[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/93AU5IkvDPY" 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.

Jessie J’s New Release: Who You Are + “Nobody’s Perfect (Netsky Remix)”

Jessie J‘s album Who You Are was released on Universal Republic this week, and unsurprisingly it rose to the top of the charts. You may already know that we jumped on the Jessie wagon early and we’re proud; see The Boombox Series Part 1 – “Who You Are” and Part 2 – “Price Tag”. A few days after we shot The Boombox Series with Arcade 44, her video for “Do It Like A Dude” came out and she blew up. By popular demand, her release date was moved up to this week. Stomp stomp she arrived!
