"The Anna Wintour of Music" - Benji B started his climb to success earlier than most of his peers in the industry. His first step was landing a job with legendary radio DJ Gilles Peterson on Kiss FM at just 16. From there it wasn’t long until he had his own show on BBC Radio 1Xtra. Today Benji holds down a weekly slot on Radio 1 using the platform to introduce listeners to underground electronic music from around the world.
Novelist’s skills as an MC and producer have in recent years earned him a reputation as the ‘new face of grime’. This is unsurprising, given his significant airplay on pirate radio stations, the later attention from BBC 1Xtra and Rinse, his MOBO nomination for Best Grime Act in 2014, and his work with the influential imprint Oil Gang and collaboration with grime legend Skepta.
Korean-American producer, vocalist and DJ Kathy Lee, professionally known as Yaeji, has gone from hanging around on the Brooklyn party circuit to festival stage and magazine cover star in just two short years. From her 2016 breakout–a playful cover of Mall Grab’s Guap on Nick Sylvester’s Godmode label, to her performance at Coachella’s packed out Yuma Tent this year, Lee’s skyrocket to global success has been particularly gratifying to watch, when it’s someone who seems to be so unapologetically herself.
When Simon Green first burst onto the scene in 2000 with the ‘Animal Magic’ LP it was a time when words like ‘downtempo’ were frequently thrown about by music journalists and experimental turntablism and crate-dug samples were all the rage among producers. While Bonobo’s immediately recognizable sound has always been indebted to these traditions it has also matured over time into favouring the organic unpredictability of live instrumentation over the post-modern collage of sampling.
On stage de Witte charms techno heads with her natural ease, composure and expertise. Making it almost look easy to play the biggest stages in the world. Her own studio productions have proven to be intense, addictive and downright impressive, captivating sounding labels like Novamute and Mary Go Wild. The future looks bright for Charlotte de Witte.
Chris Manak for those not in the know is the guy who started the legendary Stones Throw label back in the early 90s with his late buddy Charizma. Now enjoying worldwide success and unanimous critical reverence and musical home to artists like J Dilla Dam-Funk and Madlib are in a uniquely favorable position on the label indie market due to PB Wolf’s uncompromising artistic integrity.
Here’s a little history lesson for those under the age of 20: During the 2000s, Ed Banger Records, helmed by the diligent and aptly named Busy P, were lighting up dance floors across the world with their neon-tinted, funk-filled, distorted take on the proud, French, electronic music tradition through acts like Justice, Mr. Oizo and DJ Mehdi.
Richie Hawtin is a genuine original. His critical acclaim spans the creative realm of the fine art community to the technological vanguard. Meanwhile, as a performing artist, he is constantly pushing conceptual frontiers, moving things forward, welcoming as many as he can to ideas and experiences that would have seemed pure science fiction when he began his career.
Marcel Dettmann AKA the king of Berghain states that techno for him is a ‘grundgefühl’ - which can be roughly translated to ‘a fundamental feeling.’ In light of the fact that he produces DJs and promotes only the most exquisite and progressive forms of electronic music on the planet this makes quite a lot of sense. We suspect that this fundamental feeling plays a significant part in the knowing effortlessness with which he carries his trade.
Scottish producer Rodaidh Mcdonald currently works for the legendary XL Recordings where he’s been at the helm of some pretty remarkable records. Ranging from the quiet intensity of Daughter’s ‘If You Leave’ and Savages’ manifest-like debut ‘Silence Yourself’ to King Krule’s critically acclaimed ‘6 Feet Benath the Moon' and The XX’s world-shaking self-titled album Rodaidh’s unique sonic touch permeates a sizable piece of contemporary music’s cutting edge.
There’s isn’t really much Trevor Jackson hasn’t done. A respected remixer selector and graphic designer the London-based creative and former boss of the legendary Output label is constantly finding new remarkable ways of expressing his arresting artistic vision. Whether it’s exhibitions that romanticize physical music mediums in poignant new ways or record sleeves that effortlessly articulate the spirit of rock ‘n roll Trevor is forever one step ahead of the game.
I liked that the TMA-2 system got me away from compromise - rather than finding the best fit I could actually look for the right fit.
I’ve dealt with my share of AIAIAI’s and can personally attest to their quality build and sound.
The TMA-2s can be easily customized in configurations ranging from sub-$150 cans perfect for Beats lovers who want to step up their audio game, all the way to $250+ monitors aimed at pros.
No matter which speaker and earpad combination you choose, the sound quality and isolation will always be on-point.
TMA-2 are extremely light and the most comfortable headphones I can remember wearing.
