Review: Boy Kid Cloud is a young British vocalist on a mission to fuse club sounds with chart success, and this new double A-side is certainly a big stepping stone towards this goal. "6am" is big and anthemic, with lighter in the air melodies sung over a light piano-house backdrop. "I Need Love" is the opposite; all slow-mo aquatic RnB beats and breathy exaltations. Charts beware!

Review: Hot on the heels of Ministry Of Sound's killer future bass album, we now get a further 66 'speaker blowing basslines' that we're sure to get familiar with over the next few months. Highlights include Disclosure's warped version of the Artful Dodger' "Please Don't Turn Me On", the sparse soul of Woz's "Spoons" mix, Huxley's jackin take on Maxxi Soundsystem's "Stella's Way" and Wideboy's bonkers electro-disco anthem "Stars".

Review: Four To The Floor have been blazing a trail of future-garage destruction over the last few years, building up a solid regular roster in the process. Here's a killer round up of what their acts are currently up to. In the case of 8th-Ski, quite a bit: 60s kitsch lounge finely cut with some feisty breaks on "Jazzy Style", melancholic UKF on "Makes Me Wonder" and euphoric retro house on "On Me". Solution is currently all about slammin' speed garage, while Aleks Zen ends things with the celebratory sax-house vibes of "Let You Know".

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: A cursory listen to this EP would easily lead the listener to believe it was made by some underground British bass guy who wears his baseball caps sideways. But they'd be wrong; Klaves is actually 21 year old producer Mikolaj Gramowski from Poland who has pretty much beaten the British producers at their own game: "You" is an awesome blend of late 90s garage and house. "Hope It Gets To Love" is sassy future garage, and our fave is the Fault Lines remix - a slamming house scorcher featuring the kind of thumping kick not head since "Da Funk"!

Review: Nottingham/Leeds duo, Sergic and Lyka arrive in fine style here with their debut release on their own label Tumble Audio. "Bulletproof" is a pumping, breaky beast that sounds like bullets bouncing off the armour of an angry robot. Meanwhile "Shame' is all skippy beats, housey percussion and dubby bass, while "Glod" ups the tempo for some wobbly 4 x 4 fun.

Review: Ahh, Top Billin'; the label that keeps on giving! These unstoppable Finns have yet another serving of sizzling hot bass for us in the form of this new two tracker from Kepikei. This shady producer is gaining momentum and it's no surprise - "Bust A Move" is a totally cool slice of evil basslines, doomy vocal samples and an underlying booty vibe. "Ghettomaster" is the one though, a killer slice of arpeggiated ghettotech - totally baddass!

Review: Ping-ponging between labels Basslight and B-Dem, Cambridge producer Benjamin Abbott has notched up a string of impressive bass-led singles in recent times. Here he's back on the latter with a sizzling two tracker. Featuring 2-step beats and floaty and delayed synth melodies, "Cave Diving" is deep and aquatic and reflects the cover art of a swimmer in cobalt blue subterranean caves. "Epiphanies" is much darker and marries a doomy post-dubstep bassline to the familiar rhythms.

Review: The chart-bothering Surrey siblings Disclosure are back with possibly their best offering yet. Released on the Hot Chip-affiliated Greco-Roman label, "Control" is a superb slice of sultry and soulful minimal garage, with short of breath vocals that echo vintage Janet Jackson. Joe Goddard seriously challenges the glory of the original with a mesmerising doomy, acid-tinged electro-disco version. Bonus tune "Lividup" is an ecstatic bleep-garage joy and there's further fun with "Boiling" being given cosmic trance (Dixon) and mega camp house (Medlar) workovers. Plus "Whats In Your Head" gets a boombox house mix by Mak & Pasteman.

Review: Don't worry, "Dappy" isn't an ode or homage to N-Dubz' ratty frontman. In fact it couldn't be further from Dappy's cheesy UK grime-lite if it tried. Romping away with a resonant warbling bass and unrelenting 4/4 stomp, it's an ultimate buzz cut that doesn't sound too far away from a Dirtybird record. Remix-wise Belgian ghetto-groover Kill Frenzy pitches down the vocal sample and adds much more of a haunted flavour to the groove. Either version is dark enough to send Dappy crying to his dear old mum.

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: We Are Nuts aren't exactly known for their deep, contemplative musings, but who needs that on a dancefloor at 3am anyway? "Bombaclat" is a blazin' 4x4 wobbly bass banger, and "Daily Dose" is like a housier UKF take on an already pretty eccentric baile funk stomper. Finally DJ Q steps in bringing a whole tonne of flabby wobble to add to the ravey keys. Messy, very messy.

Review: Timoti is the nom de plume for rising producer Gael Pintos. Here he delivers "En Otra Ciudad", an accomplished slice of trancey Euro-hop, with a catchy autotuned lead vocal. Remix-wise, there's three on offer, Barcelona's Alizzz delivers a bassy hip-hop version that sounds like its been caught in a big soft synth blizzard. Estrada go the hard-to-knock 80s electro-pop direction, which is great fun, while Save Our Souls go deep for some swirly 90s RnB vibes.

Review: "Enough" is the latest release from Afro-house enthusiasts Pepesoup on their own Soup imprint. With its deep, velvet vibes, gentle steel drum lilt and yearning vocals it's clear they have a sparse but soulful anthem on their hands. The club mix gives the kick a good um, kicking and beefs up the bass too! Jacopo Mancini takes things in more upbeat direction, turning in a sublime slice of pure Ibiza house.

Review: Gary Spence aka T-Polar is a prolific producer from Belfast. Here he demonstrates his considerable production skills over four future bass corkers. "Feetwork" is not as fast as the genre it's name references, instead its trippy, leftfield 2 step of the highest order. "Twinkle Toes" is quirky garage, riddle with chopped up RnB vocals and fun vibes, conversely "Little Big Man" is dark, moody and warped. The Unknown remix of the title track is even darker, evoking the serial killer disco vibes of recent Burial material.
