Review: Dropped on DVA's XLR8R mix from the end of last year, Dark Sky's "High Rise" finally gets a release on Blunted Robots and it may well be their best release to date. Tightly crafted minimal beats and glacial pads rule the roost on "High Rise", while a bassline constructed from percussion hits maintains the energy on this UKF future-classic. "Armour" is on the flip with a more fleshed-out and mean vibe running throughout - check out those hyped, rattlesnake snares for example - and the ocean deep chords on the breakdowns. Heavy stuff.

Review: Having cut his teeth on the south coast urban scene, supporting the likes of Luck & Neat, Example and So Solid Crew, as well as working with Twice As Nice and Fuzzy Logic, it's fair to say that Davi C has got the chops. This new release clearly riffs on his 2step past but brings in plenty of future bass and in the case of "Are You Ready?" some good old tropical riddims.

Review: Body-slamming musical mischief here from Bournemouth badman Davi C. The title track fist bumps its way through the speaker with a steppy dancehall riddim, chilling pads and a topline that's not dissimilar to DJ Mujava's "Township Funk". "Never Gonna Stop 2012" is more your two-step flavour but with a bullet-proof, robust sheen. With a bassline that nods heavily to the early proto-dubstep records 10 years back (think Sticky, think Wookie) this bangs hard.

Review: London via North Devon imprint Shifting Peaks are keeping the party pressure on with this bumper-packed EP. It's a label debut from duo De$ignated (Nima Bazrcar and Rory Bowyer) who split their time between London and Hampshire. Having garnered some major hype from a string of remixes, they've managed to secure Kyiki from Crystal Fighters for this, this own single. "Valentine" mixes fuzzy urban funk with old skool 2-step and half time breaks. "Russian Roulette" however is a much harder post-dubstep gurning banger. Best of the remixes is Kaveh's thumping acidic afterhours workout.

Review: Excellent release here from Deadboy on Glaswegian imprint Numbers, who returns to the imprint after dropping their first ever 12" in early 2010. The Brighton based producer serves up the epic "Wish U Were Here", which locks into a 4/4 pulse with euphoric Virgo-style synths and a deftly tweaked vocal snippet - solid end of night tackle right here! Up next you'll find "Here 4 U" and "Ain't Gonna Lie", with the former's rolling congas and snare patterns complemented by the latter's syrupy vocals, pinball percussion and straight up garage rhythms. Serious heat once again from the Numbers crew.

Review: Deam steps in on Concrete Cut with a tidy six-tracker that should get heads a-nodding and hips shaking. Blending a Nightslugs meets Hud Mo style sound in "Joint", Deam is all about the fluro synthlines and snaking rhyhms and first. "Mayhem" continues this narrative path on a more melancholic tone, whilst "Saw I" blends low bass with distorted vocal snippet and squelchy SFX and "Pinch" ups the high end a bit with squeaky synths and pattering breaks. Penultimate track "Riot" shakes things up with a syncopated drum patter and mashed up vocal before the dreamy distortions of "Square Love" finish things off.

Review: An absolute stone-cold classic of early '80s electro, a staple in Diplo's arsenal today - not to mention Duke Dumont's ace rerub from a few years back - Debbie Deb's "When I Hear Music" gets a well-deserved re-release, backed by some lesser known gems that will get DJs salivating. "Lookout Weekend" is essentially a Part 2, while the hectic "There's A Party Going On" is another slept-on gem of the era.

Review: British producer Debian Blak comes through with a tantalising brace of smart tunes on this debut EP for the First Word label. "TISW" is on a stark and seedy Burial tip, while "Something Different Something Smaller" is a deliciously wonky and smoky delight that takes from hip-hop and boogie yet sounds totally unique. James Blake fans will certainly enjoy "Leave Me Alone" - indeed anyone who enjoys a more soulful approach to dubstep should make a beeline for this EP.

Review: Decibel and Flowdan tore things up with "Skanks" earlier this month, and now they're back with a tasty remix package spanning all types of bass styles. Network delivers a deep and dark bassline house version, pitching Flowdan's vocals down into the murky ether, while I Killed Kenny builds on the original's frenetic style with a rave-infused UK funky bomb, something mirrored on DJ Cable's similarly furious remix. Lol Gurlz meanwhile offer a moody and atmospheric take filled with syncopated, head-nodding drums, while Toni Moretti's remix offers much the same but with trippy hi-resolution percussive tones. Amazing stuff!

Review: Space soul superstar Deft defies the assumption that all Croydon boys are gnarly dubstep champions with this startling exercise in genre defying. "Let's Hook Up" is a warped and weirded out love song with spooky processed vocals and a well textured, off-beat groove. "Lucid/Overline" is a dreamy, sludgy 4/4 slug-out while "Loqux & Past" rides roughshod on some very trippy drum works. Going through the motions? Then cheer yourself up and go through "The Motions".
