Issue 137: Work Them: Ramadanman leads a new crop of producers into 2011.
In this first issue of 2011, the young David Kennedy (a.k.a. Ramadanman and Pearson Sound) leads London's still-burgeoning, post-funky bass scene into 2011, with the likes of fellow UK natives Lone and Elijah & Skilliam following close in tow. Dancehall killer David Rodigan shoots us an email, Horsepower Productions and Demdike Stare show us around their studios, and we visit South Africa for a taste of the house scene before chatting with the likes of Games, Jacques Greene, and Matthewdavid, who all bring the heat for the chilly months. Read about them here, or view the entire issue online at Issuu.
