Bloom Bap #1603: Dreaming At The Function

Bloom Bap is the flowering outgrowth of Hip-Hop’s boom bap roots. There wasn’t a name for the sounds coming from what is now known worldwide as the ‘beat scene’. I gave these ineffable sounds this name early on as a way to describe it and make it easily identifiable in my own music library. It includes things that might otherwise be called Electro-Soul, Chill TRVP, Dirt Wave, Lo-fi, Fonk, Dubstep, R&Bass, Nu Deep House, Future Bass, and of course Hip-Hop. Bloom Bap is genre pushing, forward thinking music that is nourished by it’s past. It comes from the dirt, it may still be dirty, it might be beautiful… it might be carnivorous and eat anything fly… it may inspire awe one moment and gnaw on your face the next. There are as many species of plant life as there are beats. The Bloom Bap mix show is botany class for beat heads.
