    August 27, 2020 Peter Merritt

    Since forming in 2016, Minneapolis-based DJ/producer trio Ternion Sound has quickly become a household name in the underground dubstep scene, churning out 140 bpm dungeon anthems with alarming consistency. In just a few short years, they’ve stacked releases on legendary labels like Truth’s Deep Dark and Dangerous, Alix Perez’s 1985 Music, and J:Kenzo’s Artikal Music, while…

  • Electronic music is rooted in black culture. We’re not doing enough to acknowledge that.

    June 5, 2020 Peter Merritt

    As an outlet run by white men that highlights music and art that is deeply rooted in black culture, we would like to recognize that we have failed. We feature music that draws influence from dancehall, jungle, dub and reggae, hip hop, rap, grime, dubstep, drum and bass, techno, and countless other styles of music…

  • BnC Mix 050: Anna Morgan

    April 28, 2020 Peter Merritt

    Cross-cultural connections are more valuable than gold in the music scene. Jungle and footwork are great on their own, but together? That’s where the magic happens. R&B? Cool. Grime? Great. R&B/Grime fusion? Sign us UP. Rap? Yup. Rock? Yeah… Well, maybe we could have just skipped the 90’s/2000’s rap-rock era and the whole world would’ve…

    April 7, 2020 Peter Merritt

    Today’s installment in the Booms and Claps Mix Series comes to us from Bristol-based uptempo bass music producer Hyroglifics, and while most would consider him first-and-foremost a drum and bass producer, he’s not quite so easy to categorize. He exploded onto the scene six years ago with his freshman excursion, “BINARY Vol. 1” on the widely…
