It’s the day before Thanksgiving and things are looking great as we enter into the holiday season. I have a new trailer for Porter Robinson’s mini-documentary, info on Magnetic Man’s next album, Aus music invading Fabric, M83 on Fallon, and the Mixmag drugs survey, all conveniently packed into today’s GDD™ Morning Update. Please enjoy after the jump.
Yes! Just the day we’ve been waiting for, Friday. We’re bringing in the weekend strong with the most packed GDD™ Morning Update ever. Rather than listing a more specific overview of the content, you need to go straight to the articles since there is so much great content. See it all after the jump…
If I was obligated to do a one-word-festival-preview this would just say “INSANITY,” but fortunately for you I get to give you the real dirty dirt on what’s going down at the NOS Events Center this Saturday. Compliments of the crew over at Insomniac, this weekend’s 16th annual Nocturnal Festival is not to be missed. Even though it’s a bit off the beaten path out in San Bernardino, I for one totally love the set-up and location, and apparently so do about 40,000 others every September. The stages are set up in massive hangars, spacious tents, and something zuuper special and unique for the massive trance arena trucked in all the way from NYC.
For months now, we’ve been waiting for the new record from Magnetic Man; the world’s first dubstep supergroup comprised of Benga, Skream and Artwork. On Saturday night they threw down an Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, which features a bunch of tracks off their forthcoming album, due out on October 4th. Due to the number of dubplates and unreleased material in the mix, there’s still a grip of tracks unidentified – if you know what any are, add them to the comments below.

Last week Skream released the third and final Freeizm EP, which in my opinion is the best of the lot. Metal Mouth, Dr. Who Dub, Rollin’ & the Geiom tracks are fire. Check it:
From opening deejays blowing out siderooms with “Warp 1.9″ to its use in mainstream music (see Lady Gaga and DJ Felli Fel), I’m sure we’re all a little burnt out on hearing the Hoover synth. However, Afro Warrior Benga worked his magic on this tune from London electro rapper Example and turned it into a serious headbanger and guaranteed bottom shaker. If you haven’t done so, be sure to cop Benga’s Phaze One EP on Beatport or elsewhere.
