BBB Recommendations for Glastonbury 2016… Glastonbury is a bit like a cuppa on a hot day, the Queens speech at Christmas or England missing a penalty - it is a fundamental part of the very fabric that makes us British, and we at BBB are proudly attending for the 5th time this year. And in time honoured tradition we've left our preparations for departure to the very last minute, which considering this years forecast - rain would you believe!, might be an error. However we can't possibly anticipate such travails when we have a lineup longer than the que to get your phone charged, to sift through. In no particular order: Mosh, ... Read more / Preview track

Get your TUNES pressed on VINYL for free with ‘VF Selects’ As Beck would say 'Wow', for once an initiative to get your music noticed that doesn't require you to essentially promote a third party by pimping out all your friends and family via social media. This is a competition that's not about FACT Mag, Vinyl Factory or even their supporting crowdfunding site BORN.com, in fact (no pun intended) it's not really a competition at all as you don't even have to put forward your own music.  It is simply an opportunity to see deserving new music pressed to vinyl, for FREE. Instinctively, especially if you're British, you're probably wondering what's the ... Read more / Preview track

Lnrdcroy ‘Ooze City’ (Mood Hut) | New Music Ever heard the Japanese term 'Wabi-Sabi', no, dont worry neither had we until we read Lnrdcroy's 2014 interview with Juno Plus. It's basic interpretation is 'the acceptance of transience and imperfection' or the acceptance of beauty within imperfection. A friend of Leonard Campbell aka Lnrdcroy introduced the concept to him in 2014 as a theory of dealing with the frustrations of writing music. The idea being that writing music is as much about the process as it is the finished composition and therefore if what you have been writing is not meeting, or falling short of your initial ...

Todd Terje ‘Snooze 4 Love’ (Dixon Remix) | New Music It would appear Todd Terje has dug out his brightly coloured summer shirt and emphatically decided its time to get summery. First we had the jaunty acidic 'Beranek - Dra Te Hælvete' (Todd Terje acid radio edit), rapidly followed by The Big Cover Up EP and now  'Snooze 4 Love', the b-side to his 2011 break through moment Ragysh, gets a Dixon remix. Officially Dixons work is considered a remix, however it feels more like a retouch to us, other than a heavier kick and perhaps a more crystalline and sharp final finish Snooze 4 Love 2016 is really just Snooze 4 Love 2011 with a little more ...

NEWS: DJ Shadow, Nils Frahm, Nonkeen, Midland, Tessela, Bicep With so much new music flooding our inbox and browser history, and considering that BBB is predominately a one man band these days, no accordions mind, we figured it best to do a weekly round up from time to time to ensure maximisation of your illegal social media time during office hours... This weeks round up includes a rather unexpected meeting of minds with a sinister DJ Shadow & Nils Frahm collaboration 'Bergschrund'. Not content with just working with the cut & paste master Nils Frahm also announces a second Nonkeen LP 'Oddments of the Gamble' via the ever forward thinking ... Read more / Preview track

Denis Sulta – MSNJ (Jackmaster DJ-Kicks Exclusive) Forget Berlin, LA, London, Bristol even Donald Trump it would appear that actually Glasgow Scotland is the centre of the Universe. At least for now anyway... Last month we featured Denis Sulta with his record 'Nein Fortiate' and here we are again travelling back to the Highlands with his exclusive Jackmaster DJ Kicks kicker 'My Soul Needs Justice' or MSNJ. Like 'Nein Fortiate' Sulta once again combines underground credibility with another irresistible hook, in this case a 90's sounding Moby esq vocal loop replaces the analog wizardry of 'Nein Fortiate', and like a playful 90's Moby it's ...

Mall Grab – Can’t Take It No More (Steel City Dance Discs) For the Urban among you, you'll now that the term 'Mall Grab' actually refers to someone who generally see's their skateboard as a fashion accessory as apposed to a mode of transport or an extreme sport. Generally they can be found herding at key social hubs, such as an Australian Mall, and are easily distinguishable by their unmistakable markings: High level of grooming, overly skinny jeans and double strapped 'East Pack' back packs. The skinny jeans are a key identifier as these will prevent any overly vigorous skating, should the desire ever randomly arise.  All in all the term Mall ... Read more / Preview track

News: Aphex Twin – Cheetah EP (Warp Records)… As press releases go, the one Norman Records received this morning via Warp Records would appear to be one of the few actually worth receiving. No, "spectral harmonies bring the track home, completing a whole that is as floor-ready as it is mesmeric", instead just curious 'Product Information' ambiguity that will soon, no doubt, be followed by equally curious ambiguity in the shape of new 'official' Aphex Twin music...hopefully. If not, we still love the idea of sending a random press release with no immediate explanation attached. Bravo Warp and Aphex Twin, our faith in the value of the ... Read more / Preview track
