Jeff Benga & Dave Skream have combined their mighty forces with another "producer", Peter Artwork to produce a new side project called Magnetic Man. This week they've a minimal looking 12" out that I don't understand the title of - The Cyberman EP It may be one of those conceptual things I don't understand as i'm from Bradford & only "get" pies & racing dogs. The first track has a stepping electroid feel, with robotic vocal flanging & jerky metallic synths. Skream puts in some of his trademark blips & wobbly bits & i'm sure they all contribute to the overall sheen of the track. Our Ant suggests it's a promising starter but a bit of a "non developer". I think the artwork is the most impressive thing although the lead tune may well work as an interesting DJ tool to alter the mood of a set.....Jury's out.
