• BnC Mix 014: Doctor Jeep

    July 13, 2016 Peter Merritt

    In a world of hyper-targeted production and genre wars, New York City’s Doctor Jeep is a rare breed when it comes to diversity: his production and DJ sets blend influences from club music, halftime drum and bass, jungle, techno, grime, house, dancehall, dubstep, UK garage, world music, and more. With releases on labels ranging from the legendary Trouble…

  • BnC Mix 013: Pleasure

    June 9, 2016 Mike Vincent

    If you don’t already know about Pleasure, you should. He’s become a staple in the West Coast scene, and more recently, around the world. Pleasure’s newest release, Reset, on Saturate Records, has given him some momentum and garnered a decent amount of attention in the bass community. Not only that, but his collaboration with Slovakia-based producer Jimmy Pé ,”Something Like…

  • BnC Mix 012: jamie blake

    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…

  • Bass Coast Appreciation – BnC Mix 011: Mat The Alien (Live at Slay Bay)

    February 3, 2016 Peter Merritt

    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. Unfortunately, discussions of this scene largely focus on Bay Area club nights, California festivals, and the producers and DJs of this…

  • BnC Mix 010: Tiber

    October 6, 2015 Peter Merritt

    As a music blogger and DJ, a lot of my time is spent scouring the deep, dark depths of the mystical realm known to most as “Soundcloud”. Every once in a while, I come across a sonic gem in a confusingly distant corner of this mystical realm that appears to have been previously undiscovered by…

  • 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…

    June 2, 2015 Mike Vincent

    Today we are proud to announce the 8th installment of our exclusive mix series, and this time we’re taking a step in a different direction, heading up the slopes of the Rocky Mountains and into the mind of bass music producer The Digital Connection, also known as Ricky Shine. The 47-minute mix touches upon many sounds and vibes;…

  • BnC Mix 007: Moniker

    May 25, 2015 Ben

    My first exposure to Moniker came via our first BnC Mix, courtesy Bios and Zeke Beats. “Bogus” came in after Zeke’s infamous “Drugz”, and held its own with a banging beat and some of the glitchiest arcade bleeps in the game. I was worried this beat was lost when their laptop was stolen late last year, wiping away…

  • 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 Mix 005: Digid

    March 10, 2015 Ben

    We’re massive nerds for 85 bpm. Whether it’s halftime dnb, slowfast purple music, weird bass experiments, jungle or footwork; we’re sure to be in the front of the crowd, firing gunfingers and bellowing our approval. To satiate our appetite for the sound, it was only natural to have Digid apply his dubby take on 85 to our mix series. The aforementioned…
