glasgow. There has been quite a bit of hype thus far about Magnetic Man live shows. From everything I’ve been hearing, they sound like the Daft Punk of dubstep and drum n bass – using three computers to build original live renditions of their studio tracks. Skream and Benga have said they will mix in parts of their solo tracks as well. Dubstep mashup anyone?

Check out their most recent radio show from August 4th:

This Song Is SO Good by Dan

Lets be honest here, I really do not like Annie Mac – I think she has a gift for ruining songs. You can even hear it in this song I’m posting here. How pompous do you have to be before you start inserting your own links in your “exclusive” songs. PS Annie, I don’t think this one is “exclusive” any more. What kills me about this is that it prevents DJ’s – like me – from using this absolutely epic Skream Remix of Chromeo in any of my sets because every 30 seconds, “this is Annie Mac on Radio One” comes on. Come on Annie. Have some decency!

ps – for all of you who didn’t know already, Skream asked to come to St. Andrews on October 22nd but instead, he was “too busy” which I think we all know means he thinks he is better than us. He “is free every weekday till the end of the year.” How is that too busy? Not cool, Skream, not cool.

New Rusko Tracks by Dan

Just thought I’d let y’all know that Rusko has some new tracks up on his mspce. Yes I just said mspce. I think it just sounds good, ya know?

Anyway, I’m not sure what I think of the tracks. They’re totally different than his old stuff and sound a little tame to me. As per my weird metaphors, I shall describe it like this: Daft Punk cheating on Skream with a transvestite. In an alley. At 2PM. On a Sunday.

Peace out
