Bop has always been a couple of steps ahead in his quest to blend drum and bass with his own favourite sounds from minimal techno, ambient and microfunk.
Playing with deep, atmospheric sounds, Bop shows that drum and bass isn’t a one-dimensional genre but is actually rife with a new generation of listeners and producers all bringing their own sounds to the scene.
This podcast was made for Gardarika, an underground D+B label based in St. Petersburg.
