• ZEKE BEATS Overheated My Reactor With His Meltdown EP

    April 15, 2016 Ben

    Australia’s ZEKE BEATS is no stranger to us, as part of our inaugural BnC Mix, his turntablism and blistering beats set a high bar for all mixes to follow. Now that our hipster credentials are shored up (we heard him first you plebs!), I can say that ZEKE’s newest on Terrorhythm is a vicious piece of work.…

  • Kid Antoine Keeps it Colorful with Bodypaint

    February 8, 2016 Ben

    When I listen to new music, I often ask myself, “Which Kid Antoine track would this blend with?” Gleaming melodies atop club beats just work, and KA is at the top of that game. From the infectious Expected Encounter to the glorious Proximity EP, his releases with Her Records are mandatory listening for club fans. KA’s Bodypaint EP raises the bar…

  • Terrorhythm Makes Waves with Noah B’s Night’s Edge EP

    January 26, 2016 Ben

    Terrorhythm boss Plastician has been supporting “wave” music on his radio show for quite some time, but his relationship with the loosely-defined genre grew closer after his fantastic “Lights Out” mix heavily featured the sound. “Wave”, or whatever you want to call it (we’ve called music like this “sadboy beats” within the blog) isn’t new or revolutionary,…

  • Saturate’s Mondaze Finest Freebies – Ranked By Dankness

    January 12, 2016 Ben

    Now that our friends at Saturate Records and Clap Your Feet have finished off another season of generous Monday morning downloads, it’s a good time to have a little post-game roundup on the offerings. I know I missed a bunch of these, so consider this a PSA to all bass music junkies needing a free…

  • Hypha and Psy Fi Turned Wiley’s “Wise Man” into a Spectral Banger

    October 31, 2015 Ben

    NorCal bass stalwarts Hypha and Psy Fi have applied their considerable talents to bootlegging Wiley‘s “Wise Man”. They’ve taken the grime anthem and laid it atop a mean dubstep beat. The eerie atmospherics and crunchy synths here make this a perfect Halloween treat. Snag the free download below, and keep an eye on these two, this…

  • Dubstep Has Been Quietly Killing It This Year

    September 22, 2015 Ben

    2015’s been a strange one: EDM’s corpse is thoroughly decayed even though no one’s got around to writing an obituary, “future bass” is a flaccid mess of bandwagon-ers, and your friend who wouldn’t shut up about deep house last year just imported a BBK shirt. The only time dubstep seems to get mentioned is shitty blogs trying to make ad…

  • The OriGinALz – Vanilla Cake Island EP

    July 30, 2015 Ben

    California’s The OriGinALz have been regulars on the West Coast festival circuit for a good while, but their past dalliances in bass music are seriously out-shined by the purple majesty of their latest EP on Saturate Records. Maybe they’ve been keeping their best material on lock for a proper label, or maybe Saturate just inspired them to…

  • Walton Bulldozes All Soundboys with Flute Riddim

    July 13, 2015 Ben

    There are few artists who manage the level of consistent quality Walton has demonstrated over his career. Whether it’s his 2011 EP on Hyperdub, his 2013 LP on the same label or the couple of UK bass bangers on he dropped with Keysound (Homage and Cool It VIP), every piece of this man’s catalog is a must-own. Walton’s new EP on Pinch‘s venerable Tectonic Recordings…

  • Plastician Has New Tracks With Skepta And Jammz And You Should Be Paying Attention

    July 2, 2015 Ben

    Plastician might be the hardest working person in bass music. Between his weekly Rinse show, running Terrorhythm (seemingly single-handed) and being a new(ish) father it’s surprising he has any time for the studio, yet here he is making back-to-back power moves. Last week he premiered “London Living” with Jammz, combining one of the hottest MCs of…

  • Booms and Claps: Volume 2 Compilation

    June 25, 2015 Ben

    We’ve grown since our first compilation dropped a year ago; we started a mix series, we’re throwing the first official BnC show soon in Portland, and people even read our posts occasionally. Shouts to everyone who’s taken the time to follow us, music blogs have not fared well the past year, but your love has kept this little niche of weird bass…
