One of our ‘ones to watch’ lands on Exit Records.

English producer Fixate first came on our radar earlier this year after being included in our Drum & Bass producers to watch list.

Tipped by dBridge as one of the most interesting upcomers in the scene, it was Fixate’s flair for rhythm that first attracted the veteran. He also told us that the track ‘Percussive Aggressive’ would show just what he meant. You can now hear it for yourself with an exclusive stream.

‘Percussive Aggressive’ is taken from Fixate’s debut EP for dBridge’s Exit Records, titled Throwback Therapy.

The five-track EP is released April 27 on 12″, and can be bough digitally on Bandcamp.

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Big Terrific @ Warsaw
Williamsburg's long-running comedy night comes to an end with two big shows at Warsaw. Original hosts Jenny Slate, Gabe Liedman and Max Silvestri are all here and Joe Mande will be on hand for both shows as well. As to who else may show up at these sold-out farewells, we'll just have to wait and see.

Mobb Deep, Funkmaster Flex, Alchemist, Smif-N-Wessun @ BB King's
The legendary Queensbridge rap duo Mobb Deep celebrated the 20th anniversary of their seminal 1995 album, The Infamous, yesterday, and today they're blessing their home city with a show. It's a great lineup all around, with veteran DJs Funkmaster Flex and Alchemist on board, plus another '90s-era NYC duo, Smif-N-Wessun.

They Might Be Giants @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
This is the fourth of five shows at MHOW that They Might Be Giants are doing this year, and tonight's is a celebration of their recently-relaunched Dial-a-Song service as well as a release party for their new album, Glean.

Blur to play Jimmy Fallon next week
Apr 25, 2015 11:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

Blur previously said they would only consider touring America if their new album was well-received commercially. While fans have to wait a few more days before they can get their hands on a copy of The Magic Whip, the band went ahead and booked a Transatlantic flight anyways.

The Britpop icons will serve as the musical guest for the April 30th episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. It marks their first stateside performance since they headlined Coachella in 2013.

No word on any additional American dates, but Blur has lined up a whole bunch for other parts of the globe. You can see their current tour docket below.

The Magic Whip arrives April 28th through Warner Bros. Records. It’s currently


Manic Street Preachers played 'The Holy Bible' & more at Webster Hall (pics, setlist)

Manic Street Preachers @ Webster Hall 4/23/2015

Two decades later, Edwards's psycho-sociopathic vision seems prophetic, but the music surrounding these words is another story, and often one of transcendence. This tour is a celebration of its very nature. Webster Hall's audience was ready for that and sang along on those catchy, cutthroat choruses: "We're all just walking abortions."

[Nicky] Wire leapt and paced, pounding out big round notes. Bradfield pogoed about the stage and never missed a solo or buzzsaw riff. And Moore, an underrated drummer in the annals of "World's Best Rock Drummer Ever" polls, took command of the emphatic tempo changes dotting the songs. His drumming on "Archives of Pain," which switches from frenzied mania to calm, and throughout the slowing stop-start pulse of "4st. 7lbs." was borderline cinematic. - [Village Voice]

Manic Street Preachers are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their epic third album, The Holy Bible, playing it on a short North American tour. This was the UK trio's first NYC show in six years. In addition to playing The Holy Bible in full, they followed with a set of material from the rest of their career including 2014's acclaimed Futurology. Setlist and pictures from Webster Hall (including ones of opener Jennie Vee) are in this post and continue below...

Ghosts in a Badly-Oiled Machine: The Mechanical Techno of Graham Dunning
Apr 25, 2015 10:27am | Fact Magazine

In a south-facing corner of a concrete live-work space in East London, a bottom-of-the-range Numark turntable struggles heroically to support a teetering tower of records, all spinning together around an improvised spindle extension, churning out some dirty, minimal four-to-the-floor.

At the foot of the pile, the Numark
