CMU Approved

Approved: Magnetic Man – I Need Air

By | Published on Monday 12 July 2010

You can tell dubstep’s come a long way when it’s possible for the genre to have its own supergroup. Magnetic Man are dubstep’s biggest name and remixer du jour Skream, along with two of the men responsible for shaping the genre’s sound, Benga and Artwork. Their debut single, ‘I Need Air’, is set for release on 26 Jul via Sony/Columbia and features vocals from Angela Hunte, who co-wrote Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ ‘New York State Of Mind’.

The video for the track (linked below) was filmed at the trio’s recent live performance at Manchester’s Parklife festival, and gives a taste of what to expect from their forthcoming tour in October – flashing lights and anthemic dance music aplenty. The single comes backed with remixes from Redlight and Digital Soundboy, both of which are also worth checking out.
