    April 28, 2014 Peter Merritt

  • Bleep Bloop – Duality of Man ft. Starkey & Patrick Sexx

    April 20, 2014 Peter Merritt

    Our beloved Reverend Bleep Bloop has been hard at work in the studio for the past several months, and it truly shows. Not only does he have a full length LP in the works (featuring a collaboration with DJ Shadow that I certainly have been dying to hear), but he has also found time to…

  • Joker – Digital Mainframe

    April 17, 2014 Peter Merritt

    Hopefully, Joker needs no introduction. As one of the reigning kings of UK dubstep, (specifically a pioneer of what some people consider to be “purple”) he has been absolutely killing the game for the better part of a decade now, while running his label, Kapsize Recordings. The sound that he pioneered in the late 2000’s…

    We have mad, mad love for NastyNasty here at BnC. His music has been a big part of countless insane nights and unhinged festivals. Three of us met for the first time shortly before his WTF 2012 set, which involved a lot of getting weird in the paint and a naked girl trying to climb…

  • Distance – Straight UP (MADNESS)

    April 4, 2014 Ben

    As one of the original dons of dubstep, Distance has been killing the bassweight game since before most ravers hit puberty. That experience shows on his latest upload, Straight UP, a mental wonky beat with a dark underbelly. The screwface will be very real when this is played out. If you’re new to the deeper…
