Review: A splendid release here from Macabre Unit on their self-titled imprint as they bring us the first installment of Unit Jams. Opening cut "Emotional" is a grandiose instrumental arrangement with clinking piano keys for added impact and grizzled bass drones below. Progressing through the track and we have smacking snares, a hazy white noise-smothered soundscape and rattling SFX. Alongside this, "Dem Na Ready Remix" sees Macabre Unit adopt a decidedly straighter approach on a production notable for its brooding dubstep aesthetics and bubbling sub bass. "Gats" ends this tidy release from the Macabre Unit camp on a rowdy, shuffling high

Review: Where they find the time to run such a consistently on-point label and come up with so many creative new twists on the sub-frequency heavy style, we don't know. But Macabre Unit have been killing it for many years now. Hot on the heels of last month's debut volume, "Unit Jams Vol 2" strikes even bolder poses. "War Riddim" swaggers with all drama we've come to expect from the trio, "Unit Jam" rumps with an edge grime angularity, "Millennium Falcon" is more a classic electro breakbeat riddim complete with 50 shades of euphoria and "Tooth Grinder" concludes this eclectic selection with an industrial ghetto-tech groove. 10 years deep and still going strong...

Review: This new split single from excellent future-garage label L2S sees grime pioneers Macabre Unit go up against fellow UK producer Rowl, with doubly devastating results. Macabre Unit's "Clockwork" is simply brilliant - a stripped down burner with a crisp, Blawan-esque 2-step drum pattern, deep basslines and a slowly rising four-chord pad sound, all mixed together with huge amounts of tension. Rowl goes for a more murky sound with "Think About You" - a complex and deep banger with a worming bassline thread through dubby atmospheres and crackling drums.
