A lot has been said about Magnetic Man, the trio made up of dubstep’s leading lights Skream, Benga and Artwork. It was Artwork who penned the dubstep anthem Red, a tune so ahead of its time the genre didn’t yet have a name. He began to mentor two errant teenagers – Benga and Skream, the latter’s remix of La Roux’s In For The Kill giving dubstep a worldwide audience. Having created a genre of music that has taken hold of youth culture in Britain, anticipation has been building to fever pitch as the band set about unleashing onto the world their debut album.

"Magnetic Man live up to the hype with their mash-up of techno and dubstep" Daily Star (Kim Dawson's Playlist)
"[Combine] the brooding, epic, electronic anthems...then the brain-scrambling bangers with waves of bass and intricate beats...with the retina-scorching light show that accompanies the lads' efforts...and you have a compelling, unique and disorientating new outfit. But not for the faint-hearted." The Sun
