MUSIC@LXG: Magnetic Man_Getting Nowhere

The beauty of Electronica is simply that its an ever-evolving genre of music - so there's always something new; always some musical boundary being crossed...

From the early pioneering days of Kraftwerk, the synthesizer drove dance music into a place where no-one else had ever gone. Everything you could possibly create on a live physical instrument was now available at the touch of a synthesizer key or pad. The new kids went mad and experimented with beats and samples and loops, and in the Eighties and Nineties, Depeche Mode brought Electronica into the mainstream - and many of us would never be the same again.

This continuing evolution produced House, Ambient, and Trip Hop. The sounds of Massive Attack invaded our brains and found permanent residence in the darker recesses of our minds.

And now in the early days of the new millennium, it's been the dawn of Dubstep. And today, Magnetic Man epitomizes the genre...

Here the collective of 3 DJs are at the top of their game, in collaboration with John Legend.

Epic. Haunting. Anthemic - Magnetic Man:
