  • BnC Mix 006 – PRSN

    April 21, 2015 Peter Merritt

    As you may have noticed, we at Booms and Claps are extremely down with everything that can be described as “slowfast”. If there were ever a term to describe PRSN‘s style, this would be it.  Incorporating elements of higher tempo genres at half the speed and alternating between the rhythmic patterns of dancehall, hip-hop, and footwork creates the…

  • BnC EXCLUSIVE: Profresher – Launchpad

    March 31, 2015 Peter Merritt

    Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Billy Blacklight AKA Profresher has been pushing 808 bass music forward for longer than most can even remember. A producer with incredible range, his style has spanned from “crunk-flavored beats” and “neo-g-funk basslines” to synth-driven shiny beat music, even to drum ‘n bass. Profresher is one of those producers who has…

  • BnC EXCLUSIVE: Nights (MHSM) – That Strange Feeling

    March 23, 2015 Peter Merritt

    Most of the time, when we think of Colorado electronic music, and especially the Mile High Sound Movement, we think of glitch-hop. We think of Vibesquad, Project Aspect, and Cloud-D. But there’s another side to the Colorado scene; a softer, more soulful, beat-music oriented side. Nights is the resident beat-music project of the Mile High Sound…

  • 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 002: ONHELL

  • EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Bricksquash (Cloud-D x Resonant Language)

    December 30, 2014 Peter Merritt

    Colorado has long been one of the most prominent areas in the world for underground bass music (especially of the glitchy variety). Not only does Denver have one of the most crackin’ bass music scenes in the United States, but there was a period when you almost couldn’t go a day without a new Colorado producer popping…

  • AWE – Griffin // Triassic

    December 5, 2014 Peter Merritt

    It’s probably safe to say that AWE (aka Zack Urman) has had a decent couple of years. Two years ago, Zack Urman was 18 years old, living in Los Angeles, producing dubstep under the moniker Zaku-Chan. He exploded onto the scene in May of 2013 with his massive EP, “Eagle Soul”, on Terrorhythm Records,  but under a new moniker: AWE. Since then, his music has easily…

  • Partners in Grime – No Grime or Reason Mixtape

    November 14, 2014 Peter Merritt

    The current “finding new tunes” protocol for the average electronic music listener is as follows: 1. Get on Soundcloud. 2. Listen to each tune for roughly 10-15 seconds, skip ahead to the “drop”, or wherever they perceive the “drop” to be according to the waveform provided by Soundcloud. 3. Repeat for 15-20 tunes. 4. Get…

  • Ta-Ku – Drive Slow, Homie, Pt. IV

    November 4, 2014 Peter Merritt

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past several years, you’ve probably become relatively familiar with Aussie beatsmith Ta-Ku. He first came to my attention towards the end of 2011/start of 2012 with his “50 Days for Dilla” project, in which he produced a beat in the style of the legendary J Dilla  every day…
