The Ilictronix Guide To Dubstep, Part 3: Magnetic Man

Become a pioneer of the London dubstep scene? Check.

Bring dubstep out of London to the whole UK with crossover hit "Midnight Request Line"? Check.

Bring dubstep out of the UK to the whole world with a stomping remix of La Roux's chart topper? Check.

Form the first dubstep supergroup with Benga and Artwork and take the genre to strange new places? CHECK.

Magnetic Man is the latest item from Skream's to-do list. Him and his long-time dubstep buddy Benga have teamed up with producer Artwork (no, I'm pretty sure it's not the same Artwork who did that awesome remix of Heads We Dance) to take dubstep to dizzy new heights and save it from an eternity of piss-poor, by-numbers squarewave bass wobbles, showing these wannabes how it's done. I've posted this tune in a lower bitrate, because the EP has only just come out, so if you want it in better quality, I suggest you go buy it from iTunes.

And a bonus, because Nite requested it.

Keep it magnetic,

dubstep is horrible. it all sounds the same with its stupid little whomps. the fact that you posted a dubstep guide has made this blog drop a few notches in my book.
