    The beatmaking/vowel-hating VNDMG teamed up with veteran Bay Area MC Joe Mousepad to release a free track this week. “Do It To Death” features some crazy sound design behind Joe Mousepad’s lyrics. The best way to enjoy this is to simply close your eyes and let the trippy sounds flow between your headphones. You can pick up “Do…

    S∆LO has been kicking ass and taking names for a while now, so it was only a matter of time until we posted up one of his tunes. His music is self-described as “ØUTER.SPACE HØØD MUSIK”, and, well, that’s exactly what it is. His most recent tune, “DRIPPN” is one of those slowed down, psychedelic tunes that…

  • Mura Masa – Lotus Eater (Free Download)

    October 27, 2014 Ben

    We’ve been fans of young Mura Masa since we heard his tracks played out at the ill-fated Trill God “festival”. His off-kilter, clanking beats have been progressing in quality ever since; every new upload revealing more of the obvious talent at Mura Masa’s fingertips. Mura Masa’s latest track comes to us free, courtesy of UK radio legend…

  • BnC Mix 001: Bios x Zeke Beats – Saturated Summer Mixtape

    October 24, 2014 Ben

    When we decided to host a Booms and Claps mix series, we wanted our first edition to double as a mission statement, representing the bass-laden and weird sounds we obsess over every day. Our ideal selector for this mission statement has always been Bios, the man in charge of BnC’s favorite label: Saturate Records. Based in Hamburg,…

  • 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,…

  • Spoken Bird – How Old Is The Wind?

    October 20, 2014 zac

    Earlier this month one of my favorite lesser known Bay Area producers, Spoken Bird released EP, How Old Is The Wind. Alex Gonzalez, the man behind the bird, is a founding member of the Chillage People Collective, who champion a “goopy” sound; thick gurgling bass lines entwined with chill atmospheres that make you groove. Although he…

  • 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…
