[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

The big name in UK dubstep at the moment is Magnetic Man, particularly known for the hit featuring Katy B, “Perfect Stranger.” The US debut of their self-titled album was released digitally in April but the physical copies will be out next week on the 10th. Magnetic Man’s Benga, Skream and Artwork are three producers/DJ’s with serious dubstep credentials who met over a love of pulverizing beats at the now-defunct mecca of the genre, Big Apple Records. Together, Magnetic Man infuses the dubstep landscape with melodic pop grooves that play counterpoint to hyped-up synth and fat bass lines that apply pressure like silky-scaled boa constrictors.

You can stream Magnetic Man in its entirety at Popmatters or In Your Speakers.

In mid March, British singer/songwriter Katy B debuted her album in the UK, On a Mission. Katy is most commonly known for her collaborations with dubstep artist, Benga. Breaking through the age of auto tune, On a Mission not only showcases Katy B’s impeccable song writing abilities, but also her raw vocal talent.  In pop diva tradition, Katy takes the most fresh underground sounds and turns them into catchy club hits.  On a Mission has not been released in the US but will be soon.
