Arguably the least known but most experienced and hardy of the Magnetic Man crew. Artwork has been on the scene for a long time. He put out Benga’s first ever record way back in 2002, on his Big Apple Records im-print and shop and employed both Skream and Benga to work for him. Amongst the industries big names, Artwork is nothing short of a legend and we can quite safely lay the birth of Dubstep, as it was, sqaurely at his door. Sooooo thanks very much!

The lecture went down at Rbma 2011 in Madrid. Famed for giving informative, well conducted and intimate lecture/interviews with some of the biggest and most respected names in music, this one is no different.

The video is a long piece but if you have any interest in the origins of the dubstep scene, Skreams drinking habits, or how Artwork got where he is now then definitely worth a watch.

I can honestly say I never thought I’d hear twist em out again. After the battering that Skibadee, in a weak attempt at a mainstream crossover mc sess, gave the track it was probably a good thing that the track was put to sleep.

Sometimes things have a funny way of telling you to fck off and smash any preconceptions or happy ideals you might have settled on, it’s almost like the world doesn’t actually mould itself to accomodate each of our needs. What a cock.

Upon scanning through the latest list of Rbma rare gemstones, my eyes skipped, did a flip and shot up into the back of my head, rolled all the way around, became blood shot, protruded a good inch out of my face and then re set themselves. I like Dillinja, I like dnb and I like jungle. Anyone who complains about not being able to dance to it is either hopelessly lost and probably can’t dance to anything other than shitty house anyway or just hasn’t experienced a proper night of dnb rave ups. Oh and they are probably a dick as well (just kidding I have great love and admiration for all people and things, including cans of capitalism and saucers full of lies).

So in summation, if you like DnB then put this through your head holes and skank out like back in the days when Fabric was good and DnB nights were busy even when they were being held on a Wednesday
