At Beats Breaks & Bass, we’re tasked with promoting the best of today’s underground bass music. #TripleB bridges fresh, forward thinking music from exciting acts to our community via West-based platforms like BBC Introducing, Bristol Live Magazine and more, as well as hosting dances across Bristol and beyond.
Each month we’ll be sharing a handful of favourite tracks right here on BLM — check out four of the artists I’m highlighting for September, Paperchase, Allmost, Notion and Kxngs. If you’re a producer, song writer and more get your beats across to me on twitter @ThadeousM.
Kxngs had been making futuristic trap and instrumental hip-hop a long time before it was stylish and famed. I’ve been a fan of his for a few years and have seen him produce a very healthy number of amazing projects. Over time his talents and fan base have strengthened to create an undeniable and unique sound that the majority of producers today wish they could claim.
One of the most multi-talented producer, Dj and sound engineers I’ve met. A very busy guy working on releases with Bear Fresh Records, Black Butter and playing sets over seas in all directions. Martin Olsmos moved to Bristol very recently and is concentrating on his familiar brand of bass heavy dance music that fits perfectly into the scene.
I met Rob as a young producer on the rise, a few years down the line and Notion has stayed true to his sound though all the passing trends that we’ve seen in UK Bass music. Committed to a raw garage and grime sound that has seen him release with Coyote Records and Formula Records with loads more in the pipeline.
Josh’s productions are polished, innovative and keep me guessing every time he releases something new. His tracks are a cocktail blend of juke and house with a grimy lemon twist through one of the most ratchet swirly straws you could find. Pushing himself and his piers to wider audiences through the Brick Artists Agency which in less than a year after establishment is planning international tours and growing ever stronger.
