• ZEKE BEATS Overheated My Reactor With His Meltdown EP

    April 15, 2016 Ben

    Australia’s ZEKE BEATS is no stranger to us, as part of our inaugural BnC Mix, his turntablism and blistering beats set a high bar for all mixes to follow. Now that our hipster credentials are shored up (we heard him first you plebs!), I can say that ZEKE’s newest on Terrorhythm is a vicious piece of work.…

  • Terrorhythm Makes Waves with Noah B’s Night’s Edge EP

    January 26, 2016 Ben

    Terrorhythm boss Plastician has been supporting “wave” music on his radio show for quite some time, but his relationship with the loosely-defined genre grew closer after his fantastic “Lights Out” mix heavily featured the sound. “Wave”, or whatever you want to call it (we’ve called music like this “sadboy beats” within the blog) isn’t new or revolutionary,…

  • The OriGinALz – Vanilla Cake Island EP

    July 30, 2015 Ben

    California’s The OriGinALz have been regulars on the West Coast festival circuit for a good while, but their past dalliances in bass music are seriously out-shined by the purple majesty of their latest EP on Saturate Records. Maybe they’ve been keeping their best material on lock for a proper label, or maybe Saturate just inspired them to…

  • Walton Bulldozes All Soundboys with Flute Riddim

    July 13, 2015 Ben

    There are few artists who manage the level of consistent quality Walton has demonstrated over his career. Whether it’s his 2011 EP on Hyperdub, his 2013 LP on the same label or the couple of UK bass bangers on he dropped with Keysound (Homage and Cool It VIP), every piece of this man’s catalog is a must-own. Walton’s new EP on Pinch‘s venerable Tectonic Recordings…

  • Plastician Has New Tracks With Skepta And Jammz And You Should Be Paying Attention

    July 2, 2015 Ben

    Plastician might be the hardest working person in bass music. Between his weekly Rinse show, running Terrorhythm (seemingly single-handed) and being a new(ish) father it’s surprising he has any time for the studio, yet here he is making back-to-back power moves. Last week he premiered “London Living” with Jammz, combining one of the hottest MCs of…

  • Grime and All Its Friends: A Seasonal Summary

    June 12, 2015 Ben

    It’s been a glorious year for those of us following the glowing and growing grime game. With the gravitas of the internet hype machine behind it, grime has become the go-to descriptor for a swath of sounds only tangentially related to the genre (why do you think I put grime in the title?). This spring has…

  • 3 Ways Once Upon A Festival Will Be Better Than Foreverland

    June 1, 2015 zac

    While I’ve been to several different festivals over the years, last year was the first time I got a chance to to experience a festival in it’s inaugural year. Foreverland was announced towards the end of the season, right when I thought my summer had already wound down. The festival had a heavy focus on…

  • BnC Mix 007: Moniker

    May 25, 2015 Ben

    My first exposure to Moniker came via our first BnC Mix, courtesy Bios and Zeke Beats. “Bogus” came in after Zeke’s infamous “Drugz”, and held its own with a banging beat and some of the glitchiest arcade bleeps in the game. I was worried this beat was lost when their laptop was stolen late last year, wiping away…
