Youngman, one of the UK’s most exciting and vibrant young vocal talents, has today announced the release of his eagerly awaited new single ‘Who Knows?’ on Shy FX’s Digital Soundboy label.
Mixing Youngman’s powering and distinctive vocal with the pulsating sonic workings of long time friend and collaborator Skream (Magnetic Man), ’Who Knows?’ blurs the lines between underground club smash and credible mainstream hit, having already been named Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’, MistaJam’s ‘Jam Hot’ and Annie Mac’s ‘Record Of The Week’.
With a career that is still in its infancy, Youngman (Simon Smith) has already made his mark as a standout vocalist in the drum’n’bass, and dubstep scenes, working closely with his father Simon ‘Bassline’ Smith plus Breakage and regular live collaborator Benga. He is indeed already a seasoned live performer having graced the stages of Glastonbury, Creamfields, Exit, Lovebox, Global Gathering and across Europe, Australia & North America.
Having become the choice hype man for Skream & Benga, Youngman became a master of working an audience, with his presence as a performer and his inimitable singing voice coming to the fore; it wasn’t long before Skream & Benga turned their attentions to channelling Youngman’s talents into a unique and fresh vocal sound.
‘Who Knows’ is the second offering from Youngman and comes in the wake of his debut street single ‘Tear It Out’/’I Warned Ya’ getting massive support in clubs and radio, with the likes of Radio 1, 1Xtra and Rinse FM all throwing their weight behind the track. With an album in the making titled ‘Me & My Music’, set for release next year the producer credits read like a who’s who of British music, with the likes of Benga, Skream, Shy FX, Breakage, MJ Cole, Sam Frank and Kutz all contributing.
Whilst working away in the studo, Simon has also found time to extended his creative and entrepreneurial skills by designing his own successful clothing range and spearheading a new education scheme ‘Music & Life Workshops’ back in his home town Derby.
With a full schedule of live dates throughout November, December and January with Benga and  Skream, as well as nationwide solo PA performances including 1Xtra Live on 30th Nov, Youngman is primed to cement himself as the next breakthrough underground star.

Ever since the age of 7, Laura Pacheco aka “Riya” has been involved in music, working as a session singer, in choirs, gospel choirs, and playing various instruments.

In 2004 she moved to London and this is where things really took off for her.
Between 2004 – 2008, Riya featured on a number of various drum and bass tracks under her real name “Laura Pacheco”, collaborating with artists such as Klute, State of Mind, Bungle, and Total Science. However, in 2009, Laura decided to change her name to Riya to reflect the change in her writing, and artistry.

Her first release under the Riya name was S.P.Y ft. Riya – “Rebirth” – Soul:r, shortly followed by the massive “Testimony” [Total Science & S.P.Y] which was supported by Bailey on BBC 1Xtra, every week, for 6 months solid!

In the past year, Riya has gone from strength to strength, being named as “the best vocalist in dnb right now” by Mixmag, and featured in their “Hi my name is” interview section.

She has released a string of well-loved songs, including “Seems Like” [produced by dBridge] which featured on the Autonomic Fabric CD and the massive “Open Page” on Metalheadz which is arguably one of Riya’s best tracks to date.

“Open Page” has had over 250,000 views on youtube, and was named “Single of the Month” in Mixmag/ IDJ, was BBC 1Xtra playlisted, and was supported by every DJ in the scene.

“Redlines”, a more soulful venture with Total Science, has also received much support from BBC radio DJs such as Annie Mac, Fabio, Bailey, and Mistajam, and has featured on Ministry of Sound CDs alongside DJ sets of many.

So what does the next 12 months hold for Riya? She is currently writing an album for the Autonomic label which will feature some of her favourite genres of music, alongside collaborating with artists in other genres, working on hiphop/soul, and learning piano and production.

Riya will also be performing more live both in the UK and abroad, and perhaps doing a few DJ sets. Riya is also a vocal coach, and any prospective students looking for lessons should message her direct.

Magnetic Man – I Need Air (video+preview remixes)

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.
