Every time I see Magnetic Man, I think it's going to be The Magnetic Fields, and I get all excited. And then I realize it's not. And then I'm not.

When do you think they will play? I would love for them to close, and it would make sense if they are going to have some elaborate visual component... but judging by the poster it will be Chem Bros? Or do you think they would put Chem Bros on the main?

I'm predicting in the Sahara it will go Sasha-Mag Man-Chem Bros

I thought the album itself was poorly mixed and most of the tracks sucked. I could see how they would be able to mix a strong live set though.....

I wonder why they aren't billed as Magnetic Man at Ultra?

magnetic man isnt going to be at ultra. skream and benga are going to be there.
2 totally different sets

grannock
02-23-2011, 03:20 PM
So every DJ in the world is at Ultra but that guy cant make the trip? Doesn't make any sense... but after listening to the essential mix, I gotta say it was 100x better than their album.

303dubbin
02-23-2011, 03:50 PM
yea but think about it man, we get their US debut performance.

That makes little sense as well, but SHM can demand a huge paycheck, perhaps Coachella didn't want to pony up.

They are playing some afterparty at Ultra for like 250$ a head.

Huh? That's kinda silly. Skream plays Skream, Benga & MM tracks. Benga plays Skream, Benga & MM tracks. MM plays Skream, Benga & MM tracks. Skream & Benga play Skream, Benga & MM tracks. It's all the same shit whether it's a pop dubstep dj or pop dubstep group of the same people.

It'll sound essentially the same.

303dubbin
02-23-2011, 05:33 PM
yea but skream and benga's sets will have a lot more variety in them than just those tracks
a magnetic man set will be essentially a lot of MM tacks with a few benga and skream tracks.

but i see your point, not totally different

I have seen most of the electronic/DJ/IDM/House acts at Coachella since the first year: Nightmares on Wax/Plaid/Underworld/Chemical Brothers/Orb/Tricky/Orbital/Etienne De Crecy/Aphex Twin/Bassnectar/Daft Punk/Kraftwerk/!!!/LCD Soundsystem/Bjork/Autechre/Aeroplane/Tiesto (YUCK!)/Paul Van Dyk (DOUBLE YUCK)/ Moby/Crystal Method/Prodigy/Scissor Sisters/Basement Jaxx/Groove Armada/Roni Size/Fatboy Slim/u-Ziq/Amon Tobin/LTJ Bukem/Ladytron/Fexlix/Fischerspooner/Plastikman/Adam Freeland/Air/La Roux/Passion Pit/Flying Lotus/2ManyDJ's/The Juan McLean/Audio Bullys and on and on and on.

The thing that I don't get about ETIENNE DE CRECY and MAGNETIC MAN is that they show up with these great impressive lightshows and sets and then play really boring fucking music. I can't remember one memorable song played during Etienne's set and yet I remember that damn scaffolding and lighting grid. So fucking what, I'm not a crow that gets distracted by shiny objects - just play some fucking brilliant music and we will have a great time dancing to it. Don't distract me with you lights and your stage.

I feel like, after watching Magnetic Man on youtube, they are pretty much in the same category. Haven't heard one track that grabs my attention. It's pretty much shit - and now that anybody can own a copy of the Aberdeen - there will be more crab acts showing up than usual. God do I miss PLAID and AUTECHRE and APHEX TWIN and UNDERWORLD. This new shit is a snooze fest.

Listen to the MM essential mix, they kinda explain that their live shows have a lot of improv and are thrown together on the spot. If this is true, that is pretty interesting.

The essential mix is 2 hours of very nice dubstep. It totally blows their album away. The also say that the essential mix is basically a Skream and Benga live set.

i decided not to go to coachella largely because of MM

seriously nightmarish.

02-27-2011, 12:33 PM
Prank on the mainstream? lol. I guess that statement holds some truth because of the fact that the "mainstream" dubstep sound in the US is total crazy brostep. And crap like Bassnectar and Skrillex. Ugh.

If you've only been listening to their Youtube songs first, Do one. and second download The Bug, K Dance and Mad then tell me you won't be going mad for this at 2am after a day of beautiful music amongst friends and drinks.

We might get some John Legend on the stage at well...

From Gigwise:

"You've got a new single with John Legend how did that come around?

Artwork - That was through EMI and our publisher listened to the track and said it had a lot of soul and said that he was going to get us an artist that would match. He said how about John Legend? He went and recorded his vocal and then a week later it was all done and in our hands. We've never met him but we're hoping he will come on tour with us.

Skream - It would be great if he was at the Coachella show, that would be really amazing."

Their live show may be interesting, but their essential mix and album don't do anything that is groundbreaking. I'd be at this set, but to say that it will be the best of the weekend is a little hopeful.

incorrect, these days i avoid almost all "dubstep" "shows" because of the sheer numbers of fucking idiots there are there, ie, teensters who love e and magnetic man

i will check the songs suggested, i really have only put myself through 2 of their songs

great fit for coachella this year though like totally.

I hadn't heard of these guys 'till the poster came out. After checking out their album and, especially, listening to their essential mix has got me really pumped. I have a feeling they will be one of my favorite EDM acts of the weekend.

The Sahara is where I will be spending my entire Friday night. That's for sure.

I never heard of them either till the poster came out. I checked out a few YouTube video's and I am now pumped to see them. I got their album and i like it. Also looks like their light show is ridiculous. Anyone know any other good mixes by them other than their album that I could check out?

Every time I see Magnetic Man, I think it's going to be The Magnetic Fields, and I get all excited. And then I realize it's not. And then I'm not.

Magnetic Field Who?

Seriously, as a recent Dubstep fan (but a fan of "Dub" music since the 90's) I find Magnetic Man to be at the peak of the genre.

Yes, I've heard Caspa (he's good) as well as new guys like Excision and Skrillex (likely a whole other thread). Nonetheless, I feel their tracks are worth a few listens while Magnetic Man is something I'd come back to over time.

i think we should continue to ridicule this guy. he is a pretty huge idiot. I'd expect caspa or some other dubstep artist doing a dj set to drop that if this was last coachella. that songs pretty played out now, incredible though it may be. check out the video as well. its amazing.
