Baltimore is no stranger to electronic dance music. We’ve got bmore club, Starscape, Cex, Dan Deacon, etc. So what makes the launch of More or Less–a new Baltimore techno label, and outgrowth of the bmore-electro message forum–so special? Because the founding members “are proud to
bring Baltimore back to the grown folks table of electronic music.”
I couldn’t have put it better myself.
The bmore-electro forum is an invaluable resource for the Baltimore area EDM fan. Compared to DC’s Buzz Life forum, bmore-electro exudes decent taste in EDM, mainly Detroit techno and acid house. And to paraphrase what was said about The Clash, techno and house are the only EDM genres that matter.
Founding MOL members, Craig Sopo and lovehate, hail from the Midwest, and bare the influences of Detroit and Chicago. In a town ruled by EDM with crude sexual raps (bmore club), and neon naivety (Deacon and crew), the mature and established sounds of Chicago and Detroit are a welcome respite.
“When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child, listen to drum and bass as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things and listened to Plastikman instead.”

bmore-electro/MoL is also responsible for regular dj nights at The Depot. Be sure to check out Craig Sopo’s Below the Line EP here.
Join the grownups this Friday (6/13) for the More or Less launch party/ label show case upstairs at Flip’s at Clipper Mill, 1601 Union Ave. One block away from the Woodberry Light Rail Station.
