Review: Originally known as one half of UKG/UK funky/house fusionists Cause & Effect, Chris Lorenzo has decided to venture out on his own for debut album, Destroy The Image. The Birmingham-based producer is known for his love of collaborating and over the 14 tracks here we encounter hook ups with Alex Mills, DJ Zinc and Sam Nicolosi. Highlights include the creeped-out techno mantra of "Come Down", the radio-friendly EDM anthem, "We Are" and the dirty tropical baile attack, "Bad Bitch".

from $1.88
Review: TMSV specialises in all things bass-related, an artist who is capable of producing pretty much any sort of dance music that travels at the speed of sound and drags frequencies lower than the underground itself. The Artikal casual lands on Tumble Audio with this monster of an EP, filed with dubwise dread throughout, and that manages to wield an impressive amount of jungle out of its more dubstep-centric beats; "Expensive Suit" is a good example of that, but even "Nuh Tek Diss" has enough break-ridden charm to please all sorts of corner-dwelling head-nodders. A bodacious selection of remixes from the likes of Archive, Murder He Wrote and Hypho add to the nastiness, and make this one hell of an EP.

Review: The mighty Southpoint label is in pretty deep with this leviathan of a compilation, a mammoth-sized dubstep showdown spanning twelve heavy, sweltering slices of low frequency. They got their whole crew in line with this one, from the sleek, speed garage of Aerotonin, to Drax's pseudo grime, KXVU's alien-like take on dubstep, Pavv's murk-bass house beats, through to the hybrid beats and breaks of Scullious' experimental shade of dubstep. KILLAH.

Review: Hailing from Edinburgh, Blackboxxx got his first break with the mighty Slime label. Since his debut, Sayonara, he's progressed and honed his sound, resulting in this smart new offering, Adonis, on NM Recordings. The title track is a warm slice of future 2-step, complete with dreamy atmospherics, distant RnB vocals and some deep sub warbles. "Link Up" goes even further into luxurious MJ Cole-style vibes for a truly slick ride. Moony also remixes the former into some filthy hardcore nastiness, with bouncy breaks mayhem by Cellardore and smooth late night vibes Courtesy of Doctor Nick.

from $1.88
Review: In:Flux Audio now have rough n' ready wide boy Thorpey on their books. The Powah EP starts as it means to go on with the snarling, metallic riffs of "Outta My Way" which combines pitched up RnB vocals with a pounding electronic onslaught (turned into deep and sinuous tropical grooves in Pharoah K's rework). The title track meanwhile is a particularly rabid example of harsh 4 x 4 mayhem...with cowbells on top! Label dons Tik & Borrow deliver a frenetic scattershot DnB version and Sample Junkie turns in a hyper accelerated jump up version that'll put hairs on yer chest.

Review: What Dr Oetker is to frozen pizzas, Dr Oscillator is to naughty potty-mouthed bassline music: tasty. Making his debut at Michelin starred bass restaurant Project Allout, chef Oscillator has cooked his most scrumptious bangers... "The Taxman" skanks with iced-out low end menace, "Hostile" hits with more drama than a year of Eastenders while "Chicken & Gravy" closes on a scrum-diddly-umptious two-step flex where subs flutter and keys ripple with a jazzy sexiness. Yum.

Wanna Be - (6:47) 125 BPM
from $1.88
Review: Midlands bass hero Tuff Culture likes to challenge the expectations of what the genre should sound like, and for his latest missive he's looked to 1980s cop show Miami vice for inspiration. However he's stayed with a very UK sound for the EP. The title track marries Ocean Drive synth pads and bleepy melodies with a bit of rough edged bass. "Need Me" is messy UKG with punchy snares and cut-up loops and "Wanna Be' ends with a hard and heavy 4 x 4 slammer. Moony also appears to give the title track a deliciously deep 2-step makeover too.

Review: UKG power grooves: having elevated from fire edits on Soundcloud to a pro releases in recent years, Shaun Dean continues to flex his slick sonic skills on Dr Cryptic's ever-tasty Chip Butty. "Complete" struts with a certain amount of garage sass while remaining underpinned by a nuclear bass riff, "Top 5" is a much leaner affair with its strutting 4/4s and moaning, almost weeping bass. Elsewhere "4 Me" balances a rich vocal hook with eyes-down bass tones and distant synth stabs and "Area 51" rolls with an almost classic rave Warp 91 style feel. Covering all styles and corners, this EP is more than a clever title.

Cave Explorer - (3:54) 132 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
BUY
Selektar - (4:34) 134 BPM
from $1.88
Review: Sheffield's JG may not be Ballard but there's still plenty of crash in his upfront hard-hitting bassy productions. Cave Explorer may be his most fierce yet, boasting two cuts that literally provide passage to the underground. The title track is all about the hip-hop string samples, jukey percussion and lots of wobbly metallic subs. He brings some serious fiyah on "Selektar" though - with distant police sirens mixing with scattershot beats and eccentric basslines. This produce has ventured deep underground and has discovered pools of creativity hidden beneath.

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!

Played by: Tigs
Review: It's a case of broken beat meets 2-step here on the positively phantasmagorical Brunette EP by Mind Of a Dragon. There are four stakes-raising tracks this time round, staring with the scattershot beats and undulating rhythms of the title track. Then we're on to some killer haunted garage on "Voices' with atonal noises riffing off elastic beats and distant hazy vocals. "Right Way" is deep and soulful and driven by off kilter beats and synths before "Lonely" wraps things up with a nostalgic take on the golden days of UKG. A classic in the making.

Review: Before delivering the promised 'arsenal of dutty new tunes for all you functioning bass addicts' next year, fledging bass label Saucy round up this one with a selection of all their best stuff from their sophomore year. There are a whopping 24 tracks to get your teeth into, highlights of which include the insanely catchy moody pop of opener "Summer Rain" by Inkline, the slamming garage/house of "Don't Stop (Jack Swaffer remix)" by Mike Jones and the eccentric beats and creeped out sounds of the "House Of Haunted Horrors" by Spooky and Spekktrum. What a label, what a year!

Psycho - (4:35) 126 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Review: In the 90s AC Slater was the totally ripped jock in Saved By the Bell, but now however, it's the name of an LA bass maniac. Arriving on his own mighty Night Bass Label, My Peoples is a two track EP that continues to bring the sub-heavy heat to the USA. The title track is a storming 4 x 4 thumper with hip-hop samples and a stop-start dynamic that'll stop you resting on your laurels. Next up "Psycho" is a throwback to the deep and jazzy garage/house of the 90s - imagine vintage Van Helden with a firecracker in his tracksuit!

from $1.88
Review: Tumble Audio is what you would call a truly "UK" label. This is because it deals in just about any strain of British dance music, and from garage, through to dubstep, and post-bass, it always delivers the goods in style. This time it's Archive with five smoking riddims from the depths of underground, and "Keep Guard", along with "Ghana Police" are what you would call true hybrids - the beats are harsh and stepping, while the low frequencies dominate the groove. "Gully", once again, proves that 'bass' music really is a thing by chucking in just about any genre imaginable that falls on the hardcore continuum, and there's even a few remixes of "Keep Guard", one stripped-down Burial-like reinterpretation by Bromley, and heavy-stepping version by Sly-one.

Review: Whether it be house, tech-minded house, or house-leaning bass excursions, the Artifice label have impressed us with their recent run of form. This is, in part, because they've managed to surface new talents out of thin air; this new EP by newcomer Squane is exactly what we've come to expect from these guys, and it ticks all the boxes in terms of sonic diversity. "Totemic" is a pounding, tribalistic drum-dance that stands alone and untested, a true club shaker that'll get the head-nodders moving. "Affliction" is more on the dubstep end of things, and delivers a fine tech-house groove. The former is remixed by Troy Gunner into a slow, shape-shifting mutant of a track, while Hypho revamps the latter by stripping it down entirely, and adding in a burst of juke percussion for good measure.

Review: Absolute bastions of one of the UK's most unabashed underground genres that refuses to be reshaped or sell out, Northern Line and 4x4 UKG are synonymous with each other. Here's yet another 16 track memo from the gully institution, each cut underlining just how consistent the label and its nasty Slugs bit on the side have been in 10 years: the rolling 140 thunder and classically trained riff of "Monkey Slugs", the happy slapping skank spanks and gritty 4/4 hammer-heaven of JC's "Porno Slugs", the candyfloss vocal funk and speed garage warbles of Paleface's "Lovely Slugs" the tempo terror of "Kebab"... The list goes on and on. Essential sonic slime for those that know!

Review: What will first contact with aliens be like? Will they welcome a sincere exchange of values and information? Will they enslave our souls? Will they turn out to be mankind's greatest allies in much darker intergalactic future? Longstanding Four40 doublet Nu Era don't have the answers... But they're happy to soundtrack our pontifications with gutter-chomping 4x4 bass-bitten house. And whether the dagger-edged low end of the title track woos the greys, the funkular groove of "Already Dead" sends them packing or the croaky, humanised robotica of "No God Here" foretells a bleak battle only sci-fi novelists and hippies could possibly imagine, the messages are clear: Aliens are inevitable and Nu Era make damn fine club music.

Review: Established during UKG/deep house's latest halcyon era in 2011, Four40 have navigated the bass, house and garage landscape with understated charm, forward-thinking fusions and occasions splashes of gully for five years, amassing well over 70 releases in the process. To celebrate they're put together this immense 54 track collection that represents the label's many sounds and successes. From Regality's deep Chicago inspired chugger "Celebrate" to Morcee's subtle speed garage swag "It's You", Hybrid Theory's atonal bass grunts and happy slap snares on "Mind Games" and Tom Shorterz subverted soul on "Wot U Do", Four40 cover all bass bases and provide an opportunity to fill any holes in your collection. Here's to another five years.

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.

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: New Movement enlists the skills of Smokey B for its eighth single of 2016. Last spotted on the new imprint's inaugural "Transmission" collection, here he lays down some discerning bboy badnesss with "Licence". Utilising the same sample that inspired Caspa to name his label Dub Police years ago, the mood is deep and the rhythm is slinkier than a crunked up Distro. Remix-wise Celladore gets a warped bass 4/4 stomp on, Doctor Nick gets aggy on a dark garage flex while Mind Of A Dragon takes the UKG motifs to strange tripped out places. Don't fail this test.

Review: Hot on the heels of the dreamy soul-step gem Still You, Show them agency have now commissioned a follow up remix by Holy Goof. Where the original by Bristol producer Conducta was sleeker than a velvet-lined Cadillac, Midland's hero Holf Goof opts for a much more raw take. Boasting speedy 4 x 4 beats and a growling wobble bassline, the remix manages to provide a jam that keeps the anthemic song parts whilst delivering dancefloor mayhem at the same time. Boom!

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.

Ranging from the dark bubble/jazz-chord balance of Deckstar's "Wondering" to Lee Martin's organ-slapping "Wanna Be" via Duo and Chantelle Rowe's blistering vocal stunner "Enough Of Your Love", Nu Wave paint an on-point picture with clarity and originality.

Review: SMOAD - a brand new allegiance between two New Movement regulars Smokey Bubblin' B and Mind Of A Dragon. Together they've fused their sounds to create two wickedly contrasting pieces of UKG. "Mess Around" is all badboy breakbeat brockage a la Special Request while "Only One" is a beautifully loopy 4x4 chugger with all the right soulful elements. Remix-wise Celladore gets busy on a Rico Tubbs style 135 stomping bass house bash-up while DJD powers up with a naughty pair of northern strutters that wouldn't go amiss in a TQD bar fight.

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.

The title track is first and delivers some moody and sparse UKG married to a seriously raw bassline, "Never Meant To Be" is a dark garage/half-step hybrid powered by the warped vocals of Chanai Zinyuku and "Something, Something" is the most powerfully viscous slice of tech-garage-wobble-whatever! that we've heard in a long time. Lastly "Switch" wraps things up nicely with tasty 4 x 4 banger.

Review: Bristol's Fish likes to keep everyone guessing about where he's going next. As a junglist he's brought some serious fiyah but lately he's also dropped bass and house and well, you name it. The Square Waved EP mixes all them genres up and more. The title track is a fierce, carnival-tinged dubby monster and "Brick Top" is proper nasty urban 4 x 4 with real geezer samples and heavy bass. Remix-wise "Bad Luck On Dem" gets turned into deep tropical bass by Jook10, a UK-style jack-fest by Fish himself and proper mind-melting 4 x 4 by Rossi B & Luca.

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: 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: Some say the B stands for brutal. Others say it stands for beef. We reckon it stands for badman as he reminds us once again on Second To None. Digging deep into his Niche roots, cuts like "Endlessly" and "Caught Up" are ruthlessly heavy with their four-beat energy and riffy drive. If you fancy a little more sass to your bash then vocal two-step cuts "Behind Closed Doors" and "Forget Your Name" will both hit your (UK)G-spot. Needs more house? Jump straight on "From Me". You won't be disappointed.

Review: Bristol-born, London based bass man Dephex has building solid rep for himself through producing 'sinister, inventive beats in the 120-140bpm' tempo. Here he conjures up four cuts for the Impulse EP. "Bad" opens with percolating, forward facing bass and skippy beats. Elsewhere ""Bust" incorporates intricate stop/start beats and monstrous bass growls and "full Fat Butter" ventures into 2-step territory with extra lashings of rubbery bounce. Lastly "Impulse" features soft synth chords sharing the stage with relentless wobble bass and speedy 4 x 4 drums. Muchs power here.

Review: Powerful sonic slappage from Brighton badman Jook. Sitting somewhere between grime, dubstep and tech funk, all three cuts live to up the Certified Banger status. "Lean Back" is all about the tightly cut stabs that wrap themselves around the stop/start kicks and snares, "Alarmed" is all about the wobbles and is just waiting for a fiery flow of MC damage while "Lucy" shows us Jook's softer, star-gazing side thanks to velvet arpeggios and some really interesting sample textures buried deep among the beats.

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.

Review: Sheffield steel: Deadbeat UK doesn't release his trademark 4x4 fire as often as we'd like. But when he does; You know it's worth paying full attention. "Hustle All Day" works the hype on a sharp vocal sample before dropping into a layered bassline that strips on every riff. "Quick Turnaround" is all about the feet-down funk with its talking bass stabs and crafty sample tickle on the fill. Finally "Bag Head" pokes fun at the tickers with a sick higher toned bass riff that worms and writhes with menacing delight. Don't leave it so long next time please DBUK!

Review: Originally starting life as an instrumental with a different name, "Big Deal" has now properly arrived tweaked and reworked by Four40s' own Hybrid Theory and their regular collaborator Trilla. Boasting elements of grime, wobble an hip-hop this anthem is destined to blow up on dancefloors everywhere. "V.I.P." meanwhile sees this Midlands massive bring even more serious fiyah over four minutes of linear, attitude-heavy, tech-bass mayhem. After listening to this EP, the lyric 'you're in the presence of champions' is hard to argue with.

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.

Review: Boy 8 Bit exploded on to the nu-rave/fidget scene in the late Noughties alongside the likes of The Count & Sinden and Duke Dumont. He's taken a bit of a sabbatical of late but now appears to be back with more music. The first signs of his return is this new two-track release on Roska's Kicks & Snares. "Low Blow" dispenses with the noisier elements of his production (he's a big fan of death metal!) in favour of infectious tropical beats and shimmering melodic chimes. "Action Break" meanwhile, is even more percussive, with rat-tat-tat tribal snares rolling under undulating bass.
