Review: For a label that only launched this spring, Nu Wave has taken no prisoners whatsoever. Repping the funkier side of garage and the darker side of deep house, Deckstar and Steve Brooke have established a distinctive sonic signature in a very short space of time. Here we find them tethering their past work with a number of exclusives to form this highly accomplished debut compilation. Ranging from the dark bubble/jazz-chord balance of Deckstar's "Wondering" to Lee Martin's organ-slapping "Wanna Be" via Duo and Chantelle Rowe's blistering vocal stunner "Enough Of Your Love", Nu Wave paint an on-point picture with clarity and originality. Get to know.

My Mind (Pelikann remix) - (4:34) 128 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Barnsley's finest bass producer Brent Kilner has been talking recently about switching to a brand new sound, so the My Mind EP might just be your last chance to catch him killing it before he moves on. If they are his last bass tracks, he's bowing out it style, delivering the raucous and breaky 4x4/jump up hybrid "My Mind" and the deep and moody wobbler "Boomstick". The title track also gets remixed into some doomy dubstep by Pelikan and turned into an otherworldly bass assault by Kiri.

Review: The London crew who've given us the likes of Rudimental, Clean Bandit, Gorgon City and many other acts, Black Butter have been spreading love for four years now. Judging by this sumptuous set, they're not stopping any time soon. Arguably the darkest collection of the series to date, it ranges from sinewy, waspy bass jackers (DVWLX's - "When I'm Alone") to late night tech funk Berlin-style lazer-fests (BNRY's "Something North") via slinky somnambulant hazy techno (Troy Gunner's "Chain Reaction") and twisted, paranoid UKG hybrid (Jaded's "Gully Creeper"). Each one primed for total dancefloor destruction, Black Butter have delivered a premium package right here.

Str8 Jugglin by Trumpet & Badman on Hot Haus Recs Cue Track
All Nite (DJ Q remix) - (6:17) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: It's been exactly a year since DJ Q and DJ Haus last collided in the studio, but boy has it been worth the wait. Three tracks and one remix from Q himself, it's an emphatic celebration of all things house, all things garage and all things party. The title track pays homage to Mr Edwards with sweet and sassy vocal splicing over a str8-up garage 4/4. Further on we get all early 90s with a mischievous compressed organ riff on "Eros. Dance" while "All Nite" looks towards mid 90s UKG when the speed garage blueprint was only just being wire-framed. Q closes the curtains with the darkest jam of the set; LFO-style basslines, a mirroring waspy riff and busted up amens buried deep in the mix.... It represents everything that's great about rave and garage's purest rudiments.

Feel It Out EP by Mella Dee on Manucci's Mistress Cue Track
Raptor (Will Berridge remix) - (7:16) 62 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Spektral
Review: In addition to his work as one half of Mista Men, London via Doncaster producer Ryan Aitchison has been making solo moves under his Mella Dee guise these past few years with appearances in all the right places (think Wolf Music, Shabby Doll and Sccucci Manucci). In fact Mella Dee's featured on two of the latter label's releases so it's little surprise to find the producer popping up on the affiliated Manucci's Mistress operation. The Feel It Out EP sits snugly between house, techno and bass music with the lead cut featuring a rather vicious sub bass line and some superb vocal edits, whilst "Raptor" opts for a moodier UKG meets snapping techno flex. Do check the smudged out bass refix from Will Berridge too.

from $1.49
Review: Bear Fresh have been pushing their more deep house-influenced side of late, but now they're revisiting their more urban-orientated "City" series to redress the balance. This second volume keeps the vibes going with nine killer tracks, highlights of which include the wobble-heavy stepper "Crazy Hype" by Crown Duels & Resonate, the apocalyptic 4x4 meanness of "Crater Face" by Pelikan, the tremor-inducing low end of future-laser-house belter, "Olisha's Call" by Scullious & One Over and, the frankly nuts, military bombardment of "Full Tilt" by Kiri & Nab.

from $1.49
Review: Brighton bass evangelists 877 have the likes of GoldFFinch and My Nu Leng amongst their roster and can now boast the addition of the hotly tipped Distro too. Featuring the moody garage-flecked "Pinnacle" and the deep, wobble-heavy 4x4 of the title track, Flava D also remixes the latter into end-of-the-world speed garage. However, it's the thrilling collision of Bristolian heroes Distro and My Nu Leng on the big-beat- meets-disco-in-bass-town shenanigans of "Sleepless" that's getting the real hype from the likes of B Traits and Monki right now. On fire!

Just Say No (Arge Numa Crew remix) - (4:28) 133 BPM
from $1.49
Review: According to the blurb provided by Sounds of Sumo, Tapok is a "mysterious new artist". Whoever he or she is, the revivalist two-step garage fare offered up on this debut EP is rather tasty. Opener "Freedom" is particularly potent, with sub-bothering bass and cut-up female vocal samples riding a snappy but punishing two-step rhythm. "Just Say No" is a little sweeter, with jaunty organ keys, a bouncier groove and an early Todd Edwards feel to the production. The 4/4 inclined "Summer Magic" is excellent, too, with humid strings and swirling chords providing a little sun-kissed beauty. The package also contains a superb old skool jungle rub of "Freedom" by Kingsin, and a tropical tinged bruk-up rework of "Just Say No" by the Ange Numa Crew.

All Under One Roof Raving by Jamie xx on Young Turks Cue Track
All Under One Roof Raving - (5:59) 117 BPM
from $1.37
Review: The sampletastic new track from Jamie XX lands in a tongue-in-cheek celebration of all things UK rave orientated, with an understated groove as the backdrop to a wealth of documentary chatter, MC toasts and dancefloor testimonials. Musically, the track deals in delicate steel drum refrains and a twitchy little house beat, but this one is all about the cultural references that will ring true with anyone that grew up exposed to the UK in the mid '90s. As if the point needed hammering home, the sports brand rap at the end of the track will bring a wistful tear to the eye of any former tracksuit-sporters hitting their late twenties.

Played by: Modern Ruin Records
Review: The London-based Modern Ruin Records label arrives with a mission statement to showcase some of the most talented and innovative artists making moves on the juke and footwork scenes around the world, and the label's first EP gets things off to an incredibly strong start. Pawn kicks off with "Do U", a dancefloor destroyer melding footwork textures with punishing D&B-influenced rhythms and bass, while The Renegades' "The Warmup" offers a jazzier number which places deft amen breaks throughout. On the flip, Sideswipe's "Be With U" offers a gospel-influenced, funky take on footwork with its vintage sample, but it's Vorres' "One Of These Old Days" that takes the crown, with delicate 808 rhythms fluttering across more soulful vocals. Essential stuff from a label to watch.

Review: The UK's Billy Kenny makes his debut on the always-on-point, Four40! Kenny is a pure garage wizard, with a sound that could seriously rip up the floor. "Call You Back" features one of those basslines which you can leave on loop for hours, allowing it to seduce you into its incessant rhythm, providing a tune for the late-night hours that you can mix in with just about anything. "Work" is similarly funky and loaded with bone-shaking low-end, except this time Mr.Kenny is in an even nastier mood. Fire!

Review: In the wake of all this grime business blowing up at the moment, it seems an apt time be delving into this compilation of early Plastician jams from a time before Mr Hawtin forced him to change his name. Coming at the emergence of dubstep when it was also called sublow or sometimes just grime, it's a thrilling reminder of the possibilities that were opening up in gritty urban electronic music at the time. With a primal approach and that icy minimalism that made the early material so exciting, there's not a duff moment in earshot across the whopping 21 tracks included here, and they've all been remastered for maximum contemporary impact. What more could a bass lover ask for?

Review: North England's Timbah is back with a vengeance on Tumble Audio, and he means business with this tight new three-tracker! The title track "No Bootlegs" is a neo-grime monster, packed with enough sleaze to blow your speakers out, but "Lemonhead Delight" and "No Tux" are no less menacing - power tracks built strictly for floor domination. Sentiment remixes "No Tux" into a deeper, less jagged half-step tune, while Checan transforms "Lemonhead Delight" into an electro-fuelled, UKG stepper - big!

Played by: Lighterman, Soul Intent
Review: Last seen on Exit back in 2012 with the excellent Get Busy drop, Charlie 'Fracture' Fieber returns to the label and shows off his Loving Touch on an EP that really ups the production ante. Centre stage here is undoubtedly the title track which looks to two eras of Chicago for inspiration, skilfully borrowing (officially no less) from Ralph Rosario's Chicago House classic "You Used To Hold Me", and rebooting it to a 160bpm footwork flex which retains some UK bassweight and elements of Fracture's own D&B roots. From here Fracture drops a carnival classic in the making in the shape of Machinedrum favourite "Werk It", collaborates with Sam Binga on the 808 club burner "Grippin' Grain" (apparently conceived during a wicked hangover) and ends on a decidedly rude note with the junglist breaks n bass line business of "Overload".

Review: After dropping the fine tones of long player "Carrier" back in 2011, Sully is back on Keysound with a sizable package of jungle infected wares that give a lot of the break revivalists a run for their money. Working in some of those mystical chime tones favoured by label mates Wen and others, "Solitaire" rolls on a perfectly nailed jungle skank that harks back to the era when the sound didn't need to be aggressive but rather meditative. "Checkmate" makes an interesting job of reducing the breaks down to a bare minimum, while "Charms" gets more lively and playful in its demeanour. Throughout this eight-tracker jungle is the key influence, and yet the ideas flit around with the innocence and wonder of anything considered 'classic' in the genre.

from $1.49
Review: Ahead of their long-awaited debut album Imagin, Dark Sky break a year's release-silence with two awesome slices of uncategorisable bass beauty. "Silent Fall" is as delicate as it is heavy. The vocals (which don't sound too far away from Ninja Tune's Stateless) fall lightly on a punctuated heartbeat bass refrain providing the ultimate balance of weight and spirit. "Odyssey", meanwhile, thunders with a more robust full-bodied wave that's slinks and slaps over a solid tech arrangement with nuances of classic electro... A little like Deetron might after eating a lorry load of burgers. Now let us feast on the album!

Review: Whilst Jack Adams has been producing for a few years under the Mumdance guise, he really seems to have narrowed on a sound lately that's resulted in some truly dynamic club music. After hook-ups with Logos and Tectonic boss Pinch and a superb Twists & Turns mixtape, Mumdance surfaces on the Rinse label with Take Time, a killer release that really sets out the sound he's pushing right now. If you are down with the whole post-Classical Curves grime meets sound design approach that's been bubbling away you will love this, as Mumdance lays down some mind crushing arrangements for Novelist and Spyro to spit lines over. "The Sprawl" is a real highlight and features on the forthcoming mix CD Mumdance has done with Pinch.

Lemonade/Hard by Sophie on Numbers Cue Track
Hard - (2:54) 84 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Proving that a track doesn't have to be lengthy and laborious experience, SOPHIE comes bowling up to Numbers with a second dose of rapid fire neon-lit madness to get heads a-spinning while marking another step towards a full-blown J-pop-meets-electronica zeitgeist. As singular as his approach is, you can hear how the beats powering SOPHIE's tracks reach out to bass weight ravers and teeny boppers alike. "Lemonade" is positively cheeky in its deployment of catchy hooks, garish choruses and occasional bursts of monstrous bass, sounding utterly futuristic in its vision of where chart-minded dance music might well head. "Hard" takes a more obtuse approach that actually seems to distil some of Plaid's starry-eyed melodic wonder and Aphex Twin's Drukqs-era sound design, while the lyrics nod to S&M in the most sinisterly cartoonish way possible. As such, it's a triumphant collision of styles and ideas.

Review: Despite only unveiling themselves to the public in 2010, Black Butter Records have already ascended to some impressive heights with a string of hugely popular bass/UKF releases. This first 'proper' label comp features five names from their roster, remixed by many more. It's literally fizzing and popping with retro-futuristic ideas and sounds: from the B-more drum machine orgy of "Be More (3hrs & Woz mix), to Matta's accelerated electro version of Kidnap Kid's classic "Vehl" and Vince Clarke's elasticated tech-house version of "Lazarus Taxon", to the scuzzy, rave-inflected house of Codec's "What You Need", the thoroughly ominous bass tones of "Hackney Heat" by Racknruin via the eccentric end-of the world beats of "Trick Green" by Hostage.

Review: Martyn's 3024 label returns with an extensive collection of works from rising UK house man Leon Vynehall. Originally debuting on Well Rounded Records' Housing Project sub-label back in 2012 with the Mauve EP, Vynehall has since become one of the UK's most in-demand of the new wave of young house producers, releasing subsequent records for George Fitzgerald's ManMakeMusic and Will Saul's Aus as well as collaborating with blog house survivor A1 Bassline under the Laszlo Dancehall alias. Having debuted on 3024 with last year's Open platter, Vynehall is back with Music For The Uninvited, a seven-track collection of tracks supposedly inspired by rides to school in his mother's car as a child in which he would listen to "mixed hip-hop, funk & electro tapes, Janet Jackson albums, Style Council and Stiff Little Fingers". Whilst there is plenty of the individual house sound Vynehall has developed on offer here ("It's Just (House Of Dupree)" is a certified jam) there are also more tranquil moments to bask in such as "Inside The Deku Tree" and "St Sinclair" which bookend this excellent release.

Review: Re-issue alert! Tuff Wax headmasters gave us this schooling over a year ago. But in case you missed it, they've re-upped this epic remix package of their 2010 smouldering 808 fusion piece "Black Diamond". Each rub takes the original in whole new directions... Rewrote gets lively with crazy vocal pitching and an effortlessly funky swing to the drums, Chrissy Murderbot gets busy on an old school jungle flex, Zubuntu gets clap-happy with an insistent trap jam, Lockah gets emotional with some poignant chord structures and delicate piano tickles, Strict Face gets moody and spacious with sparse drums and iced out old Metalheadz synth styles. Finally Moist Ghost gets ghetto with a loopy, infectious ode to jungle sentimentalities... Both old and new. Over a year old but still sounding wholly future, this is why Tuff Wax are respected in the way they are.

Review: It's refreshing to see Disco Cakes add a little something different into the mix of their mash-ups: bass! So in a bold fusion of old and new we get the likes of Deekline & Hotline Zero's "Pump Up The Volume" which takes M/A/R/R/S' 80s hit and marries it to a fizzy Drop It Like It's Hot hip-hop jam. Slynk also has a stab at "Top Rankin" which takes Althea & Donna's perennial 70s party anthem and successfully welds it to some steely big beat sounds and finally Hotline Zero's remix of "All Gravy" gets all tropical bass on our case.

Bad Kingdom (Robag Wruhme 4/4 edit Mit Xomlopp remix Schwanz-014) - (10:33) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Here's something of a treat for Moderat fans: a stonking new remix of II album favourite "Bad Kingdom" by German veteran DJ Koze. There's much to admire about his bumping, floor-friendly reinterpretation, which retains the original's woozy, hazy vibe - and distinctive vocals - while gently leading it further towards the dancefloor with arms raised skywards. It's melodic, quietly uplifting and decidedly heavy, even if the percussion does shuffle rather than bang. The (virtual) flipside offers another treat in the shape of an extended 11-minute version of Robag Wruhme's swinging, string-laden re-edit of the same track, which first appeared (in shortened form) on January's "Tour Edition" reissue of II.

Review: Scuba's Hotflush label introduce Auden, a producer described simply as "A fresh voice in UK techno" by the label and whose self titled debut EP fits in snugly alongside recent releases from South London Ordnance and Scuba himself. Proceedings commence with "Trip To Fade" a broken yet beatless track that will lend itself to anyone requiring an atmospheric opener for their DJ mixes, whilst "Flex" is the first chance we get to see Auden flex (sorry) his percussive muscles on a dynamic techno production that has some neat delayed effects. The acid dipped "Whispers" showcases Auden's talent for developing a sense of subtle sonic tension, something that is explored further on the mammoth eleven minute closer "Tension".

from $1.49
Review: French fusionista Izem steps up to Gamm with three international boundary-smelting funk gems that star point blank into the future while retaining strong roots to the past. "ITT" is almost techno in its relentlessness as it breaks into a hyper-charged, steppy Afrobeat. With its Latin licks and clipped chants, "Celia" is so Brazilian you can hear the cheers from Rio Maracana Stadium. Finally, "Hajja" is the most retrospective of the three thanks to its electro boogie bass, lavish pianos and sultry French vocal. Three edits made wholly his own, each of these cuts emphatically explains why Izem has enjoyed white hot hype from the Wah Wah crew, Gilles Peterson and Quantic.

Review: This powerhouse duo - a collaboration between none other than Foamo and Rack N Ruin - dropped their killer debut EP last year, and this stonking follow-up fully explores the pair's interest in all things deep and groovy. "Real" features the vocal talents of rising star Yasmin and manages to be both an exotic pop anthem and a sparse, 4/4 bass head-nodder. "Thor" is nasty dark basement fodder, "Athena" is a lithe, tropical acrobat of a tune and "10 Below" is a sinister house-meets-garage monster.

Sufani - (4:29) 126 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Matt Spendlove aka Spatial pushes house music to its outer limits and back for this release on Jimmy Edgar's label. The title track is probably the most conventional arrangement, a stripped back groove that gradually builds to reveal kooky vocals and pulsing blips and bleeps. "Eloptic Energy" sounds like Spendlove has immersed himself in dub reggae. Leaning heavily on the reverb, the arrangement is full of plaintive vocals and underscored by solid beats and snappy percussion. "Sufani" veers towards dubstep, its stepping rhythm and horror stabs recalling a time before the bass-techno alliance. Finally, there's the oddball "Recover". Here, Spendlove deploys a stepping rhythm, but it's the backdrop to a compelling hook that sounds like Jeff Mills' "Changes of Life" on downers.

from $1.49
Review: Keysound continue to act as a platform for bustling new talent within the realm of contemporary grime and dubstep, with their latest album length project coming from 22 year-old production prodigy Wen. Much like recent Keysound LP alumnus E.M.M.A., Wen is a relative newcomer, with just a few 12" releases last year and an appearance on the Keysound compilation This Is How We Roll to his name. Coming through with a debut album so soon is a bold move then, but there's a confidence to Wen's productions demonstrated throughout the twelve tracks on Signals that keeps you coming back for more. Heavy usage of coded samples of dense London slang and live pirate radio throughout help broadcast the album's themes of "power, locale, identity, intent, inequality, sexuality, gender, diversity, energy", whilst Wen can call on some high profile collaborations with label boss Blackdown and grime legend and "original Don Dada" Riko both featuring.

Review: Bristol's shady Apexape and Chris Lorenzo (of Cause & Effect fame) have teamed up, and with their sizzling anthem "Got To Give" appearing in two forms, it's a match made in dancefloor heaven. The 'heavier' mix is just that - with a descending doom-bass riff luring us into the kind of bass-house Hades to which you must surrender. The 'lighter' mix is only slightly softer with bouncy and percussive garage-house intonations abound. 'Listen Up" is perfect mid-set fodder - all skippy beats and lovely deep synth washes. A class act.

from $1.49
Review: Swiftly becoming a household name in UK bass, My Nu Leng have demonstrated nothing but class and creativity since day one. Signing to Black Butter has next-levelled them in the way they deserve, and they've just commissioned three powerful reversions of their material for the summer. UKG don Zed Bias has long since been an advocate of "Masterplan", and here he subverts it into a bashy, thundering blend that makes the original look like a lullaby. Next up, Cause & Effect's Lorenzo gets twisted on "You've Been Gone" by way of a paranoid nagging riff. Finally one of D&B's most respected producers Break takes "Knowing" into the 170 pastures it's always deserved to be in. Enveloping bass, resoundingly loose and organic drums and heaps of space... Just like My Nu Leng themselves, Break has demonstrated class and creativity since day one. What a release!

Review: A leading light in the bass scene, Foamo's residency at The Fat! is legendary, not to mention his slew of killer remixes and his own releases on labels like Skint. Now he returns with a newie, his first for almost a year, on the Rinse label. It's commercial o'clock for our boy Foamo, but the EP is so solidly produced, that it doesn't matter. The overall theme here is slammin' retro house breaks paired with an ascending urban bass riff and soulful female vocals. All infectious the standout is probably the edgier "Without You".

For their latest missive from clubland, these guys have delivered for slices of some serious muscle house with "It Is What It Is" taking the lead - all thumping kicks, early 90s style fuzzy stab loops and soft synth sweeps. Other highlights include the deeper still 6-minute slow burner "Ludes" and the laser jazz techno of "Switch". These guys are totally on top of their game.

Review: The inimitable Hybrid Theory drops quite a number on the Party Like Us imprint, providing what quite possibly some of his freakiest material to date. "Take Me Up" is the bomb here, where HT lashes in a bunch of abrasive snares of a broken house beat that's strictly for the floor - those seductive vocals riding over it are the cherry on the cake. Check "Drege" too, whose low end is about as gnarly as we've heard from the man.

Review: The instantly palatable grime and garage of DJ Q has been satisfying bassline lovers for many a year, not least with his appearances on Local Talk. Now Shollen Quarshie follows up on the mixtape showcase he did for Unknown To The Unknown with a full length album proper, and its packed full of the plush production and catchy hooks you would expect. There's a whiff of techno about the dreamy synths that open the album, not least with the spiralling notes that hover over the trap-rave stylings of "Two Faced", but elsewhere there's a wholesome dose of sugar-coated jungle with the pop vocal stylings of Kassandra and Louise Williams. It's a diverse album with a broad appeal to those who like their beats immediate and colourful, and might just be one of the unlikeliest pop albums of the year.

Review: Steel City producer Deadbeat may not be releasing tunes on labels with such irreverent titles as Off Me Nut Records, but he's still bringing the bass like no other. The "Good 2 To Me EP" is pure 3am, hands-in-the-air fodder and we're not complaining. There are three tracks here covering rolling, ravey, bassline ("Good To Me"), Deep wobble nastiness ("Wheel It Up) and dubby brain-melt 4x4 ("Clear MY Mind"). Also featured is Deadbeat's heavy-as-you-like hyper remix of Killjoy's "Nothing Sweet".

Review: After the storm that he's whipped up as Special Request already, Paul Woolford drops his magnum opus of pirate radio celebration, with this digital release spanning a double-size package that brings in extra remixes and cuts previously only available on vinyl. The album itself spans a wider palette than the singles, from the delicate plucked strains of "Forbidden" to the funky bass licks of "Ride VIP", but by and large this is a widespread celebration of jungle breaks and the nastiness they can inspire. With the production nous a producer such as Woolford can boast, there is simply no resisting the call of the rave from the moment Soul Music starts up. Add remixes from the likes of Anthony Naples, Hieroglyphic Being, Lee Gamble and Anthony Shakir into the mix and you have an unbeatable proposition in the midst of a jungle renaissance.

Review: Stepping up with his second album for 50 Weapons, Addison Groove is once again mining the rhythmic excitement of juke and footwork and working it into his blue-hued melodic headspace. Standout vocal cut '"Just You" is a prime example of the upbeat flavour across the album, while "11th" matches the plush harmonies with moodier switch-ups, and "The Spirit Level" drops the tempo into a house bump that lends itself to the illustrious synth sweeps. Typically though the beats are in that twitchy middle ground between dubstep and footwork, leaving plenty of space for razor-sharp constructions and dazzling edits as best demonstrated on the dynamic acid roll of "Space Apples".

Review: Bolton's Digital Abyss are committed to releasing the 'deepest and dirtiest bass' and with the Dark Matter EP it seems their A&R skills are on fire. This EP compiles output by six different producers, all of whom have a mastered various forms of bass and house. Highlights include the Green-Velvet-goes-4x4 vibes of Aaron Jackson's killer "Stank", Burkie's totally warped garagey take on Robin S' "Show Me Love" and the stark, precise and sinewy UKG of Nick Hannam's "Shapes".

Review: Scrufizzer makes his first appearance on Black Butter, a label dedicated to all things house, bass and dusted with just the right amount of grime. There's an original cut and an extended mix of the title track, both spewing with a greezy London vibe and a catchy house tempo to boot; the mighty Zed Bias transforms the tune into a more mystical, chopped-up, two-step lick, whilst Marshall F goes for a garage twist backed by a dark and ominous, tech-step bassline. Finally, Patrick Hagenaar gives "Kick It" a progressive, tranced-out re-imagination with some rather bubbling, electrolite low-ends popping off. Recommended!

Bax - (5:33) 134 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: The latest release from the Glaswegian imprint adds a further sheen of excellence in a year where Numbers has really knuckled down and concentrated on a schedule of multi faceted releases. Such has been the demand for Mosca's debut on the Numbers imprint, the London based producer cheekily took to touting advance DJ copies of Do Me Wrong via Facebook. Both tracks here are fully poised for the floor, priming a throwback Bassline / UK G swing dipped in a nowness from Mosca that's been evident on drops for Night Slugs and Fat City. Unusually, it's the B Side that's garnered the most attention, which is odd as "Done Me Wrong" is excellent, reigning in vintage female hollerations over clipping rhythms, swamping basslines and parping synths that pay homage to the classic "RIP Groove". Flipside, the more celebrated "Bax" is a dual assault on your senses, murky sub bass jabbing at your ribs, whilst the sweet cooing vocals whisper sweet nothings in your ears. All this is underpinned by a skipping mid 90s flex heavy on the neon stabs that has warehouse jam written all over it.
