Review: Bristol-based Woz has a growing reputation in the bass music scene. Following a recent guest appearance on Mistajam's 1Xtra show, he's now ready to release some more original music (much of his back catalogue comprises remixes). Zylo sets out his stall, pitching him as a producer whose party instincts regularly take priority. There's much energetic dancefloor fare on offer, from the booming basslines, retro bleeps and scratchy breaks of "Fustraightin", to the woozy UK Funky flex of "Reach" and the stabbing bounce of the darting title track. Despite the balls-out nature of his style, there's enough depth to suggest there's more to come in future.

Review: Wonky, mashed-up progressive sounds from Montreal's Dooze Jackers, with their latest EP on Top Billin. Hot on the heels of collaborations with Le Petit Belge, and releases on Ro10 Musik, Simma and Rogue Industries. Here they drop 3 ultra unique tracks that will rock it in electro, fidget, and prog sets. Squelching synth lines, funky beats, and twisted vocal samples run throughout 'Zoo', "Euh", and 'Kissing'. Our pick of the pack is the Kia Kaio cut of 'Zoo'. If you want something outside the box to throw in the mix, look no further.

Review: Already much-fancied and feted by those in the know, Brighton producer Guy Andrews drops this debut EP for Discobelle and it's a feast of slow acid-meets-UKF treats. Title tune "Your Notion" is a confident opener, mixing slowly shifting acid gurgles with precise and sharp UKF/future-garage drums, while "Klikkr" breaks out with the 808 hats and adds some tribal percussion that nestles perfectly up against rounded bass hits. "Unita" notches up the BPMs slightly and feeds warped pianos through a phalanx of reverbs and delays over a driving bassline, while closing tune "Exit" plays with Balearic textures whilst all the while keeping a distinctly vital, funky crunch to the beats.

Review: Rather like the blob in the eponymous 1950s b-movie, the Slime keeps oozing! With each new release seeping into further into every corner of dance music's cities and towns (ok, ok, they're simply getting more popular, right?) Physik's latest is a doomy two-track belter: "Younger Days" certainly doesn't evokes memories of a happier youth with its haunting atmospherics and 2 step beats. "Torn Apart" is similar although trippier, with slo-mo junglist rhythms and mournful piano and sax motifs.

Review: Big, filthy and raw sounds here on the Bass Machine label, primed for chunky sound systems - but then what else would you expect!? Lifting the accapella from a 1987 Chicago house classic (Ralph Roasario's "You Used To Hold Me"), Multi Dubz lay down a beefy 4/4 kick augmented by some cavernous bass echoes and slashing hats. Do check the Hollow mix too for an altogether more stripped back, linear take. In a word, epic.

Review: The title of Drew 'FaltyDL' Lustman's sophomore album could easily be a cheeky swipe at genre-obsessed reviewers; it's true that many have found it hard to categorize his far-sighted take on electronic music. While firmly rooted in dubstep and electronica, Lustman's music has always taken in a dizzying array of musical influences. Add to this a skip-load worth of great ideas and a distinctive production sound that marks out dance music's greats, and it's easy to see why Lustman's music has got critics in a spin. On You Stand Uncertain, he's stepped up his game. If anything, he's cast his net even wider, throwing two-step garage, UK funky, jazz, ambient, slow house, old fashioned rave and ARP 101-ish synth jams into his musical melting pot. It still sounds like a FaltyDL record (those weird slowed-down vocal samples, quaint musical touches and sneaky cut-ups are still present), but it feels like he's moved from standard definition into glorious, crystal clear HD. Aside from the usual array of brilliant instrumentals - check the floor-friendly future rave anthem "Lucky Luciano", two-step rinse-out "Tell Them Stories", 808 State-sampling "Open Space" or picturesque slow house bliss of "Tell Them Stories" - Lustman has included his first full vocal outings. These are invariably excellent, with the opening and closing tracks - "Gospel of Opal", featuring Anelka, and "Waiting Patiently", featuring Lily McKenzie - perfectly demonstrating his ability to write next-level, emotion-rich electronic music. From start to finish, You Stand Uncertain is a delight to listen to.

Review: Ten Thousand Yen do it right again with the future flex of rising producer XXXY. "You Always Started" will bear obvious comparisons to early Joy Orbsion - before he went all house - but that's no bad thing as it's drenched in a soulful emotion that builds quite delightfully towards the hair raising crescendo. The guile with which XXXY teases out the vocal sample deserves a golf clap. Equally impressive is the psychedelic house thrust of "Ordinary Things", chopping up the vocal over a skipping deep bump, with a swathe of burning tripped out melodies the backdrop to purple synth flourishes and cheeky whoo samples. There's a simplicity to the production but it's overwhelmed by the thickness of sonic emotion XXXY achieves.

Review: The story behind this release is a smile-inducing one; Parisian producer French Fries rushed the decks during a Claude Von Stroke set in Paris. "They were playing a new sound, some nasty bits sitting somewhere between juke and bass music and I knew we had to get this vibe on Dirtybird no matter what," recalls the American. And here it is, with "Yo Vogue" arriving at a time when interest in the resurgent NY ballroom/voguing scene is at a high. The pitched-down vocal intoning the words "I wanna see you vogue b*tch" is backed by splashing, reverbed hats, frankly mental rave stabs and a killer bass line. CVS turns in his own remix, a heads-down affair the chops the vocal with effortless ease, while the Leroy Peppers version goes deep on the atmospherics and plunges deep into the murkiest depths of sub bass.
