• Artikal Music Compilation – The Best Dubstep Release of 2014

    October 15, 2014 Ben

    Spreading himself between his own productions, a radio show, running a label and battering crowds with heavy dj sets (including in our own backyard at Emissions), J:Kenzo has been one of dubstep’s greatest (and busiest) champions. As a fellow dad, I’m in awe of this man’s productivity. J:Kenzo’s newest contribution to the genre comes via his label, Artikal…

  • Cam’Ron – Oh Boy (Ivy Lab’s 2020 Bootleg)

    October 6, 2014 Peter Merritt

    If you’ve been following Booms and Claps at all for the past year, you’ve probably noticed that we have quite the affinity for West Coast bass music. Although the West Coast is where our hearts lie, our heads are often found swimming across the Atlantic to the clubs of the United Kingdom, where the beloved sounds of halftime…

  • Artist Interview: G Jones

    October 3, 2014 Ben

    G Jones is known for being hard to pigeonhole. It’s definitely electronic music at its finest and it makes us dance, but to call it EDM or dubstep or trap misses the intricacy and variety found within his sets.  I’ve always referred to his music as minimalist triangulated purple bass because of this exact quandary…

  • ConRank – Exhale Therapy EP is a Breath of Fresh Air

    October 1, 2014 Ben

    If I were to play bass music matchmaker, I couldn’t come up with a better couple than Saturate and ConRank. They’ve had a couple flirtations in the past, but now things are serious and this is one couple sure to keep the neighbors up all night. Representing the UK, via Shanghai, ConRank has already served up 808 bliss for bass…

  • EXCLUSIVE: Emilian Dubz – Ghetto

    September 24, 2014 Peter Merritt

    Several weeks ago, while exploring the dark depths of Soundcloud, I came across a young Argentinian producer by the name of Emilian Dubz. His tunes, while retaining a modern bass music influence, immediately reminded me of the deep wonky sound commonplace in late 2000’s dubstep. His Soundcloud page had under 1,000 followers, which, as I’m sure…

  • Subp Yao – City of Dreams

    September 24, 2014 Mike Vincent

    Last week Dutch producer Subp Yao dropped City of Dreams on us, and it’s a heavy hitter. If you’re a fan of trap, future bass, and/or club music then this is a release you definitely should give a chance. City of Dreams is his first EP release on the Dutch label and artist collective Doggtown, which consists of the…

    Foreverland Profiles: Interviews with CloZee and Reuben Smith

    September 15, 2014 zac

    It has been said, “It takes a village to raise a child”. What does it take to birth a new event like Foreverland? Lots of passionate and talented people of course! Continuing with the festival’s theme of duality, I talked to two people who will play very different roles in making the magic happen. CloZee has traveled all the way…

  • Bleep Bloop – Feel The Cosmos EP

    September 10, 2014 Ben

    August 15th, most of the Booms and Claps crew converged on Portland, Oregon to partake in a holy sacrament of bass administered by the Reverend Bleep Bloop. Though he shared the stage with fellow men of the cloth Eprom, Buku and Yheti, Bleep Bloop’s space-bass orgy made the biggest impression of them all. The sheer power of his 808 drops…

  • Baptize Your Heathen Earholes In Sudanim’s Pleasure Flood

    September 5, 2014 Ben

    *I highly recommend listening to this with monitors and a sub, or at least bump it in your car. This sort of music needs to immerse you to be fully appreciated.* When you say a track is “banging”, what do you mean? Does it physically batter you into whimpering submission? Sudanim thinks it should. His…
