‘Ramadanman leads the new crop of artists leaving genre rules behind.’ – XLR8R
Tying together dubstep, house, ambient and more with several unreleased productions under his Pearson Sound and Ramadanman guises, David Kennedy demonstrates on Fabriclive 56 why he has rapidly ascended to the pinnacle of the bass music movement.

Following up the #1 single ‘Is It Love,’ platinum artists iiO long awaited new album is out now. The brand new and highly anticipated studio album, aptly titled Exit 110, was assembled by DJ/producer/songwriter Markus Moser, and features again, Nadia Ali on vocals. The success of iiO is undeniable. Their massive hits have inspired dozens of smash remix singles by DJ/producers such as Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Starkillers and many, many more. This together with an ongoing momentum of steady airplay and demand for an incredible 10 years, it was clear that a comeback was in order; and finally that time has come: enter Exit 110.
From Montreal to Vancouver via Seattle, Texas and Toronto, Gorillaz recorded a musical diary during spare time while on the road over 32 days on their North American Tour last autumn. The result, titled The Fall, is a collection of 15 tracks: some with vocals, some without, some combined performances and some solo. The sonic journal, featuring the first single ‘Revolving Doors,’ was produced by the band and Stephen Sedgwick.
