Fallout - (4:59) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Sub:Conscious
Review: Back after an absence of well over a year, the deep and moody Proxima is back in bass business, this time courtesy of Rinse. The beats are still around the 140 mark and the mood is still deep: "Trapped" kicks things off with some dark alleyway vibes - all shifty beats and general eeriness, "Fate" soon picks up the pace with some seriously anxious drum patterns and sweaty-palms-synth-pads and lastly the EP's heaviest track, "Fallout", is full of taut, writhing mechanical snarls. Still sinister, still fresh!

Shift by Commodo feat Jme on Deep Medi Musik Cue Track
Shift (instrumental) - (4:38) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: On his first release for Deep Medi Musik this year, Commodo taps up JME for a mean lyrical flow over the top of a typically monstrous production, making a perfect dubstep / grime crossover track in the process. JME has a blast pointing back to classic reference points from Kano and Wiley and many more in his conscious MC turn, while Commodo's beat prowls in the background with that exotic charm that has always marked out his style from the rest of the pack. There's a hooky chorus and plenty of grand stabs, and for those who just want the tune the instrumental is bundled in as well. The fact that the beat stands up on its own without any trouble says a lot about Commodo's studio prowess, which is no doubt why he continues to be a mainstay on Mala's label.

Mr. Rossi's Backpain - (6:01) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Manchester's label/clubnight combo El Diablo has a knack for releasing some pretty heavyweight edits, but this eighth installment of its To Rack & Ruin series really ups the ante. With DJ Rocca teaming up with N2B, we are treated to four precision scalpel jobs, all of which really tease out the bassy loops. Highlights include seven minute opener "Get Up" - a dubby odyssey into misty lands of shuffly beats, incessant basslines and wah-wah guitar aplenty. Also the suspended tension of Balearic mind-trip "Weird Safari" and the '80s slap bass aerobics of "Mr Rossi's Backpain" are worth checking out.

Review: He's back again, that Alien Disco Sugar, beaming out new communications from his Grecian headquarters. The Happiness EP sees a more sumptuous, groove-ridden vibe than usual, all set across four disco sizzlers. "Any Way You Wanna" begins proceedings with some sublime filtered disco-house set around that timeless Saddle Up And Ride Your Pony riff, "Blows My Mind" continues with the shimmering velvet and silk disco joy, it's all about the tight bass on "Feel It" and "Happiness" wraps it all up with a perky electro-funk confection.

Trip To The Galaxy (Fingerman's Zero G Rework) - (8:39) 98 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Having built up his reputation via a series of well-regarded re-edit releases, Australian producer Greg Packer has recently impressed with EPs of original music on Hotbox Boogie and Hot Digits. Here he returns to the latter with the expansive Diagnosis: Disco, a collection of tracks that expertly joins the dots between warm disco and slinky deep house. Highlights are plentiful, from the baggy, filter-heavy '80s soul shuffle of "Enuff Love" and the spiralling, near Balearic rush of "Hypnotizing", to the energetic throb of the gloriously synth-laden "Keep Doin' What You're Doin". Label boss Fingerman has a pop at remixing lead cut "Trip To The Galaxy", layering Packer's warm original elements with twinkling pianos, delay-laden vocal snippets and immersive deep house chords.

Strictly Entertainment by Break on Playaz Cue Track
Dulcid Tones - (4:11) 174 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Coming out to play with Playaz this time around, D&B's very own elusive genius Break returns with his selection of unique bass stylings in this slick double header. Showing off his love for all things jazz and dub, "Strictly Entertainment" pits rolling dancefloor rhythms with huge subby bass to create a fresh cross-pollination of sounds. "Dulcid Tones" features a smooth bassline groove whipped up straight from the heart of the '90s, dropped right into a creamy whirlpool of distorted bass and general junglist mania (and some Eastern influences for good measure). It's borderline mental, it's loads of fun and it's Break. What more do you want?

Review: Whilst the other acts on the Digital Wax label have soared ahead putting out EP after EP, the mysterious Midnight Surfer has been content to lurk in the shadows, quietly releasing new installments in his acclaimed Club Edits series. Here we have the third installment and it boasts four feverishly reworked rare disco joints. Highlights include Isaac Hayes' slinky romantic ramble "That Loving Feeling" and the catchy Bee Gees-style jam of T Con's "Let's Do It Today".

Summer (original) - (4:00) 109 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The French Touch revival is alive and well in this here EP, boasting four examples of brilliantly relentless thumping house. From the filtered funk loops of opener "Movin On" to the low-slung afterhours slinker "Summer" via the electro-disco-meets-funky-house anthem "Love In" it's almost like Paris circa '98 again!

Balanzat by Talamanca System on International Feel Recordings Cue Track
Balanzat (Beat Box mix) - (4:38) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Everyone loves a good story behind a record and few come with a more interesting narrative than this debut (and perhaps only) Talamanca System 12". The story goes that Gerd Janson and Phil Lauer were enjoying the Ibizan hospitality of International Feel boss Mark Barrot last summer, to the extent they were both gifted his unused Studio Electronics 'Boomstar 303' synth. Eager to repay such a lavish favour, Janson offered to remix a track Barrot was working on, an offer which eventually resulted in this 12". Four versions of "Balanzat" feature here, with an original, acid reflux, Tuff City Kids refix and ambient reprise to choose from. If this is the only Talamanca System record we will see it's a shame as it's a mighty fine addition to the International Feel discography.

Do You Have Any? - (6:15) 98 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Peza is a shady re-edit hero, whose previous releases have created all kinds of a stir in the disco world. This latest EP, Subway, for the esteemed Midnight Riot, has already notched up some serious pre-release support from the likes of Andy Weatherall and Horse Meat Disco. One listen to the four tracks included here and you can tell why - we get everything from some slowed-down Eurythmics ("Stranger") to the deep and spacey funk grooves of "You Ain't Never" via the female disco/clavinet interface funk of "Do You Have Any?".

Rattle by Cowboy Rhythmbox on Phantasy Sound Cue Track
Cowboy Rhythmbox - "Rattle" - (5:46) 122 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Jonathan kusuma
Review: The latest signings to Erol Alkan's label are Cowboy Rhythmbox aka edit king Nathan Gregory Wilkins and remixer, producer and mash-up expert Richard X. Given their past adventures and exploits, it's no surprise that Box is such a raucous affair. "We Got The Box" is based on a jacking, filtered groove with a woman intoning on repeat something to do with the title (although it sounds closer to "we got the pox"). However, it's not as impressive as "Rattle". Percussive and laced with acid, its Latino chants and insistent rhythm are sure to cause mayhem whenever they are dropped.

from $1.49
Review: Trashbat has smashed 2014 to pieces with his MindStep releases, and we reckon this is his best yet. Showcasing his broadest sounds throughout, we range from deep dungeon-bound murkage on "Realness" to smoky future soul of "Scale & Tusk" (where Sarah Zad doesn't sound too far away from a young Ms Badu). Elsewhere we get heavily meditative by the spacious arrangement of "Gold Fire" and get drenched by the big Detroit synth sprays of "Moist Beat". Six tracks of originality, each one exploring a different shade of bass, may Trashbat continue smashing for a long time to come.

Back Again (feat John Turrell - Animist remix) - (6:51) 123 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The latest track to be chosen as a single from recent album Chrome Waves is "Just Wanna Be Loved", the original of which sounded like a wine bar on the South of France circa 1985 (in all the right ways). Here however, its all about the remixes and there's some killer reworks to be found. Highlights include the mystic beat voodoo-tech of Art Of Tone's title track rework, the vintage jazzy Euro-disco of Hot Toddy's dub of "Back Again" and slick speed garage of Animist's celestial reverie.

Played by: Jamie George, Zed Bias
Review: All-round bass legend Zed Bias touches down on Black Butter with a hot new single backed by a rather killer selection of remixes. Title track "Shizam" features the vocals of Stylo G and Scruffizer, and it's a purely grimed-out affair from start to finish, with a heavy touch of percussive action. Among the three remixes, grime legend Plastician makes a rare appearance with a reinterpretation that takes us back to FWD's early days - that bassline is a true slasher in every sense of the word.

Review: Guilford's Bad Barbie is the self-proclaimed "first lady of nu-disco," whose sensual, saucy re-edits have seduced many fans including likes of Greg Wilson. Here she teams up with Evil Smarty for the Don't EP featuring four disco sizzlers - the warm and fuzzy '70s funk of ""Don't", the laid back strings and wah-wah jam, "Easy", the retro boudoir grind of "Love Me" and finally their celebrated rework of a Michael Jackson track, now re-titled "I Can't Get Enough Acid". Bad and evil...in the best possible way!

Found You by Chromatic on Utopia Music Cue Track
Chromatic - "Found You" - (6:22) 174 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Here's something to celebrate: a studio hook-up between regular sparring partners Break and Mako, and fellow Utopia Music artists Fields and Villem. "Shadowlines" is an undeniably forthright concoction - a pounding tech-step smasher that makes great use of glitchy electronics, snappy snares, weighty sub, nightmarish textures and creepy melodies. It's an excellent follow-up to the quartet's 2012 single "Dilligence". Flip for "Found You" by former Fokuz and Formation Records artist Chromatic, who drops a typically chiming and picturesque liquid D&B roller packed with fizzing rhythms, warm chords and hazy female vocal samples.

Review: Bambounou again proves he is a reliable source for straight up dancefloor music devoid of pretence and full of quality. The producer's French house side shines through on this fourth release for 50Weapons, but he still holds on to the ghetto vibe he's shown on his ClekClekBoom releases, while keeping it deep. "Feel Like This" features a skipping house beat with a repetitive vocal and evolving background textures, while "Onto This" is a fuller alternative thanks to upfront chords and extra percussion.

Review: The devil has all the best tunes, and it seems that Detroit's Pontchartrain has rustled up a little Faustian pact here just in time for Halloween parties everywhere. On the Devil's Funk EP, we get four naughtily nefarious joints - the tough '70s stomp of the title track, "Monkey See" is a saucy slinker for those blurry later hours, "Afrikan", with its trippy, accelerated, spacey funk rock is the perfect compliment for those whose punch got spiked. Finally "Creatures Of The Night" is a dubby rework of Laura Brannigan's 1984 Italo-disco classic "Self Control" - perfect for dancers who've lost theirs!

Review: Sheffield's Chip Butty label returns with its latest unmissable dose of bass, with label owner Dr Cryptic delivering three tracks alongside another trio of low-end heaters from Dr Oscillator. Brilliantly titled the Dr Who? EP, it sees Dr Oscillator deliver the digidub-flecked bass of "BIG", the frantic sub workout of "Cocaine" and dark, sinister stripped-back sounds of "Mandem". Dr Cryptic's contributions are on the much ruder end of the bass scale, with "I Don't Care", a peak time slice of 4/4 featuring red alert sirens, "Rudebwoi" a vortex of churning bass and killer vocals and "Gibbo" another tune guaranteed to mash up the dance with its frequencies. Essential stuff!

Lovechild - (11:24) 110 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Tonbe, 80s CHILD
Review: Solid Fool is one of those pesky "mystery artists" that are so prevalent these days - a well-regarded Austrian producer who wishes to remain nameless. Here Comes The Sun marks his debut for Yam Who's Midnight Riot imprint. His style neatly sidesteps easy categorization, utilising classic (and obscure) disco, funk, soul and electrofunk samples alongside nu-disco synths and weighty deep house grooves. It's a formula that guarantees fun-times and funk aplenty. Opener "Here Comes The Sun" is particularly good - a bumpy, thrill-a-minute fusion of P-funk bottom end, shimmering synths and vocals lifted from a classic cover of the well-known Beatles record. Elsewhere, "Lone Gone" is a delicious, toe-tapping head-nodder that adds a reggae swing to a killer disco groove, while the epic "Lovechild" is a 12-minute exercise in slowly building disco release.

Review: If you thought you were in for a treat with a brand new Jubei tune to rinse, just how much better did your day get when you found out dBridge was in on the action? A deep, dark, filthy rumbler of a track, "These Things" VIP was made especially for underground dancefloors in the dead of winter. Artificial Intelligence follows up with "Dillirious" VIP which looks to be one of the pair's most aggressively roof-raising releases in recent memory. Packed with punchy snares and a big, menacing bassline that just keeps on uncoiling from a tight mid-range of Tesla coil effects, it's the best conclusion to two perfect VIPs hammered out of two already damn good tracks.

First Time Around - (8:03) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Slowly dipping his toe back into the water of single releases, we now have yet another two new "Reworks" from the London soul boy who had, up to recently, been silent for months. He's continuing to maintain the quality too, with 'Wake Up" being a hypnotically accelerated basement funk fever-jam and "First Time Around" being eight minutes of uber-slick, hazy glamour funk.

Stronghold - (3:43) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Played by: VGB
Review: Dubstep producer Alex Fox - better known under his Sleeper alias - is remarkably productive; amazingly, Lander is his 11th single since the beginning of 2013. Here he returns to regular home Chestplate for another three-track bass assault. The title track wallows in the space Fox creates between its sparse elements. While little more than a collection of electronic noises, cavernous sub and a crunchy rhythm, it sounds unfeasibly roomy. The same could be said about the delay-laden "Stronghold", whose reverb-heavy hits and military snares work in perfect cohesion with Fox's intense bass. This dub-wise approach is intensified on "Crucially Dubbing", with ricocheting electronics and breakcore-influenced glitches spinning between the left and right channels.

Review: A lot of re-edit producers seem to be reappearing following a fairly long hibernation period. It can't be a coincidence that the sun's out too - as re-edits are good times music. The Reflex are finally back and there'll be some mighty good times soundtracked by "Bongle Joogie", an almost seven-minute muscled up version of Kool And the Gang's monster party jam. Meanwhile, Earth, Wind & Fire's timeless hit "September" gets tweaked into a floaty cloud of party joy, with some pretty impressive acapella breaks too.

Review: The newly founded In:Flux imprint launches its second release after Tik & Borrow's mutant drum-core single, and it's in the form of an extended collaborative release. Mr C goes in for the kill with three monster house mutants packed with enough low-end to send the dubstep boys into twist. Dr. Oscillator's "The Heist" is a similarly gritty and wobbled-out 4/4 lick, while Tik & Smuggla's "Scuffa Kid" goes into a more broken, swinging garage mode. These guys are setting up their own sound fast, so don't sleep and get to know.

Review: Disco Tech's re-edit label DiscoDat has earned itself a strong reputation due to its relentless stream of high quality reworks. Here, on the Metropolis EP, they look towards Fritz Lang for some inspiration, but beyond the titles and cover, the mysterious Rare Cuts stick to '70s grooves. There are four tracks to immerse yourself in, with our favourites being the smooth and jazzy soul ballad "Sweetest Pain" and the suspended tension of tight and funky space jam "Get It Up".

Crown Heights Affair also get two hip swaying brassy tracks featured here, rounding off the euphoric party vibes in style.

Played by: Jamie George
Review: It's been a rapid rise for Paleman, conquering Swamp 81 in a short space of time and getting snapped up for remixes by all manner of respected entities, and here Calum Lee kicks up the dust on 81 with the anthemic parp of "Beezeldub". With those plastic horn blasts calling out, any dance worth its salt is going to lose its proverbials, and that's before the stripped and weighty core of the track kicks in. It's a cut perfectly toned and buffed for maximum club response, and it sits in a neat contrast to the more esoteric fare of "Newun". Where the lead track demands attention from the off, this second jam snakes in with a tricky rhythm and plenty of oddball, dubby effects for a more subtle and largely percussive effect.

First up, a bubbling take on EMF's 1990 top 10 smasher "Unbelievable". Instant sing-along with added swing, it will appeal to those who can remember it, and those lucky to be young enough not to. "Spaceman" thrusts us to 1996 with Babylon Zoo's pitched vocal classic. Lolloping along with a quirky off-beat garage bass, it will indeed shoot your floor into cosmoses unknown.

Review: Legendary label V Recordings has crashed straight into the festive season in a big way with this blistering release from Digital, Spirit and Response. Three massive names, two huge tunes. Where to start? "Garrison Law" is a brutal tech-step rampage through a rocking, doomy bassline and clockwork percussion. More than a touch influenced by the old school, it's heavy enough to satisfy the toughest dancefloors. "Different Style" plays with an amazing, spacious break, engineered to spin continuously on the surface of that deep, syrupy sub while the rest of the tune's components work around it. This is some seriously intelligent business going down here.

Review: Ultra Bass is a label that has been gaining steady ground with its UKF-flecked bass-house bangers. Here David Eliza adopts the well-rounded soulful tones of vocalist Jael for the synth washed break-step jam "Amazin'" and the deeper, housier "The Ride". Standout remixes here include Rare Candy's sumptuous poolside rerub of the latter and Tommy Mc's deliciously dirty basement garage rework of the former.

Review: For his latest release, Lord Funk shifts his amorous intentions from his hometown Paris towards the slightly less glamourous London. Judging by the soft focus affection all over these retro funk tracks he's definitely smitten with the capital, but the sound is firmly rooted in early '80s America. Highlights include the stark electro-disco of "It Turn Me On", the shimmering silk sheet digi-funk workout "Piccadilly Circus" and The Odyssey-esque dry-ice grind of "London Town".

Review: UK beat maverick Mr Dubz touches down once again on the Project Allout imprint with four new slices of penetrating speed garage. "Losing It", as the name suggests, is a nutty blend of shuffling percussion and raucous, twisted basslines, while "Sekkle" is tough little grime monster for the head-nodders. "Bwoi Fi Dead" is another heavy half-time monster complete with all sorts of dread vocal shops, while "Ready Fi War" takes us back to the early-to-mid noughties when grime and hard-hitting wobble-step were being mashed up left, right and centre.

Howson's Groove debuted on the Chasing Unicorns label earlier this year and this second release, a garage-laced, bass-heavy EP of moody, stepping house tracks comes fitted with a darker Dosage remix of the spritely title-track. The EP's final track, "One", straddles the divide between both attitudes with grimy melodies offset by summery vocals.

Review: Here on Editorial's latest compilation, Waxed: 9, the BPMs are typically low. Nothing wrong with that of course, and Matt Hughes begins things nicely with some dreamy and soft chilled disco on the filtered instrumental "Star System", next up "Girls, Girls, Girls" is probably the perkiest EP track here with a jagged electro funk bassline, taught guitar and string stabs, with its shimmering analogue synths, "Get It Right" is like the sound of a magic carpet night flight over ancient Arabia or something, and finally "Hypnotic Groove" is the token houser - all slow thump and piano loops.

Peter O, meanwhile, produces a beguiling slice of warped, palm tree synth-pop and I Said No serve up some eccentric soul-pop vibes.

"Phenomenal Funk" = phenomenally funky. More please daddio.

Review: Re-edit don Rayko still seems to be able to pull gems out of the bag at an alarming rate. Here he's done it again with a selection 'cheeky' edits, some more obvious than others. "Can't Get Enough" is made for those in love with the glistening dry ice electronics of mid-80s soul, Linn drum breaks and all. "Rock My World" is a re-work of Wacko Jacko's opinion-dividing 2001 comeback single, "Step Out Of My Dreams" is killer West End-style electro-disco and finally "Touch Me" sees Cathy Dennis' late '80s pop tune reduced to a ferociously funky guitar and cowbell workout.

Epsilon Girls - (5:49) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: If it's sophisticated deep house you're after, Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings usually delivers the goods. This latest missive is no exception. It comes from Australian producer Andy Hart, who has recently collaborated with Francis Inferno Orchestra and Max Graef, dropping 12"s on Melbourne Deepcast and Sleazy Beats Black Ops. Hart's style is deep, tactile and quietly soulful, with toasty pads and hazy melodies riding chunky grooves and warm basslines. The four tracks here stick to this formula, mixing up the styles and influences a little for good measure. So, there's a touch of sleaziness about the old school bump of "Hermano" and the bluesy "Epsilon Girls" (our pick), while the darting "The Same For Me" is an altogether smoother proposition.

Be sure to also check "Bright Night" for a true lesson in jackin', and NY legend DJ Q's remix of the title track - top notch funk stompers!
