Dirtyphonics definitely live up to their name with the release of their debut full-length album, Irreverence, which is out now on Dim Mak Records. The record has so many grimy bass sounds and filthy, in-your-face synth lines, you're going to need a shower after just one listen. If you haven't heard the nasty wobbles of ...
Auditory intoxication. Symphonic bliss. Programming madness. Just a few terms that come to mind after listening to Dirtyphonics' latest LP Irreverence , out now on Dim Mak . Easily the French quartet's most profound, single piece of work to date, this 10-track album will certainly go down as one of 20132s best. Irreverence explodes though bass genres with reckless disregard, scorching any preconceptions of what bass music is, or is supposed to be. If measured by BPM, the bulk of this album falls between dubstep and drum & [...]
Norwegian producer King Knut is most widely known as the producer for Foreign Beggars and The XX (in their early days). What you may not know is that he has recently branched out into solo productions, drawing on influences as disparate as 602s psychedelia and classic R&B. His new EP 'King 462 is a chirpy, upbeat collection of late-night house, sprinkled with elements of trip-hop, latin vibes and the aforementioned psychedelia and R&B. This really is a music nerd's record; one that will have die-hard music fans pouring over each and every [...]

LessThan3: You guys just got back from Stereosonic in Australia. Tell us about some of your experiences there. Metropolis: It was the first time we’d done a touring festival that went to different cities. There was an amazing vibe—there was a massive cross-section of artists from all sorts of genres all hanging out in the same area. You had Diplo chilling with Nina Kraviz and Datsik with Zedd —it was a great group of people to be around. The whole thing [...]
As it turns out, I got the chance to touch base with the dubstep surgeon himself, Doctor P , as he was making the finishing touches to the Shady Bunch EP out now on Circus Records . Chock full of guaranteed bangers like Cookie Monsta's ‘LMFA…NO’, Funtcase’s ‘Ghosts’ and Roksonix's ‘Ready To Rumble’, this latest EP definitely bangs with main floor sound. Often credited with adding a little fun to the more invasive sound that bass music took in recent times, Shaun Brockhurst has been busy over at the cirque so we handled swiftly and got [...]

Day one at the Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Bangalore saw several pumped up performances and a whole lot of love. We've got some of the highlights right here.
The Eristoff Wolves Den on day one of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender 2012, Bangalore, saw a mix of different musical styles through the afternoon and evening, and culminated in a riveting performance by London hip-hop/dubstep act Foreign Beggars. Read on for a full roundup of the day's events at the Den. Ash Roy of New Delhi EDM act Jalebee Cartel , began his set at the Eristoff Wolves Den to a small but attentive crowd. Most of Roy's music was rather reminiscent of groovy psychedelic trance (a la GMS ), and [...]
Foreign Beggars are an act which have simultaneously been labelled one of the most exciting shows in hip-hop and electronic dance music alike. They've gained a strong following with fans of bass music through countless collaborations with big name producers like Skrillex, Knife Party and Noisia, but the group will tell you they are quite unlike many of the DJ acts you find them sharing the stage with. Having made a name for themselves as hip-hop artists over the past ten years, they maintain that while they may be dabbling in bass music, Foreign Beggars will always be a rap group at the [...]
An eclectic mix of genres is nothing out of the ordinary in todays musical society, and JACK BEATS ' release of 'About To Get Fresh' featuring CHIDDY BANG & OV definitely supports that fact.

Right now, as the world is running at blink-or-you'll-miss-it levels of fads, fashions and genres of music, there are small pockets of people who are just naturally progressing with the times. Foreign Beggars are a British hip-hop group that represent exactly this. They took to underground hip-hop, but experimented with other genres as well. Ever the enthusiastic collaborators, this British group has worked with artists from bass scenes such as Shiva Soundsystem and Engine EarZ Experiment . After years of meeting and collaborating with each other (often in different countries), Foreign Beggars were [...]
Why Doesn't UK Rap Crossover to the US? Rock bands and pop artists from the UK have never had a problem crossing over to the US and experiencing tremendous popularity—look at The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Adele, Coldplay, Queen, Amy Winehouse -- just to barely scratch the surface. So, why can’t the same be said for UK rappers? Rap seems to be the one genre that cannot handle the jump to the American stage. For a society that typically idolizes anything Anglo (Royal Wedding Fever, for example) we have not yet embraced the UK rapper. Could it [...]
Oh SHIT! New Son Of Kick jam! It’s called “EOW” & features Virus Syndicate + Foreign Beggars. This is arguably one of the most colorful, diverse + energetic tunes of the year. The track’s rapid-fire vocals & use of high-pitched oscillatating “chirps” compliment the beat perfectly. The single comes along with remixes by Starkey & Noah D + an instrumental version of the original tune. Starkey does an excellent job minimizing the original to bring a more straightforward, head-nodder of a tune with heavily trap-influenced elements. His use of horns towards the end [...]
