  • BnC Mix 016: Dexta

    August 8, 2016 Peter Merritt

      When one thinks of the strong curators of halftime drum and bass, footwork, autonomic hybrid bass music, and “slowfast” in 2016, many labels come to mind. Obviously, there are the heavy hitters: dBridge‘s Exit Records, Om Unit‘s Cosmic Bridge Recordings, Ivy Lab‘s 20/20 LDN, and the legendary Critical Music, but over the past few years, a couple other imprints have solidified themselves…

  • BnC Mix 015: Subp Yao

    August 2, 2016 Mike Vincent

    Excitement levels were high when I found out one of my favorite European producers, Subp Yao, was going to be playing Emissions this year.

    April 6, 2016 Peter Merritt

    If you’ve been on the internet even once in the past several years, you’ve noticed that the vibey Soundcloud R&B sound has skyrocketed in popularity. Ciara remixes with 100,000 plays are commonplace for everyone with a bucket hat in 2016. As with any trendy style of electronic music however, the sound begins to homogenize, and…

    The term “West Coast Bass Music” gets thrown around quite a lot in discussions of low-end frequencies in North America. Many refer to the “West Coast Bass Music SCENE” and how thriving it is.
