Luck & Neat vs Artful Dodger
We have not one, but two Cool Tests this issue, with two of the Garage Nation headliners, Luck & Neat and Artful going head to head. But who’s got the bigger bassline?
Who's the coolest person in your phone book?
Luck & Neat: My gran! Artful Dodger: My mother.
Luck & Neat: 5 days of madness a long time ago, waaaaay back when! Artful Dodger: 5 or 6 days, it was definitely in Ibiza!
What's the longest you've gone without sleep?
Coolest Garage DJ in the world (apart from yourself, obviously)?
Luck & Neat: Mark Ronson. Artful Dodger: No contest, EZ.
Luck & Neat: Jazzy Jeff is a Don! Artful Dodger: A lot of DJs have got great record collection but when Carl Cox wants to draw for a tune he can.
Luck & Neat: I suppose we have got to say ‘ With A Little Bit Of Luck’. That was our first chart track and was in the UK Top 10 Charts for 11 weeks, and sold nearly a million units. This track has done so much for us receiving the Mobo Award & UMA Award and enables us to travel all over the world spreading the UK garage sound to as many different places as we can. We have total appreciation for this each and every day. Artful Dodger: I should say an Artful Dodger record like ‘ Rewind’ or ‘ Moving Too Fast’ but I'm not, I'm gonna go for ‘ Woman Trouble’ because everyman has had some at some point in his life!
Luck & Neat: This has got to be the ‘ Migraine Skank’ by Gracious K, big track, big moves! Artful Dodger: I'm the best breakdancer you gave ever seen I will burn anyone on the dance floor… Luck & Neat: Party in the Park, Hyde Park, London, 150,000 people, it was crazy! Artful Dodger: Headlining the dance stage at Glastonbury!
Who's got the coolest record collection?
Coolest track ever made?
Your best dance move is… What's your best claim to fame?
It's not big and clever but…
Luck & Neat: Time keeping needs to be sometimes improved! Artful Dodger: But someone's gotta do it.
What's your answer to everything?
Luck & Neat: Really? Artful Dodger: I'm right! Luck & Neat: Shut up, you’ll never be the man your mother is! Hahaha, only playing we have total love and respect for each other, UK garage all the way! Artful Dodger: Your family tree is a cactus, everyone on it is a prick! Looooooool, all healthy banter - mutual love and respect all the way!
What's the best insult you could give each other?
The verdict: Strong game lads, strong game – evenly matched beat for beat, blow for blow, this is a high scoring draw. Garage Nation, Friday February 13, Level 41 Media One Hotel, 9pm-3am feat. Artful Dodger, DJ Luck & MC Neat, DJ Pied Piper, Kele Le Roc & Masterstepz.
