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.

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.

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: 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: 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.

from $1.49
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: Ah yes, Scratcha DVA's mighty DVA imprint makes a swift return with a menacing, chest-pounding compilation for all your low-end fantasies. Both regulars and newbies on here, all showcasing their various sound palettes - strictly centring around a gnarly, snare-heavy bass ideal, of course. We particularly loved Tsunga's "Feisar" and Butty's "One". All-out murder.

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: Continuing the geographical theme of his Vapor City LP, Machinedrum is back on Ninja Tune with more of his dreamy hybrids that sit at the nexus of juke, electro and jungle, expanding on the groundwork of the album with the choppy funk of "Back Seat Ho". Rustie is in a fearsome mood as he reworks the original into a drum-heavy stomper, before "On My Mind" staggers out with its wild-eyed arpeggios and slow-rushing snares. "Neujack" has a futuristic juke lilt to it, precision-engineered for maximum nag, and then Pinch and Adrian Sherwood step up for a remix of "Back Seat Ho" that takes the kitchen sink approach to production from guitars and toasting to rapid fire drum machine blasts.

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: 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".

Only You - (3:53)
from $1.49
Review: First surfacing a few years ago on Black Butter with the appropriately titled UK bass/jungle hybrid "Fyah", Warrior One has become one of the emergent label's most potent weapons. A debut on "Hypercolour's little sister" Losing Suki is probably the veteran producer's most high profile release as Warrior One and you sense it's a good fit as soon as lead track "5ths" swing into focus. It's been called a modern incarnation of "RIP Groove" by some blogs, and the classic 2 step vibes and powerful bassline is certainly reminiscent of that vintage jam though Warrior One melds it successfully with elements of classic US House. On the flip "NYC" is a wholehearted homage to the original house movement in the five boroughs with some truly killer keys, whilst "Only You" has the Warrior One edging back to a more UK-centric sound.

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.

Review: Often dubbed 'The Mighty Clueless' (or so he says), this producer was there on the frontline of the future garage wars a few years back. He takes his time mind, you wouldn't want to be expecting more than a couple of releases a year from him, but when he does drop a new tune, everyone sits up and listens. Last year speakers were banging out his sultry VIP mix of "Secret Love". Now L2S have commissioned a string of new mixes including some scattered, icy beats from Whistla, dubby 2-step from Lojt and some warm fuzziness from Pledge. Safe.

Review: Chrissy Murderbot's rowdy label of bouncy electronics returns for another fulsome compilation of future-shock sounds in the upper tempo ranges inhabited by juke, footwork and jungle, and there's a lot to take in. DJ Mastercard's "Jihad" has an apocalyptic trap kink to it, while "Hotta Than That" finds Deville & Parly B working a mean dancehall swagger and vocal into its machinations. There are occasional diversions into mellower material such as Bleep Bloop's jazz-rich construction "Oceans Of The Solar Heart" and the moody tones of Guchon's "Tower Of Scissors", but for the most part this is lively music to get the hypest floors hyping.

from $1.49
Review: Teklife Vol 1 represents the first release for footwork trailblazer DJ Rashad's new Lit City Trax imprint, created in collaboration with DJ Spinn and associate J-Cush, and a label which promises to be the definitive label for Chicago's well established footwork scene. At a massive 20 tracks this album is a meaty proposition, and it's testament to Rashad's talent that the album is entirely free of filler. Showing the producer's talent for swelling low end and threadbare percussion, album highlights include his excellent DJ Spinn collaboration "We Trippy Mane" with nods to Juicy J, the analogue mayhem of "She Gonna Go", the manic 303 and 808 assault of "Da Life" and the juxtaposition of smooth Rhodes chords, horn samples and furious percussive rattle on "Kush Ain't Loud".

Review: The one like Tony Quattro returns to Trouble & Bass with a scorcher of a three-tracker. 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!

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.

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.

Quick-firing percussion pellets, shuffled house beats and swirling concoctions of bass delight throughout. "Dizzy" is our personal favourite but be sure to check Arctic Shadow and Jook10 on remix duties for the title track.

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.

from $1.49
Review: Following on from the first installment of his razor-edged footwork opus, Spinn is back with more of the futuristic, rhythmically dextrous flex. It's noticeable how much less dictated by the dance battles the music is now, letting melody and texture take precedent. Of course the beats still come in strange and alien configurations, but applied to a more thoughtful backdrop. "Horn Chemist" drops some devilish Eastern sample trickery over soothing Rhodes-esque notes, but that's not to say it's all sweetness and light. "Do My Dance" and "Dance Floor Packed" keep the energy up high while the ghetto house roots are in full effect.

Review: 50 Weapons continue to turn out a healthy amount of Bambounou-related material, although in this instance they look to a pair of remixers to deliver their own interpretations of his unique, bass-laden sound. French Fries steps up with a remix of "Take It Out On Me" that pays its dues to footwork in its raw, tom-heavy construction, while also keeping the arrangement sparse and limber. Laurent Garnier keeps the French connection strong with a version of "Ignition" that sees the veteran techno producer getting deep into a simmering techno treatment that builds progressively over nearly nine taut minutes.

Review: This is the third installment from New York's Doctor Jeep, and it's clear that he's still very much enthralled with UK bass culture. This is none more evident than on "Eccies", coming across like the kind of sleazy rave made by Zomby in his early days. "Vortex" is tropically trippy wobble, "Flash Area" is all digital tribal beats and "Dopamine" is like a hybrid of all the above with added vocoder weirdness. Dope!

Don't Stop - (5:32) 106 BPM
from $1.49
Review: One of the secrets of Hypercolour's success over the last couple of years is the label's willingness to give up-and-coming producers a go. Hence this EP from Newcastle-born Edmondson, who's barely out of nappies. Chestnut Ave is promising stuff, full of slick deepness, fluid grooves and wide-eyed late night melodies. With its yearning pianos, bassy but subdued groove and half-whispered vocal samples, the title track is something of a dancefloor tear jerker. There's a dreaminess to the deep two-step of "Tendency", while "U Belong" sounds like glitchy dub house for the regretamine generation. Best of all, though, are the woozy, close contact vibes of "Don't Stop", which is the sort of disco-flecked slow jam which the House of Disco label used to champion.

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: Bristol's three-headed bass monster Sly One have been slaying all comers over the last few years, ducking and diving between deep house and techno. Although describing "All Mine" as a 'hard house anthem', we think it's better than that - a richly produced bassy raver complete with retro stabs and larger than life female vocal samples. "Promise" shows there more chilled side with a deep proggy bassline and garage-inspired beats. Remixes of the former come in the form of dubstep (Bromley) and subwoofer troubling 4 x 4 chaos (Crown Duels). Goin' places.

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: While her name carries a decent amount of clout these days, Nightwave has still been quite sparing with the amount of material she has released, but now she's back with the rip-roaring firepower of new single Hit It on her own Heka Trax imprint. As her music continues to embrace all manner of attitude laden ghetto business it makes perfect sense that she would link up with the likes of Dance Mania veteran DJ Deeon, and the resulting "Hit It" comes on like a limber modern update of the finest ghetto tech, cheeky lyrics and all. "Fire Hoes" meanwhile takes a ravier stance full of hyped up synth turns and some hard as nails drum hits while "Scooter" does a mean job of slapping trancey synth lines about the chops with a crisp trap beat.
