• Zeke Beats – Pay Attention EP

    October 31, 2014 Ben

    Australian producer Zeke Beats is poised to become a household name in the bass music world (are there a lot of households that listen to bass music? I’ve caught my toddler son humming the melody of “Mechanical” so I’ll say yes). Equipped with stupidly large beats and mad turntable skills, he’s been impressing our faces…

    S∆LO has been kicking ass and taking names for a while now, so it was only a matter of time until we posted up one of his tunes. His music is self-described as “ØUTER.SPACE HØØD MUSIK”, and, well, that’s exactly what it is. His most recent tune, “DRIPPN” is one of those slowed down, psychedelic tunes that…

  • Mura Masa – Lotus Eater (Free Download)

    October 27, 2014 Ben

    We’ve been fans of young Mura Masa since we heard his tracks played out at the ill-fated Trill God “festival”. His off-kilter, clanking beats have been progressing in quality ever since; every new upload revealing more of the obvious talent at Mura Masa’s fingertips. Mura Masa’s latest track comes to us free, courtesy of UK radio legend…

Our ideal selector for this mission statement has always been Bios, the man in charge of BnC’s favorite label: Saturate Records. Based in Hamburg,…

  • Sayer & Bleep Bloop – Trample Dem

    October 22, 2014 Mike Vincent

    Much to our satisfaction, California-based producers Sayer and Bleep Bloop have been conjuring up some absolutely bonkers material in the studio recently. Yesterday they dropped “Trample Dem” and, after scraping your broken body off the floor, you’ll find this title to be more than appropriate. The ever-changing lead synth is reminiscent of the climax of a terrifying horror film,…

  • Spoken Bird – How Old Is The Wind?

    October 20, 2014 zac

    Earlier this month one of my favorite lesser known Bay Area producers, Spoken Bird released EP, How Old Is The Wind. Alex Gonzalez, the man behind the bird, is a founding member of the Chillage People Collective, who champion a “goopy” sound; thick gurgling bass lines entwined with chill atmospheres that make you groove. Although he…

  • Artikal Music Compilation – The Best Dubstep Release of 2014

    October 15, 2014 Ben

    Spreading himself between his own productions, a radio show, running a label and battering crowds with heavy dj sets (including in our own backyard at Emissions), J:Kenzo has been one of dubstep’s greatest (and busiest) champions. As a fellow dad, I’m in awe of this man’s productivity. J:Kenzo’s newest contribution to the genre comes via his label, Artikal…
