Review: Gary Spence aka T-Polar is a prolific producer from Belfast. Here he demonstrates his considerable production skills over four future bass corkers. "Feetwork" is not as fast as the genre it's name references, instead its trippy, leftfield 2 step of the highest order. "Twinkle Toes" is quirky garage, riddle with chopped up RnB vocals and fun vibes, conversely "Little Big Man" is dark, moody and warped. The Unknown remix of the title track is even darker, evoking the serial killer disco vibes of recent Burial material.

Review: Audibly on more of a funky tip than his deeper excursion for Local Action late last year, this EP on Enchufada sees T Williams using rawer sounds than some of his more stripped back productions. The title track for example positively fizzles with energy thanks to its sawtooth bass playing off against Terri Walker's sweet vocal hook. "Synthia", meanwhile, is infused with jungle breakbeats and manic stabs. "Malfunction" is driven forward with a wily bassline and UKG synth strings, while "30 Degree" plays with a heavy kwaito vibe. The EP ends on something of a curveball, but "Zoop" still impresses hugely thanks to its dub siren lead.

Review: T.Williams's first release for Local Action finally gets a digital release! The minimal jack flows freely on the thick "Afric", while the Deep Teknologi boss crafts some banging snares and Hammond organ stabs on the rising UKF blast of "Anthem" and jams on an extended house groove (complete with sinister dubby touches) on "Flooring". If you missed this on vinyl, don't sleep now.

Review: This release marks the first release by another artist on Odiggity's own Swedish imprint, Chaya. It's short and sweet, with fellow Swede Sebastian Tafuri offering up the sole track, the deep and bleepy future garage affair that is "Cadet". The aforementioned label boss steps in too, delivering a much perkier, piano-house inspired version that features more snare rolls than a marching band on parade.

Review: Like its names suggests, Herve's label is all about Cheap Thrills, and you can't get cheaper and more thrilling than a quick, after dark one-off. Yep, Taiki & Nulight are back with this follow up to their recent Coming Up EP, and "Late Nights" is a real DJ tool for those sleazy late night sessions - all clattering percussion and cowbells married to a sleazy dub-wobble bassline that just won't get out of your head, not even in the morning after!

Review: The success of Taiki & Nulight's recent low-key release Late Nights has now seen it expand into a full-blown EP. Again released by Herve's Cheap Thrills, the title track is a dubby, wobbly 4x4 garage roller. "Take Me Up" is a straight up, hands in the air party anthem, "Footwerk" is dark, deep and very late night bassline houser , but it's all about "Offkey" for sheer next level sounds.

Review: Sassier than a slap from a glam queen crunked up on sarsaparilla, "Hands" is both cuttingly sharp and stupendously silky. Futuristic garage with echoes of neo soul and soft whispers of classic Chicago house, each of the three numbers on offer reverberate with grooves strong enough to seep into tomorrow. "Hands" shimmies with spine-tingling R&B chords before dropping into a clanging late night bassline frenzy, "I'm Gonna Lose My Baby" is both tribal and twinkling with its robust 4/4 and laser-loving toplines while "And So We Find Ourselves" could sit happily both on daytime radio and on the deeper floors. A rare breed.

Review: Tee Circus returns to Sounds Of Sumo with an even ruder pair of tracks than those on his previous EP on the label; "MBH" is a tough piece of with a steely bassline and clipped 808 drums, while "The Wanderer" ups the squelch factor on the bassline to deliver a demented piece of UK funky with tweaked out vocals and incessant snare rushes. The release is completed with a pair of tasty remixes; Kry Wolf offers a tough tech-bass roller with fat bass stabs, tumbling percussion and cosmic synths, while Piri Piri turns in a sparse juke-inspired refix of "The Wanderer", whose crazed 808 cowbell and abstract sounds sound like Addison Groove on acid - worth the price of admission alone.

Review: This guy has been involved in the UK underground scene since his first release (aged 17!) and just loves the very early days of pirate radio and UK garage. Lately he's back on top form with new inspiration and a new underground house sound and this tune proves it. "Playground Swing" is an immense slice of tough-but-fair UKF: all fly-by-the -seat-of-your pants beats, chopped up vocals and of course fat, doomy bass. Boom!
