• EXCLUSIVE: Emilian Dubz – Ghetto

    September 24, 2014 Peter Merritt

    Several weeks ago, while exploring the dark depths of Soundcloud, I came across a young Argentinian producer by the name of Emilian Dubz. His tunes, while retaining a modern bass music influence, immediately reminded me of the deep wonky sound commonplace in late 2000’s dubstep. His Soundcloud page had under 1,000 followers, which, as I’m sure…

  • Bleep Bloop – Feel The Cosmos EP

    September 10, 2014 Ben

    August 15th, most of the Booms and Claps crew converged on Portland, Oregon to partake in a holy sacrament of bass administered by the Reverend Bleep Bloop. Though he shared the stage with fellow men of the cloth Eprom, Buku and Yheti, Bleep Bloop’s space-bass orgy made the biggest impression of them all. The sheer power of his 808 drops…

    September 5, 2014 Ben

This sort of music needs to immerse you to be fully appreciated.* When you say a track is “banging”, what do you mean? Does it physically batter you into whimpering submission? Sudanim thinks it should. His…

  • ONHELL – Simple Stare

    September 2, 2014 Ben

    ONHELL recently migrated from Arcata, CA to Oakland, but the stench of Humboldt is still thick upon his beats. Percussion that plinks across the stereo field, turned-up-but-still-sad 808 drops and melancholy vocal chops flow from his newest release, the Simple Stare EP on Muti Music. ONHELL covers a lot of ground with this release, from the…
