Review: Italian producer Digi G'Alessio presents the Lucky Bald EP, comprised of six hard hitting bass mutations covering a whole spectrum of genres - "Mike Tyson" for example is a brooding grime influenced number, while "No Questions" and "Fi Pi Li" take a slower, dub heavy approach, but it's his (brilliantly named) juke cuts that really impress: the gruff vocal and driving arpeggio of "Juke The Ripper" are as visceral an experience as the name suggests, whilst "Juke Casella" takes a more threadbare rhythmic structure beefed up with punishing subs. "Juke Skywalker" is undoubtedly the best of the lot, marrying some mangled vocals with some twisted acid lines. Big stuff!

Review: The renewed Apollo imprint continues its fast moving release schedule with the debut release from Gacha. Fitting in with the label's cloudy, effervescent aesthetic instantly, "Remember" combines pitched down vocals, dreamy guitars and gentle bass over a half-stepping groove. "Bowl" meanwhile is more obviously aimed at the floor, with a rolling garage rhythm that seems to phase in and out around gentle chords swathed in tape delay.

Review: More UK funky business from the usually reliable L2S imprint, this time in the shape of a Juno Exclusive from Gage. The lead track itself is something of a sweet and unassuming chunk of vocal pleasantness - the sort of thing that should induce tears of joy from dancefloor casualties at three in the morning. Yet for all its melodic sweetness, it still boasts the sort of bassline that would tear apart your intestines on a hefty rig. Elsewhere, there's some deep 4/4 garage fare in the shape of "No More Lessons", a mellow dubstep roller (with a very long intro!) called "Empty Promises 2", and a woozy two-step builder by the name of "Kateside". Along with the title track, it's this latter cut that most impresses.

Review: Less than a month after his Black Screen album for Frijsfo Beats, Geiom delivers a further EP of driving, leftfield UK funky. "Glesprin" kicks things off with its swampy, malevolent bass, pushed forward with, minimal, techy percussion. "Ferrite Gaps" offers a fairly more conventional UKF style killer, with rolling snares and angular strings, albeit covered in a woozy sense of atmosphere, while "Digitithe" is characterised by its wonky, atonal 2-step rhythms and tunnelling bass.

Review: Bristol dubstep/UKF producer Gemmy makes an impressive stand on Roska's Kicks and Snares label with this fresh EP, containing the winding neon buzz of "Lakota", the tropical dub of "Badman" and the minimal house spank of the wicked "We Watch The Sun Rise". Huge American electro rocker AC Slater turns in a less subtle but very effective breaks-styled rerub of "Lakota" too.

Review: Maintaining their reputation for the most intriguing contemporary bass skulduggery on the planet, Crackling Claps introduce the fractured, seasick vibes of Genda. The second the dusty, crinkled glitches and surging fuzzy euphoria of opener "Fractal" hits you, you know this is going to take a few listens to get your head around. Sitting somewhere between Morris Cowan, Apparat and Autechre, everything about this engrosses and envelopes. From the spiralling sub-aquatic psychedelia of "Particles" to the soul-stopping synth pulsations and horn washes of "Self Similarity", this bends the mind as well breaking gravity. Make sure Genda is on your agenda...

Review: Chunky, fevered bassline-meets-speed garage from the Bass Machine label, with Generator and Dub White both making a serious impression. Generator gets hugely funky on the rap 'n' bass banger "Can't Help Myself", winding a chopped brass sample over a fat '90s bassline, while "It's Time To Get Funky" gets busy with some retro-house organs and floor-quaking low end. Dub White comes at things from a slightly more hardcore, devilish approach - throwing out of control arpeggios into the hectic beats of "Lover That You Are", while "Museum" is a true garage monster.
