Bass Music Culture
For more than a decade Badbwoy BMC has helped define Bass Music Culture in Houston, Texas. First, as one of Texas’ most sought after jungle/drum ‘n bass/ dubstep DJs, and most recently as a Producer.
BMC’s production talent led quickly to numerous digital, vinyl, and CD releases on respected underground labels such as: Dirty Circuit; Shift; Stupid Fly; Betamorph and his own label Eye-Ten Recordings. His track titled “The Attack” was also featured on the video game Amped: Freestyle Snowboarding 2 for Xbox console.
Badbwoy BMC’s musical influences are rooted in reggae, and hip hop, and his resume includes membership in Tha Purrin Lion Sound Flex Crew (a group of some of Houston’s most respected old school junglists, whose dance parties helped pioneer the Bass Music Culture in Houston); publishing one of North America's only drum’n bass magazines to date(Tha Pride 1997-2001); founding Texas Dub (a crew of Houston dubstep producers and DJs; 2007), and co-founding Eye-Ten Recordings, with crew mate Intager (currently on its 5th release; 2009).
Some of his side projects include teaming up with Rebel Crew members Joe B. and DJ Suma to form the musical group Heavy Heights (“Truth & Rights” LP CD/Digital; Starlight; 2007), as well as releasing a collaborative 5 track compilation with former Texas Dub crew member Bukkah called F8 (“F8”EP; Dirty Circuit; 2010). In his spare time, tha Badbwoy has also worked on remixes for local vocalists Karina Nistal (“Nothing For Me”), Shina Rae (“Touch”) and indie band Posr (“Clairvoyant”).
In addition to producing original drum’n bass and dubstep tracks and remixes for a multitude of artists and acts, BMC is consistently booked to headline massive raves, club shows, and special events throughout the South. BMC also finds time to host a biweekly internet radio show the second and fourth Tuesday of the month (Traffic on sub.fm).
With an untouchable arsenal of exclusive, original and collaboratively produced remixes, his live shows display his all-star level of talent locking double drops; chopping beats; syncopating sounds in unison, and making seamless mixes that keep the dance floor packed in any venue.
Recently, BMC signed with the South’s most famous independent hip hop label: SwishaHouse (http://www.swishahouse.info). Recognized worldwide for bringing Houston's own chopped and screwed music to the forefront of hip hop, SwishaHouse has once again positioned itself as the label on the cutting edge of the music industry. The first set of remixes produced under the SwishaHouse label include work done with SwishaHouse’s beautiful and talented first lady and number one dame in the game, Surreall (“I’m A Model,” “Know How To”); Paul Wall (“I Rep Texas,” “Break Dem Boyz Off,” “Skillz”), and Archie Lee (“At The Bar”). SwishaHouse has plans to release a new mixtape that includes 24 remixes of classic HTown anthems— 18 produced by BMC and the remainder composed by Texas’ own Chango, Suma, Chi, Parson and Dread Foxx.
BMC has earned respect as one of the hardest working and popular DJ/Producer/Promoters in the Southern United States, and a mainstay of Houston’s Bass Music Culture.
Bear witness to a mixture of sounds uniquely constructed to contain audible appeal that draws in underground dubstep heads, rap, and hip hop lovers alike!
