Review: Bang! There'd been hushed tones of this opus for well over a year, and at a whopping 29 tracks, it's been well worth the wait. Showcasing their widest repertoire, within the first trio of tracks we're already treated to Latino swing breaks, new jungle jiggery and dramatic dubstep. This wide-eared vibe embracement runs throughout consistently; "Hey Mr DJ" rattles a few electro-hop cages, "Countdown" is quintessential booty-bass heaven complete with delectable UK hip-hop rhymage, while "You Can Be My Night" shoots us up to planet D&B on a floaty carpet of rave heritage. A solid calling card to every party in town, it's time to get bouncing...

Review: Two heart-warming jungle-tastic dollops of loveliness here from the Jungle Cakes label. Deekline and Ed Solo are the sumptuous cooks of these two delights and what a treat they are. First up is "Bad Boys" with the iconic vocal hook "Bad boys, bad boys, what you gonna do, what you gonna do when they come for you?" and insistent, pattering drums which are paired with jungle sirens and weighty bass beneath. Accompanying this is the equally as fun "You Can Be My Night" which continues the madness with massive builds, plenty of bass stabs with tearing drums and oodles of dancefloor potential.

Review: Breakbeat warriors Deekline and Ed Solo team up again, and this time they've gone for it. Not content with producing some of the nastiest, wobbliest breakbeat around, they've decided to turn their hand to drum & bass and another release on Jungle Cakes. Lead cut "King Of The Bong O" is a cheeky exercise in bootleg jump-up buffoonery - the sort of tune that boasts a grin a mile wide and a happy dancefloor to match. Flip "Stickybuds Guaranteed" opts for a slightly more old skool jungle approach, mashing up skankin' MC and familiar pop vocals. It goes without saying that both tunes feature stupidly heavy basslines.

Review: Taken from Deekline and Ed Solo's forthcoming Bounce 'n' Shake album, "Paella" gets a through going over from newcomers Dodge & Fuski, who give it a slap-in-the-face dubstep remake with some vicious attacking wobbles, and stripper who adds an electro-breaks flavour to the original. There's also a vocal version entitled "Gloria" which benefits hugely from the canny tones of Christina Nicola, while Hip Hop don Million Dollar Dan spits hyped verses over an upfront D&B version.
1.03Gb of samples between 110-170bpm recorded at 24bit resolution including bass loops, drum loops, synth loops as well as individual one shot samples for producers of dnb, breakbeat, dubstep and nufunk
If you've ever wanted your bass music productions to have the power, pace and ball-breaking intensity of those of Deekline and Ed Solo, this sample pack could be right up your alley. Featuring a mix of basslines, synth stabs, breaks, loops, percussion hits and warped noises, it ticks all the boxes for those making ear-splitting wobblers. Pleasingly, it also features a range of ragga-inspired shouts and vocal lines from one of the duo's regular collaborators, Rubi Dan. There are hundreds of samples and Rex2 files in all, every single one presented in 24-bit quality. It should certainly be more than enough to release your inner monster.

Review: Two legends of the UK bass and breaks scene, Deekline and Ed Solo, team up with a legend of Miami booty bass on this new collaboration on Rat. DJ Assualt delivers the freaky sex rhymes on "Gimme", letting his flow sit over a chunky, speaker-rattling classic breaks beat from the Brits. Swedish electro outfit Audio Stalkers turn in a heavy tech makeover, while Brighton turntablist don JFB gets his scratch on over a jittery dubsteppin' backing on the remix front. A great meeting of minds and styles all round.

Review: Taken from their jam-packed, juicy fruit debut LP Bounce N Shake, "Number 1 Champion" sees Deekline and Solo riding bareback on a classic 90s garage vibe while Million Dan, Kidd Money and MC Flispide go loco on the mic. Chanting in chorus while taking their own bars very seriously indeed, the collective conjure up toxic levels of energy. Remix-wise Keith and Fixx up the ante for a traditional tear-out breakbeat remix and Smookie Illson polishes up the synth hook before dropping into a devastating 4/4 bass romp.

Review: Awwww, ain't this sweet! Afro Whitey wants us to come and stay the night. We haven't had a sleepover in years! Let's hope there's going to be a midnight feast. How cool would that be? Oh wait, you mean he's talking about sexy stuff? Awkward! While we're not attracted to Afro in that way, we do love this great hook up with bass barons Deekline & Ed Solo. With a sing-along chorus and hooky synths a-go-go, this is a fine merger between the US diirty south and the UK south coast. There's remix styles for everyone here, too; breaks (courtesy of US breaker Dustin Hulton), house and dubstep. Shucks, this is so catchy there's a radio edit too. Don't sleep(over) on this!

Review: Getting Million Dan to spit lyrical over your track is the ultimate go-faster stripes. Dancefloor hype is pretty much guaranteed with his instantly distinctive dulcets. Mind you, dancefloor hype is pretty much guaranteed with any Deekline & Ed Solo track. And having spent most this year making rather cheeky nu funk bootlegs, they've flipped the switch with this wonderfully upbeat roller. With equal measures of rave and skank, this is quintessential breakbeat. Fans of four/four should opt for DJ Icon & Ground Control's version, ghetto-minded booty shakers should head for RacknRuin's mix while the dubstep crew should aim for Revolvr's evil half-step mix. No one's getting left out on this one. It's time to reload!

Review: Finally, a bubbly late 90s bassline/UKG flavoured dedication to Richard Whitely, the spiritual host of Channel 4's Countdown. Wait, what? This isn't a special dedication to a revered TV hero? Oh, you say it's a block-rocking, mic-munching party joint with a So Solid style spitfire rap? Actually that sounds like a much better reason to write a tune. Especially when it comes with two exceptional remixes and two instrumentals. The two-step take is authentically sharp but if you're looking for something all the more skank-worthy, head for Atomic's sprightly fun fare vibe. Exceedingly cheeky. Richard who?

Review: Trading big bars over even bigger beats, the night New Jam hooked up with Deekline & Ed Solo there were tremors in every studio of the land...A mighty booty-rap-bouncer, this was always guaranteed to raise a roof or seven. Now available in more remixed forms, the mysterious Tomlinson applies two different methodologies: the Bass remix is a swashbuckling breakbeat version with added steppy depths while the dubstep remix puts tonnes more emphasis on the half step, twisting and tearing up the subs along the way. Worthwhile reversions, these need your attention.
