• 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,…

    January 7, 2016 Mike Vincent

    Our friends over at Bass Tribe have started up a winter mix series, and this one has caught our immediate attention. Don’t know Bass Tribe? They originated as a weekly bass music event in San Diego and have since branched out to multiple locations throughout the US. One of their distinguished San Fransisco branch residents ET-Y delivers a hard…

  • 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…

  • Sam Binga’s “Wasted Days” LP: A Middle Finger to Genre Definitions

    October 13, 2015 Peter Merritt

    When I think about the proverbial “genre map” of electronic music, and how it has developed over the past several decades, it becomes clear to me that the last 10 years have represented a hyperspace of trendsetting changes that was previously unprecedented. The face of modern electronic music in 2015 is so significantly different from…

  • 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…

  • BnC Mix 009: Zero Tep

    September 15, 2015 grytness

    Like most of us who have never been to Wisconsin, all we know of that alleged northern state is beer, bratwursts, and 90’s sitcoms about people in the 70’s. That changed for me earlier this year after surfing the net and discovering a collective known as Noh Life. With a unique twist on already twisted bass…

  • 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…
