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: We know little to nothing about Arthur D'Amour but the dude has certainly sparked our attention over the last few years. This time he makes his comeback on Jutonish and for those of you who don't know, it's one of Russia's longest standing dance labels; the Whisky-Cola mix takes a thumping house beat and mashes up with some seriously twisted party vocals for a proper peak-time belter. On the B-side, the Cognac mix is a jittery, Ibiza-inspired electro anthem - bound to get your booty shaking...

Review: As one half of the garage-loving Hot City, it makes sense for DJ Haus to be releasing Radio 1 Xtra and veteran garage and bassline producer DJ Q's All Junglist on his label Unknown To The Unknown - in fact it's almost surprising something like this hasn't been released before. Initially characterized by drum programming that is, well, "junglist", the track is interjected with a beat that is less broken, and more split in half, ripped apart with a tidal wave of woozy bassline action; combined with the tropical synth melody and hardcore referencing piano you've got a track that is classicist and very much in keeping with the label's technicolour focus. It's joined by "Will I Ever Be Free", marked out by a slightly housier touch given by its deep string melody, adding a rich contrast to the swooping low end and crunchy snares. It's a curious mix of bassline garage and Detroit moods, and one that works surprisingly well. Highly recommended!

Review: Bringing further evolution in the realm of footwork, one of the scene's heavy hitters DJ Earl drops this self-assured EP which lets a little heart and soul into the manic machinations of his chosen discipline. Opening track "I Feel It" embraces full-bodied vocals and warm melodies, while "I Need You" gets deep into a Rhodes refrain, all the while twitching away at the heightened BPMs of classic footwork. "Alive N' Well" goes as far as to reach for some chunky Detroit chords, while "Ambienttt" somewhat ironically represents the feistiest cut on the release with a more head-nagging refrain that seems more in line with classic Chicago juking.

Review: Scottish label Fortified Audio is the latest home to Atlanta producer Distal, a man who's been prolific over the last 12 months with a host of remixes and originals - most notably "Grape Donut" which appeared on Soul Jazz's huge Future Bass compilation. Here, Detroit tech rubs shoulders with tropical funky on tunes like the effervescent title track, with its wayward and off-kilter strings proving to be a real highlight, alongside the minimal funk of "Love A La Venturo". Things get taken into hyper mode though for "Africa To Mars", with astral pads and relentless rhythms marking it out as an early favourite, as well as the soft dub of "Novocaine Blonde" which recalls his previous footwerk excursion, "Coke Bottle".

Review: With a number of big releases under his belt, including an EP for Palms Out Sounds and Untold's SSSSS label no less, Dubbel Dutch finds himself on Unknown to the Unknown's own imprint for his new release. The original version of "B Leave" takes drum & bass inspired percussion and fuses it with a modern bass template, taking its R&B sample and combining it with icy synth stabs which create a sound much like a Detroit take on bass. Transatlantic Night Slugs associates NGUZUNGUZU meanwhile offer a significantly more stripped back version, adding pan pipe samples to its chopped and screwed future R&B aesthetics. Highly recommended.

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.
