• Hypha and Psy Fi Turned Wiley’s “Wise Man” into a Spectral Banger

    October 31, 2015 Ben

    NorCal bass stalwarts Hypha and Psy Fi have applied their considerable talents to bootlegging Wiley‘s “Wise Man”. They’ve taken the grime anthem and laid it atop a mean dubstep beat. The eerie atmospherics and crunchy synths here make this a perfect Halloween treat. Snag the free download below, and keep an eye on these two, this…

  • Dubstep Has Been Quietly Killing It This Year

    September 22, 2015 Ben

    2015’s been a strange one: EDM’s corpse is thoroughly decayed even though no one’s got around to writing an obituary, “future bass” is a flaccid mess of bandwagon-ers, and your friend who wouldn’t shut up about deep house last year just imported a BBK shirt. The only time dubstep seems to get mentioned is shitty blogs trying to make ad…

  • Commodo ft. JME – “Shift” is out now on DEEP MEDi (+ Bonus Slowed Version)

    November 19, 2014 Ben

    Commodo. JME. DEEP MEDi. Just seeing those three names together is enough to get me all hot and bothered. Commodo is one of the most talked about producers here at BnC due to a flawless record of releases, all showcasing his off-kilter, bass-heavy vision of UK bass. While I’m happy enough just seeing Commodo finally working with an MC,…

  • 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…

  • The Widdler – Ogo EP

    June 9, 2014 Ben

    The Widdler is one of a select few producers able to make their music sound like you’re tripping balls when you’re not (NastyNasty is in there too). Paranoid sounds whirl around you as layers of weirdness ooze between delirious sub bass and muttered vocal samples. Your mind is moist clay, and The Widdler is a shirtless Patrick…

  • Distance – Straight UP (MADNESS)

    April 4, 2014 Ben

    As one of the original dons of dubstep, Distance has been killing the bassweight game since before most ravers hit puberty. That experience shows on his latest upload, Straight UP, a mental wonky beat with a dark underbelly. The screwface will be very real when this is played out. If you’re new to the deeper…

  • LAXX Interview – Delving Into The Weird

    February 13, 2014 Ben

    LAXX has just released his mental Step One EP on dubstep powerhouse Never Say Die Records. Somewhere between dubstep and trap, LAXX describes his sound as “twitch”,which perfectly describes the screw-faced convulsions that overcome the dancefloor when his tunes are dropped. I had the chance to pick LAXX’s brain recently regarding the method to his madness,…
