Magnetic Man - Again!!!!

This super group is just that, SUPER! They show no signs of stopping and with every new bit I hear from them I get more and more into their sound. This to me is huge because Im not the biggest fan of any of these individuals solo but when they come together to form like Voltron in the shape of the one and only MAGNETIC MAN there is no stopping them! Their latest effort with the vocals of Katy B is called "Perfect Stranger". This has anthem written all over it! Listen and love below.

Monday Mixture

The weekend has come to an end. Big thanks to everyone who made it out to the Dubstep vs. Jungle show at starlite featuring 16 bit! The night was a huge success and the Oh Snap crew threw it down as always!! Now for some new beats to make monday seem a little sweeter!

Magnetic Man did an essential mix for Radio1 the other day. It's a little heavy for my taste at times.. but there are definitely some quality tracks in it as well. Anyway, take a listen and decide for yourself what you think!

Magnetic Man Radio 1 Essential Mix July 24, 2010 (hotfile download)

Moving along.. we have a two sided mixtape from French electro producer Brodinski. Have yet to listen to the electro side, but the hip hop side is dope. Read the description below!

"Brodi’s newest endeavour is ‘The Best Of Everything’, a two-paged love letter to music delivered in the shape of a free mixtape. On side B, the natural born DJ delivers a hard-hitting techno set, showing of his finesse and seemingly effortless flexibility. On side A, however, we hear him furiously cutting and pasting between hip-hop and old school rap – this collaboration with his good friend DJ Orgasmic shows a different side of the so-called techno prodigy. “I love hip-hop, there’s so much good productions coming out, every day I discover something exciting"

Knowones Knowledge is Key

After much sifting through newspapers and online postings, I finally got a new job! Yippy!

Do we all really understand what this means? It means that Ten-O can start buying music again! Starting from the top of my music search, I turned to my favorite artists for fresh, enticing sounds.

A classic favorite of mine is a gentleman out of San Fran. producing under the guise of Knowa Knowone, or 2K on his blaring remixes. Really, this guy seems to be firing on all cylinders these days. His tunes are deep, layered and funky, all done with catchy licks that get the dance floor stomping.

Providing his touch in the realms of Dubstomp and Glitch, I present to you, Knowa Knowone!

If you're reading this, you've made it half way through the week. CONGRATULATIONS! Now get down to Brixx for some cheap wings, beer, and heavy bass. If you're not in Edmonton, here are some tunes to get you through the remainder of the week :)

For the d&b heads... lyrical madness and a sick beat. What more could you ask for?

Bonus: Digital Sound Boy brings us this MASSIVE remix of Magnetic Man's "I Need Air"

heard this tune a few weeks ago while listening to the Kastle Essential Studio mix. I'm in love. So catchy. Kastle is an american producer whom I've been quite impressed with lately. His characteristic low, gut wrenching basslines alongside nice vocals and complex melodies make for a real treat for the ears :)

Kenny Meez vs. Major Lazer

Mr. Kenny Meez of Philadelphia's Federation Sound comes more then correct on this remix of Major Lazers "Cant Stop Now". The original tune features Mr. Vegas and Jovi Rockwell. Kenny Meez keeps the vocals intact and drops a nice little riddim under the tune slightly leaning more toward the bashment side of things to keep the dance hot.

Ms. Dynamite iz xplodin' up!

This Ms Dynamite is blowin' up my speakers big time right now! Ms Dynamite (originally known as Lady Dynamite) has been in and out of the spotlight since 2002. She was first known for her vocals on the UK garage track "Booo!". She's also released "A Little Deeper" in 2002 and "Judgement Days" in 2005. In 2006 her explosive temper had her arrested for punching a male police officer in the face whilst in custody. She then quickly disappeared from the public eye. A few years later she decided dabble in UK reality television but one's got to admit it that her musical career is probably far better than appearing on "Hell's Kitchen", although I'm sure she could make a mean risotto.

This is still hot to touch, so put on your oven mitts for this one:
What You Talkin Bout - RedLight ft. Ms Dynamite

And if you don't already Wile out, now is the time for a taste:
