Wolf by Pelikann on Saucy Cue Track
Fak Off (Grande remix) - (3:50) 63 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The UK's Pelikann glides mightily high on the nu-dubstep waves these days, and he's landed firmly on the Saucy clan's catalogue with a fluttering blend of percussion-driven squelchers. "Wolf" is a sludgy, four-to-the-floor monster with plenty of wobbles and grizzly low-ends, and backed by Hywel's more stripped-back version. "Hear Me" is, of course, dark and menacing, and filled with horsepower, but the groove is leaner than its predecessor, leaving the club slashings up to the remixer, Distro. The aptly named "Fak Off" ties things off with deep bursts of power drums and bass stabs, followed by Grande's housier version of the original. Mean.

Ambience - (5:30) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Ambience by Mele on Lobster Boy Cue Track
UFO'Z - (4:56) 131 BPM
from $1.49
Review: "Ambience" from the creatively restless Mele surfaces courtesy of yet another new home, Lobster Boy. The reluctance to be held down to one style is also pleasingly present too, with Mele delivering two new bass bombs, with the title track's carnival-esque fusion of deep tribal beats, diva vocals and absurd breakdown, as well as the quirky, helium laser attack of "UFOZ". Typical Mele - always ahead of the pack.

The Raid (Holy Goof remix) - (5:12) 134 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Two blisteringly fresh originals, one VIP, two remixes; Hadean comes correct with his debut EP. An all-out UK bass assault, "The Raid" sums up his skills; what appears to be a linear, sinewy mid-range bass strutter quickly develops into a multi-bassline face off where new sounds bombard on every bar. "Stompa VIP" updates his Chip Butty banger from last year with mischievous grit while "Brandy" teases us with sexy synths and vocal echoes before plunging us back into Hadean's toxic bass message. With added remixes from the currently unavoidable Pelikann and Holy Goof. Get raiding.

Check Out Time by Taiki Nulight on Night Bass Cue Track
Taiki Nulight - "Check Out Time" - (4:55) 126 BPM
from $1.49
Review: It has to be said that the combining of the terms 'night' and 'bass' does create an extra heady image of nefarious nocturnal shenanigans. Night Bass is a Los Angeles party, the popularity of which proves that America, currently in the early throes of EDM mania, is starting to look deeper for their dancefloor kicks. This compilation, featuring both new and established talent, captures their scene perfectly - highlights including the atmospheric tech-house meets bassline joint "Wild Fire" by Jack Beats, the sparse clickety-clack heavy bass house of "Gloom" by Jay Robinson and Taiki Nulight's staccato hip-house-step bouncer "Checking Out Time".

Paradise (remixes) by Stray on Exit Cue Track
Movements (Machinedrum remix) - (4:38) 180 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Two extremely cheeky remixes here from some unusual suspects. First up, the legendary owner of Exit Records DBridge brings "Paradise" up to another level with glitch after glitch layered surgically precise to bring the whole beautiful soundboard together. On the flip, Machinedrum adds his footwork flavoured style to "Movements", creating an irresistible dancefloor filler in his own 'laid back on top, shufflin' like crazy below' style. Two stunning tracks remixed to true mindblowing effect. This is how it's done.

East Side EP by Distro on 877 (UK) Cue Track
Never Forget - (5:26) 86 BPM
from $1.49
Review: First introduced to the world via Roska's Kicks And Snares label last year, Bristol type Distro has since gravitated towards Brighton and the South Coast's bass evangelists 877. The East Side EP is Distro's second for the label and unlike his debut, which featured My Nu Leng Teng and Flava D, the four tracks are all his own work. With the freedom to fully express himself, Distro lets rip with the title track emerging in calm fashion before dropping straight into a hard as nails funky drum flex augmented by a vicious bassline. From here Distro veers off into steppier territory for the other three tracks, with the immense sub action of "Someone Say" really standing out.

from $1.49
Review: UK operation Saucy Record return with a swiftly compiled second volume of Saucy Selections featuring a healthy 17 cuts of Tech, Bass, House and Garage from the international community. Label regulars like Libra (UK), Melod!k, and Spekktrum brush up against Saucy newcomers and there's a pleasant array of styles and sounds to be found within this selection, moving from sultry cuts such as opener "Had Enough" by Chris Skapetis to tougher and rougher bassline movers. Grande's "NOS" playfully toys around the Club Constructions approach to dancefloor tools, whilst Spekktrum is on aggro form with compilation highlight "The Game".

Upstate - (5:41) 160 BPM
from $1.49
Review: It's no secret that Silkie made his name on Mala's Deep Medi Musik over the last 4-5 years, having already released an album for the DMZ legend and an extensive string of EP's, too. He returns with a new LP on Anarchostar, marking the label's second outing thus far. Over the years, his sound has undeniably grown from the deep and heady dubstep that he was making before, something which can be heard on the poppy melodies of "Arcada", the pseudo house vibe of the rolling "Escape Route", or the slow, hip-hop flavoured stance of "Limits". All in all, it is undoubtedly a bass album, but one which explores many territories and flavours.

Regicide/Ghostrunner by Ipman on Tectonic Cue Track
Regicide - (6:06) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Regicide/Ghostrunner by Ipman on Tectonic Cue Track
Ghostrunner - (5:34) 85 BPM
from $1.49
Review: After an impressive run of form on labels such as Osiris Music and Pressed, the UK's Ipman lands on Pinch's mighty Tectonic imprint with a vicious two-tracker in pure Bristol mode. "Regicide" is a mid-tempo jungle swinger backed by perfectly detuned chords and swamped raga vocals, while "Ghostrunner" calls all station to grimesville with its grizzly bit of wobble low-end and furious percussion shots. Thee two tunes are bound to destroy just about any dancefloor, splitting the subwoofers wide open in the process. Recommended for the bass corner-dwelling, bass heads.

Review: Champion's Formula fam come correct on this expertly curated 15-track exploration into the future realms of bottom heavy music. With exclusive cuts and versions firing from all the label's most consistent contributors, it covers all relative corners creatively; from Killjoy's gameshow grime "Turnt Ones VIP" to the chiselled, sinewy two-steps of Terror Danjah & Zed Bias's "Telepathy" via the sheet metal snares on Flava D's "Break", this collection goes further than representing a forward-thinking imprint but also documents exactly where bass music is heading in the future. Grand prix business.

Review: Well, the UK's Shifting Peaks have really gone and done it with this latest leviathan of a compilation, an anthology of their best and most wanted from 2010 until now. Inside, there's talent and plenty of club antics bouncing off the wall left, right and centre; with over fifty cuts there's enough to go around and satisfy a whole artillery of bass-heads. Some of the stand-outs for us are Tessela's "Yes You Can", Hackman's "Always", "Put You Down" by Odessa, and OM Unit's remix of "Reach Out" by Nphonix. What a belter,
go forth and indulge!

Review: Flinging double negatives like a clown hurls custard pies, AC Slater builds on Night Bass's generous debut release with his second full-fat EP of the year. With a sound and attitude that's been cemented into the bass scene psyche for a decade, you know what to expect from him: BS-free floor-fire with added humour... And that's exactly what we get. "The Chirp" is a Dirtybird-level jacker, "Skywalker OG" taps deeper into the classic house roots with an air of late 90s Van Helden, "Waterverb" flips the trap bird before dropping into some seriously silky 4/4 wobble while "Not No Love Song" vibes with classic rave synths and a speed garage style drop that's not, not, amazing.

from $1.49
Review: Experimental bass dons Tessier-Ashpool welcome back Mutual Friend, last seen on one of the label's various artists EPs, and this time he's got his own release, a heavy three-pronged attack backed by a remix. "Perfection" is a rolling steel-pumper of a track built around heavy percussion stabs and broken rhythm, sounding like something on Hessel or Tectonic. "Triangulating" is even more messed up thanks to its stop-start groove and eerie background sonics, whereas "Evolve" breaks out the techno and steams it way across the arrangement with harsh snares and bleeping hypnotics. Liar's remix of "Perfection" destroys the groove once and for all, chucking in a helping of sci-fi cinematics in the process.

Review: Such was the dancefloor decimation caused by Hybrid Theory's recent crowdpleaser King Kong Riddim, they've decided to do it all over again! "King Kong 2.0" is a souped-up accelerated version of their anthem that now manages to merge tech-house, ominous orchestration, hysterical vocal samples, 4x4 bassline grooves and hip-hop beats. Wow!

Is This Insanity? (Ben Klock remix) - (6:36) 65 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Holland's Martyn is so in tune with the UK sound that we sometimes think he's hiding out in the underbelly of South London among the likes of Burial or Loefah. This time he's back on his own 3024 alongside The SpaceApe - usually delivering his fine vocal swagger for Kode9 - with "Is This Insanity?", a stop-start dubstep hybrid for the darker sets. "Camberwell Green" follows without any kick drum, just a gorgeous bundle of melodies and percussion riding on the top, and Berghain master DJ Ben Klock remixes the title track into an effective techno clusterbomb reminiscent of the tunes for his own Klockworks imprint. Large.

Review: Proudly committed to exploring and channeling the roots sounds of African music, Italian producer Cristiano Crisci is back on Black Acre following last year's triumphant Tayi Bebba album. His handling of authentic African culture grows ever more adept, most notably in the way he fuses percussive and vocal sounds with modern Western electronics, resulting in two essential jams that should ease themselves onto many an eclectic dancefloor. "Camo" certainly has the distinctive hook in its punchy chord line, but "Fever" manages a more flamboyant end result with its powerful low end and ever-rising drum pressure built for all manner of dancefloor shock outs.

from $1.49
Review: One of the most exciting representers of UKG's darker, techier, more mischievous underbelly, Deadbeat UK steps up to Tumble once again with four straight up dancefloor-minded thug-outs. The title track switches from robust 4/4 to slinky two-step while a guttural bassline gurgles dirty limericks down your lugholes. "Shapeshifer" wriggles with more of a tubular, metallic snake-bass feel. "Pagans" is rough enough to melt bricks while "Bleak" jumps and bumps with a tightly punctuated hook that's as clipped, direct and unforgiving as a Boer war sergeant major.

Review: DJ Zinc's Bingo Bass chalks up its third Structures releases and it comes from the main man himself; Benjamin Pettit's long awaited return is taking shape. Prior to these Structures releases, Zinc's last flurry of music came out in 2010, and the UK producer's sonic palate is seemingly evolving with this current stream of funky, UK bass and big room house sounds, just check out opening track "Right Here". Bouncy, knees up drum and bass is the order for the DnB mix of "Back Up" while dark UK funky rears its head in "Back N Forth". Stepping drum and bass makes its way into the EP with "Boppa" alongside the electro of "273" and breakbeats of "Fraction".

Review: London's pioneering Hyperdub label returns with a hot collaboration between three perfectly matched artists. Female vocalist Jessy Lanza is accompanied by juke specialist DJ Spinn and Taso on "You Never Show Your Love", a rhythmic blend of fast-shooting percussion stabs and Lanza's own R&B vocals, backed by an instrumental version. There's also two tasty remixes, one from the late DJ Rashaad, a master at the juke genre, and 50 Weapons's Bambanou who proceeds to deliver his trademark brand of technoid tribalism. Banger of an EP, through and through.

Review: Formula Records, the London label run by Champion and home to the likes of Mele, Flava D, Hybrid Theory and more, expand operations with the arrival of the F2 sublabel dedicated to breaking emergent talent. The honour of the debut F2 release falls on PVC, previously spotted excelling on Formula's f=BASS²' compilation. The Brighton talent sets the bar high with two bonafide dancefloor cuts that really showcase his talent for crisp, intricate drum programming and razor sharp basslines. The latter is naturally a prominent feature of "Give Me Bass", augmented by some swinging 2-step rhythms redolent of vintage UKG. Complementing this, "Underground" has shades of prime Mickey Finn to its usage of vocal samples and is a deliciously darker production.

Review: When Ninja Tune come knocking on your door to remix one of their artists, in this case Machinedrum, you answer. dBridge welcomes Travis Stewart's "Rise N Fall" into his studio with a vocal build up that drops into an emotional pulse of stepping drums and twinkling atmospheres. Om Unit's remix of "Gunshotta" delivers an old school bassline and frenetic jungle percussion, while Moresound pitches rave against touches of footwork, drum and bass and a whole load of bootyshake in his remix of "Dont 1 2 Lose U". For something a little more easoteric, Fis detunes and twists "Eyesdontlie" into a cavernous throb of earthshaking rumbles with demonic vocal loops adding an extra haunting vibe.

Review: Do you have any regrets in life? You will once you've heard this... XXXY continues his deep tech Rinse sermons with this powerful-yet-understated trio of brooding, reflective tracks. "Regrets" burns low-and-slow like a Henrik Schwarz cut, all strings and soft pads. "12049" follows suit with tightly clipped synth patterns over another insistent but subtle drum arrangement (think Ame's "Rej") while "Over Peover" joyrides New Horizons' slipstream and takes us to the further reaches of the solar system by way of twinkling arpeggios and lush, life-affirming synth chords. Beautiful.

Review: UK grime deviant youngster Callahan inaugurates the 4 Seasons Music imprint with a gnarly four tracks of masked up gutter dance. "Armshouse" takes a stuttering drum roll and unleashes telephone rings and a nasty percussion over it, while "Get Me" slowly enters a house tempo, and "Amalaya" quickly strips all of it back down to a broken, vicious pile of percussion shots. "Basement Serial" has to be the cherry on top of the cake, it's ominous drum bangs away amid layers of drones and distant pads. Sick.

Review: Hyperdub casuals and UKG dons Funkystepz return to Four40 with two new bangers, both of them straight from the gutter and ready to be served out on the Funktion One. The title track "Pirate Material" takes a garage groove and drops a hefty load of wobble bass on top of it, along with a seriously bruising percussion swing - a certified killer! "Copyright" is more of a house churner, still twisted and peppered in the Funkystepz's usual UK flavour. Four40 have come through with yet another pair of lethal weapons, check em'!

Review: Following on from their statement b2b mix CD, Pinch and Mumdance have been back in the studio together to cook up this rough and ready single for the formers Tectonic imprint. Riko Dan brings a savage Jamaican swagger to the title track with his fired-up MC turn, while the beat keeps the pressure high from start to finish. "Lucid Dreaming" provides the moody alternative to that party-starting manifesto with some of that Pinch-esque iciness, a deadly restrained menace lingering over the track without ever needing to resort to big drops or crescendos. There's also an instrumental of "Big Slug" for those who need it, although trying to step to Dan's own vocal is not advisable.

Review: Having previously impressed with a trio of fine EPs and a similarly well-regarded album on Hyperdub some years back, Walton makes the move to Pinch's Tectonic imprint. He kicks things off with the grizzled, post-dubstep sparseness of "Wrench", all thunderous riddims, spooky electronics and spaced-out hits. There's an almost broken beat feel about the mangled grooves, pulsating sub and twittering melodies of "Flute Riddim", while the title track sees him go deep into heavyweight bass territory via drawn-out electronic textures, ragga vocal samples and bouncing beats. He closes proceedings with "L.E.A.N", a deeper, more ghostly trip full of crystalline electronics and spaced-out, half-step beats.

Review: London's Dark Sky trio have come a long way over the last three years, first appearing on the mighty 50 Weapons, then jumping on to Mister Saturday Night's catalogue, and now landing most vertically on Germany's Monkeytown - quite impressive if you ask us! The NTS Radio residents serve up "Voyages", a wonky techno side-stepper complete with tribal percussion and a distinct UK feel. Remix duties are taken care of by Francis Inferno Orchestra, who deliver a hypnotic and floor-ready version of the original, and techno God Reshape with his slithering, ultra-stripped back version. Another class act from Monkeytown camp.

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: For their latest release, Project Allout promise 'pure fire' and 'real big UK garage and bass' from Notion. Well, they've not let us down with Notion stepping up to deliver three tracks guaranteed to smash dancefloors apart from here to Timbuktu. The title track features moody keyboard melodies, sharp 4x4 goodness and even a catchy pseudo rap. "Skankz" brings the bleeps, rave pads and big vocals for some wobbly garage and "How U Feel" mixes speed garage, house and urban vibes for a total sizzler.

Review: Relative newcomer Majora, is a producer who loves division - he divided his time between Bath and Bristol and his sound between 'house, grime and garage'. He doesn't seem to extend this philosophy to record labels though, as he seems to be happy residing with Sounds Of Sumo, who give us a new release package. The title track is thick, gloopy jazz-step meets wobble (turned into heavy 4x4 by Spoils and campy speed garage by Conducta) and "Tech Leopard" takes things even deeper for a deliciously tropical head-nodder (turned raucous carnival jam by Doctor Jeep). Boom!

Review: The third instalment of Hotflush's compilation series drops and it's a seven year flashback to the label's most fractured, far-minded roots as Scuba's label explores their foundations on the fringes of bass and left sided echelons of dubstep. Cuts like Jamie Vex'd's almost p-funk level of bullishness on "Twitch", the loose jazz drums of Elemental's "Sparkle", even looser jazz horns of Jazzsteppa's still-filthy "Two" and Si Begg's baggy, bulbous rhythm on "Angel" represent Hotflush's consistent surges past the very forefront of the once-burgeoning genre, joining the dots and helping make sense of the stern techno cityscapes the label constructs today.

Review: The big bad Wolfe trio make their debut with a handsome EP for the wonderful In:Flux Audio, and with this release the label mainatain the quality of garage and bassline tracks they're known for putting out. The straight-edged "Charlie" is a dubbed-out house stepper with an urban vocal touch, while "Back It Up" is a bass-weighted monster capabale of devouring dancefloors. A clap-centric "Mankey" is a techy hybrid of dub and bass for peak time dealings, and furthermore there's a pretty fine line of remixers too, as Spookz and JG both rework "Mankey" into a sludgier half-step beast.

Review: The second single to land ahead of Spectrasoul's highly-anticipated sophomore set The Mistress, "Shelter" emanates the duo's most sensitive, touching sides. Leaning heavily on a woozy half beat, full focus on placed on Lily's yearning, heart-torn vocals. D&B doesn't get any more emotional than this. Remix-wise Two Inch Punch lays down a darker, barbed beats twist with a treacle-thick slo-mo stomp while Spectrasoul themselves jump on the VIP with a 170 refix that's tailored for prime time floor flattening. The full package.

Review: Keysound collective LHF update the unique legacy left by their debut opus Keepers Of The Light with another intriguing journey into new sonic shadows. The moment the cathedral stretches and ghostly tones of opener "Gateway" light the touch paper, you know this fire will keep your soul toasty. Subverting scenic sights along the way, the journey takes us on a trip through UK funky graveyard ("Surrender"), sludgy double-decade-deep trip-hop ("Yielding"), a skippy lo-fi synth odyssey that one might boldly describe as emotional juke ("Entrapment") and raw, tribal drum shamanism ("Mud And Root"). Comparisons could be made with the likes of Modeselektor, UR, Massive Attack and even Hot Chip's earliest work but it's best described as LHF. A troupe who are truly in a league of their own. Stunning.

Review: Following the success of recent debut EP, Telling You, Holy Goof is back with more ammo courtesy of a new four tracker named after his own locale, "Midland Line". Already getting heat from Rinse FM, it's heavy on the bottom end and this perky 134 bpm stormer marries hard 4 x 4 vibes with throbbin' wobble, strings. Stabs and loopy vocals. Elsewhere, "Saving All My Love" delivers some snarling bass and laser zaps, while "Oi" continues the menacing atmosphere, furthermore Notion joins the party with synthy banger, "Buss".

Review: The second London/NYC Transatlantic session within four months; it's clear the fusion between the two city's labels is healthy, creative and ultimately fertile. Highlights across this international modern bass romp include the delicate jazz samples of Matt Deco's spacious stepper "Absent Minder", the juicy digidub bubbles and woozy horns of Dubsworth & Tapa's "Backflipper", Bakir's percussive snake-hip wriggler "Hyperion" and the breezy hums, distant yearns and dampened rim shots of Jobanti's "Afrique".

from $1.49
Review: Having previously used their dnuoS ytiviL offshoot to release material from their nearest and dearest (think Batu, Bruce, Hodge and Alex Coulton), Bristol's Livity Sound crew turns to unknown French producer Simo Cell. The two tracks showcased here are a rather fine introduction to this newcomer, with opener "Piste Jaune" offering a clandestine blend of stuttering electro bass, discordant analogue percussion hits and spooky electronics. The mystery man goes for the jugular on "Cellar Door", with pitched-down, bleep style melodies and liquid electronics riding an off-kilter, broken techno groove. Another fine Livity release.

Generator (with Corporal F) - (6:12) 129 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: After appearances on Bear Fresh and the now sadly defunct Trouble & Bass, Glasgow pair Mr. Beeb and Fault Lines bring their Klient project to Leeds label Tessellate. Overseen by Corporal F, Tessellate has swiftly established itself within the bass music community and this trio of trademark darkside rollers from Klient can only assist in the label's ascent. Lead cut "Intent" sets the tone nicely, sharp bass lines viciously swerving around the channels amidst some superbly chopped up rhythms. "Vultures" offers a further example of their clear prowess for bassline manipulation - just wait for that drop - whilst final cut "Generator" features that man Corporal F behind the mixing desk too.
