Magnetic Man is a live electronic music project consisting of dubstep producers and DJs Skream, Benga and Artwork. They perform using three computers, one playing drum samples and loops, one playing basslines and the third playing lead sounds and samples. Artwork controls the master laptop, to which the other two are synchronised via midi. Their sets usually consist of a mix of original tracks produced together, and live remixes of Benga and Skream's tracks, accompanied by synchronised projected visuals by Novak Collective.

They signed to Columbia Records in February 2010. Their first single on the label, I Need Air was released on the 26th July 2010.
