MACII Presents: PIECES Session 2
MAC2DIGLP 002
18 Sep 17
Drum And Bass
from $2.03
Played by: DJ Ollie, DJ Hybrid
Review: The don Randall continues to smash things to "Pieces".... 16 tracks of serious rolled-out dark groove soul, it's nothing but heads down grit and uncompromised creativity with every track playing the consummate role of lead player; T>I's soul-shaking hip-twister "All I Do", Benny L's epic groaning yes-fest "Dr No", Vapour's sci-fi drama stepper "Looking Back", Trex's cosmic alien lullaby "Short Story" are just some of the highlights as we roll deep to the very end as Seba blesses the collection with a superlative re-touch on Randall, Goldie and Dego's seminal, scene-shaping bomb from 93 "The R". Randall... Still doin' it after all these years. Essential for all drum & bass heads.

Back In Business/Tink Ya Bad (Remix)

Drum And Bass
from $2.03
Review: They're back! Following a year or so of bookings, Sub Zero and Original Sin's legendary partnership Generation Dub comes correct with two massive back-breaking productions. "Back In Business" says it all. Having been on dubplate with only these guys and Hype to play for several years, its wily riff and chop-burning bass are now available for all of us and the world is better place. "Ya Tink Ya Bad", one of their most revolutionary cuts from 2005, also gets a muscular G Dub 2017 reboot. Massive in every direction.

Pick N' Mix EP (Part 2)
KILLAZ 035PT2DIG
15 Sep 17
Drum And Bass
from $2.03
Review: Time to get those fingers green once again as Leaf fires off the second part to his "Pick N Mix" series. Once again, it's an all-out assault of skanks, rasps and gnarly gurning dynamics that don't just make a crowd dance but electrify it. With its excellent vocal sample and potty bass "Jah" is the definition of 'fire' and DJs should call the local fire brigade before planning on dropping it, "Riddim" groans under the bass pressure before twisting you with an array of percussive elements, "Get Down" shows Leaf at his more stripped back, steppy and crispy, "Tosh" pays homage to the don with a block-snare bashment serenade while "Inner Connected" reminds us of Leaf's more soulful side. Job done... Just like any good pick n' mix, all flavours are covered - and every single one of them is sweet.

Grand Chapter EP
FCY11DB
15 Sep 17
Drum And Bass
from $2.03
Played by: DJ Hybrid
Review: He's back! One of Full Cycle's most high profile new family members returns with his largest EP to date. "The Grand Chapter" leads with an army of happy-slapping breaks and a bassline that taps deep into the Bristol psyche. Elsewhere "Mijushen Style" looks east for inspiration as an oriental intro hurls us face first into a low-end swamp, "Don't Tell Mom" rides bareback on a rolling drumset while a bassline switches in a manner so deviant it should come with an 18 certificate, "Cold Rock Stuff" is a loose-limbed heads-down roller while "Mushrooms" promises to trip you out with its wild drum science and technoid sense of space. Trust us, these jams are so fresh there's no chance of history repeating here (not sorry!)

Drum And Bass
from $2.03
Review: Having delivered their De-Evolution album over the course of three EPs over the last year, New Zealand's gnarliest bass slappers The Upbeats have now asked some of their mates for the all essential revisions. And they haven't gone in half measures as Malux, Rockwell, Annix, Agressor Bunx, Black Sun Empire, Memtrix and Emperor all deliver fresh chapters.... Empire's subversion of the depths of "Prism", the overwhelming emotional rush on Memtrix's take on "Say Go" and BSE's almighty thrashes and bashes on "DOOM" are just three examples of how epic these versions are.

Review: Swiss mandem Qbig & Zenith B have undergone a total re-focus and re-branding to return as QZB. And this heavyweight, multi-flavoured beast is this is their crucial opening statement. Covering more ground than they have in the past, but all with a consistent signature that's both powerful and stark, across the EP we're treated to space-age minimal rollers ("WYGD" and "Valhalla"), ghetto-busting footwork funk ("Apollo"), gritty riff steppery ("Turning Point") and sublime soul-burning halftime ("Revenant") Make no mistakes: the Basel boys have just upped several gears... This should not be slept on.

Drum And Bass
from $2.03
Review: Over the years the Midlands duo, Filthy Habits have built a strong and steady following, predominantly revered for their exciting DJ sets the lads promotions are seeing some love on the floor too and this EP shows why This is some shoe throwing shiz right here. 'Abandoned' is as high octane as they come, packed with jump up signatures it's fast and fun. What more do you want? 'The Calling' is another floor destroyer which slots into the noisy jump up box, with its disgustingly low sub and its dog capturing high hook. It also has so creepy critter like samples that we're more used to hearing in dark dubstep, which brings an interesting twist to the track.

Review: 'Pussyhole' is just as filthy as the track title would suggest, the track consists Q&A style conversation between the dark gutter scrapping bass and the catchy melody that you point your fingers in time to, like some crazed dnb conductor, a very distinct LDD sound to this one. Weird and wonderful just how we like it, the sounds in 'Brain Map' are just so different, it's like a dozen differently pitched tiny springs are uncoiling and pinging all over the dance, and its trippy A.F

Played by: RMS
Review: Souper douper danger: Serum takes the controls for his label's second release with three more killer jams. "Earth Rot" pings and zips with a high frequency metallic rubber ball bassline while "Ripped Open" lives up to its name tears us all a new one as it stabs hard with a Mampi-style sense of focus and drama. Finally "Pulse-S" represents Serum's more leftfield sense of funk with a tin-of-bees bass buzz that wobbles raffishly off the kicks. Yet another soup filled with at least three of your five a day, once again Serum smashes it in his own unique way.

Drum And Bass
from $2.03
Review: Witness the Furniss! Rolling through the year with key cuts and EPs on the likes of Higher Stakes and Cre8, the mysterious murker dents Boylan's exciting new label On Point Audio. Five tunes deep, each one charging with firm focus on the two crucial elements this genre is founded on; the basslines grunt and have steam charging from their nostrils while the drums rattle and slap with a loose roll but firm punch. Highlights include the Rivera-nodding soul-stormer "Thief In The Night" and the canon ball banger "Tune Fa Tune" but the whole EP commands your attention. And does so urgently.

Review: Bcee hits album number four and we have many people to thank for... The result of a crowd-funding mission (in order to save label funds for his artists), this was made under more pressure and motivation than any of his previous LPs put together. And you can really feel this energy and focus from the opening salvo of vocal soul cuts "Surfacing" and "Little Bird". Much deeper into the document we dive for the densely textured jazz flurries of "Had It All" (with Logistics), soulful song strength of the Riya-fronted title track and much darker sounds such as the knee-sweeping "Dead Reckoning" and the piano-slapping jungle homage "Keep Moving On". And these are just a small handful of highlights. Bcee has yet to deliver a bad album but this takes his repertoire, energy and sense of focus to a whole new level.

Drum And Bass
from $2.03
Review: Two and a half years deep into their dark star safari Sub-Liminal continue to shred up the dance with a crack team of heavy bass innovators. Bass riffs galore and aesthetics so unforgiving, every track is tailored for the most underground floor... The worming low-end mashery of Too Greezey's "Modulation", Leaf's oddball drum funk and melting trumpets on "Shoot Off", Warhead's brutal technoid mutations on "A'Gwarn" and Tyrant's absolutely annihilating "Nuclear Bomb" are just four of the 14 high level bangers on display here. There's nothing subliminal about the message on this one: not picking up on this is a criminal offence.

Played by: Till Von Sein, Akio Imai
Review: KiNK's taster for his up and coming album on Running Back is here. We don't know if the title is inspired by the Scottish town that techno larrikins Clouds are from, or the sleepy mining town in Western Australia: it's anyone's guess! The Bulgarian hardware maverick brings us some funked up disco loops, reminiscent of DJ Sneak's Sneaky Trax imprint back in the day. "Perth" is a prime example of his unstoppable knack for good times. Taken from the new Playground LP, the three versions here are dripping with grease. Split between the original, a chord mix (which is brooding and epic) and a funky beat version full of sultry latin percussion: it's all you ever wanted from a single. Perfect house music for techno DJs and techno music for disco DJs.

Cant Hold It EP
HEIST 026
31 Jul 17
Deep House
from $2.03
Review: After an extended hiatus, Detroit Swindle returns to action for the first time since the autumn of 2016. Predictably, they're in fine form throughout. We're particularly enjoying title track "Can't Hold It", a bumping and energy-packed deep house cut smothered in swinging drum fills and what sound like jazz-funk instrumental samples. The warm, summery action continues on "Just Not Norma", a superior chunk of life-affirming disco-house deepness whose beats are pleasingly jazzy and dexterous. Arguably best of all, though, is the more heavily electronic "Tamarindus Hollandicus", where new age melodies and fizzing electronics weave in and out of a restless synth bassline and Italo-disco style percussion. Willie Burns' remix, a fusion of scattergun-techno attitude, proto house drum delays and swirling synths, is also superb.

Techno
from $2.03
Review: Matt Edwards marked the 100th release in Rekids earlier this year with a release that featured "Feel the Same", and now he is putting out the debut Radio Slave album using the same title. It's a real mixed bag; "2nd Home" starts with gentle ambience and the dreamy breaks of "Forana", before the UK producer changes pace and drops the album version of the title track in all its vocal-heavy, driving glory. If its insistent riffs get too much, then there is the low-slung bass-heavy groove of "Trans" and the dubbed out abstractions of "Draw" to keep his audience guessing. Rekids may now be a house music institution, but as "Feel the Same" shows, it doesn't slide into predictability.

Review: Birmingham's Jinx hits hard and fast once again. This time with his debut on the fittingly titled Pure Vibez. Busta weighs in for the opening track; a fully cycled jazz-tinged MC-led tear-up "All Of Nothing". Deeper into the EP we ride for the elastic bass funk steps of "Break It Down", the skank-blasted slammer "Hot Pepper", the filtered cuts and grainy soul of "Love Like This", the all-out squelch bass weirdness of "Fall Out" and the subversive star-lit sub-struck danger jam "Soul Thing". Following previous heavyweight EPs on Hocus Pocus and Ruffneck Ting, Jinx has properly smashed this year. Don't miss out.

Review: Over a year in the making, Southampton's finest Gerra & Stone break their previous "Unbreakable" silence (not sorry) with this immaculate album. A proper body of work, the depth and detail at play here is instant thanks to the alluring ambient intro "Ambivalence" before the duo take us deeper and deeper down the drum & bass rabbit hole. Riddled with touching and gully moments alike, highlights include the lilting piano and breathy textures of "Time Not Wasted", the sunset soul of "On The Outside" and blunt-nosed grit of "When I Fall", the supreme Visionobi-front "Predator" and the melted steel funk of "Blank". 15 tracks deep; this isn't just a debut album, it's a serious statement of intent.

from $2.03
Played by: DJ Hybrid
Review: Ruffneck Ting has been a prominent name in jungle for the over 20 years, starting life as a night in Bristol in 1993 before morphing into a label in recent years. So it's fair to say these guys know good jungle and, if they put out an extra large EP, we should be listening. Standing out as one of the highlights is 'Buju' with it's slow, low sub. We're also feeling 'Bad Boys' which blends tight, rolling amens with weird sci-fi synths and shorts shots of dirty bass, perfect for the dance. The title track 'Untouchable' combines classic claps, and lasers, with more modern effects and a killer bouncing base.

Review: Fresh from flexing the iconic vocals of David Boomah, Dub Shotta bossman (and all-round G in general) Benny Page now locks horns with one of the most distinctive and hype-raising Jamaican MCs in the game $pyda. Wrapping his dancehall damage harmonies to "Gangsta", this is nothing short of an anthem thanks to its sing-along feels, a gut-punching hook and raw energy that will pop any rave into pieces. With its rifle riff, sandpaper harmonics and higher-end tones "Flava" takes us round the back for something a little more illicit and intoxicating. Both absolutely smash the place.

Review: This entire EP is stunning, softly singing to the Shogun signature sound of rolling, liquid tech. Setting the tone for the release we start with 'Empire' and we just love Mr Porter's voice, it's just so effortlessly smooth, it nestles beautifully within this lulling track, gorgeous piano, echoing drips and warm sub. 'Forma' takes us to slightly darker planes, with a creepy manipulation on the vox and a low, slowing moving vortex of a b line. 'Some People' has a melancholy vibe, with classic samples and a deep sub, while 'Who's There' is all about the vocal, and it is just divine, juxtaposed light shimmers and dark twisted tones. Trust us, you need this release in your life.

Deep House
from $2.03
Played by: Akio Imai
Review: The choice of Tony Humphries to mix Running Back's first label compilation is a significant one. Getting his big break in the early '80s as an understudy for the legendary Shep Pettibone's Kiss FM show, Humphries went on to become one of the defining DJs of house music's formative years, with residencies at New Jersey's Club Zanzibar and London's Ministry of Sound. His previous mixes illustrate his continuing ability to bridge dance music's past and present and his new one for Gerd Janson's imprint will mark its fifteenth anniversary. It is a timely reminder of what has made the Frankfurt powerhouse remain on many favourite label lists for over a decade. It's a mix of golden oldies and recent classics alike: from Todd Terje's smash hit from several years ago "Ragysh" and the anthemic "The Voice From Planet Love" by Precious System, through to more recent bombs. Two by Running back alumnus Shan ("Bassline Party"/"Work It") and the legendary Mr G's Motor City ode "Ben & Gerd" (Killin It M Day).

Deep House
from $2.03
Review: The long awaited, self titled debut album from Irish power duo Bicep is the perfect summation of their career to date. Matt McBriar and Andy Ferguson have created a singular and unique album, founded on the blueprint of classic house, techno, electro and Italo disco: but all the time bearing their unique signature. The duo felt that UK institution Ninja Tune was a perfect fit for them and gave them the total freedom to express themselves artistically, describing the label's broad scope that has, in turn, helped them to thrive. They display a strong technicality and a desire to experiment, but still with a melodic touch which runs throughout the entire record. It is this approach to creativity which has allowed Bicep to establish a unique position in the industry, in the face of a crowded global dance stage.

Misses Madame Mademoiselle EP
HEIST 027
11 Sep 17
Deep House
from $2.03
Review: Story has it that a bunch of Amsterdam's current scene heroes had studios in the basement of a hotel opposite the former iconic Trouw nightclub (RIP). One morning, local enfant terrible San Proper happened to cross paths with Nachtbraker (early on a Tuesday morning) and that's how this collaboration of sorts came about. More specifically, San Proper "casually grabbed a microphone.. Nachtbraker pressed record, Dr. Proper got his inner Mick Jagger on, and behold: Misses, madame, mademoiselle was born". Hear the cowboy of minimal house croon over Nachtbraker's funky disco loops on "M.m.m" (feat San Proper's Elegy), while Hamburg's finest Session Victim remix the track next: giving it more dancefloor dynamic. Second original offering "Hamdi" is a hammering disco house joint that will really rock the house, while the remix up next by Bli takes it down a couple of notches, plus a slight Afro touch into something deeper to mood light the early evening.

from $2.03
Review: Got some shoes? Good. Got some hands? Good. Now what we need you to do is use your hands to remove your shoes and throw them directly at Leaf when you see him. Tunes as outrageously dope as these deserve nothing less. "Bumbaclart" is a severe shredder that threatens to leave you skinless, "Wu Style" pays homage to the clan in the fugliest, most toxic way possible, "Rollz" is a space-aged stepper with more tech grease than a rave in a bakery while "Hard To Find" takes the hazy dulcets of Alice Winzar and twists them through the future machine to show you how bleak reality might become if mankind continues being idiots. Shoes off, all off.

Proton Blue
LT 079
15 Sep 17
Deep House
from $2.03
Review: Given that this is Ben Worrall's fourth Crackazat 12" for Local Talk in less than three years, it would be fair to say the project now has a regular home. As with many of his recent tracks, "Proton Blue" looks to classic US garage for inspiration, peppering a bouncy groove with rich organ stabs and jazzy synthesizer melodies. It's accompanied by the alternative "Deep Orbit" version, a more hypnotic and slightly more spacey interpretation that gives greater prominence to the producer's jazzy synthesizer riffs. "Called My Name", meanwhile, is a soulful, jazzy and fluid affair blessed with a hazy vocal and some luscious jazz guitar. The cut's loose and languid jazz-funk influences are explored further on the arguably superior "Meet the Band" remix.

Review: With Tel Aviv duo Red Axes' ode to the sun still running strong; one and a half years after its release: here comes the heavyweight remix package. German wunderkind Konstantin Sibold takes the original into afro rave territory with voodoo percussion and a haunting bassline that will be hard to escape from. Fango from the Italian label Degustibis continues his string of strong remixes as he turns the original into a rough beat version: just drop the melody in the break for maximum dancefloor mayhem. And last but not least the Axes themselves come up with a tropical house version that works any time any place. And thus the sun continues to shine.

Review: We are huge fans of Kenji, he's been producing some real jump up bangers, which still have a sense of musicality to them, which we all know is not a common theme. There's so much to love about 'Get Down' the background high pitched buzz, similar to something 'Tyke' would pull out of his hat is set against a sub which sounds like it is floating and decorated with wizzes and pops, the track is pure twisted magic. 'Al Capone' comes to us courtesy of Kenji & Bou, with a similar floating vibe to the bass accompanied by clicky and bleeping beats, this is another one for the floor.

Disco/Nu-Disco
from $2.03
Review: If you've been to a festival this summer, it's likely that you will have heard "Surrender", the first collaboration between Running Back man Gerd Janson and Black Jukebox curator Shan. A pleasing slab of feel-good disco-house with added carnival percussion, the track's appeal likes as much in the duo's ability to place life-affirming peaks (built around colossal disco samples) in all the right places as the rock solid nature of the production. Basically, it sounds like an anthem and is fast turning into one. There's a similarly old school feel to "Gentle Place", too. The track's analogue bassline and layered, carnival house style percussion is brilliantly off-set by the kind of swirling Balearic chords and eyes-closed vocal samples so familiar from Janson's Talamanca System work with Phillip Lauer and Mark Barrott.

from $2.03
Review: A chilled Brazilian-tinged boogie cut from the recent Joey Negro epic entitled Produced With Love gets transformed into a piano fuelled, peaktime banger by Swedish jazz musician/producer Crackazat. He retains the Latino flavour of the original but 'adds bags of dance floor energy.' Dave Lee has been one of the most prolific producers in dance music over the last three decades and we would highly recommend the album to anyone who considers themselves a fan of proper house, disco or soul music. It features collaborations with such legends as Diane Charlemagne, Linda Clifford and Alex Mills. In addition to remixes of recent heroes of the scene such as Horse Meat Disco and Peven Everett.

Review: Wonkadelic' is just so bouncy, and yeah, you guessed right... its wonky! It will have you jumping around the dance like a snapback wearing kangaroo, with one leg. The track ticks of the trio of LDD staples; weird vox, check, disgustingly low sub, check and of course our favourite, pneumatic drill and tool kit sample pack, big fat check. 'Illusion' is screwface inducing business. It's been doing the rounds this summer, being dropped in neuro and dancefloor sets as well as the usual jump up dances. A pretty standard beat pattern leaves space for the long running, insanely intense body of the track. You can't miss it.

Bad boy re-rub business as always.

Review: This EP draws a lot of influence from the noisy modern day jump up, but it's got a groove to it, making it seem more distinguished and grown up. 'Lose Your mind' is a little dark stepper, its rumbling sub is understated and leaves room for the robotic melody. "No Trouble' has a very distinct LLD feeling to it, as does 'Rizla'. 'Revive' is based around very simple drum pattern and like the other tracks has an open vibe to the soundscape, the main melodic synths here are what makes the track special as they change pitch the odd sound provided a great chance to buss a bass face.

Straight up worries in the dance; drop this and watch the fireworks erupt.

Review: This EP was always gonna be a winner for us, we were already big fans of the original tracks and the VIP's breath new life into them. The music floats in the dark and merky underground world where techy, nuero rollers meet noisey jump up bangers, it's a great place to be. 'Afterlife VIP' starts the EP with twisted basslines, a shuffling drum pattern and awakening risers. 'Let's Play' gets out the jump up classic pneumatic tool kit sample pack, with low drops and an onslaught of pounding drums. 'Smile VIP' is our highlight of this EP, it's itchy to the pointy of skin crawling and the bass deadly. 'Say What' is a high energy stepper, which centers around an uncommon glassy type of noise.

GOMMA 222

Disco/Nu-Disco
from $2.03
Review: Here's something to cheer: the first EP from Dimitri From Paris and DJ Rocca's collaborative Erodiscotique project following the release of last year's superb debut album on BBQ Japan. As usual, their inspirations and musical reference points tend towards the vintage. Opener "One For Frankie", for example, smothers a vintage Chicago house groove with the kind of dreamy, positive and melodious musical flourishes that were a hall mark of Frankie Knuckles best productions, while "Zanzibar" pays tribute to the bustling, percussive, synth-heavy pressure of early '80s NYC and NJ "proto-house" productions. "Don't You Feel The Same", on the other hand, wraps sweet Balearic synth lines around a chunky, "French Touch" style disco-house groove.

Played by: DJ Ollie
Review: My Nu Leng are the guys right now, it doesn't matter what bass genre you reside in, everyone respects them. Since the rumours of the release started circulating it's has been something the dnb family have been looking forward to, and as the tracks started to surface there have been rumblings on the forums that this is one of Shogun's best releases for some time, we'll let you judge that for yourselves. 'The Terrace' see the lads join forces with the hugely talented SpectraSoul and the result is unsurprisingly a tough and techy, half time work of art. Partnering with label boss Friction sees a more dancefloor led direction with a thundering mutated sub at the helm, surrounded by crashing drums and catchy vocal. The lead track 'Portal' is a hard hitting and a complete smasher, with killer drones and well-crafted drum patterns, it's a big one. But our favourite track of the EP has to be 'Senses' for a start Iyamah's voice is stunning, but secondly it's just a perfect balance of soft, melodic blissfulness and hard, aggressive grit.

'Never Over' is very typical floor filling jump up, it is a slower stepper with a squelching bass, scraping pneumatic drills and a tough in check film sample. 'Mumbo Jumbo' and 'Famous Killer' follow a similar format of filthy basslines and a whole heap of lasers, get ready for some screw faces on the floor.
