Review: Terror Danjah's hotly anticipated Dark Crawler finally arrives in the digital domain! This album is every bit as good as we'd hoped, with the title track taking the producer's grimey strings to a new level. With a 70-strong orchestral swagger behind it, the panicked stabs take on a blockbuster scale which only serves to hype up Riko's rootsy flow to a nail-biting, cliffhanging, car-chasing showdown of a track. The production pyrotechnics are all in full effect throughout the album, a killer 14-track set that features collabs with Champion, Trim and more. One of the year's best.

Review: There are simply no punches being pulled on this new banger from Terror Danjah, where "Dark Crawler" finds him taking the tension of grimey strings to a new level. With a 70-strong orchestral swagger behind it, the panicked stabs take on a blockbuster scale which only serves to hype up Riko's rootsy flow to a nail-biting, cliffhanging, car-chasing showdown of a track. The production pyrotechnics are all in full effect to add to the sonic chaos, leaving "Fruit Punch" sounding positively minimal in comparison. Focusing on Danjah's quirkier side, there's all manner of dextrous programming going on as the fluid drums and loopy noises hop and skip around a pure bass sine.

Review: One of the craftiest knob-twiddlers in grime steps up to Butterz once again with the bombastic pressure of "Let Me Be The One". The production is as razor-sharp as anything Danjah has turned his hands to in recent times, ripping between string-laden sweetness and ugly flurries of drums with dexterity. Ruby Lee Ryder's delivery meanwhile rides at odds with the madness underneath, striking a perfect note of tenderness and vulnerability amidst the madness erupting around her. With an instrumental on the flip for those afraid to embrace their soulful sides, this one looks likely to blow up.

Review: The mighty and ever-talented Terror Danjah steps up with a two-track release on Kode 9's revered Hyperdub imprint. Bringing in the syrupy sweet vocal prowess of Meleka in "You Make Me Feel", vocals caress beats in a sumptuous swathe of sound in the title track. Strong R&B influences are paired with twinkling sweeps, crisp beats, clapping atmospherics and distinctly UK bass orientated soundscape. "Morph2" (feat. DOK) starts with a flurry of dramatic strings and incessant, pattering beats and develops into a low-slung booty rinse out reminiscent of Redlight with chopped up vocal element, pounding bass and squelchy SFX. Highly recommended.

Review: It's grime o'clock at Hyperdub HQ as Terror Danjah and Champion square-off with some midrange baiting badness as cheeky and rude as you would expect from two masters of the art. Danjah's "Glide" actually struts on a peppy 4/4 rhythm, but the synths keep things dutty whilst there are plenty of quirks stitched into the beat. Champion's template on "Bowser's Castle" is broader, with fulsome melodies and a dextrous switch between ring modulating bassline throw downs and glossy synth refrains. In both instances the collaborations between the two bring a more hectic style full of clattering percussion and urgent tempos, clearly fed on the energy of shared studio time.
