Review: A veritable homecoming for Killawatt, whose breakthrough release came out on Wheel & Deal. After a few dark dalliances with Boka, New Moon and Box Clever, he's returned to N-Type's roost with three mean missions that will tickle many a bass monkey's tastebuds. Lead track "71" is as brooding as it gets; we're talking total sonic fog with an invigorating aftertaste of impending dread. "Rolling Dunes" adds a splash of light thanks to almost eastern-informed synth sounds and tricky drum patterns. As for the finale "Topio"? Let's just say if we had our way, he'd change his name to KillaWHAT? Deadly.

Review: If you like your beats bare and your riddims stripped back then look no further than Killawatt who delivers this with the utmost finesse and precision ion this two track EP. Using space is something he excels at in the ominous oppressiveness of "Muggy", with its rattling beats, grinding bass and pervasive sense of unease. "Anguished Light", too, builds from a sparse and absent intro, into a hypnotic, beat-driven main part with snapping snares, muffled SFX and echoing anguish.

Review: Distortion, tension and deep dubby bass fill the cavernous depths of "Press On". Fuzzy and filthy, Matt Watt aka Killawatt pushes his dark technical beats to new levels with unnerving precision. Sparse techno influences and deep, minimal beats build to create a seriously dark piece of work. "Tantra" cuts deep once again, echoing and reverberating with serious dub pressure and intricate sample choices. Snaking and writhing around heavily distorted claps with instant head-nodding appeal, this Tibetan-influenced banger adds weight to his already sterling repertoire, owing much to his serious abilities as a DJ. Stark but laden with texture, barren but heavy with suggestion, this is dark stuff.

Review: The much heralded Blackbox label keep up the pressure with another sterling release on their Limited XXX offshoot label. Fresh from his recent outing on N-Type's Wheel & Deal imprint, young upstart Killawatt does the honours on "Sidewinder" and lays down a funky dubstep number with tribal percussive hits and dark stabs. Ipman's reworking on the flip brings the strings to the fore as he introduces a junglist vibe with rolling amens breaks, hectic edits and driving subs, switching things up on a 140 tip.
