Killyjoy's back and he's brandishing an ode to the girls of his hometown Nottingham. "Gyalist Riddim" proves that wobble ain't dead yet, with the original and its three mixes going heavy on the full on fat low end. The title track adds some serious snare roll chaos to the mix, whilst Deadbeat adds a slammin' 4x4 twist. Asa & Sorrow keep it hard and underground and Doctor Jeep wraps up the package with some deliciously doomy tropical vibes.
Here we have a couple of firsts - this debut release for new label Highly Swung sees Cole Train's DJ Impact joining forces with 'the legendary' MC Marvel for a fresh collaboration under the combined title of MIB. The first fruits of their hook up, "Break It Down", is a catchy streetwise swinger that flings some UKG and 4x4 beats into the mix and shows that the future is definitely rosy for this crew.
Despite only being a year old, Nu Wave Records have already gained a reputation for presenting the most forward thinking bass music in town. No easy feat but just take their latest release for example: RedgreenBlue is a producer located deep in the heart of America who is beating many UK producers at their own game. The Colours EP features three immaculately produced sizzlers - the pounding big room house of the title track, the growling, 8-bit wobble garage of "Bad Ideas" and the rave pad drenched techy-roller "Shape Shifter".
Yes yes, Londoner and bass fusion wizard XXXY steps up on his own city's Rinse for a gnarly lil' three tracker! As you probably already know, Rinse is not only one of the birthing homes of dubstep but it's also a cutting-edge label at the forefront of the UK sound. Aside from "Close The Door Behind You", the more wobbly and bass-heavy cut of the lot, XXXY's sounds verge heavily on the deep house spectrum, and both "Last Dance" and "Lately" carry a steady 4/4 beat with mild pads and a hypnotic groove.
