from $1.49
Played by: Majora, Archive
Review: Here we have a brand-spanking new Bass Clinique affair by debutant Archive. "Make It Rain" is a half-step monster with some abrasively high levels of mutant bass - also featuring the vocal talents of MC Shantie - while "Felt Nothing" combines the harder edge of dubstep together with a techno flair in its percussion. There's yet more bass filth on "Through The Speaker", and Doctor Jeep transforms "Felt Nothing" into a true tech-house burner complete with deadly low-end. Top stuff.

Review: Birmingham's James Black may have done a runner to Australia but at least under his artist name, Arctic, he delivers a subtle a nod to his home country's current climate. Here he delivers four slammers (and a VIP mix) of prime bass music including the 4 x 4 rattler "Takin It Back", the psychedelic mayhem of the skippy garage rave of the title track and the fizzy, 8-bit wobble-fountain of "Inside (Arctic mix)".

Review: Sunday Roast - one of Reading's most prolific tech-house producers - comes through on his home label Soulserious with a new four-tracker to reign in the new year! The title track "Park Up" is a bass-heavy 4/4 mutant complete with seductive vocals and a swinging set of percussion. This one's for the Saturday night crew and all of the cuts are sure to rock just about any dancefloor from here to Scotland. Oh, and be sure to check out "Climatize" for some serious low-end meditation - bassline!

Review: Pow! Mumdance and Novelist finally unleash two critical slammers that have been doing the rounds for a while now. Mumdance's production dynamic is stark, minimal and drenched in all manner of unique sound design - the perfect bed for Novelist's melodic lyrical bounces as he flexes a complex yarn of money, moods and mindsets. With instrumentals thrown in for good measure, this will suit all bass selector styles.

Whoa - (3:26) 125 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The commercially acclaimed Bill & Will finally drop their "Control The Night" monster on a tight three-tracker for the Stripes label. The main tune is a wobbled-out house number sitting somewhere between tech-house, breaks and dubstep. "Lighter" is a little smoother around the edges but nonetheless abrasive on the dancefloor, but it's "Whoa" which makes the limelight thanks to it bumpy basslines, broken arrangement and absolutely hummable rhythm. Cop 'em!

Played by: Cloaka, Archive, Wolf
Review: Carlos Juarez aka Wolf comes through on Heretic imprint with a heavy-loaded remix EP. "No Love", as the name aptly suggests, is a bass-ridden broken house number for the peak time hours, while "The Truth" is almost an ode to the Noisia D&B spectrum thanks to its breaks and wildly mutated bassline. The remixes come from Cloaka, who transforms "The Truth" into a more stepping version of the original, whereas Beaka goes all broken and dubby on his cut of "No Love", while Wallwork is joined by RZR and Ltd Colours on his own lil' ode to DMZ for another revamp of the same tune.

Review: Sound Pellegrino's SND PE compilations to date have each offered unique windows on the world of futuristic club music. The label's fourth installment comes under the sub-title Melodic Mechanisms, and as the name suggests, it's a collection of bright club tunes with intricate structures at play under the hood. Doline's "Karidja" kicks off with a track indebted to the history of trance music, while Her Records co-founder Sudanim comes through with a Jersey Club-influenced banger in the form of "Seydou". Other highlights - of which there are many - include Chilly Gonzales and P. Morris collaborating on the hip hop slow jam "Late Visitor" and the cut-up funk of Moleskin's "Imagine".

Review: Dust off your Reebok Classics and prepare to get them dirtier than ever before: Bass enthusiasts Slime have recruited 10 of their favourite garage-minded artists to create a future-focused document that details the genre's roots, relevance, consistent presence and continuous evolution. From the bubble-bass hook of Sleezy's "Wait" to the spliced, diced vocal chops and clattering two-steps of Bad Habit's "Trying Times" via the much darker, almost acid house vibe of Jonah's 4/4 bass juggernaut "Hazmat", this collection neatly joins the dots between post dubstep bass music, dark house and garage with a vision that will still sound sharp in years to come. Welcome to the future.

Review: The vocal sample from Tuff Culture's "Africa" will be familiar to any Chemical Brothers fans out there who know the track "It Began In Afrika" (originally sampled from Jim Ingram's "Drumbeat"). The lead cut here is a great tune which combines baile funk with splashes of dubstep and skipping house. "Bye Your Side" is the standout garage track on this EP, while "You & Me" and "Touched VIP" are deep, bass driven and flecked with flashes of cooling chords.

Review: Label regular Killjoy teams up with Lenkemz for a new track and selection of remixes on the incorrigible Tumble Audio. The original mix of "Wesley Snipes" features the grimey vocal talent Slick Don on the mic, and you also get an instrumental to tool up into your DJ set. Majora steps up for a funky house remix compete with gargling bassline and a whole artillery of choppy percussion shots, whereas Spooky goes in with some killer half-step vibes reminiscent of something on Deep Medi or played by Mala or Coki, for that matter. Check it - essential doesn't even cover it.

from $1.49
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: We last heard from this New Yorker back in June, collaborating with MDME, now he's got round to rustling up a new solo release in the form of these three tracks, all of which dwell firmly on the dark side. "Angel" kicks things off with some brainmelting tech-hop (remixed into some brilliantly evil deep dubstep by Archive), "Control" samples Hot Streak's breakdance classic "Body Work" and welds it to some sinister tribal beats (remixed into some peak time wobbly bassline by Flava D) and "Grim Reaper" rounds things up with a relentless carnival-fuelled assault.

Review: Tumble Audio has been providing us with seriously killer bass music for a few years now, and here they celebrate reaching their tenth release by recruiting Roadman Joel to curate a selection of the kind of seriously heavy tunes you might expect to hear at one of their many label nights. There's a whopping 18 tracks on here covering a wide spectrum of British urban dance music, including Majora's ridiculously amazing tribal UKF monster "T&C's", A Motion's ghetto 2-step hybrid "Back In Your Love" and Sentiment's wobble-heavy tropical jam, "Change You".

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.

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!

Review: All-round bass legend Zed Bias touches down on Black Butter with a hot new single backed by a rather killer selection of remixes. Title track "Shizam" features the vocals of Stylo G and Scruffizer, and it's a purely grimed-out affair from start to finish, with a heavy touch of percussive action. Among the three remixes, grime legend Plastician makes a rare appearance with a reinterpretation that takes us back to FWD's early days - that bassline is a true slasher in every sense of the word.

Review: Just recently, Midlands bass duo Hybrid Theory dropped their anthemic "That's What It Is". Now they're keeping the heat on with a left hook of a follow-up EP of remixes. There are four interpretations here - a grimy garage growler by Flava D, Kissy Sell Out delivers a dirty house grinder laced with a techy fizz and Grime wraps things up with a deep and low urban snarler.

Review: Sounds Of Sumo is fast becoming a prized name within the bass music spectrum, and it's thanks to the label's ability to find new and exciting producers from all over the globe. Majora, a newcomer with just a string of releases to his name, drops two hot new floor-nfillers backed by a even more scorching selection of remixers. "Exactly" and "Don't Watch" are both at the crossroads between house and bass, where Majora proceeds to deliver a slap-funk 4/4 groove over gnarly percussion shots. Over to the remixes, Flava D, Tanka and Boean all have a go at "Exactly", the former of whom gives us the standout, a gnarly, shuffling garage tune for the peak-time hours.

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: Rising Leeds producer Joedan has announced that this is the last we'll hear of him until sometime in 2015, when big things are expected upon his return. In the meantime we have The Drop EP to keep us occupied so that's good news for bass lovers everywhere. There are four sizzlers here that cover wobbly 4x4 on the title track, sultry minimal house on "Kind Of Grooves", dreamy space garage with extra bounce on "Crooked" and seductively deep UKF on "Dial Tones". That's all the bass we need for Christmas!

Review: After a run of very successful vinyl-only releases, Night Slugs-endorsed ELDNCT goes digital and bundles label boss Deamonds' successes so far in one stark, robust, genre-melting package. From the sharp, turbo-tempo footwork tech of "Air Max 97" to the satirical shut down of try-hard vibe-chasers "Nu Skool Deep House Sample Pack" via the Bedingfield-nodding "Through", each of the eight tracks on show here represent Deamonds creativity and understanding of the dancefloor with raw, visceral style. Get up to speed.

from $1.49
Review: Allmostt continues his nomadic flex with a new EP for the 877 label. His music can only be described as a hybrid of UK bass and funky tech house a-la Claude Von Stroke, and this latest four-tracker might well be some of his most refined work. "Push" would work on any floor and in any kind of set, whether techno or dubstep, but our favourite cut has to be "Obessive Compulsive" for its choppy percussion twists and snappy vocals - the kinda banger Boddika would deliver in a set. Be sure to also check "Neurotic" for its '90s vibes thanks to those prophetic vocals...and those kick drums!

Review: 2nd Drop is a label that exclusively trades in quality; from the peerless 21st century Afro-bass sounds it promotes, to its darkly captivating artwork by Jimmy Turrell. This latest release from Pedestrian and Jasperdrum is no different, with "Origins" being nearly eight minutes of eerie, minimal, shuffle-house punctuated with all kinds of creepy jungle-at-night noises lunging in from all directions. Their hugely popular anthem, "Kalakuta" also reappears here, this time full of suspended tension in a sparse slo-mo trap style remix by Alix Perez.

Review: When Peggy Lee slinked around in the 50s to the sultry strains of "Fever", could she ever have imagined that half a century later, people like Romare would be turning her tune into a weed smokin', love makin' slo-mo RnB jam? Unlikely to say the least, but "Your Love (You Give Me Fever") is on the money and respectful, if different to the original's mood. Elsewhere, "Jimi & Faye" is a warped take on blues, "Taste Of Honey" recalls the days of daisy age hip-hop and "Hey Now" is a weary and haunting piano lament.

from $1.49
Review: Back in 2010, Peverelist's Punch Drunk label released the Worth The Weight compilation, a collection of hard to find classics from Bristol's dubstep scene. In the years that have passed, dubstep has mutated, and so has Punch Drunk, with the classic dubstep sound giving way to something equally as likely to feature elements of house, techno and experimental music. It's this direction explored in the Worth The Weight Vol. 2: From The Edge, a 12-track compilation featuring tracks from the city and beyond. While Hodge and Tessela represent swung house and techno hybrids, Bass Clef and Ekoplekz are on hand to provide some strange analogue deviations, while Kahn and Zhou represent the city's Young Echo collective. With Pev himself, Andy Mac and Kowton delivering a remix of the classic "Roll With The Punches", this is an essential compilation for anyone with even a passing interest in the past few years of bass-centric UK music.

Review: West coast bass monster and founder of Private Selection Records Dreams steps up to the burgeoning low end imprint Trax Couture with five icy, industrial strength floor-firers. "Dead Zone" is all angular, scratchy and paranoid while "Black Fact" takes us back to the Chicago warehouses to the gritty, sweaty genus. Dig deeper for a skittering, 808-squeezing exercise in future-focused breakbeats ("Esoteric") and a rhythm-heavy tech track ("Terraform") before causing total emotional meltdown with the synth-snapping Devil mix of "Reactor". One to file under "forward thinking".

Review: Having struggled to find his niche during the early part of his career, things started looking up for Randomer when he popped up on Numbers back in 2011 with the bombastic blends of acid house and techno that made up his impressive Real Talk EP. Since then, he's impressively flitted between techno and bass music, and here delivers an all-out techno assault for Clone's occasional Basement Series. There's a real no-nonsese feel to the relentless kick-drums and cut-up vocal samples of "Stupid Things I Do", which comes in "New School" and "Old School" mix formats (the latter including some looser techno breakbeats, and thus being our pick). The EP also includes two formidable percussion workouts, which deliver driving drums and booming basslines.

Review: More low end fighting talk from Lisbon leftfield kings Enchufada. The Clerk ignites the taper with the hypnotic, body-slamming charms of "Cairo" before Robs & Duke get lively with a guitar-twanging tribal stepper "Bring The Fire". With tempo, pace and attitude fully locked from the off, we're sucker-punched by the punctuated percussion of "Helicopter Riddim" and jabbed by other-worldly flute wheezes on "Moombasa" before laying down gracefully for the full count with "Sexton". An enchanting pipe blend over a slo-mo moombahton, if you're going to be knocked out, make sure you're knocked out by the best. Genuinely unique.

Review: Sheffield's Chip Butty label returns with its latest unmissable dose of bass, with label owner Dr Cryptic delivering three tracks alongside another trio of low-end heaters from Dr Oscillator. Brilliantly titled the Dr Who? EP, it sees Dr Oscillator deliver the digidub-flecked bass of "BIG", the frantic sub workout of "Cocaine" and dark, sinister stripped-back sounds of "Mandem". Dr Cryptic's contributions are on the much ruder end of the bass scale, with "I Don't Care", a peak time slice of 4/4 featuring red alert sirens, "Rudebwoi" a vortex of churning bass and killer vocals and "Gibbo" another tune guaranteed to mash up the dance with its frequencies. Essential stuff!

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.

Phive - (5:47) 64 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Untold, Loom
Review: This pair of tracks from Untold represents the first release on a new sub-label of his Hemlock Recordings label, Hemlock Black. Launched to specialise in "futuristic physical club music", the first missive wastes no time in getting down to business with "Doff", a frazzled combination of nightmarish jungle subs and jackhammer rhythmic pulses. "Phive" is a very different beast, pairing plucked strings with a gravity well of bass pressure that seems intent on sucking everything on the dancefloor into its orbit. Without doubt some of the most innovative stuff Untold's made in recent years, and highly recommended.

Review: Alex Banks has endured something of a stop-start career, first hitting record shelves in 2007 under the Munk 777 alias before finally returning - largely as a renowned DJ and remixer - a couple of years back. Here the Brighton producer finally fulfils his early promise with an excellent debut album for Modeselektor's Monkeytown Records. Illuminate sits somewhere between grandiose post-dubstep, sinewy string-laden deep house, jazz-flecked techno, murky glitch-hop and folksy electronica, with grandiose dancefloor moments (the gloriously rushing "Inititate") nestling side by side with woozier, more introspective pieces (the Bonobo-goes-electronic jazz of "Lights"). Immaculately produced and impressively atmospheric throughout, it's the sort of debut album that should propel Banks towards the upper echelons of electronic music.

Review: Always committed to providing a platform to the boundary pushers in the London bassweight continuum, Keysound serves up another choice collection that draws on regular contributors and fresh faces for a range of styles that all hang together neatly under the Keysound banner. Logos provides a little ambient reflection, while label bosses Dusk + Blackdown head into stripped down malice on "Wot Do You Mean?! (Dub)". Wen is even more minimalistic on "It's A Lot", while Facta eschews his usual punchy fare for a lilting melodic piece entitled "Quince". Ballistiq Beats gets a tidy garage re-rub from Sully, and Etch drifts off into dreamlike breakbeat. At every turn this compilation oozes class, showing there's much more to all these artists than straight up sub-busters.

Review: To celebrate Record Store Day last year, Houndstooth got label regular Throwing Snow to create three VIP versions of tracks from his debut album Mosaic. While the LP was a relatively delicate affair at time, these vinyl-only cuts took the original material and brought more of the house, garage, rave and bass influences to the fore with the intention of causing maximum club devastation, and now they've been unleashed on digital. Whether it's the serrated bassline of "Maera VIP", melodic yet full bodied house of "Linguis VIP", Or big room techno sound of "The Tempest VIP", each cut still sounds as big as they did on wax.

Whoas Watchin - (4:57) 60 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Jimmy Edgar's Ultramajic label has really blossomed since launching in earnest in June last year, with the Detroit producer's own output complemented by contributions from the likes of Matrixxman, Danny Daze, Dance System (aka LVIS 1990) and Spatial. Saline is the third in Edgar's ongoing series of conceptual EPs themed around elements, with Saline representing Earth. How this is represented musically is open to interpretation, but Edgar is on fine fettle here, with the bleep-laden electro cut "Burn" the kind of DJ tool that can be used in all sorts of situations. "Walk Show" features the late, great DJ Rashad on vocals and is a few BPMs short of being a Night Slugs Club Constructions cut, whilst "Who's Watchin" is an exercise in how you should use cut up vocals.

Asusu - "Too Much Time Has Passed" (Dresvn remix) - (6:45) 131 BPM

Played by: Paul Mac, Alkalino, Aquarian
Review: This year has been a productive one for the Livity Sound label, if not the trio of producers behind the acclaimed outfit. While new collaborative material from Peverelist, Kowton and Asusu has been thin on the ground, the Livity Sound Remixes series - in which friends from the techno and bass scenes remodel their work - has spawned six essential 12" singles. Here, that material makes it to digital for the first time. It's packed with inspired, floor-friendly interpretations, from the contemporary bleep-and-bass techno of Kassem Mosse and Mix Mup's rework of Kowton's "More Games", to the distorted throb and intense loops of Ghost 202's faintly foreboding version of Peverlist's "Livity".

Hyperion by Roska on Tectonic Cue Track
Only Human - (5:10) 62 BPM
from $1.24
Review: Roska releasing dark music is not a new phenomenon, but this belated return to Tectonic - his first solo material for Pinch's lauded label for three years - is particularly bleak and paranoid. Lead cut "Hyperion" is particularly dark, with dubstep style effects and cymbal hits riding a pulsating and sub-rattling, if stripped down, 120 BPM techno groove. In contrast, the moody but sprightly shuffler "Off" is positively cheery in comparison, with more of the UK funky influence Roska made his name with. The EP's two dominant approaches - funky and techno - come together on closer "Only Human", which fixes a surging, head-cracking electronic bassline to an expertly-programmed broken techno rhythm.
