Review: It's been a year since Slime's second instalment of their leading compilation Future Sound Of Garage series. Now the follow-up has finally arrived boasting 28 examples of what they to be consider music of the future. There are too many to name, but highlights include the ethereal and sensual future-step opener "Return" by Monoblue, the seductive, delicate chimes of the shimmering "Ever Feel" by Just Breathe, the sparse and raw 2-step of Pavv's "Let It Go" and even the uber commercial Ibiza-friendly anthem "Stone" by Project X is a (guilty) pleasure.

Wavvves - (4:53) 125 BPM
from $1.94
Review: It's safe to say that Kry Wolf now has a rather impressive catalogue behind him, and nothing but quality under his belt. The man behind the Sounds Of Sumo label drops his latest release for Night Bass and it seems like the perfect place for his wondrous bass cuts. "Temper" is a slow, shape-shifting beast with a rattling percussion hook that wraps perfectly around the tune's knotted swarms of swamp bass, whereas "Flashlight" unleashes a bit of four-to-the-floor beneath a sea of rave sirens and purring bass tones. "Wavvves" feels like the last piece of hardcore continuum, a break-heavy, pseudo jungle killer to tie this man's bass experimentalism in the best possible way. Hot!

Review: Second To None Music have chosen the right name for their label. These guys should not be underestimated, and their output is among the best UK bass, garage and funky that we have heard recently. This statement compilation is simply putting them on a lot of people's radars, and getting the to know that absolutely nobody at their HQ is messing around when it comes to relaxing fresh bangers for the UK's dance floors. The music is wild and diverse, ranging from pure bassline to UK funky, and there are certainly plenty of noticeable artists and known faces here, including neb-dancehall specialist Deadbeat, Mikey B, B Squared, and Hypho. If you're into the British way of doing house, then this twist up will surely satisfy.

Review: For those who don't know, Hypho is a rising talent in the bass game and his quest to reach the top level has gotten closer thanks to this latest injection of low frequencies for the 877 label. "Wartime" is the perfect lead tune, a string-led pseudo grime instrumental with a perfectly executed percussive rhythm, and "Pinch" follows a similar path thanks to its slithering beats. There is a collaboration with Squane on "Hack", a futuristic grime roller with a mean collection of beats and hollow melodies, which is followed by Majora's remix of "Wartime", a more uplifting version of the tune, and a Vital Techniques reinterpretation of "Pinch". Smoking bangers guaranteed!

Review: Dr Oscillator goes way back with his pal Dr Cryptic's Chip Butty label. Here he returns to the source with a sizzling four-track mission statement, the RS Turbo EP. The title tracks kicks things off with some lively 4 x 4 and percolating bass notes, "Haunted Bungalo Riddim" meanwhile, gets more serious, taking some seriously deep wobble bass on board. Elsewhere "Roundhouse" is some attitude-heavy dubby mayhem and "415" finishes up with lean and mean fast beats, digi bleeps and quirky melodies. Fresh sounds!

Review: Tik&Borrow's In:Flux Audio label has developed its strong reputation not least due to the duo's discerning ears. A new Get Fluxed comp always means more of their expertly curated selections. This time round there are 12 cuts that provide something for everyone on a bass tip. Highlights includes the buzzsaw breakbeats of T&B's own "Junction Box", the sinister afterhours garage of "Too Close" by Connerz and heady, dub-tech mayhem of Joedan's "High Times". Also an extra shout-out goes to the digi-dancehall roof-raiser "Get Funky" by King Hydra.

Review: Officially the funkiest man to emerge from dubstep, Swindle shows his sporting side with a precision-timed Latin EP. "Connecta" will draw you in with its samba drums, arresting your senses with honeyed vocals, firing horns and climactic build. "Copacabana" dons its budgie smugglers for a Rio-riddled jungle stepper while "Villa Mimosa" takes us back to Swindle's darker side with a beat that somehow rolls and steps with its instance percussion and mischievously off-kilter halfsteps. Finally DJ Q shuts the party down with his trademark twisted garage stamps. Gold medals all round.

Money And Drugs (Killjoy remix) - (5:17) 134 BPM
from $1.94
Review: Wise words from Dread MC, even wiser beats from Bristol's Notion & Young H. Chunky 4x4 garage with strong house tendencies thrown into the mix, "Money & Drugs" is an all-out dancefloor riot with catchy vocals, a deadly second drop and enough energy to charge a whole fleet of electric cars. For added screwface appeal jump on Killjoy's Birmingham-sounding remix where the bassline is twisted up just a few additional notches for added mischief. Blurry.

I Don't Care - (6:32) 126 BPM
from $1.94
Review: From Four40 to Project Allout, UK bass scientist Tuff Culture has shown us many sides of his artistic persona. If we want to keep things topline, this guy can make just about any form of UK dance music; he's given us dubstep, a little trap, some house, and now two new garage-leaning joints. "Take Me" is deep and pensive, but once the main hook drops it's an infectious drum affair with a growling, penetrative bassline. "I Don't Care" is a more typical garage tune because of its twisted, dusty drum pattern, but the sounds within are anything but what you'd normally expect from a 90's garage track. Wait for that switch, too.

Review: AC Slater's Los Angeles-based Night Bass label has been turning the US on its head what with all the real UK bass flavours they've been serving up. They've now made it to the fourth instalment of the mighty This Is Night Bass series, and once again it's sizzling with energy. There are eight tracks this time including the heavy stomp of Aussie Yolanda Be Cool & Wongo's "Roosevelt", Sinden's gloriously dark "God" and the deep jackin' grooves of Bijou's "Cant' See Us". Night Bass then, bringing quality to the masses.

Nightmares - (3:58) 129 BPM
from $1.94
Review: No messing around on this one: the man-machine Lorenzo lays down a severe groove and gives it the grave name it deserves. Spiked-out, siren-loaded and prone to switching, "Foot & Mouth" is the type of gully tune we all need as we come down from a hot, sticky summer. "Nightmares" follows suit with a similarly detuned feel to the bassline, all paranoid, weirded out and non-standard... The main strength that's got Chris to his premiership position in the first place.

Review: Rising Welsh DJ/producer Jay Robinson has made himself right at home with the Night Bass label, here presenting his third EP for the imprint. If ain't broke and all that. There are four turbo charged bass pounders packed on to this release, starting with the bad man bounce of opener "Fury". Next is the creepy, bleepy shuffle of "The Model", before he gets his wobble out on the skippy "Red Dot". Lastly he wraps things up with the UKG-informed "The Start", which is actually the end, but Robinson never plays by the rules.

Review: Bristol's bass supremacy is under threat from Sheffield's formidable Project Allout, who have literally gone all out by rounding up 21 heavyweight jams to prove it. With such heavy ammo who is foolish enough to try and resist? Not us, and if we really had to pick, some of our favourites would be Adam Mac's doomy, empty rainy street vibes on the haunting "Cold Side", the accelerated, pinged up, soulful 4 x 4 banger "Deep" by Deadbeat UK and the percussive dancehall infused synth bass monster, "Likkie Vibez" by Juzlo. The Allout revolution, don't fight it, feel it!

Review: These guys are a self-professed Muscovite 'musical tandem' who specialise in deep house and garage with old skool flavours. Here they've teamed up with the Night Bass crew to unveil the Weegle EP. Russians know toughness and these guys are no exception delivering three dancefloor pulverisers for our listening pleasure. The title track is peak time mayhem, with a catchy ghetto chorus married to the skippiest beats and crunchiest bass you've ever heard. Elsewhere "Next Level" is a UKF with extra punishing bottom end and lastly "High Volume" delivers the wobble with nowhere to hide.

Review: NM Recordings is a collective of bass heavyweights including the Slime crew, Maxxi and Mind Of A Dragon to name but a few. The thing all these guys have in common is a desire to push things forward, 'things' being UKG. Here on "Hot Air" Doctor Nick prescribes a heavy dosage of warm, synthetic nostalgia (think Ayia Napa, circa 2000) with oodles of smooth pads, crisp 2-step beats and watery melodies. Remix-wise Cellardore adds a more attitude-heavy bassline and evocative sound FX, Wolfe, pitches everything up for a naughty wobble-fest whilst Jepadee closes with some neatly atmospheric UKF.

As usual, the quality is never compromised, particularly on such standouts as the mercilessly pounding, RnB sampling "You Better Know" by Libra, the futuristic 2-step synth stabs of "Eyes On You" by Jello and the dry warehouse beats and buzzy bass bounce of "People Dem Dance" by Lucent & Karl Vincent.

from $1.94
Review: The man behind some of the best unofficial 4x4 UKG versions Skepta and JME have enjoyed, Skue-K continues his confident rise in the bass realm on Low Pitched. "In The Rave" takes a deeper, jacking twist from his more forthright damage with a well-placed vocal and rumbling house-style bass hook. "Inside" takes a turn for the gnarlier with a grittier bass approach but still a clear house edge to the drums. Stately, unhurried but 100% gully; these cuts are built to last.

Review: And just like that, Mr Curi jumps on the scene with his debut release for the new and fledgling 3000 Digital imprint. This is hybrid gear; "Rock The Bells" is a house tune is structure that has been taken over in its low-end by squealing pseudo dubstep bleeps and growls. There's two remixes of the tune from Mikey B and Brent Kilner, the first being an aggressive had house version and the second a power garage take on the original, followed by and finished off with "By My Side" and its alternate set of dubstep rings and waves. Lovely gear.

Review: Sheffield's Project Allout don't mess about, having developed a reputation for championing all directions in the ways of bass. Every take on that three letter word is important to this label and that's why they cram so many hot jams onto their comps. Basically they're the Ferrero Rocher am-bass-adors and they are really spoiling us with 49(!) lengerz. Highlights include AT's bleepy 8-bit hip-hop groove "Flash Bang", the epic, symphonic trap of Dubzta's "Lord Of War" and the almost disco tech grooves of "Murkers' by King Hydra. All killer, no filler!

Review: Spooky touches bass on the impressive Project Allout - we hope that you noticed the pun there - with his usual bag of tricks, this time in the form of "Bun Fire", a fast-paced breakbeat stomper coated in a healthy bit of dubstep wobble and boasting a drum & bass sensibility in the school of thought of your Dj Hazards. There a fine artillery of remixers who all twist and mangle the original up in fine style: Notion, Moony, Dubzta, and Trends all deliver the goods, the latter being particularly impressive with his grime reinterpretation. Fireee!

Review: Veteran UK producer EL-B had taken a sabbatical from garage, but has recently set about producing a 21st century take on the style. Hooking up with likeminded Birmingham label 40Forty, we now have the Attitude EP in our proverbial hands. The EP boasts four bleeding edge cuts, the first of which, "What you Mean To Me" riffs heavily on the classic 2-step sound with diva style vocals. Elsewhere, "Erase My Mind" is thumping, raw underground garage, "Down With The Programme' is a soulful, choppy, leftfield cut and "Attitude" is a upbeat party joint that samples Colonel Abrahams!

Review: Boy, it's their instalment of the This Is Night Bass series and, as always, it's a tight and severely jam-packed bag of pure bass-ridden quality. The rhythm carrying the best part of the release is one that locks into 4/4 mode, but the melodies, low frequencies and vocals contain something seriously UK about them. In fact, if you're looking for purist British house music with a garage flavour then you'v hit the right spot; it's as if these guys have tele transported back to 2000/2001, when the roots of dubstep were being laid-down from the foundations of garage and bassline. YES.

Review: Lobster Boy are back with their new knight in shining armour, the swingy and effective house artist who goes by the name of New York Transit Authority. On this particular release, NYTA is in garage mode, launching a heavy bassline groove through "4DC", the sort of banger you'd want played out on a beach party as the sun comes dusking. "Two Know" is a different kind of beast; the tune is slower, muddier and travels in a more progressive mode that will appeal to the Digweed and Sasha fans out there. Effective dancefloor delights.

Review: Jay Cunning's Sub Slayers label has now reached the fifth instalment of the increasingly respected Sub Slayers Series. He's scored a real coup here, by signing up rising 21-year old producer Toronto Is Broken to both curate the tracklist and provide an exclusive mix too. The focus this time round is firmly on garage and bass, and there are 26 bleeding edge selections to explore. Highlights include the aquatic synth pads and bottom end rumbles of Sourkrush's "Giving Me Life (Dead Belly mix)", the haunted soul-step of "Laundry Time" by Atomic Drop and the grimey dancehall of "Twinkle" by Gella.

Review: With a reputation like that of Slime's, when they present their idea of garage future, it tends to be pretty definitive. Here they've done it again with a second installment of Future Sound Of Garage 2. There are 28 new joints here, all bursting with futuristic fizz. Highlights include the robo 2-step opener "Dreams" by Cup & String, the nasty bass and speedy beats of Conducta's "Be Strong" and the warm, washing synth waves of melodic bliss-popper "Goin In" by David Eliza. The future's safe in the hands of Slime!

Review: "Blow", by Two Tons (aka Joedan and Kontent) pays homage to the Johnny Deep movie of the same name - pure as the driven snow. It's also a tune that'll shake your speaker cones, with its rattling rhythms and positively sub-maximal bottom end. Joedan ups the wobble factor on his VIP mix, whilst "Dnt Gve A Fck" is a neon-lit, late night roller. Joedan appears again, this time with his own "No Verse Two" - all sparse tropical beats and grime verses courtesy of MC Shantie. Boom!

Highlights include the linear, up-and-down hoover bass joint "Live My Life" by Deadbeat UK, Mikey B's heavy and eccentric 2-step gem "I Wonder" and Vital Techniques own deep bass workout, "News To Me".

Review: Riddim Commission's Dem Ting Dere shook things up last month, and now it's back again courtesy of a whole new string of mixes. This time round we get three whole new ways to hear it. First up, Petey Clicks goes straight for the heady floor filler award and succeeds with a thumping nasty bassline, skippy garage beats and uniquely London-style MCing. Next Nightwave steps up with some pretty grimey 8-bit trap chaos and finally the mighty Spooky appears to deliver some brain-melting, party-driven dancehall vibes.

Review: This new EP from Birmingham's bass bastion Bassboy sees him leap artistically from his early days of RnB cut-ups. He's been pushing his sound more towards an off-kilter garage sound of late, though here things begin brightly with "Rainbows" - an infectious fusion of fizzy garage-pop and brutal bottom end. However elsewhere the perky "Colours" benefits from some heavy tribal thump and "Once Upon A Time" is an orgy of nasty 4x4 and 90s vocal snippets and pads aplenty. DJ Direct also appears to add some serious muscle to the title track too.

Such has been the demand for Mosca's debut on the Numbers imprint, the London based producer cheekily took to touting advance DJ copies of Do Me Wrong via Facebook. Both tracks here are fully poised for the floor, priming a throwback Bassline / UK G swing dipped in a nowness from Mosca that's been evident on drops for Night Slugs and Fat City. Unusually, it's the B Side that's garnered the most attention, which is odd as "Done Me Wrong" is excellent, reigning in vintage female hollerations over clipping rhythms, swamping basslines and parping synths that pay homage to the classic "RIP Groove". Flipside, the more celebrated "Bax" is a dual assault on your senses, murky sub bass jabbing at your ribs, whilst the sweet cooing vocals whisper sweet nothings in your ears. All this is underpinned by a skipping mid 90s flex heavy on the neon stabs that has warehouse jam written all over it.

Review: Yes folks, it's that time again, when Roska reviews his label's latest releases and selects the key cuts from each for the Allstars series. This is the fifth instalment and we're now fully emerged in this man's vision of bass music. The selections here are the totally carnival, laser fuelled bounce-athon "Baileys", the percussive mayhem of Afro roof-raiser Pasa by "DJ Naughty" and the electro/tech moodiness of "Umboh" by MA1. Without a doubt one of the most essential labels around.

Review: Having recently celebrated their tenth release, Sheffield's Chip Butty have now rounded up the cream of their roster for Chip Shop Vol 1. There are nine bangers featured here, all promising 'hard 4x4 beats mashed with twisted basslines'. They're not wrong either: highlights include label stalwart Dr Cryptic's pounding garage-step sing-a-long "Dirty Dot", the doomily orchestrated wobbler "Marching Powder" by Sekt 87 and the menacing speed garage of "Rude" by Little Mesters.

Review: London's bass giant Roska likes to keep thing fresh. That's why he is constantly releasing short, sharp sizzlers - to keep his latest sounds on dancefloors. His latest missive is BFF, which is another top notch joint. Kicking off with an atmosphere-building synthscape the tune soon gives away to his fierce combination of stark tropical drum patterns and nagging melodies. Another sure-fire winner.

Review: U Wot Blud are always ahead of the game and although many have moved on since last year's instalment of the Rising Stars series, they've not stayed still either. This third volume shows us a whole new side to the UWB sound, which if not exactly 'sensitive', is certainly showing a kind of newfound maturity. The dancefloor is still their main priority of course, and the two 4/4 techy electro-house bangers by Aliii ("Artifice", "Blackmail") totally capture that spirit. Elsewhere highlights include scattershot tropicalia and bouncy bass of "You Went" by TK Vicious and the pounding future-jack-fest of "Redshift" by Lycid.

Review: Here U Wot Blud have reached out all the way to Austria, home of rising star Robsi Mantoura. Having spent some time in the UK absorbing the bassy sounds of Julio Bashmore and his ilk, he now gives us EPs like Spread Love. "You & I" is warm, skippy house with extra sprinkles of garage and wobble for good measure. Pelikann toughens it up with starker snare rolls and chants whilst Melinki goes for orchestral DnB and Pavv opts for straight up wobble. Finally the original "Love" is more soulful with nods to 90s garage and even some sax!

Review: Birmingham badness here with the city's pre-eminent bass institution, Fourty40, bringing serious fiyah on the "Get Mad" EP from Metro Club. Heavy heavy club vibes abound on this one with Serocee delivering some fierce MC flow to this bouncy urban house explosion. Remix-wise Jamie George delivers a cool dancehall-inflicted roller, Jay Robinson gets well aggy on his harder hoover bass jam and South Royston get deep into an old skool acid house zone. Lastly DJ Cable explores the murky quagmire between dubstep and trap to evocative effect!
