If you haven't heard them i recommend the album "late nite cinema" one of the finest pieces of electronic music i have ever heard also "a heap of broken images" another amazing piece of music.

Their shit is so balanced, mellow yet epic, fast yet slow, its really something special.

Top 5

1. Lord of our Vice

2. Shoot you dead.

3. Days are years

Yeah slow burning lights is a tricky one.

My friend once called songs from that album rapist choons. hahah

I checked out the singer and its weird she must be good friends with BSBD because her band is not very major at all, two or three bad quality, couple hundred view videos, thats about it.

The Jean Grae Joints they did sound pretty tight aswell

those 2 youngsters are THE most promising production team of the last ten years imo

everything they try is pure magic

even when you "just" listen to the intrumental versions of their collabo albums you get taken away to a whole new dimension

"Late night cinema" is classic and the the title is just perfect: it's a magical soundtrack to be played in your car when you just feel like driving around all night .

SID
12-25-2009, 06:43 AM

Heroin for God is another dope one. What I like about their music is that it starts off small and minimalistic and by the end of the song it's like 20 different elements joined together to make one gigantic masterpiece. I feel like if you were to take each individual element by itself it wouldn't make sense but when you hear the finished product it's truly amazing.

I always felt the Tokyo track would potentially be a nice mainstream hit if it some how found a way to radio stations and such

Its funny coz those are the two tracks from the album i play the most.

It's a innovative and relaxing album for sure, i think it just gets a bit repetitive with the singers passionate strained vocals.

All of their tracks have that build up to them, different pieces float in and out.

Shoot You Dead is another personal favourite of mine.

I think i've been the biggest pusher of BSBD in nw London.

There so good i want them to be big.

I tell everyone about BSBD, their music can be listened to by ANYONE, its digital art, and that's another thing that pisses me off, how underated producers are as artists.

It takes so much more to produce a immaculate piece of electronic music then paint or sculpt or design.

Plus you have to be really intune to be able to flow and hear music like a producer, some are born with the ear, but most aren't.

Chloroform has got to be BSBD's masterpiece in my opinion.

I discovered BSBD through Hell Razah's Razah's Ladder, their polished sound and unique ideas set them apart from alot of hip hop I was hearing at the time.

For producers who do hip hop that are also trained musicians, I look at them as one of the best in that category, aside from being just dope producers in general. I can tell by things I hear in their hip hop production they are musicians, from the playing ability over the samples to the composing aspects, it's interesting to hear.

I still have to check out their album with Jean Grae, I've heard one of their instrumental albums where their strictly orchestrating and composing like a cinema and it was deep.

SID
02-13-2010, 02:00 PM
The Jean Grae album had some incredibly dope beats, but as far as collabs are concerned The holocaust one was the best.

Amazing epic scale beats that perfectly compliment holocausts style.

If you havent heard Slow Burning Lights i reccomend it, it has grown on me tremendously

You know, i never did listen to any of the collab albums BSBD did.

I don't really know why, i guess i was just satisfied listening to Late Night Cinema over and over.

I'll make sure i at least check out that Hell Razah album. Normally i can't stand Holocaust (and i think I Catch Fire would be better as an instrumental), but i should probably check that out too just for the beats.

Brain Cells is probably my favourite track of their with an MC on it.

A heap of broken images is just as good as late nite cinema, if not better.

Free mixtape from BSBD

http://official.fm/tracks/show/153961

1. Untitled
A yet-to-be-titled track from our forthcoming and second instrumental album, NOIR.

2. Carl Sagan (Featuring Alexander Chen)
From our new album, Third Party. It features lyrics and vocals by Alexander Chen (Boy In Static). There’s an amazing stop motion video in production for this song, directed by our guy Austin Saya. The video also features seasoned actress Elisha Skorman, who’s done backup vocals for Beck and Nigel Godrich. She’s also been in CSI and The Young and The Restless (fuck, yeah).

3. Untitled
This is another untitled track that we will probably use for NOIR. It’s in its beginning stages as an instrumental, but was originally used on a Third Party song (guess which one).

4. Cynic’s Cough
Another dark Third Party song with Alex Chen. We were hella excited to do some dark tracks with Alex, because his music is typically very bright and upbeat, and we thought his smooth harmonics would be a good contrast with a grimey backdrop.

5. My Work Is Done (Unreleased Version)
This was the preliminary version of “My Work Will Be Done,” off of our first instrumental album, Late Night Cinema. It became something else entirely, but we just recently revisited this version and still like it quite a bit. This was produced back in 2006 when we were living together in the North Bay Area. More recently we used a version of it to remix an AZ track.

6. Slow Years
This is an instrumental track off of Third Party. We usually think of our music in terms of images and colors. The cover explains some of the colors we imagine as the music. But for the image, I think of a space ocean. Yeah, I just made that up. A space ocean.

7. Untitled
This is an instrumental off of NOIR. To me, it is signature BSBD—a mix of soulful ambience, post-rock crescendos, and electro down South rhythms.

8. Call To Arms
A Third Party song we wanted to be the single, but were convinced otherwise. It doesn’t really matter because we never make songs in terms of singles. My favorite bits of this song are the unexpected drum fill sample and the breakdown at the end. I love Alex’s cadence on this song too.

9. Untitled
We started this beat, like, two weeks ago.

10. Threads of Gold
An instrumental from Third Party. When I first started working on this, it started bothering me because It reminded me too much of M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes.” You hear that? The bass, and the guitar. Wasn’t intentional, but now I like singing “Paper Planes” over it in my head.

11. RIP PIMP C (BSBD Blend)
This is a remix made shortly after Pimp C died. This is one of my favorite rap songs so I wanted to take it and make it more of a mourning song. And the singing on this song is some of the best I’ve ever heard in a rap song. The guy should be famous. I love how his voice and melody sounds completely natural amongst the organs and guitars.
