30hz in studio

30Hz in his studio

Finally, we have 30Hz set ready for you to enjoy. The whole thing was recorded live and direct by Ollie 303 from http://www.southwestunderground.net

Head over to the music page and click the link to grab it. There is no track listing, as most of the tracks are not out yet!!

Thanks to 30Hz for making it possible.

Watch out for more live sets from Tom Real, High Eight vs That Girl Dj and Poface-Killa in the coming weeks…..


We celebrated our 4th birthday last Saturday and we were joined by Tom Real, 30Hz, High Eight and That Girl DJ. All of them had been down before, so they knew our crowd and knew that we liked it hard, bassy and as filthy as possible. All of the DJs on the night had headlined before at least once already. This was Tom Real’s 3rd time down and High Eight’s 7th or 8th time!!

For us it was a dream lineup and judging by the amount of people that turned up, we were not alone in thinking this way. The event went out live over http://www.southwestunderground.net and we broke their concurrent live listeners record… We broke our own attendance record too.

High Eight and That Girl DJ started off proceedings, whipping the crowd into a frency and making my set look decidedly average! They were followed by Tom Real who showed his pure class and quality, a real personality behind the decks, with some wicked crowd interaction.

We have not had any trouble in the 4 years we have been around, but 10 mins after 30Hz got to the club, someone stole his record bag. He was scheduled to play the 2nd last headline set of the evening. Whilst we were all flapping Tom Real got cracking and gave everyone what they wanted, some fantastic techno and wonky house. The crowd were hyped, unaware that in the background we were scouring the CCTV attempting to verify the identity of the thief who would steal away 30Hz’s chance of playing.

We confirmed the thief’s identity and calmed down a bit, suddenly the security noticed that the thief had made the mistake of coming back in. We grabbed him and after much persuasion, made him reveal the location of the stolen bag (which had been hidden in a locker in the bus station!) We triumphantly announced the return of the bag to the crowd and 30hz was summoned back from his hotel room, shocked that we had got his records back.

30hz went on to end the night with one of the best sets he has ever played (his words) and ended once of the best nights in our history….We recorded all of the sets and our professional photographer was on hand to give us all some chance of remembering what happened.

A big thanks goes out to the DJs for putting up with all of my stress on the night. I appreciate you travelling all that way to play for us, I hope to have each of you down again, thanks for making the night absolutely go off and thanks for being absolute pro’s and showing us how its done!!

Till next time………

Sick Rick – February 9th

Posted in Uncategorized at January 8th, 2008 / No Comments »

Here is a little bit of bio…..

Sick Rick

Son of a guitar-maker and daughter of a Tracy Chapman-lover, Rick Grant aka Sick Rick aka the kind of boy you don’t take home to mother had always been around music, way before he realised it could get you paid and laid in the space of a few hours.
Initally hooked on progressive, Rick found his way to tech-house and, subsequently, breaks. The groove-based sounds of Bushwacka! and Nathan Coles were the ones he’d been looking for, and he spent many late nights working blending them with the house and electro records he loved.

After talking his way into a job co-producing Tayo’s Dread At The Controls show on Kiss100, Rick met (and impressed) Dom B of breakbeat supremos Stanton Warriors. He was asked to help run their Punks imprint, and made resident at their Stanton Sessions nights at Fabric. Having also impressed the Fabric staff with his subtle warm-up selections, he was asked back and has since played the club eight times in the last year, alongside the likes of Justice, Booka Shade, Plump DJs, DJ Yoda and Ame, capping 2006 by playing their New Years Eve party.

At the same time, Sick Rick also began to forge a strong studio partnership with Marine Parade’s Alex Metric, and the two collaborated on the massive ‘Space Hopper’, which picked up plays from all the big breaks DJs and was signed to Stanton Warriors’ Beats label. The duo were also responsible for some huge ‘under-the-counter’ edits, with their rework of Booka Shade’s classic ‘Mandarine Girl’ finding it’s way onto the 30th Fabriclive compilation.

Earlier this year, Sick Rick was named as ‘One To Watch in 2007’ by IDJ magazine. He added weight to the title by promptly licensing fresh track ‘Spread’ to General Midi’s Y4K compilation (under his and Alex Metric’s new What What What alter-ego), and completing a huge remix of Stanton Warriors’ ‘Seeker’ track. With regular slots at Fabric, another New Years Eve booking alongside the likes of Sinden, Skream and Audion, and gigs abroad in Budapest and Ibiza, 2007 has been a seriously unwell year for Sick Rick.

Listen to some of his tunes here and watch out for an exclusive mix coming up….

Welcome to the new Magik Bullet site

Posted in news at January 5th, 2008 / No Comments »

After a freak storm in our USA data centre, we were informed that the old Magik Bullet site had been completely destroyed. There were some remnants remaining and these were married with some Web 2.0 goodness, making for a big improvement..

There are some missing sections still, these should be fully active over the next week or so. Please do feel free to comment on anything or chat in our Facebook group.

Thank you for bearing with us.
