Review: Unless you've been asleep since March or you've accidentally found this review while looking up an old school mate who happens to be called Richie (or Richard) Brains then you'll know EXIT played this mystery out in style. We all had suspicions on his identity but not even the biggest forum nerd could guess that it's actually Alix Perez, Chimpo, Fixate, Fracture, Om Unit, Sam Binga and Stray. Seven men, each one decorated and respected, their skills culminating in a body of work that's part funk ("Game Shades"), part Carptenarian cinematica ("Sk8 M8") part woozy, wonky halftime ("The Blips") part grime ("Bring Dat Back") part D&B beauty ("Voyage") and all gully. It's going to be hard to find a release more deserving of the title 'album of the year' this year.

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: Boy, it's their instalment of the This Is Night Bass series and, as always, it's a tight and severely jam-packed bag of pure bass-ridden quality. The rhythm carrying the best part of the release is one that locks into 4/4 mode, but the melodies, low frequencies and vocals contain something seriously UK about them. In fact, if you're looking for purist British house music with a garage flavour then you'v hit the right spot; it's as if these guys have tele transported back to 2000/2001, when the roots of dubstep were being laid-down from the foundations of garage and bassline. YES.

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: Brighton's up and coming DJ/producer Pavv is back on Southpoint with some truly representative sounds of the UK underground garage sound and after some great releases on Project All Out, In:flux Audio and U Wot Blud? Records. The sexy and wonky title track is no doubt indebted to legends like MJ Cole, but what an impressive tribute; the use of the sampled vocals on this one is sweet. Bushbaby turns in a pretty killer remix of the track too which we dug, adding more swing to the rhythm and some added 'wonk' to the bassline which worked well. Also appearing is "Run Tings" which is more raw, tracky and full of attitude; save this one for later in the night when you want to up the energy level effectively.

Review: It's another all-out wide-armed creative assault from the dedicated beat crafters at White Peach. Uniting old friends and new, each cut reminds us why the label is top of grime's fruit bowl. Eva808 polishes up the strings for a moment of subversive cinematica, Gundam's "Swordplay" takes us deep into Samurai territory, and longstanding Peacher Zha gets his paws on a sitar and snaps the instrument into pieces while Nakes's "Axe Riddim" juxtaposes eastern strings with a collection of precision tuned wood blocks. Innovative and forward-thinking... These peaches will never go mouldy.

from $2.18
Review: There was a point in Creep N00m's discography that it felt like we were getting album-sized projects every half a year. In comparison to Run Dem, however, they were barely EPs... Cooked over a longer gestation period, marinated in VIPs, sprinkled with cameos (Dubzta, Genoc1de, Ro Nin) and garnished with details and repeating elements, Run Dem is an immersive (not to mention tasty) body of work from start to finish while offering freshness for DJs on every dark, grumbling twist and turn. From the creeped out reverse groans, tightly rolled hi-hats and funky, sleazy kicks of "Fighta VIP" to the paranoid bass warps of "Mass Murder", this is the sound of a man who knows his palette and vision intimately and intuitively.

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: The latest stop on Lamont's concurrent ascendency in the world of leftfield bass prodigies is none other than 81 UK. Here the label enables him to deliver a searing two-track reminder of why he's boss in bass. "Titanic" is an apocalyptically doom-ridden ghetto joint, all sparse beats and creep FX. "Eyes Closed" on the other hand, is an intense sonic melodrama set to some seriously serpentine trap rhythms and taut orchestral flourishes.

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: It's been way too long since we've heard from Polish duo Negativ. Thankfully they're back with a full force EP on another UK label, 887. The VIP mix of "Stealth" starts proceedings with a bang - dark tropical beats with a muscular bass bounce and even a cheeky hardcore break. Elsewhere "Ritual" sounds like Gary Numan's synth guys at a breaks night in Fabric and "Havoc" wraps things up with moody FX, evil bass stabs and tough, tense beats. Great to have them back.

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: LA's Big Sigh Brat Club gold card member Farsight delivers his most generous body of work to date on Bristol's PRJKTs imprint. Treating us to left-sided celestial twinkles ("Faded Memory"), anti-gravity ghetto jams ("Hymn Of Safe Passage"), 23rd century rave breaks ("Starduster") and twisted juke/jungle hybrids, his diverse, playful unpredictable signature is sharpening with every beat. Meanwhile on the remix flex Luru goes straight-up crazy with his kicks while +/- re-constructs tribal house in a dissonant future context.

Review: Liverpudlian bass demon, Lucent, is a regular on myriad dance music compilations. In other words his sounds reverberate around the globe. Here he conjures up a demonically warped breaks anthem with soulful diva vocals and a seriously mangled bassline. There's also a selection of remixes by some key names of the scene: Jaqou George rocks up with some laser shoot-out percussion and nasty stabbing bass, Pelikann adds a certain dreaminess to the 4/4 madness, the legendary Rico Tubbs brings his trademark energy-wobble to the party and Selekta wraps things up with some deep killer UKF.

Review: Bad boy bass man Phrixus is back with mighty fury on Sounds Of Sumo, and he's open for business as usual, rolling out the punches and the low-frequency weight. This seven-tracker has everything you'd possibly want from a UK bass release, with the majority of the tunes dipping and diving in and out of pseudo grime sways, peaks of house and even a little wobble step in the low-end. Remixes come from Kiri, Croft and Fritz Carlton.

Review: UK bass renegade Jim Coles aka Om Unit is back and presenting the second volume of Comsology for his very own Cosmic Bridge imprint. It's another edition of cutting edge UK futurist dub inspired sounds. Starting out with the intergalactic dub of DJ Madd's "After Dark" it then gets stuck in to dark and paranoid bass therapy like on Danny Scrilla's "Riddim". Label head honcho Om Unit himself gets stuck in on "Wagonist Riddim" (Sully's YM Steppers mix) which buzzes about the place in lo-bit video game style. The real highlights though, are the new wave junglism of Moresounds & DJ Madd's "Undastand", Om Unit & Fracture's impressive footwork crossover style on "Chatting Breeze" or the body bashing dark side fury of Om Unit's "Spiritwerk (Loxy & Resound remix)".

Review: This is no real surprise, but Canada's Philthkids are in no mood to mess around, and this latest EP is another shot straight to the head. Coming through courtesy of Modern Ruin, "Cyber Sapiens" is a butty tune, a not-so-gentle blend of footwork and 94' jungle held together by an intricate arrangement and some killer sonic work. "Power Supply" is more jungle than anything else, but its bassline is fresh and provocative, while "The Core" lashes out a heavy techno beat beneath starry, detuned synths; "Memory" features BSMNT and a nu-school kinds tribal beat that is a total pleasure on the old dancing feet.

Review: Doncaster's foremost expert on all things rave, Mella Dee, steps up for the latest release on DEXT. He's got a hard act to follow after 'that' Hodge remix of Callahan on the previous DEXT missive, but Mella Dee proves he's more than up for the challenge with this Deep Soul single. Indeed DEXT are calling it his strongest fusion of house, techno and jungle yet and we can't really find any cause to disagree. The title track sets a thunderous tone, throwing down a crucial melange of filtered amens, chopped-up vocals and Reece bass lines that will grip hold of your affections immediately. From here, Mella veers off into straight up jacking house territory on "Universal", whilst "Circular" is there for the heads down crew. Sandwiched inbetween is a rather moody refix of the title track from Endian.

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: 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: 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.

Straight Forward - (4:11) 101 BPM

Review: Copenhagen's Shield is one of the few out there still properly experimenting with drum&bass, and alongside the likes of Alix Perez, we would classify him as a purveyor of the minimal-edged for of the genre. "Bmy Flava" nods its heavy kick-bass to and fro amid woozy waves of melodies, while "March Of Giants" sounds like a Noisia tune that's been slowed right down thanks to a dose of heavy tranquillisers. "Fools" is more aggressive thanks to the presence of noxious wobble bass amid its percussive steps, and "Straight Forward" is more of a classic hip-hop joint with a little more umph in its underbelly, sounding like it could be about to explode at any moment.

Review: Alphabets Heaven is the sort of sound you're looking for when all other electronica and leftfield music seems to be weighing heavy, or just not offering that little bit extra juice. This new extended EP - or LP - on WoNot Music is the perfect companion to a lazy stroll along the canal, a buzzing chat around the fire, or even a little wayward dance; each tune offers something deep and mystical, where regurgitated formulas are replaced in favour fresh and zesty electronic rhythms that go from balearic (check "Mogwai") to the more dark and spectral. It's a little creative feast for anyone looking to add some spice and fervour to their meditation.

The Edge - (4:20) 126 BPM
from $2.18
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: Undisputed godfathers of UK dubstep Horsepower Productions are back with another full length; their first in 12 years since 2004's To The Rescue LP. As Tempa themselves put it succinctly: "Crooks, Crime & Corruption" draws from numerous facets of the UK underground and further afield in order to take you on a compelling, wholly immersive journey. Highlights include "Justify" featuring Harry Keyworth which sounds like Jah Wobble versus Ry Cooder, the deep spiritual house of "Bak 2 NY" or "Kurisoity 6" and the business as usual, street level bass therapy as heard on the raw "Change" or the pure fire junglist anthem "Criminally Insane".

Le Freak - (6:16) 62 BPM
from $2.18
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.

BUY
Vague - (4:37) 134 BPM
from $2.18
Review: Here we have clash of the Bristolian titans with rising R&B dude Conducta hooking up with bass man Notion for the long awaited "Felt This Way". This title track has a retro-futuristic 2-step vibe about it, with echoes of the early work of Craig David and Artful Dodger (officially no longer a bad thing). On the digital flip, "Vague" is a dirtier affair - all nasty bass undulations, pitched vocal snippets and sparse, high-rise beats. Fresh.

Cat Like Thief - (3:47) 159 BPM
from $2.18
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: Cable and Ghostly wire up for some toe-to-toe badness. What originally began a few years back as the hard-nosed, two-steppy "Ganon" (also included) is now an all-out rifle jam as Ghostly spits out concentrated messages and confident hype, ensuring everyone knows who's in the building. Complete with an acapella and a swear-free version to play to your mum, there's no messing around in 'ere.

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: Project Allout have got their skins at the helm and lighters firmly out; the label welcome Sync Button to their crew, a new artist who seems right at home on his newly found label. Tunes like "Why Not" or "Level Up" are the perfect UK hybrids, dance floor cuts that sway between tech-house and bass music without fuss and with total ease. The same goes for "Do It Right", which is a little housier in its framework, and the deeply wobbly-friendly "Most Wanted". Fireee!

Ambush - (6:04) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
BUY
Direction - (6:09) 126 BPM
from $2.18
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!

Bell Blender - (4:19) 132 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.18
Review: Making the leap from 50 Weapons (RIP), German darkmonger Phon O makes the logical leap to Tectonic. And he does so with three barren break-based constructs: "Mercurial" is all about the deep space breakbeats and groaning high-end bass slurs, "U8 Phunk" carries classic electro elements in its synths while the au-natural snare rolls suggest more of a militant march, finally "Bell Blender" takes the bleak dynamics established throughout the previous tracks and repurposes them in a modern day jungle amen-shattering framework. The results are beyond satisfying.

The thing is, if you're looking for a good dose of contemporary base that sits all under one hefty compilation, you've pretty much struck gold with this.

Review: It's Friday so that means another taster from Redlight's upcoming Templates Mixtape Vol 1. is here. According to the Lobster Boy main man, "Toasty" is a "cheeky little belter" and bodes well for the overall mixtape. Driven forward by Redlight's trademark feel-good basslines and crisp drum programming, there is a gal-force energy to "Toasty" that the dancefloor will immediately resonate with.

Played by: GAZE ILL
Review: It's an all-Australian takeover on Tempa for their 107th release, coming through in the shape of Cliques, Sydney's Hamish Dixon and George Nicholas. "Dotted", the title track, is a fistful of rolling kick drums and scattered percussion, all coated in a fine layer of minimalistic bleeping - a new and min-melting strain of UK-flavoured techno with a definite stutter; mastermind Dro Carey (TTT) remixes the track into a stompier, more cinematic bruiser with a vividly odd kind f flex in classic Carey style. "Untitled" goes for a steppers rhythm beneath solitary pads and aqueous melodies, while "8Th" ups the ante and delivers a nasty, menacing groove to get your head bouncing in pigeon-mode. Recommended!

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: Charismatic Tumble selector Joel hits the road once again with a collection of sinewy UKG, future bass, twisted house and barbed wire grime. Highlights fall of every track like an ill-fitting suit with gully gems such as the weirded out wobbles of Joedan & Kontent?s ?Ruggish?, Killjoy?s vitalising squelch funk on ?Public Enemy?, and premium sexytime silk in the form of Taz?s ?Lonely? and gossamer two-step soul by way of Spekktrum?s ?Talk To Me?. What with it being exactly a year since the last Roadman collection, we?re hoping Tumble turn this into an annual affair.

Review: Following his furiously fugly "Screens" EP, Bad Habit returns. Longstanding bass insurgents, Slime offer the perfect platform for these UKG subversions. We start off all slinky and sexy with "Brain Freeze". All diced vocals and purring subs, it taps deep into the two-step's silkier history. Don't get too sassy, though; "Wickedest One" hurls us back into the toxic melting pot Bad Habit is mostly known for; slap-happy kicks fly from every side while a twist horn hook punches unrelentingly. Finally Aussie duo switch out the organs and turn down the lights of "Fools Love" which appeared on Slime's Future Sound Of Garage. Moody.

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.
