P-Money and DJ Magic
Where are they from?
London. South and West, respectively.
Not a duo but old team-mates appearing on a double bill here together, the pair unite grime and dubstep styles within their sounds, the former as an MC, the latter as a producer, DJ and label boss.

P-Money has made a big impression on the London grime scene lately with his track made alongside Sukh Knight, ‘Slang Like This’. Having worked on pirate radio stations and continuing to MC at raves, he’s signed to Magic’s label No Hats No Hoods. He’s also a member of up and coming grime collective OGz.
What about DJ Magic?
‘I haven’t been there from the start of grime,’ he has said, ‘which I think gives me a fresher perspective on the scene.’ One of the younger wave of artists in London, he started DJing on North London pirate station Sweet FM in 2005. Not long after that he started to co-promote Camden grime night Dirty Canvas, and No Hats No Hoods (a common command on entry to club nights round his way) has seen him cement his status as a kind of A&R man to a whole new generation of grime artists in London. Among those featured on his label mixtape No Hats No Hoods Vol.1 are Tempa T, Jammer and Skepta, emphasising the respect for quality which the label deserves.
Any other business?
The duo will be joined here by the usual Big’n’Bashy team of Tekamine, Deburgh and Decoy Roy, playing reggae, grime, dubstep and jungle.
