I first heard of Joy Orbison, known to his mum as Peter O’Grady, way back in July via Henry Barne’s New Music On Wednesday column on the Guardian website. Gilles Peterson then started playing it on his Worldwide show and now Zane Lowe is playing it to the wider masses too so chances are you’ve already heard this excellent slice of dance / dubstep / drum n bass / 2-step / or whatever it’s called today. If not then get clicking and turn it up.
As an homage to the legend Mr Magic, who died this morning following a heart attack, here is Whodini’s Mr. Magic tribute “Magic’s Wand”.
“I miss Mr. Magic” Nas – Halftime, from 1992.
