Review: Murderation: Filthy Habits have been pushing out high grade drum & bass for some years now, but this is a whole new level. Highlights include the way "Artificial Intelligence" subverts everything you know about drops with its rising, paranoid riff; the way "1.17AM" creates the sensation of driving 100mph down the wrong side of the motorway; the way "Retaliation" buzzes and jitters like a digital bees nest on fire and the way that sudden extra jungle fill on "Yeah" well and truly knocks you off your feet each and every time. Powerful, uncompromising and utterly, utterly filthy.

Review: 21 years old. How about that then? Some of us were barely out of nappies when London Elektricity first launched the imprint, some of us remember like it was yesterday. Either way, we are all united under the big flouro H and right now they're celebrating their coming of age with a humungous 70 track collection. Yes, 70! Each cut handpicked to represent the London imprint's constantly evolving but always soul-touched and groove-laden sound are 24 exclusives such as Urbandawn's insane version of Reso's "Taiga", Fred V & Grafix's titanium colab with Metrik "Tension", Serum & Inja's already-massive "Blow Dem" and Whiney's remix of TC's chop-slapping "Storm Brew". Massive. Happy birthday Hospital!

Review: Filed under Q in the D&B dictionary for Quintessential Breakage Rollers, James Breakage Boyle has launched his own label and it would appear he's well and truly back in the jungle. "Elmhurst Dub" is all about the break and the dubby washes while "Anymore" is one a moodier steppy vibe. Both subby, slinky, dank and dangerous, neither track could be purer if Doc Scott gave them an autopsy. True craftsmanship.

Review: Following the hugely successful launch last summer, Lenzman delivers another album-sized trove from his new brand The North Quarter. Once again he's in generous mode as eight tracks (including an intro skit and versions) flow like fine soul wine. From the silky dynamics of "In My Mind", where Manchester singer IAMDDB really flourishes with neo soul allure to the darker late night drive of the Jubei-featured "Park Hill" via the delicious smoky piano-lingering haze of the Steo-fronted "Tender Love", this is the sound of Lenzman in his element, relishing in his sound and vision at levels we've never seen before. The North Quarter is shaping up to be something really special.

Review: Agro a-go-go.. The Sub-liminal bossman breaks down the doors of 2017 with four absolute flatteners. The story starts with "The Music" where a crisp, warm skank and vocal are soon shoved into a murky pool of low-end riffage, jump-up with added funk in the groove, this will spark up any dance in any corner. "Vengeance" follows on a meaner tip as stern bass and sudden amen flurries lick upside your senses and "Cold Roads" has one of the coldest drops Agro's ever created - sinister, moody and tubular, it is 1997 all over again. "Crush" concludes this fearful tale with the help of equally rising Leaf. Slapping and buzzing with a mild nod towards the Bristol sound and Clipz in his early prime - there's mischief in the moodiness. We'll let the music do the talking from here on.

Review: SpectraSoul really aren't messing around with Ish Chat. Now hitting their third release, they've put out an album-sized trove of floor fire over the last year. No compromises, each cut has been exceptional and ticked a completely different box, this is the sound of two men on their absolute A-game... "Second Chance" is a persistent roller with pristine drums, an evocative faraway vocal refrain and lush grainy textures, "Fade Away" is just absolute darkness with a gruff, ruff BC-style grit to the bassline, "On & On" is a dreamboat roller with so much emotion you'll melt any crowd you play this to. Finally "Beat Keeps" taps into a halftime mentality with a whole gamut of gully twists along the way. Powerful stuff.

Review: Since first dropping on wax in the autumn, this multi-artist affair has gone on to be one of Local Talk's most popular releases in years. It's easy to see why. Jamie 326 and Masalo's "Testify" is a fabulously urgent concoction - a low-sling, disco-tinged deep house bomb built around a restless rhythm track, impassioned, gospel style vocal snippets, and killer Clavinet lines. Sameed's dustier, sweatier "Can't U" offers a different slant on the same idea, offering a basement-bothering stomper that utilizes many of the same samples. Finally, the same artist delivers something looser in the shape of deep jazz-house jam "Dusty Jazz".

Review: The Teflon Don returns to LDD with four more of his signature seismic bass sessions. "Bomb Squad" sees him colliding with Turno once again for another drama damager where big strings wrap tightly around a serious groaning bass hook while "Think First" whips up a storm with a classical lead that plunges into a crisp and infectious riff. Dig deeper into the collection for a frenzied Q&A-characterised master blaster ("History Making") and a thundering orchestra-charged harmonically-heaved shredder ("Art Form") Serious rawness.

Review: Nottingham rudeboy Slipz slides into Subway HQ with four stark, steppy bassline grunters that will melt any floor this side of 2020. Kanine jumps on board for the opening shots on "Keyboard Warrior" - all metallic and rasping with venom. Elsewhere "Check This Out" rattles with a harmonic riff reminiscent of a young TC and rattling snare-heavy beats, "Massacre" creates a blood bath with its Hazard-style thick-n-fast ravaged riff while "Ha!" has the last laugh with some heady Generation Dub style grunty riffage. Don't lay off this one.

Jungelknugen (Prins Thomas remix) - (8:56) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.86
Played by: Ear Trumpet
Review: Cheekily, Todd Terje has decided to put out these remixes of forthcoming album track "Jungelknugen" before we've had a chance to hear the original version. While it's hard to know how revolutionary these remixes are - or otherwise - it's fair to say that both Four Tet and Prins Thomas have brought their A-game. Keiran Hebden steps up first, layering up looped, kosmiche style synthesizer refrains, wide-eyed piano motifs, low-slung analogue bass, and the kind of jazzy, off-kilter drum machine beats that simultaneously feel loose and sturdy. While undoubtedly impressive, it lacks the hustle and bustle of Prins Thomas's interpretation, which is drive forwards by heavy, bleep techno style sub bass and the producer's own groovy disco drums.

Review: Following a recent dalliance with Brooklyn-based Razor 'N' Tape Reserve, COEO returns to the loving arms of Toy Tonics with another solid four-track excursion. Happily, they hit the ground running with the rushing positivity of "Mydonna", a bumpin' chunk of peak-time house goodness built around some superb disco samples and a bustling groove. The accompanying, "alternate cut" smartly emphasizes some of the original instrumentation, whilst adding some subtle swing to the disco-house drums. On the flip, you'll find the deep, smooth and sensual "Torrow", and the breezy, atmospheric, piano-laden shuffle of "Coast To Coast".

The purring subs and creepy vocal echoes of Euphorics' "Public Secret", the 1.21 gigawatt electrical current bass of The Invaderz "Underground", Jaybee's loose, slinky roller "Get Nasty", the immense supergroup roller magic of Serum, Jaybee & Dave Owen's "Pure Vibes", L-Side and Roger Bari's late 90s-flavoured space-bound jungle jam "Rock It". The list goes on. As on point as ever, Chronic are constantly smoking.

Review: When Digital says VIP he means VIP. Each of these cuts smack with some of the finest, fieriest, fizziest dynamics drum & bass can offer: Swift's take on Digital & Drumsound & Bassline Smith's "Bail Out" is an epic jungle monster that will slay from now until 2417 (don't ask us what happens in 2417 - you don't want to know) Benny Page follows with a spaced-out bashy drum set on "Calling" that tips its hat to both Jamaica and Manchester while J:Kenzo does a madness on the cult anthem that is "Daylight Robbery". Finally S.P.Y takes a leaf out of the Roller Bible and writes a whole chapter for "Deadline". Very important.

Review: Skeptical & Alix Perez... Contemporary drum & bass production tag-teams really don't get any sharper, deeper or slicker. Following previous collaborations "Elephant Dreams" and "Room 667" with four stark cuts, get ready for a lean, mean adventure: "Without A Trace" grunts with a grainy textured hook that's one of a kind, "Solitude" stutters and wriggles with minimal mystery - each of the key ingredients comprising a beastly groove that defies the sum of its parts. Further into the odyssey we hit the incredible oceanic synth bliss, cosmic soul and jungle tidal waves of "Taurus" and get our creps stuck in the gooey swampy halftime gully soup of "Killa". Crucial.

Review: For the latest release on his prolific Midnight Riot label, Yam Who has parachuted in special scalpel agents Disco Troopers. The all-action All Night Long EP is a perfect showcase of their style, which blends big disco samples and even larger beats with original electronic elements inspired by acid house and Italo-disco. The EP's headline attraction is undoubtedly opener "All Night Long", which underpins surging orchestral disco samples with heavy analogue bass and crunchy house beats. The strangely familiar "Eleven" sees them expertly blended druggy TB-303 motifs with spacey chords and Italo-disco style arpeggio lines, while "Howlin" is a fuzzy, cosmic disco vocal cut for dancefloors that like their grooves wavy and psychedelic.

Review: In just a few short years, London's Uprise Audio has made quite an impact as a label that explores the deeper, more textured side of dubstep and bass productions. Here label boss Seven collects 13 of the dopest new jams by the label's impressive roster. Highlights include Seven's own "Get Down", which features squelchy, metallic bass and stop/start trappy beats, the creepy mechanical tribal cacophony of "Herd" by Feonix and the retro horror synths meets digi dub grooves of "Arcade Dub" by Markee Ledge.

Review: Disko's latest digital-only release is a meeting of musical minds. It features two groovy, musically rich disco-house collaborations co-produced by sometime Large Music contributor Paul Rudder and fast-rising talent Tete de la Course. While "Cadillac Disco" - a tasty fusion of rolling, bass-propelled grooves, wild flute solos, punchy horns and cheeky vocal samples - is rather good, it's opener "Makin' The Magic" that hits home hardest. A smooth but bumpin' dancefloor shuffler with bold organs, jangling acoustic guitars and eyes-closed vocal samples, it sounds like the kind of track that will easily slip into both house or disco sets. Roberto Rodriguez provides the obligatory remix, gently tugging the track further towards disco-tinged deep house territory.

Review: If you were around in 2006 and you hadn't heard Oxia's legendary anthem "Domino", you must have been sleeping under a rock! The track has certainly stood the test of time; so much so that the French producer has decided to celebrate its ten year anniversary with a series of remixes by some of the scene's current best. Some may if it 'aint broke why fix it? But rest assured that these renditions are equally worthy of your attention and come courtesy of Agoria's Sapiens imprint. They're all good, but our favourites had to be German duo; the Innervisions affiliated Frankey & Sandrino with their slinky and hypnotic take that shows us all just how you make a 'dark journey track', while m_nus alumnus Matador serves up a more hard hitting version where tough drums support adrenalised drones and Detroit style string stabs. Finally the master himself Robag Wruhme delivers the goods as always with his rather sublime "Lasika remix". The man's uncanny ability to recreate tracks that can compete with the original's quality is something to behold.

Review: We're not sure how much The Force sold his soul for, but we reckon Beelzebub must have given him a handsome deal as there are some seriously savage skills at play here. The hurricane bass harmonics on "Sold My Soul To The Devil", the Die-style bass mischief of "Field Of Vibrations", the "Nightflight" style sub flutters of "Looking For Trouble" and the balance of dreamy strings and early Playaz style bass riffage on "Kick The Flow". The whole package is authentic, true to the craft and original. May The Force be with you.

Further proof of his skills - and those of his label artists - can be found on this eighth expansive Vintage Music compilation. It gathers together a scintillating selection of reworks that veer from good-time disco smashers and groovy warm-up gems, to scorching disco-funk slammers and bouncy, sun-kissed shufflers. Happily, there's a mix of old-fashioned rearrangements and tooled-up reworks, with source material that's both well known and obscure.

Review: As the dust continues to settle from Emperor's deeply personal debut album Dispositions, along come four unique versions that add whole new narratives to his tracks: long-time friend and all-round legend Phace flips "Haste" with a whole new dynamic of funk that's almost jump-up in its nature and attitude. Ivy Lab lay down serious halftime heat with the brilliantly slouching, lolloping g-style twist of "Jounce" while Klax switch up "Made Of Light" with different, more dramatic style of halftime. Finally we hit the most interesting curveball of all - a touching, unplugged take on the evocative "Made Of Light" where SOLAH's vocals tremble with even more poignancy against the piano. Emotional.

Review: Following last year's "Spaceship", Ukraine's Dub Head lands his craft at Dispatch HQ once again... "Cepheid" twinkles with a deep, almost jazzy or Detroit-ey resonance, all measured heaviness with light years of rolls. "Pulsar" emits stronger rays of energy. A tight stepper with sprung funk and molten lava textures, it's as magnetising as its name suggests. "I Need It" whips our heads back from the cosmos with a soul-slapping vocal sample that surges with allure while "Bad Signal" shuts down the system with a subtly trippy, minimal funk groove where every sound and element has its rightful place.

Review: Tag-team dynamite, Villem and Phase follow up their Metalheadz EP last year with this heavyweight three-tracker on Horizons. "Uno" says it all... A droning, scuzzy bassline flexes up and down over brisk rolling breaks while some beautiful ambient pads creep in from the background, "In Search Of" takes us much deeper down the rabbit hole with a shark-like tech bassline and ghostly vocals. Finally "Tell Me" seals the deal on a springy jungle fix, complete with a breakdown sent direct, recorded delivery, from heaven. Immaculate.

And that's just four of over thirty moments. Trust... We can't stress how massive this is.

Review: A key radar fixture since emerging on Euphonique's Sub-Woofah a few years back, Epicentre makes a return to Hybrid's Deep In The Jungle with five more jaw-dropping jungle jams. There's a strong sticky-icky theme as we spark up - "Dem Vibez" is a soundsystem shaker with notorious lyrical levels while "I Like Dope" wobbles with a bassline so authentically jungle it still needs to pay its Poll Tax. "Featherweight" belies its name with heavyweight drums and rolling breaks where a grunting sub provides the main hook. Stepping closer to the light, "Sweet Dreams" is a more cosmic roll-out with subtle psychedelic flourishes while "Watch Your Back" is an all-out lesson in jungle theatre - toxic bass, operatic vocals, sheer dance hedonism. 100% vibes.

Tailored 100% for the dance with a cool restrained, lean subtlety to each groove, each cut on Hackers shows us exactly where the Brazilian duo are at and what they're capable of. The buzzy, waspy sizzles of "Ghost Lab", the popping, clicking percussive flare and thick sub swing of "Papa Johnny", the unabashed gruffness of "One Drop". The list goes on. True DJ's producers with an eye on the funk and an eye on the gutter, Jam Thieves are smashing it.

"TMB" sees the trio taking us on an even techier tip with its loopy, hypnotic vocal loop while crew mates Distro & Archive give UK funky a dark, demented update for today's paranoid times. Final S.O.B.A.D member Bromley winds down the trip by completely stripping "My Name" back down to a classic electro breaks groove. Block rocking.

VIP-wise he's re-touched his last Eternal tracks with a few sinister surprises along the way. Selection satisfaction guaranteed.

Review: Frankfurt innovator Rajko Muller returns as Isolee, working his magic this time for The Drifter's rather impressive Maeve imprint; which in recent times has brought us fantastic work by Ed Davenport, Baikal and Ripperton. "Pisco" is a slow burning groove with phased marimbas that cause a hypnotic dream state, while "L5 Syndrome" dives deeper: this smooth and introverted trip is definitely suited to the early night as it is for the afterhours and reminds us of his seminal, earlier works in the nineties for imprints like Playhouse. Finally, the title track is where Muller saves the best for last; this dubby, lo-slung groove is drenched in delayed and reverberated aesthetics. More great work by one of electronic music's true innovators.

Review: Tyke's Holographic Audio sparks up a big fat 2017 with a hefty seven-piece from the currently unfailing Damage Report. Every release of his last year was a blinder and we're looking just as destructive this year... The high harmonics and jazzy breakdown on "The Jitters", the crisp minimal funk and loose triplet swagger of "Back Ark", the cosmic twangs of "Backspace", the sandpaper volcano that is "From Earth", the wideboy wobbling sub and lolloping drums of "Not Right"... Each track hits with its own distinctive yet consistently heavy charm and character. Always underplayed and rough around the edges, these are the perfect antidote to the over-produced, digital-finessed D&B du jour.

Review: Given the quality of Steve Werkshy' Young's expansive, nine-track debut on Late Shift - 2016's Reworks & More - we're not surprised that Yam Who has signed him to Midnight Riot. His first outing on the popular edit imprint contains a trio of immaculately crafted reworks. On opener "Don't You Want Me", he carefully fuses elements of '80s soul, jazz-funk and soul-flecked deep house to create a loose, saucer-eyed gem. He utilizes all of his knowledge of build-and-release structure on the similarly soulful "Surrender", which sounds like a 21st century update of the kind of proto-house dubs that were popular in the Paradise Garage circa 1986. He rounds off the EP with "Supermoon", a chunk of loopy, filter and delay heavy disco-house that rises and falls in all the right places.

Review: Some eighteen months after it first dropped on wax, Whiskey Disco's brilliant Disco Galaxie EP finally gets a digital download release. Given the quality on show, it should be an essential purchase for any club-focused disco DJ. The real killer is Kon's "Promised Land" edit, a thrillingly epic re-arrangement of a long slung, bass-driven disco monster that slowly builds to a dubbed-out crescendo over nine mesmerizing minutes. Elsewhere, Jacques Renault's "Disco Galaxie" is an authentic scalpel rework of a swirling, string-laden space disco stomper, while Love Dance moves towards Philadelphia Soul territory on the impassioned disco hustle of "Who Is He".

On a serious mission to spread positivity amid the scary climate, "I Will" is undiluted soul vocally, and musically as Patife dusts off the ivories with finesse. "Your Name" unplugs for an acoustic barbed tale from Skittles while "Sin" brings us back up to drum & bass with Utah Jazz laying down true drama in the groove. Finally Calibre creeps into the fray with a funk groove that's almost jaunty in its swing and dubbed guitar echoes. DRS respectfully joins in mid-way, really letting Dominck's groove settle in deep. Untouchable.

Review: After years slaving away at house music's coalface, Red Rack'em is now big news. Given the runaway success of "Wonky Bassline Disco Banger", now seems an opportune moment for Danny Berman to release his second full-length under the alias. Predictably, Self Portrait is an assured, confident and hugely enjoyable set, effortlessly slipping between hazy house (check Rick Wade hook-up "The Music"), analogue-rich deep tech-house jams, loose, jazz-flecked workouts (the ace "Mad House"), disco-tinged fare ("Kos Mich"), and hard-to-describe weird-outs ("Sel", "You Used To Make Me Feel"). Naturally, it also includes fine versions of his 2016 anthem, and killer recent single "Tomato Pope".

Review: The latest Norwegian talent to join the Full Pupp family is Laars, a producer previously known for his involvement with Norse disco band Tog. The two tracks showcased here neatly fit into the Scandolearic blueprint, with Laars layering rising, blissfully Balearic synthesizer melodies over a chugging, arpeggio-style groove on brilliant opener "None". He flips the script a little on "LYSaR", clustering fizzing, intergalactic electronics, deep space riffs and jammed-out Clavinet lines around a rolling, cowbell and bongo heavy rhythm track. Willy Nickerson handles remix duties, first serving up a loose, dense, druggy and pitched-down interpretation of "None", before turning "LYSaR" into a spacey chunk of Afro-disco madness.

Review: Hot to trot vibes machine FooR goes balls-deep on this epic 50+ track compendium. Bulging at the seams with slinky two-steps, stinking basslines and every essential element in between, it's an incredible collection of on-point bass music cuts spun around the UKG / bass house axis. Those with a soulful interest should instantly fall for cuts like Thorn's "In 2 Deep", anthem-addicts need to know about Foor's own heavenly synth/guttural bass jam "Lift Me Up", bass-devoted breakers will go giddy for "Don't Hold Back", gully munchers will chow down heartily on Tyrone's "Ravin Face" while DJs in need of more of a classical deep roll-out should be smitten by Tengu's "Evil Ting". And that's not even scratching the surface - this is a true trove of future talent and shadowy sonic skill. Golly gosh YosH.

He Is The Voice I Hear - (10:29) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.86
Review: There's naturally been plenty of hype surrounding The Black Madonna's "He Is The Voice I Hear", which originally dropped on a single-sided 12" at the tail end of 2016. It's undoubtedly the fast-rising Chicagoan's best record to date, and feels like an unashamed tribute to Patrick Cowley's fine productions for disco icon Sylvester. While there are mournful notes - check the extended, beat-less piano intro -it doesn't take long to turn into a deliciously muscular, Italo-disco style chugger laden with razor-sharp strings, bubbling acid lines, and the kind of fluid piano solos that were once a hall mark of Frankie Knuckles' remixes. In other words, it's a fine contemporary disco record from one of dance music's most notable DJs of recent times.
