New Magnetic Man – ‘Fire’ feat. Ms Dynamite

The 4th of October sees the release of Magnetic Man’s (aka Skream, Benga and Artwork) debut album and a few previews have been released to our eager ears. This track ‘Fire’ with Ms Dynamite is exactly what it says it is, pure fire, and has got us writing to YouTube to request they install a Rewind button right now. Check their ‘YouTube Takeover’ video here, where they talk about the release and things like ‘upside down bass’ and their love of Zapp and Roger. Magnetic Man a go burn dem!

New Chris Cunningham Video

Chris Cunningham has teamed up with Gil Scott Heron for his first video in four years, accompanying the track ‘New York is Killing Me’. It’s no ‘Come To Daddy’, but it sure is creepy. It just opened at the MoMA so if New York isn’t killing you, you can head there or watch it here.

Sunday Jam: Mavado – Pon Di Ting

New jam from Mavado on the Split Personality riddim by the excellent, synth-loving Seanizzle. This one’s for the slow motion wine.

Mumdance EP

Mad Decent’s Mumdance has moved out of the realm of the remix and firmly into his own original productions, and he is now due to release his Mum Decent EP on October 5th. It’s a 3-track record featuring grime MC Badness on the soca crazy ‘Sacrifice’ and vocalist Esser on the even more tropical ‘Don’t Forget Me Now’. To top it off, the other track is named ‘Smasher’.

To celebrate they’re giving away a nice cover of the garage classic ‘Battle’ by Wookie. It’s probably impossible to ever reach the tuffness of the original, but it’s always a pleasure to be reminded of the 2-step gem.

Preview the EP tracks here.

Dogs N Bumpz feat. MC Zulu

Despite it seeming like the worst possible moment to start up a record label, everyone’s doing it: Masala and Ghetto Bassquake just transformed from blogs/club nights/radio shows into labels and now London’s Carnival kings, Oi You (who’ve been putting on their secret soundsystems and warehouse parties for the last couple of years), have joined ‘em in labeldom. Their first release is the drum heavy ‘Carnival Madness’ from West London’s Dogz N Bumps, with vocals from the ever-excellent MC Zulu. Alongside the dutty carnival madness, the animation in the newly dropped video is incredible.
