    August 8, 2016 Peter Merritt

      When one thinks of the strong curators of halftime drum and bass, footwork, autonomic hybrid bass music, and “slowfast” in 2016, many labels come to mind. Obviously, there are the heavy hitters: dBridge‘s Exit Records, Om Unit‘s Cosmic Bridge Recordings, Ivy Lab‘s 20/20 LDN, and the legendary Critical Music, but over the past few years, a couple other imprints have solidified themselves…

  • BnC Mix 015: Subp Yao

    August 2, 2016 Mike Vincent

    Excitement levels were high when I found out one of my favorite European producers, Subp Yao, was going to be playing Emissions this year. It’s always extremely exciting when festivals book European talent that you would otherwise not be able to see on the regular touring circuit. Hype was high for his daytime set, and he definitely…

    July 20, 2016 Mike Vincent

    PROKO, AKA Troy Prokopowich, AKA half of The OriGinALz has been dropping some serious heat over the past 4 months. It’s always nice to see an artist take a step back and go in an entirely different direction. The halftime sound has been permeating into the west coast bass scene over the past year, and we’re not complaining…

  • BnC Mix 014: Doctor Jeep

    July 13, 2016 Peter Merritt

    July 1, 2016 Peter Merritt

    It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything on the production front from Portland, OR’s hometown hero Danny Corn, so when he told me he had an EP coming out this month when I ran into him at What the Festival a few weeks ago, it’s safe to say I was excited. (I was also probably pretty excited because…

  • TMSV Departs on Deep Space Mission With “Over Out” EP

    June 27, 2016 Peter Merritt

    Dutch producer TMSV has been pushing the deep 160/170 bpm halftime bass music sound for years, from his epic self-released 1988 EP in 2014, to countless singles, remixes, and other releases on Artikal Music, Rua Sound, and many others since then. His tunes are rinsed regularly by the heavy hitters of halftime, such as DJ Madd, Danny Scrilla, Kromestar, and J: Kenzo, so…

  • EXCLUSIVE: Moniker – Vessels

    May 27, 2016 Peter Merritt

    Almost exactly a year ago, we were contacted by Saturate Records about the possibility of having one of their new signees, a duo out of Tennessee named Moniker, participate in our guest mix series. To be honest, at the time, Moniker was largely unknown to us, but the mix they sent over was a perfect blend of the bizarre, wonky…
