• Electronic music is rooted in black culture. We’re not doing enough to acknowledge that.

    June 5, 2020 Peter Merritt

    As an outlet run by white men that highlights music and art that is deeply rooted in black culture, we would like to recognize that we have failed. We feature music that draws influence from dancehall, jungle, dub and reggae, hip hop, rap, grime, dubstep, drum and bass, techno, and countless other styles of music…

  • [PREMIERE] BSN Posse – Magic Portal (ft. Metafloor)

    May 21, 2020 Peter Merritt

    If you’ve been following the sounds of footwork, juke, and 160 bpm bass music for a while now, you’re surely familiar with Spain-based producer duo BSN Posse. Although footwork obviously has its roots in Chicago, the BSN Posse boys have been influential in bringing that sound to a global audience, especially in Europe, while paying proper…

  • Modul8 pays respect to jungle and soul with a footwork twist on “2L8”

    May 7, 2020 Peter Merritt

    Berlin-based imprint Through These Eyes has been a leading influence in the deeper sounds of 160-170 bpm for years now, across the spectrum of halftime, jungle, footwork, drum & bass, and beat music. Featuring releases from Booms and Claps favorites like Digid, TMSV, Folding City, and Sun People, most of their sought-after exclusive record releases sell out almost…

  • BnC Mix 050: Anna Morgan

    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…

  • BnC Mix 050: Hyroglifics

    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…

  • [PREMIERE] Anna Morgan, Kabuki, & Rider Shafique – Natural Vibe

    March 27, 2020 Peter Merritt

    We’ve been following Germany’s Kabuki for a few years now, and it’s always a treat when he releases a new installment in his “Beat Excursions” collection. The stylistic range, unique and interesting collaborations, and cohesive sound of these releases are always impressive, and the most recent chapter, “Beat Excursions #5” is no different. Today’s premiere comes…

  • [PREMIERE] Sigrah delivers “Bad Habits” single from debut full-length LP “This is Letting Go”

    February 19, 2020 Peter Merritt

    The idea of writing a full-length album isn’t very common for producers in today’s electronic music landscape, and for good reason. Media is consumed at such an incredibly fast rate in 2020, and single tracks barely even get a full listen most of the time. Even the way we consume music in the live setting…

  • [PREMIERE] HomeSick – Ampgain

    February 18, 2020 Peter Merritt

    If you haven’t been paying attention to Alberta, CA’s HomeSick, now is the time to shape up. For years, he’s been consistently releasing some of the most unique productions across the spectrum of jungle, juke/footwork, bass music beats, DnB, and some other stuff that, to be quite honest, we’re not really even sure what to…

    January 28, 2020 Peter Merritt

    When I think of up and coming artists in the Pacific Northwest, two names instantly come to mind: Seattle-based producers Xakra and Klippee have both been making waves all across the bass music spectrum lately, with huge releases on Encrypted Audio and Lifestyle Music respectively, big shows from The Black Box in Denver all the way to…
