    April 28, 2020 Peter Merritt

    Cross-cultural connections are more valuable than gold in the music scene. Jungle and footwork are great on their own, but together? That’s where the magic happens. R&B? Cool. Grime? Great. R&B/Grime fusion? Sign us UP. Rap? Yup. Rock? Yeah… Well, maybe we could have just skipped the 90’s/2000’s rap-rock era and the whole world would’ve…

    April 7, 2020 Peter Merritt

    Today’s installment in the Booms and Claps Mix Series comes to us from Bristol-based uptempo bass music producer Hyroglifics, and while most would consider him first-and-foremost a drum and bass producer, he’s not quite so easy to categorize. He exploded onto the scene six years ago with his freshman excursion, “BINARY Vol. 1” on the widely…

  • BnC Mix 044: Deft

    June 18, 2019 Peter Merritt

    The intersection of electronic music and dancefloor culture has long created an environment that nurtures DJ-able music over production intended for home listening. Electronic music lives in clubs, for better or for worse, and the current state of the industry forces most producers to make the bulk of their living from performances. They won’t get…
