• The Digital Connection’s Equinox Mixtape (All Original)

    May 29, 2014 Mike Vincent

    To witness an artist from their humble beginnings mature their sound over the years is always a treat. I remember joining Afromonk’s Turntable.fm room back in 2011 and hearing Ricky Shine, AKA The Digital Connection playing a few tracks that he was working on at the time. Since then Ricky’s spent countless hours dialing in his sound design, trying…

  • Intellitard’s Juicy Dreams And Lucid Schemes EP

    May 27, 2014 Mike Vincent

    Today, Berkeley-based producer Intellitard dropped his newest EP, Juicy Dreams And Lucid Schemes on his crew’s newly founded label Wormhole Music Group. It’s safe to say that this release does not conform to any kind of mold whatsoever, and that’s how we like it over here at Booms And Claps. Upon pressing play, I was sucked through a wormhole into a…

  • Raindance 2014 Celebrates 10 Years Of West Coast Festival Culture

    May 26, 2014 zac

      I think we all have that one special moment where we fell head-over-heel for this beautiful corner of the music scene. For me, it was the summer of 2009 in the Santa Cruz mountains at the Raindance Campout. Raindance was notably smaller than other events I had been to, it had a very intimate feel…

  • Lido’s New Track is Money

    May 20, 2014 Ben

    Lido has dropped the first track from his forthcoming EP on Pelican Fly. Out June 9th, his EP was already on top of our most-wanted list, and “Money” has just leveled up the Lido-lust to dangerous levels. Money uses Lido’s trademark banging chords and sexual melody to great effect, juxtaposing them with two banging club sections. Think…

  • Stooki Sound – Shut Up?

    May 16, 2014 Ben

    From the epic space-age build to the wonked-out drop, Stooki Sound has given us so much to love with “Shut Up?” (say it in a valley girl accent for full effect). No word on a release for this doozy of a preview, but we thought you should know it exists and join us in playing…

  • TroyBoi ft. J N!CK – Make Her Dance

    May 6, 2014 Peter Merritt

    Some of you may know TroyBoi for his darker, harder trap productions, and although this track definitely retains some of that style, it also incorporates some of the softer, more emotional elements of bass music that have become associated with the very successful label it was released on, Trapdoor Records. With releases from up and…

  • Great Dane – Daisy (G JONES FLIP) *free download*

    May 6, 2014 Mike Vincent

    We’re guilty of it, and if you’re already not, you will be soon. We are G Jones fanboys. How do you know you’re a fanboy? Well, do you repeatedly watch crappy Youtube videos just to hear his unreleased tracks? Do you breathe along with the intro to “Vanishing Point”? When you hear a track of…
