Review: Ridiculously heavy vibes going on here as emerging Biscuit Factory barons Laxx and Farkas collide for the first time. The title track is hardly dubstep at all, instead it combines a more pounding four-four flavour of old tribal house and techno but with whispers of half step on the ones and threes. If you're looking for a set switcher, this is a fine candidate. "High Roller", meanwhile, is dubstep with a serious swagger. A joint venture with Soap Dodgers, its wobblesome halfstep grunts the message across while a really cute, retro top melody caters for the more tingly side of the dance. Very interesting release.

Review: West London's Soap Dodgers return with another single containing two tracks of their particular blend of cinematic dubstep. Title track "Ill Minded" marries snarling dubstep basslines with melancholic Sci-Fi synths and retro audio samples, while B-side "Contact" is much more sparse and percussive. With regular appearances on Rinse FM and Kiss 100 and hype from the likes of Skream, this EP will keep the pressure on until the genre-defying duo deliver their debut album on Wheel & Deal Records in early 2013.

Review: Fresh out of West London, rising new talent Soap Dodgers come up with a couple of corkers on N-Type's seminal Wheel & Deal imprint. "No 6" is rumbling, weighty journey that channels that classic Hatcha and N-Type sound. Twinkling SFX add melody to an otherwise low-end work out with dragging b-line and bellowing subs. Drum kicks are heavy and loaded and the breakdown is surreal and futuristic. "Drum Roll" naturally lives up to its title, with thudding drum beats, spaced out atmospherics and disorientating bass wobbles adding even more thunderous weight to the piece. Definitely worth checking if you like your bass gnarly!

Review: Out on N-Type's Wheel & Deal imprint, London duo Soap Dodgers build on their recent support from Skream and Youngsta with these two new tracks. The huge, kuduro-rhythmed "Rachel Went South" is perfect for spinners who like to rise up into the 140bpm zone and proves a very solid worker with some scratchy bleeps and thick kicks keeping every second thrilling. On the flip, the equally sharp "Belly" dips low for a polyrhytmic half-step snare but keeps the adrenaline pumping thanks to plenty of itchy 808 hits and addictive acapella shots.

Review: Hotly tipped dubstep outfit Soap Dodgers go in hard with this next release on Wheel & Deal. N Type has certainly picked them out as a new talent to watch and the "Unleashed EP" unveils why. The title track gets things off to a grouchy start with low slung bass, searing subs and bubbling SFX. "Water Landing" continues the eeriness with reverberating beats, smashing snares and muffled vocals, while "Strobes" is a little more outspoken with scintillating synths dancing around recklessly and stabbing beats keeping the pace below. Finally, "Twister" brings things to a moody, murky close. Good stuff.
