As a DJ he’s performed at some of the biggest events in Europe alongside some of
the heavyweights of DnB, Dubstep, Breakbeat and Techno. From DJ Hype, Nicky
Blackmarket Virus Syndicate, Modeselektor, DJ Tonio and Reso to Total Science,
Son Of Kick, The Trickaz and Benny Page to name a few, BPSK has certainly
earned the respect of his peers. The breathtakingly refreshing Firetown EP is proper “Jungle” in its purest form. You could certainly be forgiven for imagining you were at an Amazon Rave in the Cue club, Birmingham or at Pure X at the Sanctuary in Milton Keynes UK. The style is 1990’s but the production quality is certainly 2030.
Firetown, is a comic book journey of the senses with a theme that carries
through the entire works- The Anti Hero City on fire- A real banger driven by an inimitable sub bass, an almost “military-esque” Kick and super sharp hats. The sirens and warbling synths add a sense of urgency to the E.P. – An absolute Monster and definitely one for the dancefloor. This is true “pull up” material!
