New UK music .....

New UK music...........

I won't beat around the bush. If you're a fan of electronic music at all then you really should check out young British producer Fantastic Mr Fox - aka Stephen Gomberg - who is quickly making a name for himself with his intricately programmed, hip-hop infused "post-dubstep".

This prodigiously talented producer / remixer / DJ isn't long out of Manchester Uni but can already count The XX amongst his rapidly growing fanbase (he recently got back from supporting them on their three week tour across the States) and now his new EP Evelyn (on Black Acre) is solidifying
his reputation for beautifully constructed drums and vocal samples that are nimbly rearranged to suggest new meanings. The title track in particular sees him experimenting with the dark art of infectious crowd-pleasing which, should he pursue it, could see him explode next year. Get acquainted immediately.
