Magnetic Man single Perfect Stranger (download dBridge and Benga mixes)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2010 by E.N.

“Dubstep’s first supergroup” Magnetic Man will release their debut album, also titled Magnetic Man, this October 11.

 This much, you probably already knew. Today though, the team of Skream, Benga and Artwork have announced the release of a second single from it, following this summer’s festival smash ‘I Need Air’.

‘Perfect Stranger’, featuring UK up-and-comer Katy B on vocals, will be released on October 4, and to get people in the mood, the group have given away remixes by Autonomic drum’n’bass kingpin dBridge and Benga himself.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2010 by E.N.

It seems like ages ago, but it has only been a year since we put Cooly G on the cover of XLR8R and began exploring the mutant strain of UK funky being turned out by a select crew of UK producers. A big part of that article was focused around DVA (a.k.a. Scratcha DVA a.k.a. Leon Smart). The former grime disciple and long-time Rinse FM jock was one of the first artists to champion the deeper, housier side of funky, and continues to push boundaries with his percussion-heavy production style and occasionally bonkers sense of melody. On top of his DJ duties, he also runs his own label and has released music on Blackdown’s Keysound Recordings and Kode9′s iconic Hyperdub label. In fact, Hyperdub is home to Scratcha’s next 12″, “Just Vybe” b/w “Step 2 Funk,” which includes a collaboration with vocalist Fatima. That record doesn’t drop until October 4, so this exclusive XLR8R podcast will have to tide over the DVA faithful in the meantime. As expected, he’s sprinkled in plenty of dubplates and unreleased tunes; pay close attention, as this mix is probably a good indication of where funky is headed next.

I Need Air’ sees the trio enlist Angela Hunte on vocals and they must hope her involvement will have the same impact as the Alicia Keys/Jay Z collab ‘New York State of Mind’ which Harte co wrote with the wailing ivory tinkler.

Skream, Benga and Artwork have spent the last few months holed up in a studio putting the final touches on the as yet un named album and Skream was in typically boisterous mood when divulging what to expect. “With all three of us doing it it’s going to get ultra-no-holds barred” says Skream. “This is Magnetic Man. It’s no longer three people: it’s a whole.”

Earlier this month, Skream gave away ‘Mad’ a free taster of what to expect from the Magnetic Man project via his soundcloud page and the 5000 odd downloads are a precient indication of the anticipation building around this project.(JUNO)

SKREAM + BENGA + ARTWORK = MAGNETIC MAN. Coming July 25th on download and vinyl, with remixes from Redlight and Digital Soundboy.
Magnetic Man album in November.

Caspa ‘My Style’ Mix CD & DVD [Dub Police Records]

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 8, 2010 by E.N.

The last time Caspa put his name to a mix compilation it was December 2007. Back then he was alongside his original partner in crime Rusko for the infamous Fabric:37 mix, the CD that had been earmarked for French-electro trendies Justice but ended up being rejected at the last minute. Fabric needed something fast and the decision was made to call Caspa and Rusko, two relative unknowns that specialized in the type of dark, off-kilter dance music that (at the time) you’d only find in small, dark, smokey basements.

Fast-forward 3.5 years and dubstep is the most exciting, youthful club music in the UK with Fabric:37 regarded as the CD that took dubstep from the underground and into the mainstream. It!s still the benchmark for all DJs in the scene to aspire to and where Caspa and Rusko were once unknowns; they are now two of the most influential DJs in the world, with Caspa’s bi-monthly Dub Police night at Fabric now the most successful night on the club’s roster. It’s success that was impossible to predict.

Caspa’s success was no fluke though, in fact you’d be hard pressed to find a harder-working person in the industry, having built up his ever-growing empire from scratch. In 2010 he is a man in demand, off the back of his debut artist album last year “Everybody’s Talking, Nobody’s Listening!” he has remixed the likes of Deadmau5, Depeche Mode, Mike Snow and most recently U.S superstar Ludacris. He’s helped bring through acts such as Emalkay, The Others, D1 and Subscape through his labels Dub Police and Subsoldiers and via his regular sell-out label roster club shows, most notably the pre-mentioned Fabric residency.

His DJ schedule is still out of control with an average of 15-20 shows per month, booked up 6-months in advance and this summer the shows are only getting bigger. In June he’ll make his debut at Sonar festival… On the main stage… In between Dizzee Rascal and The Chemical Brothers – things have changed for the boy from Chiswick. And on to “My Style!”, the brand new mix series from Dub Police that once again plans to break the mould of what a dubstep mix can be with a number of acts already being lined up for future editions. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves; this is No.1 and who better to take the controls than the label head honcho Caspa. In the mix he takes us through the full spectrum of dubstep sound with dance floor slayers from the likes of Skream, Emalkay and Doctor P through to the more eclectic sounds of Joy Orbison, D1 and Joker. Of course there’s an untold amount of exclusives to boot, giving fans an early preview of some of the biggest records set to blow up in the summer months, with brand new material from the Dub Police / Subsoldiers camp.

From the 23 tracks selected we see Caspa couple upfront and unheard material with some of the scene’s biggest anthems of the last year with Emalkay’s “When I Look At You’, Joy Orbison’s now classic ‘Hyph Mngo’ and Caspa’s massive remix of Deadmau5 “I Remember” all featuring throughout the mix. Seamlessly blended, Caspa nails it with a 100% live, 1-take exceptional DJ mix using (as ever) only dub plates, a mixer and a set of 1210’s.

The mix will also come with a bonus DVD, featuring exclusive content from Caspa and all the Dub Police crew.
