Review: It's not every day we come across underground bass artists named after an actress in a 1980s soap, Dynasty, but it takes all sorts as they say. Musically this is seriously next level stuff: "I Can't Hide" is twisted and contorted tribal house with half time breaks and a killer cowbell. "No Way Back" is similarly bonkers but drowns everything is neon synths. Remixers include The Druid Cloak (sounds like a Brazilian carnival stumbling into a rave), Kresy (slow, emotional house) and Rohan (even deeper still; adding melancholic keyboards and cut up vocals for what's possibly the stand-out track).

Review: If you're going to release an extended EP of remixes, at least make them varied. That's the approach Moveltraxx have wisely taken with this collection of reworks of tracks from Ezekiel's 2012 digi-only EP "Life Begins At Night". There's certainly plenty of curveballs, from the booming, cut-up dubstep exploits of Eloq's mix of "Drop Ur Ass" and Branko's pad-laden slow jam revision of "Short Shorts", to the synth-boogie-goes-B'more tweak of "Irreversible" from Pacheko. Then there's XS's odd fusion of acid and ket-addled drugginess on his quirky take on "Drop Ur Ass", and a borderline camp disco/UK funky tweak of the same track by Big Dope P. Something for everyone, then.

Review: Midlander James Vine, aka Enigma Dubz, deals in tough, straight up, party-rockin' beats. Now he's back following a recent split EP with Sub Antix with his own solo release and it's a banger. "Fresh" features filthy post dubstep chugging bass and a messy 2-step swing. ""What Must I Do" is all heavy wobble craziness and an infectious hands-in-the-air female vocals. Finally things end on a head-nodding, sinister vibe with the menacing electro-dub of "Without You By My Side".

Review: American house and garage legend Todd "The God" Edwards provides the first installment of "The Journey" on Black Label and what an immense musical journey it is. First up is the imposing "Odyssey" with its pulsing rhythms and hypnotic style, we are immediately plunged straight into Todd's brave new world, progressing slowly with cheery melodies, swooning R&B style vocals, we are taken on a journey within this very tune itself. The accompanying "Show The Way" is another equally compelling venture with cooing vocals, shimmying atmospherics and laidback, hissing beats. A suitably stylish single here.

Review: Continuing to bring serious crossover heat to Somethinksounds, Eliphino is pulling no punches on his latest emission for the fledgling label. "Vrybdy" rides on a chunky, swaggering stomp that's just broken enough to move beyond being straight house music, while the samples come looping in with a barrel-load of hip-hop attitude. It's a thoroughly functional belter that will slot ably in between all manner of contemporary electronics. "Don't Make Sense" meanwhile gets all raggamuffin in its disposition, busting out the soca break and some cheeky MC licks for a steaming slice of summertime rowdiness.

Review: A hero of garage, 2-step, French touch and about 40 other genres, New Jersey pioneer Todd Edwards' very-worthwhile revival continues with these three version of "Love Inside". With his trademark vocal-chops gloriously in place, the original works his ever-trusted formula of deep organ bass and tweaked stabs of vocals, while the "Sunshine" mix drastically rearranges the vocal chops and adds a greater jack to the hats and snares.

Review: Bridging the coastal divide in the States, LA's Body High imprint is offering up some fresh wares from New York's finest garage pioneer, Todd Edwards. Lead track "Shall Go" is a lean cut by Todd's standards, keeping a deeper tech house lean in his track, while "The Stranger" heads straight for classic territory in its sassy sample butchery. It's one big toothy grin of a track, much like the uplifting bounce of "Hold The Faith". Across all five tracks, Todd is on fire, turning out vibes parallel with his finest moments to date.

Review: Palms Out Sounds continue their quest to showcase the brightest unheard talent with the Mysterious EP from Copenhagen based producer ELOQ, otherwise known as August Fenger. Channelling a similar kind of technicolour ADD energy as Hudson Mohawke and Rustie, ELOQ creates the kind of soundscapes most could barely even comprehend let alone imagine. "Why Don't You" takes elements of US R&B production into its sprawling vista, combining rough analogue sounds with skittering drums, while "Starstruck" utilises a more straight up hip-hop beat and euphoric chords. "Mysterious" meanwhile fills in its slow-moving funk with rippling arpeggios and rapid snare rolls, while "Shine" offers the EP's most dancefloor focused moment, with sugar-coated vocals riding high on a rolling house beat. Remix support comes in the form of three reworkings of "Why Don't You"; Lazer Sword, whose superb remix keeps the structural hyperactivity of the track but resets it as a brooding Detroit electro classic, Lucid, whose rasping jackhammer bass takes it into dark new territory, and Norrit, whose restrained yet shimmering version fuses Detroit techno and garage rhythms.
