BnC Mix 034: Hypho
While the worlds of techno and dubstep have traditionally existed on separate planes without much opportunity for overlap, the past several years have seen those universes collide and spawn a landscape of deep 130 bpm beats that draw from the analog, raw sounds of techno, the driving rhythmic structures of breaks and 4 on the floor music, and the dark, low-end oriented vibe of dubstep. This hybrid sound has been supported by everyone from dubstep legends like Loefah, Biome, and Pinch, to techno dons like Hodge, to newcomers like Madam X, Walton, and Hypho.
Today’s installment in the Booms and Claps Mix Series comes to us from one of the most exciting newcomers to this sound: Manchester, UK’s HYPHO. With releases on labels ranging from the deep wonky dubstep and grime of Encrypted Audio to the dark breakbeats of Stanton Warriors’ Punks Music, Hypho has quickly solidified himself at the forefront of the hybrid 130 style over the past several years. He draws influence from all over the spectrum: jungle, jackin’ house, garage, drum and bass, and even donk music, as he recently stated in an interview with the massive bass music outlet UKF. After a huge summer in 2018 with a debut US tour and shows all over Europe, we can’t wait to see what Hypho has up his sleeve for next year. Without further ado, we’re proud to present: Booms and Claps Mix 034: HYPHO.
