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

WeAreBBB EP37 Mixed Waifs & Strays In partnership with the 'Nest' we are co-sharing this exclusive mixtape by the Waifs & Strays.

If you are new to the Waifs & Strays check their "Body Shiver" release on Jamie Jones Hot Creations Label (Out Now) - Waifs & Strays - Body Shiver. You can also catch ... Read more / Preview track

Maurice Donovan – Call My Name (White) Maurice Donovan aka Pearson Sound has just dropped this little house beauty on a limited vinyl only release. It would appear that Phonica have the scoop on this one, so if you're hoping to bag a copy I'd get in quick. 'Call My Name' epitomizes everything that is good in the re-surgence of House, infectious looping vocal, 808 snares and claps, french touch style filtering and sub laden bass. Expect to hear this one being spun by anyone who can get his or her hands on it, including us. Listen and Buy - Maurice Donovan - Call My Name Related Post Maurice Donovan - Babeh/Satisfied ...

Electronic Artist of the Week #10 – Waifs & Strays Waif & Strays are another Bristolian DJ/Production outfit that look set to make waves in the ever evolving House market. It is clear from their music that they have a deep knowledge and passion for those early 90's records that birthed dance culture, and like Julio Bashmore before them they have taken that sound and freshened it up for a present day audience. However as the hype continues to build and build does the emergence of the Waifs & Strays and other such artists suggest we are on the brink of House saturation and the all too common genre back lash.

L-Vis 1990 – Lost In Love Feat. Javeon McCarthy "Lost In Love" is the first single to be taken from L-Vis 1990's forthcoming debut album, Neon Dreams. Lost In Love is a shimmering vocal House track that makes no attempt to ease in fans of his more underground gritty sound. For many this new direction may prove too much too handle, however L-Vis 1990 is not trying to fool anyone and Lost in Love is clear indication of what to expect from the full LP. However if the thought of shimmering vocal house makes your toes curl, dont worry as the single package includes a Club Mix and a Nightslugs Allstars Dub Mix. Released - September 26th ...
