Review: In all due respects, if you need background deets on Brockie and Ed Solo you need to go back to school. If you don't, then you know what level of trouble we're dealing with here as the two hugely influential titans of the genre revisit their Undiluted vaults for an incendiary collection of high grade bruisers dating back to the turn of the century. Still hitting with the same spiked out futurism as they did almost 20 years ago, tracks like the distorted riff blunderbuss "Cheltenham Bass" the slappier, break-riddled "Mind Overload" and the star-gazing riff of "Dutty" still pack major punches to this day. Not ones to just look back, they've also commissioned a load of on-point remixes from some of the sharpest acts in contemporary jump-up: Turno, Serum, Annix, T>I... Need we go on? The story continues.

Review: Send for the hazmats! Papa Gee's Hazardous Musik flies into town on the version express with a series of rudeboy rubdowns. It's a one-way-ticket scenario from the off as Choppah juices up the skank machine on his take on Jayline and Gee's "Dancehall Ram" and Serum finally unleashes one of his longest-awaited dubs in the form of his groaning take on D Livin's 92 proto jungle classic. Deeper into the EP we ride to find a heavier, jumpier take on K-Jah & Vytol's "We Love Hip-Hop" from Inna Culture AND the 2016 version of D Livin's seminal shakedown. Dangerous materials!

Review: Z Records head honcho, Joey Negro, is back with a super sunny party jam, "Stomp Your Feet", of which the "Extended Mix" is a warm and bouncy retro boogie clap-fest. Negro also provides a spicier dub and the Tropical percussion loop-fest "Stomp Your Beats". However it's Hot Toddy's remixes here, a pulsating arpeggiated space-disco rework of the tile track and a fizzy and aquatic "Underwater Dub", that really stand out.

Review: Some of us reach for the stars. Other, more superhuman-like, people reach for entire solar systems... And get them. Superhumans like yung Tsuki who has consistently smashed every door down in sight since emerging 18 months ago. Crafty with the riff magic, every bassline he conjures could make your nan shake and these are no exception; the pitch-shifting bassline mutations on the title track, the rattling organic drum fill and high/low Q&A riff on "RGB" and the venomous hook on "Terror" are just three certifiable shakers. Stay tuned. For his next trick Tsuki will be reaching for the universe...

Review: Influential and prolific, Dave Lee has been one of house music's major proponents of soulful, disco-tinged, vocal tracks. Without question, he was instrumental in its development. Produced With Love is only the second ever Joey Negro album to be released and the first for more than 20 years. It proves that dance music with character still exists and rather than rely on sampling older records, the overwhelming majority of music is newly recorded. Rest assured that there's quite the supporting cast here, on the vocal front: the late great Diane Charlemagne on "Overnight Sensation", Canadian songstress and frequent Nick Holder collaborator Sacha Williamson on "I Recognize" and the legendary Linda Clifford on "Won't Let Go". Fellow London disco dons Horsemeat Disco collaborate on "Dancing Into The Stars" too. The second half of the collection focuses on Lee's impeccable remixes and yes: there is a version of "Must Be The Music" and a track by the inimitable Peven Everett entitled "Love Is Thicker Than Water" alongside several other gems.

Review: DJ Limited... Now there's a producer you'd be proud to take home to your parents. Strong, efficient but charming and funky; he's the hero we all need right now (but most of us don't deserve) "123" is one of the tunes that all DJs can drop, regardless of what ridiculous pigeonhole they've camped up in - steppy, minimal, left-of-centre, it's kinda reminiscent of Enei, Eastercolors & Noel's "Cracker" in the way it complements any type of mix and really stands out. "Baby" is more on the dancefloor side with its cute Q&A and soulful one-word vocal snippet. Think somewhere between Break and Voltage and you're in the right territory. Don't sleep.

Review: Top talent spotters in the Bass game; Project Allout are back with a new squad of bass-making talent, as well as whole host of established names that project helped to launch to the outer stratospheres in recent years. It's the third edition of their legendary Lengerz series packed with 39 tracks straight from the legion of Lengdom and as we've come to expect from the Steel City boys, they're covering the full gully side of the 125 to 140bpm spectrum; from the eski angst of Arkham's "Jacotanu" the tripped out video game Trap of Creep N00m's "419" to the Pulse X style 808 bass tones of Dubzta's "Energy".... there is even a bit of donk in there via Casement's Young Team. Put it this way, if you are a fan of basslines that make your face look like you're chewing lemons then there is something in hear for you!
Highlights here at Juno HQ include the skaggy chirps on Dead Beat UK's "Baghead VIP", Livsey's TC inspired "Tap Ho" and newcomer Cole slowing the pace but not the intensity with the earth shattering "Mud".
There's a reason why these compilations hang around the top of our charts for years on end, it's because they are jam packed with silly amounts of exclusive A-sides. You don't need to be an Oxbridge educated economist to realise that few labels in the game can boast bang per buck like this!

Review: Make the most of Serum's incredible output because at one point he's going to get arrested for murderation. And with this level of killer material, they'll throw away the key. "Black Metal" is the ultimate doom monger with its indecent drone texture that just groans malevolently over Serum's trademark rolling beats, "Ramparts" riffs on bag-rustling double bass while "Skeleton Key" strips the vibe right back to its essential ice-cold oscillating elements. Three more absolute killers from one of drum & bass's most respected artists right now.

Review: They might be averaging 2.5 releases per year but man are Blackley's Cre8 killing it. Every single release has been rammer-jammer with talent, ideas, fusions and energy. The "We Cre8" series epitomises this spirit and attitude the best as we're bombarded with heaviness from the off... "Medusa" teases with a starlit arpeggio on the intro before snapping your neck with a waspy bass drop, "War Mongers" is a much fuzzier, no-nonsense skin-scorcher, "Touch Of Generations" fires more lasers than an unruly robot while Jaxx provides balance with the springier funk of "Leaf Of Life". Rounding off with stern spacious bass tones of "Hemp Seed" and the timeless roller "Showdown", this is the best "We Cre8" edition yet.

from $1.94
Review: The recording career of Salzburg's Bernard Weiss, AKA Demuja, has followed the well-trodden path of multiple compilation appearances followed by well-received EPs for a couple of little-known labels. There's a feeling that he just needs a breakthrough, and this single on Jimpster's Freerannge label could provide it. Certainly, the four included tracks are amongst his strongest to date. Choose between the sumptuous, shuffling deep house dreaminess of "Move", the warehouse-friendly thrills of "B.o.o.m", the hard-wired Italo-disco revivalism of "Into My Brain" - all raging arpeggio lines and dreamy pads - and the fireside-warm deep house/disco fusion of "Turn Me On". The latter's fusion of live instrumentation, evocative vocal samples and rolling house drums is particularly inspiring.

Review: Whether he's slapping us around with Savage Society, poking our frontal cortexes on Never Say Die or getting jiggy in the jungle on the likes of Dub Damage, Aweminus is one of the few US artists who can flex this well around both 140/170 tempos. In the past he's proved his 360 skillishness on Calypso, Clawhammer, now he's doing it on Dub Damage. Highlights include the raw sheet metal bassline grit of ED-209 homage "Damned", the waspy lip-curling tubular bass on "Another One" and the infectious step-funk of "The Wabbit Hole". Highly wecommended.

Review: Now this is interesting... DJ Hybrid is releasing his second album across two EPs on both of his labels. Here we find "Addicted To Audio" on his flagship imprint Audio Addict. A dedication to the foundational D&B bug he was first bitten by, this collection shows his dancefloor side with raw, unkempt energy and riff dynamism; the low-end grunts and wry MC samples of "The Lurker", the logistical shades and euphoric thrust of "Forever" and beehive bassline and sudden flighty switch on "Boom Ting" are just three examples of Hybrid's high level addiction here. Now go and seek the second half "Deeper In The Jungle".

Review: Usually spotted causing riots on Ruffneck Ting, The Force steps over to Heist's Calypso Muzak with four outstanding moments of riff-inflicted sonic showstoppery. "Hallucinate" rolls with a sense of jumpy/funky bassline mischief that's reminiscent of the early 2000s without getting too nostalgic. Elsewhere "The Boogieman" brings us into the future with a gruelling, grizzly bassline that's reminiscent of your worst nightmares, "Living Dead" is the sharpest peaktimer of the set with its infectious, soaking wet savageness "Living Dead" while "Mash It Up" warbles and wobbles on a classic jungle bass tone and skippy break in a similar way to DJ Die's early 2000s work. Forceful.

Review: Although they've delivered plenty of fine singles over the years, it's invariably Session Victim's albums that get us hot under the collar. This is primarily because it gives them a chance to showcase a wider range of grooves, tempos and instrumentations amongst the ear-pleasing dancefloor workouts. Their sunny disposition, noted sample-spotting ability and varied inspirations are all in evidence on the German duo's third full-length excursion. It's a deliciously evocative, enjoyable and mood enhancing affair that smilingly meanders between dreamy jazz-house bliss, Bossa-Balearic fusion, disco-sampling cheeriness, glistening slow jams, Afro-tinged deep house warmth and humid dub riddims (the impeccable "Castle For Sale"). In other words, it's another hugely enjoyable romp packed full of winning moments.

Review: Lumberjacks In Hell just keep on trucking, this time calling upon the legendary skills of Karizma in setting their latest EP alight. "Work It Out" is a fiery slice of gospel choppery, whipping up a fevered line in vocal insistence that hardly needs a rhythm section to make you move, but still has the necessary goods underneath the hood. Marcel Vogel follows a similar tact on "I Got Jesus", spacing the jam out and working a bit more groove, but certainly tapping into the same spiritually enhanced vein. Karizma then returns to make an aptly named "Stomp Dub" of the track, rounding off an absolute beast of a party record.

Super-longstanding D&B bastion Drum&BassArena unleash their first EP in over 10 years with a special dedication to the driving drum fusion that's powered all our favourite jungle jams: The breakbeat. It's an all-star cast too... Bladerunner does his thing with a classic subby wobble and skippy breaks, Shimon gets his bouncy skank on with Darrison on "Believe It" while June Miller, James Marvel & MC Mota flip the breaks into a steppier, more fractured dancehall/jungle/madness switch up on "Don Dada". Those in need of a hardcore injection of rave purity should seek and support John B's ruthless "ENERGY" and A.M.C & Turno's glacier-blasting tech-jump melter "Ice Cold". Dedication's what you need.

Endless Summer (Soulphiction remix) - (5:34) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.94
Review: To date, Swiss quartet Alma Negra has carved a successful niche as makers of heavily percussive EP singles that look to the rhythms of Africa for inspiration. This outing for Heist Recordings draws on many similar influences, but shuffles further towards original production than their rework style back catalogue. Opener "Afrorleans" is a jaunty trip into shuffling Afro-house territory in the company of a cabal of Cajun musicians, while "Luanda Dub" is a booming, bass heavy late night trip full of swirling vocal samples and densely layered drum hits. If you are after some party-starting Afro-disco/deep house fusion of standout, then "Endless Summer" and a cracking Soulphiction remix of the same track will pushes a rubbery disco bassline to the fore to devastating effect.

Review: Welcome to "Rollers Club" where it's happy hour all day and night long. Bou will be your consummate host, and he's rolling deep in decorated company. For the sublime game of contrasts that is the opening tune NAMF helps him balance warm jazzy chords with wriggling grunty jump riff with insane and truly unique effect. Elsewhere fellow gutter-bass showman Telekom joins the party for some grizzly, brain rattling bass on "Violet", Bou goes solo for the brilliantly twitchy, sharp-shooting switch up "Poison" and the man like T>I strolls in casually late for the last, and indeed gulliest track. No antidote required.

Review: Reviewed by Jungle Strikes: The strength of Technique Recordings is really on show here with this massive compilation. Where to start when choosing a favourite?! When you have firm favourites of ours; Dumsound & Bassline Smith up against the likes of Tantrum Desire, Matrix & Futurebound or Brookes Brothers its always going to be a tough one. With over 50 tracks here we're definitely spoilt for choice. Tantrum Desire's 'Gravitate' is a monster of a track, those crisp drums up against his trademark strings and stabs really do the business. Other highlights for us are the liquid vocal quality of Brookes Brothers' - 'Good To Me', the reese driven charm of 'Run Away' by Fliwo and the Jazz bass vibes on 'Roller Forever' by Salaryman. Plenty here for the summer festivals!

And that's before we even get to the killer remixes. Addictive. As always.

Review: Dutchman Bas Roos is the latest producer to contribute to Exploited's Shir Khan-curated Black Jukebox series. He kicks off a fine EP via "Downtown", a lumpy, bumpy chunk of dusty, piano-laden peak-time goodness driven forwards by bustling drums and a killer disco style bassline. You'll find more blissful piano solos on the similarly hustling, low-slung "One Way", which also makes great use of impassioned disco-soul vocal snippets and restless handclap samples. Elsewhere, "Take Life Easy" is an impeccable hybrid of jazzy disco samples and swinging deep house percussion, while "Ugly House" sounds like a long lost collaboration between Kevin Saunderson's Inner City Project, Chez Damier and Sheffield-based dusty house specialist Thatmanmonkz.

Elsewhere, Jacob Stoy and Le Rubrique join forces on the beach-warm, picturesque deep house flutter of "Cafe KOZ", while Dan Bay tiptoes the fine line between sub-heavy dub pressure and lo-fi deep house on the spaced-out goodness of "Kurdistan Dada".

Ranging from the clipped and sinewy laser bass riff stabs of "Listen" to the more subverted biggie-bass grumblings of "Wake Up Fucked Up" by way of the sprightly skank and toxic slurry bass of "Twist", it's another scorching Ikon beacon for all drum & bass radars.

"Anubis" hits with a bassline that's impossible not to compare to early Clipz. All whistling and fierce but funky, you'll be kicking yourself in the anu(bi)s if you don't pick up on this quickly. Highlights punch and bump every twist thereafter... The plucked note riff on "Real", the melting bass textures on "Ask Frank", the show-stopping wobbles of "Legohead" and the iron skank damager "Sneak Attack" all hit serious spots.

Review: German house label Running Back has featured the likes of Radio Slave and Boris Dlugosch in its schedules. Now its time for cult hero Philipp Lauer to join the party and he's marked the occasion with the Phlipper EP, possibly his most Italo disco-influenced release yet. Basically the whole record is the sound of summer holiday fun - the title track is breathy retro Eurotrance, (think the Rhythm Of The Night) all stonewashed synths and hands-in-the-open-night-air melodies. "Muscle" meanwhile is more your 80s Outrun-style arpeggio disco and "Lauer Vizzi" is pure late 80s Italo house joy think Rimini via the Hacienda.

Review: For the first volume in Running Back's "Super Sound" re-edit series, boss-man Gerd Janson joins forces with Shan to tart up two lesser-known cuts from the Gibson Brothers, a sibling trio best known for their 1978 Caribbean disco hit "Cuba". They begin with a brilliant, dub disco style re-arrangement of 1979 cut "Ooh What A Life", whose celebratory vocals, chic-like guitars, vibraphone solos and rising orchestration all combine to create maximum dancefloor joy. It has the feel of a summer disco anthem in waiting. Once you've got your breath back, check the duo's version of "Heaven", which re-casts the T.K Disco cut as a hard-wired, bass-heavy disco-house jam full of razor-sharp strings, jangling pianos and bustling electric bass.

Review: This is how you do Let It Roll in style... You roll out to Prague with four of Hospital's deepest, most respected technicians on soundtrack duties: Anile, Krakota, Keeno and S.P.Y. Naturally they all smash the mission to pieces, Anile's brilliantly titled "Caveman Neil" does weird and wonderful things with harmonics, Keeno goes all-out gospel to tremendous effect on "Empath", Krakota cooks up some bouldering, smouldering drums and showers them with disco sprinkles while S.P.Y serves up a Randall-level roller. Take us to Let It Roll already!

Review: Back on Exit for the first time in over three years, Phizzy makes up for lost time with four slack-kicked blunderbusses. Raw, swaggering and more G'd up than a weekend at Ascot, "Hack" slaps with a twang-happy guitar lick, "Rebel Spirit" turns you into a ping pong ball and ricochets you down a mile-long aluminium tunnel while the brilliantly titled "(Right I'm Gonna Get Shedded This Weekend & Eat Some) Spinach" is based a precision processed vocal loop that flickers around the cast iron hustler riddim. We flex deeper for the steppy "Subway Swingers" before Mr Phizical closes on a blues nightmare scenario - droning beats and glistening guitars aplenty, it's the Manchester man at his deepest and most introspective. Fire.

Review: Outer Edges: One of 2016's best drum & bass albums just keeps on giving. First came the whopping remix collection from some of the biggest and best names in the game. Now come rubs from the top cats themselves (plus a few classic VIPs thrown in for good measure)... "Voodoo" gets the 172 treatment with a snare-slapping bashment riddim, "Dead Limit" is torn to pieces by a gurning halftime switch-up and "Surfaceless" enjoys a new industrial strength coat of arms. Beyond the outer edges we have 2011's classically-trained "Tommy's Theme" getting deaded 2017-style and "Diplodocus" finally rising from dubplate status in all its gritty, sheet-metal-bending glory. Five slices of serious remix toxicity. Essential.

Review: Joe Moses returns to the Bristol mothership with another five-pack of superb, restrained, streamlined steppers. "Mutiny" creeps with arpeggiated tentacles that rises and writhe around your very senses, "Maxim" takes off where "Hurts" left us with its finger-click riddim and slappy-happy bass twangs, "Lantern" mucks around in the sci-fi shadows while the bassline plays the role of a giant, and possibly poisonous, slug. Elsewhere "Puff N' Stuff" does things with a flute that really can't printed (but totally works) while "Sushi Flake" brings us to a sweet and spacious jazz finale. Tip.

Review: Middlesbrough murk maestro L3mmy Dubz continues his rich vein of wonky form on Reload with this full-strength five tracker. Tripped out funk comes in generous helpings on the likes of "Jupiter" and "Heat Ray" where the strange glitches and off-beat fills create momentum. Sheer sci-fi drama is conjured on the paranoid arpeggiated "Killer Bite" and soaring heat-seeker "Empire" while the riff on "Attention" buzzes and rattles with unforgettable high end friction. Powerful sounds from a fast-rising future star.

Review: Monday, Tuesday "Fappy" days. Wednesday, Thursday "Fappy" days. The weekend comes, our CDJs hum, ready to play this tune. Yeah... That's how good Heist's latest dispatch is for Low Down Deep - we can just murk up Happy Days lyrics. A massive record for Heist and Logan in recent months, you already know how big this is. "No Cure" takes us down dark pastures with more techy textures and just a mild twang of Belgium to the hook and plenty of Heist funk in the weight and swing. These "Fappy" days are yours and mine yo!
