Review: Darren White aka Dbridge has been carrying out some wicked experiments in what circles have described as the 'grey area' between deconstructed/post Autonomic drum and bass and techno/house. The outsider journeys kind of continue (though don't get too outlandish, rest assured) on VS004, with White teaming up with Metalheadz' Skeptical for "No Discipline" featuring a dark sub bass pulse carrying its dystopian atmosphere; the subtlety works wonders on this effort. Next up the label head honcho teams up with Shogun Audio's Alix Perez on "Through My Eyes" a lush and liquid deep drum and bass journey with a nod to legends of the craft like Marcus Intalex or LTJ Bukem.

from $1.86
Review: Mise En Place Pt. 2 is a showcase for some of the most innovative talents in drum and bass today. Ingredients Records certainly know how to stockpile an enviable portfolio of tracks, and some of these beauties have been on the backburner for a while. First track "Rainy City Music" by Dub Phizix has added lingering, hopeful ambiance to the end of sets for a good long while now, but with a proper release, headphones everywhere can experience its full cinematic glow. Villem's "Splinter In Your Mind" gets a fractious and bassy makeover by the elusive Break, puling switches and swapping rhythms like a mad professor in a thunderstorm. Skeptical, the go-to man for dark, minimal drum and bass provides a VIP version of cold-hearted killer "Blue Eyes", where beautiful samples are stamped and warped by high-pressure bass and intricate percussion, adding faster-moving tension to an already sterling track. Finally dRamatic & dbAudio's icy roller "No Return" is soaked in icy atmospherics, with bass that looms terrifyingly out of the mist. Four incredible tracks from producers punching well above the median.

Review: Tying Skeptical down to one particular genre is like wrestling with a rattle snake... Stupid and dangerous. Ever since his earliest outings on Ingredients and Zimbalam, he's shown a vast breadth creative ability and complexity from smouldering D&B soul to far-out, abyss-deep electronica. Here Tempa give him the keys to the dungeon as we find him in his deepest, darkest dub mindset. "Echo Dub" is a tight weave of knitted percussion, humming subs and eerie manipulated vocal elements. "Chain Reaction", meanwhile, develops on this with a thicker, more ominous sub dynamic that palpitates with liquid rigidity. The only stupid and dangerous thing to do right now is not pick up this.

from $1.86
Review: The Module Eight dust hasn't even begun to settle and Skeptical lets rip with a monolithic four-piece: "Loophole" is a lesson in minimalist momentum where funk can be found in the smallest glitches and elements, "Parallax" is a timeless rattle-and-shaker with a vocal loop peaks and troughs between the precision punctuated steppy beats and "Between The Lines" sees him recruiting one of drum & bass's most distinctive voices as Collette Warren does the jazz thing over a rifle like two-tone bassline. "Just One Kiss" closes the show on a toxic, stark halftime feel for good measure. Impressive from the outset.

Review: Is there ever a time when a Skeptical EP isn't welcome? Bringing the heavyweight depths direct from the North, "Imperial" shows a definite progression in his sound from his more minimal productions. Although space plays a big role in his work even still, there's a dizzying heartbeat of bass waveforms in flux in the title track, stripped bare in "Playground Chat" and used in devastating blows in "Delusions of Grandeur" behind warped effects. Final tune "Instant Reflex" brings back more of his jittery percussion to leave you feeling a bit tweaky.

Review: Last seen loitering with Dub Phizix, Skeptical returns on Klute's Commercial Suicide with two contrasting examples why he's so well respected in D&B. "Statik" bounces with a delicious triplet swing. Purring with a pirate-like skank it's an instant vibe-caster that conjures a similar spirit to "Disco Dodo" many years ago. "Frozen", meanwhile, is a much darker affair with a warped, pummelling vibe and unashamed sense of techno menace. Brutal.

Review: Skeptical & Alix Perez... Contemporary drum & bass production tag-teams really don't get any sharper, deeper or slicker. Following previous collaborations "Elephant Dreams" and "Room 667" with four stark cuts, get ready for a lean, mean adventure: "Without A Trace" grunts with a grainy textured hook that's one of a kind, "Solitude" stutters and wriggles with minimal mystery - each of the key ingredients comprising a beastly groove that defies the sum of its parts. Further into the odyssey we hit the incredible oceanic synth bliss, cosmic soul and jungle tidal waves of "Taurus" and get our creps stuck in the gooey swampy halftime gully soup of "Killa". Crucial.

Room 667 - (4:36) 172 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.86
Review: Belgian producer Alex Perez steps aside from his long-standing association with Shogun Audio to launch his own label, 1985 Records. Described by the man himself as a "platform rooted primarily in the 85 / 170 BPM bracket but also going beyond with no rules applied," the label sets a high bar in the quality stakes with this Elephant Dreams 12" from Perez himself. Taut moody rolling ruffage is the order of the day on the title cut, one of two collaborations with Skeptical, whilst "Had I Known" offers a more hopeful vibe before a dank mood descends on "STNKR". This broken slab of bass science is the highlight here, though the closing brittle jungle of Skeptical co-production "Room 667" isn't far behind!

from $1.86
Review: Ant TC-1"s Dispatch label has been impressing us no end of late and this latest release from Skeptikal and Dub Phizix is no exception. "Silo" tunes into a deeply unnerving, almost neuro style work out, with grueling bassline, trembling hi hats and crunchy drums. Definitely one for the dancefloor! In stark contrast, "The Enemy" lulls you into a false sense of security, with a spaced out atmospheric intro, before dropping into a stripped back but stern Survival style roller. A very strong release all round.

from $1.86
Review: Just when folks started to think it was safe to come blinking out into the streets again, Skeptical returns with an absolute hurter of a minimal battering ram. Working with Instra:mental's Kid Drama for "Versus #1", the percussion becomes so industrial there's a chance it may actually be scaffolding. Combine it with Kid Drama and Consequence's B-side "Versus #2" there's potential for nightmaes next time you go to be (lay off the cheese), while "Versus #1"'s meticulous logic, relentlessly powering through static and dubby undercurrents of hard rolling drums.

The Truth - (5:57)

Review: Expect beat-driven badness here from Skeptikal as he brings us two deep, heads-y rollers on Ant TC-1's Dispatch Recordings. "Fluctuate" is all warping basslines, and razor-sharp snares smacking savagely in a dubbed out soundscape. Sounds reverberate and echo in a disorientating manner, whilst bass sweeps add further murkiness. MC Fats jumps on the mike for "The Truth", which is an insightful cut, with rumbling subs, powerful vocal, grinding bass. A must for the deeper D&B heads.
