Youngman Official Video ‘Who Knows?’ (Skream-produced single)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2011 by E.N.

Youngman announces release of hotly anticipated new single ‘Who Knows?’ on January 29th 2012.
London singer with close connections to Magnetic Man will release single on Shy FX’s Digital Soundboy label.
‘’The future of pop’’– Annie Mac, Radio 1
“He’s next in line” – Zane Lowe, Radio 1
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.

RIYA [aka Laura Pacheco] – Songwriter, Vocalist, Lyricist

Autonomic::Metalheadz::Soul:r::Shogun::Exit::Digital Soundboy::CIA:: Critical Music

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)

Posted in News, Promotions with tags , , , , , , on July 7, 2010 by E.N.

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.

Having already released across a host of leading labels, including Soul:r, Digital Soundboy, Creative Source, Bingo and 31 Records, Lynx has established himself firmly at the forefront of a fresh new sound within drum & bass. A producer par-excellence, his tracks range in style from straight-up dancefloor funk to deep and boundary-pushing beats but always maintain the attention to detail that has come to be Lynx’s trademark.

Following on from the success of the critically-acclaimed album on Soul:r, ‘The Raw Truth,’ Lynx has much more in store for 2010, first and foremost his new label Detail Recordings which launches this month.

@ Vooruit, Ghent


Line up:

N Type ( Wheel and Deal Records, Tempa, Rinse.FM, UK )
Mala ( Digital Mystikz, UK )
Breakage ( Digital Soundboy, Bassbin, Critical, UK )
Youngsta ( Tempa , FWD >>,, UK )
Kryptic Minds ( Osiris Music, Swamp81, Tectonic, UK )

Stamina MC ( Digital Soundboy,, UK )
Grimelock ( Stainage )
Science ( Untitled )

Price:Pre-sale:  15,00 Euro  ;  Door:  19,00 Euro

Doors:from 23h till 6h



Last year Mr M & One87 launched the first edition of a brand new Dubstep concept called “Daily Dubstep” in the main concert-hall of the first class venue Vooruit in Ghent.

The expectations were high but the final result really exceeded those expectations big time … what an amazing night it was …. Completely sold out from the first go with all you dubstep fans having the night of your life or at least, it looked that way. ;)

So we hope you are ready for some more … because we sure are! It wasn’t easy to top the previous line-up but we think we managed and hope it will exceed your expectations … we have 5 international artists instead of two and two of the UK’s top MC’s to get you going even more …

All our guests are widely accepted as the instigators and leading forces of Dubstep!

First up is N Type who has been proclaimed Best Dubstep DJ several years in a row. Next to running his own label Wheel and Deal Recordings, he’s also co-owner of Sin City Recordings with DJ Hatcha and next to releases for Dubpolice, Terrain Records and more, he also mixed the 5th Allstar Dubstep Compilation for Tempa. And then we haven’t even talked about his super popular radio-show on Rinse FM.

He will be joined by Mala from Digital Mystikz, discovered early on by the legendary John Peel and responsible for the groundbreaking DMZ record label and club-nights as well as many famous productions.

Moving effortlessly through styles from Drum ‘n’ Bass to Dubstep, Breakage has proved himself to be one of the most versatile operators in either scene to date. A prodigious talent, he already has a number of classic releases under his belt but continues to develop his sound with releases across leading imprints including Digital Soundboy, Tempa and Warp.
Youngsta doesn’t only A&R for the leading Tempa Record label, he also represents the label all over the world, mixes compilations and is now getting into more production work with DJ Seven.
And even though Kryptic Minds started out in the Drum ‘n’ Bass scene, they re-discovered their musical faith through Dubstep, through creative alliances with half-step dons Youngsta and Loefah.
Add to that the energy and power of SP:MC and Stamina MC as well as Belgian talents Grimelock and Science and you know, this will be a wicked party again!
So make damn sure you don’t miss it … it just might go down, again, as one of the best Dubstep parties Belgium knows, and if in doubt, maybe these pics will give you an idea …

N Type ( Wheel and Deal Records, Tempa, Rinse.FM, UK )

The award-winning Dubstep DJ / producer and label owner N-Type is without doubt one of the heavyweights in the scene. Voted Best Dubstep DJ several years in a row, he has releases out on labels such as Tempa, 3.5 Records and his own Terrain imprint. You can always expect the freshest dub-plates, biggest beats, bass-lines and anthems in an N-Type set.

N-Type began his career presenting an underground chart show on Delight FM with DJ Walsh. As time went by Walsh left the station and N-Type later took on a weekend chart show as he established a solo career. He quickly established himself as the main Dubstep DJ/producer on Delight FM and did regular guest shows on many other London pirate stations and internet stations. His mix compilations were rinsed on radio, which helped him gain recognition and bookings all over England and abroad. His shows have always concentrated on good vibes and giving the best music and talent the recognition they deserve.

He is always up to date with a wide selection of dubs from the finest producers. Eventually Delight fm closed down due to unexplained circumstances and N-Type moved on to Rinse Fm. Since then he has gained international recognition and currently presents a popular show on He expanded the show with more interviews, guest mixes and collaborations pushing artists and their music to the fullest.

In 2005 he focused his attention on production with his first sell out Track “Square off” hitting record shops on Southside Dubstars. He then signed tracks to other labels such as Dubpolice, Tempa and 3.5 Records and his own label Terrain Records.

His tunes have been gaining support from many Dj’s and radio stations with regular airplay on Rinse Fm, BBC Radio 1’s Breezeblock thanks to Mary Anne Hobbs and the Dubstep show on Kiss 100FM thanks to DJ Hatcha. N-Type is currently a resident at FWD>> & Dubpolice and has played at the mighty DMZ.

In 2007 N-Type was then given the opportunity by Ammuntion and Tempa to mix the 5th installment of Dubstep Allstars 5. The mix was released in the summer and took the critics by storm! This was a sure sign of the growth of the music and the respect it was getting.

More recently he started a new label Wheel and Deal Records with releases from DJ Kutz, Matt U, Youngsta, … Next to that he runs Sin City Records with DJ Hatcha.

Mala ( Digital Mystikz, UK )

Digital Mystikz, comprised of DJ/producers Coki and Mala, are at the forefront of London’s dubstep sound, leading the way with their own unique brand of dubbed out London sounds. Both derived of jungle, dub reggae and garage yet brand new, the sound had emerged from London and spread a love of sub bass, skankin riddims and mystical melodies across the world.

Along with Loefah and Sgt. Pokes, they operate the DMZ record label and host the influential bimonthly nightclub DMZ, held at the Mass club complex in Brixton, London. Legendary BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, was an early supporter of Digital Mystikz, eventually putting them in his annual 2004 Top 50 list at #29.

They are among the scene’s most famous producers. Their song “Anti War Dub” appeared in the 2006 film “Children of Men,” although it wasn’t included in the soundtrack. In the summer of 2008, Mala was chosen to headline the night portion of the Sónar Festival in Barcelona. Nowadays, he travels the world!

Breakage ( Digital Soundboy, Bassbin, Critical, UK )

Never afraid to make an impact, Breakage burst onto the Drum ‘n’ Bass scene back in 2000 and announced his arrival with a raucous remix of a hardcore classic, Nasty Habit’s ‘Here Come the Drums’ on Reinforced. Backing up this bold move with a series of EPs for the legendary label proved he was no young pretender and he quickly established himself at the forefront of new wave of break-beat scientists.

A regular guest at nights such as Technicality in London and Bassbin in Dublin, Breakage brought his own unique mix of reggae bass-lines and time-stretched funk breaks to the clubs with huge success. His remix of Equinox’s ‘Acid Rain’ (originally released on Innerspective) plus massive singles for Bassbin (‘So Vain’) and Critical (‘Staggered Dub’) drew support from a range of DJs across the scene, including Fabio, Shy FX and Zinc, and quickly regarded by some as classics.

Support from Planet Mu boss Mike Paradinas resulted in a release on the esteemed label (‘Drowning b/w 9th Hand’) and hinted at the appeal of Breakage’s music beyond the club environment. With further releases on Critical and Scientific Wax plus the development of a collaborative partnership with DJ Flight (under the name Alias), Breakage had already proven his versatility and shown that he was capable of much more.

His debut album release came in 2006 and clearly demonstrated Breakage could adapt to a range of styles. Featuring joint efforts alongside SP:MC and Rohan, ‘This Too Shall Pass’ also included more slower tempo material and hinted at what was to come. Linking up with Digital Soundboy in 2007, Breakage soon turned heads with the haunting half-time dubbed-out beats of ‘Clarendon b/w Shroud’.

It came as no surprise that he would make waves in the dubstep community with his next release, ‘Callahan b/w Untitled,’ and set dancefloors ablaze with a joint remix of Benga & Coki’s ‘Night,’ alongside Shy FX as Digital Soundboy. With reggae legend David Rodigan lending vocals to his next release (‘Together b/w Rain’), Breakage continued to build on his successes and established himself firmly as one on of the leading lights at 140bpm.

Remixes for the Sony-backed songstress Zarif plus leftfield hiphop maverick Flying Lotus are slated for release before his next LP, ‘Foundation’, and hint strongly at the strength of Breakage’s appeal. With high profile collaborations across a range of styles, the album shows Breakage at his best and is accompanied by a worldwide tour.

Youngsta ( Tempa , FWD >>,, UK )

Without doubt one of the finest DJs in Dubstep, Youngsta’s flawless mixing and deadly accurate selection place him at the forefront of this evolving scene. Representing flagship label Tempa with an exclusive array of dub-plates, his sets continue to raise the bar for quality and innovation.

Despite his young age, Youngsta has already attained veteran status in the Dubstep scene. Residencies at FWD>> and Rinse FM set him apart as a tastemaker and pioneer, supporting early productions from the likes of El-B, Horsepower, Loefah, Digital Mystickz, Skream, Benga, D1 and Headhunter. More recently, he’s been working in the studio alongside Seven, N-Type, Kryptic Minds and Icicle.

Youngsta was asked to present the Dubstep Allstars 2 CD for Tempa in 2005, following Hatcha’s first instalment in the ground-breaking series. Built around exclusive dub-plates created for only a handful of DJs, the compilation reflects Youngsta’s skills both in crafting a mix as well as selecting a sound. It’s no surprise he now represents Tempa as A&R and has helped bring attention to the likes of D1, Headhunter, SP:MC and Seven plus others on the label.

Although he’s not yet known as a producer, Youngsta’s had a strong influence on the progression of the sound known as Dubstep so far. Having cut his teeth with a VIP remix of Loefah’s “Twisup” in 2005, Youngsta has preferred to focus on DJing before rushing into production himself. More recently, he’s linked with Seven and N-Type in the studio and is looking forward to working with the likes of Icicle and SP:MC in the near future.

Youngsta also maintains a weekly radio show on Rinse FM. With his focus clearly on the music, he regularly features guest MCs including former host Task and more recently Toast and SP:MC. In 2008, Youngsta teamed up with station boss Geeneus to mix and compile the “I Love Dubstep” double CD, highlighting the instrumental role of Rinse FM in some of the scene’s finest moments to date.

In 2009, Youngsta released several collaborations with Seven of which “Massai Mara” b/w “The Story” (by Seven & N-Type featuring Youngsta) appeared on N-Type’s Wheel & Deal label. These tracks and others, including “Who’s There?”, have been causing a massive buzz on Youngsta’s Rinse FM show and a single for Tempa from the duo is in the works.

Kryptic Minds ( Osiris Music, Swamp81, Tectonic, UK )

Ten years since they formed, 2009 marks a turning point in the disturbed mental explorations of Kryptic Minds. Having built an enviable back catalogue of dark, deadly Drum ‘n’ Bass, the production duo of Si & Leon aka Kryptic Minds have quickly established a foothold in the exploding global Dubstep scene. As the flagship artists on Loefah DMZ’s label Swamp 81, their 12”s and album “One of Us” continue Dubstep’s tradition for stone-cold halfstep, flying against the dancefloor’s natural urges for momentum and release.

Instead they unleash fearsome sub bass assaults that lead listeners into an edgy otherworld and have become staples of sets by halfstep innovator Youngsta as well as Loefah himself. Look out for upcoming releases across some of Dubstep’s leading labels including Tectonic, Disfigured Dubz plus their own Osiris Music UK.

Kryptic Minds, then just Si, first gained prominence in the Drum ‘n’ Bass scene when Andy C’s Ram subsidiary Frequency released ‘The Truth’, quickly earning itself anthem status. The track’s success brought Si new creative opportunities: it was at this time Si and Leon Switch began a long and fruitful production partnership. Together the duo released tracks on some of the Drum ‘n’ Bass scene’s flagship labels, such as Penetration, Renegade Hardware, Tech Freak, Freak Recordings, and Goldie’s seminal Metalheadz.

They also established their own label Defcom Records, on which they released 27 singles, including ‘Take the Pain Away’ and ‘No Escape,’ as well as their debut album, the Drum ‘n’ Bass opus “Lost All Faith”. 2007 saw it declared by ATM magazine as one of the best drum & bass albums of all time. It was also at this time they set up new label Osiris Music uk, to release a wide range of music.

Inspired by Mala Digital Mystikz, Loefah and Burial 2008 saw the duo re-discover their musical faith through Dubstep, following the establishing of creative alliances with half-step dons Youngsta and Loefah. One of Loefah’s classic’s “Root” received the Kryptic Minds remix treatment. They also played at one of Dubstep’s most hallowed institutions, DMZ. The future’s dark, the future’s Kryptic Minds!

SP:MC ( Club Autonomic, UK )

Within the last 5 years, SP:MC has established himself as one of the busiest and most innovative MCs in both drum & bass and dubstep. As well working closely with front-runners DJ Friction, D-Bridge, Breakage and Youngsta, he holds residencies at leading nights including Shogun Audio, A Bunch of Cuts and Club Autonomic.

His passion for the music undoubtedly comes through on the mic. With a unique flow and the confidence to leave space for the beats to breathe, it’s clear that SP is an MC who only compliments and never competes with the DJ.

With a deep understanding of the music he’s so passionate about, SP has proved himself to be a talented producer in his own right. Recent releases on Tempa (alongside Joker D) and Shogun LTD (with Jubei and Dakuan as Code3) have demonstrated both quality and diversity, whatever the tempo. With another 12″ on Tempa plus a Code3 release on D-Bridge’s Exit Records, 2009 is yet another big year.

Stamina MC ( Digital Soundboy,, UK )

A multi-talented natural performer, effortlessly combining the roles of vocalist, host and MC with a massive stage-presence, Stamina’s well earned reputation speaks for itself. He‘s a touring veteran and lives up to his name absolutely, making regular appearances across the globe in Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Japan, UK, Europe and beyond. Whether alongside Shy FX, DJ Marky, DJ Fu & Jungle Drummer or a whole of top DJs, Stamina’s high energy performances are certain to raise the crowd with an outstanding range of lyrics, harmonies and freestyles to match the occasion.

A total professional, his love of music always takes centre stage and shines through whether performing live, on radio or in the studio. Stamina’s unswerving commitment to the Drum ‘n’ Bass scene at a grass roots level really sets him apart from the rest and has won him the support of a broad base of fans. Representing on London’s Rinse FM with a weekly show, he’s also a moderator for Drum and Bass Arena’s online forum plus a producer and a DJ in his own right.
Grimelock ( Stainage )

Grimelock have been steadily building a name for them throughout Europe as Belgium’s finest bass music export. Coming from the early Belgian jungle scene, Wallace and Kalib created Grimelock in 2004. MC’s Maëlan and Dynamic joined the crew shortly after to fill the shows with their energy.

Grimelock brings on stage a unique, explosive and fast-paced combination of dubstep, garage, electro and hip hop in which are blended own productions, exclusive dub-plates and timeless classics. Add to this the raw live energy of the MC’s and don’t be surprised if you find yourself bouncing, sweating and screaming for more.

In 2008 they set up Stainage Records, a label aiming to promote Belgian productions worldwide. They were also responsible for the infamous Stainage parties that brought all the biggest Dubstep names in Brussels ages before the hype.

Science ( Untitled )

This Antwerp based duo (Dennis Nesen & Maarten Dekort) is one of our country’s finest. They will soon be releasing their debut EP through the Untitled! Record label and their music is on high rotation on all the major radio-stations such as Studio Brussels and Sub FM.

At the young age of 20 they’ve already played alongside pioneers such as Mala, Coki, Loefah, Hatcha, Pinch and many more. Guaranteed bassweight!
