Luck & Neat vs Art­ful Dodger

Infusion Magazine - - SPIN -

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.

We have a pair of tick­ets to give away, head to in­fu­sion.ae
