Cropper marks the 10th release for Blah Blah Blah, the longstanding club night from Brighton turned label. The resident at:Found, Trix and Regression Sessions, Cropper has carved out a direct cut of UK bass at its finest and the partnership with BBB only heightens the immediacy of this new release. With its crawling bass layered throughout, the seemingly imposing rumble is lightened by the bittersweet vocals.
Albeit Cropper's musical upbringing came in the form of a classical education, mastering the flute and sax, the transitional understanding of producing lead him to a path of discovery with DJing and going to D&B clubs at the age of 16. In London this inevitably leads to the offerings of FWD and Plastic People, a self confessed big part of Cropper's sound, one that lines him suitably against a number of his contemporary UK producers.
Blah Blah Blah (BBB) is a party that was founded in the summer of 2007 by four local Brighton (UK) DJs who decided to combine forces and inject some fresh adventure into their local party scene. This then spawned the BBB label in which to best represent their enthusiasm for unearthing new and exciting artists and producers, the tenth release marks a milestone for any indie label and tee's us up for the next 10 releases.
