DJ Seinfeld aka Rimbaudian – Unknown [Hardcore / House] Need a no nonsense hardcore tinged dancefloor assassinator? Then DJ Seinfeld, the man with the seemingly largest hard-drive of unreleased music in clubland, has just the weapon you're looking for. Rimbaudian - Houz Low EP . It's probably fair to say that since late 2016 and early 2017 DJ Seinfeld has easily become one of the more recognisable underground names. By which we mean that amongst his piers, Ross From Friends, DJ Boring and the like he's the one with the greater output, recognition and therefore booking potential. On this blog alone we have featured his records: DJ Seinfeld - ... Read more / Preview track

Concrete cracking Bass: Kink – Perth (Beat Mix) Running Back Oh yes. Need a drum tool that's not just a drum tool. Something that gets the pulse racing and then delivers the mother of all bass drops. Kink - Perth (Beat Mix) via Running Back Records. Kink is renowned for his live performances, live production and general propensity to write and release dancefloor winners. That said in recent times a number of his releases have passed us by without leaving much of a discernible mark. And truth be told the disco led opener falls into that same category also. A little too obvious, cliché even. However the Beat Mix is another story ... Read more / Preview track

Exclusive: Eton Messy preview ‘Cropper – Shade’ [Blah Blah Blah Rec] Cropper has returned to Blah Blah Blah Records to follow up his world wide smash ‘Forever’. Since marking BBB’s tenth release in 2013 ‘Forever’ has been snapped up by Universal, racked up half a million plays worldwide and played on Radio 1 by Pete Tong. To some such success may seem common place, or not that remarkable, however for artist and label these were very proud moments, not to mention moral boosting confirmations in their personal belief in the music they were presenting. A belief that has brought them back together for one more record. Cropper - Shade is the ... 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

Essential New Music – Bandcamp Bandcamp is essentially what Soundcloud was 8 years ago, fresh, exciting and all about discovering new music. Unfortunately Soundcloud has since lost some of that original lustre, allowing Bandcamp to step into the breach. Like Soundcloud in its prime, BC is a platform for expression and discovery. If you've written some music, but dont have a record deal then Bandcamp is where you need to be. That's not to say that Bandcamp is just wall-to-wall wannabe try hards who should just get a real job. It's also a great community for signed performers and established labels. But thats only words, ... 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 ...

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

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. House Music that will have you dancing without fear of being pretentious or generic. FACT Mag has managed to capture this sound in all its funk and soul led glory with their Mall Grab - FACT Mixtape. In addition to this Mall Grabs label 'Steel City Dance Discs' has just released its 4th record: GhettoHouseDrumMachine. 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
