• Three Compilations of the West Coast

    February 27, 2015 Ben

    The West Coast has always been in its own private world musically, external influences propagate here only by mutating into funkier, weirder forms and the homegrown styles are stranger still. Yet to homogenize the West Coast into one group would lose many of the localized flavors to which it plays host. Recent compilations from Portland, Berkeley and Humboldt…

    When I received some massive and mysterious test masters in my inbox from Saturate Records last week I desperately messaged them, “Who made these untagged bangers?!” One word appeared in the answer: “BANGANAGANGBANGERS“. An alliance of 5 like-minded dudes from The Netherlands, BANGANAGANGBANGERS is the metaphysical manifestation of their collective desire to bang. Whether they’re slaying crowds or…

  • What The Festival Releases Initial Lineup

    February 23, 2015 Peter Merritt

    Over the past several years, as we grow older and pickier about music and life in general as a staff here at Booms and Claps, there are few festivals that have continued to impress us every year without fail. Whereas the 17 year old versions of ourselves were in “FESTIVAL EVERY WEEKEND ALL SUMMER LET’S DO THIS”…

  • BnC Mix Series 003 – Perkulat0r

    February 14, 2015 Mike Vincent

    This time every year we proudly celebrate the Christian martyr Valentinus. Most likely we say “screw that”, and instead go out and buy copious amounts of socially prescribed candy, flowers and other related Hallmark items. Whether you’re spending some time with your valentine today or not, this newest mix by Perkulat0r will provide you with all the…

  • Tropical Futurism with Liquid Rockz – Gringo

    February 11, 2015 Ben

    Germany’s Liquid Rockz acts as a psychedelic wormhole between disparate musical dimensions. On their newest release, Gringo, the traditional sounds of South American music are sucked through their vortex and emerge as trippy club music. Much like Clap! Clap! has done with the music of Africa, Liquid Rockz manage to make bass music that appreciates rather than…
