• Camp Questionmark’s “The Carnival” TICKET GIVEAWAY

    July 28, 2015 Peter Merritt

    “Ain’t no party like a Camp ? party, cuz a Camp ? party is lit AF.” –Anonymous Here at Booms and Claps, the low-end is undeniably important. When judging the value of an event, our questions usually range from the obvious: “Who’s playing?” to the slightly less obvious “Who’s throwing the show?” to the often overlooked,…

  • BnC EXCLUSIVE: Profresher – Launchpad

    March 31, 2015 Peter Merritt

    Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Billy Blacklight AKA Profresher has been pushing 808 bass music forward for longer than most can even remember. A producer with incredible range, his style has spanned from “crunk-flavored beats” and “neo-g-funk basslines” to synth-driven shiny beat music, even to drum ‘n bass. Profresher is one of those producers who has…

  • BnC EXCLUSIVE: Nights (MHSM) – That Strange Feeling

    March 23, 2015 Peter Merritt

    Most of the time, when we think of Colorado electronic music, and especially the Mile High Sound Movement, we think of glitch-hop. We think of Vibesquad, Project Aspect, and Cloud-D. But there’s another side to the Colorado scene; a softer, more soulful, beat-music oriented side. Nights is the resident beat-music project of the Mile High Sound…

  • Partners in Grime – No Grime or Reason Mixtape

    November 14, 2014 Peter Merritt

    The current “finding new tunes” protocol for the average electronic music listener is as follows: 1. Get on Soundcloud. 2. Listen to each tune for roughly 10-15 seconds, skip ahead to the “drop”, or wherever they perceive the “drop” to be according to the waveform provided by Soundcloud. 3. Repeat for 15-20 tunes. 4. Get…

  • Ta-Ku – Drive Slow, Homie, Pt. IV

    November 4, 2014 Peter Merritt

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past several years, you’ve probably become relatively familiar with Aussie beatsmith Ta-Ku. He first came to my attention towards the end of 2011/start of 2012 with his “50 Days for Dilla” project, in which he produced a beat in the style of the legendary J Dilla  every day…

  • Sayer & Bleep Bloop – Trample Dem

    October 22, 2014 Mike Vincent

    Much to our satisfaction, California-based producers Sayer and Bleep Bloop have been conjuring up some absolutely bonkers material in the studio recently. Yesterday they dropped “Trample Dem” and, after scraping your broken body off the floor, you’ll find this title to be more than appropriate. The ever-changing lead synth is reminiscent of the climax of a terrifying horror film,…

  • Get Sad with Skit and Mr James (Free Download)

    August 8, 2014 Ben

    Skit first came to my attention via the fantastic Sweat EP on Plastician‘s Terrorhythm Recordings. Packed with sensuality and atmosphere, “Sweat” has been on repeat ever since. On his newest release, a free download entitled “The End” with Mr James, Skit has retained his mastery of atmosphere, but shifted the focus from sensuality to something darker. This is a…

  • PREMIERE: Dev79 – Dutch Yak (STREET BASS ANTHEMS VOL 7)

    August 6, 2014 Peter Merritt

    Last week, Philadelphia grime/808-bass badmen Starkey and Dev79 released the 7th installment in their “Street Bass Anthems” compilation series, and it’s chock full of exactly what you would expect: street bass bangers. With tunes from the likes of established heads such as Knight Riderz, Bass Science, Starkey and Dev79 themselves, and even a collaboration with Martyparty, as well as some lesser known up and comers like KAW and Fast…
