The frontman and moniker familiarized by the Occupy Wall Street movement, Anonymous, has frequently attacked Neo-Nazi activists across Europe, trying to remove all web-outlets praising their organization. Earlier this morning, Anonymous successfully hacked their ‘mail-order’ website, sending this message, alongside an Atari Teenage Riot track, to all members linked within their server:

“I think dubstep has become so huge because it’s a complete bastardization of electronic music,” exclaims rapidly emerging young producer and artist DATSIK. “There’s a little bit of everything thrown in the mix and dirtied up. There are pieces of hip-hop, the bass from electronic dance tracks and the roots of U.K. garage and drum & bass…Dubstep is totally the punk rock of electronic music.”
His latest and second single off “Vitamin D” (LP, coming soon) “Evilution” was built from another Jonathan Davis collaboration, this time with Israeli psy-trance band Infected Mushroom. Collaborating after a chance meeting backstage at New York’s massive Electric Zoo festival last summer, the pair brought their wildly disparate sounds together as one. “Blending dubstep with psy-trance and Jonathan Davis sounds kind of insane,” DATSIK admits, “but the track came out great and I’m stoked on it.”
“Lately, I’m focusing on creating memorable songs, so it’s always real music and not just a collection of cool beats,” DATSIK says finally. “Of course, it’s gotta be funky so people can dance to it. More than anything, I want people to be able to hum my songs, robot noises and all.”
Magnetic Magazine reached out to Felix Cartal to discuss his ‘life music chart’, featuring all the “Top 5” tracks, both new and old, that made him into who he is today. In an interesting array of music, Felix was asked to provide his favorites amongst the “Top Dance”, “Top Electronic”, “Top Non Electronic”, “Most Played On iTunes”, including a random mention to the most “ideal tracks for a summertime pool party”.

Atari Teenage Riot – Riot In Japan 2011
Atari Teenage Riot toured worldwide throughout 2011 and in November recorded this live show in Tokyo to bring listeners just a taste of their incendiary live show, described by the NME as “…a cavalcade of forever-young yelps: a brilliantly nasty volley of universe-shaping techno-metal.” Rock-a-Rolla wrote: “Seizure-inducing levels of strobe lighting are joined by breakbeats, jungle, drum ’n’ bass and caustic guitar samples at every turn, providing enough variety and energy to prove that this is no mere nostalgia trip for them, this is a return to arms.”
Now if that doesn’t tempt you….
2012 is the 20th anniversary of Atari Teenage Riot so expect much to happen this year, including a remastered version of the classic ‘Burn, Berlin, Burn’ album, new singles and a studio album. The band will also be touring internationally, beginning in February in Europe and South America.
Check out the Atari Teenage Riot artist pages for more info.
February has been a pretty good month for new music. Apart from our own releases, a few of our artists have contributed to giving back to their ‘annual influences’. We’ve received several track-heavy charts from Felix Cartal, Rowdy from Atari Teenage Riot, and Datsik, curated off his latest single “Fully Blown”. It’s now time to hear from one of the most legendary players in the game, with their 10-track selection, sarcastically titled “U R So Smart” Beatport chart.
1. Feed Me, Gemini – Whiskers
2. Zedd – Slam The Door
3. Analog Mc, K+Lab – Wrecked
4. Zedd – Stars Come Out
5. Hadouken!, Feed Me – Trapdoor
6. Skrillex – Bangarang feat. Sirah
7. Koan Sound – Meanwhile, In The Future
8. Infected Mushroom – U R So Smart
9. Feed Me – One Click Headshot
10. Ian Carey, Brasco, Timbaland – Amnesia feat. Timbaland & Brasco
“It’s about energy,” exclaims Atari Teenage Riot singer Alec Empire of the band’s live gigs.
The digital hardcore pioneers distill visceral energy into Riot in Japan 2011. Captured during their triumphant set at the Fuji Rock Festival, the group’s latest release for Dim Mak is an explosive and energizing snapshot of one of their legendary live performances. The band sounds intensely infectious as they run through classic songs as well as “Activate!” Empire and co. did something that’s normally impossible for rock and electronic acts—they made a live record that really does make listeners feel like they were there. Not only that, it’s as potent as one of their studio efforts.
Riot in Japan 2011 drops on February 28, 2012 via Dim Mak, but Atari Teenage Riot has partnered with ARTISTdirect.com to exclusively stream the album below.
