Gully Halves - (4:08) 170 BPM
from $1.38
Review: Alix Perez on Exit? That's enough to make most D&B aficionados froth at the mouth. Throw in collabs with the equally hot Stray and two of footwork's most demonstrative players and you've got a release so cool it comes with its own beard. "U" is a rifle-like jitter-jam of cuts and chops, all massages together to juke glue. "Sludge", meanwhile, lives up to its name in every way. A funky post-dubstep downbeat strutter, it wonks as hard as it works. The truly unique "Make It Worth", meanwhile, is an eerie stepper that morphs from subtle to stately drama with a Detroit style heaviness and a grime vocal loop. Finally we hit "Gully Halves" which, as the title suggests, is a waspy paranoid bassline on a dark stroppy halfstep. Four incredible future jams from the Shogun superstar... This is next level business.

from $1.49
Played by: Nu Era
Review: With their influences ranging from chart-baiting house music to skippy garage and deeper moods, Nu Era stride forth on their debut single for Four40 as representatives of the West Midlands scene. "Give It All" screams crossover appeal with its canny mix of vocals, strings and chords precision placed for maximum ear-worming, while the "Bass Mix" brings a much ruder underground twist on the track. "Came Into My Life" rides a more electro influenced beat but keeps the cheerful melodic elements and chipmunk vocal slices present and correct, leaving it to "Source" to bring a techno edge to proceedings with its nasty synth line and strict 4/4 jack.

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: 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.

From Coeo's bouncy and vocal track through to Mella Dee's dark and distinctively UK-centric track the label has tried to explore the sheer wealth of production talent on offer at the moment.

Review: Falty DL's Brooklyn-based label Blueberry steps up with a new offering from hitherto unknown producer Luke Warm, whose style of production makes a snug fit with his label boss' own plush broken beat style. "Daydreamin'" snakes through Vibert-style sampling fun and games while keeping a suitably whimsical tone to the track through its choice of chords and harmonies. "Brockley Spears" is a more extrovert breakbeat funk roller, working plenty of old-skool hip hop cuts into the mix and making for a tidy party worker. "Instant Vibe" takes some definite influence from Wagon Christ style synth lines, while the funky groove is certainly not far that peppy brand of Ninja Tune beats. "Party Piece" rounds the EP off with some rude bass dominating the mix of loose and limber drum licks.

Fragile - (3:45)
from $1.38
Review: With a diverse sound established off some fine drops on Critical, Warm Communications and Blu Mar Ten Music, its little surprise that Stray's 2013 Matchsticks bow on Exit proved so damn popular with the D&B heads. A return to Exit is most welcome then, and the four tracks on this Chatterbox EP demonstrate Jonathan Fogel's getting to the point where his productions as Stray are becoming untouchable! "Award Tour" is perhaps the straightest cut here, little to do with the Tribe classic of the same name but a righteous dancefloor stepper in its own right and Stray takes it in some interesting directions from here. "Eazy Boy" is marauding, bass heavy hip hop replete with massacred pitched vocals, whilst the deftly edited, classic jungle vibes of the title track ensure it's possibly the highlight of this release. You can easily visualise D Bridge pulling for the final track "Fragile" so it's little surprise to hear he's already been supporting this release along with the likes of Om Unit and Machine Drum.

Played by: Chaos In The CBD
Review: London bass night and label Church return with their first offering of 2014 and the first original material from resident Apes. Putting into practice the methods learnt on a bunch of remixes for Church, "Two Thousand Six" finds Apes ploughing the kind of weighty, heavily swung techno that is so popular right now, and is complemented well by the warmth and subtlety brought to the table on Chaos In The CDB's subsequent remix. If the main track is all about immediacy and power, then the other Apes original "Cold Love" shows a calmer side to his production palette, and is notable for some orgasmic male vocal sampling. Fellow Churchman Seb Wildblood ends proceedings with a doleful, melodically driven remix of "Cold Love".

Review: Coming through with their third release for Black Butter Records, the My Nu Leng duo drop a monster tune that's been getting some serious attention by the likes of Annie Mac, Cameo and the whole UK radio entourage. Shredded beats and sunken crystal-like synths dominate the equation to form a proper head-turner of a tune, while original badman Fox rides all over the vocals in fine style. Check it...

Review: Oh hello, some fresh Djrum material from Felix Manuel on 2nd Drop here and it's the first of two separate releases from the producer put out this week. Essentially Manuel's first original music since last year's debut album Seven Lies, 2nd Drop are presenting The Miracle and Ode collectively as a third Djrum "suite" for the label following the previously issued Mountains and Watermark 12"s. The Miracle reminds you just how ambitious Manuel can be as a producer with the fifteen minute track spreading its wings across two halves, and moving gracefully between DJ Krush-style hip hop and intricate drum and bass programming.

Played by: Nphonix, ALLMOSTT
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".

from $1.49
Played by: Sorrow, Congi, Congi
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: Pinch's new vessel for the darker side of the dance officially cements its existence with this sturdy compilation that draws on a limited cast of characters for a focused lecture on how to keep things icy and heavy in the splintered dubstep scene. Acre brings industrial tones and jungle breaks to bear in spartan environments, while Ipman channels murky techno and gnarly sound design to vicious and paranoid ends. Batu's offerings follow on neatly from his Dnuos Ytivil appearance and Elmono brings some more colourful elements into oddly moody environments, while Pinch's own efforts find him taking his sound into playfully eerie headspaces that should freak out the dance admirably.

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.

Review: Roska's own Kicks & Snares imprint comes through correct for the umpteenth time thanks to the sounds of badboy beat-maker Alex Parkin. "Nasty Thing" and "ZED" are both bass-heavy, gratuitously funky UK house cuts for the prime time, combining two-step and 4/4 to perfection. Parkin teams up with Lorenzo on "Prove2u", another sickeningly effective floor shaker with some of the gnarliest percussion we've heard this month. It's a scorcher, as per usual from Roska's institution.

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.

from $1.49
Review: Nodding to the resurgence of dark and edgy grime, Rinse snap up this EP from Celestial Trax which makes a more bold interpretation of the icy subtleties of Wen and co. "No More" treads on nervy string stabs and gun shot samples that dart around the mix with that agoraphobic amount of space that typifies the newer strains of the genre. "Wax Forest" moves away from gritty urbanisms towards a more esoteric, electronica influenced soundworld, but without losing the concurrent atmospheric tones from the opening track. "Blockx" meanwhile gets crafty with a snappy rhythm and some tense string notes, while "Sinner" lets a little trap influence loom over the drums, and "Sutekh" settles for the most dank and oppressive of vibes on the whole EP. "A Cross" brings a wry finish to proceedings with an approximation of jungle tropes completely repositioned in the curious world that Celestial Trax inhabits.

Review: Ed Banger veteran Feadz touches down on France's Because Music with a scintillating, rip-roaring debut LP which travels to all possible corners of the bass spectrum. From jittering house productions to sweltering low-end-nastiness, this a real testament to the dancefloor. Tracks like "Metaman", "Stickbuilders" and "Wettex" are truly capable of some serous damage to the chest and we don't even wanna think what happened in the mastering studio when they were being cut. Hold tight, bass crew.

We don't really know how to describe his sound apart from absolutely banging - all three tunes are total winners but the prime cut has to be the title track, which features a jittering, gnarly, oscillating electrolyte bassline penetrating through the mix like a dagger. Check it!

from $1.49
Review: After his successful turn on Maceo Plex's Ellum Audio Danny Daze scores further points with this signing to Jimmy Edgar's Ultramajic imprint, turning out a monstrous peak time club rocker that's equal parts heavy hitting and malicious restraint. The bassline stays firmly in place to keep the brain pinned down while all around it narcotic blasts of synth weirdness whirl in ever increasing displays of ostentatious production, and that's just the title track. "When The Freaks Come Out" is a more measured electro-tinged stalker, while "Beatdown" gets into a more techy 4/4 stomp sure to get fists shaking across the globe.

Review: Croydon crusader Deft continues to flourish in the future beat hinterland with two more startlingly crisp and distinctive jams. "Emeralds" sparkles with diamond-like distinction as deep-seeded harmonies provide the ideal bedrock for a breath-taking arpeggio. "A Little Kiss" shows Deft's darker side as the lolloping beats slur across the rich bass amidst an array of unpredictable FX and processes. Elsewhere we pop and pump to the timeless house groove of "Octavia" and unleash our inner junglist to the footwork fused "Perky". The grass is always greener? Not on Deft's lush lawn it's not.

Played by: Scrimshire
Review: It's been five years since Manchester's Ryan Hunn made his debut under the now familiar Illum Sphere alias. This debut album for scene titans Ninja Tune has been a long time coming. So, is it any good? First and foremost, it's a lot smoother and melodic than his wonkier early work. While there are off-kilter rhythms paired with futuristic electronics (see "It'll Be Over Soon" and string-laden "Ghosts of Then & Now"), these moments largely play second fiddle to woozy, James Blake-ish soundscapes and tactile downtempo moments. It's a curious move, perhaps, but one that suits the album format. Certainly, when he really nails it - such as the distinctly Balearic "One Letter From Death" - it's nothing less than sublime.

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".

from $1.49
Review: Hard-working experimental dubstep types Downliners Sekt are masters of the deep, woozy, claustrophobic groove. This third full length - their first for acclaimed French imprint Infine - is jam-packed with such moments of smoky goodness, all soft-focus rhythms, dubwise chords and long-drawn out pads. It's intoxicating, all right, and evokes hazy memories of sitting in smoke-filled rooms early in the morning, feeling strangely in tune with the bubbling, off-kilter rhythms seeping from the speakers. Highlights are pleasingly plentiful, from the jumpy dreaminess of "This American Life" and vintage Hyperdub deepness of "Eiger Dreams", to the cascading pianos and field recordings of "Junior High" and tough, dancefloor-focused "Once Mercurial".

Review: Emergent London duo, Mounter & Mifi open their Losing Suki account with a telling manifesto for their self styled 'Analog Rave Music' which previously saw a worthy outing the Save You Records imprint. Those partial to a bit of rude garage will delight in the heavy stepper "Temper" where jagged basslines and loose 2 step rhythms clash with jacked up beats and some decidedly strange vocal samples. "Fiercely Pretty" is indeed pretty fierce, and demonstrates Mounter & Mifi know how to craft a bassline that repeatedly jabs away at your gut, whilst "Feel Ha" is perhaps the rudest production here - all jump up drums tumbling over Reese style bass lines.

Review: The mysterious Apexape touches down on his own self-titled label with a palletload of bass, neurofunk and all round floor nastiness. The title track is a grooving, arpeggiated monster with filthy percussion and a monstrous low-end to boot. "Hustle" continues down a similar path of bass doom, whilst "We Set The Law" goes all amen on us and drops a conniving pile of jungle vibes. Ace.

Review: Deep and fresh, if you like your house pumped full of tweaked synths pulled from your wildest dreams, take a second to look at this. Jade Blue and Frequency working together was always going to be insanity squared - place the pair on legendary dance label Black Butter and what you have here is pure, unadulterated fun in a rock solid no-funny-business coating. Vox mixes things down into a washed-out, 5am sunrise vibe on the remix, and finally Jade Blue messes with tape warp and glittering atmosphere in the beautiful single closer "Moving Away". Seriously talented and way up there on everyone's ones-to-watch lists. You'd be a fool to miss out.

from $1.49
Review: Sounds Of Sumo label bosses Kry Wolf return to their home imprint with a bold new sound in the form of Concrete; eschewing their usually lighter take on bass music, the title track is a dark combination of wobble bass and dub atmospherics, held together with some steely techno rhythms which comes across like Objekt's "Cactus", while "Bluffin" combines more abstract beats with ghetto house-inspired vocal samples and dubby stabs. Woz is tapped up to remix the title track, being considerably more sparing with the savage bass and rearranging its rhythms into something altogether more angular; Benton's remix of "Bluffin" is classic SOS, providing a bouncy piece of bass-heavy garage house.

Review: Ital Tek joins the likes of Reso and Starkey and jumps to Civil with four brand new flavours - each one as sparkling, uplifting and rhythmically complex as his ace body of work on Planet Mu. Sonically smelting the best aspects of juke, dubstep, techno and good old fashioned electronica, each moment on "Hyper Real" is an urgent call to the dancefloor while giving your mind plenty to chew on: "Hyper Real" reaches for the sun without any protective clothing whatsoever, "Re Entry" is more somnambulant shuffle that gets interrupted by a massive classic electro bass riff. "The Flood" looks to Detroit for inspiration while "Froze Up" takes a techno tablet. Let's get real now people; hyper real!

Hurting Me - (5:33)
from $1.49
Review: Zed Bias on Digital Soundboy: Hook-ups don't carry much more weight than this. "Heavy Water Riddim" is a tight weave of rain stick magic and layers of mesmerising percussion. Loaded with sudden riddim switches, it's both minimal and full bodied and builds to a deadly breakdown by way of ominous synths. "Hurting Me" engages Zed's more soulful mode thanks to its emphatic synths and insistent Kerri Chandler-style hook. Once again representing himself as a true player in all groove fields, Zed Bias has delivered something very special here.
