Review: UK duo Jack Beats have been making killer floorfillers for some years now, mixing a variety of styles from UK bass to electro-house, rave and dubstep. Now they've rustled up a mini album featuring some oldies-but goodies and top-notch collaborations. The title track features Tempura and is real anthemic stadium-dance fare. The mighty Diplo and Example both appear on the bizarre marching-band-meets-wobble-bassline "War" and Dillon Francis appears on the quirky piano-led "Epidemic". Sounds like Jack Beats will be around for a long time yet!

Review: Cheap Thrills' assault on your aural senses continues apace with the latest and much anticipated double a-side from Jack Beats. A mist of electronic fuzz and dancehall 'badman'isms signals the start of "Revolution" before pitch bent melodies arise and a cheeky Common sample signals the start of a trademark Jack Beats club slayer. A resung vocal from an old Jem 77 rave tune is the core of "Out Of Body" with Jack Beats displaying a real talent for big room house - the pulsating electro bass line is equally infectious and loud.

Review: Heralding a new series of releases for the London bass-loving duo, "Somebody To Love" is guaranteed to thaw out the coldest of heart cockles. Delicately dressed with spell-binding vocal work from Jess Mills, it's got all the right elements; a full strength synth hook, squelchy bass and an undeniable anthem vibe. Elsewhere we get raucous with the underground bassline banger "Just A Beat", we drop the tempo and get glitch-wise with the Chiddy Bang-fronted "About To Get Fresh" and we reach for the lasers and shiver with raw emotion on both "Knock You Down" and "Storm". Complete with instrumentals, this is Jack Beats at their most comprehensive.

Review: Jack Beats is the production brainchild of scratch DJs Beni G (Mixologists) and Plus One (Scratch Perverts). Cheap Thrills seems to be Jack Beats perfect match with EP releases in 2009, 2010 and now again in 2011. This time, they have teamed up with Beta Recordings label owner John B whose extensive discography is nothing short of impressive. "All Night" is a belter, an inescapable track riddled with funk and groove, jackin' basslines and a classic sounding vocal. The release boasts a remix from dubstep don Skream, who lifts the vocal and utilises some burning electro synth stabs. "Elevator Music" brings the EP to a close with rubber rhythms, tightly sprung beats and rapid percussion.
