BnC Mix 050: Anna Morgan

Cross-cultural connections are more valuable than gold in the music scene. Jungle and footwork are great on their own, but together? That’s where the magic happens. R&B? Cool. Grime? Great. R&B/Grime fusion? Sign us UP. Rap? Yup. Rock? Yeah… Well, maybe we could have just skipped the 90’s/2000’s rap-rock era and the whole world would’ve been just fine, but you get my point. LA-based (via NYC) Anna Morgan brings those cross-cultural connections to life through her work as a producer, DJ, label-head (shoutout Worst Behavior Recordings), promoter, and even fellow blog curator (The Footwork Jungle!!!). She draws on inspiration from all over the world, with a focus in high-energy and uptempo club music. Drum & bass, dancehall, electro, footwork, rap, afrobeat, ghettotech, dubstep, and wonky beat music all make appearances in the sphere of Anna Morgan’s influence, whether it be a party she’s throwing, a DJ mix she’s piecing together, or a tune she’s writing. With today’s offering, Anna uses our mix series as a canvas to blend all of those influences into an hour-long journey through her world of soundsystem culture and infectious energy. The work truly speaks for itself, so I’ll leave it at that: we’re proud to present […]

BnC Mix 049: Hyroglifics

Today’s installment in the Booms and Claps Mix Series comes to us from Bristol-based uptempo bass music producer Hyroglifics, and while most would consider him first-and-foremost a drum and bass producer, he’s not quite so easy to categorize. He exploded onto the scene six years ago with his freshman excursion, “BINARY Vol. 1” on the widely respected Critical Sound label. This release took the world of “DnB adjacent” music by storm with two absolutely gully halftime 170bpm bangers (“Killamanaman” and “Bay City Ballers Club) that quickly garnered support from legends like Om Unit, Ivy Lab, Sam Binga, and Alix Perez. Ever since then, he’s been tracing the lines between drum and bass, hip hop, jungle, trap beats, dub, footwork, and everything in between, and has explored beyond his home at Critical Sound to Flexout Audio, Perez’s 1985 Music, and Fracture’s Astrophonica, achieved Red Bull Music Academy alum status, created a new beat music alias Rippps (with a release on the legendary Alpha Pup Records to boot) and toured all over the world. Most recently, his collaborative EP, “BS6″with Detroit-bred Sinistarr (BnC Mix Series alum!) was released on Sherelle and Naina’s new London-based label Hooversound, one of the most exciting fresh imprints of the year.

Fracture @ 170, RNDM, Moscow 08.03.2020

I don’t usually upload recordings of shows but here’s a 3hr set I did in Moscow a couple of weeks ago. Listen to it while isolating or working from home. This was the last gig I did before the Covid shut down. Really cool night with a wonderfully open and engaging crowd which allowed me to go on a real journey. Joining the dots between Electro to 140 to Jungle to Turbo to DNB to Ambient and back again. One of the most enjoyable sets I’ve done for a while. Much love to the 170bpm.ru crew and RNDM for bringing me out. Download

Various Artists – 20 (Mix)

Various Artists – 20 Released 20/02/2020 Buy the Limited Edition Celebratory T-Shirt & Get ’20’ Free: https://ift.tt/3ayqJxl Buy & Stream: http://bit.ly/APHADIGILP002 What better way to start 2020 than with a celebration of the 20 EPs we’ve released to date. I sat down and went through all of them, chose a track from each and put together this 20 track compilation and mix. We also got Utile on board to design a limited T-Shirt to go a long with it. This is by no means a ‘best of’, I just thought the tracks joined the dots nicely and plotted a route from where we started to where we are now. From the humble beginnings of Clissold to the expansion and the introduction of new artists like Moresounds and Sully via the cosmic slide guitar of Customtone. We’ve released Jungle, Drum & Bass, Footwork, 140 stuff, Electro, whatever it is you call the music that Tehbis & Touchy Subject make and some somehow it all hangs together. What’s nice is that with the release of 2019’s ‘dgoHn EP’ it’s kinda come full circle, so let’s do it all again. I’ve also created a 1Hr Mix that includes all these tracks and included […]
