Review: Dom Tarasek aka Commodo has already appeared on perhaps the biggest dubstep labels around, and he made his name from the string of releases on Mala's Deep Medi Muzik - not exactly a bad place to start your career, that's for sure. However, he's now branching out to other quality households, and this new LP on Black Acre feels just right in every single way. Right because his deep, brooding sound fits ever so well with the rest of the label, and right because How What Time flows perfectly as an album unit. There are three tunes on each side of the two slabs of wav, and they work as perfect, tidy trios that carry the same sort of leftward bass sound, one that never goes to deep as to become abstract, but also never gets too violent as to become silly. All in all, it is masterfully executed dubstep for the 2016 palate. Killer.

Review: Established during UKG/deep house's latest halcyon era in 2011, Four40 have navigated the bass, house and garage landscape with understated charm, forward-thinking fusions and occasions splashes of gully for five years, amassing well over 70 releases in the process. To celebrate they're put together this immense 54 track collection that represents the label's many sounds and successes. From Regality's deep Chicago inspired chugger "Celebrate" to Morcee's subtle speed garage swag "It's You", Hybrid Theory's atonal bass grunts and happy slap snares on "Mind Games" and Tom Shorterz subverted soul on "Wot U Do", Four40 cover all bass bases and provide an opportunity to fill any holes in your collection. Here's to another five years.

Review: Tumble Audio is what you would call a truly "UK" label. This is because it deals in just about any strain of British dance music, and from garage, through to dubstep, and post-bass, it always delivers the goods in style. This time it's Archive with five smoking riddims from the depths of underground, and "Keep Guard", along with "Ghana Police" are what you would call true hybrids - the beats are harsh and stepping, while the low frequencies dominate the groove. "Gully", once again, proves that 'bass' music really is a thing by chucking in just about any genre imaginable that falls on the hardcore continuum, and there's even a few remixes of "Keep Guard", one stripped-down Burial-like reinterpretation by Bromley, and heavy-stepping version by Sly-one.

Review: Bristol bass brutality: Sentiment makes his Tumble Audio debut with a package that comprises three originals and two heavyweight remixes. "Fomo" is a bounty of dynamics and designs as bass textures from the last 10 years of grime, dubstep and trap fuse and fight one another. "7 Looks Better Than 8" is much more a straight-up icy grime piece (think Asa & Sorrow's introspective style) while "Flexin" opts for a sci-fi grime bounce similar to that of another fellow Bristolian, Joker. Remix-wise Chimpo chows down on some serious space cake while Killjoy throws in a little 4/4 UKG strut. Nice.

Review: Midlands bass duo, Hybrid Theory, were only recently up in the dock on trial for their murderously killer low-end frequencies. Seems that they must have got off on a technicality as they are already back out and ready to offend again. This new split single features two typically uncompromising productions. "Fatality" features knife-sharp hi-hats, buzz saw bass and positively lethal drops a plenty. "The Edge" meanwhile boasts skippy breakbeats, merciless bass bounce and even some string samples just to shake things up a little.

Review: Mak and Pasteman should not be categorised as being 'bass artists'. A better way to coin their styles would be to say that they make pretty fierce and excellent DANCE music. This latest collaboration on Lobster Boy seems them in a surprising techno mood, which at first is more contained and steady on the breaks through "Call 2 Me", before turning all hawkish and German on us through the highly recommended banger that is "Le Freak". Solid.

Review: Yip Wong has done nothing but impress since his first EP's started coming out on Project Mooncircle, and his material under the Deft banner has given us consistently high levels of freshness and experimentation. Moreover, Wong always manages to add soemthing personal to his bass amalgamations, thereby rendering them both powerful and alluring. "For Sudden" is the perfect example, a broken bass scorcher with an Eastern sort of chime to it, while "Cronx" sounds like across between Madlib and Mala, so not exactly a bad combination. "Ivory Tusk" stutters its sharp bass knives all over the shop, and "Sesame Street" sees Deft team up with Thebis and Touchy Subject for a jazzier sort of moment that sounds just right; "Cat Life Thief" ties things off with a placid touch, a gentle wave of harmonics that dissolves the anger of the previous tracks away.

Review: Voodoo Rebel mainstay LSWR hooks up with long-time MC collaborator Digi for another beat/bass hybrid that will work well with all dubstep, trap, halftime and bass DJs. With lean groove, the rising hoover tones come from nowhere as Digi provides a demonic sermon. Remix-wise Distro codes a more upbeat funk into the blend while XL Arge takes things right down in the ghetto dungeons. Smoking.

Review: Welcome to the fracture clinic: Delo makes his debut on GRNDWRK with a delicious slice of broken music. Rapid breaks and gritty bass provide the ageless rave template where heads are down and the groove is bittersweet. Subversion fans should lick up Nuvaman's take on Delo's previous roller "Point Blank". Laced with depth plunge subs on the kicks, it's not dissimilar to the type of grit LFO used to blow minds with back in the day.

Review: It takes an artist like Jack Stevens aka Sully to land on the ever-excellent Black Acre label, now a mini institution for London bass and broken house beats. Having already released a myriad of sublime post-dubstep, Sully quickly takes shape and delivers his disjointed approach to beat-making with style and panache - "Vamp" bleeps its way across a murky landscape, while "Arco" goes for a slo-mo juke approach, and "Bronze" drops us in a deep and chimerical landscape made of shredded, minimalistic percussion patterns and sinister harmonics.

Review: Bristol's Asa and Sorrow have struck up quite the partnership over the last few years, and the duo are quickly establishing themselves as lean, mean machine for producing well-oiled slabs of mutant bass experiments. They're back on Kapsize this time - home to big boys such as Benga and Joker - and they've brought the fire with five lethal doses of almost-dubstep, and finely deconstructed pseudo-house. Across all five bangers, the harmonies float over punchy breaks, devious hooks and pounding walls of low frequencies. It's one for the purists, that's for sure, but this is also gear that can easily appeal toolbars of a good, casual bass-shake.

Review: A Made Up Sound man Dave Huismans is not messing around on this 12", his first outing on Delsin for six years. Opener "Thin Air" may contain creepy melodies, strange samples and curious orchestral samples, but these largely play second fiddle to a booming techno rhythm. "All Out" and "Waybackmachine" also hit home hard, with trademark rhythmic madness and densely layered chords combining to create two hectic and intense broken techno smashers. Even the EP's most laidback moment, the noticeably deeper "I Repeat", owes its' power to a surging sub-bass line and some snappy post-dubstep rhythms, rather than its' faintly unsettling electronics and melancholic musical elements.

Review: Lokane stepped up for the first time back in August with a killer grime EP for Infinite Machine, and he's back on the young Nervous Horizon. Coming through with something of a mini LP - or extended EP? - he lays down some utter truth with these seven curb-side grime experiments that recall much of the Night Slugs output. That's right, you got it, that means broken shreds of percussion bouncing around and demolishing anything in from of them. "Visions" sets of a drunken drum stroll that never quite seems to take shape (that's a compliment, by the way), but there's also plenty of more hypnotic and mind-bending rhythms such as "Body Double", "In The Trap", or "Overproof". This is a sick one, people, and it's probably pick of the week for the digital bass charts.

Review: Having recently celebrated their tenth release, Sheffield's Chip Butty have now rounded up the cream of their roster for Chip Shop Vol 1. There are nine bangers featured here, all promising 'hard 4x4 beats mashed with twisted basslines'. They're not wrong either: highlights include label stalwart Dr Cryptic's pounding garage-step sing-a-long "Dirty Dot", the doomily orchestrated wobbler "Marching Powder" by Sekt 87 and the menacing speed garage of "Rude" by Little Mesters.

Review: Yeah boy! We hadn't heard or seen from garage legend MJ Cole in a good while, and every time we see a new EP from the man pop onto our laps, we find it difficult to stay still in our seats. Sadly, this latest appearance on Lobster Boy is a brief one, with the excellent "Alcatraz" being the only tune on offer; however, it does satisfy our every need through some rough, pounding house beats, and de-tuned vocal samples that simply call to the dance floor. It's a tune that pretty much any DJ on the planet can enjoy, and tool it up to just about anything. Heavy, as expected.

Review: 877 Records come from the same school of thought as labels like Swamp81, Hessle Audio, or even Hotflush Recordings, but the imprint has always managed to keep at a safe distance from all the hype and nonsense surrounding the 'bass' world. This time they've got newcomer Saidwho to throw down some knowledge in the form of three heavy-as-hell cuts that sit somewhere between house, techno and pure bass-weight. "Overkill", "We Are One", and "Play it" are all shining examples that formulas are overrated, and that one doesn't have to follow any rules to come up with powerful, hard-hitting dance music with a UK test. Luckily, 877 know how to pick up this sort of talent. Tip!

Review: Usually known for his heavyweight D&B, Simula drops the UKG bomb with a deep bubbling MC-fronted cut that ignites with deep house chords but soon hurls into a glitchy 4/4 strut that's not dissimilar to My Nu Leng. Remix-wise all bass bases are covered... Spookz applies the breaks, Skepsis chisels up the two-step and reverses the bass, Karl Vincent twists up the drums and busses up the reverb and roominess while K Green strips things right back on a much deeper classical garage version before dropping the gully bomb on the drop. Cheeky.

Review: Taken from their third anniversary album Tessellations, Houndstooth remind us of four of the many hitman hurters they delivered earlier this year. Special Request's "Live From Alpha Centauri" is a straight up junglist romp conjured in the way only he knows how. Akkord's "Vector" dips into a very similar (champion) sound palette but does so at a much slower, starker pace. Marquis keeps us back at the foundation era with a seismic slab of acid house while Second Storey closes the show on a wonked out sci-fi note with a UR-level funkfest "Elephant Ride". Beautiful.

from $2.18
Review: This new EP from Birmingham's bass bastion Bassboy sees him leap artistically from his early days of RnB cut-ups. He's been pushing his sound more towards an off-kilter garage sound of late, though here things begin brightly with "Rainbows" - an infectious fusion of fizzy garage-pop and brutal bottom end. However elsewhere the perky "Colours" benefits from some heavy tribal thump and "Once Upon A Time" is an orgy of nasty 4x4 and 90s vocal snippets and pads aplenty. DJ Direct also appears to add some serious muscle to the title track too.

Review: Boost is Future Times boss man Andrew Field-Pickering's third solo album under his familiar Max D alias and the seven tracks stand up as a fine example of the musical freedom currently running through the DC-based artist's veins. Like us, you've probably played the crushing, freeform 808 cruncher "Rhythm Operator" to death on the FT SoundCloud but we are happy to report the other six tracks are just as daring! As impressive as previous long players for RAMP and RVNG were, Boost feels bolder, a fuller expression of Field-Pickering's undoubted musical talent and less beholden to any particular dancefloor trope. Mood Hutter Jack J, Jordan GCZ, Motion Graphics and Benedek all contribute to Boost, but what really shines through is Max D's beaming smile behind those drum machines. Ps we hope this album is named after our favourite chocolate bars!

Review: Fresh his Keysound D&B opus Blue, Sully returns to Astrophonica with four pristine slabs of breakbeat science. "Flock" places the full strength melodic elements over the faraway amen echoes in a way that's not dissimilar to early Good Looking. "Helios" is a much colder flashback to the darker corners of jungle's formative dance; all breathy minor key chords and vapour trails of paranoia countered neatly by a precision dub vocal sample. "Crystal Cuts" recalibrates the focus to the drums by way of broad jazz chord strokes while "Hours/Miles & Still" concludes affairs on an emotional electronica tip where the breakbeats thanks to a beautifully arresting intro. Powerful.

Review: The trio of Arthur, Sam and Alex, aka Wolfe, released their two-track underground hit Love Is/Without U at the start of March. Although we're still rinsing it left, right and centre, they'll decided to follow it up with some remixes. In other words, they're spoiling us! The former is tackled by DJ Direct, who turns the tune into punchy 4 x 4 banger loaded with big synthy drops and even bigger build-ups. The latter meanwhile is taken in deeper direction by MindOfaDragon, who delivers scattershot steppy beats bleeps, whirrs and eerie pads. Top quality gear!

Review: The inimitable SVBKVLT is one of the only labels out there that is making grime music as it should be heard; none of this pseudo bass and quasi house, just the real gear aimed at getting your head nodding up and down in the car - shotgun, preferably. Kai Luen is a newcomer to the scene, but we're sure that we'll be hearing him soon and often given how masterful his skills on the mixing desk seem to be with these ten stone-cold killers. "The Hollow Ghost" itself contains all the elements of classic grime joints by the likes of Plastician, while others like "LA 92" or strive down headier paths, sometimes landing on hints of hip-hop or Burial-like percussion excursions. The real shit.

Review: Here we have a truly international release with South Africa's Okzharp (aka Gervase Gordon of LV fame) teaming up with Manchester's Samrai (Swing Ting). For the Gated EP they've collaborated with various singers with interesting results. Citied by their own label as being a 'pivotal record' at their Keysound Sessions parties, the instrumental "Gated" fuses evocative trance synths with a dancehall fervour that just perfectly works. Elsewhere the tune gets tweaked in different directions - Specialist Moss adds some classic reggae mic action, Ruffest leads a cool Afro-house angle and Shokryme wraps things up with a welcomingly eccentric delivery.

Review: Selekta releases have been pretty scarce of late so it's a thrill to see him finally return with two fierce new tunes to drop. Once again released through 877, these new joints are bound to take him to the next level. Brimming with energy, "Nang" is a speedy 4x4 assault, equal parts vitriolic and visceral, and it'll certainly get you moving. "Touch" on the other hand, is a moodier beast, all thumping jack beats, 303s and snarling bass. Flava D also joins the party, turning the title track into a slammin' wobble-heavy banger.

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: 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.

Review: Paul Woolford's first Special Request material since signing to XL, he's gone right back to the roots (roots which XL helped dig and plant themselves) with nine tracks of heady, sweaty rave evangelism. Labelled as three EPs in one, it's as good as 2013's debut album with every track tailored for the dancefloor. From the brain-melting warped bass and tension/release of the title track we dig deep into breakbeat science... "Amnesia" is the sound of 1991 when hardcore first found its feet, "Reset It" tips it cap to A Guy Called Gerald, "Damage" ups the ice factor with synths so cold they could make Randall shiver while "Take Me" and "Simulation" are both unfettered love letters to the earliest chapters of the Whistle Crew. We could go on, but we're pretty sure you know the score... Hardcore.

Review: Since 2010, and coming out of the whole post-dubstep scene, Manchester's Alex Coulton has been among the best of the UK bass artists. His skills being the mixing board have seen him travel from label to label, stopping off at the likes of Idle Hands, All Caps, Livity Sound, and even the mighty Tempa. Coulton returns to the latter with a follow-up to last year's "Recall" bombshell, and he's in no mood to mess around here. "Ambush" is a tribalesque tech-house number with a rattling percussion that renders it UK through and through; "Direction" sees the producer return to his more usual mood by serving up a broken bundle of drums and percussion curling around loose melodies and a dubbed-out makeover. For fans of Hessle output - what that bassline, son! Hot!

Review: LA junglists Noah D and No Thing get AAA access to the Liondub vaults and are told to do their damage with their unique fusion of dancehall, digidub, jungle and bass. Subverting 11 of Liondub's wide-reaching releases, the album-sized results are exciting, unique and full of surprises such as the vocalised synth layers on "Control", the rich vocal focus of Bunny General on "Soundwar" and the out-and-out badmanisms of "Nuke A Soundboy". A really interesting remix concept that works just as well as whole as it does as a collection of serious floor-firers.

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.

Review: Bass badboy Swindle rocks his way back onto the Butterz catalogue, a label he hadn't visited ever since his first releases four years back, after numerous outing on the mighty Deep Medi Musik and Planet Mu, among others. Peace, Love & Music is his first full-length work, and it's also the most diverse piece of music that he's put out so far. The opener "Gotta Do" is a true introduction of his skills, where strange instrumentation travels beneath radio edits calling his name, but every other track on here contains a wide range of sounds and influences, from jazz to R&B and even drum & bass, all coated in a familiar layer of bass to comfort the corner dwellers. It's a smacker, check it!

From the angular breaks on "Last Derm", the Surgeoncraft of "Rhyonon", the stop/start drama of "Silicium Romance" or the slo-mo early jungle re-echoes of "Skymining", Deke plunders and pokes the most interesting corners of many genres while creating one that's wholly their own.

Review: Antiballistic has pretty much made the Elastica catalogue as of late, and this time the bass-head is joined by the Ackeejuice Rockers for a session entitled "Booka". The original cut fades sleazy dancehall vocals in and out of a rumbling bass groove loaded with a heavy dose of low frequencies for the club; remixes come from: Sonny Denja who strips everything down to form a mechanical drum rhythm, Aquadrop and their hard-house reinterpretation, and Smoothies' rave-stabbing, slo-mo 4/4 version.

Not a well-travelled road in sight; each act delivers something resoundingly fresh and exciting : Noisia & Ivy Lab get insanely lopsided, Monuman digs a filthy bass grave before lifting us to the heavens with evocative chords, Signs gets the motor running with an array of twisted engine samples while ARKTKT activates a spacey trap mode, all bouncy and gravity-free. Last but not least, Ponicz shreds up with a toxic instrumental hip-hop swag while JNTHN STEIN kidnaps a rainbow then pushes it down the stairs... In the same way Division push the envelope.

Review: For you and your crew: Hypho lays down three crisp originals on Slime subsidiary Boss Mode. Hypes takes the lyrical duties over the grime/dubstep hybrid "True Money" before we dip low into Hypho's steppier/broken material on "Handle It" and the cascading percussive elements on "Holdin' On", both tracks that nod deftly at Hypho's close affiliation with Punks and Rebel Bass. For added value Boss Mode have thrown in an instrumental of "True Money" and an insane Zed Bias-level bruk-bashing remix from Murder He Wrote... Murderation!

Review: Although Celestial Trax hails from the belly of NYC, the artist was first picked up by London's infamous Rinse a while ago, and now by the young and bold Purple Tape Pedigree. It's no surprise, however, as a tune like "Together" stands alone in terms of originality, and is a thoroughly refreshing slice of bass-weight for those looking for their next fix. "Bleed Wiv Me" is softer in terms of melodies but the cut still hits hard with its slicing drums, while "Secrets" heads down the surrealist path thanks to its stop-start glitch-beats, and "Bodily" finishes on an utterly beatless and sinister choir of church voices. Wild and fresh.

Review: Having just about recovered from his Coolie Joyride earlier this year, the world is again ready for some more of this East Ender's often quite tough beats. So here he is right on time with another banger, 'Baby", a production that features everything but the kitchen sink. It starts with some orchestrated hip-house before launching into some pretty serious 4 x 4 with extra lashing of distorted wobble. Elsewhere the Flava Gold mix goes all doomy 2 step, while Da Autopsy throws in the rawest high hats we've ever heard!

Review: On 2012's Luxury Problems, Andy Stott delivered his most rewarding work yet - an impeccable exploration of the twin attractions of lightness and darkness that was near impossible to pigeonhole. Faith In Strangers, that album's belated follow-up, is similarly minded. Peppered with audible references to his many inspirations - field recordings, found sounds, dub techno, IDM, ambient, post-dubstep and trip-hop, in particular - it's a set that quietly drifts between sludgy dreaminess and pin-sharp late night horror. As such, it's an inspired set, with Stott's use of odd instrumentation and the evocative vocals of Alison Skidmore significantly enhancing the experience.

Review: Powerful sonic slappage from Brighton badman Jook. Sitting somewhere between grime, dubstep and tech funk, all three cuts live to up the Certified Banger status. "Lean Back" is all about the tightly cut stabs that wrap themselves around the stop/start kicks and snares, "Alarmed" is all about the wobbles and is just waiting for a fiery flow of MC damage while "Lucy" shows us Jook's softer, star-gazing side thanks to velvet arpeggios and some really interesting sample textures buried deep among the beats.

Review: When it comes to high-powered, contemporary post-dubstep - if there even is such a thing - Denham Audio is one of the finest in the game. This new EP on Heretic is probably amongst his best work, and the opener "Undulate" is pretty much all you need to be sold; it's mean fist of a groove is wrapped so tightly around the bassline that they sound inseparable. "Fractal itself is deeper, more swollen and a bit of a corner-dweller kind of lick, while "Phalanx" strides onto house territories with its 4/4 beat and pounding groove. Dirty remixes to boot from Silas & Snare, and Cloaka & Boxwork - nasty!
