Review: The London crew who've given us the likes of Rudimental, Clean Bandit, Gorgon City and many other acts, Black Butter have been spreading love for four years now. Judging by this sumptuous set, they're not stopping any time soon. Arguably the darkest collection of the series to date, it ranges from sinewy, waspy bass jackers (DVWLX's - "When I'm Alone") to late night tech funk Berlin-style lazer-fests (BNRY's "Something North") via slinky somnambulant hazy techno (Troy Gunner's "Chain Reaction") and twisted, paranoid UKG hybrid (Jaded's "Gully Creeper"). Each one primed for total dancefloor destruction, Black Butter have delivered a premium package right here.

Deekline & Hotline Zero - "Pump Up The Volume" (original mix) - (3:28) 140 BPM
Top Rankin by Deekline & Ed Solo on Disco Cakes Cue Track
Deekline & Ed Solo - "Top Rankin" (Slynk remix) - (4:48) 110 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
All Gravy by Deekline & Ed Solo on Disco Cakes Cue Track
Deekline & Ed Solo - "All Gravy" (Hotline Zero remix) - (3:38) 110 BPM
from $1.49
Review: It's refreshing to see Disco Cakes add a little something different into the mix of their mash-ups: bass! So in a bold fusion of old and new we get the likes of Deekline & Hotline Zero's "Pump Up The Volume" which takes M/A/R/R/S' 80s hit and marries it to a fizzy Drop It Like It's Hot hip-hop jam. Slynk also has a stab at "Top Rankin" which takes Althea & Donna's perennial 70s party anthem and successfully welds it to some steely big beat sounds and finally Hotline Zero's remix of "All Gravy" gets all tropical bass on our case.

Kiri & Nab - "Full Tilt" - (5:20) 63 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Bear Fresh have been pushing their more deep house-influenced side of late, but now they're revisiting their more urban-orientated "City" series to redress the balance. This second volume keeps the vibes going with nine killer tracks, highlights of which include the wobble-heavy stepper "Crazy Hype" by Crown Duels & Resonate, the apocalyptic 4x4 meanness of "Crater Face" by Pelikan, the tremor-inducing low end of future-laser-house belter, "Olisha's Call" by Scullious & One Over and, the frankly nuts, military bombardment of "Full Tilt" by Kiri & Nab.

Got To Give by Apexape/Chris Lorenzo on Speakerbox Media Cue Track
Listen Up - (6:31) 126 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Bristol's shady Apexape and Chris Lorenzo (of Cause & Effect fame) have teamed up, and with their sizzling anthem "Got To Give" appearing in two forms, it's a match made in dancefloor heaven. The 'heavier' mix is just that - with a descending doom-bass riff luring us into the kind of bass-house Hades to which you must surrender. The 'lighter' mix is only slightly softer with bouncy and percussive garage-house intonations abound. 'Listen Up" is perfect mid-set fodder - all skippy beats and lovely deep synth washes. A class act.

Meltdown EP by Distro on 877 Cue Track
Pinnacle - (5:04) 129 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Brighton bass evangelists 877 have the likes of GoldFFinch and My Nu Leng amongst their roster and can now boast the addition of the hotly tipped Distro too. Featuring the moody garage-flecked "Pinnacle" and the deep, wobble-heavy 4x4 of the title track, Flava D also remixes the latter into end-of-the-world speed garage. However, it's the thrilling collision of Bristolian heroes Distro and My Nu Leng on the big-beat- meets-disco-in-bass-town shenanigans of "Sleepless" that's getting the real hype from the likes of B Traits and Monki right now. On fire!

Nick Hannam - "Shapes" - (4:42) 123 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Bolton's Digital Abyss are committed to releasing the 'deepest and dirtiest bass' and with the Dark Matter EP it seems their A&R skills are on fire. This EP compiles output by six different producers, all of whom have a mastered various forms of bass and house. Highlights include the Green-Velvet-goes-4x4 vibes of Aaron Jackson's killer "Stank", Burkie's totally warped garagey take on Robin S' "Show Me Love" and the stark, precise and sinewy UKG of Nick Hannam's "Shapes".

from $1.49
Review: You can rely on Paul Arnold's Fat! Imprint to deliver the goods when its comes to blistering, garage-inspired house belters! On the label's latest release, De Contrebande and Development join efforts to produce three, bass-heavy tech scorchers for your shaking pleasure. "Tell 'Em Like It Is" contains one of the tastiest basslines we've heard in yonks, and the same goes for "Die Tryin'", where the duo blend bass and house into perfect unity. Put quite simply, "Pee In A Bush" is a brain-melting grenade for the dancehall!

Knowing (DJ Break remix) - (5:01) 86 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Swiftly becoming a household name in UK bass, My Nu Leng have demonstrated nothing but class and creativity since day one. Signing to Black Butter has next-levelled them in the way they deserve, and they've just commissioned three powerful reversions of their material for the summer. UKG don Zed Bias has long since been an advocate of "Masterplan", and here he subverts it into a bashy, thundering blend that makes the original look like a lullaby. Next up, Cause & Effect's Lorenzo gets twisted on "You've Been Gone" by way of a paranoid nagging riff. Finally one of D&B's most respected producers Break takes "Knowing" into the 170 pastures it's always deserved to be in. Enveloping bass, resoundingly loose and organic drums and heaps of space... Just like My Nu Leng themselves, Break has demonstrated class and creativity since day one. What a release!

Hundred Years - (3:46) 126 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: ROCUT
Review: It's been a while since we were last treated to a fresh release from Airhead, but now he's back with a four tracker for long time cohort James Blake's 1800-Dinosaur imprint, which finds his wayward beat science spanning all kinds of moods and tempos. The lead track sports some house-orientated signifiers but there's still plenty of room for grubby bass and off-kilter percussion without sacrificing the groove. "Shirin" meanwhile flexes a grime attitude over some loose rolling drums with a hand played feel that offsets the plastic string stabs perfectly. "Shekure" has greater links to the earlier Airhead output, keeping things sparse and fractious while the tense atmosphere reins supreme, and then "Hundred Years" delivers another swerve loaded with powerful pads and tweaked out hip hop vocals.

Gripping Grain (feat Sam Binga) - (3:28) 166 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Lighterman
Review: Last seen on Exit back in 2012 with the excellent Get Busy drop, Charlie 'Fracture' Fieber returns to the label and shows off his Loving Touch on an EP that really ups the production ante. Centre stage here is undoubtedly the title track which looks to two eras of Chicago for inspiration, skilfully borrowing (officially no less) from Ralph Rosario's Chicago House classic "You Used To Hold Me", and rebooting it to a 160bpm footwork flex which retains some UK bassweight and elements of Fracture's own D&B roots. From here Fracture drops a carnival classic in the making in the shape of Machinedrum favourite "Werk It", collaborates with Sam Binga on the 808 club burner "Grippin' Grain" (apparently conceived during a wicked hangover) and ends on a decidedly rude note with the junglist breaks n bass line business of "Overload".

Review: The eighth release on Sccucci Manucci sees the imprint pack a hefty eight productions that traverse various house sounds from around the world onto two slabs of handstamped wax. 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: Birmingham's Four40 have done it again. This time however, it's a compilation affair, featuring their most interesting artists. As per usual, the sounds are sparse and varied, held together only by their potent low-ends which really burst through on proper systems. Juno favourites Cloaka and Killjoy make an appearance, but there's plenty of quality from all corners of the throng. Suck Fake's "Dumbell" is particularly gnarly but the whole lot is bound to cause quite the stir in the old dancehall. It's a UK ting...

Review: The inimitable Hybrid Theory drops quite a number on the Party Like Us imprint, providing what quite possibly some of his freakiest material to date. "Take Me Up" is the bomb here, where HT lashes in a bunch of abrasive snares of a broken house beat that's strictly for the floor - those seductive vocals riding over it are the cherry on the cake. Check "Drege" too, whose low end is about as gnarly as we've heard from the man.

Review: Deckstar and Steve Brooke's Nu Wave label has been on a roll as of late, releasing some of the best new artists around when it comes to funked-out house music. This time, label newbies Ryan & James are accompanied by Chris Pottinger on a full remix EP of their "Ain't Nobody" tune. Chris Gresswell provides a deep, subby bassline, while Cavna is in a party mood with his sample-fuelled, old-school house refix. High Society step up and deliver another bouncy house version, while Boy Raver and Pianoman team up to deliver a Chicago-inspired bomb made purely for a hot, sweaty summer dancefloor.

Review: Steel City producer Deadbeat may not be releasing tunes on labels with such irreverent titles as Off Me Nut Records, but he's still bringing the bass like no other. The "Good 2 To Me EP" is pure 3am, hands-in-the-air fodder and we're not complaining. There are three tracks here covering rolling, ravey, bassline ("Good To Me"), Deep wobble nastiness ("Wheel It Up) and dubby brain-melt 4x4 ("Clear MY Mind"). Also featured is Deadbeat's heavy-as-you-like hyper remix of Killjoy's "Nothing Sweet".

from $1.49
Review: Martyn's 3024 label returns with an extensive collection of works from rising UK house man Leon Vynehall. Originally debuting on Well Rounded Records' Housing Project sub-label back in 2012 with the Mauve EP, Vynehall has since become one of the UK's most in-demand of the new wave of young house producers, releasing subsequent records for George Fitzgerald's ManMakeMusic and Will Saul's Aus as well as collaborating with blog house survivor A1 Bassline under the Laszlo Dancehall alias. Having debuted on 3024 with last year's Open platter, Vynehall is back with Music For The Uninvited, a seven-track collection of tracks supposedly inspired by rides to school in his mother's car as a child in which he would listen to "mixed hip-hop, funk & electro tapes, Janet Jackson albums, Style Council and Stiff Little Fingers". Whilst there is plenty of the individual house sound Vynehall has developed on offer here ("It's Just (House Of Dupree)" is a certified jam) there are also more tranquil moments to bask in such as "Inside The Deku Tree" and "St Sinclair" which bookend this excellent release.

Review: In the wake of all this grime business blowing up at the moment, it seems an apt time be delving into this compilation of early Plastician jams from a time before Mr Hawtin forced him to change his name. Coming at the emergence of dubstep when it was also called sublow or sometimes just grime, it's a thrilling reminder of the possibilities that were opening up in gritty urban electronic music at the time. With a primal approach and that icy minimalism that made the early material so exciting, there's not a duff moment in earshot across the whopping 21 tracks included here, and they've all been remastered for maximum contemporary impact. What more could a bass lover ask for?

Bad Kingdom (Robag Wruhme 4/4 edit Mit Xomlopp remix Schwanz-014) - (10:33) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Here's something of a treat for Moderat fans: a stonking new remix of II album favourite "Bad Kingdom" by German veteran DJ Koze. There's much to admire about his bumping, floor-friendly reinterpretation, which retains the original's woozy, hazy vibe - and distinctive vocals - while gently leading it further towards the dancefloor with arms raised skywards. It's melodic, quietly uplifting and decidedly heavy, even if the percussion does shuffle rather than bang. The (virtual) flipside offers another treat in the shape of an extended 11-minute version of Robag Wruhme's swinging, string-laden re-edit of the same track, which first appeared (in shortened form) on January's "Tour Edition" reissue of II.

Review: The first slab of tracks curated by Modeselektor for Modeselektion Vol. 3 may have been on a more introspective tip, but there's no such holding back to be found on Part 2 as bold colours and tough rhythms abound for the party-starting side to the German duos repertoire. L-Vis 1990 brings the heavyweight boogie influence while Illum Sphere marches forth with an electro urgency, Onra drops some cosmic '80s flourishes, and Brandt Brauer Frick link up with OmMas Keith and Vic Mensa for a mad intersection between broken beat, techno, R&B and plenty more besides. As ever eclecticism and a taste for the unusual define Modeselektor's choices, and they pull it off with style.

Make You Go Crazy - (4:49) 126 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Roska's Kicks & Snares imprint has been concentrating on a variety of styles lately but returns to the realm of dubstep with new signing Jello. Ironically the title track "Speed Trip" is fairly slow - nestling in that murky zone where D&B combines with dubstep to produce a sparse, menacing growler. "Make You Go Crazy" is livelier: fusing old skool Miami freestyle breaks with some deep synth wobble.

from $1.49
Review: As the world continues to rewind to the early 90s for inspiration, only a few producers are doing it with true authority and creativity... Last Magpie is certainly one of them. He's proved this several times before (perhaps most notably with the "1995" EP on Losing Suki) and he's proving it again right now... "Mirdad" is a bass-ravaged stomper with a shattered and splintered vocal garnish, "Pledge" is a slightly brighter, breezier classically-inclined cut with a rolling breakbeat backbone while "I Love Me" is an acid-tickled house cut that splits itself evenly between Chicago and Detroit. For added measure Trevino steps up with a darker, driving take on "Pledge". Influential...

Review: Better known for the expertise on funk, Jalepeno recently took a punt on house producer Marcus Jakes, and it's really paid off. Following the success of "Up To Me", he's back with a new track and he clearly can't contain his joy. "This Much" is an epic accelerator, escorted along by a deep rolling bassline before giving way to hands-in-air piano and evangelical vocals. Fans of the darkside are catered for too with SLK delivering a haunting, breaky techno version.

Review: Like your house deep? Like it sleazy? Like it raw? Good, there's no better way to serve it, and boy do London's Maison Sky serve it. For their latest missive from clubland, these guys have delivered for slices of some serious muscle house with "It Is What It Is" taking the lead - all thumping kicks, early 90s style fuzzy stab loops and soft synth sweeps. Other highlights include the deeper still 6-minute slow burner "Ludes" and the laser jazz techno of "Switch". These guys are totally on top of their game.

Review: A leading light in the bass scene, Foamo's residency at The Fat! is legendary, not to mention his slew of killer remixes and his own releases on labels like Skint. Now he returns with a newie, his first for almost a year, on the Rinse label. It's commercial o'clock for our boy Foamo, but the EP is so solidly produced, that it doesn't matter. The overall theme here is slammin' retro house breaks paired with an ascending urban bass riff and soulful female vocals. All infectious the standout is probably the edgier "Without You".

Review: Dirtybird-affiliate Mark Starr continues to surge to the top with his heady bass fusions... Taking the best elements of booty-bass, ghetto-tech, techno and acid house, there's a stark minimal muscle funk that will resonate across all playlist flavours. Highlights include the smouldering, slinky 808 breakbeat riddim of "Lush", the chiselled low-end beef of "Some Of This" and the superb use of sexy, far-away vocals on "Some Of This". Complete with remixes from Panda, Sepehr, Pete Graham & Marc Spence, Druid Cloak and Panda, Sounds Of Sumo have gone to town in every possible direction. Essential.

All Under One Roof Raving by Jamie xx on Young Turks Cue Track
All Under One Roof Raving - (5:59) 117 BPM
from $1.40
Review: The sampletastic new track from Jamie XX lands in a tongue-in-cheek celebration of all things UK rave orientated, with an understated groove as the backdrop to a wealth of documentary chatter, MC toasts and dancefloor testimonials. Musically, the track deals in delicate steel drum refrains and a twitchy little house beat, but this one is all about the cultural references that will ring true with anyone that grew up exposed to the UK in the mid '90s. As if the point needed hammering home, the sports brand rap at the end of the track will bring a wistful tear to the eye of any former tracksuit-sporters hitting their late twenties.

Review: Cymbal-heavy UK garage beats? Check! Sub-bothering bassline? Check! Dreamy, oddly pitched vocal sample? Check! Sweaty, wide-eyed late night vibe? Check! Result: "23" has all the right ingredients to impress bass music heads - and those into Hypercolour-ish deep house/bass music blends. It also comes backed with a couple of notable remixes, with bass veteran Zinc providing his own typically big VIP version. In truth, it's not that much different from the original, though Zinc's build-up extension, additional wobbly noises and bass EQ'ing work bring the most out of the near-anthemic original. Kry Wolf make the most of the original's dreamy samples and beef up the bottom-end wobble on their in-your-face remix.

Celestian Ditton (FaltyDL remix) - (5:00) 58 BPM
from $1.49
Review: After his Dego moniker burst back onto the scene with a killer release for Eglo alongside regular cohort Kaidi Tatham last year, Dego is going it alone for Falty DL's Blueberry imprint with just the kind of plush broken beat finery you would expect from the man. "Nuts!" even slips a little bit of Hashim into its slow but dextrous rhythm, but largely the funky Moog bass and sublime chords rule the day. "Could Murder A Burger" ramps the energy levels up while getting into a more circular pattern that opens out once some delectable piano chords worm their way in. The original version of "Celestian Ditton" finds Dego drifting into a more dreamy downtempo mood without losing the forwards momentum, which Falty DL then twists up into a more flamboyant version that stays respectful to the source.

Review: Whilst Jack Adams has been producing for a few years under the Mumdance guise, he really seems to have narrowed on a sound lately that's resulted in some truly dynamic club music. After hook-ups with Logos and Tectonic boss Pinch and a superb Twists & Turns mixtape, Mumdance surfaces on the Rinse label with Take Time, a killer release that really sets out the sound he's pushing right now. If you are down with the whole post-Classical Curves grime meets sound design approach that's been bubbling away you will love this, as Mumdance lays down some mind crushing arrangements for Novelist and Spyro to spit lines over. "The Sprawl" is a real highlight and features on the forthcoming mix CD Mumdance has done with Pinch.

The sleazy late night roller "Kings Cross" kicks things off in fine style, before we get into deep agitated UKF territory on "Bump X", "Boyz In Da Hood" goes nasty with infectious claps and harsh mechanical squeals and lastly "Twister" provides a twisted on ravey piano house with added tech shuffle.

Aqueous melodies, dubbed-out beats and just the right level of bass feed into a strong techno backbone; "Up" is a warehouse banger with seductive loops, and "Acid Bath" is a straight tool bumper for the peak hours, but it's "Splash" that really impresses, finishing things off with some much needed - albeit subtle - jackin action.

The remaining two tracks feature trippy producer Ozean, whose deep and gentle "Fatigue" resembles Ron Flatter at his most fragile and the remarkable "One Love," which is both a dazzling and tragic broken beat bleep-fest like no other.

Review: CDBL appears on Hot N Heavy for the first time after rising through the ranks of other labels Sounds Of Sumo and Orlinzo. Here CDBL delivers two killer cuts of club music for the peak time while keeping the euphoria to a minimum. This is best heard in "Watch Out" which sounds like a club-ready 2014 remake of Mr Oizo's "Flat Eric" while the title track fuses catchy hooks with groovy drums and liquid basslines with a hint of acid. It also comes with four remixes - two of each track - with Mark Starr's version of "Come On" getting slow and dirty while Hybu's effort works the bass and adds a synth that sounds like it's impersonating a falling star. Pasteman collaborator Tanka adds vocals to his mix percussive remix, while Commodore 64 injects the EP with some refreshing techno.

from $1.49
Review: French fusionista Izem steps up to Gamm with three international boundary-smelting funk gems that star point blank into the future while retaining strong roots to the past. "ITT" is almost techno in its relentlessness as it breaks into a hyper-charged, steppy Afrobeat. With its Latin licks and clipped chants, "Celia" is so Brazilian you can hear the cheers from Rio Maracana Stadium. Finally, "Hajja" is the most retrospective of the three thanks to its electro boogie bass, lavish pianos and sultry French vocal. Three edits made wholly his own, each of these cuts emphatically explains why Izem has enjoyed white hot hype from the Wah Wah crew, Gilles Peterson and Quantic.

Review: Coventry's Suck Fake most recent release, the Can't Leave EP generated much hype, even hitting top our very own Bass/UK Garage charts. Now he's back to bring more heat with Four40 with pal Daniel Brooks in tow. The summer vibes are all over this single, none more so than on the carnival-centric "Coconut" with its lilting steel drum riffs, throbbing sub frequencies and skippy garage beats. Brooks sticks around for the similarly tropically tinged funky roller "Movin", before Suck Fake delivers the thoroughly nasty solo doom-houser (and our fave) "Ravin".

Review: UK bass nutters Panda, are pretty mysterious but their music is certainly gaining fame from all angles, landing with a bump on Sounds Of Sumo for three-tracker packed with an arsenal of remixes. "Rewind", "That Girl" and "We Breathe" are all mutant numbers with a shed load of low-end and general dread but the remixes manage to morph the originals into utter floor filth. Check the Tomb Crew piece especially - large...

Review: Kicking off the double-headed mix album opus that forms the third such compilation on their own Monkeytown imprint, this EP offers up the individual tracks for those who crave them. The first disc unfurls in serene electronica tones from such luminaries as Fennesz, Nosaj Thing and somewhat surprisingly The Fall. Akkord's supple, dark techno gets channeled here into a more brooding broken beat excursion, but it's more of an exception to the sweet-natured quality in most of the tracks. When the likes of Howling and Born In Flamez close out the compilation, the tone has shifted to outright indie styles with a Sigur Ros regality about them.
