Review: Given the quality of his dreamy, stargazing synth-wave and nu-disco productions, it was probably only a matter of time before Cosmic Metal Mother ended up on Prins Thomas' Internasjonal label. It's not hard to see why the Norwegian leftfield disco don snapped up "Italian Cowboy". Slow, synth-heavy and almost dizzyingly claustrophobic, it sounds like an experimental take of nu-Balearica. If you liked the looser, distinctly sunnier Windsurf releases on Internasjonal, "Italian Cowboy" should be right up your street. Thomas himself and Stallions provide the obligatory uptempo remixes, the latter delivering a Bobby O-goes-Nu-disco version that simply bristles with masculine intent.

Review: Following a great run of house/dubstep bangers that have seen big love from Skream, Benga, Toddla T, Redlight and more, UK producer Dismantle effortlessly kills it with these two new tracks on Wheel & Deal. "Computation" is a pacey, upfront bass classic in the making, with retro synth shots riding a Dutch-style beat, while "Word Dance" carries on in the same vein with some slowly rising, pitch-shifted vocals over a Buraka Som Sistema-style beat. Anyone feeling Crookers latest Dr.Gonzo output will definitely want to get hold of this pronto.

Review: Encapsulated carnage from the Gangoon Dubz head honcho as he steps up to the controls at Wheel & Deal. As the title suggests, "Destroy" is a bonafide head twister that wallops away on a dancehall rhythm, weaving and bobbing with sprightly high-end squeals and sneezes. Further on in the release we find the long-awaited VIP mix of "Computation". With more 8-bit blasts than a ZX Spectrum orgy, this doesn't let up for one second. Best used as a gear-shift in a dubstep set, or played deep in the mix of something more eclectic and tropical, both cuts on offer here kick royal booty. Get destructive!

Review: Shy FX's Digital Soundboy returns with the latest offering from Dismantle, four tracks of some of the hardest hitting UKF rhythms we've heard for quite some time. "Warp" revolves around some tweaked out bleeps and rolling snares, while "More Funk" is built around serrated 8-bit sounds and chopped up vocals which are uncompromising in their delivery. "Dots" is probably the most restrained cut, a surprisingly melodic and minimal take on UK Funky, as ping pong synths go up against rushes of warm pads. "Witch" however is our pick - a lean, dark bass heavy roller with clattering percussion which shows a mature side to the producer which serves him well.
