We are adding more space for music

Posted in news at February 13th, 2009 / No Comments »

We are definitely not ones to look backwards at Magik Bullet towers and when it comes to the web, we like to think that we are on top of things. One of the main reasons that people visit our site is to download mixes and this is the part that we are improving drastically. We have just bought an extra 50 gigabytes of web space and in plain english, this means that we will be able to provide lots more mix-sets to download.

We will also get to work on uploading as many of the older sets as we can find in order to provide as complete a record as possible of our past 4 1/2 years in the game. Thanks for your support and heres to exciting times ahead.

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.
