    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…

  • 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…

    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…

  • EDGEM’s Secret Garden EP and the Art of Emotionally-Actualized Grime Bangers

    March 17, 2015 Ben

    We live in a time of flourishing grime. Between Skepta and Novelist playing the young priest/ old priest of MC-led grime, Logos and Mumdance re-purposing the entire hardcore continuum to forward their abstract nu-vision, and Murlo and Dark0 repping the sweetboy riddim-makers of the game, there have been a ton of words written about the vitality and…

    November 20, 2014 Ben

    It’s been a good year for grime and experimental club music, many words have been written by better writers (check The Astral Plane and Truants) regarding this continuum, so I’ll spare you the philosophizing and Night Slugs name-checking and do what US blogs do best: make a list. Here are five recent releases that are taking…

  • 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,…
