Saxon Higgs - musician and producer from mid Wales (UK). Saxon started out by playing about with various instruments when he was a teenager, playing in bands and organizing jam-sessions in the depths of the wild welsh countryside.
On the verge of leaving secondary school, Saxon and a few of his friends became interested in electronic music. This was when dubstep had just hit the underground music scenes of the UK, and still had it’s unique non-commercial sound. Producers such as 2562 had a large impact on Saxon’s ears.
In 2008 at the age of 17 Saxon began self teaching himself how to use various pieces of music production software. He began playing a few of his tracks out at club nights which he represented, and began receiving some encouraging feedback.
After going to a few psytrance festivals in 2009-2010 Saxon’s musical perception was turned sideways forever. He changed course, and began working on the project "Brujo’s Bowl". The Brujo’s work and live sets have developed from the typical psychedelic sound which founded the project.
Since starting his new project, "Beatroots" Saxon's focus is to bring a more intelligent and minimal bass music vibe in deep progressive to the audience' ears. Concentrating on tones more subtle to the ear, intricate rhythms which transform with the expanding crescendos and chord meanderings which carry the ever so 'addictive' loops forward, onward and upward.
The change in the quality of his work is a clear representation of how his ethos in life, his relationship to the earth. And the simplicity in just existing, living and breathing; are all parallel with the way he explores in synthesis and sound design. Labels:Triple Drop productions (label manager), Shanti Planti, Merkaba Music, Zenon records et al.
Arkona Creation proudly presents, Brujo's Bowl's debut EP, 'Healing with sound'.
The Brujo introduces the new developing genre of psystep, which seems to be provoking fresh roots gripping with in the psychedelic scene.
The four tracks of this release do more than just put a wonk on the listeners dancing feet, like most dubstep.
They suggest a more ambient and interesting flow, revealing a warm and zingy character to send waves through the senses.
With intricately designed sound effects and noises like these. This EP deserves a cushty space on any psy lovers media player. Artwork by Saxon Higgs

The Brujo takes us through a mind altering shift of the deep tribal beats of zenonesque. Enlightening us with the possibilities of genre fusion. Whilst we know that he is keen on the cross breeding of zenon progressive with psystep... He takes a new turn and displays a hidden approval of psybreaks. Churning up the vibes with a heavy kick and snare, but keeping to the organic progressive origins. The debut album of Brujo's bowl encourages change in not just the music. It's a provocative thought bath, suggesting images of change in the world. Front cover art by Shining edge and Brujo media.

Punchy kicks and pounding snare drums. These four unique psybreaks tracks should keep a dance floor on it's toes. The Brujo has kept his element of the Zenon style. But reveals the party essence of endurance which is loved so much by many. Enjoy dashes of techfunk whilst the broken beats crack on!! Mastered by Colin Bennun @ the Stooodio.
After a long period of exploration with his new project, Beatroots, Saxon Higgs has dived in at the deep end of the Zenon sound crafting once again. The focus he now pushes for is bound on a bass music adventure. Relishing in his newly found admiration for tone, character and sub. Ladies and mental men. Brujo's Bowl is back from his cliff edge with a brand new brew to share with you. With an album title inspired by the almighty, dub techno legend, 'Rhythm & Sound'. We hope the deep bass, chord meandering and rhythm construction will encourage ancestral flashbacks of purposeful celebration. These four hybridized journeys of pure skankness are sure to bring a pleasant smile to many who like to boogie. Artwork by Saxon Higgs.

Luminus is stoked to welcome Saxon Higgs aka Brujo's Bowl to the label with this new 4-track EP "The Sky is Falling".
Based in Wales, Saxon is a prolific artist with a unique and tightly dialled-in sound. Between his Brujo's Bowl and Beatroots project, he has developed this signature sound liberally throughout the tempo spectrum, from atmospheric dubstep, through zenonesque trance, tripped out tech-funk, to minimalist drum & bass and beyond.
Originally inspired by some of the early non-commercialised dubstep, such as 2562, his style is characterised by dub-infused chord-play, deep, earthy bass timbres, precision percussive rhythms and sublime melodies. With Brujo's Bowl, he has brought this minimalist bass music aesthetic to the trance world, mainly via his own label Triple Drop Productions, but also through Zenon Records, Glitchy Tonic and more.
Here he presents four hypnotic journeys for the dancefloor, clocking in around 135bpm. "Fooled by Fools" and "Forge" roll out on a tech-funk tip, with infectious grooves and intricate polyrhythmic breakdowns, while "Regardless" and "The Sky is Falling" take a more progressive trance flavour, laden with expressive chord-play, organic textures and deep techy bass work.

In the world of pristine digital sound there exists a certain skill in being able to achieve an analogue feel. Brujo's Bowl (AKA: Beatroots) is on this quest and doing a great job. His sound translates as a very spacious yet full sound, with equal parts cleanliness and gritty texture.
This EP realises a tasteful fusion of UK style breaks, techfunk, and deep progressive trance; all coiled amongst emotional, thought provoking bass music break downs, add to the mix a meticulous plethora of sound design and sprinkle it with minimal yet precise melodic content and you are Hybridized.

Beatroots is the project of deep minimal and intelligent bass music by Saxon Higgs. Saxon's new direction ventures to a place where the 'Freqs Of The Deep' dwell. In comparison to his alternative alias, 'Brujo's Bowl'. Beatroots' focus is on the bass and space side of the genre spectrums. Structuring percussion to tight, satisfying levels of engineering. Reverberation design to capture imaginary locations. And warm subby bass lines to make ones nostril hairs vibrate. These four deep, minimal and intelligent drum and bass creations. We hope will take you through many styles and reveal to you an astounding tale of clarity and emotion. Artwork by Alice Hazel Thomas.

'Till Depth Do Us Part' is the debut album from Saxon Higgs's alternative project, Beatroots. As we prise open the newly formed crack in the shell, we can catch a glimpse of Saxon's sound evolving and taking shape. Here we have some deep, intelligent and minimal bass music electronica. Beatroot's debut album forms a very unique structure in minimal drum and bass, dub techno and eclectic neuro sound design. . The concept that 'less is more' is clearly demonstrated in these six experimental pieces. And we are sure that the moods of these works will serve their purpose for many who appreciate a good dose of the more minimal qualities in life. Happy listening.

Beatroots brings together some intriguing new steppa rhythms. A full length feature of some of his deep dubstep, garage and bass music. The meandering poly-rhythmic pad and chord progression, moves seamlessly in between the intelligent percussion. They cling to the deep rumbling bass tones which hold up the subtle, yet intricate structure of the Beaten Root. The rigorous selection process which Saxon undertook to finally compiling this album, has brought plenty of pleasure and bass aches to his ears. Though now, he is even more honored to be so privileged, as to release the 'Foundations' EP on the exciting new collective label, Shanti Planti. Mastering by Brujo Media.

Beatroots brings us some more intoxicatingly deep and moody grooves in the minimal DnB department. Saxon's venture to achieve the crunky character of the analogue's warm sound by digital means continues. Emersed means, to rise above the surface of the water. A word used most commonly in botany. The rippling of water can be synced in many polyrhythmic patterns when one simply gazes upon them. These four tracks represent this idea through chord tonality and the motion in perpetual and addictive rhythm construction. Artwork by Saxon Higgs.

The first instalment of the TDP offshoot label, Gold Seal. We celebrate the start of the new alternative hiphop and triphop collective with Beatroot's infusion of deep intelligent dub and hiphop music. Saxon has hooked up with an old friend to deliver some more boundary stepping beats and progressive chord construction. MC and conscious lyricist, Hobaps from the highly appraised alternative hiphop duo, Major Triadz, and the masterful acoustic band, The Inexplicables. Has spent a few sessions at the edge of a spit of sand, at the mouth of the Aberdovey estuary in the west coast of Wales in Ynyslas. This short EP is the result of those few hours of recording. Hobaps's lyrics combined with the productions of Beatroots is an intriguing flavour, but one with familiarity and one that doesn't stray too giddy from the path of intention. The lyrics are an ingenious poem, describing to us the bits we look forward to in life, and the overseeing oppressive nature of the unfortunate state of minds of those who contribute to our hierarchy. The message is a familiar one. However, it's deliverance is spot on in terms of it's accessibility and tone. Deep intricate triphop beats, with conscious and inescapably truthful lyrics. All tracks written and produced by Saxon Higgs.

The prolific bass explorer known as, Beatroots. Returns to Shanti Planti with his seventh release, Mood Movement. This subversive & charismatic young fellow from Mid Wales (UK) is also the mastermind behind, Brujo's Bowl. A project which has provided the progressive trance community with an eclectic bass & techfunk hybrid form of Zenonesque prog. His two projects are of a similar sound, and although they're not of the same bpms or style. They're both bound to a course with the same intention.
In this release, Saxon shows to us a tool which he was unsure to show at first. But decided that the message sung deemed it worthy. Track three, 'Solid Soul'. A minimal drum and bass feature with a twist of conscious lyricism, technical sound design and tactile textured bass lines, betrays yet another glimpse in to the extensive tastes that Saxon is inspired by.
The five other tracks take on the form of Bass Music & Deep Dubstep. Each with it's own vibe and hypnotic, perpetual crescendo. 'Mood Movement' and 'Rune Stone' bring on a techy dub and chord marauder high. Loaded with perpetual grooves and deepness that'll make those closed eye lids flicker along double time to that tappin' toe. 'The Lesson' and the remix of Circular's 'Constructive'. Recuperates the mind, body and soul by representing the importance of ritual and ceremony. Emotional and evocative, passionate and true. With bass lines to rattle the lungs within their ribcage. Last, but certainly not least, 'Sailor'. An experimental piece, that drives forward upon a half time Psytrance beat. Technical squelches and sound design accompanied by a few addictive licks from Saxon's accordion. Hence the name, 'Sailor'. In the near future, there is to be an assortment of 'Sailor' remixes due for release on Saxon's label, Triple Drop Productions. Keep an ear out and a toe to the ground, as I'm sure the rumble of their approach shouldn't be hard to miss. Original mix of 'Constructive' (Track 6) by Demian Lara, remix structure and composition by Saxon Higgs.

Providing pressure is a collection of Saxon's further exploration through the deepest levels of sub frequencies, energetic polyrhythm constructions and intelligent sound design. Each track presents it's own eager energy. Providing pressure (as the title suggests) and smooth, deluxe vibes. Turning zestful melodies to sink seamlessly into times of passion and melancholy between the steady spill of intriguing jazzy rhythms and addictive motion pusher beats that ride upon expanding basslines. . . This hearty array of steppin' goodness features a remix of 'Knightly', by The Inexplicables. Taking the original beauty of the Bristol based acoustic band and metamorphosing it's essence in to a tasty bass music approach. . . The album artwork depicts the feeling and emotion that Saxon experienced when plucking 2016's harvest of beetroots from the earth with his son. An experience that has manifested a sense of 'pressure' in him, to learn more about growing food in the most organic of ways. And to pass on the knowledge to the youth. He extends an invitation to ponder this feeling further, and hopes that the revolving bass driven sounds hosted in this release musters the positivity in your day. . . When it's needed that is. . . Wishing you a pleasant groove to these fond moods and motions. Track 07. Knightly - Original recordings written and composed by The Inexplicables for the album, Proper Ganda. . .

'Beatroots’ is the project of deep minimal and intelligent bass music by Saxon Higgs. Saxon ventures onward, filling the void with his perpetual motions and throbbing bass timbre. In comparison to his alternative alias, 'Brujo's Bowl'. Beatroots' focus is to let loose the explorer within. Broadening the subs and putting the essence of space & bass through the thick and comfortable inspirations that have been absorbed by ear, year by year. Beatroots' intention forms a unique characteristic in Bass music and the minimal styles of dub and drum and bass. The grooves and the intelligent, yet quirky sound which Saxon has embarked upon shall strike a chord in the tastes of many listeners. And without straying too far from the taproot, these vibes and rhythms shall carry on the forage; to vibrate through the matter and unearth a distinctive polyrhythmic quality in music.
Mastering audio is a great passion of mine. And my knowledge of the subject keeps forever expanding. Looking back is hard when skills become more finely tuned, accuracy matures and hones in to a more solid state of knowing. I suppose knowing what to do and what not to do develops over a life time really. I know that I've been learning this skill for six years. And now that I've come to now and I listen back through time and consider the decisions I've made once again. The inner perfectionist gets the better of me and simply can't help himself from perfecting the past with what is known now. . .
A collection of past material, remastered and shared with you in 24bit WAV quality for the first time.
