Playing a London Festival Exclusive, this is what Magentic Man had to say:
“SW4 is an important gig for us! It’s on our home turf, the atmosphere is always incredible and we can get a taxi home at the end. We can’t wait to tear it up in front of our friends and family. This will also be the only chance to catch us in the great outdoors, in the capital this year. So it’s going to be very special indeed – see you there!” (Skream)
After pioneering the dubstep sound from their Big Apple Records HQ in Croydon, Skream, Benga and Artwork formed Magnetic Man. As with many a superhero, their lair no longer exists. But the trio have moved onto bigger conquests, creating an inimitable dark and bassy sound that has rumbled its way to core gigs worldwide. Having played Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds and Manchester’s Parklife last year, they were handpicked by Deadmau5 to support his sell out UK tour – with mind bending shows in Glasgow, Manchester, Coventry and London’s Earls Court.
Studio wise, Magnetic Man are a dominant force. Debut release ‘I Need Air’ was followed up by massive collaborations with Katy B, Ms Dynamite and John Legend – affirming their creative nous and versatility. With October’s debut album released to rave reviews, they have earned a reputation amongst the production elite. With ongoing support from names such as Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Mistajam and Pete Tong, Magnetic Man’s live show is simply devastating. Set to destroy SW4 2011 with their brand of mutant basslines, don’t miss the magnificent Magnetic Man as they blow up our Main Stage this summer.
