Launched in 2003 by Andrew Meza as a local radio show at the University of Cal State Fullerton, the popularity of Meza's project soon snowballed alongside its cultural significance into a worldwide movement.
In 2005 BTS caught the attention of visual artist, Charles Munka (aka Ques). Munka shared artwork inspired by the show and shortly after, his unique graphic approach led to a partnership between him and Meza, and the identity of BTS.
Meza is known as one of the most influential tastemakers/djs, spotlighting underground talent and championing artists such as Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke, Blu, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Georgia Anne Muldrow & J*Davey when they were still unsigned names. Between 2003-2007, guest features on BTS included a slew of up and comers, seasoned & the legendary, including acts and members of: 4Hero, The Avalanches, Four Tet, Peanut Butter Wolf, Cinematic Orchestra, DJ Mitsu, Exile, KanKick, Eric Lau, Samiyam, Rustie and Jneiro Jarel among others.
