39 Must See Acts at Glastonbury 2017 – Playlist It's that time again, nope not complaining that it's too hot and then subsequently complaining the hot weather never lasts, it's Glastonbury time of course. This will be our 6th visit to Worthy Farm and in time honoured tradition we've compiled a last minute playlist of who we're hoping to catch. This years playlist covers everything from punk, through country to pop and beyond. It's obvious, its random, it includes Busted, yes Busted...who doesn't secretly love the Year 3000, and it is of course banging. Considering our playlist includes 39 different artists we're not going to waste your ... Read more / Preview track

Listen New Music:  Mathew Jonson, Bicep, Hodge, Daphni New Music from 4 top line names: Mathew Jonson - The Prophet, Bicep - Aura, Hodge - No Single Thing and Daphni - Face to Face. All naturally caught our eye due to the names involved but not necessarily our ear. There are no stinkers here, no point wasting words on a stinker. That said do all 4 pass our - 'would we pay to own it on vinyl', test? Mathew Jonson - The Prophet Opening with what can only be described as true analog noodling The Prophet suggests Mathew Jonson is in free form mode once again. For anyone who watched his FACTmag against the clock video will know that Mr ... Read more / Preview track

Dynamic percussive House: Novio Dub Tribe – Kakiuchi Dub If thumping kicks, crisp percussion, deep atmospherics, strong groove and smatterings of melody make you go weak at the knee's, then you may want to sit down before spinning todays recommendation: Novio Dub Tribe - Kakiuchi Dub. Novio Dub Tribe - Kakiuchi Dub is the lead track from the AKIBA EP and it's Microhouse at its finest, well at least we think it is, as truth be told Microhouse is not a term we use that often. And with that in mind perhaps a better analogy would be to compare this record with an elaborate DJ Drum Tool or a bass led Pearson Sound, minus the perplexing the twists and ...

Minimal Tech-House hypnosis from Paris: YYY – YYY 797A Salut... Need some bouncing, grooving, minimal tech-house? Then Parisian born YYY - YYY 797A may just be your jam. It's most certainly been ours since featuring their similarly titled YYY 398A in the 47th edition of the WeAreBlahBlahBlah mixtape series. And because of that feature YYY France has now become one of those enigmatic underground labels that we hope can become the pièce de résistance of our record collection. Like 'YYY 398 A' which you can preview , YYY 797A has an immediate head nodding, toe tapping bounce to it. Suggesting that YYY, who ever they may be, have ... Read more / Preview track

Cheap Drum Machines & Rejected Synths: Morgan Geist – Megaprojects Morgan Geist is one of those names that at BBB we've heard about a million times, but in truth know very little about. Some of you may also be thinking, yeah I know that name, but... Whilst others will be shaking their heads in disbelief. Truth is everyone is a  DJ / Producer these days! Laptop, playlist = DJ. However like this paragraph, know the name, don't know the name, is ultimately irrelevant, it should be the music that counts, and Morgan Geist - Megaprojects Two counts. Having just said - 'a name shouldn't count', we have to admit that the reason we clicked play was in fact ... Read more / Preview track

Minimal tech-house glory: Makcim & Levi Remix via Mountain People You know that House music that is often called Deep House where the DJ turns the bass off and then turns the bass back on to get your hands in the air? Well, technically this is that type of record. However to leave our description there would be an unfair generalisation of this sound, the DJs who play it, and the record featured here: Mountain People 011.2 – Makcim & Levi Remix. In truth a better genre classification, as used by Phonica and Juno, would be Minimal / Tech-House. A classification that indicates that what you’re actually getting will be stripped back, mostly likely ... Read more / Preview track

Bicep’s exceedingly tasty: T&P – Hail Falls (Hammer Remix) When dance music burst onto the UK music scene in the late 80’s early 90’s it was unashamedly party music. Although underground it was big on hooks. Be that hook a vocal, piano or 303 it had one purpose in mind – to make your dance. A fact that T&P – Hail Falls (Hammer Remix), whole heartedly embraces. However unlike the late 80’s, early 90’s we now live in an era where an over indulgence in catchy hooks may result in you thinking – ‘what baked goods could I throw at my audience this evening’… A line of thought that whilst potentially lucrative may ultimately result ...

Mall Grab – FACT Mixtape + GhettoHouseDrumMachine Like DJ Seinfeld, Mall Grab is another DJ/Producer with an innate ability to write and play breathlessly enthusiastic House Music.

As we suggested earlier Mall Grab is an artist who appears to operate with a freedom and exuberance that's almost impossible to ignore, unless ... Read more / Preview track
